22 apr 2021 at 19:33

Yanfei is a new four-star character who will appear in the game with the release of update 1.5. The heroine is a well-known legal consultant in Liyue. During battles, the character will use Catalyst and Pyro abilities. She is likely an S or A-tier character in the tier list.

In this guide, we will discuss all the pros and cons of Yanfei, her abilities, and share the best build for this character. Let's get started!

Yanfei's Basic Abilities

Active Abilities of Yanfei

Signed Edict - Normal Attack

The character generates more than three fireballs using the catalyst, which deal Pyro damage. When defeating enemies with this ability, Crimson Seal is granted. Currently, it is known that up to three seals can be collected. When all seals are obtained, you will receive an effect that reduces stamina consumption during battles.

During the attack activation, all seals are consumed, and AoE damage is dealt after a few seconds. The damage and radius increase based on the number of seals consumed.

If you attack from the air, the character will deal damage to all enemies in its path. When colliding with the ground, the character inflicts AoE damage.

Signed Edict - Elemental Skill

The character ignites an area of the ground in front of her, and if there are enemies within it, the seal counter will be replenished to its maximum.

Done Deal - Elemental Burst

The character summons flames that hit nearby enemies, dealing AoE Pyro damage. The character obtains the maximum number of seals and also gains the Brilliance effect. This buff can add a new seal to the existing ones, thereby increasing the damage from charged attacks. The effect is completely nullified upon death or at the end of the battle.

Passive Abilities

  1. Proviso - Nearby Liyue specialty ores are displayed on the mini-map when the character is in Liyue.

  2. Blazing Eye - While using the Crimson Seal, charged attacks increase the character's attack by a significant amount.

  3. Extra Damage - Charged attacks also deal AoE Pyro damage equal to 80% of the initial attack damage.
