Xiangling Character Overview & Evaluation

Causes Enemies To Flinch

Xiangling attacks in a flurry of strikes and is able to flinch enemies, making them temporarily stop attacking. Moreover, because she attacks so many times, she works really well with auto-attack boosting items!

Elemental Skill and Burst Both Powerful

Both Xiangling's Elemental Skill and Burst abilities are "placed" on the field and remain there even after she swaps out! This is ideal for triggering Pyro-related reactions!

How To Get
Wish / Spiral Abyss (Event)


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.

I don't really understand what it means in-game.
