The best Yun Jin build utilizes Artifacts and weapons that are tailored around boosting her Geo damage, which helps maximize the 4-star character’s combat effectiveness.

Yun Jin is one of the latest characters that has been released in Genshin Impact 2.4, which has also seen the arrival of Shenhe. While Shenhe also utilizes a polearm, Yun Jin combines her lightning-fast attacks with the added bonus of the Geo element.

Like most of the game’s Geo-based characters, the Liyue performer supports her allies with tanky shields and AoE damage. Whether you’re looking to spend your Primogems on Yun Jin or just wish to see what her abilities do, then our best Yun Jin build has you covered.

The best Yun Jin build makes use of the Husk of Opulent Dreams set, which increases her defense by 30%, while also giving her stacks of Curiosity. This passive can stack up to four times, with each stack providing a 6% defense and 6%  Geo damage bonus. 

As Yun Jin’s abilities are tailored around supporting her team and tanking incoming damage, having a set that directly boosts her defensive capabilities and Geo damage is a huge bonus.

If you want to build Yun Jin as your party’s main or sub damage dealer, then we recommend using Archaic Petra. This Artifact set will increase Yun Jin’s Geo damage bonus by 15% and also raise all party members’ damage bonus by 35%, whenever you obtain an Elemental Shard.

Best Yun Jin weapon in Genshin Impact

The best polearm for Yun Jin is the Staff of Homa. This 5-star weapon increases her HP by 20%, while also providing an attack bonus based on 0.8% of the wielder’s max HP. When the wielder’s HP is less than 50%, this bonus is increased by an additional 1% of max HP.

If you don’t have Staff of Homa, or are using this weapon on another polearm character, then the Primordial Jade Winged-Spear is a great option. This is particularly useful if you wish to increase Yun Jin’s on-hit attack damage. 

Lastly, the Deathmatch is our final pick. This item is readily available for free-to-play players from the item shop, which makes it a great choice for those that don’t wish to roll on any banners.

Best Yun Jin team comp

Zhongli official artwork in Genshin ImpactmiHoYo
Zhongli is a great pick for any Genshin Impact team comp.

The best Yun Jin team comp utilizes Zhongli, Bennett, and Xingqiu. Zhongli is an incredibly powerful 5-star character that fits into most team comps, but his damage and survivability will be greatly enhanced when used in this comp. 

Both Yun Jin and Zhongli’s shield strength will be increased by 15%, while allied protected by the shields will have their damage increased by 15%. Attacks on enemies will also decrease their opponent’s Geo RES by 20% for 15s.

If that buff wasn’t enough, both Bennett and Xingqui raise this bar even further. If the health of a character within Bennett’s ultimate is higher than 70%, they gain an attack bonus that is based on his base attack. This shouldn’t be a problem for either Yun Jin or Zhongli as their shields will keep any enemy damage to a minimum. 

Lastly, Xingqui’s Elemental Skill will provide even further DPS, provide Crystalize reactions, and even reduce incoming damage. With this team comp, you’ll be nigh unkillable and be able to dish out plenty of lethal hits.
