Pyro Sub DPS Build


  • 2x Crimson Witch, 2x Noblesse Oblige
  • 4x Crimson Witch

2CW 2NO focuses on Pyronado damage. 4CW is also also viable for the reactions damage increase, but Xiangling can only stack the 4-piece effect once since its duration is shorter than her elemental skill cooldown (10s 4CW bonus effect duration vs 12s elemental skill cooldown).

Main Stats
  • Sands: ATK% / Elemental Mastery
  • Goblet: Pyro DMG Bonus
  • Circlet: Crit Rate / Crit DMG

If you can’t consistently proc melt or vaporize, just go for ATK% sands so you still get good damage without reactions.

  1. Crit Rate / Crit DMG
  2. ATK%
  3. Energy Recharge
  4. Elemental Mastery


  • 5★ Staff of Homa (Crit DMG)
  • 5★ Primordial Jade Winged-Spear (Crit Rate)
  • 4★ Deathmatch (Crit Rate)
  • 4★ Blackcliff Pole (Crit DMG)
  • 4★ Dragon’s Bane (Elemental Mastery)
  • 4★ Favonius Lance (Energy Recharge)
  • 4★ Prototype Starglitter (Energy Recharge)

Dragon’s Bane works best if running a melt/vaporize team (melt becomes 2.76x). Otherwise, just use Deathmatch or Blackcliff Pole. If you need constant burst uptime, consider Favonius Lance or Prototype Starglitter for the Energy Recharge.

Talent Priority

  1. Elemental Burst: Pyronado
  2. Elemental Skill: Guoba Attack
  3. Normal Attack: Dough-Fu


  • Xiangling is a constant source of Pyro damage and application via Guoba and Pyronado. As such, this build is best paired with a reactions team, like using Childe as DPS for consistent vaporize reactions with Childe’s melee stance attacks.
  • Also consider stacking Energy Recharge if you need Pyronado uptime for your reactions team
