As usual, miHoYo shared a new Genshin Impact Collected Miscellany trailer. Each one of these videos features Yuri “Dainsleif” Lowenthal talking about the latest addition to the cast. The new one goes over the moveset and special abilities for Yae Miko, which might help people think about a possible artifact set and build for her. One thing to keep in mind for her is that Elemental Mastery matters.
First, the video kicks off with Yae Miko’s more standard attacks. Her normal and charge attack involves the Spiritfox Sin-Eater, which deals Electro DMG. All of her attacks rely on Electro DMG. So when she uses her Yakan Evocation: Sesshou Sakura Elemental Skill, she can set up to three Sesshou Sakura in the field to hit enemies with lightening. Her Great Secret Art: Tenko Kenshin Elemental Burst will cause any Sesshou Sakura in the field to deal AOE Electro DMG while also dealing AOE Electro DMG on its own. Should you ascend Yae Miko, her fourth Enlightened Blessing passive will make her Sesshou Sakura deal more damage based on Elemental Mastery scaling.
This means when preparing a Yae Miko build, it could be handy to go with artifacts that boost Electro DMG or Elemental Mastery. Mondstadt’s Midsummer Courtyard Domain is home to Thundering Fury. If two of these artifacts are equipped, the character gets a 15% Electro DMG bonus. With four, Electro-related reactions like Electro-charged, Overloaded, and Superconduct do 40% more damage and can reset an Elemental Skill’s cooldown by one second. Given her reliance on Electro DMG and Elemental Mastery, going with items from this set that increase both could be helpful.
Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices. It will also come to the Nintendo Switch. The Yae Miko banner will be available until March 8, 2022.
