Toss 'N' Turn Spear

Toss 'N' Turn Spear

Normal Attack

Normal Attack
Performs up to 4 consecutive spear strikes.

Charged Attack
Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward, dealing damage to opponents along the way.

Plunging Attack
Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Raphanus Sky Cluster

Raphanus Sky Cluster

Elemental Skill

Calls upon “Yuegui: Throwing Mode,” a special device created by a certain adeptus to help Yaoyao solve her problems.
This skill will be used differently in Holding Mode.

Enters Aiming Mode to adjust the throw direction.

Yuegui: Throwing Mode
Throws out White Jade Radishes that will explode upon hitting characters or opponents, dealing Dendro DMG to opponents within a certain AoE, and healing characters within that same AoE based on Yaoyao’s Max HP. If a radish does not hit either an opponent or a character, the radish will remain where it is and explode on contact with a character or opponent, or will explode after its duration expires.
Yuegui: Throwing Mode will choose its radish-throw targets.

  • If all nearby characters have more than 70% HP remaining, then it will throw the radish at a nearby opponent.
  • If nearby characters have 70% or less HP remaining, it will throw a radish at the character with the lowest HP percentage remaining. If no opponents exist nearby, Yuegui will throw White Jade Radishes at characters even if they all have more than 70% HP remaining.

A maximum of 2 instances Yuegui: Throwing Mode can exist at any one time.

Moonjade Descent

Moonjade Descent

Elemental Burst

At the enjoinment of a certain adeptus, Yuegui’s full potential can be unleashed in an emergency, dealing Dendro DMG to nearby opponents and entering an (in some sense) unsurpassed Adeptal Legacy state.

Adeptal LegacyWhite Jade Radishes generated will be changed to heal and deal DMG according to this skill. Explosions will heal all nearby party members, and the Dendro DMG that they deal will be viewed as Elemental Burst DMG instead.

Summons “Yuegui: Jumping Mode” at intervals until their limit has been reached. The behavior of this version of Yuegui is the same as that of “Yuegui: Throwing Mode” in the Elemental Skill, Raphanus Sky Cluster. A maximum of 3 Yuegui: Jumping Mode can exist at any one time.

Yaoyao’s Movement SPD is increased by 15%.
Yaoyao’s Dendro RES will be increased.

The Adeptal Legacy state will end once Yaoyao is off-field, and all remaining Yuegui: Jumping Mode will be cleared once this state ends.



1st Ascension Passive

While affected by the Adeptal Legacy state caused by Moonjade Descent, Yaoyao will constantly throw White Jade Radishes at nearby opponents when she is sprinting, jumping, or running.

She can throw 1 White Jade Radish this way once every 0.6s.

In Others' Shoes

4th Ascension Passive

When White Jade Radishes explode, active characters within their AoE will regain HP every 1s based on 0.8% of Yaoyao’s Max HP. This effect lasts 5s.

Tailing on Tiptoes

Tailing on Tiptoes

Utility Passive

When Yaoyao is in the party, your characters will not startle Crystalflies and certain other animals when getting near them.

Check the “Other” sub-category of the “Living Beings / Wildlife” section in the Archive for creatures this skill works on.

Genshin Impact Yaoyao Constellations from C1 to C6

Deals AoE Dendro DMG based on 75% of Yaoyao’s ATK.

Restores HP for the active character based on 7.5% of Yaoyao’s Max HP.

Every Yuegei: Throwing Mode can throw out a maximum of 2 Mega Radishes.

Genshin Impact Yaoyao​ Team Combo

Yaoyao is best at providing healing and Dendro elemental resonance. However, her Dendro application isn’t the highest, which means in Bloom-based teams she should ideally be run alongside another Dendro character like Nahida, Dendro Traveler, or Collei.

Electro characters like Beidou, Raiden Shogun, Yae Miko, Keqing, or Fischl are all good options. You’ll need two Electro characters for Aggravate; for Spread, one Electro and one additional Dendro like Alhaitham or Nahida.

Genshin Impact Yaoyao


Yaoyao can be an off-field dendro and healer.


Cyno works well with any off-field Dendro because he needs reactions.


Fischl is for energy regeneration of the party.


Nahida for Elemental Resonance.

Genshin Impact Yaoyao​ Weapon

The Favonius Lance is an excellent choice for Yaoyao as its passive, Windfall, will help her support the team by generating Elemental Particles with Crit hits.

If you have Favonius, you’ll want to build Crit on her Circlet and ensure you attack a few times on-field.

Favonius Lance

Favonius Lance

Base ATK 565 | Energy Recharge 6.7% (30.6%)


CRIT Hits have a 60~100% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12~6s.

Black Tassel

Black Tassel

Base ATK 354 | HP 10.2% (46.9%)

Bane of the Soft

Increases DMG against slimes by 40~80%.



Base ATK 565 | Elemental Mastery 24 (110)

Stillwood Moonshadow

After triggering Burning, Quicken, Aggravate, Spread, Bloom, Hyperbloom, or Burgeon, a Leaf of Revival will be created around the character for a maximum of 10s. When picked up, the Leaf will grant the character 16~32% ATK for 12s. Only 1 Leaf can be generated this way every 20s. This effect can still be triggered if the character is not on the field.

Genshin Impact Yaoyao​ Artifact Sets

The 4pc Deepwood Memories is an excellent set for Yaoyao on Dendro damage-heavy teams. However, if you’re really looking to get the most out of her healing, the 4pc Maiden Beloved set gives it a serious buff.

Deepwood Memories

Deepwood Memories

  •  2-piece effect: Dendro DMG Bonus +15%.
  • 4-piece effect: After Elemental Skills or Bursts hit opponents, the targets’ Dendro RES will be decreased by 30% for 8s. This effect can be triggered even if the equipping character is not on the field.
Maiden Beloved

Tenacity of the Millelith

Tenacity of the Millelith

  • 4-piece effect: When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s.

Ocean-Hued Clam

Ocean-Hued Clam

  •  2-piece effect: Healing Bonus +15%.
  • 4-piece effect: When the character equipping this artifact set heals a character in the party, a Sea-Dyed Foam will appear for 3 seconds, accumulating the amount of HP recovered from healing (including overflow healing). At the end of the duration, the Sea-Dyed Foam will explode, dealing DMG to nearby opponents based on 90% of the accumulated healing. (This DMG is calculated similarly to Reactions such as Electro-Charged, and Superconduct, but is not affected by Elemental Mastery, Character Levels, or Reaction DMG Bonuses). Only one Sea-Dyed Foam can be produced every 3.5 seconds. Each Sea-Dyed Foam can accumulate up to 30,000 HP (including overflow healing). There can be no more than one Sea-Dyed Foam active at any given time. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.
