Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Guide: Saiyan Build

Check this guide for building a Saiyan character in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2!

Saiyans are the faces of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and they have high attack power. While going through the game, there are a few options you can make which will depend on what you want to do, which Awoken transformation you use, and even your gender.

I'm going to go over examples of how to build your character if you are a Saiyan and why they are good ideas. You can check out my guide on Racial Bonuses to get a better idea of the bonuses Saiyans get.

This guide will go over building Saiyan characters in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 including:

  • Stat/Attribute Point Build - Examples of what to put points in.
  • QQ Bang - QQ Bangs that work well with Saiyan builds.

Stat/Attribute Point Build

Saiyans have male and female version, which alter stats slightly. Something they share though is a high attack power and low health.

Males are better at physical attacks, but their supers are not as strong. Females have better Ki and Stamina recovery and can activate Z assists more at the expense of lower health.

This does not mean you have to build your characters this way, but it can help. I'll give an example of a male Saiyan build, then the female build I currently use.

This also takes into account the boost you get from the Guru's House that lets you raise stats to 125. Check my Conton City guide if you don't know how to do that.

The max level is 80 and you get 332 attribute points to put in.

Male Saiyan 

  • Health - 18
  • Ki - 42
  • Stamina - 42
  • Basic Attacks - 125
  • Strike Supers - 0 or 105
  • Ki Blast Supers - 0 or 105

They have more health than Female Saiyans, so it can be a bit lower and you can use QQ bangs to raise this.

Ki and Stamina should be 42 because you will gain a bar of each every 42 points.

Basic Attacks are their biggest strength, so maxing that is a good idea.

You should focus on 1 of the supers, so 105 in 1 of those, and 0 in the other. Their super attacks are weaker, but that doesn't mean worthless. Focusing on 1 can overcome that weakness.

The normal Super Saiyan transformation that can go to Super Saiyan 3 would be your best choice because it raises your physical damage the most.

QQ Bang

The main thing you want is something that does not lower Ki, Health, or basic attacks by much. If you can, get one that raises all of these. 

You do not need a lot of Ki, but you will want at least 5 bars so you can go to Super Saiyan 3.  Basic Attacks are your best stat, so raise that. And Health will be pretty low, so raising that is good too. 

Below is an example of a decent Level 3 QQ Bang to use.

  • Health +4
  • Ki +2
  • Stamina -2
  • Basic Attack +3
  • Strike Super -1
  • Ki Blast Super -2

Female Saiyan

  • Health - 30
  • Ki - 30
  • Stamina - 42
  • Basic Attacks - 105
  • Strike Supers - 0 or 125
  • Ki Blast Supers - 0 or 125

My above picture is wrong. I started this before I realized I wanted Ki Blast Supers and how the points affected Ki and Stamina. 

I put health higher because they have lower health than Male Saiyans.

Ki is 30 because it still give me enough to have at least 5 bars and 42 stamina because it gives me an extra bar.

I want basic attacks to be decent because I want to be able to do decent damage when I'm not using supers.

I raised Ki Blast to max because I like using them more, but Strike Supers will also work.

Super Saiyan or Super Vegeta works with this build. Only do Super Vegeta if you are going Ki Blast Supers -- and even then, Super Saiyan 3 is still a good option if you are going to use a lot of basic attacks.

QQ Bangs

Again, you don't want to lower Health or Ki by much since you need those. Also get one that raises whichever Super you are using. Below is the one I use for a Ki Blast build.

  • Health +1
  • Ki -1
  • Stamina +-0
  • Basic Attack +5
  • Strike Super -4
  • Ki Blast Super +3

I use Super Saiyan 3 with this one. I get a huge attack boost and still a decent boost in my strike supers. The only thing that is lowered significantly is Strike Supers, which i don't use at all.

Only losing 4 points in Ki keeps me at 5 bars so I can do the Super Saiyan 3 transformation.

That's all for my Saiyan build guide for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. Let me know if you have any questions or builds of your own!
