After a three-week delay, the game has finally introduced the long-awaited Genshin Impact the 2.7 update which already brought a brand new character named Yelan. The new Hydro arc user has quickly become a fan favorite, which was proven by a recent post on the popular Genshin Impact subreddit which revealed that she had already broken the record for most drawn character on day one of release. It should be noted that players had an additional three weeks to save more Primogems for his arrival.

This is probably the main reason for this record given that the recent Genshin Impact The news has revealed that Kamisato Ayaka, who was the former limited banner character, also managed to break the overall banner income record because his banner duration was extended. Several replies in the comments section claim that there is a slight inaccuracy in the graphic given that Yelan is the only character shown, even though she is paired with popular Anemo user Xiao on a double banner. For example, the previous two replays featuring Ayato/Venti and Raiden Shogun/Kokomi show both characters on the banner income chart.


Yelan is a mysterious Genshin Impact characters who works for the Ministry of Civil Affairs. Even though the majority of the community was far from impressed after her initial reveal, Yelan has already proven to be one of the strongest characters in Genshin Impact. Prior to her release, Yelan was considered a slightly stronger version of four-star character Xingqui due to the similarities between their kits.

His unique skills allow him to fill multiple roles within a team composition. Although she has the potential to deal tons of damage, Yelan is probably the best suited for the sub-DPS role since. His elemental explosion, Depth-Clarion Dice, has the ability to provide a constant Hydro application which is crucial for combining various elemental reactions. Yelan won’t be the only new character arriving in the update as the official livestream event has already confirmed a four-star character named Kuki Shinobu for the second banner cycle.


Genshin Impact is now available on Mobile, PC, PS4 and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
