Genshin Impact has announced that the improvements to Yae Miko’s Elemental Skill inside the current update 2.6 will be reversed.

Since her first appearances inside the game’s story quests, Yae Miko has been one of the most popular Genshin Impact characters. In the previous version 2.5, developer MiHoYo eventually decided to add her to the playable roster.

Yae Miko’s elemental skill has been changed in the new Genshin Impact version 2.6. While this alteration was intended to improve her battlefield performance, it had the complete opposite effect. As a result of this change, the developer has decided to roll back the fix, which will go live on April 6.

Because of a change to Yae Miko’s Elemental Skill, her Sesshou Sakura totems now favour the nearest adversary instead of selecting a random target. The major purpose of this adjustment was to improve the consistency of her DPS output and remove the RNG component from her kit. However, this adjustment sparked outrage in the community, as it rendered her totems nearly useless in some situations. Fortunately, MiHoYo, the developer, has heard the complaints and has chosen to reinstate the alterations to their previous state.

The fact that this update negates one of Miko’s key capabilities, which is dealing Electro damage to numerous targets, is why it was first viewed as a negative move. When her totems featured random target selection, this was rather simple to execute.

Because these adjustments rendered several of Yae Miko’s constellations nearly unusable, a large segment of the community has asked for a Primogem refund.

The choice to reverse these modifications so swiftly was lauded by fans who believe that their opinions matter, which is critical in a gacha-based game. Players will also receive a compensation of 100 Primogems, which they can use to purchase the current double banner, which features the new character Ayato.

This update has sparked a discussion regarding the game’s targeting system in the community. Certain skills in the game, such as Venti’s Elemental Burst, have a problem that is comparable to the issues raised in the recent Yea Miko case. Venti’s burst prioritises the first adversary in sight, however many prefer that he shoot his arrow in the direction he’s facing. Players find it highly upsetting when a vital ability like Venti’s burst falls on the absolutely wrong target, destroying their Spiral Abyss run in the process, according to many comments.
