Which Free Liyue Character Should You Pick?

Liyue, the region of the Geo Archon, provides some of the most compelling characters in Genshin Impact today. Unfortunately, choosing only one of them is no easy task.

The eight 4-stars characters from Liyue are Xiangling, Beidou, Xingqiu, Ningguang, Chongyun, Xinyan, Yanfei, and Yun Jin.

Being 4-star characters, it won't be rare to end up with more than one of them on your roster. In that case, it is also a good option to increase their constellations.


There is a joke in the Genshin community that almost every update is a Xianling update, as she seems to get better every time.

    • Pyronado is one of the top-tier Elemental Burst with big DMG and Pyro applications.

    • The end game potential of Xianling is behind her Constellation 4.
  • Ideal Constellation: 4
