Yaoyao is a Dendro Spear user whose design was revealed in Genshin Impact's beta back in 2020. She is going to debut in the upcoming Genshin Impact 3.4 patch, the very first patch of 2023. Apparently, Yaoyao is the long awaited Dendro healer for Bloom teams. She is going to use a polearm and will be a great unit to combo with Nilou and Nahida.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything you need to know about Yaoyao's Ascension and Talent materials so that they can pre-farm for her.

Nagadus Emerald

Nagadus Emerald is the ascension stone for all Dendro characters. Yaoyao is not an exception.

Nagadus Emerald

Players can get them by doing the following:

  • Defeating Jadeplume Terrorshrooms or Dendro Hypostasis
  • Nagadus Emerald can be randomly obtained from Chests, Daily Commissions, and Events.
  • Players can convert other types of gemstone into Nagadus Emerald using Dust of Azoth, or merge lesser emeralds into higher tier ones, at a rate of 3:1.

Quelled Creeper

Quelled Creeper is a drop from the Dendro Hypostasis, a new world boss introduced in Genshin Impact 3.2. It is the last Hypostasis to be added to the game. The Dendro Hypostasis drops 2-3 pieces of these materials once it is defeated for the cost of 40 resins.

Dendro Hypostasis

The Dendro Hypostasis is a Normal Boss challenge found in Land of Lower Setekh, Sumeru.

Yuejun Chili

Jueyun Chilis are a Local Specialty found in various areas of Liyue. Players can gather it from all over the region - just follow the below map at least 2 times to gather enough chili for fully ascending Yaoyao.

How strong is Yaoyao?


Yaoyao is a pretty straightforward character. Her Skill summons a pet that throws bombs to heal allies and damage enemies. Her Burst also summons a version of that pet, which does the same thing.

This allows Yaoyao to be a top-tier Dendro support, who can also heal. This pretty much removes the weakness of a Bloom/Hyperbloom lineup, which is the self-damage from Dendro Cores explosion.


  • C1: 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: 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.

Yaoyao's constellations are also amazing - her C1 gives 15% Dendro damage bonus for teammates on top of stamina regeneration. On-field characters who use Charged Attacks like Alhaitham should be able to make use of this.

Her C2 regenerates energy massively, allowing Yaoyao to get her 80 energy cost Burst up more frequently.
