Press: Flourishes her polearm in a cloud-grasping stance, dealing Geo DMG.
Hold: Takes up the Opening Flourish stance and charges up, forming a shield.

DMG Absorption is based on Yun Jin’s Max HP and has 150% effectiveness against all Elemental DMG and Physical DMG. The shield lasts until she finishes unleashing her Elemental Skill. When the skill is released, when its duration ends, or when the shield breaks, Yun Jin will unleash the charged energy as an attack, dealing Geo DMG.

Based on the time spent charging, it will either unleash an attack at Charge Level 1 or Level 2.
Cliffbreaker’s BannerElemental Burst
Deals AoE Geo DMG and grants all nearby party members a Flying Cloud Flag Formation.   Flying Cloud Flag Formation:   When Normal Attack DMG is dealt to opponents, Bonus DMG will be dealt with based on Yun Jin’s current DEF. The effects of this skill will be cleared after a set duration or after being triggered a specific number of times. When one Normal Attack hits multiple opponents, the effect is triggered multiple times according to the number of opponents hit. The number of times that the effect is triggered is counted independently for each member of the party with Flying Cloud Flag Formation.

Special Dish

  • Name: Lotus Seed and Bird Egg Soup
  • In-game Description: Yun Jin’s specialty.

This sweet and sticky snack will somehow not affect the throat in any negative way. Therefore, it is Yun Jin’s favorite. The aftertaste is most elegant, not something one would get sick of quickly. This is quite a decent bit more than she would usually make for herself— but who are you to question her kindness?

Buff Effect: It decreases all party members’ sprinting Stamina consumption by 25% for the 1500s. In Co-Op Mode, this effect only applies to their own characters.

Artifacts sets for Yun Jin in Genshin Impact

In this Genshin Impact Yun Jin guide, we will provide details for all the artifact build sets for Yun Jin in the game.

Buffer / Support Build

Yun Jin’s kit is focused on providing support, where her skills scale with Defence. With that in mind, her best slot pick artifact should be 4pc Husk of Opulent Dreams. This artifact not only has a 2pc bonus of 30% DEF increase, it also has stacks that provide Geo DMG Bonus and more DEF% increase, overall the best choice for her.

  • Husk of Opulent Dreams
  • Set Bonuses
  • 2-Piece Bonus: DEF +30%
  • 4-Piece Bonus.
  • A character equipped with this Artifact set will obtain the Curiosity effect in the following conditions:
    • When on the field, the character gains 1 stack after hitting an opponent with a Geo attack, triggering a maximum of once every 0.3s.
    • When off the field, the character gains 1 stack every 3s.
    • Curiosity can stack up to 4 times, each providing 6% DEF and a 6% Geo DMG Bonus.
    • When 6 seconds pass without gaining a Curiosity stack, 1 stack is lost.

Yun Jin benefits from three stats mainly DEF%, Geo DMG Bonus%, and ER%, Therefore, the priority should always be these three stats. These stats can be provided through artifact main stat, substats, or from set bonuses from different artifact sets.

If one cannot have 4pc Husk of Opulent Dreams, then the player can go for two options. One of them includes the likes of a 2pc hybrid. It can be either 2pc Husk of Opulent Dreams and 2pc Emblem of Severed Fate or 2pc Husk of Opulent Dreams along with 2pc Archaic Petra. They are obviously inferior to 4 pc of Husk of Opulent Dreams but will work for now, as players can farm more for her. Even without 4pc Husk of Opulent Dreams, 2pc Hybrids are good enough for her to provide solid buffs. 4pc Archaic Petra is also somewhat of a viable choice. However, maintaining the condition for the said artifact to provide buff is quite difficult, so it is not recommended.

Artifact Stats Priority

Min maxing is very important, so one shouldn’t have too much of any one stat or there will be diminishing returns and wasted potential. If you feel like you have bought Defence. Therefore, he must focus on Energy recharge or vice-versa, same goes for crit stats but they are tough to max out.

Desired Substats: DEF% = ER% > CR% AND CD%

ArtifactMain StatSub Stat Priority
FlowerHPDEF%> ER%> CR%/ CD%
PlumeATKDEF%> ER%> CR%/ CD%
SandsDEF%DEF%> ER%> CR%/ CD%
GobletDEF%DEF%>ER%> CR%/ CD%
CircletDEF%DEF%> ER%> CR%/ CD%

Sub DPS/ Main DPS Build

Her kit is focused on support. So, the main DPS build will not be very good and is not recommended at all. However, if players want to make her deal more damage then build her with a focus on cirt stats.

The Artifact sets should be more or less the same, with 4pc Husk of Opulent Dreams being the best set but artifact priority will change a bit.

Desired Substats: CR% AND CD% > DEF% = ER%

Artifact TypeMain StatSub Stat Priority
FlowerHPCR%/ CD%> DEF%= ER%
PlumeATKCR%/ CD%> DEF%= ER%
SandsDEF% / ER%CR%/ CD%> DEF%= ER%
GobletGeo DMG Bonus%CR%/ CD%> DEF%= ER%
CircletCR% / CD%CR%/ CD%> DEF%= ER%

Flower and Plume are the easiest to farm for good sub-stats. As for the sands it depends on what you need more, DEF% and ER% are the choices, don’t go for ATK% as she doesn’t scale with it. For Goblet, Geo DMG Bonus is the most obvious choice for her, for increased dmg. For Circlet, Crit Rate will be very good for her if she has a Favonius Lance, as it needs crit procs for the passive to work. If she has Deathmatch equipped, then Crit Damage should be the way to go.

ER% requirement for Yun Jin

Yun Jin is a Geo character with a high burst cost. This makes it difficult for a lot of support characters to provide her with enough energy. With that being said, she will need at least 170%- 180% ER% in total, depending on the weapon and the overall team. A weapon like Favonius Lance will be good enough for her. But if someone uses Deathmatch, then that requirement will increase depending on the team but it should be close to 190%-210% energy recharge, test your team out when she arrives to get a correct estimate.

Best weapons for Yun Jin

Yun Jin’s entire kit is focused on supporting and providing a buff to other main DPSs. With that in mind, her best weapons will be those with an ER% substat. It is primarily Favonius Lance or the Catch. She has a high ER% requirement for her burst’s uptime, so ER% weapons are the way to go. If players have got enough Energy recharge from other sources, then Deathmatch is also a viable choice. Skyward Spine is also a good choice for her, but Favonius Lance is superior to most weapons as it provides a lot of energy particles due to its passive. Therefore in this guide, we will provide the details for the best weapons for Yun Jin in Genshin Impact.

Favonius Lance

Favonius Lance
  • Base ATK– 565 (Level – 90)
  • Substat– 30.6% Energy Recharge

Skyward Spine

  • Base ATK– 674 (Level – 90)
  • Substat- 36.8% Energy Recharge
Genshin Impact Yun Jin Guide
Skyward Spine

Weapon Passive: Blackwing

It increases CRIT Rate by 8% and increases Normal ATK SPD by 12%. Additionally, Normal and Charged Attacks hits on opponents have a 50% chance to trigger a vacuum blade that deals 40% of ATK as DMG in a small AoE. This effect can occur no more than once every 2s.


  • Base ATK– 674 (Level – 90)
  • Substat– 36.8% Energy Recharge

Best Characters to pair with Yun Jin

Yoimiya is by far the best character to pair with Yun Jin, as her kit is heavily focused on dealing damage through normal attacks which Yun Jin buffs a lot.

Ayaka will also work with her, as she also deals a lot of dmg through Normal Attacks when on the field. Ningguang, Childe, Eula are some other characters that can be great for her and bring out her true buff potential.

Characters like Raiden won’t work with her as Raiden burst skill dmg is counted as burst dmg and not normal attacks, so no benefit. Another character is Itto whose main source of dmg is through charged attacks so he won’t work that well either.
