Xiangling is one of the best characters in the game of Genshin Impact. However, the players are able to get her without using gacha pulls or spending money. Here’s how.
Getting Xiangling in Genshin Impact
Xiangling is one of the best characters in Genshin Impact. She can be acquired for free in the Spiral Abyss without worrying about gacha pulls, spending real money, or having good luck. For those who want to unlock Spiral Abyss, first you need to reach Adventurer Rank 20 by exploring the world, opening the chests, completing the quests, and more. After the Spiral Abyss is unlocked, the next step is getting there. The Spiral Abyss is discovered on the Musk Reef. You will be able to reach it through a portal on Cape Oath, exactly near the southeastern tip of Mondstadt.
The next step that players must do is making it through Chamber 3, Floor 3 of the Spiral Abyss. Apparently, each Chamber has three floors. It means the players will need to go through and complete nine challenges to get Xiangling freely. The challenges are timed battles. Sometimes, it can be really grueling, especially if the characters of the players are below level 45 or 50. The players are able to select a bonus at the start of each round, but they will not have access to healing items and need to keep the same four characters the entire time. It will be a big challenge, however it may be more enticing than spending money and worrying about rerolling for characters.
Developer miHoYo have already teased that more characters may be unlocked through a similar method in future updates. For now, this is a free method to get Xiangling in Genshin Impact. The Spiral Abyss will be able to be a challenge, but it keeps players from spending money or worrying about gacha pulls.
Talking about how to get Xiangling in Genshin Impact, now we also want to explain the abilities of Xiangling and the best build for Xiangling. Just continue reading the following text.
The abilities of Genshin Impact Xiangling
Xiangling has a quick attacks and a charge attack which causes her to spiral forward. Xiangling’s basic skill summons Guoba the Panda who eats a chili and breathes fire between bites. She is clever to get targets correctly including nearby fire totems or crates that need to be destroyed. Her ultimate is Pyronado which summons a whirling disk of fire around her, hitting all enemies in its path. This is really useful against opponents with the shields.

The best build for Genshin Impact Xiangling
The most obvious way to build Xiangling is to focus on pyro damage and reducing skill cooldowns. You will be able to build her either as your primary or secondary DPS.
There are two four-star weapons which we recommend for Xiangling. The Crescent Pike can boost damage whenever you pick up an Elemental Orb. Prototype Grudge can boost damage once you use an Elemental Skill. The first one is better once you do DPS as Xiangling, while the second one is better once you cast an ability and switch.

Additionally, normal and charged attack hits on enemies have a 50 percent chance to trigger a vacuum blade which deals 40 percent of attack as DMD in a small AOE. For your information, this effect can occur no more than once every two seconds.

Normal Attacks can deal an additional 160/200/240/280/320% damage. For note: the effect occur once every 10 seconds.
