Use Normal Attack Main DPS Characters

Yun Jin's Elemental Burst, Cliffbreaker's Banner, will buff the Normal Attacks of all party members, so players will want to use a main DPS who primarily deal damage by using Normal Attacks. Their Elemental Type will not matter in this case.

Yun Jin also has a somewhat high Elemental Burst cost. Though not necessary, we suggest adding one Geo character if you feel that it's needed to supplement her Energy Recharge or if it fits the needs of the party!

How to Use Yun Jin

Support Geo Character

Genshin - Yun Jin Elemental Burst Buff
Yun Jin is designed as a support Geo character who uses her Elemental Burst to buff the entire party's Normal Attacks based on her current DEF stat.

By unlocking her 4th ascension, she receives a passive that increases her DEF based on the number of different elemental characters in the party when she uses her Elemental Burst!

Elemental Skill Explanation

Hold Down for More Damage

Genshin - Yun Jin - Elemental Skill Charges
Elemental Skill Charges: Level 1 and Level 2

During Yun Jin's Elemental Skill, she will perform the Opening Flourish stance and begin charging the attack. During this, she will be protected by a shield based on her max HP.

After fully charging or when her shield breaks, she will unleash the attack in a wide AoE that scales in damage based on her current DEF stat!

Parry with Elemental Skill

Opening Flourish

Charge Level 1

Charge Level 2
Genshin Impact - Yun Jin Perfect Parry
Perfect parry timing

Like Beidou's Tidecaller Skill, Opening Flourish will deal max damage if the skill is used just as an enemy's attack hits. You can tell if it was timed correctly by how bright the flags on her back appear.

Shieldbreak Leads to Less Damage

Yun Jin Elemental Skill Shield Break

If Yun Jin's shield breaks before being able to charge the level 2 version, she will cast the skill early instead. Though the skill will always deal max damage if fully charged, players should still always take advantage of its parry capabilities.

Elemental Burst Explanation

Buff Party's Normal Attack DMG

Genshin - Yun Jin - Elemental Burst
Elemental Burst: Cliffbreaker's Banner

Using Yun Jin's Elemental Burst, Cliffbreaker's Banner, allows her to grant all party members the Flying Cloud Flag Formation; an ability that buffs the active character's Normal Attack DMG and deals AoE Geo DMG to her enemies when cast!

What is Flying Cloud Flag Formation

Genshin - Yun Jin Elemental Burst
Bonus DMG is based on Yun Jin's current DEF and will be added when the active character deals Normal Attack DMG. This means that any buffs she receives that increase her total DEF will contribute to the bonus DMG she will provide!

This buff can only be triggered 30 times. Hitting multiple enemies with a single Normal Attack will trigger this effect multiple times based on the number of opponents hit!

More Than 200% Energy Recharge Recommended

Depending on how many different Elements are in your team and how many energy particles they can create, Yun Jin will need around 200% - 240% in order to comfortably use her Elemental Burst off cooldown.

Increase DEF by Different Elements in Party

Genshin - Yun Jin attacks
Yun Jin's talent, Breaking Conventions, will increase her DEF based on the number of different elements in the party.

At most, you should only use three different elements in the party since the resonance bonus provided by two of the same element can outweigh the small DEF increase provided by the talent.

Best Elemental Resonance Setup

Cook Adventure Food

Genshin - Yun Jin
When Yun Jin achieves Perfect Cooking on dishes with Adventure-related effects, she has a chance to double the number of dishes produced!

Adventure-related effects include food that increases stamina or reduces cold buildup.
