Xiangling may not be the most powerful character in the game of Genshin Impact, but she is certainly one of the best. Xiangling sits on a line between both DPS and sub-DPS depending on how you build her. Well, now we are going to share the best build for Xiangling.
Best Genshin Impact Xiangling build
The most obvious method to build Xiangling is to focus on pyro damage and reducing skill cooldowns. Xiangling is unique in that both of her abilities continue to happen, even if you switch characters. Because of this you are able to build her either as your primary or secondary DPS.
Apparently, there are two four-star weapons that we recommend for Xiangling. Prototype Grudge boosts damage once you use an Elemental Skill, while Crescent Pike boosts damage whenever you pick up an Elemental Orb. The first one is better once you cast an ability and switch, while the second one is better once you do DPS as Xiangling. For a budget option, you will be able to go with a trusty tree-star Halberd, it is really not that bad.
- Prototype Grudge (Pyro Focused)
After Using an Elemental Skill, it will be able to increases Normal and Charged Attack DMG by 8 percent for 12 seconds. Maximum 2 stacks.
- Crescent Pike (Attack Build)
After picking up an Elemental Orb, Normal or Charged Attacks will deal an additional 20 percent ATK as Damage for 5 seconds.
- Skyward Spine (5-Star)
It will be able to increases critical rate by 8 percent and also increases normal attack speed by 12 percent. In addition, normal and charged attack hits on opponents have a 50 percent chance to trigger a vacuum blade which deals 40 percent of attack as DMD in a small AOE. This effect will occur no more than once every two seconds.
- Halberd (Budget)
Normal Attacks will deal an additional 160/200/240/280/320 percent damage. For your information, it will occur once every 10 seconds.
The best artifact set for Xiangling is one which focuses on the aforementioned elemental abilities. You may want something along the lines of Crimson Witch of Flames, Noblesse Oblige, or The Exile. The first will power up elemental burst damage, while the last will be able to power up all Pyro damage.
