Best Genshin Impact Yanfei Build Guide: Weapons, Artifacts


Yanfei is a relatively new pyro character that is back on the Ayaka banner. Yanfei is a great DPS character that does impressive area of effect damage and is a great unit to use in the Spiral Abyss. In this Genshin Impact guide, we are going to go over the best build for Yanfei.

Best Build For Yanfei In Genshin Impact

The following are the weapons and artifacts that we recommend for Yanfei in Genshin Impact:


For the weapons, we can recommend Lost Prayer and Skyward Atlas. These are 5-star weapons so you will need to spend Primogems in order to get them. There are a couple of 4-star weapons that you can use as well.

If you played the previous event then you might have Dodoco Tales. This is a very good weapon that boosts Yenfei’s normal and charged attacks. Dodoco Tales is the weapon that I personally use on my Yanfei. If you played the event then you already have the Dodoco Tales and max refinement, which makes this an absolute no-brainer weapon for Yanfei.

If you do not have these weapons then you can do with The Widsith, which has a pretty good base attack and even offers Crit Damage as one of the main stats. The weapon gets much better as you refine it and is worth looking into.

If you are a low spender that buys the battle pass then we can recommend the battle pass Catalyst, Solar Pearl because of the Crit Rate main stat. We only recommend this weapon if you do not have the weapons mentioned above.

If you are free-to-play and do not have the weapons mentioned above then you can go with Appa Mare. This has attack and elemental mastery as the main stats.

Genshin Impact Yanfei Build


If you are going for DPS Yanfei then you should go for the Crimson Witch set. This will give you +15% Pyro Damage on 2 piece set and increased overload and burning damage by 40% and vaporize and melt by 15% when you have 4 pieces. With 4 pieces on you also get a 50% elemental skill increase provided by the 2 piece set. This is very powerful and it is the set that we recommend for Yanfei.

The burst attack of the character requires 80 energy so you will be looking for energy recharge as the substat on her artifacts. You should prioritize Crit Rate, Energy Recharge, and Elemental mastery. Attack percentage is going to be pretty good too.

As for the main stats, we recommend having Pyro Damage on your goblet. You should have Crit Rate on your Circlet. While we do recommend getting energy recharge for the high burst cost that the character has, we do not recommend having energy recharge as the main stat on the sands piece. You should have attack percentage on the sands.

This is the best build that we recommend for Yanfei in Genshin Impact. To learn more about the game you can check out our guide on how you can get Fate Points.
