Genshin Impact Yelan Banner 4 Stars characters

Yelan’s Banner has three 4-Star characters with boosted drop rates:

  • Barbara (Hydro)
  • Noelle (Geo)
  • Yanfei (Pyro)

While these aren’t the most sought-after 4-Star characters in Genshin Impact, they have been in the game for quite some time. Those who regularly Wish on Banners should already have them, which means if you do receive one of these 4-Stars from Yelan’s Banner, Discerner of Enigmas, you will receive Masterless Starglitter.

Barbara, Noelle, and Yanfei are boosted in Yelan's current Banner.

One Intertwined Fate can be purchased for x5 Masterless Starglitter, which can then be used to Wish on a Yelan's Banner.

You get x2 Masterless Starglitter for pulling a 4-Star character you already have, and if that character’s Constellation level is fully upgraded, you get x5 Masterless Starglitter. This means you have a higher chance of getting discounted (or free) Wishes for Yelan if you do have all of the 4-star characters featured in her Banner.

Yelan isn't the only 5-Star you can get from the Discerner of Enigmas Banner. However, With the 50/50 system in place, if you don't pull Yelan the first time you successfully Wish for a 5-Star item, you are guaranteed to get her the second time you pull a 5-Star item.

There's also the Pity and Soft Pity systems, so you are more likely to get Yelan after your 75th Wish, and are guaranteed a 5-Star item at 90 Wishes, if you haven't already got one. In the very worst case scenario, you will get Yelan after your 180th Wish, but these are very unlikely odds.

Yelan's Banner in the 2.7 update version.

These Pity and 50/50 systems are shared with Xiao's Banner, so if you have pulled a 5-Star weapon, or character other than Yelan or Xiao from either Banner, you can guarantee Yelan will be your next 5-Star pull when Wishing on Discerner of Enigmas.

4-Star Characters on Yelan's Banner are easier to get. Yelan is only guaranteed after 180 Wishes, whereas a featured 4-Star character is guaranteed after 20 Wishes. The featured 4-Star characters have their own 50/50 system, so if you don't pull Barbara, Noelle, or Yanfei the first time you pull a 4-Star weapon or character, one of them will be guaranteed the next time you successfully Wish for a 4-Star item.

Here’s every character and their base drop rates in Yelan’s Banner, Discerner of Enigmas:

  • Yelan (5-Star Hydro): 0.6%
  • Diluc (5-Star Pyro): 0.6%
  • Jean (5-Star Anemo): 0.6%

Yelan Banner end date

The current Yelan Banner releases on Tuesday, 31st May 2022, the same time as the 2.7 update. She is part of the 2.7 Phase 1 Banners, featured alongside a rerun of the Xiao Banner.

Lasting three weeks, the 2.7 Yelan Banner ends on Tuesday, 21st June 2022. The only Phase 2 Banner, Oni’s Royale, featuring Arataki Itto and Kuki Shinobu will then replace the Yelan and Xiao event Banners.

If you haven’t successfully wished for Yelan by then, there will be other opportunities to Wish for her in a Discerner of Enigmas Banner rerun! However, character reruns are never consistent, so if you really want Yelan, you should spend your Intertwined Fates on Wishing for her now.

Good luck Wishing on Yelan’s Banner!
