Best Free Characters

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.

Dendro Traveler is a close second choice, as they give plenty of Dendro application and Elemental Burst damage, as well.

because (just like they listed before) she was technically a free character at one point in time but now isn't until most likely a later event...she was indeed free during both lantern right events so that's probably how she will be givin free to us next time as well.
