Normal Attack: Stealthy Bowshot

  • Normal Attack: Performs up to 4 consecutive shots with a bow.

  • Breakthrough State: Yelan will enter a "Breakthrough" state after spending 5s out of combat, which will cause her next Charged Aimed Shot to have 80% decreased charge time, and once charged, she can fire a "Breakthrough Barb" that will deal AoE Hydro DMG based on her Max HP.
  • Plunging Attack: Fires off a shower of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE DMG upon impact

Fires off a Lifeline that tractors her in rapidly, entangling and marking opponents along its path. When her rapid movement ends, the Lifeline will explode, dealing Hydro DMG to the marked opponents based on Yelan's Max HP.

  • Tap mode: Moves a certain distance forward swiftly.
  • Hold mode:  Engages in continuous, swift movement. During this time, Yelan can control her sprint direction and can end this quick movement by using this Skill again. Additionally, each opponent marked by the Lifeline when it explodes grants Yelan a 34% chance to reset her Breakthrough state.

Elemental Burst: Exquisite Throw

Deals AoE Hydro DMG and creates an "Exquisite Throw," which aids her in battle.
