Top builds for Yoimiya in Genshin Impact

Yoimiya is known for her cheerful personality and colorful fireworks. She is currently the owner of the Nagonohara Fireworks and a playable 5-Star character in Inazuma.


Yoimiya is a 5-star Pyro Bow user that focuses on dealing consistent Pyro damage to enemies. She is the current owner of the Nagonohara Fireworks and is also known as the "Queen of the Summer Festival". Using her skills she infuses her attacks with the Pyro element. Yoimiya works best as the main DPS. However, Yoimiya can be vulnerable and you must invest in good Support characters to increase her survivability in the field.

Yoimiya's Talents

Firework Flare-Up

Holding Yoimiya's Charged attack will cause the arrows to hone in on enemies.

Firework Flare-up is Yoimiya's normal, charged, and plunging attack. Her normal attacks can perform up to 5 succeeding shots. Yoimiya's Charged has two levels. Holding it for a short period of time will shoot a Pyro-infused attack on enemies. Holding it for longer will charge up to 3 kindling arrows, which will follow nearby enemies and deal Pyro damage on hit. Both charged attacks have increased damage.

Niwabi Fire Dance

Activating Niwabi Firedance will cause Yoimiya's attacks to become infused with Pyro.

Niwabi Fire Dance is Yoimiya's elemental skill. Activating this skill will infuse Yoimiya's normal attacks with the Pyro element. Holding your charged attack for longer will not generate kindling arrows whenever this skill is activated, so it is best to use her normal attacks instead. When you switch Yoimiya with another character, this effect will be deactivated.

Ryuukin Saxifrage

Aurous Blaze can go to the next enemy when you defeat the marked enemy within the mark's duration.

Ryuukin Saxifrage is Yoimiya's elemental burst. She will leap into the air, dealing Pyro damage to nearby enemies. One of the enemies will gain the Aurous Blaze mark. If any other party member aside from Yoimiya attacks, uses an elemental skill or burst on the opponent that currently has the Aurous Blaze mark, that action will trigger an explosion, dealing AoE Pyro damage. The mark can transfer to another opponent if the enemy died before the duration of the mark ends.

Summer Night's Dawn

Yoimiya's passive ability can buff your teammates as well.

You can unlock Summer Night's Dawn at Ascension Phase 4. After using Ryuukin Saxifrage, all members aside from Yoimiya will gain a 10% increase in attack. The effects on the Tricks of the Troublemaker can stack up with this passive. The attack bonus effect has a duration of 15 seconds.

Blazing Match

The utility passive of Yoimiya focuses on saving resources when making furniture.

Blazing Match is Yoimiya's utility passive. Whenever she crafts a decoration, ornament, or landscape furniture, she will refund some of the materials used when creating the furnishing.

Best Build for Yoimiya

Yoimiya works best as the main DPS because of her Pyro-infused attacks.

Yoimiya works well as a main DPS because her elemental skill infuses with the Pyro element.

Keep an eye out on your elemental skill and deal as much damage as you can whenever your elemental skill is activated.

Team Compositions

Main DPS Yoimiya

This team focuses on characters that can support Yoimiya off-field.

Yoimiya works best with Xingqiu because she can perform constant Vaporize damage even when Xingqiu is off-field. Aside from this, Bennett will give you an attack buff and act as the healer of the team. Having 2 pyro characters in your team will increase your attack damage by 25%. You can also add Fischl for an Overload reaction whenever Xingqiu's skills are on cooldown. This team focuses on increasing Yoimiya's attack and creating reactions with characters that are off-field.

Overload Team

Baal or the Raiden Shogun is great for Yoimiya because she can constantly cause Overload damage.

The benefit of having Yoimiya as your main DPS is that she can proc the Overload elemental reaction without being affected by the AoE explosion and knockback. Just like the last party, Bennett will act as your main healer and support. You can add Baal or the Raiden Shogun to the team because her elemental skill can be used off-field, constantly applying Electro to enemies. She will also act as your sub-DPS in this team. For the last slot, you can add Beidou or Kujou Sara to your battery.

Free to Play

Adding Noelle to your team can give you extra shield and sustain during fights.

For a free-to-play team, you can add Amber to get the attack increase buff on the Pyro resonance. Kaeya will act as your battery and melt reaction. The last slot is quite flexible, you can add Lisa so you can have a sub-DPS and overload reaction. You can also add Barbara as your healer. However, if you have Noelle, she can give Yoimiya both a shield and extra healing.

Summary

Yoimiya is the current owner of the Nagonohara Fireworks.

Yoimiya is a 5-star Pyro character that uses the Bow. Her elemental skills infuse her normal attacks with the Pyro element, making her a good constant Pyro DPS. Yoimiya works best with characters that can support her off-field. Raiden Shogun, Xingqiu, and Fischl can cause elemental reactions for Yoimiya without having to be on the field.
