How to Use Xingqiu

Easy-to-use close range attacks are great for beginners

Xingqiu 1.png

Xingqiu uses a Sword, the most basic of the five Weapon types, to execute quick and easy melee attacks. Compared to characters with claymores, Xingqiu loses the advantage of the spinning held attack, but his attacks are easy to land hits with, making him great to start out with while getting the ropes of the gameplay.

That said, her attack range is rather small, so you'll need to play evasively and use the Dash frequently to avoid being surrounded by foes.

Avoid enemies' Electro attacks

Xingqiu 2.png

Xingqiu must watch out for Electro attacks when fighting. His Elemental Skill “Fatal Rainscreen”, equips him with the Hydro Element, making him vulnerable to the Electro-Charged Reaction and dealing more damage than one would expect.

After initiating his Elemental Skill, take care to Dash frequently and avoid enemy attacks to avoid taking damage as much as possible.

Use when crafting Character Talent Materials

Xingqiu has the Passive Skill “Flash of Genius”, which grants a chance of regaining a portion of the crafting materials used in creating Character Talent Materials.

Since the materials used require grinding Domains to collect, it's best to exhaust as few as possible with each item crafted, so it's worth taking the effort to select Xingqiu whenever you craft these items.
