Genshin Impact: Yun Jin Best Weapons

Yun Jin
Build Guide Best Weapons
Team Compositions Constellation Guide

Yun Jin is one of the few Genshin Impact characters that play around the DEF stat. Like many other DEF units, Yun Jin is also blessed with Geo Vision. The Opera Performer is a support unit that can grant a flat DMG bonus to Normal Attack hits. This damage bonus is added before other multipliers like DMG Bonus and Crit DMG, so it can escalate greatly under the right circumstances.

Since there’s no equipment that grants base DEF, it’s no surprise that the buff provided by Yun Jin scales with her max DEF. Unfortunately, there’s no Polearm that has a DEF sub-stat, so Yun Jin best weapon in Genshin Impact has to settle with Energy Recharge equipment.

1/5 Favonius Lance

Base ATK 565
Sub-Stat 30.6% Energy Recharge
R5 Passive Crit Hits have a 100% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 6s.

Favonius Lance is the best Energy Recharge weapon for Yun Jin in Genshin Impact, ranking in the S tier. It demands some Crit Rate to work properly, but it’ll pretty much guarantee the availability of her Elemental Burst.

2/5 Engulfing Lightning

Base ATK 608
Sub-Stat 55.1% Energy Recharge
Passive ATK increased by 28% of Energy Recharge over the base 100%. You can gain a maximum bonus of 80% ATK. Gain 30% Energy Recharge for 12s after using an Elemental Burst.

Those who have a lineup for 5-star weapons can use Engulfing Lightning on Yun Jin. It’s not as useful as Favonius, but a 30% extra Energy Recharge from this Polearm will be decent, ranking this equipment in the S tier.

3/5 The Catch

Base ATK 510
Sub-Stat 45.9% Energy Recharge
R5 Passive Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 32% and Elemental Burst Crit Rate by 12%.

The Catch is a F2P weapon. Its passive is pretty much useless for Yun Jin, but its sub-stat is still decent, making it an A tier Polearm for Yun Jin.

4/5 Prototype Starglitter

Base ATK 510
Sub-Stat 45.9% Energy Recharge
Passive After using an Elemental Skill, increases Normal and Charged Attack DMG by 8% for 12s. Max 2 stacks.

Prototype Starglitter is also only useful for its Energy Recharge sub-stat, so it places in the A tier in Yun Jin weapon tier list.

5/5 Kitain Cross Spear

Base ATK 565
Sub-Stat 110 Elemental Mastery
R5 Passive Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 12%. After Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the character loses 3 Energy but regenerates 5 Energy every 2s for the next 6s. This effect can occur once every 10s. Can be triggered even when the character is not on the field.

Kitain Cross Spear may not have an Energy Recharge sub-stat, but its passive still helps regenerate Yun Jin’s Energy. This Polearm can even be used at level 1 since it won’t affect its passive. All things considered, this equipment ranks in the A tier for Yun Jin.

About the author


In love with RPGs like Souls and Elder Scrolls games. I also enjoy RTS like Age of Empires and the ancient Command and Conquer games. Despite all that, I still enjoy light games like Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail. In conclusion, I like to give every single game a fair chance as long as it looks like it was made with passion.
