Genshin Impact Xiangling DPS and Support Build Guide
PSA #1: DPS are the protagonists of your team. The rest of the members literally only exist to make the DPS look like a god
PSA #2: Both Xiangling’s abilities scale with ATK. She’s also currently the only spear user so get this girl a spear bro
Elemental Skill – Guoba Attack
Summon some raccoon, panda bear hybrid thing that spits supa hot fire in an AoE cone (but he’s not a rapper!) Guoba also gets picked up by any Anemo ability with Swirl, so he goes on a ride along with the enemies
Make sure to pick up this chili after the bear disappears for a free 10% ATK boost. Eat ya vegetables kids
Elemental Burst – Pyronado
Summons three spinning fidget spinners around your character that does constant pyro damage. IT STAYS WHEN YOU SWAP CHARACTERS! Positioning is important since the fidget spinners are kinda wonky
A really helpful tip for her ultimate: the moment you activate it, run around a bit and slap everyone with it. The 3-stage hit damage stat is buggy, but the premise is the more you slap with fidget spinners = the more damage they do
PSA #3: Xiangling’s only flaw is her awkward pyro skills. Guoba is stationary and Pyronado can be inconsistent so most people run her as support > DPS.
WEAPON #1 (Recommended for DPS): Halberd
How do I get it D: ? – Go slap a few monsters and steal their chests
Has base scaling ATK + the additional burst every 10s make it extremely good at poking a permanent hole
A GREAT alternative can be White Tassel, since it has scaling CRIT% and it has a consistent 48% damage buff to your normal attacks. Still Halberd is recommended since you’ll be parsing.
Same with Crescent Pike! Feel free to swap off Halberd with it once you acquire it (just remember to refine it).
WEAPON #2 (Recommended for Support): Skyward Spine
How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)
Has scaling energy recharge which helps you spam ultimate. This is probably one of the most overtuned weapons. Has CRIT% + ATK SPD + a built in AoE burst that procs almost every other attack
PSA #4: If you’re a F2P player don’t sweat the details. Halberd can easily substitute for both DPS and Support builds. Honestly Halberd is poggers
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for DPS): Gladiator’s Finale
How do I get it D: ? – Any World Boss (40 Resin per run)
Set basically gives her all her firepower (get it?) to stab her enemies to end
ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for Support): Crimson Witch of Flames
How do I get it D: ? – Hidden Palace of Zhou Formula Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run)
Basically buffs her innate pyro damage, any reactions caused by them, and then says \”screw it\” and buffs pyro damage to overkill status (YES YOU CAN STACK THE BUFFS 3 WHOLE FRIGGIN TIMES)
PSA #5: Yes, you can just run Gladiator’s Finale for the support build as well. You will be missing out on reaction damage, but the raw ATK scales pretty well!
