How To Use Xiangling ?

Recommended Rotation For Xiangling

Recommended Rotation
1Use Elemental Skill to proc either Pyro Resistance down or get the Attack Buff from the chili Guoba leaves behind
2Release Elemental Burst. Can either go immediately to normal attack if Main DPS or switch to the Main DPS for combos

Uses Of Xiangling's Elemental Skill

Apply Pyro Resistance Debuff

Enemies hit by Guoba will receive a Pyro Resistance Down debuff. This should be an opener for you to ensure the most damage out of Xiangling's Burst.

Gives Ample Energy For Burst

Each hit of Guoba's firey breath gives energy to Xiangling. Although with low Energy Recharge, it can't fully charge Xiangling's Burst, it's still a reliable way of getting energy to her.

Get Attack Boost (If With Constellation)

Additionally, if you have enough constellations with Xiangling, Guoba will also leave behind a chili that will give an Attack Boost to whoever eats it. Use this whenever you're looking to start combos!

Uses Of Xiangling's Elemental Burst

Constant Elemental Reaction

Xiangling's Burst is one of the best skills when it comes to getting Elemental Reactions since it has no internal cooldown. All of her hits will proc Elemental Reaction. Use it when you're ready with either your main DPS or enabler to proc reactions.

Strengths Of Xiangling

One Of The Best Pyro Sub-DPS

Xiangling currently stands as one of the best Pyro sub-DPS because of her whole kit. Besides her Burst, the benefits her Skill gives is also quite valuable since it further increase her damage.

Can Work With Almost Any Team

Because of her on-field Burst, Xiangling can fit in almost any team comp. She can easily work with any main DPS or enabler, and she'll work well with other supports like Bennett really well.

Weaknesses Of Xiangling

Doesn't Work Well With Overload

More of Overload in general, but since Xiangling will keep on doing elemental reactions, enemies will continue to be knocked back because of it. You'll need to chase them around, but that's basically the most problem with it.

Affiliation: Liyue
"Coming, coming! Here's your Stir-Fried Filet! And your Mora Meat. And Fried Radish Balls, as you ordered." In Liyue, there's a place called Chihu Rock, and there stands a restaurant known as Wanmin Restaurant. One must remain focused if they want to keep moving forward on the bustling streets of Liyue. Unsuspecting newcomers to this place are often lured away by wonderful culinary aromas or lead to peek inside stores by curious sounds. Xianling, who is both chef and waitress at the restaurant, delivers steaming, delicious dishes to the tables. "Sit anywhere you'd like. I can make whatever you want, even if it's not on the menu!" The workers at Wanmin Restaurant can recognize a regular, if not by their face, then by the first sentence out of their mouths. A customer that orders without needing a menu has been at least a few times before. However, if they ask "Is Xiangling the chef today?" then they're definitely a regular.

Xiangling Story Overview

Wanmin Restaurant Head Chef

She is the daughter of Chef Mao who runs and co-owns the Wanmin Restaurant alongside with Xiangling.

Loves Food & Cooking

She shows us how she loves to engulf herself with different kinds of dishes, and tries her best to create new dishes to be added on her list of food. She preferably likes her food with chili peppers!

Voicelines About Xiangling

Voicelines About Xiangling
ChongyunChongyunXiangling's cooking is universally praised, but I personally don't touch any of her spicy dishes. Why? Oh, you know — just, uh... personal preference, that's all. I mean, come on, Mushroom Slime Stew... Does that sound appetizing to you?
BeidouBeidouWhen we're out on the open ocean, the one thing we do all miss is Xiangling's cooking. When spirits are low, just thinking of her fried jueyun chili, bursting with flavor... It gives everyone just that little extra kick.
NingguangNingguangThat girl from Wanmin Restaurant... Her suspicion towards me is always written all over her face... Hehe, I wonder what face she would make if only she knew how much I helped finance that restaurant...
KeqingKeqingYeah, the up-and-coming chef from Wanmin Restaurant... I get that she's gifted and everything, I just think her cooking can be a bit hit-or-miss. I was all ready to hire her for a small banquet once, and give her full control over the menu... but the amount of lizard and slime in her sample dishes quickly turned me off to that idea!
Hu TaoHu Tao Xiangling's a riot! Only a little "boo" and she jumps, she's so easy to scare! Being in the industry that I am, I just love these kinds of people the most. Gotta keep it in check though, in case Guoba ends up toasting me instead.
XingqiuXingqiuWhen you first spot Xiangling out and about, the first thing you should do is check the look on her face. Especially when she's just coming back from collecting new ingredients — the more excited she looks, the more dangerous it is to approach. Because if she sees you, she'll force you to taste-test her latest concoction... I usually get Chongyun to handle these situations, hehe...
DionaDionaXiangling once gave me a "so-awful-it-goes-with-nothing" food combination she came up with, saying how it tasted absolutely terrible, blah blah blah... It didn't work, no use at all. All my little cat ears heard that night was "One more cup of that good stuff!" *sigh*
XinyanXinyanI have dinner at the Wanmin Restaurant often. If Xiangling's got some time on her hands, we'll chat till it's real late. Eh? You wanna know what I order? See... I actually eat everything she makes. It's never the same thing, and the flavor's different each time, too. Ooh, she's the rock star of the culinary world, she is!
GanyuGanyuXiangling is a celebrity! Um, but... I try to avoid her restaurant. Just... because. No reason. ...Okay, fine. It's not a big secret anyway. It's because you can smell her cooking all the way from the other end of the street. And once you get a whiff, I mean, that's it. You're gone. Next thing you know, you're ordering your second, maybe third round... You just can't control it. Even though I only eat the vegetarian dishes, I don't know what it is. But that is not a road I want to go down again... Not after...

In my thoughts. Ayaka is the best for premium DPS with xiangling.

@AlchemistAlbedo best to use The Catch with 4 piece Emblem of Severed Fate for burst support

What the guy down there said. Should I use dragon's bane or the catch for her (burst support)?
