Best Genshin Impact Yanfei Build

Are you looking for the best Genshin Impact Yanfei build? 

There is no doubt that the most significant addition to Genshin Impact version 1.5 is the housing system. However, there are still many inclusions with the said update that the Serenitea Pot has overshadowed.

Genshin Impact 1.5 also included a new character that some players may have overlooked due to their excitement with the new housing system. 

The latest playable character in the game is named Yanfei, a top-notch legal expert from the region of Liyue. She is a 4-Star character and the second Pyro character that yields a catalyst weapon. 

If you are among the players lucky enough to get Yanfei right away in the game’s Wish system, here’s everything you need to maximize her strengths. 

Yanfei Character Overview

Genshin Impact Yanfei

Yanfei is a catalyst wielder and a genius when it comes to legal matters. She also has the mixed blood of an illuminated beast making her half-human and probably half-god, similar to Ganyu. When it comes to basic stats, Yanfei would be in between Lisa and Mona. 

Yanfei’s attack is 20, which is slightly lower than the other 5-Star catalyst users. After all, she is a star lower than them, so it is not that big of a deal. 

Yanfei is slightly weaker than usual in terms of defense, with just 49 points in her stats. 

Nonetheless, she makes up for it when it comes to her unique abilities and elemental powers. 

Basic Attacks: Seal of Approval

Yanfei Attack

Normal Attack: Yanfei shoots fireballs at her enemies that deals three Pyro damage. It also generates scarlet seals upon hitting the enemy, which reduces Yanfei’s stamina consumption. She can hold up to 3 seals, and anything further than that just prevents the charges from expiring. 

Normal Attack Yanfei

Charged Attack: releases an AoE Pyro damage that consumes Yanfei’s stamina and all active Scarlet Seals. Having more Scarlet Seals increases her attack range and damage. 

Plunging Attack: Yanfei dives into the enemy and deals AoE Pyro damage to all nearby units. 

Elemental Skill: Signed Edict

Elemental Burst: Done Deal

Yanfei sends a gush of flames after her enemies, dealing AoE Pyro damage that grants three Scarlet Seals. A Done Deal attack also gives Yanfei the brilliance status, which rewards her scarlet seals continuously and increases her charged attack’s damage. 

Yanfei’s Passives

Pyro DPS – TheBest Genshin Impact Yanfei Build

Since Yanfei deals a lot of AoE Pyro damage, we think that the character’s best source of damage is her charged attack. In this build, we will focus on empowering her charged attacks using Elemental reactions. 

Lost Prayer to the Scarlet Wind

This will probably be the best weapon choice for Yanfei if you want to go with a Pyro DPS build. Lost Prayer to the Scarlet Wind will give Yanfei a 10% increase in movement speed and an 8% bonus elemental damage every four seconds when in combat mode. 

The increased elemental damage can also stack up to 4x and last until she falls or leaves combat.
