Weapons That Increase CRIT Stats, Energy Recharge & HP Works Great

For an Off-Field DPS Build, to increase damage it's essential to have weapons that will have either Crit Rate, Crit DMG, or HP% as their main stat. Energy Recharge also works great if you are using 4 Piece Emblem Of Severed Fate which is also great for higher up-time of Elemental Burst.

Lol 4 piece EOSF is the best optimal choice rather than 2 piece tenacity.
You need the ER for her burst plus its additional attack bonus.

Anonymous 13

Optimal build for C1 Yelan is: Stringless Bow with Nobless Oblige (HP%/Hydro%/HP%). You need 60% energy from substats to burst every 18 seconds.

Accidentally my Layla HP build + abandoned Favonius bowR5 will be super very suitable for my future Yelan.
Also i have Tenacity 2set HP with high CDMG unused, become usefull

Replace Flat HP by ER and you're gucci.

Anonymous 10

No one is "advertising" flat stats as the way to go dude, but not everyone can roll perfect stats, which is why those are listed, as substitutes until one can get a better piece to replace it.
