In this guide we are going to talk about Xiangling, one of the best DPS in Genshin Impact, and how to improve the character with her Constellations.
Xiangling is considered a top-tier character in Genshin Impact. Mainly because of her Elemental Burst, Pyronado, which she can apply Pyro over a wide area, inflicting high damage.
The combos that Pyronado can combine with are endless, as Xiangling is the only effective out-of-bounds Pyro user right now in Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact – Xiangling Constellation Guide
Xiangling Constellations definitely improve his ability to operate as a Sub-DPS in Genshin Impact. However, she can still be a solid unit without them. Its C4 is its best Constellation, as it turns it into a very powerful out-of-field unit.
C1 – Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside
- It is made: Opponents hit by Guoba’s attacks have their Pyro Resistance reduced by 15% for 6s.
- Importance: Average
Xiangling’s C1 has one of the most important passives in his Constellations. Destroying enemies’ Pyro resistance by 15% is a huge boost for Xiangling and the other Pyro users on your team.
However, the effect only applies when Guoba hits an opponent with its flames, which is difficult to do as it is difficult to control its positioning. Xiangling’s C1 effect is still a solid passive, especially against large enemies that don’t move much.
C2 – Oil meets fire
- It is made: The last attack in a Normal Attack chain applies the Implode status on the opponent for 2s. An explosion will occur when this duration ends, dealing 75% of Xiangling’s ATK as Pyro Damage in an area.
- Importance: Low
Xiangling’s C2 effect slightly increases her ability to operate as a main DPS, giving her a small boost to her normal attacks. This Constellation is completely meaningless as it does not match its Sub-DPS role.
C4 – Slow roasting
- It is made: Pyronado’s duration is increased by 40%.
- Importance: Priority
Xiangling before and after C4 is a completely different DPS unit in Genshin Impact. Xiangling’s C4 has the duration of her Elemental Burst increased by almost half the period, which further improves her ability to be an off-field Sub-DPS.
If players plan on using Xiangling in their future team compositions, having this Constellation is essential to maximize its effectiveness.
C6 – Condensed Pyronado
- It is made: During Pyronado, all party members receive a 15% bonus to Pyro damage.
- Importance: High
Xiangling’s C6 gets a nice buff for her and the other Pyro users on her team. That 15% increase to her Pyro DMG will improve her Elemental Burst and help her better operate in her role as an off-field Sub-DPS.
Characters who receive the effect of Xiangling Constellation will enjoy increased Pyro Damage along with a wider range of Pyro applications made by Xiangling’s Pyronado.
