Xinyan Quick TL;DR Team Comp Guide

Xinyan (She’s got the power of Rock’N Roll)

Not sure if you guys noticed, but she literally has a giant blade at the butt of her guitar

Element: Pyro

Weapon: Claymore

Pros:

Consistent pyro procE ready 5s after duration endsLow Q CD (15s)
Average Q Cost (60)Good Phys DPSPassive buffs Phys DMG
Constellations are ALL REALLY GOOD FOR DPSBurst hits really hard (C2 breaks her)Great as a sub

Cons:

E aura is still really buggyVery low energy regenExcels with superconduct
Shield not very reliableIf shield breaks = lose 15% Phys DMG buff

PSA #1: Xinyan has an identity crisis, but she can still work as a main DPS. She actually has an insanely strong constellation tree, strong Phys DMG buffs/debuffs, and her burst is spammable (C2 is pog). Her team should focus on superconduct and easy energy regen

Who to take (alternatives explained below!):

Bennett
  • Can spam E to give quick pyro particles (swap to Bennett, E, swap to Xinyan)
  • Benny Q is an insane buff + high sustain heal
  • Can be run as sub DPS as well + pyro resonance buff
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH XIANGLING OR VENTI AS ENERGY GENERATOR
Fischl
  • Oz is excellent at proc’ing electro consistently + frequent energy particles
  • Essential for proc’ing superconduct
  • Doesn’t require much field time, can be played as turret Support
  • CAN BE REPLACED FOR BEIDOU (HER Q) OR LISA WITH TTDS FOR 48% BUFF
Diona
  • Diona can spam E for quick cryo procs + energy + a much stronger shield
  • Essentially for proc’ing superconduct and melt (which is strong)
  • Her Q with Bennett Q actually continuously proc’s melt on enemies who enter
  • CAN BE REPLACED WITH QIQI OR KAEYA IF YOU WANT TO RUN BENNETT HEALER INSTEAD

PSA #2: Snow-Tombed Starsilver is a really strong weapon for her (especially with this comp). Just remember to hit enemies with E (if you have C2), have shield up, proc superconduct, THEN Xinyan Q to get the full Phys DMG buff cycle. Artifacts: 2-set Bloodstained + 2-set Glad works great

Great flex slot alternatives:

  • Venti – Great battery with E spam, and provides amazing AoE CC with his Q for when Xinyan Q’s
  • Sucrose – Although EM mules aren’t frequent in superconduct builds, still very helpful + cheap to gear. TTDS is still an extremely strong buff and justified to take by itself
  • Kaeya – E spam can provide great energy + consistent Cryo proc’s. Only issue is Kaeya E can proc melt before superconduct if Xinyan E has aura activated
  • Beidou – Her Q is a reliable source of electro proc, and extremely easy to spread + Beidou E can be used to break geo shields fairly quickly
  • Any Catalyst user – TTDS is extremely easy to run, and particularly nice for Xinyan Q nuke windows

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK QUESTIONS BELOW! I’ll try my best to respond as I know some players may not have ANY of the characters mentioned

Hope this helped. Bye.

    How about 2 PF + 2 BC?

    Do you think that if I get Kazuha, he can support Xinyan well? or do you think that he is not good? I currently have xinyan, beidou, diona, and xiangling but I really like kazuha’s aesthetic and playstyle but I am worried if it will not be a good team comp.

      I can’t currently disclose full info on Kazuha since I’m signed under NDA as a CC and CBT member, but my general hint/direction is he’ll be much better suited for main DPS than supporting!
