Do you like Xiangling? You may see that this character is pretty and you want to have this character in Genshin Impact. But, is this character still free? And, how to be able to get this character in the game? You can read everything about Xiangling below including how to get her.
Is Xiangling Still Free?
As we know that sometimes after an update, there will be some changes. And now, after several months of Genshin Impact release, you may wonder whether Xiangling is still free or not. Well, for now it seems that Xiangling is still free and you are able to get this character for free by getting Adventure Rank 20 and then unlocking the Spiral Abyss.
How to Unlock Xiangling in Genshin Impact
You may agree that Xiangling is the best of the free characters. So, now I wonder why this character is the most difficult character to get. If you can get Adventure Rank 20, you will be able to unlock the Spiral Abyss. What is it? It is a kind of floor-based dungeon where you will be able to take your squad via progressively harder floors, getting some bonuses as you go. If you are able to manage to clear Floor 3, Chamber 3 of the Spiral Abyss, you will be able to obtain Xiangling for free.
So, you are able to get Xiangling without having to spend real money, gacha pulls, or have good luck. As explained earlier that you have to be at Adventure Rank 20. To be on that rank, you can explore, open chests, complete side quests and more. If the Spiral Abyss is successfully unlocked, then you can get there.
You are able to find the Spiral Abyss on Musk Reef and you are able to reach it through a portal on Cape Oath which is near the southeastern end of the Mondstadt region. Now, you have to make it through Chamber 3, Floor 3 of the Spiral Abyss. For your information, there are three floors in each chamber. It means that you will need to go through and complete nine challenges. What challenges are they? Those are timed battles. Sometimes those challenges can be tiring especially if the level of the characters are below 45 or 50.
Players in Genshin Impact can select a bonus at the beginning of each round. However, they will not have access to healing items and they need to keep the same four characters the whole time. It is a big challenge. Nevertheless, it is more interesting than spending money and worrying about rerolling for characters.
In Genshin Impact, Xiangling is one of the playable characters. She has a Pyro element. The rarity of this character is 4 stars. Her birthday is on November 2nd. She was released on September 28th, 2020.
At the Wanmin Restaurant, Xiangling is the Head Chef. She operates this restaurant with her father, Chef Mao. As a chef, she is not fearful to try different recipes or exotic ingredients. By doing it, it makes her dishes sometimes quite unique.
Her interest is cooking and she has learned the art from her father. She does not have a sharp eye to a specific type of cuisine. She thinks that food is a way to expand and experiment. For her recipes, she will use anything, even ingredients which are unconventional that can gross out other people. If there is some food that is not liked by her, she will not give up. She will just press on to modify or begin from scratch.
The unconventional cooking that she makes is led her to acclaim in both Mondstadt and Liyue. She is not concerned about Mora. She states that food functions to nourish. In addition, she also states that the smiles on the faces of the customers is precious for her. She does not like limiting herself to a specific style of cooking and she thinks it as bland and unsurprising.
Xiangling’s hair is dark indigo-black which she keeps in a pair of panda-like braided buns. She also has a pale skin, a pair of golden eyes, and a perpetual smile on her face. On one side of her bangs, she wears a golden paw-shaped hair clip.
In terms of clothes, she wears a brown and gold leotard. There are red ribbons in the front and back of it. She also has a gold belt that she uses to carry around her red panda companion. She wears brown fingerless gloves and she also wears boots. Besides, there is a braided red ribbon around one leg.
