A Pyro Claymore User With Additional Utility

Pyro Claymore

Xinyan uses claymore and her pyro vision to defeat enemies. She is able to summon fire and hit opponents with it in a wide AOE.

Can Form Powerful Shields

Pyro Claymore

When Xinyan hits opponents with her elemental skill, she is able to form a pyro shield that will not only protect her from enemies but also makes her attack imbued with pyro energy. The number of enemies hit by her elemental skill increases the quality of the shield.

Allies Equipped With Her Shield Will Gain Pyro Element

When her shield is on another character, that character's attack will be imbued with pyro

Elemental Burst Is A Huge Pyro AOE

Pyro Burst

When Xinyan's burst is casted, she will strum her guitar summoning a large Pyro AOE dealing huge pyro damage to enemies around her.

Potential Boosted At C2 & C6

Unlocking C2 will make her Burst create a shield around her enabling her to continuously absorb and block damage from enemies.

Rockin' in a Flaming World Makes Her A Powerful DPS

C6 increases the power of Xinyan's charge attack and lessen the stamina consumption with a Bonus of 50% ATK that scales from her already high defense. Because of this she can deal powerful damage while maintaining her bulky status.
