How to play Xiao?
Xiao's goal in Genshin Impact with his DPS build is to take full advantage of his skills while chaining basic attacks. The character allows himself to increase his energy gauge quickly, even if it means using his wind wheels to pick up an enemy from above. You have to look for the form of scourge of all evil as quickly as possible to drastically increase Xiao's damage. When the latter evaporates, you have to change characters to treat it.
Xiao is doing well overall in all areas. Her scourge of all evil is particularly effective in the exploration phases, but also against hordes of enemies.
