She is the Head Chef at the Wanmin Restaurant and runs it alongside her father Chef Mao. As a chef, Xiangling isn't afraid to try out different recipes or "exotic" ingredients... making her dishes sometimes quite unique.
Normal Attack Performs up to five consecutive spear strikes.
Charged Attack Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward, dealing damage to opponents along the way.
Plunging Attack Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
Constellation Level 2, Oil Meets Fire: "The last attack in a Normal Attack sequence applies the Implode status onto the opponent for 2s. An explosion will occur once this duration ends, dealing 75% of Xiangling's ATK as AoE Pyro DMG."
Flame DMG will snapshot Xiangling's stats on cast and will not be affected by changes in Xiangling's stats that occur afterwards.
Xiangling's Passive Talent 1, Crossfire, affects Guoba Attack as follows: "Increases the flame range of Guoba by 20%."
Xiangling's Passive Talent 2, Beware, It's Super Hot!, affects Guoba Attack as follows: "When Guoba Attack's effects end, Guoba leaves a chili pepper on the spot where it disappeared. Picking up a chili pepper increases ATK by 10% for 10s."
Displaying her mastery over both fire and polearms, Xiangling sends a Pyronado whirling around her. The Pyronado will move with your character for the ability's duration, dealing Pyro DMG to all opponents in its path.
Pyronado DMG will snapshot Xiangling's stats at the third swing during casting and will not be affected by changes in Xiangling's stats that occur afterwards.
Assuming Talent level 1: Xiangling will do 3 Pyro "swing" hits in a small area around her at the start of the skill (72% + 88% + 110% = 270%) damage, before summoning the actual Pyronado which deals 112% each orbit. If Xiangling's 4th constellation is not unlocked, the Pyronado will hit enemies 7-8 times (a small amount of anticlockwise movement is needed to get the 8th hit in before the Pyronado vanishes).
At Talent level 1, this totals 1166% damage: 72% + 88% + 110% + (112% × 8)
The initial "swing" hits have normal Internal Cooldown (e.g. usually only the first one of them will be able to trigger Vaporize if there is Hydro on enemies), but after that Pyronado has no ICD on elemental application and will be able to consistently react on every hit.
Constellation Level 3, Deepfry: Increases this talent's level by 3 and raises its maximum level to 15.
Constellation Level 6, Condensed Pyronado: "For the duration of Pyronado, all party members receive a 15% Pyro DMG Bonus." While the buff is also granted to Xiangling, it does not affect Xiangling's casted Pyronado.
When Guoba Attack's effects end, Guoba leaves a chili pepper on the spot where it disappeared. Picking up a chili pepper increases ATK by 10% for 10s.
The chili pepper lasts on the field for 10 seconds only.
The ATK buff only applies to the character who picked up the chili pepper. It will not carry over to another character that is switched in.
The ATK buff is not lost upon switching out — if the character who picked up the chili pepper is switched out, then switched back in during its 10-second duration, the ATK buff will still be effective.
Old: Hee-hee, I'm proud to call her a fellow chef! She hasn't swung by the Wanmin Restaurant in ages, though. Maybe our teacher is trying to protect her from me or something... Last time we hung out I was about to tuck into some fresh raw octopus from the Sea of Clouds, but not only did she stop me from eating it, she sent our teacher to tell me off too! Hmm... I'm older, so I'd always seen myself as the senior chef out of the two of us, but sometimes, I'm really not so sure...
New: Hee-hee, I'm proud to call her my junior! She hasn't swung by the Wanmin Restaurant in ages, though. Maybe master is trying to protect her from me or something... Last time we hung out, I was about to dig into some fresh raw octopus from the Sea of Clouds, but not only did she stop me from eating it, she sent master to tell me off too! Ugh... Honestly, sometimes it feels like I'm the one who gets treated like the junior...
