The video opens with Yanfei talking, giving herself a brief introduction as Liyue's Top Legal Expert, fully versed in every aspect of the law.

While not dressed like a lawyer, she assures viewers that without a doubt, no one else comes close to her abilities.

Speaking of abilities, Yanfei's Character Demo finishes with her showing off her normal fireball attack, being a Pyro Catalyst, along with her charged attack that deals AoE Pyro damage to opponents.

Yanfei's Elemental Skill, Signed Edict, and Elemental Burst, Done Deal, are also showcased.

Signed Edict appears as a giant legal seal, stamping enemies and dealing AoE Pyro damage while also granting Yanfei a max amount of Scarlet Seals.

Done Deal sprays foes with flames, dealing AoE Pyro damage while also granting Yanfei a max number of Scarlet Seals and the Brilliance buff.

Scarlet Seals and Brilliance

Yanfei's Elemental skills grant her Scarlet Seals and Brilliance, two new buffs specific to her character.

Scarlet Seals decrease Yanfei's stamina consumption and are earned by using her basic attack, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Burst in battle.

Any currently held seals are lost when Yanfei is switched out for another character.

Brilliance is a buff that gives Yanfei a Scarlet Seal every few seconds, while also increasing her Charged Attack.

The buff lasts until Yanfei is switched out for another character or dies.

Yanfei, similar to Qiqi, is very knowledgeable about the region surrounding Liyue, using her Encyclopedic Knowlege to display resources unique to Liyue on the mini-map.

Yanfei can consume a Scarlet Seal with her Charged Attack to gain a Pyro DMG bonus of 5% for six seconds, thanks to her Proviso passive talent.

With a keen Blazing Eye, Yanfei deals additional AoE Pyro damage equal to 80% of her attack when she deals a critical hit.
