One of the biggest highlights of the information revealed about the 1.5 patch has been Yanfei. It seems like miHoYo is finally focused on releasing four-star characters now. Owing to the gacha system, a majority of players cannot unlock all of their favorite characters in Genshin Impact. As a result, four-star characters are very important for their progress, and also help in sustaining their interest.

We witnessed the four-star Cryo character named Rosaria in the 1.4 update, and Yanfei will continue this trend with the upcoming patch.

Yanfei’s combat skills

Just like any other character, Yanfei’s combat skills stretch across her Normal/Charged Attack, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Burst:

The best way to utilize this attack is by charging it. It consumes stamina, and after a short period, uses all Scarlet Seals to deal AoE Pyro damage in the area in front of Yanfei.

Yanfei’s Elemental Skill spawns several burning flames that deal AoE Pyro damage. In addition to that, this attack grants a maximum number of Scarlet Seals to her when it hits an enemy.

Similar to the Elemental Skill, Yanfei’s Elemental Burst triggers a huge spray of nerve-wracking flames that chase the nearby opponents. They deal AoE Pyro damage, give a maximum number of Scarlet Seals, and apply Brilliance.

It is worth noting that Brilliance increases the damage of Yanfei’s Charged Attacks. The effect stops when she leaves the field or dies.
