The lore of Genshin Impact is a complex tale involving Archons, demons, and various gods. The mortal humans that live in the land of Tevyat bow down to the archon who controls its nation. Each nation comprises a story of itself with an engaging roster of characters. The roster so far ranges from knights to mysterious outer realm beings who show up of their own accord.

Years removed from the time of their birth, only one has remained and this is the story of the last standing Adepti who was truly incorruptible.

Xiao will be an all power DPS character

This character will serve as the final Adepti god. If you have built enough pity on the previous banner, then you should definitely go for Xiao. He brandishes a unique playstyle that revolves around plunge attacks and hyper aggression.

He sacrifices a bit of his health to unleash the genuine power that earned him the title of the conqueror of demons. If you really like this playstyle and want to wipe out your enemies in a matter of seconds, then look no further than Xiao. He also scales with crit rate and has insane damage stats that probably ranks among the very best in the game.
