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 - Best Team

Best Party For Keqing

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!

Premium Team

- Since Keqing doesn't necessarily rely on her elemental damage, her normal and charge attack will be your main combo. She can easily build ult so use it whenever it's up
- 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 Barbara's Elemental Skill will heal her and at the same time, apply hydro to enemies near her. She can easily apply Electrocharged with this.
Character Substitutes
XingqiuXingqiu ZhongliZhongli - Zhongli shield debuff is good for increasing damage and provides Keqing with more survivability
VentiVentiSucroseSucrose - Sucrose's great for crowd controlling and creating elemental reactions. She can also pull enemies into Klee's bombs
BarbaraBarbaraQiqiQiqi- Can heal Fischl while she's out in the field. Can apply Superconduct which works well with Keqing.

Free To Play Friendly Party

- High damage character and will act as the main DPS
- Overcharged and additional damage with Keqing
- Elemental Skill automatically fires and stay in the field even with Fischl out of the field. Can cause superconduct with Qiqi
- Barbara as a free hero should be the go to healer with Keqing as the main DPS.

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.

Keqing - Voice Actor & Profile

Basic Info & Voice Actor

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.

How Tall Is Keqing?

There is no in-game and official data regarding the height of Keqing. We compared characters and Keqing is Medium comparatively.

Effects In-Game

Character height gives advantages and disadvantages in-game. For instance, smaller characters will need to swim even at shallow waters but they easily dodge some enemies attacks or enter narrow entrances of caves.

Keqing's hubby 5

useless recommendations !!

Anonymous 4

Oof, whoever wrote this guide doesn't know how Keqing works at all. Poor artifact and weapon recommendations, deceptively ignorant rating.

Anonymous 3

Try the Dark Iron Sword. In Keqing's hands, it becomes deadly. just wish they gave us more to refine it....

Anonymous 2

Only A+ despite being able to pump out ludicrous DPS, electro reactions and being able to teleport while exploring? You guys are nuts. Also as mentioned below Black Sword is super good for her as if kitted right she can pump out endless high damage crits that will heal her with BS equipped. A+...

Blooe 1

The recommended weapon section should have the Black Sword, the Filet Blade isn't as good.
