You can use Aqua Simulacra as it is one of the best choices for Yelan. The Aqua Simulacra is a bow that has critical damage as a secondary stat.

Genshin Impact Yelan Guide: Elemental Skill

Lingering Lifeline is Yelan’s elemental skill. In this, she fires a lifeline that will allow her to move very quickly and mark enemies along her path. The lifeline will deal hydro damage to all the marked enemies as it will explode when the movement stops. It will also give her a 34% chance to reset her breakthrough state.

Enter breakthrough

After spending five seconds out of combat, Yelan will enter a “Breakthrough” state, in which her next Charged Aim Shot will have 80% less charge time, and once charged, Yelan will be able to fire a “Breakthrough Barb”. This will deal Hydro damage based on Yelan’s maximum health.

Special dish for Yelan

Dew-Dipped Shrimp is Yelan’s special dish. With this food, there will be an increase in all part members’ shield strength by 20-30% for 300 seconds.

Use her as a Sub-DPS

The main role of Yelan is to act as a Sub-DPS because she has a very powerful kit that revolves around that role. Yelan’s damage scale uses her HP% instead of ATK%, so it is better to use HP% Sands. As well as HP% Sands, she will also use a Crit Rate / Damage Circlet and a Hydro damage Bonus Goblet.

Use her C6

Yelan’s C6, Winner Takes All, is really strong. After using the elemental burst, Yelan will reach the mastermind state. In this state, all of her normal attacks will transform into special breakthrough barbs, which will have powers comparable to the usual ones. They will inflict damage with a charged attack. It will deal 156 percent of the regular damage of a breakthrough barb. This condition will endure for 20 seconds and will end after Yelan fires five arrows.

Best artifact for Yelan

Yelan has access to a number of powerful artifact sets that can boost her damage output significantly. The Emblem of Severed Fate, which can substantially improve her Burst Damage and is her major source of damage, should be her Best-in-Slot artifact.
