Genshin Impact’s new 1.6 update has released on June 9, 2021. As the new patch 1.6 lands, new characters from a new soon-to-be-released region, Inazuma, will also be released. There are 4 characters to be released namely Kazuha, Yoimiya, Ayaka and Sayu to be released in the Midsummer Island Adventure update. In this Genshin Impact guide, we will talk about all you need to know about Yoimiya, her builds and the materials required for her ascension.
Yoimiya: Playstyle and skill-set of the character
Yoimiya, who is known as the Queen of the Summer Festival is considered the best pyrotechnician in Inazuma. She has a child-like innocence and enjoys social interactions with her peers. Yoimiya is a 5-star Pyro Bow user, and her constellation is Carassius Auratus. The following are her talents, skills, and attacks.
|Name / Description||Type|
|Firework Flare-up||Normal Attack|
|Yoimiya shoots up to 5 consecutive times with her bow.|
|Firework Flare-up||Charged attack|
|Charge 1: Yoimiya fires a flaming arrow from her bow dealing pyro damage to enemies hit.|
Charge 2: If Yoimiya continues to charge after the first one, she will fire up to 3 flaming arrows into her enemies dealing pyro damage on hit.
|Firework Flare-up||Plunge attack|
|Yoimiya fires a volley of arrows as she plunges on her enemies dealing damage as she hits the ground.|
|Teika Enshou||Elemental Skill|
|During this period, Yoimiya’s Normal Attack arrows will be Blazing Arrows, with their DMG boosted and converted to Pyro DMG. During this period, the 2nd Charged Level of Normal Attack: Firework Flare-Up will not generate Kindling Arrows. When Yoimiya leaves the field, this effect will be deactivated.|
|Auros Blaze||Elemental Burst|
Yoimiya shoots scorching rockets bursting with surprises that deal AoE Pyro DMG and mark one of the hit opponents with Aurous Blaze as her original creation, the “Ryukin Saxifrage” and jumps into the skies.
All Attacks, Elemental Skills, and Elemental Bursts used by any party member other than Yoimiya that hit an opponent marked by Aurous Blaze will cause explosions that deal AoE Pyro DMG. When an opponent affected by Aurous Blaze is defeated during the length of the skill, the effect is passed on to another adjacent opponent, who inherits the remaining duration.
- Blazing Match: Yoimiya has a 100 % chance of refunding a portion of resources used when crafting Decoration, Ornament and Landscape-type Furnishing.
- Tricks of the Trouble-maker: Hits with Yoimiya’s Normal Attack during Teika Fire-Dance raise her Pyro DMG Bonus by 2%. This effect lasts 3 seconds and can stack up to 10 times.
- Summer Scorch: Using Ryukin Saxifrage grants nearby party members (except Yoimiya) a 10% ATK boost for 15 seconds. ATK Bonus will also be added based on the number of “Tricks of the Trouble-Make” stacks Yoimiya has when using Ryukin Saxifrage. This ATK Bonus is increased by 1% for each layer.
Sets to farm for Yoimiya in Genshin Impact
There are two recommended artifact sets to be farmed for Yoimiya. These two include the likes of ‘Crimson Witch of Flames’ and ‘Noblesse Oblige’. Both of these artifact sets are great on Yoimiya for different reasons. Noblesse Oblige would be better for a more supportive build for Yoimiya as it gives additional damage to the main DPS of the team. Crimson Witch of Flames, however, would greatly increase her supportive DPS capabilities with her pyro skills.

Best weapons for Yoimiya in Genshin Impact
With Yoimiya being a DPS or a support DPS, character weapons with Elemental Mastery, Crit rate and Team buffs would be a great addition to her abilities.
- Skyward Harp (5*)
- Elegy for the End (5*)
- Windblume Ode (4*)
- The Stringless (4*)
As a Character Specialty Dish, Summer Festival Fish can only be obtained by preparing Tricolor Dango with Yoimiya. Players can get it through an in-game mail, which will be delivered on Yoimiya’s birthday.
With all that being said, we cannot wait for the addition of Yoimiya to the already great Pyro user line-up. She would be a great addition to the rosters in Genshin Impact.
