Best role in a team comp

Yae Miko’s DEF stat is arguably one of the lowest among the playable characters. But her damage output makes up for it, especially when you deploy three of her Sesshou Sakura. Other guides call this skill ‘Turrets’.

It’s advisable that travelers start any battle by immediately deploying the three Turrets. If the Turrets are within range of each other, they link together and level themselves up, producing more damage and heavily aiding against mobs.

After you deploy all three Turrets, you can switch characters while her Turrets continue doing damage. This makes Yae Miko a perfect off-field sub-DPS for your team comps. Don’t forget to use her Elemental Burst that will unleash powerful lightning strikes on each Sesshou Sakura deployed on the field.

Talent Priority

As of now, Yae Miko’s best role in any team comp is a sub-DPS. Because of this, her Talents should be prioritized as follows:

  1. Elemental Skill – Yakan Evocation: Sesshou Sakura
  2. Elemental Burst – Great Secret Art: Tenko Kenshin
  3. Normal Attack – Spiritfox Sin-Eater

Best weapon and alternatives

Yae Miko’s signature weapon, Kagura’s Verity is obviously the best weapon for her. When using an Elemental Skill, the Elemental Skill DMG of the wielder increases depending on its refinement level. This effect lasts for 12s and can be stacked 3 times. The wielder will also gain All Elemental DMG Bonus when they possess 3 stacks.

Refinement Level Elemental Skill DMG
1 12%
2 15%
3 18%
4 21%
5 24%
