How to Use Yoimiya

Use Elemental Skill to Deal Pyro DMG

Genshin - How to Use Yoimiya Elemental Skill
Yoimiya's Elemental Skill, Niwabi-Fire Dance, imbues her Normal Attacks with Pyro for a short period of time. Use this Talent as often as you can to get the most out of Yoimiya's Normal Attack DMG!

Elemental Burst Deals AoE DMG & Buffs the Party

Genshin - How to Use Yoimiya Elemental Burst
Yoimiya's Elemental Burst deals AoE Pyro DMG to surrounding enemies and marks one of the enemies hit with Aurous Blaze. It also buffs other party members' ATK% if her Passive Talent, Summer-Night's Dawn, is unlocked.

What is Aurous Blaze?

Genshin - How to Use Yoimiya Aurous Blaze
Excluding Yoimiya, all party members' attacks on an enemy marked with Aurous Blaze will deal AoE Pyro DMG. Once a marked enemy is defeated, the Aurous Blaze mark is then passed onto another nearby enemy.

Hunt Animals Easily with Charged Attacks

Genshin - Yoimiya Charged Attack Level 2

Yoimiya's Charged Attack Level 2 can home in on moving targets. This makes hunting down wild animals like birds and boars easier as even if they run away, they can still get hit by the arrows.

Refunds Furnishing Materials

Genshin - How to Use Yoimiya Passive Talent

Niwabi Fire-Dance

Talent Description
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.
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.

Skill Attributes

Attribute Effect (Lvl 1)
Blazing Arrow DMG 137.9% Normal Attack DMG
Duration 10.0s
CD 18.0s

Ryuukin Saxifrage

Talent Description
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 deal AoE Pyro DMG. When an opponent affected by Aurous Blaze is defeated before its duration expires, the effect will pass on to a nearby opponent, who will inherit the remaining duration.

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

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 when using Ryuukin Saxifrage. Each stack increases this ATK Bonus by 1%.

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 - 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!
