Chixia Overview (1.0.21)

In Wuthering Waves, Chixia is a 4-Stars Fusion character and uses Pistol during the fight.

Chixia, a young member of the Jinzhou Patrollers, patrols the streets of Jinzhou City, leaving her passionate imprint on every alley she traverses. As a beloved figure within her community, she stands as a shining hero, always prepared to lend a helping hand to those in need.

Chixia Review (1.0.21)

Chixia is a 4-Star Fusion character in Wuthering Waves.

Obtained immediately upon entering the game, this character has the highest burst damage among four-star characters and is the best fit for the Battle Pass Pistol.
Using R1 permanent five-star weapons as the 100% standard, a fully leveled Battle Pass Pistol can reach 110%.
In Chixia’s burst damage output, Resonance Skill damage accounts for over 60%.
If the Double-Boom Boom technique is mastered (using Resonance Liberation immediately after the second Boom Boom and then using Boom Boom again after Resonance Liberation ends),
the proportion of Resonance Skill damage can be even higher.
Although the Resonance Liberation Energy requirement is quite high, the Resonance Liberation Multiplier is the highest among four-star characters, making the damage very considerable.

Pros

  • Extremely strong burst capability!
  • Resonance Chain benefits are among the top for four-star characters.

Cons

  • Since the damage mainly focuses on Resonance Skill: Boom Boom, the Resonance Skill: DAKA DAKA! in Forte Circuit takes a long time to execute,
    it is very easy to get interrupted by aggressive enemies, so it is crucial to find the right timing for output.

Intro Skill

Forte Circuit is the first priority to upgrade as it is the main source of damage and the core mechanism of Chixia. Resonance Liberation provides significant damage, so it should be the second priority. Then, Resonance Skill should be the third to upgrade because most of Chixia’s damage comes from the Resonance Skill damage provided by Forte Circuit. Therefore, the equipment will also focus on enhancing Resonance Skill damage, making Resonance Skill a good source of additional damage.

Chixia Echo Skill Priority

Inferno Rider can increase Chixia’s Fusion Damage and can also transform into a mount, greatly enhancing the experience of exploring the map.

Havoc Dreadmane‘s skill form and damage are superior to Violet-Feathered Heron.

Although Violet-Feathered Heron’s Counterattack multiplier is decent and it can restore 5 Concerto points, it seems appealing at first glance. However, its practical use is limited as it often leads to standing idle. Compared to Extreme Evasion, which restores 10 Concerto points, it falls short by half. For beginners, it is more recommended to use Havoc Dreadmane to quickly defeat enemies or find openings to deal damage, rather than attempting to use Violet-Feathered Heron‘s Counterattack.

Chixia Team Comp (1.0.21)

Chixia Best Team 

Sub DPS
Over 60% of Chixia’s damage comes from Resonance Skill types, with Resonance Skill: Boom Boom accounting for a significant portion. Activating Resonance Skill: Boom Boom requires 30 Thermobaric Bullets, which can be easily interrupted when facing highly mobile enemies.

Taoqi can provide a shield and Resonance Skill DMG Deepen, while Rover (Spectro)’s Area of Stasis can create an environment for dealing damage. Yangyang’s Outro Skill can restore Liberation Energy for Chixia. Although Chixia’s Resonance Liberation multiplier is the highest among four-star characters, it requires 150 energy points. Given that Chixia’s energy restoration is not very efficient, players who enjoy using Chixia’s Liberation should pair her with Yangyang to help with energy recovery.

Healer

Verina’s healing abilities and Concerto Energy acquisition abilities are both greater than Baizhi’s, making her the preferred healer character. Verina’s Inherent Skill provides a one-time death immunity effect. Baizhi also has a similar effect that is even better, but it requires unlocking at Sequence 5.

Verina’s healing amount is based on her ATK, so Verina has a certain degree of damage output. If you build it well, her damage should not be underestimated.

Verina’s Inherent Skill can provide a 20% attack buff to the entire team, while Baizhi can only provide a 15% attack buff to a single character.

More Build Guides

Yinlin

An Electro damage character with both support and DPS capabilities, Yinlin excels due to the ‘Punishment Mark’ damage type of her Forte Circuit, which is classified as Resonance Skill damage. In the context of the team’s rotation, Resonance Skill damage comprises approximately 50% of Yinlin’s total damage output. Her true value, however, lies not in the off-field coordinated ‘Punishment Mark’ damage, but rather in her effective Concerto Energy generation and the unique buff provided by her Outro Skill in the current version.

Jiyan

An Aero Damage DPS character, this hero relies on the Intro Skill to activate. Once the Resonance Liberation ultimate is initiated, Heavy Attacks contribute to approximately 90% of the total damage. Activating Resonance Liberation changes the attack mode, offering a larger attack range and the ability to suppress lightweight enemies.

The high attack frequency of the Lance of Qingloong allows for the quick activation of stacking Inherent Skills and Weapon Effects. When paired with Morfeti, it can deal exceptionally high total damage against multiple enemies.

Jianxin

Jianxin possesses comprehensive support abilities, providing shields, healing, and pulling enemies together. The range and intensity of the pull are currently the best in this version, although not yet excellent.

The Resonance Skill functions as a damage-immune defensive counter, making it very suitable for novice players who are unfamiliar with action games to tackle high-difficulty dungeons.

While Jianxin does have damage output capabilities, the multipliers are very low and it lacks burst methods.
