Go For CR/CD Weapons

As a main DPS, it's important to build CR/CD before anything else. Having a CR/CD weapon will make it easier for you and will make Artifact building less restricting. If you don't have a CR/CD weapon, an ATK% weapon will do.

For Yanfei Fans:
Don't be offended she's C, she can do charge attack per 2 secs with 48k damage to area,
While Neuvillette do 65k per 0.5s in a huge area..

It's not yanfei is bad, It's just at her max C6, it's her ceiling and other limited banner DPS dmg just too huge even at C0

I would say, she's A tier dps character. Team her with xingqui and layla and it's reaction galore. She can be built with lower investment as you can leave her skill and burst until lvl 6 only and she's still good normal + charged attack dps that can trigger reactions.

The guy beneath me: I FUCKING LOVE U, thought i was the only 1 that thought like that

The Eye of Perception is a good option for her.
