Guoba CDR Interaction

By: miliana#9407 Added: 2021-04-18
Finding: 4TF Xiangling and C2 Chongyun can result in 2 Guobas being deployed at the same time. Credit to Risuke#6743 for suggesting the idea.
Evidence: YouTube
Significance: It's possible to get 100%+ guoba uptime on Xiangling using 4TF. This also shows that there is nothing in the game preventing multiple Goubas from being summoned. This is unlikely to ever be optimal, but that wasn't the point of testing this.

Guoba Self Applies Pyro

By: Terrapin#8603 Added: 2021-06-25 Discussion
Finding: In line with previous evidence that was non-conclusive, it appears that Guoba actually does apply Pyro to himself whenever he attacks. If you time an AoE Anemo ability with his flame attack, it will cause a Pyro Swirl off of Guoba.
Evidence: YouTube
Significance: More information about how Guoba mechanics work, and a more precise explanation of why Guoba can cause Pyro Absorption in Anemo Bursts.

Burst Mechanics

Xiangling Burst Movement Interaction

By: ganjo#1859 Added: 2021-04-19
Finding: The hitbox of Xiangling's ultimate can hit more than once per rotation by manipulating self and enemy positioning.
Significance: It is possible to significantly boost the total damage of Xiangling's ultimate (>25%) by moving in specific patterns and utilizing enemy hitboxes to get more hits in per ult.

Pyronado Proc Frames and Interactions

By: Visc#5095, Raf#7220, CQLQRS#7853, and phaZ#6461 Added: 2022-01-05 Discussion
Finding: Xiangling Pyronado has an enemy specific lock that lasts about 36f or 0.6s or 180 degrees. It is observed to constantly deal damage in 36f intervals which correspond to half a rotation.
Significance: These data sheds light onto Pyronado mechanics and how to maximize their burst damage. It also explains how moving around an enemy in the opposite direction of the rotation can increase damage of both bursts. However, you should not move too fast or else the enemy hit box loses contact with your burst before the lock expires.

Constellation Mechanics

C2: Oil Meets Fire

Xiangling C2 damage

By: elijam#7142 Added: 2021-08-07 Discussion
Finding: Xiangling’s C2 damage instance has no ability type scaling tags.
Evidence: Testing done by Peekays#2722 Damage is consistent with and without 4HoD bonus - Video Damage is consistent with and without 2gambler bonus - Video Damage is consistent with and without 2NO bonus - Video
Significance: Damage calculations for Xiangling.

Xiangling C2 does not snapshot

By: yeow#5090 Added: 2021-09-03 Discussion
Finding: Xianglings C2 does not snapshot.
Evidence: Youtube
Significance: DMG calculation.

C6: Condensed Pyro

XL Pyronado Does Not Benefit From Her C6

By: Sayline#5959 Added: 2021-08-28 Discussion
Finding: Pyronado does not benefit from XL C6. The 3rd hit of the initial swings & Guoba, however, does benefit from her C6.
Evidence: Using iwintolose's damage calculator, Pyronado ticks were expected to do 248 damage to a level 85 Ruin Guard after C6 buffs are applied (unbuffed Pyronado ticks are at 228). Imgur (some rounding errors, but should be close enough) Looking at in-game numbers however, we see that Pyronado ticks deal the same amount of damage even after C6 buffs are applied. Youtube
Significance: Guoba > Pyronado


Pyronado Only Applies 1U To Cryo Regisvine Shield

By: Mcpie#8672 Added: 2021-06-21 Discussion
Finding: Xiangling's pyronado applies only 1U to Cryo Regisvine's shield over it's duration.
Evidence: Video Download
Significance: Don't rely on pyronado alone to destroy Cryo Regisvine's shield

Hutao and Xiangling Vape

By: Ayzel#7399 & friends Added: 2021-06-26 Discussion
Finding: With both Hu Tao and Xiangling in the same team utilizing Xingqiu to reverse vaporize their attacks, Xiangling will trigger reverse vaporize on 60% of her pyronado hits, while Hu Tao will trigger reverse vaporize on 23.5% of her N1 attacks, 49% of her charged attacks, and 59% of her Blood Blossom Hits.
Evidence: Google Sheets (By Isu) Google Sheets (By yuna)
Significance: Can be used to calculate Hu Tao/Xiangling dual pyro teams and their efficacy compared to other teams.

Gouba Snapshots CW Stack

By: yeow#5090 Added: 2021-09-06 Discussion
Theory: Guoba snapshots the CW stack on cast.
Evidence: Youtube
Significance: DMG calculation.

Pyronado Reverse Direction Mechanic

By: euphorysm#6156 Added: 2021-12-12 Discussion
Finding: It has been found that if you use Xiangling's Q and then use certain characters' attacks when the Pyronado is in a specific position, it can begin rotating the opposite way. The attack has to be used when the Pyronado is somewhere in the direction in which they "dodge" or "shift".
  • The Pyronado follows a Quadrant Rule where the active character must use their attack when the Pyronado is in the 1st or 4th quadrant, depending on the direction the active character shifts in when performing an attack. For example, Kujou Sara must cast her Elemental Skill when the Pyronado is in the 4th Quadrant, since she dodges backwards.
  • This usually works against large or Geo mobs such as Geovishaps, Geovishap Hatchlings, Geo Lawachurls, Ruin Graders, etc.
  • Some characters such as Sara, Rosaria, and Keqing can perform their Elemental Skills in air and make the Pyronado switch directions.
  • Keqing is the only character who can make this happen within her Normal Attack string (N5), but she must hit an enemy.
  • Polearm characters such as Hu Tao, Xiangling, and Thoma can also make this direction change happen with their Charged Attack, but you also must hit a heavy or Geo enemy.
Evidence: Changing direction without hitting any enemy:
Polearm CAs, such as Xiangling CA, cannot change Pyronado direction while hitting air: Imgur
Changing direction while hitting enemies:
Significance: Allows us to better understand how and/or when Xiangling's Pyronado rotates the opposite direction than when it was cast. This change in direction rarely triggers in realistic circumstances and will very slightly increase damage with the “extra swing".
