Keqing can easily deal damage both with her physical and electro attacks. She's a mobile melee user that can zip through the battlefield with ease!

- Crowd control to easily apply elemental combos and bursts to enemies. Use his elemental burst to group enemies and allow Keqing to hit multiple enemies at once with her ult.
- The best healer with Keqing as Qiqi's Elemental Skill will heal her and at the same time, apply cryo to enemies near her. She can easily apply Superconduct boosting the DMG of Physical Keqing.
Character Substitutes

How To Use Keqing ?

Recommended Rotation For Keqing

Recommended Rotation
1Use Elemental Skill as opener
2Activate Elemental Skill again to get short Electo infusion
3Once it runs out, use Elemental Burst

Uses Of Keqing's Elemental Skill

Reposition With Second Activation

You can easily reposition upon the second activation of Keqing's Elemental Skill. Just make sure that you've set her skill in the right area or you might find yourself in the wrong place.

Get Short Electro Infusion

Whenever you activate Keqing's Elemental Skill the second time, she will get a brief Electro Infusion. Use this to your advantage! You can use this to apply Electro to enemies and hit them with a good amount of Electro damage.

Use Of Keqing's Elemental Burst

Attack Multiple Enemies At A Time

Keqing's Burst is a multi-target attack. It will damage all enemies inside her range, no matter how may they area. It's the only multi-target attack that she has.

Knock Back Enemies Briefly

After her Burst, enemies hit by Keqing's attack will be briefly knocked back. You can use this to disengage briefly from battle or get the enemies mobbing you to go away.

Strengths Of Keqing

A Fairly Good Main DPS

Keqing has good damage potential and can easily fit the role of a Main DPS. She's not one of the best, but she can work well with the right build and supports with her.

Weaknesses Of Keqing

Low Elemental Application

Keqing doesn't really benefit from any type of Elemental Reaction besides Superconduct since she doesn't have good elemental application. This makes it hard to fit her in other Electro-focused elemental reaction teams.

Voice Actor (JA)
Eri Kitamura
November 20


Affiliation: Liyue
Rex Lapis has brought prosperity and plenty to Liyue Harbor, and his rule and majesty have long passed into show and song, much to the delight of the people. But for someone in such proximity to a god, Keqing seems to lack the requisite respect the most. ... Hmph. Let's be real here, but does Morax really know everything?... The Liyue Qixing deal with the day-to-day happening in the Harbor, whether great or small, while Rex Lapis only descends once a year. While history has shown that following Morax's lead has been the right call, Keqing believes that humans should have their own pride, and that their views deserve equal importance. As such, she often advocates different opinions from Rex Lapis, and its the first to put such views into practice. Her radical actions have seen stellar results, but they have also attracted murmurings of opprobrium among those devoted to Rex Lapis. As Keqing sees it, such opposition are the excuses of those who have grown complacent under the aegis of their deity, and who cannot consider the future of humanity of their own accord. But someone must walk on the front line of the epoch and create a new path with their own hands - and the Yuheng star is determined to do her part in this endeavor.

Keqing Story Overview

Skeptics Of The Gods

Keqing is doubtful towards Gods and disliked the idea of relying too much to the adeptis and Gods. She believes that the people of Liyue should be the ones at arms protecting their own land from any disturbances.

A Change Of Heart

When Lady Qixing took over the responsibility for Liyue, Keqing finally opens her mind and gained respect towards the Gods, specifically Rex Lapis. Fun fact! she started collecting Rex Lapis memorabilia as a self-reflection.

The Yuheng Of Liyue Qixing

A hardworking woman that doesn't seem to have the word "rest" on her vocabulary. Keqing has a strong personality and is also an over-achiever, she wants every work she is doing to be completed on a given time.

Voicelines About Keqing

Voicelines About Keqing
GanyuGanyuEstrangement: I cannot stand her disrespectful attitude towards Rex Lapis! But he says to me, "Ganyu, this is just the kind of person Liyue needs in this day and age." I guess I'm not smart enough, because I simply do not understand what he means by that. I think I need more life experience to become wise enough to comprehend his words.
Changing Perspective: She came to me recently to discuss the reopening of the Bishui trade route. She even asked me what Rex Lapis would do if it were him. Admittedly, what we came up with was not quite on par with what he would have chosen. But... seeing the way she kept starting her plan from scratch over and over again, I think I started to understand her a little bit.
Hu TaoHu TaoThe Yuheng, Keqing... she's quite hard to talk to. She's so uptight, hehe... Really makes me wanna mess with her. She wouldn't knock me in the head with her sword though, right? Or would she...?
NingguangNingguangYuheng... She has changed a lot recently. But is Liyue better off with the Yuheng we have now, or the Yuheng we used to know? Only time will tell.
YanfeiYanfeiThe Yuheng doesn't deal with matters of the law, and thank goodness... Knowing Keqing's attitude toward work and ruthless efficiency, I'd end up losing a lot of work. Although... No, surely it wouldn't come to that. She's a stickler for doing things the right way — no doubt she'd offend people... but if she had someone like me as her legal assistant... No way! Why should an eminent legal expert such as myself be relegated to the role of assistant!? If she needs legal counsel, she can come and find me.
ZhongliZhongliShe is the most impious of the Qixing — but I actually find the conviction of such people quite endearing. The only reason I was able to consider taking a step back from such overarching management of Liyue was because there are people like her. People who speak up when they believe themselves to be right, and then go and do something decisive about it.

Keqing is actually pretty good especially with raiden. I got her at 50% crit 220% crit dmg with skyward sword and the burst that she can spam deals quite the heavy damage

Anonymous 10

okay but why is she a tier I main keqing and she is probably one of the top dps in this game
electro isn’t weak lol

Anonymoose 8

I used to have harbinger of dawn on her until I broke f2p. It’s really hard to maintain above 90% hp, which is its only issue. I have the black sword on her now and it is very good for her! I use 2pc thundering fury and 2pc gladiators finale.

Anonymous 7

Whoever wrote this guide doesn’t know what they’re doing and doesn’t know how she works. I use The Black Sword and Thundering Fury and she does a ton of damage. She was SS Rank and now just S Rank? No. This ranking system ****s.
