As all Genshin Impact players know, the game features two character banners. Players must often pick which characters they spend their hard-earned primogems on. And in the second phase of version 4.4, the choice is between Yae Miko and Xiao. Both characters have been around in the game for a while and their kits have held solidly since in the game’s shifting meta. But if you aren’t already pulling for one of them for simp reasons and are looking for a comparison between them, then this is the right place. Let’s look at the differences between Yae Miko and Xiao and help you decide which one of them you should pull in Genshin Impact 4.4.

A Comparison Between Xiao and Yae Miko

Playstyle and Team Composition

Xiao: Xiao's unga bunga plunge gameplay and his ability to deliver high single-target damage and great AoE potential have made him well-known. He works well with characters like Faruzan, who is his best in slot buffer and battery combined. Other notable teammates include Furina and Xianyun in his best team.

Yae Miko: Yae’s playstyle is more versatile, offering good DPS and easy application of Electro. She works well in various team compositions and can apply Electro to trigger powerful reactions. The release of the Dendro element and its teams helped her.

Artifact Sets and Damage Output

Xiao: Xiao’s best artifact set for most scenarios is the Vermillion Hereafter artifact set. However, farming for this set can be time-consuming. But for players who are not using Crit Rate weapons such as the Primordial Jade Winged Spear or the Deathmatch, the Marechchaussee Hunter set performs closely.

Yae Miko: Yae works best with the Golden Troupe artifact set. Players can efficiently farm this set and it benefits multiple characters. You can effectively farm for both Yae Miko and Xiao in the GT/MH domain.

Mobile and Overworld Performance

Xiao: Some players find Xiao’s playstyle clunky on mobile devices, especially during combat. However, his mobility and plunging attacks can make traversal in the overworld enjoyable.

Yae Miko: Yae’s simple and effective playstyle makes her a great choice for mobile players. Her ability to summon totems and apply Electro easily makes her ideal for exploring the overworld.

Future Potential

Both characters have the potential for future updates and improvements. Yae Miko’s kit makes her a solid choice for future team compositions, especially if new characters synergize well with Electro reactions. Xiao’s versatility and strong damage output make him a reliable DPS option for the long term, especially with the introduction of new artifacts and characters.

In conclusion, the decision to pull for Yae Miko or Xiao depends on your preferred playstyle, team composition, and future potential. Both characters offer unique strengths and can be valuable additions to your roster in Genshin Impact 4.4.
