kazuha spiral

Given that these phases rely heavily on Swirl, it seems that you would benefit greatly from having an Anemo character such as Venti, Sucrose or the new 1.6 character, Kazuha, on your team. Since Xiao does not do much "Swirl", you would be better off with a Sub-DPS Anemo character instead. If you would like to use Xiao, you can try bringing a Sub DPS/Utility character with an elemental skill that can be placed. For example, you can use Mona, Xiangling or Fischl when Xiao is doing his plunging attacks, to allow for Swirl reactions with each plunge. 

Additionally, you should try to build a strong Electro/Pyro character that can break shields in order to break the Cryo Cicin Mage's shield. This is integral as it ensures that you can finish Floor 12 Chamber 2 in time. For example, Diluc, Keqing and Hu Tao are great for breaking Cryo shields.

Of course, it would be great to have a shield character in your team (such as Zhongli or Diona) to prevent you from taking too much damage. Try to bring an archer so that you can aim at the Ruin Guard/Grader's weak points and disable them.
