Yangyang Overview (1.0.21)

In Wuthering Waves, Yangyang is a 4-Stars Aero character and uses Sword during the fight.

Yangyang embarked on a distant journey from her homeland to serve as an Outrider in Jinzhou. Rather than pursuing personal acclaim, she opts to offer solace through silent companionship to those around her. Through enduring hardships and personal struggles, she has discovered a profound calling—to be a guiding light and a supportive presence in a world that still yearns for healing.

Yangyang Review (1.0.21)

Yangyang is a 4-Star Aero character in Wuthering Waves.

A free character obtained immediately upon entering the game. Due to the low Skill Multiplier, her damage gradually falls behind as the game progresses.

Although her Concerto Energy acquisition ability is decent, due to the low damage output and unimpressive Outro Skill, it’s challenging to find a suitable team for her.

Pros

  • Resonance Liberation can pull enemies together, providing some benefit when paired with teammates that have small attack area.

Cons

  • While the Outro Skill can provide additional Resonance Energy, its value is still not high and is somewhat dispensable.
  • Yangyang’s Forte Circuit cannot knock back super-armor enemies.

Yangyang Team Comp (1.0.21)

Yangyang Premium Best Team

Sub DPS
Over 60% of Chixia’s damage comes from Resonance Skill types, with Resonance Skill: Boom Boom accounting for a significant portion. Activating Resonance Skill: Boom Boom requires 30 Thermobaric Bullets, which can be easily interrupted when facing highly mobile enemies.

Yangyang’s Outro Skill can restore Liberation Energy for Chixia. Although Chixia’s Resonance Liberation multiplier is the highest among four-star characters, it requires 150 energy points. Given that Chixia’s energy restoration is not very efficient, players who enjoy using Chixia’s Liberation should pair her with Yangyang to help with energy recovery.

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.
