Best Build for Xiangling in Genshin Impact

"Even though it can be obtained for free, Xiangling is a Genshin Impact character who is flexible and can fulfill many roles."

Xiangling is one of the few Genshin Impact characters that you can get for free. But even so, he wasn't a weak or useless character. On the contrary, he is a very flexible character who can play several roles well in the team.

In this article, we will discuss the best builds for Xiangling in Genshin Impact.

Xiangling's Best Weapon

As usual, ideally you want to get a five-star spear, whether it's Primordial Jade (for DPS) or Skyward Spine (for Sub-DPS). But you still have a large selection of four-star weapons as alternatives. Which weapon is suitable for Xiangling in your team depending on the role he has to play.

  • Crescent Pike: If you want to play Xiangling as the main DPS, the best weapon you can provide is Crescent Pike. In terms of stats, this weapon provides a physical damage bonus suitable for the main DPS. In addition, this effect can also increase up to 40 percent if you Refine to level five. The good news is, because it can be made in Blacksmith, Refining this weapon is not difficult.
  • Prototype Grudge or Favonius Lance: Both of these weapons give Energy Recharge as the second stats. If you want to play Xiangling as a Sub-DPS, you certainly need these stats in order to continue using Elemental Burst. Of these two options, Prototype Grudge is a little better because it gives you a bonus Attack every time you use Elementa Skills.
  • Dragon's Bane: Dragon's Bane is a weapon suitable for Xiangling DPS or Sub-DPS. But for this weapon to be effective you probably have to have a fairly specific lineup. When using this weapon, you need a teammate who can provide consistent Pyro effects or help trigger continuous Elemental Reactions.

Xiangling's Best Artifact

In truth, Xiangling's Artifact choice was actually quite simple and it again depended on the role he held. The same is true for the stats you are looking for. If you are playing as a DPS, of course, you are looking for Artifacts that give Attack%, ​​Crit Rate, and Crit Damage. If playing as a Sub-DPS, you may need to look for Pyro Damage. But to be honest, the stats you are looking for for Xiangling Artifact really depend on how this character plays in your lineup, either as DPS or Sub-DPS.

  • Gladiator's Finale (4): For Xiangling who plays DPS, you can take the full set of Gladiator's Finale. This set will provide significant additional damage to Xiangling's attack.
  • Lavawalker (4): Lavawalker is also suitable for Xiangling DPS, but only if you have a lineup that can consistently give Pyro effects to your opponent. Otherwise, you won't be able to make good use of the effects of this set.
  • Crimson Witch of Flames (4): For Xiangling who plays as support, the best Artifact set is of course Crimon Witch. This set will significantly increase your Elemental Skill and Burst damage. In addition, if you can consistently produce Pyro-based Elemental Reactions, this set will help you deal even more damage.

Best Lineup for Xiangling

Xiangling is a very versatile character. As a spear user, he had fast attacks. Apart from that, he can also produce Pyro thanks to his strong Elemental Skills and Burst. This means that this character has a flexible position in your lineup.

If you want to play Xiangling as the main DPS, you need a teammate to help activate Elemental Reaction for additional damage. Characters like Fischl, Chongyun, or Xingqiu are examples of characters that meet this criterion because each of them can help activate the Overload, Melt, or Vaporize effect for a long duration.

If played as a Sub-DPS, Xiangling is in charge of helping to trigger Elemental Reaction for the team's main DPS. Characters that will benefit from Xiangling's existence include Keqing, Razor, or Tartaglia.
