Yanqing Guide


Yanqing is a great early starting unit, as he has in-built crit DMG and crit rate integrated in his kit. The only stats you need to focus on is ATK, SPD, and Crit Damage for relic substats. Although his buff may be hard to maintain, especially in content where there are AoE capable enemies, which immediately gimps his damage by a good amount.

  • E1 removes frozen from target if frozen in exchange for 100% attack ice damage.
  • E2 Additional regen when Empathic sword link is active.
  • E4 Extra ice penetration.
  • E6 Buff duration is increased by 1 turn when an enemy is defeated.
