Genshin Impact 2.5 will mark the arrival of the long-awaited Yae Miko.

Although we are some months away from her arrival, it is never too early to get the resources you'll need to power her up.

With that in mind, here's our farming guide for getting your materials ready for Yae Miko's arrival in the first Character Banner of Genshin Impact 2.5.


Release Date

Yae Miko will likely arrive in the first Genshin Impact 2.5 banner on February 16, 2022.

Yae Miko Farming

Yae Miko oversees the Grand Narukami Shrine and is the owner of the Yae Publishing House. Miko is a kitsune from the Hakushin Clan and possesses a fox form. Leaks indicate we will see her Kitsune tail in one of her abilities.

Yae Miko is a 5-star Electro character. Her weapon is a catalyst that resembles a Kaura Suzu, a purple relic with bells.

Ascension Materials for Yae Miko

These are the ascension materials you'll need for Yae Miko:

Dragonheir's False Fin is a character level-up material dropped by the Bathysmal Vishap Herd, new bosses introduced in Genshin Impact 2.4.

  • These bosses are located in Enkanomiya, the underwater region in Inazuma.
  • Players need x46 Dragonheir's False Fin for an Lv. 90 Yae Miko.
  • Bathysmal Vishap Herd drops 2-3 of these materials once they are defeated for a cost of 40 resins.

For the World Material, despite being the Priestess in charge of the Sacred Sakura Tree, we will not need Sakura Blooms, instead Sea Ganoderma.

Sea Ganoderma is a local specialty of Inazuma, a plant that grows on beaches and tidal flats around the shore.

  • Players need 168 Sea Ganoderma for an Lv. 90 Yae Miko.
  • There are 68 Sea Ganoderma in the wild refreshing every 48hrs.
  • You can grow 12 Sea Ganoderma in the Serenitea Pot every 70 hrs.

Handguards - Yae Miko will use the materials dropped by Nobushi and Kairagi from Inazuma. Players can find these Samurai warriors in most regions of Inazuma.

  • To level up Yae Miko to Lv. 90 travelers require:
    • 18 Old Handguard
    • 30 Kageuchi Handguard
  • 36 Famed Handguard

Talent Materials

Nobushi and Kairagi are Samurai warriors that drop the same common materials, Handguards. The best farming route for these materials is on Yashiori Island. To maximize Miko's Talents, players need:

  • 18 Old Handguards
  • 66 Kageuchi Handguards
  • 93 Famed Handguards

Light Series are talent-level books that players can obtain in the Violet Court domain, on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday.

  • To max Yae Miko's Talents, players need to collect:
    • 9 Teachings of Light
    • 63 Guide to Light
  • 114 Philosophies of Light

Leaks indicate that we are receiving a new trounce domain in Genshin Impact 2.5. The weekly boss of this domain will drop the materials for Ayato and Yae Miko.

It seems the Raiden Shogun will be this new boss. However, there is no information in regard to the types of materials she drops.

Yae Miko Best Artifacts

Yae Miko banner is most likely to include Kuki Shinobu, a new 4-star Electro character that will be the best support for Yae. We also know that Miko will not have Energy Issues.

The best set for Yae Miko seems to be four pieces of Shinenawa's Reminiscence. So, we recommend farming this artifact focusing on Elemental Mastery but do not discard any piece yet, until we know which other sub-stats will work best with Yae.

Additionally, players need Vajrada Amethyst, common crafting material for Electro Characters, and tons of Mora to level Yae Miko to the highest level.
