Keqing Character Overview & Evaluation
Powerful Charged Attack Combo
Keqing's biggest strength is her ability to chain charged attacks, leaving almost no window to be interrupted! This makes her perfect for taking on larger, more lumbering enemies that tend to stay still!
Useful For Fighting And Movement
Keqing's Elemental Skill shoots out an Electro mark, and when you hit the ability again you can teleport to that mark's location and attack. If you fit this into your combo, you can use it to deal even further damage. There are even ways to use it when just exploring the map, making this a very versatile ability.

If Keqing uses Stellar Restoration again or uses a Charged Attack while its duration lasts, it will clear the Stiletto Mark and produce different effects. 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.

Keqing - Voice Actor & Profile
Basic Info & Voice Actor
|Weapon||Sword||Voice Actor||Eri Kitamura|
|How To Get|
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.
