However, for many players, Yelan’s story quest will not be available from the get-go as it’s hidden behind game progression. To help such players out, we have prepared a handy guide that lists every pre-requisite for unlocking Yelan’s story quest in Genshin Impact

How to Unlock Yelan’s Story Quest

You can unlock Yelan’s story quest, “Umbrabilis Orchis Chapter: Act I – Calculated Gambit,” using Story Keys obtained by completing a certain number of Daily Commissions—granted, you meet the pre-requisites mentioned below:

Adventure Rank Requirement

To unlock Yelan’s story quest, you must be at Adventure Rank 40 or above. 

Archon Quest Requirement 

You also have to complete the latest Archon Quest, Interlude Chapter: Act II – “Perilous Trail.” The said quest itself requires a ton of pre-requisite quests that you have to complete to unlock. Thankfully, we already have a guide that lists everything you have to complete to unlock Interlude Chapter: Act II – “Perilous Trail.”

Story Quest Requirement 

Lastly, you have to complete Ganyu’s story quest, “Sinae Unicornis Chapter: Act I – Sea of Clouds, Sea of People.”

Once you have completed the above-listed pre-requisite quests, you can unlock Yelan’s story quest, “Umbrabilis Orchis Chapter: Act I – Calculated Gambit.” Just make sure you have two Story Keys handy. If not, you have to complete eight Daily Commissions to get a single key. That is—you have to complete 16 Daily Commissions to get two keys—which takes four days as each day, you only get four Dailies.
