This Main DPS Yoimiya build focuses on making her Normal Attacks stronger. This comes at a cost of being somewhat unable to use her Elemental Burst reliably off cooldown. Though the Echoes set could fix the issue, it's currently too unreliable.

Mixing different 2pc. sets together for Yoimiya can be a good middle ground when you don't want to farm for complete sets, especially if you already have perfect substats for each piece.

Yoimiya's Talent Priority

Main DPS
1st Normal Attack
2nd Elemental Burst
3rd Elemental Skill

Normal Attacks are the primary source of Yoimiya's damage, so it should be maxed out first. Her Elemental Burst has more utility compared to her Elemental skill, but each should be leveled up somewhat equally.

Constellation and Effects

Yoimiya's Constellations
C1 Agate Ryuukin
The Aurous Blaze created by Ryuukin Saxifrage lasts for an extra 4s. Additionally, when an opponent affected by Aurous Blaze is defeated within its duration, Yoimiya's ATK is increased by 20% for 20s.
C2 A Procession of Bonfires
When Yoimiya's Pyro DMG scores a CRIT Hit, Yoimiya will gain a 25% Pyro DMG Bonus for 6s. This effect can be triggered even when Yoimiya is not the active character.
C3 Trickster's Flare
Increases the Level of Niwabo Fire-Dance by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
C4 Pyrotechnic Professional
When Yoimiya's own Aurous Blaze triggers an explosion, Niwabi Fire-Dance's CD is decreased by 1.2s.
C5 A Summer Festival's Eve
Increases the Level of Ryuukin Saxifrage by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
C6 Naganohara Meteor Swarm
During Niwabi Fire-Dance, Yoimiya's Normal Attacks have a 50% chance of firing an extra Kindling Arrow that deals 60% of its original DMG. This DMG is considered Normal Attack DMG.

Best Constellations Rating and Explanation

Rating Constellation Effect / Merits
C1 ★★☆ • Elemental Burst can now directly benefit Yoimiya.
• Not as useful against Boss type enemies.
C2 ★★★ • Amazing Constellation thanks to her high Pyro application.
• Her Elemental Burst reaction counts towards her own damage, which will buff its damage.

C2 Does the Most Damage

Unlocking Yoimiya's second constellation is a good stopping point for unlocking most of her potential. Her C6 may look tempting, but keep in mind that it is still rng dependent.

This effect will deactivate when Yoimiya leaves the field.
Flavor Text:
"Niwabi" is a form of incense firework created by Yoimiya herself. Its ability to be lit without any prior training or preparation has made it a real hit. After many fire-related incidents, the Tenryou Commission ordered the use of "Niwabi" banned, but small, bright sparks can often still be seen springing up at night. If seen from above, they look almost like little twinkling stars.

One Aurous Blaze can be triggered every 2s. When Yoimiya is down, Aurous Blaze effects will be deactivated.

Fireworks are man-made starlight, comets fired into the sky. Though they last for but an instant, the memory of their brilliance shall surely live on.

Yoimiya's In-Game Information

Character Thoughts on Yoimiya

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Ayaka ImageAyaka The Yashiro Commission and the shrine maidens are responsible for festival affairs, and Yoimiya, as a fireworks expert, knows how to create and atmosphere. So we have become well acquainted with her over the years. Hmm? Public order and fire prevention? We factor these concerns in well in advance during the planning stage. To deny people the chance to see fireworks simply for these reasons would leave them feeling very disappointed.
Genshin Impact - Ayato ImageAyato Ah, the fireworks store owner. Yes, a most... spirited young lady. The Kamisato Clan is on rather close terms with her. She is around the same age as Ayaka, and the two get along very well. I trust her direct and outspoken disposition won't lead Ayaka astray. Ayaka has always been staunchily true to herself, ever since she was a young child.
Genshin Impact - Itto ImageItto Hmph, she's always showing off her fancy fireworks and toys to the kids. Well, I'm sick of it! Nobody steals my thunder! I'm the one that's supposed to be adored by the kids! Me! That goes for you too, you're siding with me on this, okay... Huh? Whaddya mean, you're not a kid? Eh, details. If you're shorter than me, you're a kid as far I'm concerned.
Genshin Impact - Kazuha ImageKazuha The last time she commissioned Captain Beidou to ship fireworks to Liyue, I unloaded the shipment myself. They were so heavy! I doubt that anyone besides her could make such huge fireworks.
Genshin Impact - Sara ImageSara As long as she's not setting off fireworks in my camp, I will cause her no trouble. Heh, yes I know — all else aside, her fireworks are spectacular and brilliant, and she deserves all the praise she gets. The issue for me is that fireworks are fleeting in nature. After one brief moment of dazzling light, all that remains is the pitch-black night sky, the same as before. So I often have to caution myself not to become too captivated by this illusory spectacle. It is transient, but Inazuma is eternal, and my mission is to protect Inazuma.
Genshin Impact - Sayu ImageSayu Every time she sees me she says, "Hey, little tanuki! Let's go hang out at the festival." Firstly, I'm not a tanuki. Secondly, I don't wanna go to a festival. Thirdly, she says she wants to hang out — but really, she just wants me to do a ninjutsu performance during the fireworks show. That's not even related to my work for the Shuumatsuban!
Genshin Impact - Thoma ImageThoma Of Naganohara Fireworks fame? She's so easy to get along with. Super straightforward, just says whatever she thinks. Oh, and Naganohara fireworks are just incredible, you should take every chance you get to see them in action. Ah, on that note — here, have a coupon!
Genshin Impact - Yae Miko ImageYae Miko Naganohara fireworks are well worth the wait every year. Word is that she caused quite an uproar among the Tenryou Commission recently by setting off fireworks all over the place. Heh, I'm sure the members of the Kujou Clan must've turned purple with rage... A pity that I couldn't be there to see it for myself.
