Build Xiao DPS Genshin Impact, Recommendation of the Best Weapons and Artifacts

Build Xiao DPS Genshin Impact, Recommendation of the Best Weapons and Artifacts

Xiao is skilled at using polearm weapons and has Vision Anemo. This type of youth attack focuses more on Normal Attack, Charge Attack and Plunge Attack, aka all things related to Whirlwind Thrust Talent. Xiao’s Elemental Skills and Burst Skills are more utility, which means they provide support and buffs to Xiao.

Already hockey got Xiao but don’t know what the build is like? You are in the right place because the author will share build recommendations for Xiao Genshin Impact, from weapons to Artifacts.

Build DPS Xiao

As mentioned earlier, Xiao shines when you make the most of the Whirlwind Thrust Talent (Normal Attack, Charge Attack, Plunge Attack). You could say that most of Xiao’s damage sources came from these talents. Xiao’s Elemental Skill and Burst Skill are more about providing support and buffs (and debuffs too) for Whirlwind Thrust Talent.

Xiao’s Elemental Skill, Lemniscatic Wind Cycling, made him move quickly in a straight line. If you nudge an enemy, this ability will damage Anemo and 3 elemental particles. Can be used twice in a row.

For Elemental Burst, Bane of All Evil, Xiao changes to Yaksha mode and wears a mask. The effect is that he jumps higher, his attack power increases and is wider, and his attack changes to Anemo element. However, you need to know that Bane of All Evil will reduce Xiao’s HP while active. So, pay attention to this quiet young man’s HP before using his main skill.


Most Recommended

Primordial Jade Winged-Spear (5✰): When attacking, increases ATK by 3.2% for 6 seconds, maximum 7 stacks. This effect can only be triggered every 0.3 seconds. When it reaches the maximum stack, DMG generated increases by 12%.

This weapon was indeed made especially for Xiao. The effects of the Primordial Jade Winged-Spear were perfectly synchronized with this Yaksha Anemo’s swift and barrage of attacks.

Skyward Spine (5✰): Increases CRIT Rate by 8% and increases Normal ATK SPD by 12%. Normal and Charged Attacks have a 50% chance to trigger a vacuum blade dealing 40% DMG in low AoE. This effect can only be activated every 2 seconds.

Second weapon if you don’t have Primordial Jade Winged-Spear. With this Skyward Spine, Xiao’s fast attacks are even faster. The effects of the weapon will also activate frequently, considering that Xiao will constantly issue Normal Attacks.

Another choice

Lithic Spear (4✰): When a Normal Attack enters, there is a 20% chance for the next 10 seconds for the DMG of the next Charged Attack to increase by 40%.

Deathmatch (4✰): If there are at least two enemies close by, ATK and DEF are increased by 16%. If there are less than 2 nearby enemies, ATK increases by 24%.


The most recommended Artifact array for Xiao DPS is:

  • Timepiece: ATK%;

  • Goblet: Anemo DMG Bonus%/ATK%;

  • Crown: Crit DMG%/Rate%.

The best sub-stats on each Artifact are Crit Rate%, Crit DMG%, ATK% and ATK.

Gladiator’s Finale + Viridescent Veneer Set:

  • 2 sets: Attack +18%;

  • 2 sets: Anemo DMG bonus +15%.

The Artifact Gladiator’s Finale and Viridescent Venerer combined set is the best for Xiao. Xiao is in dire need of the bonus Anemo DMG, considering his Elemental Burst he changes elemental attacks to Anemo.

Viridescent Veneer Set

  • 2 sets: Anemo DMG bonus +15%;

  • 4 sets: Increases Swirl damage by 60%. Reduces enemy’s elemental resistance to elements inserted into Swirl by 40% for 10 seconds.

This Artifact Set is most useful if you often play with other people. For example, a party in the Artifact or Talent Domain.

Gladiator’s Final Set:

  • 2 sets: Attack +18%;

  • 4 sets: If the user of this artifact uses Sword, Claymore, or Polearm, it will increase Normal Attack DMG by 35%.

Talent Priority

A lot of resources are needed to increase the Talent level, while it takes time to collect them. Therefore, it is recommended to prioritize Xiao Talent as follows:

  • Whirlwind Thrust (Normal Attack, Charge Attack, Plunge Attack);

  • Bane of All Evil (Elemental Burst);

  • Lemniscatic Wind Cycling (Elemental Skill).
