Genshin Impact: Xinyan Skills, Talents, and Ascension

Who's ready to rock out with Xinyan!?!

Update: March 29th

We have made a new format for all of this information, and it includes everything you need to know for Xinyan!


We also have an All Genshin Impact Characters list, that gives all available details on all characters in the game, and that includes those rumored to be coming in later updates.

Additionally, we have an All Genshin Impact Materials list, which covers all Ascension and Talent Materials currently in the game!

Here's a guide giving more information on what fiery Xinyan, one of the two characters coming can do!

Genshin Impact Xinyan Skills, Talents, and Ascension

Xinyan is a 4 Star Pyro element user who wields a Claymore as a weapon. She is coming to Genshin Impact on December 1, in a banner with Geo 5 Star user Zhongli, one of the other characters that were planned for Version 1.1. She's not yet in the game as an NPC (Non-Player Character), though she is mentioned; thank you for the YouTube comments section for this one! She is a well-known performer in the region of Liyue, where during the climax of her show, she uses pyrotechnics. Due to this, she was banned by the Liyue authorities to ensure their people's safety.

Attack Talents

Dance on Fire

  • Normal Attack
    • Performs up to 4 consecutive strikes.
  • Charged Attack
    • Consumes Stamina over time to perform a continuous spinning attack. At the end, Xinyan will perform a powerful slash.
  • Plunging Attack
    • Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies along the path dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Elemental Skill

Sweeping Fervor

Xinyan brandishes her instrument, dealing Pyro DMG on enemies in proximity, forming a shield made out of her audience's passion.

  • The shield's DMG Absorption scales based on Xinyan's DEF and on the number of enemies that were hit with Sweeping Fervor.
    • Hitting 0-1 enemies grants Shield Level 1: Ad Lib
    • Hitting 2 enemies grants Shield Level 2: Lead-In
    • Hitting 3 enemies+ grants Shield Level 3: Rave
      • Which will also deal intermitted Pyro DMG to nearby enemies.
  • The Shield has the following special properties:
    • When unleashed, it infuses Xinyan with Pyro.
    • It has 250% DMG Absorption.

Elemental Burst

Riff Revolution

By strumming rapidly, Xinyan launches nearby enemies and deals Physical DMG to them, hyping up the crowd. The sheer intensity of the atmosphere causes explosions that deal Pyro DMG to everyone in proximity.
