Xiangling is a 4-star pyro polearm user and can actually do a lot of damage. If you need a pyro DPS on your team then it is worth building her. In this Genshin Impact guide, we are going to go over the materials that you need to level up Xiangling and recommend a build for her.
Genshin Impact Xiangling Ascension And Talent Materials
In order to make the most of Xiangling, you need to level her up and upgrade her talents. The following are all the materials that you need in order to do that.
The following are the ascension materials that you need in order to level up Xiangling to level 90:
- 1x Agnidus Agate Sliver
- 9x Agnidus Agate Fragment
- 9x Agnidus Agate Chunk
- 6x Agnidus Agate Gemstone
- 46x Everflame Seed
- 168x Jueyun Chili
- 18x Slime Condensate
- 30x Slime Secretions
- 36x Slime Concentrate
Agnidus Agate Sliver and higher-tier variants of the resource can be earned by beating the Pyro Regisvine and Pyro Hypostasis bosses. The Pyro Regisvine also drops Everflame Seed, so this is the boss that you should prioritize. Once you have the base resources, you can use the crafting bench to convert them into higher-tier variants. Jueyun Chili can be found in the wild in Liyue. Qingce Village is a great spot to get some. Slime Condensate and higher-tier variants can be farmed by beating Slime enemies. Once you have the base resources, you can use the crafting bench to convert them into higher-tier variants.
The following are the talent materials that you need to upgrade all of Xiangling’s talents:
- 9x Teachings of Diligence
- 63x Guide to Diligence
- 114x Philosophies of Diligence
- 18x Slime Condensate
- 66x Slime Secretions
- 93x Slime Concentrate
- 18x Dvalin’s Claw
- 3x Crown of Insight
Dvalin’s Claw can be earned by completing the Stormterror challenge. You can only get rewards from the challenge once a week, so it is going to take a while. If you have other drops from this challenge, then you can convert them into Dvalin’s Claw at the crafting table if you have Dream Solvent. You can get Crown of Insight from special events and leveling up the shrine tree in Inazuma.
Best Genshin Impact Xiangling Build
Leveling up the character and her talents is not going to be enough. You also need to get the right artifacts and weapon in order to deal proper damage. The following is the build that we recommend for Xiangling in Genshin Impact.
If you are going for a sub-DPS build then we can recommend the Engulfing Lightning. This is a 5-star weapon, so you will need to spend your Primogems on the weapons in order to get it. Energy recharge is the bonus stat of the weapon and it increases your attack equal to 28% of your energy recharge over the base 100%. You can get a max bonus of 80% this way. When you use your elemental burst attack, your energy recharge gets a buff of 30% for 12 seconds.
Staff of Homa is another 5-star weapon that we can recommend. It has crit damage as the bonus stat. It gives you a bonus to your HP and increases your attack based on your max HP.
Dragon’s Bane is a 4-star weapon that we can recommend if you are not interested in spending all those Primogems on the weapons banner. Elemental Mastery is the bonus stat of the weapon and it increases attack on enemies that are affected by hydro pyro by 20%. As Xiangling is a pyro character, this is going to come in handy.
The Catch is another weapon that we can recommend. Energy recharge is the bonus stat of the weapon and it increases elemental burst damage by 16% and elemental burst crit rate by 6%. This is going to help you deal high levels of consistent damage.
Prototype Grudge is another 4-star weapon that we can recommend if you do not have the above-mentioned options. Energy recharge is the bonus stat of the weapon and it increases normal and charged attack damage when you use an elemental skill.
If you are going for a sub-DPS build, we recommend the Emblem of Severed Fate set. This increases energy recharge by 20%. It increases elemental burst damage by 25% of your energy recharge. You can get a max buff of 75% this way. Be sure to have crit rate or crit damage on the hat and pyro damage bonus on the goblet.
If you are going for a burst DPS build then we can recommend the Noblesse Oblige set. This increases elemental burst damage by 20% and when you use the elemental burst it increases that attack of your party members by 20% for 12 seconds. Be sure to have crit rate or crit damage on the hat and pyro damage bonus on the goblet.
You can also go with the Crimson Witch of Flames set. This increases pyro damage by 15%. Overloaded and burning damage is increased by 40%. Vaporize and melt damage is increased by 15%. Using an elemental skill increases the 15% pyro damage bonus by 50% for 12 seconds. Be sure to have crit rate or crit damage on the hat and pyro damage bonus on the goblet.
