Tenki Ame
Expand
Tenki Ame refers to sunshowers, when rain falls from the sky even though the sky is clear. It usually occurs at the boundary between rainy and sunny weather, or just as rainclouds are clearing up, which is a good representation of Yukari's temperament. Yukari is endowed with Earth Phase, showing how she accepts everything just as Gensokyo does, and Sun Essence, from her strict adherence to the rules.

The encompassing and regenerative Earth Phase resists Fire Phase, because fire produces earth, but it is weak to Wood Phase, because wood parts earth.

The alluring and arrogant Sun Essence resists the diverse and uncooperative Star Essence, but it is weak to the cooperative and indecisive Moon Essence.

Info
Yukari Yakumo's Spread Shot. She summons Ran, her shikigami, and makes her shoot out needles in this shikigami bullet attack. The fact that Yukari makes her shikigami fight even though she is a youkai herself is very much typical of her. Are the needles made of Ran's fur...?

Bullet Info
Yukari Yakumo's Last Word. It uses a barrier made of bullets, showcasing Yukari's very essence. Phantasm, foam, and shadow are all ephemeral―a metaphor for life. While normally it would be in a youkai's nature to attack humans and cause them harm, Yukari protects Gensokyo, and that includes the humans in it.

Character Ability

Capable of manipulating boundaries
Expand
A frightening ability that is versatile and powerful. Boundaries exist for everything and can be found everywhere. Yukari can control them all, and she could even destroy them to create something new if she wanted to. She has the ability to overturn everything from the ground up. If she actually did, her power would rival that of the gods... or even surpass them. However, it seems like she has no intentions of doing anything of the sort... But who knows? This is Yukari. She is always scheming something.
When using Boost, party's Yang DEF 1 level UP (1 turn).
When using Graze, own Focus 1 level UP (1 turn).
DMG from resisted elements 30% DOWN.

Character Analysis

“Gensokyo accepts everything. And that’s a cruel, cruel thing.”

The Gap Sage, Yukari Yakumo is at once both a lazy trickster who sleeps the days away, and a protector of Gensokyo who loves it with all of her heart. As such, she has something of a mixed reputation - most days, she’s seen as something of a nuisance that most who know her don’t take all that seriously, in spite of her vast power and status. However, when things are truly dire, she uses the power of boundary manipulation (such as the boundary between day and night, turning dusk to dawn) to defend Gensokyo. Or when she’s just kind of bored and wants to mess around, with Yukari it really could be either one. Regardless, those powers live up to the reputation indeed, with Yukari manipulating the boundary between good and bad to make herself a A Tier Friend.

For farming purposes, unfortunately much like her tendency to be lazy if nothing truly dire is going on, Yukari underperforms in spite of having an All Last Word. It’s certainly not impossible to pull solid numbers out of her - especially if you provide her with Power support in the form of a teammate’s skills, or as always, simply turn the difficulty down. But unfortunately she’ll simply be incapable of solo farming most event stages on Lunatic - you’ll have to take her to Hard, give her a teammate, or simply use someone else. 

For hard fights, it’s an entirely different story, one in which Yukari shines. First and foremost, you are not bringing her to any fight over in one turn - she provides no offensive utility, and her Last Word’s damage is back loaded. If you keep that in mind, she has a lot to offer - firstly, her defensive utility is simply unparalleled. Due to her third skill, she can restore two Barriers to her entire team every five turns - a number that nobody else can even come close to, allowing her to double your team’s durability in longer fights. She also has a fantastic amount of Focus, between her first skill, her second Spell Card, and Focus Shot - whilst this is more a footnote, she can easily hit and stay at the Focus cap for an entire fight, which can be extremely useful on occasion.

Offensively, Yukari’s no slouch either. Her Last Word may deal unimpressive damage at 1 Power, but get her to 3 Power (in, say, those longer fights she excels at) and that’s a different story - she’ll deal as much damage as the likes of Ran or a 3 Power Reimu, with the potential to do even more if you provide her offensive support. Additionally, her Break capabilities are also solid - her Focus Shot has 1 Earth Break at 0 Power, her Spell card 1 has a fairly average amount of Earth at 1/1/2/3 Breaks at 0/1/2/3 Power, and her Spell Card 2 has both All targeting and 2 Earth and Sun breaks at 3 Power - a fantastic thing to have when weaknesses are usually mixed, if somewhat letdown by needing the full 3 Power when she already needs 3 Power for her Last Word. Finally, she also provides 1 Level of Yang DEF Down to All foes from her second Spell Card, which goes well both with her own Last Word as well as other Yang attackers.

Overall, Yukari shines in a specific type of fight - any fight that lasts at least two turns, which in all fairness will make up the bulk of harder fights. She gets even more fantastic the longer fights go on, tweaking the boundary between defeat and victory in your favor.

Here are the chances for Yukari’s secondary effects, alongside her Hard scaling (per bullet):

Yakumo Summoning Ceremony: Chance for Yang DEF Down 40%/0%/0%/0%/0%/0%

Apparition Needle: Hard 40%/40%/0%/0%/40%/0%

Chance for Focus UP 50%/0%/0%/0%/0%/0%

Chance for Yang DEF DOWN 40%/0%/0%/0%/0%/0%

Chance for Focus UP 0%/0%/50%/0%/0%/0%

Chance for Yang DEF UP 0%/0%/0%/0%/0%/50%

Profound Bullet Barrier - Phantasm, Foam, and Shadow: Hard 0%/70%/80%/90%/90%/100%

Chance for Yang DEF DOWN 100%/0%/0%/0%/0%/0%

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

Like most units, Yukari enjoys either Accuracy up, to ensure that her Breaks will land, or Spirit Power recovery, to fuel her next attack. As she’s especially Power hungry, and her first Spell Card is extremely accurate, it is recommended that it gets Spirit Power recovery instead of Accuracy up. For stat sticks, look to Story Cards with Yang ATK Up and Yang DEF Up - although keep in mind that Yukari often will not have room for them, as she’s poorly suited to farming content, which is where you’d want stat sticks in the first place.

Last Word

Since you’re never using Yukari to farm, and her Last Word is already extremely accurate, she overwhelmingly prefers Yang ATK Up where possible. As such, Ordinary Magician is the obvious go-to, but your best Yang ATK Up card will also suffice. Failing that, as her Last Word scales with her Yang DEF, any card that provides Yang DEF Up will also work.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Yukari’s third skill forms the bulk of her power, and as such should be leveled up first. After that, her second skill is useful both offensively and defensively, and should be leveled up next. Lastly, her first skill is still somewhat useful, but rather more niche, so it can be saved for last - especially if dojo slots are something she and other units are competing for.

Character Strengths

+ Unparalleled team-wide Barrier restoration, restoring 2 Barriers every 5 turns team-wide
+ Access to Earth on a Basic Shot at 0 Power
+ All targeting Spell Card with 2 Earth and Star Breaks at 3 Power
+ Very solid damage on All Last Word at 3 Power

Character Weaknesses

- Last Word deals low damage at 1 Power
- Utility is entirely defensive, leaving her somewhat lacking for shorter fights
