Qiqi Best Team Combo





– Can heal entire team by attacking while elemental skill is active. Elemental Burst will allow allies to heal by dealing elemental damage to enemies

– Bennett’s ability to heal and attack increases the teams’ hp and damage.

– Will act as the main damage dealer of the team. Can cause melt in synergy with Qiqi

– Crowd control to easily apply elemental combos and bursts to enemies

Best Qiqi Builds in Genshin Impact

Qiqi has an awkward position in the meta where all she can offer is healing, and she can be quite eclipsed by Diona who offers not only healing and shield, but can also act as a battery if your main DPS is a cryo user.

Best Weapons for Qiqi in Genshin Impact

One of Qiqi’s best weapons currently is the Sacrificial Sword, which has a chance of resetting the cooldown of her elemental skill (which has a long cooldown, mind you.).

Aside from that, high attack weapons can also be a good choice for her as her healing scales from her attack.

Sacrificial Sword​

Best Artifacts for Qiqi in Genshin Impact

Qiqi has two choices for her artifact sets. 2 piece Maiden Beloved and 2 piece Gladiator’s Finale for a pure healer build and 4 piece Tenacity of the Millelith for a much more hybrid build. Main stats to look out for are Energy Recharge/ATK Sands, ATK Goblet, ATK/Healing% Circlet.

Maiden Beloved

Maiden Beloved

  • 2-piece effect: Character Healing Effectiveness +15%
  • 4-piece effect: Using an Elemental Skill or Burst increases healing received by all party members by 20% for 10s.
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%.
Tenacity of the Millelith

Tenacity of the Millelith

  • 2-piece effect: HP +20%
  • 4-piece effect: When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.

FAQs about Genshin Impact Qiqi

Qiqi is a mysterious Genshin Impact character who is first introduced during the story. At first glance, she appears to be a little girl who helps out at the pharmacy.

Despite the fact that Qiqi looks like a child, her actual age is a bit of a mystery. Qiqi was changed into a zombie over a hundred years ago, and her body has not aged since leaving her forever young.

Qiqi is by far the better healer. Diona is more a hybrid of a healer and shield provider.

As a dedicated healer, Qiqi is probably slightly better than Barbara, and both are way above Bennett and Jean.

Being one of the best Support characters in the game, Qiqi remains a must-have in any team. Those who want to take Qiqi a step further will want to build a team around her strongest assets.

When she has the right teammates with her, Qiqi can maximize her healing potential and decent burst damage capabilities.

Thanks to Qiqi’s natural burst and healing potential, she can fit right into almost any setup.

Her best lineups include synergies with the likes of Bennett (Pyro), Diluc (Pyro), and Venti (Anemo).

With this comp, Qiqi can easily grant heals via her elemental skill whenever she attacks. In fact, her Elemental Burst incentivizes heavy-DPS, as it grants healing whenever allies deal damage.

On top of that, Bennett’s buffing toolkit can further enhance the team’s overall DMG output.

With his Pyro Resonance with Diluc, Bennett can reinforce Diluc to become the team’s primary DPS.

Thanks to Venti’s Anemo control, the party also gains reasonable crowd control to easily proc Qiqi’s burst-heal-attack rotation.

The best weapon would be the Skyward Blade, a 5 star weapon. Qiqi works well with it as the Energy Recharge will allow you to make use of her Ultimate consistently. Around 180% of Energy Recharge is a good aim for Qiqi.

It increases the CRIT Rate, Movement Speed, ATK Speed and DMG of Normal and Charged Attacks.

Qiqi’s Second Constellation

Much like Keqing, Genshin Impact’s Qiqi suffers from underwhelming constellations despite being a powerful character.

While Qiqi is the most consistent healer in the game, her constellations don’t reflect her kit very well.

Talents priority: Herald of Frost > Preserver of Fortune

I would suggest prioritizing Qiqi’s elemental skill (Herald of Frost) before her burst/ultimate (Preserver of Fortune).

Due to the procs from Sacrificial Sword, you should be able to use the healing ability slightly more often than her burst.
