Yun Jin was introduced to Shenhe in Genshin Impact version 2.4 as a four-star support character. To make the most of it, you have to use the right Yun Jin build.
From shields to attack buffs, his abilities are focused on supporting major damage dealers. However, players can build Yun Jin according to their needs. The shield reduces maximum HP, while the Attack buff from Elemental Burst reduces DEF.
Here are some of the best Yun Jin builds you can use, given the various roles he can play.
Build Yun Jin in Genshin Impact
Yun Jin is probably the best character to support Ayato, the newest 5-star Hydro attacker in Genshin Impact 2.6. Check out this article, we will discuss the best Yun Jin builds to use in battle.
Yun Jin is designed as a support Geo character who uses his Elemental Burst to buff the entire party's Normal Attack based on his current DEF stat. He can get into different types of teams that need a shield or to activate Geo resonance.
You should aim to have a lot of Energy Recharge (ER) on him to spam his burst as soon as the cooldown ends. Given that not many polearms provide DEF stats, ER weapons like the Favonius Lance are highly desirable.
Here's a good list of four-star and five-star weapons for Yun Jin:
- Favonius LanceThe Catch
- Deathmatch (for percent DEF)
- Skyward Spine
- Engulfing Lightning
- Starglitter Prototype (F2P)
Yun Jin's team role should not affect the player's weapon priority. They had to choose a weapon with ER sub-stats.
Yun Jin's skill has two modes: press and hold. Press mode releases attacks immediately while the second mode charges attacks and creates a shield based on its max HP. Once fully charged or the shield breaks, he will unleash an attack, dealing damage based on his current DEF stat.
This ability is quite difficult to master. Players can “Park” with it to instantly deal maximum damage without having to charge it for the full duration. Just set the time for the attack to release just before the enemy attack hits.
Deals AoE Geo DMG when thrown and grants all party members the Flying Cloud Flag Formation buff.
This buff grants bonus DMG for normal attacks based on Yun Jin's current DEF. It can be triggered a maximum of 30 times, and hitting multiple enemies consumes a lot of triggers.
Overall, he would need around 200 percent to 240 percent to use Elemental Burst from cooldown comfortably.
The first and most obvious choice is the four-part Husk of Opulent Dreams. It deals a lot of Geo defense and damage. Players struggling to get Energy Refills can also get a two-piece Emblem of Severed Fate and a two-piece Husk of Opulent Dreams.
Energy Recharge and percent DEF were the two main sub-stats that players should focus on when building Yun Jin. ER can range from 160-200 percent, depending on the team.
Therefore, their builds must include percent DEF/Energy Recharge Sands, Goblet percent DEF, and percent DEF/Crit Rate Circlet.
Yun Jin buffed the Normal ATK of other party members, therefore he had to be placed with the main DPS units that relied on their Normal Attack for damage. These characters include Yoimiya and Razor.
Ayato, Yun Jin, Xiangling and Zhongli were this team focused on improving Ayato's normal attack ability with Yun Jin's kit and Geo Zhongli's resonance. Xiangling is there to continuously apply Pyro to the Evaporation trigger.
Ayato, Yoimiya, Yun Jin and Zhongli as a whole, this was the perfect team for Ayato. Players can replace Zhongli with Bennett if needed.
Yun Jin is the team's main support buff, dealing Normal Attack DMG and ATK SPD (if C6). The final slot can be either Zhongli or Bennett, depending on your preference. The former is geared towards defense while the latter is more focused on offense.
Noelle, Yun Jin, Gorou and Albedo were also the best team for him. Players can definitely pair Yun Jin with a number of Geo DPS such as Itto, Noelle or Zhongli. While these pure Geo teams aren't top tier DPS or anything, they usually excel in attack and defense and are easy to build/play.
Ayato will act as Main DPS for the team, dealing high damage with his skills using Yun Jin's vaporize reactions and buffs. Yoimiya can switch to dealing damage while Ayato's kit is on cooldown.
Overall, the team focused on Yoimiya's attack, with support from Yun Jin and the Vaporization trigger from Xingqiu. The last member of the team, Bennett, deals Pyro's resonance, healing, and damage.
Not many characters in Genshin Impact can maximize Yun Jin's ATK buff at this time. However, it's safe to assume that such DPS units will be introduced in the near future, and Opera Singer will eventually prove its worth.
