Yun Jin is one of the next characters that will be released in Genshin Impact. Here’s what we know about the Liyue opera star, including rumored release dates, leaked abilities, and her banner.

Genshin Impact leaks continue to pour in following update 2.3. With a big string of releases behind us, including Baal and Kokomi, players’ sights are firmly set on the next big character reveals.

Yun Jin is set to be a big player at the tail end of the Inazuma expansion – just before players are exposed to Teyvat’s Sumeru region for the first time.

While not aligned with the Electro nation and hailing from Liyue instead, Yun Jin will have some ties into Genshin Impact’s story. Here’s what we know about Yun Jin so far, including leaked abilities and release date.



Yun Jin release date in Genshin Impact

MiHoYo has yet to confirm a release date for Yun Jin, but we have now finally got some artwork that wasn’t datamined – suggesting her release isn’t far away.

Yun Jin banner Genshin Impact

According to renowned leaker, @Tangzhu_Tz, Yun Jin’s banner will release with the arrival of Genshin Impact’s 2.4 update. WangshengFP also confirmed this leak, with many other Genshin Impact leakers backing up the recent findings.

“It’s confirmed that Yun Jin will be in 2.4,” said  WangshengFP. “I didn’t see her element or rarity. There’s no news about the other banner as well, could be a rerun. There’s still no news about Shenhe.” While the 4-stars have yet to be announced, we’ll likely hear which characters will join Yun Jin in the weeks to come.


Yun Jin abilities in Genshin Impact

Renowned Genshin Impact leaker, @lumie_lumie, has uploaded a video of Yun Jin’s in-game idle animations and abilities. It’s here where we get to see how the unreleased character will look upon her release.

Yun Jin can be seen striking the air with fast strikes from her polearm, before enshrouding herself and Shenhe in what appears to be a shield-based ability.

There was initially some rumors that Yun Jin would be the first Dendro character, which would have been a surprise, since Dendro Samachurls and Large Dendro Slimes are the only creatures capable of unleashing plant-based attacks. 

Yun Jin weapon in Genshin Impact

The Genshin Impact Twitter account has confirmed that Yun Jin’s weapon will be a Geo polearm user, ending speculation about her weapon and elemental affinity.


Yun Jin story in Genshin Impact

Yunjin story
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.

Recent voice line leaks have many of the Liyue characters praising 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.

Here’s MiHoYo’s blurb for the character, which admittedly doesn’t give a great deal away:


“She is the director of the Yun-Han Opera Troupe and is also a famous figure in Liyue Harbor’s opera scene.”
