It has been confirmed that Yelan and Kuki Shinobu are going to be part of Genshin Impact 2.7. Yelan will be part of the first banner while Shinobu is going to debut in the second. With both characters having great design and abilities, the hype for them has been growing steadily.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to reveal the Ascension Materials for Kuki Shinobu and Yelan. This way, players would be able to pre-farm them before 2.7 hits.

All variants of Vajrada Amethyst are naturally dropped by Electro boss enemies such as Thunder Manifestation and Electro Hypostases. Spectral items, on the other hand, are dropped by the Specter enemies in the open world.

The last required item, Runic Fang, is a new boss drop that can be found in The Chasm in the 2.6 patch. To acquire it, players need to kill the Ruin Serpent boss in the underground mines.

Yelan Ascension materials

To fully ascend Yelan to level 90, players need to collect the following items:

  • 168 Starconch
  • 1 Varunada Lazurite Silver
  • 9 Varunada Lazurite Fragment
  • 9 Varunada Lazurite Chunk
  • 6 Varunada Lazurite Gemstone
  • 18 Recruit's Insignia
  • 30 Sergeant's Insignia
  • 36 Lieutenant's Insignia
  • 46 Runic Fang

Starconch is a local resource in Liyue, which can be found fairly easily on the region's beaches.

All variants of Varunada Lazurite are naturally dropped by Hydro boss enemies such as Rhodeia of Loch (Oceanid) or Hydro Hypostasis. Players can also get them from Primo Geovishap if they infused it with Hydro during battle.

The Insignias can be farmed in the open world by killing Fatui Cicin Mages, Fatui Pyro Agents and Fatui Skirmishers. Just use the Genshin Impact Adventurer Handbook to reveal their locations.

About Kuki Shinobu and Yelan

Kuki Shinobu

Overall, Kuki Shinobu is going to be the first Electro healer in the game. She will likely function as an Electro healer and Electro battery at the same time, funneling Electro particles to another Electro main DPS.

Kuki Shinobu Genshin Impact
Kuki Shinobu is going to carry a whip-like sword.

Her burst summons three shurikens hovering around the character, and every time other characters on the team inflict damage, they would launch and deal damage. Each thrown shuriken must fly back first before the next trigger.


Yelan, on the other hand, is a sub DPS character with skills similar to Xingqiu.

Her burst deals AoE Hydro damage to all targets in the area, then summon an "Exquisite Throw" (similar to Xingqiu's rain swords). This is a special summon that deals additional Hydro DMG that scales off Yelan's Max HP during her Elemental Burst.

Furthermore, Exquisite Throw also deals Hydro DMG when Yelan uses her Elemental skill. Depth-Clarion Dice has a 7o energy cost and 18 seconds cooldown.
