A mysterious person who claims to work for the Civil Affairs Bureau. However, it does not appear anywhere in their registry.
Materials needed to upgrade Yelan
Materials to improve skills
Obviously, you will not necessarily need to raise your 3 talents to the maximum level. The list below includes all the ingredients to pass all 3 to level 10.
Yelan Climbing Materials
Here are the materials required to pass Yelan at its last level of ascension, in order to unlock access to level 90.
Abilities of Yelan
Fires a lifeline and runs at high speed, tangling and marking enemies in its path. At the end of the move, the lifeline explodes, inflicting Hydro DMG on marked enemies based on Yelan’s max HP.
Exquisite Dice of the Deep
Inflicts area Hydro DMG and creates an exquisite die to aid in combat.
Increases the rewards of a 20 hour expedition in Liyue by 25%.
If the team includes characters of 1/2/3/4 elemental types, Yelan’s max HP increases by 6%/12%/18%/30%.
As long as an exquisite die is in combat, the DMG inflicted by the deployed character increases by 1%, then by an additional 3.5% every second. DMG can be increased by up to 50% this way. Using Exquisite Dice of the Depths again for the duration of the effect described above will remove the effect.
Grants an additional charge for Persistent lifeline.
Offered by the house
When an exquisite die triggers a coordinated attack, an additional water arrow is fired to inflict Hydro DMG equal to 14% of Yelan’s max HP. This effect can be triggered once every 1.8s.
Skill Level Exquisite Dice of the Deep +3.
Sleight of hand
Increases max HP of all team characters by 10% for 25s for each enemy marked by Lifeline when it explodes. Max HP can be increased by up to 40% this way.
Persistent Lifeline skill level +3.
Everything for the winner
After using Exquisite Dice from the Deep, Yelan enters a Strategist state. Its normal attacks then become special piercing arrows. These arrows have the same abilities as normal piercing arrows, and the DMG they inflict are considered charged attack DMG dealing 156% of the DMG of normal piercing arrows. The Strategist state lasts for a maximum of 20s or is canceled after shooting 5 arrows.
Yelan will excel with a set Emblem of Shattered Fateparticularly because in addition to improving the energy recharge it needs, the latter will also increase its damage. You can try other things, but nothing comes close to it.
On the weapons side, of course, the Mock water, her signature weapon available in the weapon banner, is probably the best choice for her, it is with this one that she will hurt the most. There are alternatives, like the last sighideal for team compositions based on elemental reactions, and on the 4-star side, the Arc of Favonius can do the job!
For statistics, here is what we recommend, in order:
You will ideally need 220% of energy rechargewhich you can however reduce depending on your team.
Which talents to improve in priority?
As for his talents, prioritize his Exquisite Dice of the Deepfollowed closely by his ability Persistent lifeline. As for the “normal” attack, it will not be very useful to you with it, in theory.
Should Yelan be summoned?
We reassure you right away, Yelan is a good, rather interesting character! Sold by people who tested it on the beta as a 5-star Xingqiu, is that really the case?
More or less. Yelan does not apply the element as well Hydro on the enemies that Xingqiu, which automatically eliminates it to replace the latter in the compositions with Hu Tao for example (Assuming your Yelan has no constellation). Testing is still being done with his second constellation which should improve this.
For the moment, in C0, we can therefore confirm that it is perfectly usable in the teams Freeze (Hydro+Cryo). Also, Yelan is very fun to play, mainly due to his ability to run faster. However, we think that it is much more fun to play in support dps than in pure dps, mainly because the gameplay with the bow, once your skills are recharged, is much less interesting.
We recommend it if you want to change a little of the gameplay of Xingqiu, or if you don’t have it! Remember to test it in the dedicated mode!
