Yelan's Best Artifacts and Weapons
Yelan has massive DMG potential, however considering the very efficient outfield hydro application she provides, Yelan shines best as a Sub-DPS.
The Emblem of Severed Fate set, will increase the DMG output of her Elemental Burst and reduce the Cooldown.
However, Yelan doesn't depend on her ATK to increase her DMG, which allows her to be creative with her artifacts. She scaled with HP, but we still want a healthy balance of Crit. DMG & Crit. Rate (Yelan Ascension stats is Crit. Rate).
These are the Artifact's Stats Recommended:
Sands: HP - Goblet: Hydro DMG - Circlet: Crit. Rate or Crit. DMG
Another option is 2 pieces combinations of Heart of the Depth, Tenacity of the Milelith and Noblesse Oblige that will increase Yelan DMG Output.
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 High Crit. DMG as the secondary stat.
Elegy for the End is another interesting 5-star good option. It is an energy recharge bow that will buff the Elemental Mastery and ATK of your entire team.
The best F2P options are the bows Favonius Warbow and Sacrificial Bow, which will provide enough Energy Particles to keep Yelan's Abilities ready to be spammed.
