Yae Miko is an addition to the Electro character in Genshin Dampak Impact. This Yokai Inazuma is best used for his Elemental Skill damage, which can deal a decent amount without Miko having to be in the field. The Kitsune skill will use a Fox Turret called Sesshou Sakura. Three of them can exist in the field at once.
Since Sesshou Sakura is a major part of her playing style, of course, the mistakes people make also revolve around her abilities. From misapplying to not using it at all, here are some mistakes that players can make when using Yae Miko in Genshin Dampak Impact.
7 Using the Wrong Burst Yae Miko
Elemental Burst Yae Miko enters Genshin Dampak Impact really easy. This is simply the ability to summon thunder and deal massive damage to enemies in the area. However, before using it, players must remember to use Miko’s Sesshou Sakura first. It’s also important to keep them in the vicinity of the target enemy and not waste AoE abilities.
Each of her Fox Turrets will explode when Yae Miko uses her Elemental Burst, so players can deal much higher damage compared to her Burst alone. In comparison, at level 10, Burst damage initially had a 468% multiplier. But with three Sesshou Sakura, the number accumulated to 2268%.
6 Not Using Elemental Skills After Casting Burst
The massive damage increments are tempting, but players must remember that when Sesshou Sakura explodes, they will be ejected from the field. Fortunately, Yae Miko’s first passive will restore one charge of her Skill when this happens. So the player must get three Fox Tower Stacks after the Burst ends.
Now, To ensure Yae Miko continues to deal damage off the field, players must remember to use Sesshou Sakura again. So the rotation is: EEE Q EEE (three Skills, one Burst, and three more Skills).
5 Focusing on Yae Miko’s Elemental Burst Damage
Once accumulated, Yae Miko’s Elemental Burst damage seemed to be the main feature of her kit. However, the real star of his move sequence was actually Elemental Skills. Because of that, players cannot build Yae Miko in Genshin Dampak Impact with items that increase Elemental Burst Damage. For example, artifacts like Noblesse Oblige or Emblem of Severed Fate are not very optimal in Guuji.
Therefore, when leveling up Yae Miko’s talent, players had to prioritize her Skill before Burst. Meanwhile, Kitsune’s Normal Attack can be left unleveled.
4 Not Having Three Sesshou Sakura at Once
Sesshou Sakura Yae Miko’s damage starts from level one, and can go up to level three (four if the player has C2 Yae Miko). To increase the skill level, players only need to deploy a few Sesshou Sakura. Since players need three Fox Towers to reach the max level, they must remember to always use up all their stacks (EEE). From level one to four, Yae Miko’s Skill multiplier nearly doubled, while from one to three, the number increased by about 50%.
Making sure there are three Fox Turrets at once will also make it easier for players to time their Elemental Burst usage.
3 Misspread Sesshou Sakura
While it’s true that players should deploy three Sesshou Sakuras at once, they shouldn’t do this task mindlessly. The Turret’s level will only be increased when they are summoned near another Fox. So if players use Yae Miko’s Elemental Skills too far from the existing Sesshou Sakura, they will find that her abilities are not upgraded properly.
For example, if a player summons three Tower Foxes while holding down the button to move forward, they will find abilities that are level two, three, and two (respectively). Meanwhile, if players place them near each other, Sakuras Sesshou must all be level three. Conversely, if the player summons them too close to each other, the overlap can cause the existing Fox Turret to be destroyed instead.
2 Playing Yae Miko As The Ultimate DPS
As pretty as Yae Miko’s Normal Attack animation is, unfortunately it’s not meant to be used. He has one of the lowest multipliers among Catalyst users, making him a poor choice for a DPS. Even with the existence of a buffer like Kujou Sara, Kitsune’s damage was still too small to last.
Therefore, when playing Yae Miko, people should still use it as a Sub-DPS. As a Catalyst user who has a stable DoT Skill, Travelers can also use Guuji as a support buff by using the Hakushin Ring or Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers and 4-Tenacity of the Millelith.
1 Focusing on Elemental Mastery
Yae Miko’s damage came mostly from her Elemental Skills, so increasing this ability was the best street players could do. To help further with this task, HoYoverse gave Guuji some bonuses from his second passive. For every Elemental Mastery point she has, Miko will get 0.15% Skill DMG bonus.
However, Travelers should be aware that these bonuses are mostly there so the Elemental Mastery substats won’t go to waste. Focusing on Elemental Mastery won’t end up as good as using regular ATK/Electro/Crit main stats. This applies even if the player uses Miko in Reaction Company.
