Yae Miko Weapons

Yae Miko’s all about off-field Electro damage. There are many great Catalyst options for her at all investment levels.

Most five-star Catalysts will be great on Yae Miko, but her best is Kagura’s Verity. This weapon is optimized for her kit and attack rotations, with buffs that get stronger the more you use her Elemental Skill.

For premium choices, the Battle Pass’s Solar Pearl and the Item Shop’s Royal Grimoire help with landing Crits, useful for her sustained Sesshou Sakura attacks and her massive Elemental Burst.

The Widsith works well with the quick-swap style Yae Miko uses, giving her either an Attack, Elemental Damage or Elemental Mastery buff when she takes the field. All three buffs are great on her, as she uses Elemental Mastery as part of her Sesshou Sakura damage by one of her Ascension Passive Talents.

Favonius Codex helps get Yae Miko’s Burst back faster, while also providing Particles for the rest of the team.

Inazuma’s craftable Catalyst, Hakushin Ring, is also usable on her. It gives an Elemental Damage bonus to your team when you trigger Electro Reactions. Yae Miko happens to be one of only two Electro Catalyst characters in the game, making it easy to get this effect reliably.

In lore, the Hakushin Ring carries the memories of Yae Miko’s ancestor, the Hakushin Kitsune.

The new free event Catalyst, Oathsworn Eye, gives a simple Energy Recharge boost after using an Elemental Skill. It helps Yae Miko get her Elemental Burst back more reliably, and has further synergy with some Artifacts.

Yae Miko Artifacts

For main stats, you’re looking for Attack% on the Sands, Electro Damage% on the Goblet and Crit Damage/Rate on the Circlet. If you’re not running any Emblem of Severed Fate pieces, Energy Recharge on the Sands can be viable.

4 Emblem of Severed Fate 

The complete set of Emblem of Severed fate gives an Elemental Burst Damage% buff equal to 25% of the wearer’s Energy Recharge. This is at least another 30% more Burst damage (you get 130% from just the Artifact bonus), and you still get all the benefits of having high Energy Recharge.

This set works especially well with Oathsworn Eye.

Yae Miko can also use various combinations of two-piece sets. This mix-and-match style allows you to be flexible, as you can choose the ones with better sub-stats.

Rather than list every combination, I’ll give a brief explanation of what each two-piece does and what it benefits.

2  Gladiator’s Finale or Shimenawa’s Reminiscence

These two sets have the same two-piece ability. They both give an 18% Attack boost. Pair these with a damage buffing set like Thundering Fury or Noblesse Oblige.

2 Thundering Fury

This gives a 15% Electro damage bonus. All of Yae Miko’s attacks deal Electro damage, so you’ll be getting tons of value from this bonus.

2 Emblem of Severed Fate

If you don’t have a battery character like Fischl or Raiden to help fuel Yae Miko’s Elemental Burst, the 20% Energy Recharge from a two-piece Emblem set can be invaluable.

2 Wanderer’s Troupe

Yae Miko’s second Ascension Passive increases her Sesshou Sakura damage by .15% for each point of Elemental Master. The two-piece bonus of Wanderer’s Troupe gives 80 Elemental Mastery, translating into a respectable 12% Damage buff.

2 Noblesse Oblige

This is the bonus to hit those big Elemental Burst numbers. Yae Miko’s Burst has high scaling and hits several times, making great use of the 20% Burst damage buff that two pieces of Noblesse give.

light. More. Kagura's Verity Banner Review

Combining Noblesse with Emblem basically makes a slightly worse approximation of the four-piece Emblem set, so go for that full set instead if you need the Recharge.
