6 Varunada Lazurite Chunk, 20 Runic Fang, 60 Starconch, 24 Lieutenant's Gemstone, 120k Mora

Here's what you'll need to level up Yelan. If you want that broken down, it translates to:

  • 25 Varunada Lazurite
  • 168 Starconch
  • 18 Recruit's Insignia, 30 Sergeant's Insignia, 36 Lieutenant's Insignia
  • 46 Relic Fang
  • 420,000 Mora

You'll also need 421 Hero's Wit for the required experience, so plan on farming plenty of Blossoms of Revelation. Make sure to take advantage of any Ley Line Overflow events as well.

Yelan Talent materials

Talent Level
3 Teachings of Prosperity, 6 Recruit's Insignia, 12.5k Mora
2 Guide of Prosperity, 3 Sergeant's Insignia, 17.5k Mora
4 Guide of Prosperity, 4 Sergeant's Insignia, 25k Mora
6 Guide of Prosperity, 6 Sergeant's Insignia, 30k Mora
9 Guide of Prosperity, 9 Sergeant's Insignia, 37.5k Mora
4 Philosophies of Prosperity, 4 Lieutenant's Insignia, 1 Gilded Scale, 120k Mora
6 Philosophies of Prosperity, 6 Lieutenant's Insignia, 1 Gilded Scale, 260k Mora
12 Philosophies of Prosperity, 9 Lieutenant's Insignia, 2 Gilded Scale, 450k Mora
16 Philosophies of Prosperity, 12 Lieutenant's Insignia, 2 Gilded Scale, 1 Crown of Insight, 700k Mora

Here's what you'll need for Yelan's talents if you want to upgrade them to level 10. As always, we don't recommend investing in every talent, though. Aside from the rarity of Crowns of Insight, you're better off tailoring your material spend on a build that suits your playstyle.

Where to farm Yelan materials

  • Varunada Lazurite

This comes from the Oceanid in Liyue and the Hydro Hypostasis in Inazuma. These bosses rely on water illusions and wide-reaching Hydro attacks, so go in with at least one character able to generate shields. Electro and Cryo are ideal elements for taking on the challenges.

  • Insignia Items

These drop from Fatui agents, scattered across the three regions in no small number. Check out the Genshin Impact interactive map for specific locations.

  • Runic Fang

The Ruin Serpent boss in The Chasm drops these. Plan on fighting it frequently if you want to level Yelan up completely.

  • Starconch

These Liyue specialties are only found on the half circle of coast south of Dragonspine and running around the eastern edge of Guili Plains, ending in Guyun Stone Forest.

  • Prosperity Items

The Prosperity-series books only come from Taishan Mansion in Liyue on Monday, Thursday, and Sunday. Consider using Condensed Resin to get more rewards each run.

  • Crown of Insight

These are incredibly rare. You can get a few from enhancing the trees in Dragonspine and the Grand Narukami Shrine, but the most reliable way is participating in events - assuming they list Crown of Insight as a reward.

  • Mora

Mora is rewarded for any number of tasks, but if you want to farm it in greater quantities, complete the Leyline of Wealth challenges (the gold bubbles on the map) and use Condensed Resin to increase how much you earn each go.
