Jiyan Overview (1.0.21)

Jiyan uses Broadblade during the fight. Jiyan is a 5-Stars Aero character in Wuthering Waves.

Midnight Rangers’ commander, Jiyan, is a man of righteous and resolute heart. He is able to bend the slightest breeze into the sharpest lance. His perennial experience in battles and as a leader on the battlefronts opposing the Lament, allowed him to witness the truths and cruelties of the world.

Being a commander bears the duties of decision making, some pained him, yet none dazed him.

Jiyan Review (1.0.21)

Jiyan is a 5-Star Aero character in Wuthering Waves.

Aero Damage’s DPS character relies on the Intro Skill to activate, and after initiating the Resonance Liberation ultimate, Heavy Attacks account for about 90% of the total damage. When Resonance Liberation is activated, the attack mode changes, offering a larger attack range and the ability to suppress lightweight enemies.

The high attack frequency of the Lance of Qingloong allows for the quick activation of stacking Inherent Skills and Weapon Effects. When paired with Morfeti, it can deal very high total damage against multiple enemies.

Pros

  • Simple operation and easy to master, requiring little practice to maximize damage during the Liberation period.
  • Based on fast-switching combat techniques in Ming Tide, you can switch teammates immediately after each use of the Lance of Qingloong to minimize teammate downtime and increase the overall DPS of the team.
  • Jiyan can control small enemies, enhancing his safety in ToA.

 

Cons

  • Overly reliant on the Intro Skill, making it unsuitable for 1V1 scenarios.
  • Without proficiency in fast-switching, the charging time is relatively long.
  • Requires a certain amount of Energy Regen to improve charging issues (recommended 15%).

Jiyan Team Comp (1.0.21)

Jiyan Best Team 

Sub DPS

The main damage type of Jiyan is Heavy Attack Damage. Morfeti’s Outro Skill provides Heavy Attack DMG Deepen, making Morfeti the best teammate for Jiyan. Additionally, Morfeti has off-field coordinated attacks, offering substantial output compared to other Sub DPS options.

Sanhua provides Normal Attack DMG Deepen, which is not useful for Jiyan. However, Sanhua’s high-frequency switching and rapid energy restoration make her versatile and applicable to many teams. S6 Sanhua can increase the entire team’s ATK%.

Aalto provides Aero DMG Deepen, making Aalto a good alternative to Morfeti. However, Aalto’s energy insufficiency can affect the team’s overall damage output.

Healer

Verina’s healing abilities and Concerto Energy acquisition abilities are both greater than Baizhi’s, making her the preferred healer character. Verina’s Inherent Skill provides a one-time death immunity effect. Baizhi also has a similar effect that is even better, but it requires unlocking at Sequence 5.

Verina’s healing amount is based on her ATK, so Verina has a certain degree of damage output. If you build it well, her damage should not be underestimated.

Verina’s Inherent Skill can provide a 20% attack buff to the entire team, while Baizhi can only provide a 15% attack buff to a single character.

More Build Guides

Yinlin

An Electro damage character with both support and DPS capabilities, Yinlin excels due to the ‘Punishment Mark’ damage type of her Forte Circuit, which is classified as Resonance Skill damage. In the context of the team’s rotation, Resonance Skill damage comprises approximately 50% of Yinlin’s total damage output. Her true value, however, lies not in the off-field coordinated ‘Punishment Mark’ damage, but rather in her effective Concerto Energy generation and the unique buff provided by her Outro Skill in the current version.

Jiyan

An Aero Damage DPS character, this hero relies on the Intro Skill to activate. Once the Resonance Liberation ultimate is initiated, Heavy Attacks contribute to approximately 90% of the total damage. Activating Resonance Liberation changes the attack mode, offering a larger attack range and the ability to suppress lightweight enemies.

The high attack frequency of the Lance of Qingloong allows for the quick activation of stacking Inherent Skills and Weapon Effects. When paired with Morfeti, it can deal exceptionally high total damage against multiple enemies.

Jianxin

Jianxin possesses comprehensive support abilities, providing shields, healing, and pulling enemies together. The range and intensity of the pull are currently the best in this version, although not yet excellent.

The Resonance Skill functions as a damage-immune defensive counter, making it very suitable for novice players who are unfamiliar with action games to tackle high-difficulty dungeons.

While Jianxin does have damage output capabilities, the multipliers are very low and it lacks burst methods.
