No matter which character you pick in Genshin Impact, you must build them with the best weapon, artifacts, and team composition to get the most out of them. Yaoyao is the latest 4-star playable character that will get added to Genshin Impact 3.4 update and will accompany Alhaitham in his banner.
She is a Dendro character, and we received her first official look in the Genshin Impact teaser shown at The Game Awards 2022. She will be available for free to all the players in the Lantern Rite event in 2023. If you pull Yaoyao from her banner or get her from the event, you can look at her best build and team composition below.
Best Yaoyao Build in Genshin Impact
HoYoverse has officially revealed all the details about her, and based on her abilities, she is best suited for either the healer role in the party. You can also build her to trigger Dendro reactions. Here are the best weapon and artifacts you can use to build her.
Staff of Homa and Moonpiercer would be the best weapons for Yaoyao for the healer role and Dendro reaction character, respectively.
Staff of Homa
HP increased by 20/25/30/35/40%. Additionally, provides an ATK Bonus based on 0.8/1/1.2/1.4/1.6% of the wielder's Max HP. When the wielder's HP is less than 50%, this ATK bonus is increased by an additional 1/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8% of Max HP.
After triggering Burning, Quicken, Aggravate, Spread, Bloom, Hyperbloom, or Burgeon, a Leaf of Revival will be created around the character for a maximum of 10s. When picked up, the Leaf will grant the character 16/20/24/28/32% ATK for 12s. Only 1 Leaf can be generated this way every 20s. This effect can still be triggered if the character is not on the field.
Best Artifact Set
Tenacity Of The Millelith (4-piece) is the best artifact set for Yaoyao as a healer; however, you should go with Deepwood Memories (4-piece) if you want the most out of the Dendro reactions.
- 2-Piece Bonus: Dendro DMG Bonus +15%.
- 4-Piece Bonus: After Elemental Skills or Bursts hit opponents, the targets' Dendro RES will be decreased by 30% for 8s. This effect can be triggered even if the equipping character is not on the field.
Tenacity Of The Millelith
- 2-Piece Bonus: HP +20%.
- 4-Piece Bonus: When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.
Best Yaoyao Team Composition in Genshin Impact
In order to get the most out of Yaoyao, we recommend you include Electro, Hydro, and Pyro characters in the team, to trigger Catalyze, Bloom, and Burning reactions that will increase the damage and its duration. In addition to this, these elements are enough to trigger Dendro reactions like Spread, Hyperbloom, etc., to deal bonus damage.
As an Electro character, you can pick Fischl, who will also help in energy restoration, and to fill up the space of a Pyro character, Xiangling will be a good choice. At last, you can choose Ayato as your Hydro character in the team, who will also be the main DPS.
Thus, the best team composition for Yaoyao in Genshin Impact will be Fischl, Xiangling, and Ayato.
