Xingqui Character Overview & Evaluation

Elemental Combo Triggering Support Character

Xingqui Support

Xingqui's Elemental Skill ability inflicts all enemies nearby with a Hydro debuff and summons a sword by his side. This sword stays even after you switch characters, making it easy to trigger plenty of Elemental Reactions!

Ascend Once For A Healing Talent

Ascending

↑ Xingqui ascending for the first time, unlocking the talent "Hydropathic"

Ascending Xingqui once will unlock his first talent, which buffs his Elemental Skill. Now, once your summoned sword is destroyed or expires naturally, you will recover HP! This can serve as a powerful way to recover damage taken and is quite useful against bosses.

Elemental Burst Remains After Switching

Xingqui's Elemental Burst ability causes beams of water to shoot in front of him. The good thing about this is that even if you switch out characters, this effect persists, making it easy to use and convenient for triggering elemental reactions.

Recommended Artifact Set Bonus

Seteffect
Noblesse Oblige2-Piece: Elemental Burst DMG +20%.
4-Piece: After using an Elemental Burst, all teammates get +20% ATK. Lasts 12s, does not stack.
Gladiator's Finale2-Piece: ATK +18%
4-Piece: Characters equipping this set who use a Sword, Claymore, or Polearm gain +35% increased regular attack damage.

Noblesse Oblige 4-Set Is Best

Xingqui works best when he's supporting other characters, so Noblesse's 4 set is ideal. Pop his Burst and immediately swap out into other characters to trigger reactions and deal massive boosted ATK damage.

Gladiator's Finale Is Your Next Option

If you can't get 4 pieces of Noblesse, consider getting Gladiator's finale to just boost your attack damage.

Profile

Profile
Affiliation: Liyue
Every merchant in Liyue Harbor nows of Xingqiu from the Feiyun Commerce Guild. All see him as kind and well-mannered young man who is an excellent student, a top talent in every sense. As the second-born son of the family, Xingqiu is not required to shoulder the burden of managing the Guild's affairs. However, Xingqiu possesses a unique scholarly talent among his peers - that is, the offspring of Liyue's wealthiest merchants - and was often praised by his tutors as a young student. Xingqiu's elder brother, while he was learning the family business from their father, firmly believed that Xingqiu would become a great asset to the business one day. However, little did he know that Xingqiu, after finishing the dauntingly thick volumes on commerce and philosophy, would hollow them out and sneak martial art novels into them, which he read incessantly thereafter. Sometimes, Xingqiu suddenly disappears for hours at a time with no explanation. When asked why, he simply replies: "A moment of solitude."
