Yoimiya is Genshin Impact’s latest Pyro bow user, and finding out the best build, abilities, and artifacts is crucial to use her skills well. From Yoimiya’s Elemental Skill, Elemental Burst, and Normal Attacks, here’s everything you need to know. 

Yoimiya is a 5-Star Pyro character that uses her bow to bring fiery justice to her enemies, engulfing them in a flurry of scorching hot flames. As the owner of Inazuma’s Naganohara Fireworks shop, Yoimiya is no stranger to the beauty and danger that comes with explosives. 

While Genshin Impact’s Inazuma trailer gave fans a good look at how the Frolicking Flames will play in the game, we now have details on her Elemental Skill, Elemental Burst, and Normal Attacks.


Whether you’re looking to finally replace Amber or just wanting to know whether you should spend your Primogems and Mora on Yoimiya, then you’ll want to check out the footage and breakdown of all her abilities below. 


Yoimiya abilities in Genshin Impact

Yoimiya abilities
Yoimiya is capable of dishing out huge amounts of Pyro damage.

Normal Attack: Firework Flare-Up

  • Normal Attack: Yoimiya unleashes five non-elemental arrows directly in front of her. The speed of the arrows gradually increases before she leaps into the air to perform a final empowered attack.
  • Charged Attack: Upon the first charge, Yoimiya fires a flaming arrow that deals Pyro DMG to her enemy. The second charge generates three Kindling Arrows, which home in on nearby opponents, dealing Pyro DMG on hit.
  • Plunging Attack: While airborne, Yoimiya fires a volley of arrows into the air before striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG to all nearby opponents.

Yoimiya Elemental Skill: Niwabi Fire-Dance

Yoimiya waves a sparkler in the air, summoning three fiery wisps that circle around her. This imbues her Normal Attacks with added Pyro damage and enables her to melt through her enemies. The added Pyro effect of Normal Attacks only lasts for the duration of her Elemental Skill. 

Yoimiya Elemental Burst: Ryuukin Saxifrage

Yoimiya Elemental Burst
Yoimiya’s Elemental Burst sees the Bow user douse her opponents in flames.

Yoimiya effortlessly leaps into the air before unleashing a devastating Pyro arrow and a number of fireworks. Both the arrow and fireworks explode in a large area, inflicting all enemies hit with Pyro damage. 


One enemy will also be marked with Aurous Blaze, which enables Yoimiya’s allies to trigger an explosion when hitting an opponent marked by the ability.

This explosive-loving girl is the owner of Naganohara Fireworks. When she isn’t busy burning her enemies with fiery arrows from her bow, she can be found planning out Inazuma’s firework display. In fact, Yoimiya’s love for fireworks can be seen throughout the official footage above. 

Her idle animation features the pyromaniac playfully swinging a sparkler around, while the sounds of her Normal Attacks make a high-pitched firework-like whistle.
