Arriving tomorrow in Genshin Impact’s Update 1.3, Xiao is the latest 5 star character to grace the roster. As the only survivor of the Five Yakshas, Xiao relies on the Anemo element and a Polearm to dish out punishment. Check out the latest character demo trailer below, which showcases some of his moves.
Xiao’s normal attack is Whirlwind Thrust which allows six quick strikes and an upward thrust when charged. His Elemental Skill, Lemniscatic Wind Cycling, is a quick dash that damages foes in his path and has two charges. Yaskha’s Mask is the name of his Elemental Burst – when activated, his jumping ability, attack AoE and damage are increased. On top of his, his attack damage is fully converted into Anemo and can’t be infused.
The downside is that Xiao will keep losing health while the Burst is active, providing a risk vs. reward kind of scenario. Stay tuned for a more in-depth showcase of his skills in the coming days. Update 1.3 arrives tomorrow and adds a new enemy type, a new camera devices, increasing Leyline rewards and much more.
