Yae Miko is a 5-Star, Electro character, wielding a Catalyst as her weapon. She can deal strong Electro damage and help with triggering reactions. Yae Miko can be your party’s Main or Sub DPS character thanks to her skills and damage.

This Genshin Impact Yae Miko Build Guide is focusing on the role of DPS!


Her Elemental Skill, Yakan Evocation: Sesshou Sakura, leaves a Sesshou Sakura behind that periodically strikes a nearby opponent with Electro Damage. You can have up to 3 Sesshou Sakura active. The more you have active the higher their level and their damage.

Her Elemental Burst, Great Secret Art: Tenko Kenshin, summons a lightning strike that deals Electro damage. It also unseals nearby Sesshou Sakura, transforming them into Tenko Thunderbolts that deal Electro AOE damage.

Weapon & Artifacts

Yae Miko is a Catalyst user, which allows her to attack enemies from afar. Since her skills deal strong Electro damage, we should focus on Artifact Sets that boost it.


Kagura’s Verity is a great catalyst for Yae Miko. A 5-Star weapon you can get from wishes that grants the Kagura Dance effect when using an Elemental Skill, causing the Elemental Skill DMG of the character wielding this weapon to increase by 12% for 16s. Max 3 stacks. This character will gain 12% All Elemental DMG Bonus when they possess 3 stacks.

The Skyward Atlas, The Widsith and Solar Pearl are good alternatives.

The Skyward Atlas is a 5-Star Catalyst that you can get from wishes. Its skill is called Wandering Clouds and its effect increases Elemental DMG Bonus by 12%. Normal attack hits have a 50% chance to earn the favor of the clouds, which actively seeks out nearby enemies to attack for 15s. Dealing 160% ATK DMG. Can only occur once every 30s.

The Widsith is a 4-Star weapon you can get from wishes. When the character takes the field, they will gain a random theme song for 10s. This can only occur once every 30s.
