The best Xiangling build in Genshin Impact

Turn up the heat.

Genshin Impact

Xiangling is an extremely valuable character early in Genshin Impact. Because you can get her from reach the end of the third level of the Spiral Abyss, it is likely that many players out there will be using her as their primary Pyro source for a while. In this guide, we will show you how to get the most out of her.

Xiangling is currently one of the best characters to take out the Hypostasis bosses thanks to her Pyronado ability that does considerable damage all around her, making it very easy to break the energy crystals in the final stage of the Hypostasis boss fights.

This build is based on the idea of casting with Xiangling, doing a few attacks, then switching to your main physical damage dealing character, or another caster.


The Crescent Pike is an excellent option for free-to-play players. It will give additional ATK damage, comes with a solid base damage value, and will really up the effectiveness of her abilities.

The Prototype Grudge is also a solid option, increasing attack damage for 12 seconds after you use an Elemental Skill. The best thing about both of these is that they can be made at the Blacksmith, so refining them to their highest levels is quite quick to do if you get lucky with boss drops.


The Noblesse Oblige will give an Elemental Burst damage buff of 20% at 2 pieces, and a full 20% attack buff to all party members for 12 seconds after using Elemental Burst at 4 pieces. This perfectly plays into the idea of casting her elemental burst, then switch to a character that is primed for heavy physical damage. You can farm this set at the Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern in Jueyan Karst, Liyue.
