Voicelines About Xinyan

Voicelines About Xinyan
BeidouBeidouShe's got a great personality, that one! The guys in the crew love that rock and roll of hers. Me? We have common ground, just... not when it comes to taste in music.
ChongyunChongyunI avoid Xinyan's performances like the plague. That heated atmosphere... Even if you don't intend to get involved, it still... Let's just say that it gets me all hot and bothered.
KeqingKeqingYou know what, I think her music rocks. Too noisy by traditional standards, for sure, but I don't care. Good music is good music. And good music should reach the widest possible audience.
XianglingXianglingXinyan always comes to the Wanmin Restaurant for a late-night snack! She gobbles up all the new dishes that the likes of Xingqiu and Chongyun don't go near... and nine out of ten times, she enjoys them too! She's great.
XingqiuXingqiuI always have to put on an act around other people, because they see me only as the second son of the Feiyun Commerce Guild. It's a relief that I can just be myself around you. I think it's because you don't see me in the same way.

Her shield does not imbue allies or herself with pyro. It generates a Pyro DoT if 2+ enemies have been hit with her second talent. 3+ without.
