Genshin Impact’s new 5-star DPS character is almost here and her name is Yae Miko. In the spirit of support, I’ve decided to help you on your quest to farm Yae Miko’s material – as is common practice for new characters in Genshin. Always good for getting a head start, right?

The basics

Here is what Shenhe will need for his level up:

There are several ways to farm Vajrada Amethyst Coins of different levels. If you’re looking to farm everything as quickly and efficiently as possible, be prepared to use up a lot of your precious Fragile Resin. Seven bosses drop Amethyst Coins, with four being regular world bosses and three being weekly bosses.

*Spoilers ahead* (?) If you fight stormterror, Child Where Azhdaha this week you have a chance to get amethyst coins. For real consistent farming, you seek to challenge the Coral Defenders, Electro hypostasis, manifestation of thunder, and that asshole Primo Geovishap. Each clear boss costs 40 resins when redeeming, and you’ll need to leave the area for three minutes for it to respawn.

Also, if you haven’t already, the souvenir shops in Monstadt and Liyue have six shards of each gem you can trade. It’s a unique thing though, so use them wisely.

Ah, make decisions

There are two things you can do to increase the efficiency of your farming. For starters, you can browse through the patterns – except for the weeklies, as they are weekly. Start at one of the World Bosses, beat it, then move on to the next one so the previous one will respawn in the meantime. If you want, you can create a route between them, doing them over and over again in order.

You can farm it quite naturally or you can use an alchemy table to upgrade the Jade to its next level. It takes three of the previous tier materials to advance to the next – this also goes for any other tiered materials. For the more alchemy inclined, you can use Dust of Azoth to convert any level of a different gem to an amethyst of the same level.

Farm Genshin Impact Yae Miko
Hello again, my old friend.

Dragon Heir False Fins can be obtained by repeatedly bullying the crap out of level 30+ Coral Defenders. This coincides with your Vajrada Amethyst farm, so it opens up a new choice for you. You can either hyper-close Amethyst or repeatedly farm the Coral Defenders for False Fins and Amethyst. The difference in just fighting the Coral Defenders is that you’ll have to wait three minutes for them to respawn each time. Also note that you will have to leave the area entirely for three minutes. Walking away and waiting makes you look like a fool, believe me.

You can also earn two fins for completing the archon quest Where the Heart Finds Rest.

Now comes the (slightly) easy part

It usually gets a little easier from now on. Your next targets will be the groups of Lesser Nobushi and Elemental Kairagi found around Inazuma. The Nobushi – or Ronin – are fairly easy to fight most of the time. The problem usually occurs when Kairagi enters the field. There are two to manage – Dancing Thunder and Fiery Might, with corresponding items to boot. The hard part is that when you defeat one, the other powers up and fully heals if you’re not fast enough.

If you’re having trouble finding these big swordsmen, there’s an official Teyvat interactive map you can use to find and track them. These guys usually travel in groups, so why not join up with some friends and level the playing field a bit?

And last but not least, the Sea Ganoderma. These little… blue (?) mushrooms are found on the beaches around Inazuma, with large concentrations around Kannazuka and Seirei Island. Talking to Mirai in Bourou Village will give you four, and you can buy five from Obata in Ritou every three days. The best way to find them would be to use the interactive map again, but who am I to tell you to use the map. I don’t want to get in the way of your adventurous spirit.

Talent Improvements

The farm needed to max out any character in Genshin Impact has never been easy Where affordable, and Yae Miko won’t be the first exception.

  • 9 Teachings of Light
    • 63 Guides of Light
    • 114 Philosophies of Light
  • 18 Old Handguards
    • 66 Kageuchi Handguards
    • 93 Famous Handguards
  • 18 Undisclosed Weekly Boss Documents
  • 3 Crowns of Insight (one to max each talent’s level – but maxing its attack isn’t necessary)
  • 4,957,500 Mora – I never said it would be cheap

So I know that’s usually where I list the gear you need from the Weekly Boss, but we don’t know that yet. There is talk of a new boss coming out in patch 2.5 though, so as soon as we find out, you will.

Genshin Handguard Farm
One less, the rest of Inazuma to go.

Next, let’s talk about the handguards. Sorry to break it to you, champ, but you’re going to need a lot more handguards than you previously thought. Your total for handguards is 36 ancient handguards, 96 Kageuchi handguards and 129 famous handguards, which can significantly extend the time spent on the farm. Light Talent Books can be farmed in the Violet Court Estate on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and can be upgraded in the same way as the previously listed materials.

The last item on your list is unfortunately the hardest to get. Crowns of Insight are the rarest material due to the fact that they are limited to two methods of obtaining. The main method is to earn them through events. The only other ways to get them are the Frosted Tree in Dragonspine and the Sacred Sakura in Inazuma. So have fun with that one, I guess.

Last but not least, your construction

Since we haven’t had her yet, we’re just building a theory based on her abilities.

  • Gladiator’s Endgame – 2 / Shimenawa’s Reminiscence – 2
  • Any ATK Artifact – 2 / Thundering Fury – 2
  • Shimenawa Reminiscence – 4

Mihoyo might also release a new set of Electro Artifacts with her, so we’ll let you know if anything changes on that end as well.

Yae Miko is a Catalyst user, making her a formidable ranged AoE damage dealer. That’s why your best bet will probably be a two-two split between Gladiator’s Finale and Shimenawa’s Reminiscence. The two-piece bonus for Shimenawa is a standard 18% bonus to ATK, which is coincidentally the same bonus as a two-piece Gladiator set. It’s the safe bet for Artifacts given its DPS status.

Given his use of Electro, you might be able to trade in two of the pieces for a few Thundering Fury artifacts. This would grant you a 15% Electro DMG bonus, which should come in handy.

Adventure for your artifacts

Shimenawa’s Reminiscence can be grown in the Momiji-Dyed Court Estate in Inazuma. All Artifacts can be farmed at any time, so don’t feel the need to rush! Yae Miko hasn’t even been released yet, so you can take your time and really savor the hate you get from getting shitty artifacts.

In terms of statistics, I really can’t tell you anything for sure. If I had to guess, I’d say ATK% – for obvious reasons. Gladiator’s Finale can be farmed from any of the world bosses while Shimenawa comes from the Momiji-Dyed Court Estate in Inazuma. If you’re looking for Thundering Fury, you’re heading to the Midsummer Courtyard Monstadt estate.

It’s pretty much done as far as the next Yae Miko farm loop in Genshin Impact is concerned. Will it be worth it for Ms. Miko? I would think so. Not only is it electro, but 80% of you are already simulating it anyway. It’s really just a win-win, you can upgrade it and you can play it at the same time. It’s the inevitable Genshin cycle – play Genshin, roll 5 stars, farm for 5 stars, repeat – Yae Miko is just the next in a long line of material grinds.
