Genshin Impact’s newest character is absolutely free: How to get Yun Jin

miHoYo /

Genshin Impact 2.4 brings a ton of new content to the game, and the return of some fan favorite events and characters. However, there’s one new character that steals the show: Yun Jin. The best part? She’s completely free for every player. Here’s how to get Yun Jin for free in Genshin Impact.

How to get Yun Jin for free in Genshin Impact

Yun Jin is a new four-star character. She’ll be featured on Xiao and Shenhe’s banner, but there’s a way to get her for free in 2.4’s Lantern Rite Festival.

After you progress far enough into the event, you’ll be able to unlock the Prosperous Partnership. Like last year’s Lantern Rite, this allows you to choose any four-star Liyue character to add to your collection. You can choose a character you already have to add to their Constellation, if you want.

Yun Jin will surprisingly be eligible for Prosperous Partnership, giving every player the opportunity to experience this ground breaking character. However, if you want to add to her Constellation you’ll need to go Wishing for her.

Yun Jin is a Chinese opera performer, a motif we don’t see much of in video games. Genshin Impact has already done a phenomenal job of portraying Chinese/Chinese-inspired characters beyond the obvious kung-fu martial artist motif, and Yun Jin takes this a leap forward.

She’s a Geo Polearm user with some interesting pieces of kit. Her Elemental Skill is a shield that stores energy, releasing Geo damage after it’s charged up. One of her Passive Talents turns this into a counter, allowing it to reach its full power if you release it right when she gets hit. She’s the second character to have a counter ability after Beidou.

Her Burst gives a Normal Attack damage bonus based on her own Defense for a certain number of hits. She can use this to buff her own attacks, or as a support for other characters. Already, Yun Jin looks like she can adopt a variety of play styles and builds to fit any team.
