This post is hella weird. Xiangling is not recommended, cuz you get one for free? xiang has one of the best constelations for 4* and you usually want 4* with constelations. One of the best supports in the game. Also Xingju's main advantage is his p***ive that is the best thing u can get long-term.

Excited about getting my c5 Ningguang to c6!
