Ability Tips

A few commonly used teams for pyro Xiangling are:

  • National Team: Xiangling, Xingqiu, Bennett and a Flex unit (Sucrose/Zhongli/Kazuha/Raiden/Chongyun/etc)
  • Childe Team: Childe, Xiangling, Bennett and a Flex unit (Sucrose/Zhongli/Venti/Kazuha/etc)

Recommended ER thresholds:

  • National/Childe Teams: 160-200 ER%
  • Enabler for Reverse Melt teams: 200-250 ER%

Gameplay Tips

Regarding Weapon Choices: This list assumes that xiangling is run with both bennett and a secondary buffer (i.e. Kazuha/Sucrose)

Wavebreaker’s Fin: [R5] Wavebreaker’s Fin is equal to or outperforms Staff of Homa, depending on your total team burst cost.

Dragon’s Bane: [R5] Dragon’s Bane outperforms Primordial Jade-Winged Spear.

Kitain Cross Spear: Kitain Cross Spear’s passive reduces the ER threshold of Xiangling greatly, down to ~140 ER% at [R1] and ~110 ER% at [R5]. This allows you to distribute ER rolls into otherwise offensive substats and due to this, an [R5] Kitain Cross Spear can outperform Primordial Jade-Winged Spear. Due to lowering ER thresholds so much, the Crimson Witch of Flames (4) artifact set will outperform Emblem of Severed Fate (4).

Lithic Spear: [R5] Lithic Spear with 2 stacks performs equal to Primordial Jade-Winged Spear.

Favonius Lance: The utility provided from a highly refined Favonius Lance can make it a weapon of choice in a team comp where Xiangling is not triggering the reaction and is instead used as an aura. (i.e. Reverse Melt teams)

Regarding Weapons and Artifacts with EM stat:

  • Dragon’s Bane / Kitain Cross Spear / EM substats: In team comps where you can trigger both Vaporise and Overload at the same time (i.e. Raiden National), Elemental Mastery gets more value, pushing these weapons and artifacts ahead in damage.

Regarding Artifact Sets:

  • Crimson Witch (4): This set pulls ahead over Emblem of Severed Fate (4) on team comps where Xiangling triggers Overloads in addition to Vaporise (i.e. Raiden National).
  • The Exile (2) Scholar (2): This set can be used as a very low investment support build to enable Reverse Melt team comps where Xiangling is not triggering the reaction and is instead used as an aura and needs a lot of Energy Recharge. Note that it is not recommended to stay on this build as Xiangling can still contribute respectable damage with offensive stats.

Xiangling: Physical DPS Build

Gameplay Tips

It is not recommended to run Physical DPS Xiangling since Xiangling excels more as an Off-field Pyro DPS. Physical Xiangling is only good for early game.

Regarding Weapon Choices:

  • Crescent Pike: Crescent Pike is extremely strong on Xiangling due to the nature of her attack combo, Crescent Pike continues to surpass Primordial Jade Winged-Spear in terms of Normal/Charge Attack Damage.

Regarding Artifact Sets:

  • Pale Flame (4): The passive from this set can have 100% uptime through using Guoba off cooldown.
