Genshin Impact Yanfei build path – Weapons, Artifacts, teams

Fiery in court, and on the battlefield

As it turns out, Liyue’s most famous legal advisor is also a great fighter – with the right build that is. Here’s how to build Yanfei in Genshin Impact.

Here are some of the artifact sets that you can use with Yanfei:

Yanfei has quite a few possible artifact sets she can use, but let’s focus on Crimson Witch for the optimal DPS prowess. Crimson Witch of Flames’ two-piece bonus grants you a 15% boost to your Pyro damage. The four-piece bonus on the other hand boosts your Overload and Burning damage by 40%. If that wasn’t enough, it also increases Vaporize and Melt damage by 15%. On top of all of that, using an Elemental Skill increases the two-piece bonus by 50% of its initial value for 10 seconds – stacking up to three times.

Alternatively, you have Wanderer’s Troupe. Wanderer’s two-piece bonus will pump up your Elemental Mastery by 80 if you choose that set, with the four-piece bonus buffing your charged attack damage by 35% since you’re using a Catalyst.

Crimson Witch of Flames pieces are obtained from the Hidden Palace of Zhou Formula Domain. Wanderer’s Troupe is dropped by all Weekly Bosses (World Level three), all Normal Bosses (World Level five), Tier I Domain Reliquaries, and the Artifact Strongbox.

The following artifact sets have the 2-piece bonus that gives you the +18% ATK bonus you may be looking for:

  • Gladiator’s Finale
  • Shimenawa’s Reminiscence
  • Pale Flame
  • Vermillion Hereafter
  • Echoes of an Offering

Stats and weapons

For your main stats, you’ll be aiming for ATK% or Elemental Mastery on your Sands, Pyro DMG on your Goblet, and Crit Rate or DMG on your Circlet. As for your sub-stats, you’re looking for Crit Rate / DMG, ATK%, Energy Recharge, Elemental Mastery or just flat ATK

Yanfei is surprisingly interested in the more pricey Catalysts, but don’t worry too much as she can still use some 4-Star weapons if needed.

  • Skyward Atlas (5✩)
  • Memory of Dust (5✩)
  • Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds (5✩)
  • Kagura’s Verity (5✩)
  • The Widsith (4✩)
  • Dodoco Tales (4✩) – (Refinement five)
  • Solar Pearl (4✩)

Who she’s teaming up with

Yanfei is pretty flexible with who she can fight alongside, but let’s go through some possible team comps. For a Vaporize team, you’re looking at pairing her up with Xingqiu, Kazuha, and Zhongli, but you can also swap Kazuha with Venti or Albedo if you prefer. For a melt team, team Yanfei up with Ganyu – the other half-Adeptus – as well as Kazuha and Diona. You can also swap Ganyu and Kazuha with Ayaka and Sucrose if you prefer (or if that’s all you have, no judgment). Finally, for the pyromaniacs out there – feel free to make a team comprised of Yanfei, Xiangling, Kazuha, and Bennett. Kazuha is there to spread the flames of course,

You’ve got all you need from me and now it’s time for you to start building your Yanfei! Be sure to farm her up properly first though, otherwise, you’ll fight with a match as opposed to a flamethrower.
