FAQs about Genshin Impact Yanfei

Yes. Many of Yanfei’s Constellations increase the power and utility of her Scarlet Seals.

If you’re committed to building Yanfei as your DPS main, it’s well worth getting her Constellations all the way up to Level 6, so you can benefit from an increased cap on this useful stamina bonus.

No details on Yanfei’s age are shown in the game.

But it’s confirmed that Yanfei’s birthday is July 28th, on which day you’ll get a gift from miHoYo.

Yanfei is a DPS that can inflict Pyro easily making her able to deal with constant Elemental Reaction. This team maximizes and supports the damage from those Reactions.

No. Yanfei is a four-star Genshin Impact character who wields a catalyst and harnesses the power of pyro. We first got to hear about her and Eula during the Genshin Impact update 1.5 special programme on April 16, 2021.

Inventive players have discovered that Yanfei can succeed as support instead.

The new character – Yanfei supports the build and relies on her fourth constellation upgrade. Supreme Amnesty creates a shield equal to 45% of Yanfei’s max HP whenever she uses her elemental burst.

Not really. Generally speaking, most catalyst users in Genshin Impact will work well with the Raiden Shogun because their normal attacks apply for elemental status.

However, some catalysts work better than others based on their skills. For example, Yanfei can be an economical choice.

The best team to work with Yanfei includes Zhongli, Xinqiu, and Bennett.
