Yun Jin as a support character will want to level up her Elemental Burst first since it's the primary source of her support abilities. Comparatively, her Elemental skill is not particularly strong but should still be leveled.

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.

Yun Jin's In-Game Information

Character Thoughts on Yun Jin

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Hu Tao ImageHu Tao Yun Jin always appears so graceful on formal occasions, but you'd be surprised how friendly she is in private! I made a bet with her once, and the loser had to sing lyrics of the winner's choice in their own singing style. My my, I wish you could have heard her operatic version of the Hilitune!
Genshin Impact - Keqing ImageKeqing When you're passing by Heyu Tea House and have to squeeze your way through the biggest crowd you've seen in your life, that's when you know Yun Jin's on stage performing. There's not a merchant in Liyue who wouldn't buy up the place if they had the chance, and Yun Jin is the reason it would be worth every Mora.
Genshin Impact - Ningguang ImageNingguang Yun Jin... Are you able to appreciate her performances? It might be difficult at first, but I would encourage you to give it a chance. The reason why I decided to invest into her opera troupe is quite simple: Elegant art forms like these deserve to be passed down to future generations.
Genshin Impact - Shenhe ImageShenhe Yun Jin performs... It's called "Liyue opera," isn't it? I like this particular type of social interaction. You can get to know about the other person's background without having to actually interact with them one on one. If she ever includes your story in one of her performances, I'm sure the result will end up being quite incredible. I'm looking forward to it.
Genshin Impact - Xingqiu ImageXingqiu When Yun Jin drinks a beverage she is fond of, she will be inspired to write a new play. So, I keep a jar of tea leaves under my bed at all times, ready to deliver to her on the day that her inspiration dries up. This way, I shall never run out of heroic tales to listen to!
Genshin Impact - Xinyan ImageXinyan Tell you a secret ー but you gotta keep it that way, you hear? She’s fond of rock ‘n’ roll. Comes to watch me at least three times a week no matter how packed her schedule is. You’d think that the head of Heyu Tea House’s troupe would be into finer arts and all, eh? But I guess it gets suffocating after a while. Haha.

Yun Jin's Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Hu Tao ImageHu Tao About Hu Tao
Ah yes, Hu Tao. Very expressive face, and she has a sharp mind too - you can be discussing the most mundane thing in the world, and she'll always bring out a string of witty remarks. I admire her a lot. There's never a dull moment when you have friends like her around.
Genshin Impact - Kazuha ImageKazuha About Kazuha
Kaedehara Kazuha is among the many outlanders who enjoy Liyue opera. Whether it's an orchestral section or a percussive piece, he always sits there and listens quietly. Talk about great manners!
Genshin Impact - Keqing ImageKeqing About Keqing
I have yet to see the Yuheng ever attend an opera performance. Now that I think about it, whenever I happen to see her out on the street, she always seems to be in a great hurry.
Genshin Impact - Ningguang ImageNingguang About Ningguang
The Tianquan is a big spender and has made several very generous donations to our troupe. I can only return her generosity by delivering my best possible performance.
Genshin Impact - Shenhe ImageShenhe About Shenhe
I have long since known "The Divine Damsel of Devastation" inside out, back to front, but it was only very recently that I learned that the "divine damsel" in question is actually a real person. Life is full of strange twists sometimes! My only hope is that she can find true friendship and never be lonely again.
Genshin Impact - Xingqiu ImageXingqiu About Xingqiu
Oh, so you are also acquainted with Xinggiu? Haha, he is quite the clever one, and with a sharp wit as well. The moment you let your guard down, you're at risk of becoming the butt of one of his practical jokes... Don't say I didn't warn you.
Genshin Impact - Xinyan ImageXinyan About Xinyan
The elders of the troupe are always harping on about rock 'n' roll being a bad influence. Needless to say, they never approve of me going to see Xinyan's shows. "It's for your own good," they say. Hmph, all it's really about is their inability to accept anything new. Whatever, those old fogies can't tell me what to do. I'm going to keep rocking out at Xinyan's gigs, every week, and that's that.
Genshin Impact - Zhongli ImageZhongli About Zhongli
The customs of the opera are very particular, and are passed down from generation to generation. Sometimes I find that I only know the hows but not the whys behind what we do. But when speaking with Zhongli, it is abundantly evident that he knows the origins behind almost everything. Who wouldn't be delighted to have such a connoisseur in their audience?
