Team Compositions Constellation Guide

There are different types of DPS in Genshin Impact. For example, Hu Tao is an excellent single-target damage dealer, while Childe is an AoE beast. However, there’s also someone like Xiao who’s great in AoE, can Swirl havoc all around the battlefield, and deal high damage all at the same time.

However, although Xiao build in Genshin Impact is rather straightforward, creating a team for him isn’t much so. Xiao has issues that players need to handle if they wish for him to survive and deal the damage he promises to deliver. For instance, the Yaksha requires a battery and a shielder or healer to perform.

Xiao Build – Best Weapon

xiao-using-primordial-jade-winged-spear-in-genshin-impact

The best weapon for Xiao in Genshin Impact is the one that gives the most ATK and Crit stats to him.

  1. Primordial Jade Winged-Spear: It’s the best weapon for Xiao since he’s a main DPS and will take so much field time. So having Primordial Jade stacking ATK% with Vermillion Hereafter is going to take Xiao’s DMG to the next level.
  2. Staff of Homa: Homa is a great weapon for Xiao and any Polearm DPS unit in Genshin Impact. Xiao can even activate Homa’s passive since he keeps losing HP anyway.
  3. Vortex Vanquisher: Xiao will greatly benefit from the amount of ATK granted by Vortex Vanquisher. But he must be shielded at all times to trigger the Polearm effect.
  4. Calamity Queller: Xiao has the highest amount of Base ATK and runs with a Vermillion Hereafter set that continuously grants him ATK% as long as he’s losing HP. So, having Calamity Queller’s whopping 741 Base ATK with the continuous flowing of ATK% is great for Xiao’s DMG.
  5. Staff of the Scarlet Sands: Xiao wielding Staff of the Scarlet Sands has around 63% Crit Rate before equipping any single artifact. While the passive isn’t any good for Xiao, the amount of Crit DMG players can freely stack from the artifacts is enough reason for this Polearm to be good on him.
  6. Deathmatch: Just like Staff of the Scarlet Sands, Deathmatch grants Xiao a high Crit Rate with a small ATK% buff.
  7. Lithic Spear: Lithic Spear is a decent Polearm for Xiao since it grants Crit Rate and ATK% for every Liyue character in his party, including him.
  8. Missive Windspear: Missive Windspear is a good F2P R5 weapon for Xiao since it grants him a good amount of ATK% from its Sub-stat and passive.
  9. Blackcliff Pole: Xiao can benefit from Blackcliff’s Crit DMG and passive that grants him a continuous flow of ATK% as long as he’s defeating enemies.
  10. Engulfing Lightning: Engulfing helps Xiao get his Elemental Burst faster while granting him a little bit of ATK% from its passive. The amount of ATK% given is dependent on Xiao’s ER, which can’t be high or else it replaces other stats without giving any real benefit.
  11. Skyward Spine: Skyward has the same issue of Engulfing, yet, it’s a good Polearm overall when there are no other options.
  12. White Tassel: Even if the passive buffs Xiao’s Normal attacks, keep using his Plunge attacks. Since it increases Xiao’s Crit Rate, White Tassel is a good beginner weapon for Xiao in Genshin Impact.

Xiao Build – Best Artifact

xiao-best-artifact-in-genshin-impact

The best artifacts for Xiao in Genshin Impact are the ones that enhance his ATK% or Anemo DMG.

  • 4-Vermillion Hereafter: Vermillion Hereafter is the best set for Xiao in Genshin Impact. It perfectly complements Xiao’s gameplay since it keeps granting him more ATK% as long as he’s losing HP, which is the usual for Xiao.
  • 4-Desert Pavilion Chronicle: Desert Pavilion is a very close contender to Vermillion since it insanely buffs Xiao’s DMG overall. The only condition Xiao has to fulfill to get the buff is by Charge attacking enemies every few seconds.
  • 2-Anemo DMG +15% + 2-Anemo DMG +15%: If players couldn’t collect a perfect set of Vermillion or Desert Pavilion, then going the easy road of double 15% Anemo is very viable in Genshin Impact.
  • 2-Anemo DMG +15% + 2-ATK +18%: Don’t hesitate to add a set like Gladiator to add +18% ATK instead of the 15% Anemo DMG as Xiao can still be super effective within this build.

Xiao Talent Priority In Genshin Impact

xiao-talents-in-genshin-impact

Xiao talent priority in Genshin Impact is Normal Attack > Elemental Burst > Elemental Skill. Although Xiao’s Burst grants a DMG bonus for his plunge, the primary scaling still lies in his Normal Attack talent, which makes it the top priority over his ultimate.

Xiao Talent Level Recommendation

  • Normal Attack: 10
  • Elemental Skill: 8 to 10
  • Elemental Burst: 10
