Highlights
Xiangling is an excellent Pyro off-field DPS in Genshin Impact who can work well in Vaporize and Melt teams.
She is commonly used in Sucrose National and Raiden National teams, which are top meta teams for the Spiral Abyss.
Players can unlock Xiangling for free by clearing Floor 3 Chamber 3 of the Spiral Abyss.

Xiangling is a top meta unit in Genshin Impact that you can get for free from the Spiral Abyss. She is commonly used in various Vaporize and Melt teams and can be quite powerful in Mono Pyro teams as well. She was overlooked when the game first came out but after players discovered how powerful she can be in the popular “National” team, she cemented herself in the Spiral Abyss meta. If you are planning to pull for her or want to build her, here is a rundown of Xiangling’s Talents, Constellations and Passives.

Genshin Impact Xiangling: Should You Pull?

Xiangling can be obtained by clearing Floor 3 Chamber 3 of the Spiral Abyss. But to fully unlock her power, you need Constellations which require you to pull on her banners or obtain Constellations from the Starglitter shop. Xiangling is available every year in January and July so you may want to save some of your Starglitter to get her.

Unlike 5 stars, there is no guarantee that you will be able to snag a 4-star of your choice from banners. There are instances of people spending over a hundred wishes and not getting the 4-star that they need so you should never pull for a low rarity unit unless you are okay with getting the featured 5-star or using up your pity.

Genshin Impact Xiangling: Talents

Elemental Skill - Guoba Attack: Summons Guoba, who will continuously breathe fire at opponents, dealing AoE Pyro DMG.

  • Cooldown: 12 seconds

Elemental Burst - Pyronado: Displaying her mastery over both fire and polearms, Xiangling sends a Pyronado whirling around her.

The Pyronado will move with your character for the ability's duration, dealing Pyro DMG to all opponents in its path.

  • Duration: 10 seconds

  • Cooldown: 20 seconds

  • Energy Cost: 80

Genshin Impact Xiangling: Constellations

C1 - Crispy Outside, Tender Inside: Opponents hit by Guoba's attacks have their Pyro RES reduced by 15% for 6s.

C2 - Oil Meets Fire: The last attack in a Normal Attack sequence applies the Implode status onto the opponent for 2s. An explosion will occur once this duration ends, dealing 75% of Xiangling's ATK as AoE Pyro DMG.

C3 - Deepfry: Increases the Level of Pyronado by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.

C4 - Slowbake: Pyronado's duration is increased by 40%.

C5 - Guoba Mad: Increases the Level of Guoba Attack by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15.

C6 - Condensed Pyronado: For the duration of Pyronado, all party members receive a 15% Pyro DMG Bonus.

Genshin Impact Xiangling: Passives

Crossfire: Increases the flame range of Guoba by 20%.

Beware, It’s Super Hot: When Guoba Attack's effect ends, Guoba leaves a chili pepper on the spot where it disappeared. Picking up a chili pepper increases ATK by 10% for 10s.

Chef de Cuisine: When Xiangling cooks an ATK-boosting dish perfectly, she has a 12% chance to receive double the product.
