Genshin Impact Guide
Xiao Build Artifact
This Page provides the Best Xiao Build information.
Xiao is a Yaksha Adeptus that defends Liyue. Also heralded as the “Conqueror of Demons” or “Vigilant Yaksha.”
Xiao is the most powerful Anemo DPS in Genshin Impact at the moment. Xiao is generally accepted to be a Main DPS, so DPS Build is mostly used by travelers.
Xiao can help the party in different ways. Not only his Strong AoE ability, but also his passive ability helps the party member to save the stamina consumption. Crit Rate and ATK are the most important stats for Xiao, so the DPS Build will also help travelers to stack the Crit Rate and ATK for Xiao.
In Genshin Impact, Xiao is a 5 Stars rarity Anemo character currently in S tier.
