The Chinese Private Beta Test for Genshin Impact ver 1.5 has started, and one or more players have already leaked some content, most notably regarding new characters Eula and Yanfei (previously known as Feiyan), with Skills, Talent, and Constellation info. We detailed everything below, courtesy of Honey Impact, alongside our own observations and comments.

Genshin Impact 1.5 Leaks – Yanfei Normal Attack, Elemental Skill, Elemental Burst explained

Right now, Yanfei is a four star, Pyro Vision and Catalyst user from Liyue.

Yanfei’s Normal Attack / auto is Seal of Approval

With her normal / Auto attack, Yanfei shoots fireballs that deal up to three counts of Pyro DMG. When Yanfei’s Normal Attacks hit enemies, they will grant her a single Scarlet Seal. Yanfei may hold a maximum of three Scarlet Seals simultaneously. Each time the effect is triggered, the duration of currently-possessed Scarlet Seals will refresh. Scarlet Seals will also decrease Yanfei’s Stamina consumption. Lastly, the Scarlet Seals disappear when Yanfei leaves the field.

Charged Attack: Yanfei consumes Stamina and all her Scarlet Seals to deal AoE Pyro DMG to opponents, after a short casting time. The AoE and DMG scales with the amount of Scarlet Seals consumed.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Plunging Attack: Yanfei turns into a ball of Elemental Energy and deals AoE Pyro DMG on impact.

Overall, it looks like Yanfei’s auto has a very similar gameplay scheme as Ningguang.

The Elemental Skill / E that Yanfei uses is Signed Edict.

Pressing the E button: Summons blistering flames that deal AoE Pyro DMG. The enemies hit by the flames will grant Yanfei the maximum number of Scarlet Seals.

Holding the E button: It looks like Yanfei’s Elemental Skill only has a tap version, and no hold version. Again, this would be just like Ningguang.

  • MORE LEAKS – Skills, Talent, Constellations for 5 star Cryo and Claymore character Eula.

The Elemental Burst Yanfei uses is Done Deal.

Yanfei triggers a spray of intense flames rushing at nearby enemies, dealing Pyro DMG, granting Yanfei the max amount of Scarlet Seals, and applying to her the Brilliance status. Brilliance grants Yanfei a Scarlet Seal at fixed inervals and increases the DMG of her Charged Attacks. Brilliance has a limited duration, but will also end if Yanfei dies or is switched with another character.

Yanfei’s Passive Talents

Encyclopedic Expertise: Displays the location of nearby resources unique to Liyue on the mini-map.

Proviso: When Yanfei consumes Scarlet Seals with a Charged Attack, each Scarlet Seal consumed will increase her Pyro DMG by 5% for 6s. This does not stack, and if the effect is triggered again within the 6s, it will overwrite the previous one.

Xiezhi’s Eye: When Yanfei Charged Attacks deal CRIT hits, the Charged Attack will have an AoE Pyro DMG effect equal to 80% of her ATK. This DMG counts as Charged Attack DMG.

Yanfei’s Constellations

The Law Knows No Kindness / C1: When Yanfei uses her Charged Attack, each existing Scarlet Seal additionally reduces the Stamina cost of this Charged Attack by 10%, and increases her interruption resistance when casting the Charged Attack.

Right of Final Interpretation / C2: Increases Yanfei’s Charged Attack CRIT Rate by 20% against enemies below 50% HP.

Samadhi Fire-Forged / C3: Increases the level of Signed Edict by 3. Max level is 15.

Supreme Amnesty / C4: When Done Deal is triggered: Creates a shield that absorbs up to 75% of Yanfei’s Max HP for 15s. This shield absorbs Pyro DMG 250% more efficiently.

Legal Cheat Sheet / C5: Increases the level of Done Deal by 3. Max level is 15.

Extra Clause / C6: Increase the max number of Scarlet Seals by 1.

  • MORE LEAKS – What we know of the Housing system from the 1.5 leaks

Genshin 1.5 Leaks – Seeing her Skills and Talent, Can Yanfei turn into a DPS character?

That’s all concerning the Elemental Skills, Talent, Constellations of Yanfei from the Genshin 1.5 leaks. Yanfei as a 4 star character, is definitely weaker than Eula, however this also means she will be easier to obtain. Moreover, similarly with Ningguang, Yanfei should become an incredibly powerful Pyro DPS if used and built well.

Keep in mind this is all leaked info from the Private Closed Beta Test of 1.5, and it’s all content that was not supposed to be publicly revealed. Moreover. this is also content subject to change. For example,  it’s possible Yanfei could have different stats when releasing. None of this is final.

Lastly, while Eula and Yanfei are included in the 1.5 Beta, it doesn’t necessarily mean they will be available in the official version of 1.5. BE sure to keep that in mind.

Genshin Impact is available on PC, PS4, PS5 via backward compatibility, and Mobile. The game was also announced on Switch, but has no release date yet.
