Yoimiya is a Pyro Bow DPS character in Genshin Impact. She excels as a single target Main Pyro DPS thanks to her incredibly powerful Normal Attacks, however, her kit is flexible enough to run optimally in most reaction teams. As Yoimiya does not benefit from her Burst, a lot of players underestimate her.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the best Genshin Impact Yoimiya build guide in 2022, including talents, gears and team comp.

1. Yoimiya Genshin Impact Overview

Genshin Impact Yoimiya Build

She is the daughter of Naganohara Ryuunosuke and the current owner of Naganohara Fireworks. With her colorful fireworks and outgoing personality, Yoimiya is loved by everyone on Narukami Island, as they believe summer is not the same without her.


  • Deals damage from a safe distance.
  • Elemental Burst buffs party members' ATK.
  • Can spam Elemental Burst with its low Energy Cost.
  • Refunds materials when crafting furnishings.
  • Great against Single-Target Enemies.


  • Normal Attacks will only target the closest enemy.
  • Elemental Burst's ATK buff doesn't apply to herself.
  • Not effective against mobs.

2. How to use Yoimiya effectively?

Overall Yoimiya is a fairly easy-to-play character - players only need to use her Skill and normal attacking, after boosting her damage with support characters.

Most Damage Comes From Elemental Skill -> Normal Attack combo

Yoimiya's Elemental Skill, Niwabi-Fire Dance, imbues her Normal Attacks with Pyro for a short period of time. Use it as often as you can to get the most out of Yoimiya's Normal Attack DMG!

Elemental Burst Great For Sub-DPS

Yoimiya's burst marks an enemy with a fireworks mark. If a teammate hit that mark, it will explode, dealing AoE Pyro DMG. She can't trigger her own elemental burst, but it is a decent utility ability if players run a good Sub-DPS. Off-field supports can also trigger the effects of her burst.

One of Yoimiya's biggest weaknesses is that its main source of damage does not have an AOE option. This can be remedied by using an Electro off-field support like Beidou and Fischl to create an overload reaction with Yoimiya's Burst.

3. Best Genshin Impact Yoimiya build

Overall, Yoimiya works best as the main DPS of the team.

Best Weapon

Thundering Pulse on Yoimiya
  • Thundering Pulse: The perfect weapon that synergizes with Yoimiya's normal attack build. Players can get up to 40% extra normal attack DMG at R1, after casting Yoimiya's Elemental Skill.

Alternate weapons

  • Skyward Harp: A good alternate option if you don't have the Thundering Pulse. Its skill gives Yoimiya some AoE damage to deal with her weakness.
  • Rust: This is a good bow for Yoimiya, however, it can only be acquired from Wish.
  • Hamayumi: This is the best F2P weapon for Yoimiya - it increases her Normal attack damage by a decent amount, especially at R5.

Best Artifact

Shimenawa Reminiscence
Shimenawa's Reminiscence on Yoimiya
  • Echoes Of An Offering x4: This artifact set boost Yoimiya's normal damage greatly. When using this set, her normal attacks have a change of triggering Valley Rite, which increases Normal Attack DMG by 70% of the user's current ATK.
  • Shimenawa's Reminiscence x4: This is the classic Normal attack boosting set for Yoimiya - it consumes some energy to boost her damage.

Shimenawa can deal more damage than Echoes Of An Offering at the cost of less uptime for Elemental Burst. If you are going to use Shimenawa's Reminiscences, it is recommended to stack up on Energy Recharge too.

Alternate artifacts

  • Crimson Witch Of Flames x4: Good artifact set to boost Yoimiya's Pyro damage if you don't have the above two sets.

Recommended Artifact Sub stats

Overall, the sub-stats Yoimiya needs are just the same as the other DPS characters. Players just need to stack as much Crit and ATK% as possible on her, with Elemental Mastery being a side option for Pyro Reactions.

4. Yoimiya Constellations and Talent Priority


While Yoimiya does not need constellations to work, her constellations give a lot of bonus damage. The best ones are C1 and C2:

  • C1: Allow Yoimiya to gain some benefit from her Burst. However, the effect is useless against boss stages where there is only one powerful enemy.
  • C2: Gives Yoimiya a lot of Pyro damage, as her Elemental Burst reaction can trigger the extra effect easily.

Unlocking Yoimiya's second constellation is a good stopping point for unlocking most of her potential. Her C6 may look tempting, but that relies on RNG and cost a lot of money.

Talent Priority

Yoimiya mainly deals damage with her normal attacks so players need to max that talent first. Her Elemental Burst has more utility compared to her Elemental skill, but each should be leveled up somewhat equally.

5. What are the best teams for Yoimiya?

Yoimiya 4-star Team (Vaporize)

  • Yoimiya + Xingqiu + Bennett + Yun Jin

This build is geared toward free-to-play and light spender, without any 5 stars in the lineup other than Yoimiya. Overall, Xingqiu serves as a Hydro enabler for Yoimiya, triggering Vaporize with his Burst and Yoimiya's skill set. Try to get Xingqiu to at least 170% energy recharge and give him the sacrificial sword for the highest uptime possible for his burst.

Xingqiu is one of the best supporters you can get for Pyro characters.

As usual, Bennett is here to do Bennett things such as healing and damage boost. He also unlocks Pyro resonance for Yoimiya to deal more damage. Yun Jin will act as a shield support while buffing Yoimiya's Normal Attack DMG.

Yoimiya Premium Team (Vaporize)

  • Yoimiya + Yelan + Kazuha + Yun Jin 

This team works pretty much the same as the previous lineup, with Yelan replacing Xingqiu in the support slot. She is overall a superior Xingqiu, with the ability to provide a whopping 50% damage boost to the on-field characters. Kazuha's Elemental Mastery boost will increase Yoimiya's Vaporize damage greatly, on top of his RES reduction with the Venerer set.

Best Yun Jin Character Builds
Yun Jin is the perfect support for Yoimiya. Her C6 can increase Yoimiya's attack speed even further.

Yun Jin is the best support for normal attack characters like Yoimiya. With 4 characters of 4 different elements, players can unlock Protective Canopy for +15% all RES.
