How to Obtain Xiangling in Genshin Impact​

Xiangling is a 4-star character that can be obtained for free in the Spiral Abyss. Aside from that, she’s a character that receives decent amounts of rate-ups from character banners.

Beat Floor 3 of the Spiral Abyss

Players can get a free copy of Xiangling by simply completing Floor 3, Chamber 3 of the Spiral Abyss! Players do not need to full 3 stars the chamber, so going in without a fully ascended level 90 character is not needed.

The Spiral Abyss can be unlocked once the player reaches Adventure Rank 20!

Pull from Any Active Banner

Xiangling is available at a normal rate on all Standard Wish Banners except Beginner’s Wish. This means you can get her from Wanderlust Invocation, Epitome Invocation, and the current Character Event Wish.

Bought From the Starglitter Exchange

As a 4-star character, Xiangling has a chance to appear in the Starglitter Exchange every month. She can be traded for 34 Masterless Starglitter.

Best Genshin Impact Xiangling Builds

Building Xiangling in Genshin Impact is pretty straightforward. The vast majority of her damage comes from her elemental burst. This elemental burst is an excellent way of triggering vaporize and melt, making Elemental Mastery an important stat for Xiangling.

Best Weapons for Xiangling in Genshin Impact

Any of these weapons will work with Xiangling. If you have another 5-star weapon aside from Staff of Homa, it’s also a good choice before delving into the 4-star weapon territory.

Staff of Homa

Staff of Homa

HP increased by 20%. Additionally, provides an ATK Bonus based on 0.8% of the wielder’s Max HP. When the wielder’s HP is less than 50%, this ATK bonus is increased by an additional 1% of Max HP.

Dragon's Bane

Dragon's Bane

Increases DMG against opponents affected by Hydro or Pyro by 20%.



If there are at least 2 opponents nearby, ATK is increased by 16% and DEF is increased by 16%. If there are fewer than 2 opponents nearby, ATK is increased by 24%.

Best Genshin Impact Xiangling Artifacts

Xiangling’s best artifacts depend on what kind of team composition she’s in. If you’re using her in a team composition that revolves heavily around Vaporize and Melt, go for the 4-piece Crimson Witch of Flames.

If you want her to deal good damage on her own, 4-piece Emblem of Severed Fate is on the table. However, keep in mind that she should have high energy recharge for this to outperform the Crimson Witch of Flames.

Xiangling has a little bit of an Energy problem, so pumping energy recharge on her is not a bad idea if you feel like she’s not performing up to par.

Noblesse Oblige is a very niche pick, only use this if she’s a filler and there’s nobody using the 4-piece Noblesse buff.

For main stats, lookout for Energy Recharge/Elemental Mastery Sands, Pyro DMG% Goblet, Crit Rate/Crit Damage Circlet depending on your Crit Rate.

Crimson Witch of Flames

Crimson Witch of Flames

  • 2-piece effect: Pyro DMG Bonus +15%
  • 4-piece effect: Increases Overloaded and Burning DMG by 40%. Increases Vaporize and Melt DMG by 15%. Using an Elemental Skill increases the 2-Piece Set Bonus by 50% of its starting value for 10s. Max 3 stacks.
Emblem of Severed Fate

Emblem of Severed Fate

  • 2-piece effect: Energy Recharge +20%
  • 4-piece effect: Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.
Noblesse Oblige​

Noblesse Oblige

  • 2-piece effect: Elemental Burst DMG +20%
  • 4-piece effect: Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members’ ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.
