Genshin Impact 2.7 Yelan Farming Guide: All Locations for Ascension & Talent Materials

Yelan the upcoming 5-star character for Genshin Impact 2.7 is a 5-star Hydro Bow user, a mysterious character that seems to be working as a secret agent in Liyue.

Yelan is the second 5-star Hydro character released consecutively, following Ayato from the Ver. 2.6

Here is our guide to farm all ascension materials to level-up Yelan and bring her full potential to the battleground.

Latest – Release Date Delayed

Unfortunately, the Genshin Impact 2.7 update has been postponed indefinitely due to affectations provoked by the COVID lockdown in Shanghai.

Rumors indicate that it will take Hoyoverse around three weeks to be back on track. So, on June 1, 2022, instead of receiving the second phase, Genshin Impact 2.7 will go live.

But not everything is bad news. For those looking forward to Yelan’s arrival, the delay will offer more chances to obtain Primogems.

Around 37 wishes are available from the rest of the events in version 2.6, and the refresh of the Spiral Abyss and Paimon’s Bargain Shop on May 15 and May 30.

Three weeks will also give enough time to collect all the ascension materials, talent items, and artifacts for the new 5-star Hydro Character Yelan.

Yelan Farming Guide

Yelan is a secret agent and a gambler that works for the Ministry of Civil Affairs in Liyue.

Yelan’s identity has always been a mystery. She appears in public under various guises and disappears before someone notices her.

Ascension Materials

These are the ascension materials you’ll need for Yelan:

Runic Fang, character level up material, dropped by the new boss Ruin Serpent, the boss introduced in the ver. 2.6.

Starconch is a local specialty of Liyue, Empty Seashells that players can collect near the shore.

  • Players need 168 Starconch for an Lv. 90 Yelan.
  • There are 71 Starconch in the wild refreshing every 48hrs.
  • Players can buy extra Starconch with NPC Bolai in Liyue Harbor.

Insignias – Common Ascencion dropped by the Fatui Agents: Fatui Skirmishers, Fatui Cicin Mages, and Fatui Pyro Agents.

  • To level up Yelan to Lv. 90 travelers require:
    • 18 Recruit’s Insignia
    • 30 Sergeant’s Insignia
    • 36 Lieutenant’s Insignia

Talent Materials

The Fatui agents are the military force of the Cryo Archon. They are strong elite enemies that harness all the elements.

To level up Yelan’s Talents to the max, players need:

  • 18 Recruit’s Insignia
  • 66 Sergeant’s Insignia
  • 93 Lieutenant’s Insignia

Prosperity Series are talent-level books that players can obtain in the domain Taishan Mansion in Jueyun Karst on Monday, Thursday, and Sunday.

    • 63 Guide to Prosperity

    • Yelan needs 18 of these Scales for max Talents.

Additionally, players need Varunada Lazurite, common crafting material for Hydro Characters, and tons of Mora to level Yelan to the highest level.

Yelan’s Best Weapon and Artifacts

Yelan seems to have a big DMG potential, however considering the very efficient outfield hydro application she provides, she will shine the best as a Sub-DPS.

The Emblem of Severed Fate set will increase a boost to Yelan’s Elemental Burst while getting enough Energy Recharge to have her abilities ready for each rotation.

Another option is a combination of Heart of the Depth and Noblesse Oblige that will increase Yelan Hydro DMG and Elemental Burst.

Artifact Stats: Sands: HP – Goblet: Hydro DMG – Circlet: Crit. Rate or Crit. DMG

Best Weapons

The BIS weapon for Yelan is the 5-star bow Aqua Simulacra, which will be released along with the Yelan banner in Genshin Impact 2.7. This bow puts in some serious work with a high ATK base and Crit. DMG as the secondary stat.

Elegy for the End is another interesting 5-star good option, especially for Yelan as Sub-DPS. This bow will buff the Elemental Mastery and ATK of your entire team.

Similar to Xingqiu the best free-to-play option is the R5 Sacrificial Bow, so Yelan can restart the cooldown of her Elemental Skill and gain particles to get Yelan Elemental Burst ready.
