Xinyan is overdue for an updated guide within the community given the new gear and gameplay she’s gained access to over Inazuma’s 8 patch lifespan, so this video will cover and explain everything you need to know regarding Xinyan in 2.8 Genshin Impact!
REGARDING THOMA & YUN JIN:
Thoma and Yun Jin both require Xinyan to consistently use normal attacks to make the most of their kits (Blazing barrier shields with Thoma and NA DMG increases with Yun Jin) which generally goes against Xinyan’s playstyle in which she utilizes her charged attacks.
While you CAN flex these normal attack-based supports into Xinyan’s team – especially Yun Jin – it’s difficult to warrant using them over other teams because in order to USE their buffs, you have to cut out other means of potentially high DPS for Xinyan, ESPECIALLY when she’s at c6 and benefits from the increased flat ATK whilst charged attacking.
Finally, the other problem is that as a melee user, Xinyan’s hitlag prevents her from noticably enjoying ATK speed buffs, and her already low ATK speed is what makes her less powerful with Yun Jin than other, faster DPS users are.
This is not to say you CAN’T use Thoma and/or Yun Jin with Xinyan, but they aren’t optimal on her, especially when considering certain circumstances such as c6 Xinyan, or the fact that Bennett simply provides everything Xinyan needs in a buffer for every scenario.
