Genshin Impact players will have another chance to get the 5-star Pyro bow-user character from Inazuma, Yoimiya. Her banner, titled “Tapestry of Golden Flames,” will run from August 2 to August 23, 2022.
This is the second time Yoimiya’s banner has been featured in the game. The first one was way back in August of 2021 when her character was first introduced. Aside from Yoimiya, players can get three other characters, including Sayu, Diona, and XinYan.
If you’re considering whether you should pull for Yoimiya this time, here’s a rundown of her skills:
Firework Flare-Up – Normal Attack
- Normal Attack: Yoimiya performs up to 5 consecutive shots with a bow.
- Charged Attack: She performs a more precise Aimed Shot with increased Damage. Flames also accumulate on the arrowhead before being fired off. These arrows will deal Pyro Damage and a maximum of 3 Kindling Arrows.
- Plunging Attack: She performs a shower of arrows in mid-air which deals AoE damage to enemies upon impact.
Niwabi Fire-Dance – Elemental Skill
Yoimiya fires Blazing arrows with increased Damage and Pyro Damage. Her normal attacks will not generate Kindling Arrows at Charge Level 2.
Ryuukin Saxifrage – Elemental Burst
Yoimiya blasts her Ryuukin Saxifrage and fires forth blazing rockets, which deal Aoe Pyro Damage and mark one of the hit opponents with Aurous Blaze.
An opponent marked by Aurous Blaze will trigger an explosion, which deals AoE Pyro Damage.
Tricks of the Trouble-Maker – 1st Ascension Passive
When Yoimiya unleashes her Elemental Skill, shots from her Normal Attack will increase her Pyro Damage Bonus by 2% on hit. This effect can last for 3 seconds.
Summer Night’s Dawn – 4th Ascension Passive
This skill causes Yoimiya’s nearby party members to gain a 10% Attack increase for 15 seconds. Each stack will increase this Attack Bonus by 1%.
Blazing Match – Utility Passive
When Yoimiya crafts Decoration, Ornament, and Landscape Furnishing, she has a 100% chance to refund a portion of the materials used.
If you need a Pyro DPS character in your team, you definitely need to pull for Yoimiya. Genshin Impact is a free-to-play RPG game from HoyoVerse for gaming PC, consoles, and mobile devices.
