Yanfei’s Normal attack is called Seal of Approval and its effects are:
- Normal Attack: Shoots fireballs that deal up to three counts of Pyro DMG. When Yanfei’s Normal Attacks hit enemies, they will grant her a single Scarlet Seal. Yanfei may possess a maximum of 3 Scarlet Seals, and each time this effect is triggered, the duration of currently possessed Scarlet Seals will refresh. Each Scarlet Seal will decrease Yanfei’s Stamina consumption and will disappear when she leaves the field.
- Charged Attack: Consumes Stamina and all Scarlet Seals before dealing AOE Pyro DMG to the opponents after a short casting time. This Charged Attack’s AOE and DMG will increase according to the amount of Scarlet Seals consumed.
- Plunging Attack: Gathering the power of Pyro, Yanfei plunges towards the ground from mid-air, damaging all opponents in her path. Deals AOE Pyro DMG upon impact with the ground.
Her Elemental Skill, Signed Edit, deals AOE Pyro damage but also creates the maximum number of Scarlet Seals for her.
