Yelan is the newest character of Genshin Impact 2.7. She was released alongside her signature bow, the Aqua Simulacra. However, the bow is gacha only and it is pretty unlikely that F2P players would have enough resources to pull the weapon banner for it.

Therefore, most players would have to settle for a 4 star bow instead. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the 5 best 4-Star bows for Yelan in Genshin Impact 2.7.

1. Favonius Warbow

The Favonius Warbow is something all players get for free in Genshin Impact upon completing the Mondstadt Archon Quest. It is a pure support bow, and chances are that players already have the Favonius Warbow leveled up for their Venti or Fischl.

Both its skill and secondary stat regenerate Energy, allowing Yelan to use her Burst as soon as it is off cooldown. However, other than that, the bow does not help Yelan much, especially in the damage department. With it, she would more or less be a Hydro applicator only.

2. Sacrificial Bow

Another popular support bow that focuses on both the characters' elemental skill and burst. While it has the same secondary stat as the Favonius Warbow, its skill gives players a chance to refresh the cooldown of the character's elemental skill immediately upon use.

The ability to spam her skill is somewhat useful for Yelan, as it allows her to trigger the Breakthrough state again. With the popularity of this bow, it is likely that players already have it leveled up for other characters.

3. The Stringless

As Yelan's main focus is her Elemental Burst, players can use the Stringless to maximize its power. While it does not deal as much damage as the other bows on this list, the secondary elemental mastery stat allows players to combo better in vaporize teams.

Another advantage for The Stringless is that it's easier to R5, as it is available on banners where it's not featured.

4. Alley Hunter

The Alley Hunter bow is currently unavailable in the Epitome Invocation Wish Weapon Banner, as it is an event-wish exclusive weapon. It is probably one of the best 4-star bows for off-field Sub DPS Yelan, with the ability to increase the damage of her Burst by 20% while staying off-field.

Its secondary stat is ATK %, which is moderately useful. The drawback of not staying longer than 4s on the field can be bypassed pretty easily.

5. Fading Twilight

The Fading Twilight is pretty much designed as a f2p option for Yelan users. It boosts the user's Energy Recharge by 30.6% and will be very easy to R5 if the player participates in its event. The bow has three states, Evengleam, Afterglow, and Dawnblaze, which increase DMG dealt by 6%/10%/14%~12%/20%/28% respectively.

To change between states, players only need to damage the enemy once every 7 seconds. This means the buff reaches its peak after 14s, which is perfect for Yelan's Elemental Burst which has a duration of 15. This can also trigger when the character is off-field.
