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 with the attack will conjure flames on her shield, dealing AoE Pyro DMG to nearby enemies for a certain period of time.

Explosive Elemental Burst

Xinyan's Elemental Burst is a brief Pyro damage over time blast, with an initial Physical DMG burst that launches enemies. This Pyro Blast will last for a brief amount of time, and is also great for taking down Cryo shields.

With C2, this initial Physical Damage will always crit and form the best shield level.

Passive Talent creates more DEF-boosting Food

Xinyan Cooking Bonus
