How to Use Xiangling

Combo Her Attacks for Massive Damage

Xiangling 1.png

Depending on how you string Xiangling's attacks together, you can deal a lot of damage. After the fourth hit of her normal attack you can start up a charge attack to hit hard.

If you finish with a charge attack, smaller enemies will all get knocked down which can help lead into your next attack. Due to this, Xiangling has high mobility and is great at evading.

Use Guoba for Elemental Reactions

Xiangling 2.png
Xiangling's Elemental Talent summons Guoba, a small bear that spits fire. Guoba is only on the field for a limited time, so switch to another character immediately after summoning to rack on the Elemental Reactions.

Melt and Vaporize are especially good due to the additional effect of removing the previously applied Elements allowing for setup of other reactions. With this in mind, you should switch into Hydro or Cryo characters after summoning Guoba.

Bet at Cooking Attack Boosting Food

Food with the red icon in the corner are best made by Xiangling. When she cooks attack boosting food, she has as 12% chance of cooking two of the same dish, so when you want to increase your damage, have Xiangling do the cooking!

I think the main stats of the accessories are wrong. You can't get an ATK on a Flower of Life. They are only all HP. Also, the Plume of Death provides only ATK.
