All Polearms Are Viable But Go For CRIT Stat

While all existing polearms are viable for Xiangling, it is recommended to aim for CRIT stat as much as possible since it is the best stat for a damager. Nevertheless, it is great to use a polearm that can provide a lot of damage multipliers and whose passive can be maximized by Xiangling.

Xiangling Best Team Comp

Premium Team For Xiangling

Xiangling is a great off-field Pyro DPS that works well with characters that react with Pyro, especially Vaporize.

Sub DPSFlex SupportMain DPSSupport
- Xiangling will act as a Sub DPS dealing Pyro to enemies off-field.
- With Bennett, her attacks will be further boosted with resonance and buff from Burst. Make sure to use her Burst while inside Bennett's circle to snapshot the buff.
- Childe is a great as an on-field DPS with Xiangling since Childe will be able to deal powerful Vaporize damage consistently.
- Kazuha will buff the damage of Childe and Xiangling.

Other Characters That Works With Xiangling

- Jean is a more direct replacement for Bennett. However, she doesn't have the ATK buff, but can instead provide Elemental Shred
- Diona will change the dynamic of the team slightly since it will be Freeze/Melt. If you have her at C6, she can provide a hefty Elemental Mastery buff
- Neuvillete and Ayato are great replacements for Childe since they all can fill the on-field Hydro Main DPS role
- Alternatively, Xiangling works great as a Pyro Sub-DPS even for Mono Comps such as with Lyney
- Sucrose is a direct replacement for Kazuha
- Venti on the other hand is best against enemies that are light/small since he can group them. Against other enemies, he's not that effective

Free-To-Play Party

Sub DPSSupportSupportMain DPS
- Amber & Xiangling gives the team Pyro Resonance that boosts ATK.
- Barbara can heal and spread Hydro for vaporize & freeze reaction.
- Kaeya can inflict Cryo for Melt and also act as a main DPS.

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. This is unlockable at C1

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.

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.

Works Well With Buffs

Any buffs that are applied to Xiangling when her Burst is activated stay all though out the Elemental Burst period. Make sure to buff Xiangling before activating her Elemental Burst to maximize her damage.

Xiangling Wish & Constellation Guide

Should You Get Or Wish For Xiangling?

Xiangling Is A Free Character


Xiangling can be obtained upon clearing Spiral Abyss Floor 3. She is a great off-field Pyro DPS that can increase the ATK & Pyro DMG of the whole team.

Her constellations can be obtained in all banners and limited banners that feature Xiangling. Although Xiangling's constellation improves her DPS capabilities, it is not recommended to aim for Xiangling when pulling unless Xiangling's rate is boosted.

Opponents hit by Guoba's attacks have their Pyro RES reduced by 15% for 6s.
★★・・・C2: Oil Meets Fire
