Bennett and Kazuha also provide the best buffs for both Raiden and Yae Miko with minimal investment. It also enables the Overloaded reaction!

How to Use Yae Miko

Spawn Electro Fox Turrets

Genshin - Yae Miko Elemental Skill
Elemental Skill: Yakan Evocation - Sesshou Sakura

Yae Miko's Elemental Skill, Yakan Evocation - Sesshou Sakura, places a Sesshou Sakura fox turret that periodically attacks an enemy, dealing Electro DMG. A maximum of three Sesshou Sakuras can be placed at a time.

Place the Fox Turrets Close

Genshin - Yae Miko Sesshou Sakura Position Close
To maximize the Sesshou Sakura damage, all of them need to close and connect together. The most efficient to do this is by creating a small triangle. Note that you can create a turret right beside the other one, as long as you don't create another one in the same place!

Unlock Ascension Passive to Reset

Genshin - Yae Miko Passive Talent The Shrine
After unlocking The Shrine's Sacred Shade passive talent, destroying a turret will reset the cooldown for one of the turrets as well. A turret is destroyed once you deploy a new turret on the field or when the duration runs out.

Can be used to Dash Away from Enemies

Genshin - Yae Elemental Skill Dodges
When you use a Sesshou Sakura Yae Miko will teleport a short distance forward, if you're running and backwards if you're idle. Skillful use of this would put some distance from enemy attacks and create another turret to strike enemies!

However, you need to carefully place it away from potentially harmful items (like exploding barrels, torches, or water) to avoid hurting Yae Miko or your party.

Elemental Skill Forward and Backwards

Elemental Skill Animation

Forward (While Moving)

Backward (While Idle)

Yae Miko's Elemental Skill have different animations; when used while running or walking, she will dash forward and when she's idle or just standing for a short period of time, she will dash backward!

Electrify Enemies with Burst

Genshin - Yae Miko Elemental Burst
Elemental Burst: Great Secret Art - Tenko Kenshin

When Yae Miko uses her Elemental Burst, she will use up all nearby Sesshou Sakura to deal devastating AoE Electro DMG. After the initial hit, succeeding bolts of lightning will strike the area based on the number of Sesshou Sakura available prior to usage!

Fox Turrets increase Burst DMG

Without Fox Turrets With Fox Turret

To increase Yae Miko's Elemental Burst, you need to deploy her fox turrets so that it pulses more with Electro DMG!

Deal AoE Damage with Charged Attacks

Genshin - Yae Miko Normal Attacks
Normal Attack: Spiritfox Sin-Eater

Yae Miko's Normal Attacks can combo up to three times and her Charged Attacks can deal AoE Electro DMG in a straight line, which can be quite useful against mob enemies.

Animation Cancel Yae Miko's Charged Attack

Genshin - Yae Miko Charged Attack Animation Cancel
While Yae Miko has a powerful Charged Attack, the animation has quite a long wind up which takes up time. You can cancel this long animation by jumping as soon as you see the Electro Fox wind Yae Miko's right shoulder!

Great Secret Art: Tenko Kenshin

Talent Description
Legends of "kitsunetsuki," or the manifestation of a kitsune's might, are common in Inazuma's folktales. One that particularly captures the imagination is that of the Sky Kitsune, said to cause lightning to fall down upon the foes of the Grand Narukami Shrine. Summons a lightning strike, dealing AoE Electro DMG.
When she uses this skill, Yae Miko will unseal nearby Sesshou Sakura, destroying their outer forms and transforming them into Tenko Thunderbolts that descend from the skies, dealing AoE Electro DMG. Each Sesshou Sakura destroyed in this way will create one Tenko Thunderbolt.
Flavor Text:
Only at times like these will Yae reveal her Sky Kitsune form and wield lightning itself. None have seen the Lady Guuji's tails and lived to tell the story... so remember, as far as you are concerned, Lady Yae does not have a tail.

Tenko Thunderbolt DMG 334%

Yae Miko's In-Game Information

Character Thoughts on Yae Miko

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Ayaka ImageAyaka I have always greatly enjoyed working with Guuji Yae. Organizing festival affairs generally takes a lot of effort and doesn't generate much income, but Guuji Yae's events always come off both elegant and profitable.
Genshin Impact - Ayato ImageAyato Lady Guuji has been kind to us in the Kamisato Clan, but she has never quite taken to me personally. I trust you'll have heard the way she refers to me... "the Yashiro rascal" and other such flattering monikers. We run into each other semi-regularly, given the overlap in our work, and despite whatever private thoughts we each may have, our working relationship is quite a harmonious one. I have no great objection to this state of affairs — working with intelligent people always makes things highly efficient. In any case... However objectionable she might find me, she would be forced to admit that without me, she would have no one to help execute her weird and wonderful ideas.
Genshin Impact - Gorou ImageGorou Oh, her... I'd be prefer not to talk about her. Can we change the topic? Or, if there are any tasks I can take off your hand, I'll gladly oblige! Anything at all? ...Ahem, let's just say it'd be best for my general well-being if we can avoid talking about her...
Come to think of it, Lady Guuji's publishing house also publishes murder mysteries, right? So... when can you introduce me? In this day and age, becoming a famous detective requires more than just ability - you need publicity, too. Huh? C'mon, I'm being serious here!
Genshin Impact - Itto ImageItto About the Lady with Fox Ears
I crushed that Kitsune Ramen eating contest we had. Even all that Fried Tofu couldn't stand in my way — she didn't come close to beating me! ... I was, uh, bedridden for more than a month after that, but you know what? I'd rather lie in bed a winner than walk away a loser! So... Anyway, I had the last laugh, 'cause she had to foot the bill for 32 bowls of noodles! Haha!
Genshin Impact - Kirara ImageKirara Lady Miko is a widely renowned kitsune youkai in Inazuma, so it's natural for young youkai like myself to approach her with reverence. But contrary to my expectations, she was surprisingly amiable. She even came to visit me in person and taught me lots of useful stuff about how to survive in human society! Things like proper human etiquette, ways to approach people, and different fried tofu recipes... Huh? That last one was just for her?
Genshin Impact - Kokomi ImageKokomi I have also heard of Guuji Yae's great deeds. In all fairness, I hold her to be an outstanding shrine maiden, and she has performed her duties marvelously. I even heard that she holds responsibility where Yae Publishing House's light novels are concerned. An enigmatic individual to say the least...
Genshin Impact - Sara ImageSara Guuji Yae's actions often leave me with many questions... Nevertheless, the fact that she is the head shrine maiden of the Grand Narukami Shrine clearly shows the level of trust and approval that the Shogun places in her, and for this reason I also greatly respect her. But... if there ever comes a day when she disobeys the Shogun's will, then please accept my apologies in advance.
Genshin Impact - Sayu ImageSayu She's always patting me on the head... I've never bitten her, though, or even said anything, because I'm frightened of how she'd react if I stood up to her. But what am I gonna do? Because if she keeps on patting my head, I'm gonna get stuck at this height forever!
Genshin Impact - Shinobu ImageShinobu You can't imagine how boring it is to be a shrine maiden. Even Lady Guuji from the Grand Narukami Shrine has her publishing gig to break up the monotony. I will never go back to being a shrine maiden. Never.
Genshin Impact - Thoma ImageThoma Lady Miko? Wh—What about her? 'sigh' Every time Miss Kamisato sends me out to deliver messages, my least-favorite destination is Grand Narukami Shrine... Oh! N—Not because Lady Miko scares the bejeebers out of me, it's, uh... respect. Yes! She strikes respect deep into my heary, ahahahaha...
Genshin Impact - Wanderer ImageWanderer A smooth-talking youkai. Though she pretends to care about humans to gain the favor of her god, all she seeks are entertaining ways to pass her time.
Genshin Impact - Yoimiya ImageYoimiya Ayaka once asked me during a ritual at the shrine if I could prepare some fireworks for the Lady Guuji's leisure. I thought to myself, "isn't the Lady Guuji supposed to sit inside the shrine throughout the ritual?" So I watched her the whole time during the ritual, wondering how she'd like to release the fireworks. I waited, and I waited, and then Ayaka came over at length to tell me that the Lady Guuji was most pleased. I mean, what? She'd already released the fireworks? Was the person sitting inside the shrine not her, then?
