Yelan is confirmed to rerun in Genshin Impact's 4.0 update, so some Travelers may wish to pre-farm her Ascension Materials.

As we know, Yelan is a very very very powerful support or Main DPS character (C6), so if you want her, let's prepare her ascension materials in advance.

Yelan requires a multitude of Ascension Materials that are already available for players to farm. The only major obstacle for players is the Runic Fangs drop, which requires them to complete the quest, Surreptitious Seven-Star Seal Sundering to access. Aside from that, everything else is pretty simple to obtain.

Yelan will need the following Ascension Materials to reach her max level in Genshin Impact:

  • 1 Varunada Lazurite Sliver
  • 9 Varunada Lazurite Fragments
  • 9 Varunada Lazurite Chunks
  • 6 Varunada Lazurite Gemstones
  • 168 Starconches
  • 46 Runic Fangs
  • 18 Recruit's Insignia
  • 30 Sergeant's Insignia
  • 36 Lieutenant's Insignia
  • 420K Mora

Naturally, some Travelers will likely want to know how to farm these Ascension Materials, which is the purpose of the next section.

These gemstones are obtainable by slaying Hydro Bosses. Travelers will have to defeat any of the following bosses:

  • Hydro Hypostasis
  • Oceanid
  • Primo Geovishap

Some Weekly Bosses also drop Varunada Lazurite:

  • Azhdaha
  • Childe
  • Stormterror

Weekly Bosses can only drop the Varunada Lazurite once a week, whereas other Normal Bosses are farmable every five minutes.

How to obtain Starconch

There are 77 Starconches for Genshin Impact players to collect on the eastern coast of Liyue.

A Starconch are considered a Local Specialty, which means that Travelers have to wait 48 hours for it to respawn. Alternatively, they can buy five of them from Bolai every three days. Bolai is located at the east of the northern Teleport Waypoint. Keep in mind that he is in the lower section of Liyue Harbor.

Runic Fangs are only obtainable by slaying the Ruin Serpent. Genshin Impact players must complete Surreptitious Seven-Star Seal Sundering and its prerequisites in order to fight this boss.

It is highly recommended that players raise their Lumenstone Adjuvant's level as high as possible to make the fight easier.

How to farm Recruit's Insignia, Sergeant's Insignia, & Lieutenant's Insignia

The final Ascension Materials to farm for Yelan in Genshin Impact are the three Fatui Insignias. Travelers just need to defeat the following to obtain these items:

  • Fatui Pyro Agents
  • Fatui Cicin Mages
  • Fatui Skirmishers

It's worth mentioning that these items are also required for leveling up Yelan's Talents.

The previous section covered Yelan's Ascension Materials, so this one will cover her Talent Level-Up Materials. She needs the following to max out all three Talents:

  • 18 Recruit's Insignias
  • 66 Sergeant's Insignias
  • 93 Lieutenant's Insignias
  • 9 Teachings of Prosperity
  • 63 Guides to Prosperity
  • 114 Philosophies of Prosperity
  • 18 Gilded Scales
  • 3 Crowns of Insight
  • 4,957,500 Mora

Crowns of Insight are only available via specific events. The three Insignias were covered in the previous section, so this part of the article will begin with the Prosperity books.

Genshin Impact players can get the Prosperity materials by farming the Taishan Mansion Domain in Liyue, but only on Monday, Thursday or Sunday.

There is a small puzzle involving Geograna and three lanterns here if the player hasn't unlocked it yet.

How to obtain Gilded Scale

Level 70+ Azhdahas can drop Gilded Scales. However, Genshin Impact players must complete Zhongli's second Story Quest to access this Weekly Boss.

If players don't get Gilded Scales but have Azhdaha's other drops, they can craft a Gilded Scale by using those drops plus a Dream Solvent.
