Keeping up with the Genshin Impact meta can be difficult.

For those who don’t want to get bogged down in all the nitty-gritty details of the various Genshin Impact characters, it’s easy to focus on just a handful.

Yes, Venti, Diluc, and Hu Tao are highly valuable, but they are also extremely limited.

Until their Wish pity kicks in, most players will have to settle for more common characters.

In other words, the number of stars a person has does not always correlate to their power.

In certain cases, lower-tier units are as powerful as their five-star cousins.

Xingqiu, a character in Hydro, is a great illustration of this.

When it comes to characters, Xingqiu serves as a reminder that uniqueness isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

One of the most strong and adaptable Genshin Impact supports despite being a typical four-star.

Because he’s weaker than other DPS troops and his healing can be minor, some may be put off by this.

He is, nonetheless, extremely adaptable.

Liyue’s Juvenile Galant can develop into a powerful being in a variety of ways.

Xingqiu’s Talent Overview

Elemental Burst takes precedence over Elemental Skill in terms of talent.

Even so, he’s a valuable fighter who’s being squandered as a mere wingman.

As a result, the Guhua Disciple should be used as a Genshin Impact sub-DPS instead.

Xingqiu’s Normal Attack should not be taken into account while constructing him for this role.

Xingqiu is outclassed in terms of raw power, hence he shouldn’t be the team’s primary DPS unit.

Instead, his Elemental Skill and Burst are all that players need to be aware of to beat him effectively.

Elemental Skill – Guhua Sword: Fatal Rainscreen

Xingqiu uses a Hydro attack to inflict double the damage on the adversary.

A rain of swords will fall all around the active character, reducing the damage they take (up to 53 percent ).

The Swords given to him by his Skill also increase his resilience to interruption, making him a combination machine.

Hydropathic’s Rain Swords are able to regenerate a small amount of their HP after they are disbanded (either destroyed or the duration ended).

He can’t stop Barbara or Noelle from healing, but he can still use it to great effect.

When the Sword vanishes, it restores 6% of Xingqiu’s maximum health to the currently active character (for each Sword).

Elemental Burst – Guhua Sword: Raincutter

Unbreakable Rain Swords are summoned by Xingqiu, reducing damage indefinitely.

Sword Rain is triggered when the active character performs a Normal Attack, delivering Hydro damage to the opponent.

Xingqiu’s Elemental Burst comes in handy when it comes to putting together Hydro reactions.

Electro-Charged will be set off multiple times if Raincutter is activated before switching to an Electro character.

In addition, he can use his Skill to bulk up the weaker teammates around him.

After his first rise in the ranks, this style of play truly takes hold.

However, Xingqiu’s Elemental Burst’s strongest feature is its ability to reset the Internal Cooldown on each strike.

A character in Genshin Impact must wait two and a half seconds or three hits before they can apply an Element to the enemy again.

He can quickly reset this Internal Cooldown by summoning three Sword Rains each time with his Raincutter, allowing for more Elemental Reactions to occur.

Best Weapons For Xingqiu

A four-star weapon is the greatest option for Xingqiu’s best defense.

Unfortunately, it’s still a Wish-only item.

The Sacrificial Sword, one of Genshin Impact’s most popular weapon series, is the greatest sword for Xingqiu in Genshin Impact.

There is a chance that the cooldown for the Guhua Disciple’s Skill will finish immediately after he inflicts damage.

As a result of this ability, Xingqiu is one of the finest Batteries in Genshin Impact, delivering double the damage and producing twice as much energy.

Mistsplitter Reforged and Primordial Jade Cutter are two highly offensive Genshin Impact weapons that can be used to maximize Xingqiu’s raw damage output.

Because they are both five-star weapons, finding either of them can be a challenge.

This new burst of DPS is going to be huge for Xingqiu’s personal DPS.

One thing to keep in mind is that the Guhua Disciple may need aid in filling his Elemental Burst with these weapons.

Best Artifacts For Xingqiu

The four-piece Noblesse Oblige is commonly paired with Xingqiu.

His Elemental Burst gets a boost in damage from this set, which also helps the rest of the team.

Other options include:

  1. Four-piece Emblem of Severed Fate: The best option to maximize Xingqiu’s Burst damage.
  2. Two-piece Noblesse Oblige + two-piece Heart of Depths: The second-best option to boost the damage of the Guhua Disciple’s ultimate.

Artifact main stat:

  • Timepiece: ATK
  • Goblet: Hydro DMG Bonus
  • Circlet: Critical Rate or Damage

Sub-stat priority:

  1. Energy Recharge (Players must ensure Xingqiu has 100% Burst uptime. Ignore Energy Recharge stat if the uptime requirement is already fulfilled)
  2. Critical Rate and Damage
  3. ATK

Hydro DPS

The Xingqiu build shown here can be used as a DPS if you just made your account and don’t have any other characters to fall back on.

There are two Gladiator’s Finale pieces and two Heart of Depth pieces needed to complete this build.

Hydro DPS excels in the following areas:

  • Gladiator’s set provides a 5% increase in attack power.

In order to use his burst as soon as possible if you already have him, be sure to obtain this build.

You’ll need two Scholar’s and two Noblesse Oblige pieces for this construction.

Sharp Rain Swords

Because of the artifact set, you’ll be using on Xingqiu, this is an especially effective construct.

These four pieces are from a set called Noblesse Oblige.

If you don’t have another team member who has the four pieces, this is the best option.

Among the many things “Sharp Rainswords” excels at:

Benefit from the burst damage done by Xingqiu.

After casting his Burst ability, your entire party will receive a boost in damage.

End Game Xingqiu

Since the release of the Heart of Depth set, Xingqiu has used this build the most.

Two pieces of the Heart of Depth set and two pieces of the Noblesse Oblige set are required.

Due to its emphasis on Xingqiu’s elemental damage and burst, this build is particularly effective.

Xingqiu’s greatest strength is:

You will be utilizing Xingqiu primarily to deal as much damage as possible with your Rain Swords (Burst Ability) and Guhua Style: Fatal Rainscreen (Elemental Ability).

New Power

Since the new region of Inazuma has come, and with it, new artifact sets, the name of this build speaks for itself.

For Xingqiu’s purposes, I believe that combining the four pieces of the new Emblem of Severe Fate is the most effective use of the new item.

To put it another way, your burst will be constantly spammed, with a significant increase in damage.

New Power excels at the following things.

A 20% boost in energy replenishment.

Each 25 percent increase in Energy Recharge Attack from the four parts adds up to a maximum of 75% Damage boost.

Best Teammates For Xingqiu

Hu Tao, the director of Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, is now Xingqiu’s strongest pair in Genshin Impact.

When combined with Xingqiu’s DPS, Hu Tao is elevated to a whole new level.

On nearly every blow, Hu Tao can activate the Vaporize reaction with the Guhua Disciple, increasing her damage by at least 1.5 times.

You can use Tartaglia as a Hydro DPS character if Xingqiu has his second constellation unlocked.

Short-lived hydro damage increases for foes hit by sword rain.

The Soothing Water resonance is also activated by two Hydro characters, resulting in a 30% increase in healing.

As previously said, Xingqiu shouldn’t be the primary healer, but this is an excellent benefit for the person who is.

Aside from that, Genshin Impact’s ever-popular National Team features some of the strongest characters to combine with Xingqiu in the Spiral Abyss.

They include:
