Keqing Character Overview & Evaluation

Powerful Charged Attack Combo

▲Repeatable until you run out of stamina! Also serves the function of dodging enemy attacks.

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.

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!

- Xingqiu greatly boost Keqing's damage with his burst and wet application (almost all attacks are AOE). Decreased damage is also desirable for Keqing
- 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

Voice Actor (EN)
Kayli Mills
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.

Anonymous 10

electro isn’t weak lol

Anonymous 9

she was never an SS rank anon, her damage is dog**** even with 5* weap

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.
