Demon Tamer: Guardian Yaksha
When Scourge of evil is active, descending attacks on 2 or more enemies immediately grant a stack of Lemniscate wind cycle in addition, which can be activated in the following second, even if it is not fully charged.
We recommend you mix a two piece set Shadow of the Green Hunter (Anemo) coupled with 2 parts of the set Gladiator’s curtain
At the weapon level:
- The best possible weapon for him is this Winged jade spear, available in the weapon banner. You can gradually improve your attack and also add a bonus of 12% damage.
- If you don’t have that Scion of Victory (the Battle Pass weapon) and the Blackrock Spear (previously available in store) are an excellent choice.
In terms of statistics, focus on critical damage and the critical rate, but also’ the attack‘. Try to have the attack % on your hourglass Anemo damage on your cut and critical damage on your tiara.
Xiao is therefore an anemo-lancer who is really cool in the way he is played. The concept is simple: it’s pretty classic, although it has an attack that allows him to advance on the ground or jump with his spear. However, it is by activating his ultimate ability that Ultimate Scourgethat things get more interesting. His attacks gain in range, his basic attacks do damage to Anemo, but most of all, and this is the most interesting thing, his jump becomes really excellent and allows him to chain descending attacks and gain additional mobility. Best of all, its ultimate form lasts long for a relatively short cooldown.
So you need to use Xiao with a healer to optimize his place in your group. Jean, QiQi, Barbara … it depends what you have. The other bug we could find Xiaois that he ends up being a character who really works alone and therefore doesn’t really help your other characters. You have to play Xiao assuming he only thinks of himselfand that it doesn’t really help the rest of your team if you ever change characters.
Shall we call it up?
After this GanyuWe inevitably expected to be a little disappointed Xiao Degree of damage. Not only was it tremendous damage for little investment, it was Cryo, which guaranteed excellent elemental reactions everywhere Xiao is Anemowhich is currently a little less optimized.
However, Xiao remains an excellent character! Fun to play fast and that hurts. He may not be able to use DPS because of his ultimate benefit only ability, but he is still a great choice for your team as a carry DPS. We encourage you to summon it when you can and when you get the idea of having a character Anemo as the main character of your team speaks to you. Ah, and if your healing support is excellent, Naturally ! Because he’ll need it.
