Why should you get Xiangling in Genshin Impact?

In Genshin Impact, Xiangling is the head chef at Liyue’s Wanmin Restaurant. She fancies making spicy dishes and usually experiments with exotic ingredients to come up with new surprising food. Although her use of dubious food items can sometimes result in not-so-pleasant results, the skills are what make the character desirable. Here’s why we should get Xiangling:

1. Makes enemies flinch

This character attacks with a strike flurry and can flinch the opponents, making them stop attacking temporarily. What’s more, as she attacks non-stop, she can work extremely well with items that boost auto-attack.

As she has one of the speediest attacks in Genshin Impact, you can pull off diverse combos as well as attack variations. Because of this, Xiangling owns high mobility and is amazing at evading.
