Here is a comprehensive build guide for Yoimiya, one of the best 5-star Pyro characters in Genshin Impact.

Yoimiya Build Guide


Normal Attack: Firework Flare-Up

Normal attack: Performs up to 5 consecutive shots with a bow.

Charged attack:

Perform a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG.
While aiming, flames will accumulate on the arrowhead before being fired off as an attack. Has different effects based on how long the energy has been charged:

  • Charge Level 1: Fires off a flaming arrow that deals Pyro DMG.
  • Charge Level 2: Generates a maximum of 3 Kindling Arrows based on time spent charging, releasing them as part of this Aimed Shot. Kindling Arrows will home in on nearby opponents, dealing Pyro DMG on hit.

Plunging attack: Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Elemental Skill: Niwabi Fire-Dance

Yoimiya waves a sparkler and causes a ring of saltpeter to surround her.

Niwabi Enshou
During this time, arrows fired by Yoimiya’s Normal Attack will be Blazing Arrows, and their DMG will be increased and converted to Pyro DMG.
During this time, Normal Attack: Firework Flare-Up will not generate Kindling Arrows at Charge Level 2.

This effect will deactivate when Yoimiya leaves the field.

Elemental Burst: Ryuukin Saxifrage

Yoimiya leaps into the air along with her original creation, the “Ryuukin Saxifrage,” and fires forth blazing rockets bursting with surprises that deal AoE Pyro DMG and mark one of the hit opponents with Aurous Blaze.

Aurous Blaze
All Normal/Charged/Plunging Attacks, Elemental Skills, and Elemental Bursts by any party member other than Yoimiya that hit an opponent marked by Aurous Blaze will trigger an explosion, dealing AoE Pyro DMG.
When an opponent affected by Aurous Blaze is defeated before its duration expires, the effect will pass on to another nearby opponent, who will inherit the remaining duration.

One Aurous Blaze explosion can be triggered every 2s. When Yoimiya is down, Aurous Blaze effects created through her skills will be deactivated.

Passive Talents

Tricks of the Trouble-Maker

During Niwabi Fire-Dance, shots from Yoimiya’s Normal Attack will increase her Pyro DMG Bonus by 2% on hit. This effect lasts for 3s and can have a maximum of 10 stacks.

Summer Night’s Dawn

Using Ryuukin Saxifrage causes nearby party members (not including Yoimiya) to gain a 10% ATK increase for 15s. Additionally, a further ATK Bonus will be added on based on the number of “Tricks of the Trouble-Maker” stacks Yoimiya possesses when using Ryuukin Saxifrage. Each stack increases this ATK Bonus by 1%.

Blazing Match

Yoimiya has several good weapons in the game, including some great free-to-play 4-star weapons. The 5-star bow, Thundering Pulse is Yoimiya’s best in slot weapon, which can be obtained from the weapon banner. Besides Thundering Pulse, Polar Star and Skyward Harp are two other 5-star weapons that are really good weapons for Yoimiya because you can get decent CRIT Rate stats from them. The Stringless is the best 4-star weapon for Yoimiya because it will increase Elemental Skill damage for Yoimiya. Meanwhile, Rust is mostly considered the best 4-star option for Yoimiya. Her only free-to-play option is Hamayumi which can be crafted if you can collect the weapon blueprint from Inazuma.

Yoimiya is a Pyro DPS with a lot of damage potential thanks to her strong talents. She is classified as a Pyro carry because she can mostly dish out decent Pyro damage on her own, and with great elemental reactions, the damage will significantly increase. But, playing with Yoimiya is tricky because she can only target a single enemy while she is on the field.

For a standard Pyro DPS build, 4-piece Shimenawa’s Reminiscence set is the best for Yoimiya, or the 4-piece Crimson Witch of Flames is also a solid set for her.

Since Yoimiya is a Pyro hyper carry, she must be on the field for the majority of the time, dealing significant damage with her elemental skill. Yoimiya’s normal and charged shots might deal decent damage, but the charged shot takes too much time.

Yoimiya’s elemental skill Niwabi Fire-Dance, she will wave a sparkler, and a ring of saltpeter will surround her. After casting her skill, Yoimiya’s normal attacks will turn into Pyro bow shots, which will damage and increase over time. This is the only skill Yoimiya can use to damage enemies.

Yoimiya’s elemental burst, Ryuukin Saxifrage, will make Yoimiya leap into the air and fire forth blazing rockets bursting with surprises that deal AoE Pyro DMG and mark one of the hit opponents with Aurous Blaze. While the opponents are marked, if any other party member hits the opponent, it will cause explosions. This is more of a support skill of Yoimiya, which will significantly benefit other party members.

Yoimiya can only be played as an on-field DPS, and she can deal raw Pyro damage, or she can shine in vaporize or melt team comps. Yoimiya can pair up with Xingqiu, Yelan, Kamisato Ayato, or Chongyun for the best elemental damage output, and Bennett or Yunjin can buff Yoimiya’s attack a lot.
