▲You can check if the special charge attack is active by looking at the ring.

While not in combat for 5 seconds or after using her Elemental Skill on opponents (RNG Based), the ring on Yelan's wrist will glow. This signifies that the special Charge attack that deals AoE damage that scales HP of Yelan and has 80% faster charge time can be released.

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.

Anonymous 9

Seriously, so some research and maths, and stop advertising flat stats as the way to go.
ANY flat stat is beyond trash and usuless, I rather have DEF% than ur trash flat HP.
Seriously, two google research on the maths formula of artifacts stats and you understand how bad they are...

Ouh a fangirl (or boy) is ****ed because her/his favorite character isn't scored as SS.
Go cry more in the corner.

Tier lists like this is nothing. Ultimately you go with whichever char you enjoy the most. Period.

I’m wondering about the comparison to Ayato as well. I have him, so not sure if I should pull for Yelan or wait for Kazhua.
