Everything we know about Yun Jin in Genshin Impact


Looking for more info on Yun Jin in Genshin Impact? She's one of the newly announced characters heading to Teyvat, alongside fellow polearm-wielder, Shenhe. But unlike the upcoming Cryo character, four-star Yun Jin uses the Geo element to shield herself and damage her enemies.

Yun Jin isn't playable in Genshin Impact yet, though, and we're still waiting for both Arataki Itto and Gorou's banners in the second half of the Version 2.3 update. But if you're keen to know more about this Geo polearm-wielder, here's what we know about Genshin Impact Yun Jin and her abilities. 

Release date

Genshin Impact Yun Jin: When is her release date?  

Yun Jin's release date hasn't been officially confirmed by miHoYo, but we're expecting her to arrive at some point during version 2.4.

As the 2.3 update has only just arrived, you'll need to wait a little while before you can wish for Yun Jin. It's unclear whether this four-star Geo character will share a banner with Shenhe, but I'll keep this guide updated as soon as we hear more.

  • Glaze Lily
  • Damaged/Stained/Ominous Mask

Glaze Lilies are plants found in the Liyue region. They're most commonly found in Yujing Terrace at Liyue Harbor and in and around Qingce Village. The Mask items are drops from hilichurl and samachurl enemies, which can be found in all regions.

  • Teachings/Guide/Philosophy to Diligence
  • Damaged/Stained/Ominous Mask
  • Ashen Heart
  • Crown of Insight

You can loot the Diligence items from the Taishan Mansion domain on Tuesdays and Fridays, and, as mentioned above, the Mask items are dropped from both Hilichurls and Samachurls. The Ashen Heart is rewarded after defeating the weekly boss La Signora at level 70 or above. Finally, the Crown of Insight is a reward for upgrading the Frostbearing Tree in Dragonspine or the Sacred Sakura in Inazuma. You can also get it from various seasonal activities, like Midsummer Island Adventure or Thunder Sojourn.
