Cosmic Ripples (5-Star)

Stringmaster (5-Star)
Weapons: Stringmaster | Wuthering Waves - zilliongamerWith its focus on amplifying Resonance damage, Stringmaster is a top choice for Yinlin. Her "Magnetic Roar" nd "Lightning Execution" skills will hit harder, maximizing her Electro damage output.
Augment (4-Star)
Weapons: Augment | Wuthering Waves - zilliongamerThe attack boost provided by Augment after using Resonance Liberation synergizes perfectly with Yinlin's "Sky-breaking Thunder Strike." This burst of damage can quickly take down enemies marked with "Sin Binding" or "Punishment" Marks.
Variation (4-Star)
Weapons: Variation | Wuthering Waves - zilliongamerThis weapon rewards Yinlin for using her Resonance Skills by restoring Concerto Energy. This allows her to unleash her powerful abilities more often, enhancing both her damage output and crowd control potential.
Type V (3-Star)
Weapons: Originite: Type V | Wuthering Waves - zilliongamerWhile a 3-star option, Originite: Type V still provides a valuable ATK boost when entering the battlefield and triggering a Concerto Effect. This can give Yinlin an early advantage in combat, especially when combined with her Intro Skill.
