Hello everybody, this is my arena guide for Xing Tian.
Unlike most guardians, Xing Tian is more focused on dealing damage than taking it because he's not as tanky as others. To help combat this, he has a good escape with his Sky-Cutting Axe. That doesn't mean he can't stand on the front lines, he just has to be very careful of his health and not dive in without his team. He may be the spearhead of an assault, but he's going to fall point first into the ground without his shaft being attached. Him and Bacchus share a lot in common in that regard.
Your main combo is going to be Hook Slam followed by Furious Roar: Root the enemy first, then breath on them for good measure. You can use Sky-Cutting Axe to engage a far enemy before performing this combo if necessary, but be wary of where your enemy's team is and don't dive in alone. Also remember Sky-cutting Axe is also your escape, so don't use it if you don't think you or your team will be able to get the kill.
Your ultimate combo is the same as above except you'll blink/jump into a group of enemies, activate Whirlwind of Rage and Steel, then single out a target for your main combo.
I hope you enjoyed this build for Xing Tian and that it helps you in your arena play with him. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them because I am always looking for feedback on my builds so I can refine them. Thank you for reading and have a great day.
And remember: You're the tip of the spear!
