So you want to figure out how to rock out harder with Liyue’s sole rock ‘n’ roll musician, Xinyan, to light up the stage! Look no further because this is the right guide for you.


Character Type: Support / DPS

Rarity: 4 Stars

Weapon: Claymore

Element: Pyro 

Xinyan In-Game Lore

Xinyan is a rock 'n' roll aficionado who has returned to Liyue to spread music throughout the nation. Even though she has had problems expanding her reputation for a variety of reasons, she remains undeterred and continues to perform, appreciating all who attend her shows. Her Pyro Vision endows her with a fiery demeanor. She enjoys standing out in her own unique way, but many people think she's strange and/or terrifying as a result. Despite being aware of this, her efforts to make herself more presentable have proven difficult.

Fighters Guide

Xinyan's physical damage-boosting shield gives her a lot more versatility than a standard Pyro DPS. If that sounds cool, you can choose to focus on her Elemental Burst's Physical Damage and Pyro AoE, or the Elemental Skill's Shield-based bonuses. Although many complain about her split scaling, with enough time (and resin) you can build her into a powerful Main DPS or Sub DPS.
