Genshin Impact 2.7 update is all set to launch soon and will add tons of new content, including new characters, weapons, enemies, events, and more. However, players are the most excited about the mysterious character Yelan who will finally get a release in the upcoming patch.

Yelan was seen on many occasions in the game; however, her face was never revealed. HoYoverse announced her officially via the Genshin Impact Twitter account, and according to her official description, she is a mysterious person who claims to work for the Ministry of Civil Affairs.

She was also spotted in the 2.6 update while doing a quest in The Chasm; however, she disappeared like a storm. While HoYoverse is yet to announce her abilities and release date, the leakers have leaked all the information about her.

Attacks

  • Normal Attack: Perform up to four consecutive shots with a bow.
  • Charged Attack: Perform a more precise Aimed Shot with increased DMG. While aiming, flowing water will accumulate on the arrowhead. A fully charged torrential arrow will deal Hydro DMG. Additionally, Genshin Yelan will enter a “Breakthrough’ state after spending 5s out of combat, which will cause her next Charged Aimed Shot to have 80% decreased charge time, and once charged, she can fire a “Breakthrough Barb” that will deal AoE Hydro DMG based on Yelan’s Max HP.
  • Plunging Attack: Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Elemental Skill

  • Lingering Lifeline: Fires off a Lifeline that tractors her in rapidly, entangling and marking opponents along its path. When her rapid movement ends, the Lifeline will explode, dealing Hydro DMG to the marked opponents based on Yelan’s Max HP. The cooldown period is 10 seconds.

Elemental Burst

  • Depth-Clarion Dice: Deals AoE Hydro DMG and creates an “Exquisite Throw,” which aids her in battle. The cooldown period is 18 seconds.
    • Exquisite Throw: Follows the character around and will initiate a coordinated attack under the following circumstances, dealing Hydro DMG based on Yelan’s Max HP:
      • Can occur once every second when your active character uses a Normal Attack.
      • Will occur each time Yelan’s Lifeline explodes and hits opponents.

Passive Talents

  • Lengthy Consideration: Gains 25% more rewards when dispatched on a Liyue Expedition for 20 hours.
