Your Definitive Genshin Impact Yanfei Guide

When is the Genshin Impact Yanfei banner?

Genshin Impact Yanfei starts April 28 in conjunction with the Gensin Impact 1.5 release.

She’s part of the Gentry of Hermitage banner featuring the Zhongli rerun, thanks to Yanfei being a four-star character.

Yanfei is a legal expert from Liyue who uses Pyro attacks and has a unique ability that lets her consume less stamina to unleash charged moves.

Since she wields a catalyst weapon, that means you can launch more charged attacks before having to break off and wait.

Jump To

Yanfei requires most of the usual Pyro-related Ascension materials, with one exception that’s tied to the new Genshin Impact 1.5 boss Azhdaha.

Genshin Impact Yanfei Banner Date

The Yanfei banner, Gentry of Hermitage, begins April 28 when Genshin Impact 1.5 releases.

It will likely run three weeks, as usual.

Yanfei is a four-star character, and she’ll have a boosted drop rate during the banner.

That means you should have a good chance of obtaining Yanfei at least once since she’s a four-star character.

Genshin’s pity system means you can a four-star character or weapon for every nine pulls where you don’t get one.

Yanfei’s Scarlet Seals

Yanfei’s normal attack generates a Scarlet Seal every time it lands, for a maximum of three.

Scarlet Seals decrease the amount of stamina Yanfei uses.

Yanfei Elemental Skill

  • Signed Edict — Summons blistering flames that deal AoE Pyro damage to nearby enemies. Enemies hit by the flames grants Yanfei the maximum number of Scarlet Seals.

Yanfei Elemental Burst

  • Done Deal — Deals AoE Pyro damage, grants the maximum number of Scarlet Seals, and applies Brilliance to Yanfei.

Brilliance does the following:

  • Adds a new Scarlet Seal at fixed intervals
  • Increases charged attack damage

Yanfei Constellations

  • The Law Knows No Kindness — When Yanfei uses her charged attack, each Scarlet Seal reduces an additional 10% stamina cost for the charged attack, and increases resistance against interruption during its release.
  • Right of Final Interpretation — Increases Yanfei’s charged critical hit rate by 20% against foes with health under 50%.
  • Samadhi Fire-Forged — Increases level of Signed Edict by three, with a maximum of 15.
  • Supreme Amnesty — When Done Deal is used, it creates a shield that absorbs up to 45% of her HP for 15 seconds. It absorbs Pyro damage 250% more effectively.
  • Abiding Affidavit — Increases level of Done Deal by three, with a maximum of 15
  • Extra Clause: Increases the maximum number of Scarlet Seals Yanfei can carry by one.
