Social interaction[]

Social chat.png Chat[]

See Dialogue subpage for all Yan's dialogue.

Chat is a basic social interaction available at any relationship level. Chatting with Yan once a day can increase his relationship by 1 point; subsequent chatting, on the same day, only results in the same conversation without any relationship gain.

Yan's dialogue may change every day and every season. Yan may also comment about certain events or missions. Higher relationship levels also change Yan's dialogue.

Social gift.png Gift[]

This table contains gifting data extracted from the game files and may contain unavailable or unimplemented items. Any errors or changes should be reported on the article comments of this page. Thank you!
  • Yan can be given one gift per day. Giving the same gift every day for several days may result in diminishing rewards.
  • Every giftable item in the game has a base point value when gifted. The Neutrals row of the table below only lists neutral items that give an increased reward compared to their base value.
  • The quality of items gifted may affect the relationship points gained, with higher quality items giving extra points.
  • Birthdays and festival days do not affect the relationship points gained. However, giving a gift on Yan's birthday will give a unique dialogue.
