Overview

Yachiyo, Peerless Duelist, makes a name for herself as the first Light Blade user with Curse resistance and a Paralysis kit. Her S1, Blossom Flash, deals damage and inflicts Paralysis in a line. This will activate her first passive, Paralysis = Strength +15%. When Yachiyo Paralyses a foe, she gets +15% Strength for 10 seconds, but this cannot occur more than once every 5 seconds. She also has Paralysis Punisher 20%, allowing her to inflict massive damage whenever she successfully paralyses an enemy. Her S2, Peerless Heart, causes her Force Strikes to hit much harder, and with good timing she can use this with her other abilities for high burst damage. 

Strengths

Synergistic Kit

Yachiyo thrives when she can afflict her foes with Paralysis, and has a consistent means of doing so. Paralysis is also a very useful affliction that deals percent based damage to bosses.

Strong Burst Damage

Thanks to her abilities, Yachiyo can wisely time her abilities to inflict Paralysis, then hit the boss with a supercharged force strike to deal massive damage. Her Strength stat is also very high, making her an excellent DPS choice where her kit shines.

Weaknesses

Heavily Reliant on Affliction

If Yachiyo finds herself in a situation where she cannot maintain good uptime with Paralysis on her foes, her damage falls of sharply, to the point that her kit becomes nearly useless.

Fragile Damage Dealer

Yachiyo has low HP and no recovery options. She relies on her team to keep her alive on the front lines.

Dragon Recommendations

  • Cupid: The Light Strength dragon is the top option for Yachiyo.
  • Liger: Despite having a lower Strength boost, this mixed dragon can also inflict Paralysis, making him a very synergistic option for Yachiyo.
  • Takemikazuchi: With a hefty STR boost and Overdrive Punisher, this is a great choice for Yachiyo.
  • Lindworm: A 4★ dragon that is a decent budget option thanks to her large STR boost.

Weapon Recommendations

  • Heavenwing: The Light IO 5★ blade is the strongest option statwise, and gives a recovery option for Yachiyo.
  • Primal Thunder: The Void 5★ weapon unfortunately has Stunned Punisher instead of Paralysis, but the Skill Prep is welcome.
  • Thunderfang: A good 4★ budget choice with a nice active Skill.

Wyrmprint Recommendations

Pair 1

Pair 2

With her S2 boosting her force strikes, Yachiyo really appreciates a boost to that multiplier, making Stellar Show her top choice. She also appreciates Skill Damage from Heralds of Hinomoto or Resounding Rendition, with the Skill Haste and Crit being a nice bonus either way.
