Xiao is a fantastic DPS character in Genshin Impact.

Yes, Xiao is worth pulling in Genshin Impact. In fact, the Polearm user can deliver huge amounts of single-target damage, making him one of the best Anemo characters in the game. Being able to leap into the air and watch your enemy’s health bar melt away is incredibly satisfying, especially when you utilize the best Xiao build.

If you combine Xiao with characters like Zhongli, Bennett, Venti, or Xingqiu — you’ll be able to dish out some dizzying damage numbers.
