If you were looking for good Genshin Impact support, you have come to the right place. Xingqiu is a Hydro support capable of healing and boosting his allies with his element to take advantage of elemental reactions, you hit the jackpot. Xingqiu will fulfill this role wonderfully. It's a fairly balanced defensive and offensive asset that will find a place in many of your teams, if you play around elemental reactions . He is clearly close to the top of the basket made up of the best characters in the game.

To play alongside:


Xingqiu pairs well with Pyro claymore wielder, Diluc. Defensively you will benefit from the shield of swords which will reduce the damage suffered while healing you with each hit received. Offensively, it's the elemental reactions between fire and water that will greatly increase your damage.


Chongyun's elemental skill turns normal melee attacks into DMG Cryo , then it's easy to freeze your opponents with Xingqiu's Hydro skills. The frost elemental reaction will then trap an enemy in ice and immobilize it. When attacking a frozen enemy, it is possible to break the ice if your attack is powerful enough dealing additional damage.


Klee's normal attacks will make it very easy to trigger the evaporation elemental reaction. The latter increases the damage of Hydro and Pyro attacks. (x1.5 for Pyro damage and x2 for Hydro damage). With her Infinite Spark passive giving her teammates a massive elemental energy regen, you can easily switch between DMG Hydro and Pyro for a massive damage boost.

Hu Tao

Hu Tao is a very good main DPS, combined with a Hydro character, his damage only becomes more powerful thanks to the evaporation effect.

Of course, these characters are only examples and do not constitute all the playable characters with Xingqiu but just a small representation of what you can do. Your imagination will allow you to create your own teams and test according to your preferences.
