Xiangling is the best free to play character to level up as she is one of the best Sub-DPS units thanks to her strong Elemental Burst DMG and easy Pyro Application.

Kaeya and Barbara are also viable to use thanks to their easy Cryo application and party wide healing respectively. You can also use Noelle if you have unlocked every constellation of hers.
