Yelan Base Stats
Yelan’s ascension stat is bonus Critical Rate, which increases with each ascension phase.
Yelan Ascension Materials
Here is the list of Yelan materials needed to reach her maximum ascension level: Varunada Lazurite, Insignia from Fatui Skirmisher, and Runic Fang. As for Starconch, it can be found on the beaches of Liyue or the icy coasts of Dragonspine.
Yelan Talent Materials
The materials to level up Yelan’s talent are Insignia from Fatui Skirmisher and Prosperity book series from Taishan Mansion domain located near Jueyun Karst. Her weekly boss material Gilded Scale is a possible rewards from completing the Beneath the Dragon-Queller trounce domain in Liyue.
The total level-up materials required for each of Yelan’s Talents are as follows:
Yelan is a hydro DPS who deals substantial damage and applies hydro to set up reactions. Her kit can be convenient to use purely for off-field purposes but it also has room for interesting combos that aspiring players can learn.
|Normal Attack |
Performs up to 4 consecutive shots with a bow.
Perform a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG. While aiming, flowing water will accumulate on the arrowhead. A fully charged torrential arrow will deal Hydro DMG.
Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
Yelan will enter a “Breakthrough” state after spending 5 seconds out of combat, which will cause her next Charged Aimed Shot to have 80% decreased charge time, and once charged, she can fire a “Breakthrough Barb” that will deal AoE Hydro DMG based on Yelan’s Max HP.
|Attributes||Level 1||Level 10|
|4-Hit DMG||21.67% x 3||42.84% x 3|
|Fully-Charged Aimed Shot||124%||223.2%|
|Breakthrough Barb DMG||11.58% Max HP||20.84% Max HP|
|Low / High Plunge DMG||113.63% / 141.93%||224.62% / 280.57%|
Players can actually choose to ignore the charged attack and its breakthrough mechanic completely, but we still believe it has its merits and is worth trying out.
If you remain out of combat for 5 seconds, Yelan enters the breakthrough state, indicated by her glowing wristband, signifying that the effect is ready. It’s important to note that being “out of combat” means your entire team should not be engaged in battle. Even if Yelan is not currently switched in, but your team is still in combat, the breakthrough state won’t activate.
The breakthrough state significantly reduces her charged attack cooldown, essentially charging it almost instantaneously and causing it to deal AOE hydro damage.
In theory, executing a breakthrough charged attack is beneficial, especially when facing groups of enemies, as it delivers quick AOE damage. Additionally, the attack creates an AOE effect even if the shot hits the ground, so precise aiming isn’t necessary.
To increase the damage of her normal attack, you need to level it up, which consumes resources for a talent with a somewhat niche purpose. However, it’s something you can eventually do to cover all aspects of her kit.
In essence, only use and level up the charged attack if you want to maximize her entire kit rotation; otherwise, you can choose to ignore it and focus on her Skill and Burst abilities.
|Fires off a Lifeline that tractors her in rapidly, entangling and marking opponents along its path. When her rapid movement ends, the Lifeline will explode, dealing Hydro DMG to the marked opponents based on Yelan’s Max HP. |
Moves a certain distance forward swiftly.
Engages in continuous, swift movement, during which Yelan’s resistance to interruption is increased. During this time, Yelan can control this rapid movement and end it by using this skill again. Additionally, each opponent marked by the “Lifeline” when it explodes grants Yelan a 34% chance to reset her “Breakthrough” state.
|Attributes||Level 1||Level 15|
|Skill DMG||22.61% Max HP||53.71% Max HP|
|Max Duration (Hold)||3 Seconds||3 Seconds|
|Cooldown||10 Seconds||10 Seconds|
Her skill work by passing through enemies while it’s triggered marks them. Either you press it for instant damage or hold it to move around quickly and mark more enemies to damage.
This can be quite helpful for battlefield mobility. You gain interruption resistance by using the hold version, but you still take damage and reaction effects like being frozen.
All enemies marked will simultaneously take hydro damage when triggered and you’ll generate 4 hydro particles. It should be noted that the Hydro only applies when it is activated, not when the mark is applied. This actually can be set up for vaporized reactions.
We found that it actually deals good damage, though because it scales on HP, attack buffs have no effect on it. It also has another mechanic in which each enemy marked gives a 34% chance to reset her breakthrough state if it’s on cooldown.
So, while waiting to catch the hydro particles generated by her skill, you can use her charge attack.
|Deals AoE Hydro DMG and creates an “Exquisite Throw,” which aids her in battle. |
This follows the character around and will initiate a coordinated attack under the following circumstances, dealing Hydro DMG based on Yelan’s Max HP:
|Attributes||Level 1||Level 15|
|Burst DMG||7.31% Max HP||17.36% Max HP|
|Exquisite Throw DMG||4.87% Max HP x 3||11.57% Max HP x 3|
|Duration||15 Seconds||15 Seconds|
|Cooldown||18 Seconds||18 Seconds|
When you activate her burst, you deal AOE hydro damage and summon a dice that deals coordinated attacks every second with the active character’s normal attacks. It deals damage and applies hydro by firing three projectiles at once. It can also activate its effect if you trigger her skill damage.
This is Yelan’s main source of damage and hydro application utility, making it the most important part of her kit. Level up her Burst talent first, then her Skill level, and finally her Normal Attack talent, depending on your usage.
