The 5-pc Void Thunder set will always be the best Echo set for Yinlin for every role. The 2-pc provides a 10% Electro DMG bonus. The equipping character also gets another 30% Electro DMG boost from its full 5-pc set after using a Heavy ATK or Resonance Skill.


2) 5-pc Lingering Tunes

The Lingering Tunes set is a decent alternative for a main DPS Yinlin build. The complete 5-pc provides a ton of ATK bonus and a huge Outro Skill DMG bonus.


3) 2-pc Void Thunder + 2-pc Lingering Tunes

You can also use a combo of 2-pc Void Thunder and 2-pc Lingering Tunes. This way, you can gain a 10% bonus on both Electro DMG and ATK. This combo is also a good option for a sub-DPS build.


4) 5-pc Moonlit Clouds

The 5-pc Moonlit Clouds is another decent alternative for a more support role Yinlin. This will cost her a personal DPS loss, but she will gain more Energy Regen and provide more ATK buffs to the next Resonator that will enter the field.

Prioritize the following main stats on Yinlin’s Echo set:

  • COST4: Crit Rate/DMG
  • COST3: Electro DMG or ATK%
  • COST3: Electro DMG or ATK%
  • COST1: ATK%
  • COST1: ATK%

For the Echo sub-stats, focus on the following:

  1. Crit Rate or Crit DMG
  2. ATK%
  3. Skill DMG
  4. Liberation DMG
  5. Energy

Here are the best main Echo skill options for Yinlin:

  1. Thundering Mephis
  2. Tempest Mephis
  3. Impermanence Heron
  4. Mech Abomination

Thundering Mephis and Tempest Mephis will generally be Yinlin’s best lead Echo. Alternatively, you can use the Impermanence Heron for a support role and Mech Abomination for a DPS role.


Yinlin Forte priority

Prioritize Yinlin’s Forte in the following order:

  • Forte Circuit > Resonance Liberation > Resonance Skill > Basic ATK > Intro Skill

Yinlin’s Forte Circuit is her main source of damage, so prioritizing it is highly recommended, followed by Resonance Liberation and then Resonance Skill.


Best weapons for Yinlin

Stringmaster is a 5-star limited Rectifier and Yinlin’s signature weapon. Naturally, it is her best option in the game. It has a Crit Rate second stat bonus, making it easier to build her. Furthermore, the weapon’s passive provides a lot of DMG and ATK% bonuses, which is good for her overall damage output, both on-field and off-field.


2) Cosmic Ripples

Cosmic Ripples is a good 5-star alternative for Yinlin. It provides a ton of ATK% and increases Energy regeneration by a decent amount. However, you must focus more on Crit Rate stats on your Echoes.


3) Augment

Augment is the best 4-star weapon for Yinlin. It provides a Crit Rate bonus from its secondary stat and a lot of ATK from its passive. However, it is a Battle Pass weapon so it might not be accessible to everyone.


4) Jinzhou Keeper

Jinzhou Keeper is a decent 4-star Rectifier for Yinlin. It provides a lot of ATK% bonuses from its secondary stat and passive. However, you will want to focus on Crit stats on your Echoes. The passive also has an HP bonus but it is not that useful.


5) Variation

Variation is a good 4-star Rectifier for Yinlin. The weapon has an Energy Regen bonus second stat and its passive also restores eight Concerto Energy after the character uses their Resonance Skill, making it a good option for a support build. However, she will lose her overall DPS potential.


6) Rectifier of Voyager
