Genshin Impact: Yelan Build Guide

Team Compositions Constellation Guide

Yelan build in Genshin Impact revolves around HP, like most Hydro characters. The significance of HP for Hydro units is even more emphasized when HoYoverse decides to change the effect of Hydro Resonance. Previously, bringing two Hydro in a team would enhance their healing, which is really niche; now, it boosts HP, which is highly more useful. For example, this Resonance buff is amazing for the Yelan + Xingqiu + Hu Tao + Zhongli team comp.

Only Yelan’s Normal Attack scales with ATK, which means she doesn’t need this stat at all. Instead, Yelan build in Genshin Impact is dominated by Crit, HP, and Energy Recharge.

Yelan Build – Best Weapon


Here’s a quick overview of the best weapons for Yelan build in Genshin Impact:

  1. Aqua Simulacra: Best-in-slot bow for Yelan. It provides HP and massive Crit DMG sub-stat, along with an unconditional passive.
  2. Favonius Warbow: Great for its Energy Recharge sub-stat. It also helps the team with battery.
  3. Hunter’s Path: Great Crit Rate stat-stick. Passive isn’t particularly useful.
  4. Polar Star: Increases Skill and Burst DMG.
  5. Thundering Pulse: Crit DMG stat-stick. Passive is useless.
  6. Skyward Harp: Good source of Crit Rate and Crit DMG. Passive isn’t useless but insignificant.
  7. Elegy For The End: Not the best option for damage, but a great weapon to buff the team.
  8. Mouun’s Moon: Amazing bow if Yelan is in a team that demands a lot of Energy.
  9. Sacrificial Bow: Good Energy Recharge sub-stat. Best used at higher refinement.
  10. Viridescent Hunt: Decent 4-star stat-stick.
  11. Fading Twilight: F2P bow that grants Energy Recharge and DMG boost.
  12. The Stringless: Increases Skill and Burst DMG, but the sub-stat is niche.
  13. Recurve Bow: A 3-star bow that enhances HP.
  14. Slingshot: A 3-star bow that boosts Crit Rate.

Yelan Build – Best Artifact


The absolute best option for Yelan build in Genshin Impact is four Emblem, but mixing two-piece of other sets is also viable if players don’t have a decent four-piece set. So people can pick two and mix these sets up:

  • 2-Emblem of Severed Fate
  • 2-HP +20%
  • 2-Hydro DMG Bonus +15%
  • 2-Noblesse Oblige

For the main stat, it’s a little more complicated. Here’s a quick overview of when people should use a main stat:

  • Timepiece
    • HP: If Energy Recharge requirement is fulfilled
    • Energy Recharge: If players are struggling with regaining Yelan’s Burst
  • Goblet
    • Hydro DMG Bonus: Generally the best option
    • HP: HP is viable if Yelan is filled with DMG buffer (Mouun’s Moon, Kazuha, Raiden Shogun, and so on), or if the HP piece is godly while the Hydro is terrible
  • Headpiece
    • Crit Rate or Crit DMG: Generally the best option
    • HP: Viable if the HP piece is godly while the Crit is terrible

Yelan Talent Priority In Genshin Impact


Yelan talent priority in Genshin Impact is Elemental Burst > Elemental Skill > Normal Attack. Note that Normal Attack should only be leveled if players actively use her Breakthrough State, which is done by using a Charged Attack when her bracelet glows.

Yelan Talent Level Recommendation

  • Normal Attack: 1 to 6
  • Elemental Skill: 8 to 10
  • Elemental Burst: 10

About the author


In love with RPGs like Souls and Elder Scrolls games. I also enjoy RTS like Age of Empires and the ancient Command and Conquer games. Despite all that, I still enjoy light games like Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail. In conclusion, I like to give every single game a fair chance as long as it looks like it was made with passion.
