Aqua Simulacra + Primordial Jade Winged Spear

While Aqua Simulacra is the signature weapon for Yelan, the other weapon perfectly suits for the Anemo character Xiao. Both of these weapons are quite powerful even on their base attack. Yelan’s weapon focuses on CRIT DMG whereas the Spear focuses on CRIT Rate. The 4-star weapons in this banner is currently unknown.

Fans have been reacting to the Genshin Impact 2.7 banners saying that the 4-star characters in Yelan and Xiao’s banner would not drive much sales as these characters are not used frequently in the game. However, the excitement for knowing the 4-star weapons remains intact.
