Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Press: Flourishes her polearm in a cloud-grasping stance, dealing Geo DMG. Hold: Takes up the Opening Flourish stance and charges up, forming a shield. DMG Absorption is based on Yun Jin’s Max HP and has 150% effectiveness against all Elemental DMG and Physical DMG. The shield lasts until she finishes unleashing her Elemental Skill. When the skill is released, when its duration ends, or when the shield breaks, Yun Jin will unleash the charged energy as an attack, dealing Geo DMG. Based on the time spent charging, it will either unleash an attack at Charge Level 1 or Level 2.

Geo Support Build

Yun Jin is a support character focused on buffing any other party members who focus on normal attacks as their main source of damage. Due to her Elemental Burst buffing the teams normal attacks by up to 30 stacks which which also scales with her defence stat, she is only good in specific team setups.

Talent Priority

Your main talent to focus on should be her Elemental Burst: Cliffbreaker’s Banner. As this provides the best support she has to offer. After that is maxed out, focus on her Elemental Skill: Opening Flourish.
