Yae Miko is a strong Electro user in Genshin Dampak Impact. He oversees the Narukami Great Shrine, and also acts as the owner and operator of the Yae Publishing House. He has a broad background that you have learned in the game when he was just an NPC, and the storyline gets richer as a playable character.
He is renowned for his vast knowledge, nerdy ways, and defined by his kindness. Often depicted with a smile on her face, Yae Miko is a light-hearted person despite a serious list of titles. At the same time, many have noted that he can be outspoken and even somewhat selfish when talking to Traveler and Paimon.
10 Raising Yae Miko’s Skills
Almost all of Yae Miko’s combat revolves around using Saura Fox Turrets, which means you’ll want to level her up based on those abilities. His talent mainly lies in his Elemental Skills, so that should be your first concern.
Once you have a high Elemental Skill, you can then focus on the Elemental Burst because it’s decent, even if it’s not as good as the Skill. Once both of them level up, you can add their Normal Attack, which is their weakest area in battle.
9 Constellation Yae Miko
Fortunately, the best parts of the Miko Constellation are C1 and C2. C1- known as the Yakan Offering – gives Yae Miko eight Elemental Energy credits back when the Tenko Thunderbolt has been activated.
C2 – known as Fox’s Mooncall – increases Sesshou Sakura’s attack range by 60 percent, and increases her max level to four. This is useful on its own, but will also allow you to build on it with other Constellation points.
8 Yae Miko’s Opening
Since her Saura Fox Turret is responsible for most, if not all, of the damage Yae Miko deals, you’ll want to take the lead with them. When you take him to the field, start with his Elemental Skill three times, then use his Elemental Burst once.
At this point, Yae Miko will be out of energy and on cooldown, so trade her for someone else on your team – but don’t worry, her Electro Catalyst will still deal damage to enemies from off the field.
7 Strong Weapons Make Strong Fighters
Yae Miko’s Normal attacks are pretty simple, unfortunately, so you’ll have to compensate for that with a powerful weapon. Focus on high crit damage and Attack increases from his Catalyst options – for example, Veritas or Kagura Width.
With the right weapon in hand, Yae Miko can be very formidable with her Normal Attack. However, his Elemental Skills and Elemental Burst were extremely helpful in combat, so choosing a weapon should increase his value on the team, not ‘redeem’ him where he was lacking.
6 Building a Yae Miko on a Budget
The best free-to-play weapon you can pair with Yae Miko is the Hakushin Ring. While it doesn’t offer a huge critical damage increase, it’s a solid choice as a four-star weapon you can forge yourself.
The main benefit is the Energy Recharge it offers – between six and 30 percent depending on level – something that will come in handy with the tired Yae Miko.
5 Versatile Artifact For Yae Miko
Yae Miko is rare among Genshin Impact characters as she works with almost all Artifacts. As long as you focus on equipping him with Artifacts that will increase his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst, you’ll find it easy to manage.
If you want to make him a hard hitter and increase his damage, you’ll want to use the Thundering Fury set specifically. You can also pair a Thundering Fury Artifact with some of the Wandering Troupe to achieve a similar result.
4 He Needs Secondary Fee
No matter how you team up with Yae Miko, always make sure to have at least one other Electro user in the group to help give him a boost. If this isn’t an option for you, you’ll need the weapon to have an Energy Recharge status or substat.
Yae Miko drains easily – especially since her best attacks are also her strongest – so you’ll often be pulling her off the field. Especially if you don’t have an Electro user to charge it again.
3 Call Doctor For Support
Another key component for Yae Miko’s team is Healers – Qiqi, Barbara, or even Noelle will suffice. This applies to all teams in Genshin Impact, but since Yae Miko only deals massive amounts of damage in short bursts, you’ll want her to stay alive – something she can’t do on her own.
Yae Miko doesn’t heal naturally, and as an offensive fighter, she doesn’t have much defense, meaning she will rely heavily on her teammates to keep her protected and healthy in battle.
2 He’s Your Support
Genshin Impact Yae Miko Inazuma 2.0
Plan to use Yae Miko as your team’s Sub-DPS, but never become the main one. Yae Miko had limited Normal Attack, and even when upgraded and equipped with weapons and Artifacts that could increase her Normal Attack, it was still weak.
However, his powerful Elemental Burst and Electro-Catalyst abilities make him an excellent Sub-DPS as he can hit enemies with massive damage, then you spin him around until he’s ready for another powerful explosion.
1 Miko Works Best With Raiden Shogun
Yae Miko works very well in a team with Raiden Shogun – who is also her best friend off the battlefield. Both girls’ elements are Electro, so this helps maintain Yae Miko’s durability, and their skills complement each other as Raiden Shogun’s Normal Attack is quite strong.
If you don’t have Raiden Shogun, you can also use Fischl, another powerful Electro user, who can build from the powerful Elemental Burst Yae Miko to create a solid foundation for your team.
