Yae Miko is back on a rerun banner on Genshin Impact Version 3.7! Check out the best Yae Miko build on your newest Electro DPS.

Character Overview

Yae Miko is a 5-star Electro Catalyst user, who is able to deal massive burst damage after deploying three Electro turrets from her Skill onto the field. She has a low-cooldown Elemental Skill with three charges and is generally used to deal consistent Electro damage and application for a set duration. Her Elemental Burst consumes these turrets, which deals massive AoE damage to foes caught in the explosion. Her kit is focused on burst damage with short field times, which suggests that she works well in Burst-oriented teams. 

To see if she's worth your Primogems, check out our Should You Roll for Yae Miko? feature.

Elemental Skill – Yakan Evocation: Sesshou Sakura

Moves swiftly, leaving a Sesshou Sakura behind.

Sesshou Sakura
Has the following properties:

  • Periodically strikes one nearby opponent with lightning, dealing Electro DMG
  • When there are other Sesshou Sakura nearby, their level will increase, boosting the DMG dealt by these lightning strikes.

This skill has three charges.

A maximum of 3 Sesshou Sakura can exist simultaneously. The initial level of each Sesshou Sakura is 1, and the initial highest level each sakura can reach is 3. If a new Sesshou Sakura is created too close to an existing one, the existing one will be destroyed.

Elemental Burst – Great Secret Art: Tenko Kenshin

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.

Building Around the Grand Priestess of the Grand Narukami Shrine

Raiden Shogun / Yae Miko / Kaedehara Kazuha (or Sucrose) / Bennett

This team is focused on facilitating Raiden as the hypercarry, and will be the character who will get the most spotlight in this team. Yae Miko exists to provide off-field DPS but more importantly, activate the Electro resonance to solve Raiden's energy problems.

Aggravate – Yae Miko / 1 Electro / 2 Dendro

This is an incredibly flexible team composition, as many characters between the two elements fulfill all the base components of a party. You still do require a main, on-field DPS though. Raiden Shogun, Tighnari, Alhaitham can all fulfill this role. Defensive options are available via Kuki Shinobu, Baizhu, and Kirara.
