Xiangling Quick TL;DR Team Comp Guide

Xiangling (The OG F2P carry)

Someone call PETA… Xiangling keeps feeding her panda a hot chili so it can puke fire…

Element: Pyro

Weapon: Polearm

Pros:

Consistent pyro procAverage E CDExtremely low Q CD
REALLY clean normal attacksExtremely easy to gear/playFree 10% ATK buffs
C2 gives her last hit an AoE pyro procHas both Pyro DMG buff and debuffsEM scaling as hidden stat = crazy overloaded damage

Cons:

Guoba can be a bit stupidQ has an awkward range for her normal attack parsesHigh Q cost
Dependent on superconduct to shineFairly squishy

PSA #1: Xiangling is an excellent DPS who has very few weaknesses. Her only real limitation is her elemental matchups, which can be easily subdued by her teammates. Taking advantage of quick CD’s and extending her Phys DMG window suits her best

Who to take (alternatives explained below!):

Fischl
  • Great electro user who can consistently apply electro (necessary for superconduct)
  • Oz is an absolute unit at dealing damage and generating energy
  • Fischl E and Q can be used quickly and swapped so Xiangling can be greedy and be on the field
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH BEIDOU OR LISA IF YOU WANT A SUB DPS ROLE
Xinyan
  • Provides pyro resonance, giving a free 25% ATK buff
  • Xinyan E is great for Xiangling, since it buffs Phys DMG by 15%
  • Xinyan E also gives a shield + provides pyro energy orbs/particles
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH BENNETT OR XINGQIU FOR FROZEN + ADDITIONAL DPS
Diona
  • Great cryo user who can consistently apply cryo (necessary for superconduct)
  • Diona E provides a shield + provides great energy regen
  • Diona Q is practically one of the greatest cryo applicators in the game
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH QIQI OR KAEYA FOR MORE ENERGY REGEN + Q SYNERGY FOR MELT

PSA #2: The team recommended is extremely hands-off, allowing Xiangling to be out as much as possible. It provides much needed tankiness as well as elemental damage/reactions, which perfectly fills the gap in Phys DMG Xiangling DPS. Alternatively, if you are taking Bennett (and don’t have Diona), you can run Kaeya for the cryo procs!

Great flex slot alternatives:

  • Bennett – Constant E spams (especially in Q) allow for Xiangling to spam Q. His Q is a burst heal + ATK buff that’s greatly appreciated
  • Xingqiu E provides a damage reduction shield that heals when broken. His Q is an excellent bonus source of DPS + spreading wet proc’s everywhere
  • Sucrose – EM mule for both superconduct OR melt/vaporize comps (both viable in Abyss). Has amazing AoE CC grouping and can pair with TTDS for additional buffs
  • Albedo – If not running electro user, Albedo E is essential for dealing with geo shields + another excellent source of DPS for Xiangling normal attack parses
  • Beidou – Claymore alternative as sub DPS + her Q is great for superconduct builds

Hope this helped. Bye.
