If she uses Stellar Restoration again, she will blink to the location of the Mark and unleash one slashing attack that deals AoE Electro DMG. When blinking to a Stiletto that was thrown from a Holding attack, Keqing can leap across obstructing terrain.

If Keqing uses a Charged Attack, she will ignite a series of thundering cuts at the Mark’s location, dealing AoE Electro DMG.

Best Genshin Impact Keqing Team Combo​





Best Genshin Impact Keqing​ Builds

Keqing excels in dancing around the battlefield with her swift movements and elegant swordsmanship. Her nimble fighting style sometimes makes you avoid certain things if timed correctly. That being said, technique isn’t all she needs to fight. She also needs equipment!

Best Weapons for Keqing​ in Genshin Impact

The best weapons for Keqing depends on the way you want to build her. Mistsplitter Reforged and Lion’s Roar both suits an Electro DPS Keqing, meanwhile Aquila Favonia and Prototype Rancour would be for a Physical DPS Keqing.

Mistsplitter Reforged

Mistsplitter Reforged

Gain a 12% Elemental DMG Bonus for every element and receive the might of Mistsplitter’s Emblem. At stack levels 1/2/3, Mistsplitter’s Emblem provides a 8/16/28% Elemental DMG Bonus for the character’s Elemental Type. The character will obtain 1 stack of Mistsplitter’s Emblem in each of the following scenarios: Normal Attack deals Elemental DMG (stack lasts 5s), casting Elemental Burst (stack lasts 10s); Energy is less than 100% (stack disappears when Energy is full). Each stack’s duration is calculated independently.

Lion's Roar

Lion's Roar

On hit, Normal or Charged Attacks increase ATK and DEF by 4% for 6s. Max 4 stacks. Can only occur once every 0.3s.

Best Artifacts for Keqing​ in Genshin Impact

Keqing has these as her best artifact sets. The best set for an Electro DPS Keqing would be 2 piece Thundering Fury and 2 piece Gladiator’s finale with ATK Sands, Electro DMG% Goblet, Crit Rate/Crit Damage Circlet main stats. Again, circlet stats will depend on your crit rate ratio.

For a Physical DMG Keqing, Pale Flame is the best. Look out for ATK Sands, Physical DMG% Goblet, and Crit Rate/Crit Damage Circlet.

Thundering Fury​

Thundering Fury

  • 2-piece effect: Electro DMG Bonus +15%
  • 4-piece effect: Increases damage caused by Overloaded, Electro-Charged and Superconduct by 40%. Triggering such effects decreases Elemental Skill CD by 1s. Can only occur once every 0.8s.
Gladiator's Finale

Gladiator's Finale

  • 2-piece effect: ATK +18%.
  • 4-piece effect: If the wielder of this artifact set uses a Sword, Claymore or Polearm, increases their Normal Attack DMG by 35%.
Pale Flame

Pale Flame

  • 2-piece effect: Physical DMG +25%
  • 4-piece effect: When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, ATK is increased by 9% for 7s. This effect stacks up to 2 times and can be triggered once every 0.3s. Once 2 stacks are reached, the 2-set effect is increased by 100%.

FAQs about Genshin Impact Keqing

Keqing’s charged attack is the strongest single-target DPS move in the game, making her an extremely valuable main DPS.

When paired with a character that can trigger a superconductor and a supporting character that can help boost damage, Keqing is formidable in battle.

Approximately 17 years old. The age of Keqing is not obviously stated in the game. Her birthday is on November 20th

Like typical Electro units, Keqing’s Electro damage is deemed underwhelming, so most players opt to go with a Physical build. This is because Keqing has a high Charged attack multiplier, and she can easily trigger Superconduct.

Keqing is a much better Electro DPS compared to Razor, since she can temporarily imbue her normal attacks with Electro element, which will give a constant Electro DPS, and her burst is also dealing Electro damage.

Ganqing is the femslash ship between Ganyu and Keqing from the Genshin Impact fandom.

Are you guaranteed to get Keqing in Genshin Impact?

Not quite. You’re not guaranteed to get Keqing, even if you pull from her Banner.

The first, and the absolute best, weapon that you could attain for your Electro Keqing build is the Mistsplitter Reforged. This blade offers a ridiculous amount of critical damage with 44.1% at level ninety.

miHoYo Keqing is a rare five-star character. It’s pretty unfathomable to see someone literally spend that kind of cash all for a video game character, but that pretty much sums up the free-to-play model in a nutshell.

Physical Keqing can attack all enemy types with no problems when fighting any elemental type.

If Keqing can produce reactions, she will be able to gain increased use of her E skill, for a better option of an Electro DPS. %electro damage is very valuable for the Keqing build using lions roar (20%) or an electro goblet.

Keqing is likely a skeptic without equal when it comes to the value of Visions.

She knows that everything she has is the result of her own hard work, but that in the eyes of others, credit has been given instead to her Vision.

Best Team Composition for Keqing

Players looking to train with Keqing’s early-game synergies without investing too much in rolls would do wonders with Fischl (Electro), Xingqiu (Hydro), and Venti (Anemo).

This build capitalizes on Keqing’s ability to pull groups of enemies together with her Electrocharged burst. Thanks to Venti’s toolkit, the team can dish out decent crowd control from the get-go.

And with Keqing’s synergy with Fischl, the team can easily dish out their heavy-hitters for bonus damage. However, a risk element here would be Xingqiu’s presence.

Granted, Xingqiu’s burst ability pairs well even with Keqing’s fast-paced basic attacks. However, his burst cooldown can be a bit of a nuisance. Xingqiu’s main role in this team would be providing Wet with extra synergies.

Runner-up Team Composition for Keqing

This team offers another double resonance, but this time with Cryo into the mix. Players can capitalize on Keqing’s fast-paced attacks with frozen enemies thanks to Lisa (Electro), Qiqi (Cryo), and Kaeya (Cryo). Due to the innate resonances of this build, Keqing can enjoy a physical approach to fights.

Cryo Resonance and Electro Resonance can give the team a much-needed DMG and CRIT Rate boost — much more for Keqing if she uses her burst. Moreover, this comp gives her access to Thrilling Tales; thus, Keqing can become a powerhouse against most bosses.

With Qiqi and Kaeya giving Keqing much-needed sustains and Cryo spams, she should have enough wiggle room for her lightning-fast techniques against opponents on the slower side.
