What Is The Best Yoimiya Build In Genshin Impact?

Yoimiya is a 5-Star Pyro Bow user in Genshin Impact and the head of Naganohara Fireworks in Inazuma City.

An outgoing individual, Yoimiya is an absolute chatterbox with a heart of gold and is beloved by everyone on Narukami Island.

Following her family's tradition, every customer is given a completely custom firework and a slip of paper that only the Naganohara family can read detailing exactly how that firework was made.

This way, families can pass down their custom pieces from generation to generation, in the Naganohara's own interpretation of Eternity.

Yoimiya Best Artifacts

Genshin Impact Yoimiya Shimenawa's Reminiscence

ARTIFACTS: Shimenawa's Reminiscence is the way to go

Ayaka's damage mostly comes from her Pyro DMG, so a 4-piece Shimenawa's Reminiscence set will suit her perfectly.

It almost seems like the set was specifically made for her.

  • 2-Piece Shimenawa's Reminiscence Set
    • ATK +18%
  • 4-Piece Shimenawa's Reminiscence Set
    • When casting an Elemental Skill, if the character has 15 or more Energy, they lose 15 Energy, and Normal/Charged/Plunging Attack DMG is increased by 50% for 10s.

For those without a full set of Shimenawa's Reminiscence, Yoimiya also works well with a 2-Piece Crimson Witch of Flames and 2-Piece Gladiator's Finale.

  • 2-Piece Crimson Witch of Flames
    • Gain a 15% Pyro DMG Bonus
  • 2-Piece Gladiator's Finale
    • ATK +18%

When picking pieces for any set, players should look for ATK%, Pyro DMG, and Crit DMG.

ZHONGLI: He will have order

Yoimiya is a Main DPS and works best with Xingqiu, Bennet, and Zhongli.

There are not many team comps out there that do not have Bennet for healing and attack buffs, while Xingqiu will make sure Yoimiya is putting out consistent Vaporize DMG.

Zhongli provides excellent shield support, allowing Yoimiya to get a bit closer to enemies while also debuffing foes.

Another team comp that works well for F2P fans consists of Amber, Kaeya, and Noelle, providing Elemental Resonance, Melt DMG, shielding, and healing.

Yoimiya's constellations are all really solid, allowing her to do more damage over a more consistent period of time.

Even a C1 Yoimiya poses much more of a threat than a C0, and it will be interesting to see where she finally lands on the Genshin Impact Character Tier List once players have had a chance to put her through her paces.
