Yae Miko Buffs

Beta testers and leakers have noticed changes to Yae Miko’s kit, with the character currently being available to test in the 2.5 Beta version of the game which went live recently.

Noted Genshin Impact leaker UBatcha confirmed on Twitter what the changes are for the character, and whilst miHoYo can still make changes, we expect that these will be similar if not identical to the actual kit when the 2.5 Update is released proper.

They tweeted: “Yae changes

“Elemental Skill CD: 9s to 4s
Elemental Skill cast time reduced

“A1: When using Q, Every Sesshou Sakura destroyed will reset the cooldown of 1 Sesshou Sakura charge (completely changed).”

Many players appear to be happy with the changes, believing that it is the right move for the soon to be released character.

Yae Miko’s Elemental Skill will be much more useful once the reduction in cooldowns is added, and it will also help make the character’s playstyle more fluid.


Constellation Changes

UBatcha also confirmed that Yae Miko’s constellations have been changed ahead of the official release of the 2.5 Update, and the updates are as follows:

  • C1: When Yae Miko’s Elemental Burst triggers a Sky Kitsune Thunderbolt, she recovers seven energy for herself.
  • C2: The Elemental Skill’s cooldown is reduced by 20% and its attack AoE is increased by 100%.
  • C 6: When a Sesshou Sakura is created, its initial level becomes two, and the maximum level increases to four. Sesshou Sakura’s attacks ignore 45% of enemy DEF as well.

Here is what the constellations looked like originally:

  • C1: When Yae Miko’s Elemental Burst triggers a Lethal Sakura Thunderbolt, she recovers 7 energy for herself.
  • C2: Lethal Sakura’s cooldown is reduced by 20% and its attack AoE is increased by 100%.
  • C3: Increases the level of Yae Miko’s Elemental Skill by 3. Maximum upgrade is 15
  • C4: When the Lethal Sakura thunderbolt triggered by the Elemental Skill hits an enemy, all teammates receive a 20% Electro DMG bonus for 5 seconds.
  • C5: Increases the level of Yae Miko’s Elemental burst by 3. Maximum upgrade is 15.
  • C6: When a Lethal Sakura is created, its initial level becomes two, and the maximum level is increased to four. Lethal Sakura’s attacks ignore 45% of enemy DEF as well.
