Xiangling is an S++ tier character, being one of the strongest and most flexible Sub-DPS (Damage per Second) characters in the game. She wields a Pyro Polearn, and her strength lies in her burst ability that can afflict Pyro status on enemies and deal strong damage to multiple foes.

Because her abilities rely on the Pyro Elemental affinity, when she uses attacks that take advantage of her burst and elemental attacks, she can deal tons of damage on the front lines. And thanks to her range of attacks, she can deal damage to many foes at once, making her a solid DPS character for your team.

Below are the weapons and Artifacts you should use to create the best Xiangling build possible. Focusing on increasing her attack output and skills, allowing her to take full advantage of Elemental Reactions to cause some heavy damage on the field.

Recommended Weapon: The Catch

The catch is ideal for a character such as Xiangling as increases her Elemental burst damage by 16% and her Elemental Crit Rate is increased by 6%, which naturally scales as she levels up. However, if you can find this weapon just yet, below are some alternatives.

Recommended Artifact: Emblem of Severed Fate

  • 2-piece bonus: This Artifact gives Xiangling a 20% increase in her Energy Recharge
  • 4-piece bonus: She will gain an increase to her Elemental burst damage by 25% of her Energy Recharge, and a maximum of 75% bonus damage can be stacked this way

Though finding all four pieces proves difficult, there are some substitutes below.

Substitute Artifacts

  • 2-piece bonus: Pyro DMG Bonus +15%
