How to Use Xinyan

Elemental Skill creates a Pyro Shield

Xinyan's Elemental Skill attacks nearby enemies with Pyro DMG, and forms a shield. The amount of DMG absorption that the shield can handle is based on her DEF stat, along with the number of enemies hit by the attack. Hitting 3 enemies will deal Pyro DMG to nearby enemies for a certain period of time.

Elemental Burst covers the area in flames

Xinyan's Elemental Burst is a Pyro Blast with a huge AoE, which can burn enemy mobs with ease. The first part of the burst launches enemies and deals Physical DMG, while the explosion deals Pyro DMG to the surrounding area. This is great when combined with other burst abilities, creating devastating Elemental Reactions.

Passive Talent creates more DEF-boosting Food

Xinyan Cooking Bonus

Similar to Noelle, Xinyan's Passive Talent allows her to cook more DEF boosting food. this allows you to create more dishes while saving more ingredients in the process.
