Yanfei in Genshin Impact

Yanfei is released on 28 April 2021. You are more likely to invoke her when she is featured in an Character Event Wish.

Yanfei Constellations

Most of Yanfei's DPS is achieved by his charged attacks, only their stamina cost is high. You will be able to manage this aspect more easily with his constellations.

With C1 The Law Knows No Kindness, when Yanfei launches a charged attack, each available scarlet seal reduces his stamina consumption by 10% and increases his resistance to interruption.

The C6 Extra Clause increases the maximum number of seals to 4.

The C4 Supreme Amnesty brings a new aspect to Yanfei's gameplay. Its elemental rampage will generate a shield for 15s. It absorbs a quantity of damage equivalent to 45% of Yanfei's maximum HP. You will be able to play her as a support to protect your team, like Thomas or Zhongli (even if her shield will be less strong).

Gameplay of Yanfei in Genshin Impact

Yanfei is mainly played as a main DPS. Even though her strike force is lower than that of the 5-star DPS, she is still powerful and, above all, very easy to handle. It is an ideal choice for beginners at Genshin Impact.

With her normal Seal of Approval attack, Yanfei fires fireballs that deal up to 3 waves of Pyro damage. When a normal attack hits an enemy, Yanfei gains a Scarlet Seal. She can have up to 3 at a time (4 if you have her C6). Each seal reduces Yanfei's stamina consumption by 15%.

When you have 3 or 4 seals, perform a charged attack to deal more damage. With the Proviso passive, each scarlet seal increases Yanfei's DMG Pyro bonus by 5% for 6 seconds.

Finally, by casting the elemental unleashing of Done Deal, Yanfei summons flames on his enemies. They grant him the maximum number of scarlet seals. Yanfei also benefits from the Brilliance effect for 15 seconds. From then on, she receives a scarlet seal at regular intervals and her charged attacks will do more damage.

A word of advice, keep an eye on Yanfei's scarlet seals to execute charged attacks at the right time. If Yanfei leaves the active position, she will lose her seals.

You will need to increase all his skills, starting with his normal attack to get better multipliers.
