As a character, Xingqiu Genshin Impact uses Hydro element with Sword weapon. 

Xingqiu's normal attacks consist of 5 consecutive attacks that deal physical damage to the enemy.

Around Xingqiu there will be Hydro swords called Rain Swords, which number between 3 and 4 depending on the constellation they have.

This Rain Sword will reduce damage obtained from enemies based on Xingqiu's Hydro DMG bonus percentage.

Rain Sword will disappear if your character keeps getting damage and the duration is over.

After the duration is up, the total remaining Rain Sword will be converted to recover the character's HP based on Xingqiu's maximum HP.

You don't have to specialize farming this artifact because you can all farming Shimenawa's Reminiscence for your other characters.

Another option you can use artifact set 2 sets Heart of Depth which you combine with 2 sets Noblesse Oblige.

Noblesse Oblige 2 sets good because it will increase Xingqiu's Elemental Burst DMG +25% build you and get additional Hydro DMG Bonus +15% from Heart of Depth.

Option using 4 sets Noblesse Oblige you can actually use it.
