Genshin Impact update 1.5 is on the horizon, but so too is the game’s launch on PS5 for which eight minutes of 4k and 60FPS gameplay have been shared. However, in addition to its PS5 launch, the release date for the Yanfei banner is also quickly approaching. Here you’ll find the release date and skills for Yanfei and her banner in Genshin Impact.
Aside from the upcoming new heroine, it is also confirmed that the previously leaked Eula is coming out in update 1.5. This was confirmed during the special program that miHoYo always livestream.
While there’s plenty to be excited about in regard to the upcoming new version of the game, below you’ll find the release date and skills for the Yanfei banner in Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact Yanfei banner release date
The release date for the Yanfei banner in Genshin Impact should be April 28th.
Yanfei will not have her own banner in Genshin Impact as she’s a four stars heroine similar to Rosaria, but she will be part of the Zhongli rerun.
And, although no dates have been confirmed for the spotlights in the new version, the Zhongli rerun is positioned before Eula meaning it should come out on April 28th when version 1.5 begins.
While the Zhongli accompanying heroine is only four stars, know that Eula is a five stars protagonist.
Both of these newly arriving heroines were leaked all the way back in March shortly after the start of version 1.4.
And, in the build-up to the presumed April 28th release date, miHoYo have shared an overview of the character that explores her backstory, favourite food, and hobbies.
Genshin Impact Yanfei skills and abilities
The skills and abilities for Yanfei in Genshin Impact say that she is a Catalyst wielder and Pyro character.
These skills and abilities also say that Yanfei is a well-known legal adviser in Liyue of Genshin Impact, as well as part Illuminated Beast.
All of the below comes courtesy of miHoYo’s character overview as well as Honey Hunter World:
Her normal attack shoots fireballs that deal up to three counts of Pyro DMG, and hitting enemies will reward Yanfei with a single Scarlet Seal.
Yanfei’s charged attack consumes stamina and all of her Scarlet Seals before dealing AoE Pyro DMG to opponents.
She also has a plunging attack which deals AoE Pryo DMG upon impact with the ground after falling from mid-air.
Her elemental skill is Signed Edict, and this summons blistering flames that deal AoE Pyro DMG. Opponents hit by the flames will also reward her with the maximum number of Scarlet Seals.
Following on from her elemental skill, her elemental burst is referred to as Done Deal. This triggers a spray of intense flames that rush at nearby opponents, and this deals AoE DMG while also giving the maximum number of Scarlet Seals and applying Brilliance to Yanfei.
