Yun Jin abilities in Genshin Impact

Yun Jin transfers her operatic flourish to the battlefield in a series of Geo attacks. Perfect for compositions in need of a normal attacker, her abilities bolster her allies through song and dance.

Yun Jin charges up a sweeping polearm attack which is unleashed on her enemies. As she charges the skill, she’s granted a shield to ensure that she isn’t just a sitting duck.

Depending on how long you charge the skill for, it’ll do Charge 1 or Charge 2 damage. Adding the “True to Yourself” skill into the mix means that, if Yun Jin is attacked while charging, she automatically hits a Charge 2 attack.

Yun Jin Elemental Burst: Cliffbreaker’s Banner

Cliffbreaker’s Banner deals Geo AoE damage and provides surrounding allies with the “Flying Cloud Flag Formation” buff. This means that, when allies do normal damage to enemies, their output is increased based on Yun Jin’s current defense.

Yun Jin is said to work at the Heyu Tea House in Liyue.

Yun Jin is an NPC in Genshin Impact currently, currently hanging out at Heyu Tea House. She is known for her amazing opera performances, which are much loved in Liyue.

Many of the Liyue characters praise her voice and elegant stage presence. She’s described as the most popular performer in the region – but still humble behind the scenes.

She’s seemingly very popular, and will likely only grow in notoriety as players start exploring Teyvat with her.
