- 66 Sergeant'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.

Varunada Lazurite is dropped by the following Normal Bosses:

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
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.
