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

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.

shes actually a great pair with yae
1 team with yaoyao miko,
the other team with nahida + ...........

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

HvNTeR 23

She's a great Co-op healer, mine doesn't have a perfect weapon yet, the artifacts could be better, but with her the whole team has max HP all the time. Probably the best healer (I have a C6)
