This guide is based on the Community Character Builds by the Genshin Helper Team.

Talent Priorities

Elemental Burst > Elemental Skill > Normal Attack

Yun Jin is a Support character for Normal Attack-focused characters who can deal off-field damage via her Elemental Burst. Yun Jin's Elemental Burst grants nearby party members 30 stacks of additional flat damage bonus on Normal Attacks which scales with Yun Jin's current DEF. This means that external DEF buffs like Gorou's Elemental Skill and/or Burst don't provide much to Yun Jin since it only buff active characters and not off-field ones.

Recommended Weapons

  1. Favonius Lance (4✩)*
  2. Engulfing Lightning (5✩)
  3. "The Catch" (4✩)
    ~= Prototype Starglitter (4✩)
    ~= Kitain Cross Spear (4✩)*

1) Favonius Lance (ATK: 565 • Energy Recharge: 30.6%)

CRIT Hits have a 60/70/80/90/100% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12/10.5/9/7.5/6s.
Note: With this weapon, try to aim for some Crit Rate stats to trigger the weapon passive reliably.

2) Engulfing Lightning (ATK: 608 • Energy Recharge: 55.1%)

ATK increased by 28/35/42/49/56% of Energy Recharge over the base 100%. You can gain a maximum bonus of 80/90/100/110/120% ATK. Gain 30/35/40/45/50% Energy Recharge for 12s after using an Elemental Burst.

3) "The Catch" (ATK: 510 • Energy Recharge: 45.9)

Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 16/20/24/28/32% and Elemental Burst CRIT Rate by 6/7.5/9/10.5/12%.

4) Prototype Starglitter (ATK: 510 • Energy Recharge: 45.9%)

After using an Elemental Skill, increases Normal and Charged Attack DMG by 8/10/12/14/16% for 12s. Max 2 stacks.

5) Kitain Cross Spear (ATK: 565 • Elemental Mastery: 110)

Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 6/7.5/9/10.5/12%. After Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the character loses 3 Energy but regenerates 3/3.5/4/4.5/5 Energy every 2s for the next 6s. This effect can occur once every 10s. Can be triggered even when the character is not on the field.
Note: Although the EM main stat isn't useful for Yun Jin, the passive decreases her Energy Recharge requirements by a lot, especially at higher refinements. It can reduce her ER% reqs depending on refinement. Note that she must cast Elemental Burst first before Skill, as the passive drains 3 energy initially when Skill is cast. This weapon can be left at level 1 while still getting full effect from the passive.
