The latest patch puts the spotlight back on Liyue with the introduction of Yelan, the new 5-star bow user. While locals mention that she is quite mysterious, Yelan’s trailer depicts her as Liyue’s very own vigilante, infiltrating various criminal syndicates and relaying intel to the Ministry of Civil Affairs.
If you happen to get Yelan through her character banner, your next task is to level her up and find a good bow for her, which can be difficult for free-to-play users. To help new Yelan mains out, HoYoverse is introducing a new event where players can get the 4-star bow weapon, Fading Twilight, for free.

This 4-star bow weapon is an exclusive reward given during the “Perilous Trail” event.
Players must complete challenges in the “Realms of Guile and War” to claim the event-exclusive free weapon and its refinement materials.
