Yinlin in Wuthering Waves

Yinlin is one of the limited banner characters in Wuthering Waves, and if you’re wondering about her kit and materials, here’s all you need to know. 

Not long to go until the May 22 release of Wuthering Waves, and the open-world RPG is likely to start with Jiyan as the featured character in the limited banner. Past that, it’ll be Yinlin’s turn — the only other confirmed limited character for the game. 

Here are the full details on Yinlin’s kit and materials in Wuthering Waves, based on the recent closed betas. 

Who is Yinlin in Wuthering Waves?

Described as someone who “possesses a heart of gold,” Yinlin in Wuthering Waves works in secret to uncover the hidden crimes in Jinzhou. Little else is known about her, other than the fact that she was expelled from her position as a patroller by the Public Security Bureau.

The flamboyant lady and her morbid-looking puppet can be seen in the game pursuing hidden evils in secrecy. 

When does Yinlin arrive in Wuthering Waves?

Kuro Games have not shared any details on Yinlin’s release in Wuthering Waves. However, given that she is the one of the only two limited banner 5-star characters, we expect her to arrive in phase 2 of version 1.0, after Jiyan’s banner ends. 

We also don’t know how long each phase in Wuthering Waves lasts, but we’ll be sure to update whenever we learn the exact date for Yinlin’s release. 

Yinlin attribute & weapon

In Wuthering Waves, Yinlin is a five-star Electro Resonator and will wield a Rectifier to displace charges. 

Yinlin upgrade materials

Currently, we only know about two materials for upgrading Yinlin in Wuthering Waves, including: 

  • Character upgrade: Coriolus
  • Talent upgrade: Whispering Cores

We’ll update once all her materials are revealed.
