Yinlin Review (1.0.21)

Yinlin is a 5-Star Character in Wuthering Waves.

Electro damage character with both support and DPS capabilities. Due to the ‘Punishment Mark’ damage type of Forte Circuit being Resonance Skill damage, considering the team’s rotation, Resonance Skill damage accounts for about 50% of Yinlin’s total damage. Yinlin’s greatest value lies not in off-field coordinated ‘Punishment Mark’ damage but in her decent ability to generate Concerto Energy and her unique Outro Skill buff in the current version.

Pros

  • Yinlin’s Outro Skill provides a 25% Resonance Liberation DMG Deepen and 20% Electro DMG Deepen, making it the first Outro Skill with dual-type buffs. This means Yinlin can serve characters that focus on Resonance Liberation or Electro DMG. While the benefits are slightly lower compared to single-type Outro Skill buffs, it offers broader applicability.
  • Yinlin’s operations are relatively simple and easy to master, with the ability to cancel the Resonance Skill’s animation lock through dodging. Due to a bug in CBT 3 where the Resonance Liberation cannot correctly restore Judgement Points, Yinlin’s rotation cannot be determined. However, by referencing characters like Lingyang who restore Forte Circuit Energy through Resonance Liberation, Yinlin, with Resonance Liberation, likely doesn’t need to perform four-stage enhanced Basic Attacks to fully restore Judgement Points, thereby reducing on-field time. This part will be further confirmed in offical release of the game.

Cons

  • As a limited character with a support-oriented role, Yinlin’s multipliers are not impressive. Even with a maxed-out resonance chain, her performance is only comparable to a 0+1 limited DPS character (Jiyan).

Yinlin Resonance Chain (1.0.21)

Suggested Resonance Chain

Sequence 3
Sequence 6

The greatest increase comes from Sequence 6, which unlocks Yinlin as the Main DPS, resulting in a total increase of 31%. Next is Sequence 3, which increases the lightning strike multiplier of Yinlin’s Forte Circuit, giving an overall boost of about 22% to Yinlin. Sequence 2 is related to energy recovery and is generally not included in the calculations. However, since it simultaneously restores Forte Circuit Energy (Judgment Point), it can speed up Yinlin’s damage output. This makes it a mechanism Sequence that can be considered for pulling.

*The % increase is relative to the previous Resonance Chain.

Both Tempest Mephis and Thundering Mephis can increase Yinlin’s damage, but Thundering Mephis has a longer action time, making it slightly inferior to Tempest Mephis overall.

Although Violet-Feathered Heron’s Counterattack multiplier is decent and it can restore 5 Concerto points, it seems appealing at first glance. However, its practical use is limited as it often leads to standing idle.

Yinlin Team Comp (1.0.21)

Yinlin Best Team 1

Main DPS – Calcharo

Yinlin’s Outro Skill perfectly complements Calcharo. During Resonance Liberation, Calcharo’s Liberation Damage and Basic Attack Damage are approximately in a 2:1 ratio. Yinlin also provides Resonance Liberation Deepen and Electro Damage Deepen.

Whether Yinlin is equipped with the Void Thunder set as a Sub DPS or the Moonlit Clouds set as a full support for Calcharo, both options are viable choices.

In the early stages, when resources are limited, you can choose the Moonlit Clouds set without investing too much in upgrading Echoes. In the later stages, when resources are abundant, using the Void Thunder set can significantly enhance the overall damage output of the team.

Healer – Verina/Baizhi

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.

Yinlin Best Team 2

Sub DPS – Sanhua/Taoqi

Apart from Sequence 6 Yinlin, it is not recommended to use Yinlin as the Main DPS. Yinlin has low overall multipliers, long downtime, and currently lacks suitable characters to support her. Although Taoqi can provide Resonance Skill Deepen (since Yinlin’s Forte Circuit “Judgment Strike” is Resonance Skill Type Damage), Taoqi’s slow attack frequency and slow concerto energy generation make it difficult to form a smooth rotation cycle with Yinlin.

When not considering supporting Yinlin, her teammates only need to effectively trigger Yinlin’s off-field attacks. Characters that can quickly generate Concerto Energy have a higher priority, such as Sanhua.

Healer – Verina/Baizhi

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.
