How to Use Xiangling

Versatile and fast Normal Attack

Xiangling Normal Attack.jpg

Xiangling has one of the fastest attacks in the game, which allows you to pull off different combos and attack variations. Due to this, Xiangling has high mobility and is great at evading. In Constellation Level 2, the final hit of her Normal Attack will apply Pyro DMG.

Use Guoba for Combat and Exploration

Guoba Combat.jpg
Xiangling's Elemental Skill summons Guoba, a small bear that spits fire. At Xiangling's 4th Ascension Gouba will even leave behind a chili pepper that'll increase your Attack by 10%.

Melt and Vaporize are very strong reactions that can heal high amounts of damage. With this in mind, you should switch into Hydro or Cryo characters after summoning Guoba.

Guoba Exploration.jpg

Outside of combat, Guoba is very useful in lighting up braziers and mechanisms during exploration, and lights up cooking areas.

Elemental Burst is very effective against mobs

Xiangling Elemental Burst.jpg

Xiangling's Elemental Burst, the Pyronado, launches a fire ring that spins around her for a number of seconds. This is very effective against enemy mobs, and a great way to set up quick Elemental Reactions like Melt, Vaporize, and Overload.

Passive lets you cook more ATK-boosting food

Attack food is best made by Xiangling. When she cooks ATK boosting food, she has as 12% chance of cooking two of the same dish.

>>3 Her combo string is pretty great, her best artifact recommendation is gladiator's finale, which means it's not really a pyro support build honestly
