Raphanus Sky Cluster (Elemental Skill)

Calls upon Yuegui: Throwing Mode, a special device created by a certain adeptus to help Yaoyao solve her problems. This skill will be used differently in Holding Mode.


Enters Aiming Mode to adjust the throw direction.

Yuegui: Throwing Mode

Throws out White Jade Radishes that will explode upon hitting characters or opponents, dealing Dendro DMG to opponents within a certain AoE, and healing characters within that same AoE based on Yaoyao's Max HP. If a radish does not hit either an opponent or a character, the radish will remain where it is and explode on contact with a character or opponent, or will explode after its duration expires. Yuegui: Throwing Mode will choose its radish-throw targets.
・If all nearby characters have more than 70% HP remaining, then it will throw the radish at a nearby opponent.
・If nearby characters have 70% or less HP remaining, it will throw a radish at the character with the lowest HP percentage remaining. If no opponents exist nearby, Yuegui will throw White Jade Radishes at characters even if they all have more than 70% HP remaining.
A maximum of 2 instances Yuegui: Throwing Mode can exist at any one time.

Moonjade Descent

At the enjoinment of a certain adeptus, Yuegui's full potential can be unleashed in an emergency, dealing Dendro DMG to nearby opponents and entering an (in some sense) unsurpassed Adeptal Legacy state.

Adeptal Legacy

・White Jade Radishes generated will be changed to heal and deal DMG according to this skill. Explosions will heal all nearby party members, and the Dendro DMG that they deal will be viewed as Elemental Burst DMG instead.
・Summons Yuegui: Jumping Mode at intervals until their limit has been reached. The behavior of this version of Yuegui is the same as that of Yuegui: Throwing Mode in the Elemental Skill, Raphanus Sky Cluster. A maximum of 3 Yuegui: Jumping Mode can exist at any one time.
・Yaoyao's Movement SPD is increased by 15%.
・Yaoyao's Dendro RES will be increased.
The Adeptal Legacy state will end once Yaoyao is off-field, and all remaining Yuegui: Jumping Mode will be cleared once this state ends.

While affected by the Adeptal Legacy state caused by Moonjade Descent, Yaoyao will constantly throw White Jade Radishes at nearby opponents when she is sprinting, jumping, or running. She can throw 1 White Jade Radish this way once every 0.6s.

In Others' Shoes

When White Jade Radishes explode, active characters within their AoE will regain HP every 1s based on 0.8% of Yaoyao's Max HP. This effect lasts 5s.

Tailing On Tiptoes

When Yaoyao is in the party, your characters will not startle Crystalflies and certain other animals when getting near them. Check the "Other" sub-category of the "Living Beings / Wildlife" section in the Archive for creatures this skill works on.

The new weapon recipe that the blacksmith in Fontaine gives you is great for her

Anonymous 26

Mona/Yelan/Yaoyao/Tighnari... I'm new at AR45. So far this set up is fun and easy since Mona and Tighnari skills keep enemies aggroed to one spot along with the bloom cores.

As a new gamer, Yaoyao has been my life-saver. I am building her as an all-rounder. You can't take her off field in her EB, but it's hardly a weakness if she can take the enemies down by herself. Also, she has Xiao's Jade as her weapon. XD
