Yelan is on the same tier as Kazuha in terms of Abyss usage as she is essentially a 5-star Xingqiu. She is scheduled to get her rerun soon in the second half of Version 3.4 and many players are wondering if they should pull on Yelan.

Version 3.4 also fixed a flawed design element in Yelan’s design. While we all know Yelan’s armpit is perfect and iconic, some players had noticed that she was missing fingernails which the Genshin developers finally fixed. In Version 3.4, Yelan’s updated design has proper nails which further enhances her slender fingers. That alone raises Yelan’s pull value but there’s more. Read on to find out.

Yelan’s Value in the Dendro Meta in Genshin Impact 3.4

Yelan is a 5-star Xingqiu- but they are not exactly the same. Yelan doesn’t offer damage mitigation or healing as Xingqiu’s Rain Swords but she does offer unmatched mobility in the overworld- and even on the battlefield. 

Her E skill allows you to virtually stop time in a sense and tie in multiple enemies and bring them closer. In terms of exploration, her E skill allows you unlimited sprinting. In her E skill state, Yelan can travel long distances like Sayu but unlike Sayu, she also recovers stamina while she’s in this state. That means once the duration of her E skill runs out and you return to your base state, you’re ready to sprint again. She’s also a tall woman which means she will cover longer distances with her E skill and sprint, unlike Sayu. 

As for her role in the Dendro meta, she’s a reliable and powerful Hydro driver and can be used in multiple Bloom-based team comps. That said, since she doesn’t come with damage reduction and healing abilities, she will definitely need a reliable healer or shielder in her party to keep her protected. 

While her Hydro application is a tad less than Xingqiu, she applies Hydro just as fast as him which means she’s just as valuable for Hydro-based reactions. She’s also easier to get than a C6 Xingqiu- if you don’t already have that. Yelan in her base form competes with a C6 Xingqiu and she’s also easier to build than Xingqiu.
Overall, Yelan is definitely still worth it- especially if you need a powerful Hydro sub-DPS flex slot. Yelan and Xingqiu, though similar, also have amazing synergy together. Since they both do almost the same thing, having two of them in your party only multiplies your damage further. With Hu Tao’s rerun also coming up alongside Yelan in Version 3.4, if you have the primogems to spare, then between the Staff of Homa, Yelan and C1 Hu Tao- Yelan is still the best pick.

As an English Masters graduate, I always dreamt of becoming a writer as a profession. Alas! I was led astray by anime and gaming. I enjoy open-world RPGs that encourage exploration with easy but flashy combat along the way. Art and aesthetics also matter immensely to me so even in games my characters tend to stare off into space. If I’m not gaming or watching anime I’m probably just asleep and dreaming.
