Subtitled the Juvenile Galant, Xingqiu is now available in Genshin Impact.
A sword wielder, he is aligned with the Hydro element. He's an outstanding support with a solid Elemental Burst, so this build reflects his skills in that area.
You can get Xingqiu from the Wanderlust Invocation banner.
The best weapons for Xingqiu in Genshin Impact
The Sacrificial Sword is the best option for Xingqiu, as you want maximum uptime on his Elemental Skill -- and this weapon has a high chance to reset its cooldown on use.
Another good option is the Festering Desire, a weapon that boosts Elemental Skill DMG and its CRIT rate.
After dealing damage to an opponent with an Elemental Skill, the skill has a 40/50/60/70/80% chance to end its own CD. Can only occur once every 30/26/22/19/16s.
Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 16/20/24/28/32% and Elemental Skill CRIT Rate by 6.0/7.5/9.0/10.5/12%.
The best Artifacts for Xingqiu in Genshin Impact
The best artifact set for boosting Xingqiu's Elemental Burst is the Emblem of Severed Fate, which increases the Burst DMG by a quarter of his Energy Recharge. Hence loading up on weapons and artifacts that focus on this stat.
Noblesse Oblige is also a good set in that regard, although the Burst DMG has a flat +25% cap rather than a scaling boost.

(2) Elemental Burst DMG +20%
