Genshin Impact‘s newest patch update 1.5 is all set to come on April 28th, 2021. With the deployment of the patch, players are now most excited about the two new characters of Yanfei and Eula. Yanfei is a 4-star Pyro character and Eula is a 5-star Cryo character. In this Genshin Impact guide, we will talk about all you need to know about Yanfei, her builds, and the materials required for Ascension.
Yanfei: Playstyle and skill-set of the character
Yanfei is a well-known legal adviser active in Liyue Harbor. A brilliant young lady in whose veins runs the blood of an illuminated beast. She s a 4-star Pyro catalyst user, her constellation is Bestia Lustitia. These are her talents are as they follow.
|Seal of approval||Normal Attack|
|Charged attack |
Consumes stamina, and after a short casting time, consumes all Scarlet Seals to deal AoE Pyro DMG in the area in front of her.
The AoE and DMG of a Charged Attack increase based on the number of Scarlet Seals that it consumes.
|Singed Edict||Elemental Skill|
|Summons blistering flames that deal AoE Pyro DMG.If this attack hits an enemy, Yanfei is granted the maximum number of Scarlet Seals.|
|Done deal||Elemental Burst|
|Triggers a spray of intense flames that rush at nearby opponents, dealing AoE Pyro DMG, granting Yanfei the maximum number of Scarlet Seals, and applying Brilliance to her.|
Periodically grants Yanfei a Scarlet Seal. It increases the DMG of her Charged Attacks. The Brilliance effect stops when Yanfei leaves the field or dies. Its function is similar to that of Ninnguang’s Jade stars.
Sets to farm for Yanfei in Genshin Impact
It is recommended to use these two sets for Yanfei. These include the likes of “Crimson Witch of Flames” & “Wanderer’s Troupe“. Both of these sets are really good on Yanfei and they serve their different purposes. “Crimson witch of flames” offers some overall Pyro damage and the “Wanderer’s set” for charged attack damage. The Wanderer’s set is really hard to farm, therefore it is suggested to go for 4 pieces of the “Crimson Witch of flames” set. This domain is located on Wuwang hill.
