  • Yoimiya is a Pyro-based archer from Inazuma with a mix of on-field and off-field damage
  • She can empower her basic attacks to deal Pyro DMG similar to Hu Tao
  • Her Elemental Burst can only be triggered by other party members once activated 

Yoimiya is a character who has received plenty of attention in the past thanks to leakers and data miners. Fans have been speculating about her for weeks up until MiHoYo’s recent character reveal and the subsequent information dump courtesy of the game community’s reputable sources.

The official character reveal for Yoimiya showed that she will be joining “Genshin Impact’s” roster of Pyro characters as the second bow user in the category, right next to Amber. MiHoYo didn’t reveal much about her actual kit, so leakers took the task of looking for her skills upon themselves.

Reputable “Genshin Impact” leaker Dimbreath shared a pastebin link containing details of Yoimiya’s abilities, which suggest that she will be a Normal Attack-based DPS character.

Normal and Charged Attacks

Yoimiya’s basic attack combo consists of five rapid fire shots in the typical archer fashion. Her Charged Attacks, however, will have two charge levels similar to Ganyu. Firing a fully-charged shot will launch homing fire arrows that deal Pyro damage.

Yoimiya’s Elemental Skill

According to the leaks, Yoimiya will function like a ranged Hu Tao. Her Elemental Skill, Flame Blazing Dance, will increase the damage of Yoimiya’s Normal Attacks while infusing them with Pyro for a set duration.

Yoimiya will not be able to use the second level of her Charged Attacks while this skill is active, incentivizing her to spam her Normal Attacks as much as possible.

Elemental Burst

Yoimiya’s Elemental Burst, Ryukin Kumomagusa, lets her deal AoE Pyro damage around her while tagging one enemy with a Ryukin Flare. If Yoimiya’s party members (excluding herself) hits the enemy with the flare, explosions will occur, causing more Pyro damage. If the tagged enemy dies while the flare is still active, it will get transferred to another nearby enemy.

This skill is great for setting off chain reactions despite having absolutely no synergies with Yoimiya herself.


  • Akadama Ryukin – Increases Ryukin Flare duration by 4s. Increases Yoimiya’s ATK by 20% for 20s once an enemy dies to Ryukin Flare
  • Delivering Fire With A Million Lanterns – Increases Pyro DMG for 6s every time a Pyro attack crits. Bonus remains active when Yoimiya is off-field
  • The Flame Trick – Increases Elemental Skill level by 3
  • The Experience Of A Fireworks Professional – Yoimiya’s Elemental Skill cooldown is reduced every time a Ryukin Flare explosion is triggered
  • Summer Fest Nishiki-e – Elemental Burst level increased by 3
  • Potential Flow Of The Stars – During her Elemental Skill, Yoimiya has a chance to fire an extra arrow.
