How to Use Xinyan

The information below is based on prerelease footage for the 1.1 Update. Details may change after the update has been released.

Genshin Impact 1.1 Update

Elemental Skill creates a Pyro Shield

Xinyan 1.png

Xinyan's Elemental Skill creates a Pyro Shield enveloping her body after the attack has ended. Like Beidou, this skill allows her to simultaneously attack and defend, making it suitable for both offensive and defensive situations.

It hasn't been confirmed whether the Shield will carry over when switching characters, but much of Xinyan's potential hinges on this possibility.

Elemental Burst covers the area in flames

Xinyan 2.png

Xinyan's Elemental Burst is a big bad Pyro blast, torching the area around and leaving no survivors. Based on the revealed footage, it seems to cover a wide range in a single attack, allowing her to handle all mobs in the vicinity without worrying about position or aim.
