Xiao is a 5-star Anemo Polearm character in Genshin Impact. He specializes in lightning-fast attacks and has an acrobatic combat style. However, as Anemo is a bad element for DPS in general, building a team around him is a lot less straightforward. In this article, we are going to showcase the best Xiao team comp for high DPS.

Xiao is probably one of the few Anemo characters who can deal damage without high constellations.

1. Best Xiao Team Comp (High End)

Being Anemo, Xiao is suitable to team up with a lot of characters, with these 5 being the best.

  • Xiao + Jean + Albedo + Zhongli
CharacterRoleArtifact SetConstellation Level
XiaoMain DPSViridescent Venerer(2) + Gladiator's Finale(2)Any
JeanHealerViridescent Venerer(4)C4 (not required)
AlbedoSub DPS/SupportHusk of Opulent Dreams(4)Any
ZhongliShield/SupportTenacity of the Millelith(4)Any

In this team comp, Xiao is the main DPS, with teammates maximizing the damage of his elemental burst, Bane of all Evil. It allows Xiao to do consecutive Plunge Attacks that deal wide AOE Anemo DMG. Overall, the best weapon for Xiao in all builds is the Primordial Jade Winged-Spear, which increases a lot of ATK and damage dealt. The Deathmatch is the best 4 star alternative.

Xiao Zhongli
Zhongli's shield is useful in a lot of lineups, including best Xiao team comps.

Jean is a Healer and battery for Xiao to spam his burst. Furthermore, her C4 can also lower enemy Anemo resistance, which increases Xiao's damage.

Albedo pairs with Zhongli for elemental resonance. His Elemental Skill DMG is maximized by the full Husk of Opulent Dreams set.

Zhongli protects the team with his shield and increases their ATK with the full Tenacity of the Millelith set.

2. Xiao Team Comp With Raiden (High Tier)

  • Xiao + Raiden Shogun + Bennett + Zhongli

Raiden ShogunMain DPSEmblem of Severed Fate(4)Any
BennettHealer/SupportNoblesse Oblige(4)C5
ZhongliShield/ SupportTenacity of the Millelith(4)Any

This team is a Double Core lineup with Xiao being the sub DPS character. Overall, Raiden would be the main DPS in the team, who need to be switched in every time Xiao's burst is on cooldown. Raiden Shogun is the key piece of this lineup, as she can boost Xiao's Energy Recharge by her burst while increasing all teammates' burst damage with her elemental skill.

Raiden Shogun is the reason this comp is one of the most effective Xiao lineups.

Bennett's Elemental Burst provides a huge ATK buff and healing to other members.

Zhongli protects the team with his shield and increases their ATK with the full Tenacity of the Millelith set.

3. Xiao Mid-Tier Pyro Team Comp (No 5 Stars)

  • Xiao + Sucrose + Xiangling + Bennett

SucroseSub DPSViridescent Venerer(4)C6
XianglingSub DPSEmblem of Severed Fate(4)C6
BennettHealer/SupportNoblesse Oblige(4)C5

This is a lineup geared toward dolphin or F2p players, as all other characters except for Xiao are 4 stars. Similar to the first Xiao team comp, he is the main DPS in this lineup, and the Pyro element from Xiangling is Swirled by Xiao.

Best Build For Xiao Genshin
Having Xiao spam his plunging attacks is probably the most effective way to use him.

Sucrose provides elemental mastery bonuses to boost the damage of the whole team alongside Xiao's Swirl. She also acts as a battery for recharge of Xiao's burst

Xiangling's and Bennett are burst support characters, providing damage, attack buff and healing.

4. Xiao Mid-Tier Cryo Team Comp (No 5 Stars)

  • Xiao + Sucrose + Chongyun + Diona

SucroseSub DPSViridescent Venerer(4)C6
ChongyunSub DPSBlizzard Strayer(4)C6
DionaHealer/SupportMaiden Beloved(4)C5

This lineup is fairly similar to the previous Pyro lineup, but with Cryo instead. Chongyun's Elemental Skill at C2 can lower CDs of Xiao's Elemental Burst. Allowing Xiao to deal damage more often. Sucrose and Diona support Xiao with their buffs and shield.

5. Xiao Team Comp F2P

  • Xiao + Barbara + Traveler (Anemo) + Noelle

This lineup is designed for complete f2p and new players who only have Xiao as a sole 5 star. This is how you can make Xiao more effective even with a free squad.

CharacterRoleArtifact SetConstellation

Traveler (Anemo)BatteryViridescent Venerer(4)Any
NoelleSupportHusk of Opulent Dreams(4)Any

Xiao has good synergy with Barbara's water ring. Noelle can improve Xiao's survivability with her shields while Anemo Traveler can provide energy enabling Xiao to cast his burst easily.

Barbara actually has decent synergy with Xiao.
