Yaoyao is a Dendro Spear user. She was  Xiangling's junior disciple under the same martial arts master but has since become an assistant for Ganyu. She is going to debut in the upcoming Genshin Impact 3.4 patch, the very first patch of 2023.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything to know about Genshin Impact Yaoyao talents, constellations and ascension materials.

Genshin Impact Yaoyao

1. Genshin Impact 3.4 Yaoyao Talents

Yaoyao's Ascension Stat is Max HP - she is going to be yet another easy-to-build support character.

Normal Attack - Toss ‘N’ Turn Spear

  • 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.

Elemental Skill - Raphanus Sky Cluster

Calls upon “Yuegui: Throwing Mode,” a special device created by a certain adeptus to help Yaoyao solve her problems. Holding the skill will enter Aiming Mode to adjust the throw direction. Scales based on MAX HP.

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 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 nearby characters have more than 70% HP on average, then it will throw the radish at a nearby opponent.
  • If nearby characters have 70% or less HP on average, 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 have more than 70% HP on average.

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

“A radish a day keeps trouble away! … Oh, this isn’t about a radish’s medical properties, exactly, but it does have some health benefits, yeah!”

CD - 15s

Elemental Burst - Moonjade Descent

At the enjoinment of a certain adeptus, Yuegui’s full potential can be unleashed in an emergency, causing it to enter an (in some sense) invincible Adeptal Legacy state, dealing Dendro DMG to nearby opponents. Scales based on MAX HP.

Adeptal Legacy

  • White 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.
  • Summons “Yuegui: Jumping Mode” at intervals until their limit has been reached. The radish-throwing behavior of this version of Yuegui is the same as that of Yuegui in the Elemental Skill, Raphanus Sky Cluster. A maximum of 3 Yuegui: Jumping Mode can exist at any one time.
  • When White Jade Radishes explode, they will heal all nearby characters and the Dendro DMG they deal is viewed as Elemental Burst DMG.
  • Yaoyao’s Movement SPD and Dendro DMG will be increased.

When Yaoyao is off-field, she will no longer summon Yuegui: Jumping Mode.

“Eh? Which one of these is actually Yuegui, you ask? Aren’t they all Yuegui?”

2. Genshin Impact 3.4 Yaoyao Passives

Ascension Passive 1 - Starscatter

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.

Ascension Passive 2 - In Others’ Shoes

When White Jade Radishes explode, active characters within their AoE will regain HP every 2s based on 20% of Yaoyao’s Max HP. This effect lasts 6s.

Utility Passive - Tailing on Tiptoes

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

3. Genshin Impact 3.4 Yaoyao Constellations

C1 Adeptus’ Tutelage When White Jade Radishes explode, active characters within their AoE will gain 15% Dendro DMG Bonus for 8s and have 15 Stamina restored to them. This form of Stamina Restoration can only be triggered every 5s.
C2 Innocent While affected by the Adeptal Legacy state caused by Moonjade Descent, if White Jade Radish explosions damage opponents, 3 Energy will be restored to Yaoyao. This form of Energy regeneration can occur once every 0.8s.
C3 Loyal and Kind Increases the Level of Sky Raphanus Cluster by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.
C4 Winsome After using Raphanus Sky Cluster or Moonjade Descent, Yaoyao’s Elemental Mastery will be increased based on 0.3% of her Max HP for 8s. The maximum Elemental Mastery she can gain this way is 120.
C5 Compassionate Increases the Level of Moonjade Descent by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.
C6 Beneficent When Yuegui: Throwing Mode throws out a White Radish, there is a 50% chance that it will throw out a Mega Radish that will have a larger AoE than the standard White Jade Radish and have the following effects upon exploding:

  • 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.
