Xinyan ★★★★ – Pyro
| WEAPON: CLAYMORE| ROLE: DPS | SKILL: FORCEFIELD SHIELD |
Rock ‘n’ roll is an avant-garde art in Liyue Harbor and Xinyan is the pioneer in this field. She rebels against ossified prejudices, using her music and passionate singing to awaken dazed souls fatigued by worldly matters. If you get the chance, do not miss out on her next performance!
Pyro characters are one of the most sought after in the game, and if you didn’t manage to get your hands on Diluc Xinyan will be a great addition to your team. Meshing really well with Electro, Cryo and Water (coincidentally my main team) a main DPS Pyro character will bring in the pain allowing you to farm most of the world’s bossess.
|Dance on Fire||Normal / Charged Attack||Normal Attack: Perform up to 4 consecutive strikes.|
Charged Attack: Drains Stamina over time to perform continuous spinning attacks against all nearby enemies. At end of the sequence, perform a more powerful slash.
Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
|Sweeping Fervor||Elemental Skill||Xinyan brandishes her instrument, dealing Pyro DMG on nearby enemies, forming a shield made out of her audience’s passion.|
The shield’s DMG Absorption scales based on Xinyan’s DEF and on the number of enemies hit.
• Hitting 0-1 enemies grants Shield Level 1: Ad Lib.
• Hitting 2 enemies grants Shield Level 2: Lead-In.
• Hitting 3 or More enemies grants Shield Level 3: Rave, which will also deal intermittent Pyro DMG to nearby enemies.
The shield has the following special properties:
• When unleashed, it infuses Xinyan with Pyro.
• It has 250% DMG Absorption effectiveness against Pyro DMG.
|Riff Revolution||Elemental Burst||Strumming rapidly, Xinyan launches nearby enemies and deals Physical DMG to them, hyping up the crowd. The sheer intensity of the atmosphere will cause explosions that deal Pyro DMG to nearby enemies.|
|A Rad Recipe||Passive Talent||When a Perfect Cooking is achieved on a DEF-boosting dish, Xinyan has a 12% chance to obtain double the product.|
|The Show Goes On, Even Without An Audience||Passive Talent||Decreases the number of enemies Sweeping Fervor must hit to trigger each level of shielding.|
• Shield Level 2: Lead-in requirement reduced to 1 enemy hit.
• Shield Level 3: Rave requirement reduced to 2 enemies hit or more.
|Now That’s Rock and Roll||Passive Talent||Character shielded by Sweeping Fervor deal 15% increased Physical DMG.|
A rocker from Liyue, her normal attacks look pretty standard for most claymore users. But her Elemental Skill swings her guitar-axe-thing in a wide circle. For each enemy it hits, Xinyan gets an increasingly stronger Pyro shield. For her Elemental Burst, she plays a-rockin’ guitar riff that knocks enemies back and sets the ground around her on fire.
