Here is a guide on Genshin Impact Yae Miko. We have covered all the things that we know so far. The release date is February 16, 2022. 

Major upgrades to Genshin Impact’s 2.5 Special Program were revealed, including new events, Character and Story Quests, and the introduction of the two featured Character Banners. Yae Miko, the Grand Narukami Shrine’s head shrine maiden, has been announced as the first highlighted 5-star. Raiden Ei from Genshin Impact and Kokomi from Hydro will both appear in the second half of Version 2.5.

Yae Miko originally appeared as an NPC in the Genshin Impact Version 2.0 update, alongside the new area of Inazuma. The Traveler encounters Yae Miko in the Grand Narukami Shrine, where she is attempting to uncover the riddle of a rumoured demonic possession. She then confesses that she has high hopes for the visitor, ominously foreshadowing the future.

Yae Miko is very intelligent due to her Kitsune ancestry. She frequently employs her humour and intellect to attain her objectives and to defuse potentially harmful situations. This is seen towards the end of Version 2.1’s Archon Quest when she gives the Gnosis to Genshin Impact’s Sixth Harbinger, Scaramouche, in return for Paimon and the Traveler’s safety. Yae Miko, as the Electro Archon’s right hand, proves to be a formidable and astute ally.

Genshin Impact Yae Miko: Story quest

Yae Miko will have her own Character Quest in Genshin Impact 2.5, so players will be able to discover more about her. Characters are given a major role in these missions that they would not get in the regular Archon Quests. 

Players must first complete both parts of Raiden Ei’s Story Quest, “Imperatrix Umbrosa Chapter: Act I” and “Act II,” to unlock Yae Miko’s Story Quest, “Divina Vulpes Chapter: Act I.” Yae Miko’s Story Quest is planned to explain more about Inazuma’s history, showcasing its past and how it came to be as it is known to the Traveler now.

Genshin Impact Yae Miko: Skill and Abilities

Yae Miko is the first 5-star Electro-user to wield the Catalyst weapon in Genshin Impact. Spiritfox Sin-Eater, Yae Miko’s Normal Attack, delivers Electro DMG with every hit. Yae Miko, like other Catalyst users, will be able to apply her Element consistently with each assault. 

Yae Miko’s Elemental Skill, Yakan Evocation: Sesshou Sakura, lets her dart ahead quickly, leaving behind a Sesshou Sakura, a fox-shaped Electro construct. These Sesshou Sakura serve as warning lights for lightning strikes that will occur on a regular basis. At any given time, up to three Sesshou Sakura can exist.

Yae Miko’s Elemental Burst is extremely powerful, just like the other Elemental Bursts in Genshin Impact. In a tremendous Tenko Thunderbolt strike that descends from above, Tenko Kenshin lets Yae Miko unseal all adjacent Sesshou Sakura. 

With every Sesshou Sakura destroyed during her Elemental Burst, Yae Miko’s first passive Talent, “The Shrine’s Sacred Shade,” she can reset the cooldown for one charge of her Elemental Skill. The damage done by the Sesshou Sakura will be boosted dependent on the degree of her Elemental Mastery, thanks to Yae Miko’s second passive Talent, “Enlightened Blessing.”

When creating Character Talent Materials, Yae Miko’s last passive Talent, “Meditations of a Yako,” gives players the possibility to get one additional Talent Material of the same area of a random sort. The given Talent Material will have the same rarity as the material that was used to manufacture it. Players that require a large number of Talent Books for their characters will profit from this.

Genshin Impact Yae Miko: Weapon

She uses the mystical power of Electro to wreak havoc on the enemy. You may improve this by using her unique Kagura’s Verity weapon, which works in tandem with her three-stack Skill. Your DMG will rise by 12% for 12 seconds after performing an Elemental Skill. You get a bonus of 12 percent — up to 48 percent — after you reach three stacks. In Genshin Impact Version 2.5, this weapon will be shown on a weapon banner alongside Yae Miko’s character banner.

Yae Miko’s Role in Archon Quest of Inazuma

Raiden Ei abolishes the Vision Hunt Decree, which was imposed by Genshin Impact’s Fatui, and instructs the Shogun to release the captured Visions to the Vision-holders at the end of “Chapter II, Act III: Omnipresence Over Mortals.” 

The Shogun puppet, however, has probably opted to defy her creator in order to impose the notion of eternity that Raiden Ei had previously led her to accomplish, as suggested in the Genshin Impact Version 2.5 teaser. Raiden Ei appears to be entering the Shogun’s land in order to fight her. In Raiden Ei’s absence, she entrusts Inazuma to Yae Miko.

Rather than supporting Raiden Ei in the realm, Yae Miko sent the Traveler to assist the Electro Archon in his battle with the Shogun puppet. Yae Miko is thought to be guarding Inazuma from the outer world. Yae Miko may have a larger role in assisting Hydro-user Kokomi in protecting the underground region now that there is unrest in Enkanomiya, which has materialized in formidable new creatures and weird darkness. In addition to assisting Raiden Ei with the Shogun, the Traveler must be prepared to assist in the defense of Enkanomiya against Dainichi Mikoshi’s darkness.
