All about Yoimiya and its gameplay
Extraordinary talented pyrotechnician and shop owner Naganohara fires, Yoimiya is known as the “Queen of the Summer Festival”. As warm as the fire of a warm hearth, his child's soul and his overflowing passion for fireworks make him a radiant personality. But she does not forget the most important, and places friendship at the center of her life and her development.
Beneath her somewhat overly passionate pyrotechnician air, Yoimiya remains a formidable fighter. Mastering the bow and the Pyro element to perfection, she also uses her tricks to reinforce her attacks. Thus, his “Niwabi” fire dance allows him to ignite his arrows and protect himself with a field of saltpetre. But it's his Saxifrage Ryuukin to be most wary of, firing numerous blazing rockets at close range.
Yoimiya, Banner and release date
Directly following the banner of Kamisato Ayaka on Genshin Impact, Yoimiya is available from August 10 in the Drapery of golden sparkles. His banner also unveils Sayu and features Xinyan and Diona.
