Genshin Impact Xinyan Guide – 10 Tips and Tricks

Want to know about Xinyan? We have the Genshin Impact Xinyan guide that covers everything about her with some best tips and tricks.

As a musician, Xinyan enjoys playing Rock and Roll, which isn’t a popular genre of music in Liyue. As a result of her eagerness to stand out, she often scares people away with her over-enthusiasm or people simply find it really weird. However, she remains undeterred and is still trying to spread the genre across Liyue.

As a pyro, Xinyan plays a defensive role in Genshin Impact. The Chinese stringed instrument, ruan, is one of the instruments she uses to stir the people’s passions and criticize prejudice. Shielding her allies and dealing with physical and pyro damage are the main objectives of her kit. Here is our Genshin Impact Xinyan guide with some of the best tips and tricks.

Genshin Impact Xinyan Guide: Skyward Pride

Primogems must be spent on the weapons banner in order to get this 5-star weapon. There is an 8% increase in all damage from this weapon. It has an energy recharge bonus stat. Normal and charged attacks combine to create a vacuum blade that deals 80% of your attack to enemies nearby when you use your elemental burst attack. You can make up to eight vacuum blades in a minute. 

Genshin Impact Xinyan Guide: Snow-Tombed Starsilver

Snow-Tombed Starsilver is another excellent weapon to utilize. Physical damage is the additional stat, therefore it’s ideal for physical DPS setups. When assaulting an adversary with a normal or modified attack, the probability of generating and dropping an Icicle on them rises by 60%. This strike has an AoE damage of 80%. Cryo gives 200 percent attack damage to enemies when it impacts them. The assault happens just once every ten seconds.

Xinyan’s Constellations

Xinyan is a fantastic DPS character, but with her pyro shield, she can provide some helpful support — being able to use at least two of these shields is expected for most four-stars.

  • C1 – If you are focused on critical hit damage, this is an excellent constellation. Xinyan’s charge and normal attack speed are boosted by 5% for five seconds when she lands a crit, which happens once every five seconds.
  • C2 – Xinyan’s Riff Revelation now produces a shield on level 3 and has a critical damage percentage of 100%.
  • C3 – It is possible to increase Sweeping Fervor to level 15.
  • C4 – The amount of pyro resistance an opponent has is reduced by 15% for 12 seconds when Sweeping Fervor is activated.
  • C5 – Level 15 can be reached in Rift Revolution.
  • C6 – Attacks now gain a bonus equivalent to 50% of Xinyan’s defense stat, and charged attacks no longer consume 30% more stamina.

The 4-star craftable prototype Archaic is a great weapon

With the Prototype Archaic, you can get free refinements thanks to its 4-star craftability. If normal and charged attacks are used in a small area of effect, you have a 50% chance of doing 240% attack damage to an enemy. However, it can only happen once every 15 seconds.

If you are using support build then go for Emblem of Severed Fate

In order to maximize the shield ability in a support build, we recommend the Emblem of Severed Fate set. By wearing four pieces of this set, you receive an energy recharge buff of 20%, which in turn increases your elemental burst damage by 25% of your energy recharge. Using this method, you gain a maximum damage buff of 75%. As for the sands, the cup should have a physical damage bonus, and the hat should have a crit rate or damage bonus.

Genshin Impact Xinyan Guide: The Bell

You can also use the Bell as a powerful weapon. You get a shield in response to taking damage that absorbs up to 20% of your max health when you take damage. It lasts for up to 10 seconds before breaking. You can trigger it every 45 seconds. Attacks are increased by 12 percent while the shield is active.

The Unforged will help you a lot in shield ability

The Unforged is a fantastic pick for a support build that makes advantage of the shield ability. It increases shield strength by 20% and provides a bonus stat of attack percentage. When an attack is applied to a target, it increases by 4% for 8 seconds and can stack up to 5 times. While you are shielded, your attack boost bonus is increased by 100%.

With the battle pass, you can get the Serpent Spine

Crit rate is the bonus stat of Serpent Spine and it increases the damage dealt by 6% every 4 seconds the character is on the field as well as the damage taken by 3%. You can stack this bonus stat up to five times.

What is the best Artifacts?

You should go for the Noblesse Oblige set and the Bloodstained Chivalry set if you are going for a physical burst DPS build. There will be a 20% increase in physical damage and a 25% increase in elemental burst damage. For the sand, you should have attack%, physical damage bonus for the cup, and crit damage or crit rate for the hat.
