What is the best Genshin Impact Yelan build?
Genshin Impact’s Yelan excels in a sub-DPS role, though she can also be used as a main DPS. She is a hydro-bow user whose talents help fill downtime between main DPS attacks, and her elemental burst directly increases an active character’s personal damage.
However, she has a high elemental burst cost that can only be remedied with her C1 constellation, and her elemental burst’s hydro-application can be somewhat inconsistent without her C2 constellation.
She was announced as extremely strong during the beta testing phase, but we’ll have to see how she performs now that she’s fully released. We’ll be sure to update this guide when we’ve become more familiar with the best Yelan build.
What is Genshin Impact Yelan’s best weapon?
Regardless of whether you want to use her as a DPS or sub-DPS, her best weapon is Aqua Simulacra. It’s a new five-star arc designed with her in mind, and both the base stat and critical damage ability are major assets for her.
The Polar Star bow is another great five-star pick for her in both roles, due to its crit rate stats and its ability’s attack boost.
If you’re looking for more affordable options, they differ depending on the role you want to build her for. Mouun’s Moon is the best 4-star arc for main DPS Yelan, while Favonius Warbow is the best 4-star arc for sub-DPS Yelan.

What are the best Genshin Impact Yelan Artifacts?
Regardless of what role you want to put her in, the best Genshin Impact Yelan artifact set is easily Emblem of Severed Fate, due to its energy recharge and elemental burst damage boosts. However, you can combine two pieces of Noblesse Oblige with two pieces of Emblem of Severed fate for a flat boost to both stats.
If you haven’t gotten your hands on the above sets yet, you can use The Exile in the meantime.

Two equipped: increases energy charging by 20%
Four equipped: increases elemental burst damage by 25% of the energy charge. Up to 75% bonus damage can be obtained this way Momiji-Dyed Court domain Emblem of Severed Fate and Noblesse Oblige

Two equipped: increases energy charging by 20%
Four equipped: using Yelan’s elemental burst regenerates two energy for all party members (except Yelan) every two seconds for six seconds Enemy and boss fall
Recommendations for artifact stats and sub-stats
- Sands: Recharge HP% or energy
- Goblet: Water damage bonus
- Circlet: critical hit or critical hit damage
- Charging energy
- Completion rate/crit damage
Try to maintain a 2:1 ratio of critical hits to critical hits, where your critical hits are double your critical hits. We also recommend getting Yelan’s energy charge to around 140% for DPS and 180% for sub-DPS. Charging more energy is of course always nice, but anything above 200-220% is not really necessary.

What is the best Genshin Impact Yelan team comp?
If you use Yelan as the main DPS, we recommend that you go for an electrically charged team.
Combine her with Genshin Impact’s Raiden, Genshin Impact’s Xingqiu, and Genshin Impact’s Kazuha for a team comp aimed at enabling Yelan to cool down her elemental burst-off. She doesn’t need much energy for this build, but you need to make sure Xingqiu is equipped with the sacrificial sword.
Another electrically charged team comp for main DPS Yelan consists of Genshin Impact’s Fischl, Genshin Impact’s Kokomi and Genshin Impact’s Sucrose. This focuses on electro-charge reactions, with the welcome addition of Kokomi’s strong healing. Be sure to equip Sucrose with Viridescent Venerer to get the most out of this comp.
Sub-DPS Yelan works well on vaporization teams, especially alongside Genshin Impact’s Hu Tao. Combine them with Genshin Impact’s Bennett for healing and buffs, and Genshin Impact’s Sucrose for crowd control and resistance destruction.
You can also place Yelan in a national team alongside Genshin Impact’s Raiden, Genshin Impact’s Xiangling and Genshin Impact’s Bennett. In this team, Yelan deals grate damage while Raiden’s burst is cooling down.
