Genshin Impact Xinyan guide: weapons, artifacts, and more

You wanted the best, you got the best: the hottest rockstar in the world, Ki-! … I mean, Xinyan! Liyue’s underground superstar is bringing the pyrotechnics to Genshin Impact - here’s how to get the show on the road.
Genshin Impact Xinyan guide: weapons, artifacts, and more

Genshin Impact's pyro-fueled rockstar can really pack a punch with high DPS output she can also perform a supportive role, equipping her with the right weapons and artifacts amplify those inherent abilities.

If you want to run Xinyan primarily for her DPS you have a lot of Claymore options open to you (lists and community discussions have over 12 viable options), if you want to edge her more towards a supportive, shielding role you are going to have a slightly narrower field to work with.

Whatever your priorities, here are some of the frontrunners:

Skyward Pride

A relatively balanced option that favours Xinyan’s Elemental Burst: more Energy Recharge plus a hefty damage amp from Sky-ripping Dragon Spine and its vacuum blades mean this build is great for blitzing opponents after using Riff Revolution. Great for burst heavy play styles that aren’t as focused around consistent damage.

The Unforged

A weapon made for Noelle and Xinyan. Stacking damage and a 20% shield strength increase is a match made in heaven for a Xinyan that wants to be on the field for an extended period. It’ll still work in a quick-swap or low-field time build for Xinyan but you don't get as much work done with Golden Majesty.

Even better, it’s currently got a massively upped drop rate on the current Epitome Invocation Banner. Catch it while you can!
