Looking for the best Yelan build in Genshin Impact? Yelam was introduced back in the Genshin Impact 2.7 update and has remained a key character on the roster.
Yelan is a Hydro bow user and her attacks scale with HP – when using the correct set of artifacts, she’s capable of dealing deadly amounts of damage. The best Genshin Impact Yelan build will need the right set of weapons and artifacts that make the most of her charge attack, elemental skill, and burst to build her into a lethal sub-DPS character. It also helps she has a killer passive ability, which means there are many candidates for the best Yelan team composition. She returns to the roster as part of the first set of banners in Genshin Impact 4.0, so you’d better unlock her while you still can.
Yelan Sub-DPS build
The best Genshin Impact Yelan build is:
- Weapon: Aqua Simulacra
- Artifact: Emblem of Severed Fate
Best Genshin Impact Yelan weapon
Yelan arrived alongside the Aqua Simulacra. This bow increases damage by 16%, resulting in higher damage from both Yelan’s burst and elemental skill.
The Sacrificial Bow is another excellent choice, capitalizing on the secondary elemental recharge stat for her burst, and focuses on Yelan’s elemental skill. After damaging an opponent with an elemental skill, the weapon has a 40% chance to end the skill’s cooldown, resulting in more charges.
Best Genshin Impact Yelan artifacts
For the artifacts, we’ve chosen the four-piece Emblem of Severed Fate. This artifact set is perfect for Yelan as it provides her with additional energy recharge, in addition to increasing her elemental burst damage. We highly recommend aiming for crit damage, energy recharge, and crit rate for your artifact sub stats.
You could also opt for a two-piece Noblesse Oblige and Heart of Depth set, but it depends on your support characters and whether you have a healer in your party. Noblesse Oblige provides +20% damage to Yelan’s elemental burst, while Hearth of Depth provides a Hydro damage bonus of 15%.
Another option is the Heart of Depth four-piece set, which provides a 30% damage boost for 15 seconds to normal and charged attacks after using an elemental skill. You also get a Hydro damage bonus of 15%, perfect for dealing damage with Yelan’s abilities.
