Below are two of the best Yoimiya builds right now. You can keep reading to find out the hows and whys of these particular Yoimiya builds, but if you've used her before, you'll quickly understand the thought process behind her best weapon and artifact choices.
|Role||Best Weapon||Best Artifacts||Alternative Artifacts|
|Pyro DPS Build||Thundering Pulse||Crimson Witch of Flames (4 Pieces)||Gladiator's Finale (2 Pieces) & Crimson Witch of Flames (2 Pieces)|
|Crit DPS Build||Skyward Harp||Berserker (4 Pieces)||Berserker (2 Pieces) & Gladiator's Finale (2 Pieces)|
Pyro DPS Yoimiya build
Since the idea of this build relies on spamming your Elemental Skills as Main DPS and triggering reactions with your party members, there is not a real difference between the weapons suggested above; it’s more about what’s convenient for you since both bows act perfectly well, with Amos' Bow being a bit better.
Regarding Yoimiya's artifacts, Crimson Witch of Flames provides a more than interesting effect while using the four Pieces of this set. That being said, if you wanna feel safer and invest in extra Attack, you can also mix a 2-2 set of Crimson Witch of Flames and Gladiator's Finale.
Crit DPS Yoimiya build
This Yoimiya build relies on her natural Critical Rate and Critical damage without focusing too much on elemental reactions. With a great native Critical Rate and a significant augment to Yoimiya’s Physical Attack and Critical Damage Values, the Skyward Harp sword plays really well as an all-rounder piece of equipment.
On the artifact side, the Berserker set gives a huge buff to Critical Rate when you use the four Pieces and it's really easy to get, which makes it the perfect choice. If you feel like it could use more attack, you can make a 2-2 mixed set with Gladiator's Finale
What are the best weapons for Yoimiya?
Weapons like the Skyward Harp that boost Critical Rate, or the Amos Bow and its Damage boost effect, are the only real good options for these builds. You can also find a more affordable and equally good alternative in the form of the Rust bow. Last but not least, if you’re looking for a craftable option, you can obtain the Hamayumi if you still don’t have any of the former.
What are the best Artifacts for Yoimiya?
Depending on which Yoimiya build you choose to make, you may need the Crimson Witch of Flames and Gladiator's Finale sets in case you want to use Yoimiya as a Pyro DPS, or mixing Berserker with Gladiator's Finale for Crit purposes. How many of these you choose to equip on her will depend on your gameplay, so it is suggested that you test different builds and how they work as mixed or full sets before you decide.
What are Yoimiya's skills and Talents?
Yoimiya's Elemental Skill will turn her attacks into Pyro attacks, which can help a lot since it allows you to trigger Reactions very easily while also having the damage values of these attacks augmented. Her Elemental Burst is an aggressive AoE attack that can wipe out large groups of enemies with explosions.
What are the best team comps for Yoimiya?
A good team comp for Yoimiya wants to take advantage of how often she can trigger Reactions. Xingqiu will help to spam Vaporize as Sub DPS, with Bennet creating the passive boost that the Pyro Resonance offers while also helping to heal the party. Last, Yun Jin offers the needed sustain for all these characters to work.
What are Yoimiya's Constellations?
If you get to pull Yoimiya multiple times, you will eventually reach a level of the constellation that will turn her into an excellent DPS unit, with improvements on all her Skills and their respective cooldowns, making Yoimiya a great tool to wipe out enemies on the battlefield.
What are Yoimiya's Ascension materials?
Ascending Yoimiya boosts her Critical Rate stats more than anything else, a welcomed improvement that makes her a great DPS. Farming the Pyro Hypostasis can take a while, but it's more than worth the effort when it lets you improve a unit as helpful as Yoimiya.
What are Yoimiya's Talent level-up Materials?
An important part of building Yoimiya is remembering to level up her talents and abilities. The order in which you go about this will change slightly depending on the role you expect her to play in your team, but here's the most common Yoimiya talent upgrade order:
- Normal Attack
- Elemental Burst
- Elemental Skill
