Yae Miko is an off-field sub-DPS character who places up to three totems. Each totem can blast an enemy with Electro DMG. As a Catalyst wielder, Yae Miko has some decent options for you to choose from in order to maximize her damage output.

  • Best 5-star weapon: The Kagura’s Verity is Yae Miko’s signature. It boosts her ATK by up to 608 and her Crit DMG by up to 66.2%. These are great stats, but most importantly, the passive directly buffs her Elemental Skill DMG by 12%, as well as a general Elemental DMG bonus of 12%. These increases in stats complement Yae Miko’s playstyle, making this an excellent choice for her.
  • Best 4-star weapon: The Solar Pearl is a 4-star weapon available from the Battle Pass. While you’ll need to dish out some cash to equip this weapon, you’ll be rewarded with an ATK bonus of 510 and a boost to Yae Miko’s Crit Rate by 27.6%. The Solar Pearl increases her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst by 20% respectively after casting a Normal Attack, which is the majority of Yae Miko’s damage.
  • Best free-to-play weapon: The Widsith is Yae Miko’s best free-to-play-friendly option. This weapon is pullable from all banners, making this easy to obtain for most players. Additionally, it provides tons of helpful buffs, like Elemental Mastery and Crit DMG, and is a great backup choice if you don’t have the above weapons.

  • The 4-piece Thundering Fury is one of Yae Miko’s best sets, thanks to the buff in Electro DMG and the increase in damage from her Catalyst reactions. Alternatively, you can also opt to simply use a 2-piece Thundering Fury set and combine it with a +18% ATK set.
  • The 4-piece Emblem of Severed Fate is Yae Miko’s best set if you want to increase her Elemental Burst DMG. While Yae Miko’s main utility is through her Elemental Skill, her Elemental Burst is still worth investing in, which makes this a valuable artifact set for her.

Yae Miko’s best teams take advantage of Elemental Reactions. Yae Miko can act as your main damage dealer, but you will likely use Yae Miko as a sub-DPS for different teams.

  • Yae Miko / Nahida / Dendro Traveler / Kuki Shinobu: This team focuses on utilizing the Aggravate reaction to deal high damage. Nahida, Yae Miko, and the Dendro Traveler coexist to deal high damage while Kuki Shinobu provides some sustainability.
  • Yae Miko / Raiden Shogun / Bennett / Kazuha: This team can create Overload reactions and is one of the best teams for Raiden Shogun as a hypercarry character.
