Sacrificial Sword Is The Best Weapon For This Build

Although the Sacrifical Sword is just a 4-star weapon, it's ability to reset the cooldwon for Qiqi's Elemental Skill makes it an essential part of this build. Since Qiqi gets most of her healing from her skill, having a good uptime for it is better than having more healing through ATK weapons.

The Best Artifact For This Build Is The Ocean-Hued Clams

Since you're aiming for a Superconduct build anyways, having Ocean-Hued Clams will allow Qiqi to deal additional DMG for the team. Without it, she'll be relegated to just a Cryo applicator and healer.

Aim For Triple ATK%

Qiqi's healing scales off her ATK so when it comes to build her in order to use the Ocean-Hued Clams, it's better to have triple attack across her Artifact Stats. Although Healing Bonus can be used, ATK% should yield a higher healing for Qiqi.

Notes About Team Comps For Qiqi

Qiqi loses out against other healers because she doesn't offer other utilities. This makes it hard to add her to team comps that require damage from all members. It's really with Superconduct that she shines best in the current meta.

Alley hunter in the weapons? lol this site was better long time ago

Anonymous 13

Just saying. As a Qiqi DPS, I believe she can be pretty good with Clam and Prototype Rancour. Goes up to 30k with clam and can do a few thousand with physical damage if you have enough attack bonuses. Qiqi can be a DPS, if you try hard enough.

Qiqi don't use bow lol, no need for Alley hunter

Anonymous 11

What combo of equipment is that, in my opinion you better just increase her ATK instead of physical DMG, cause her healing is based on that, no wonder you put her on B tier, you cant combo her well.

Anonymous 10

Replace Prototype Rancour with The Flute or at least put it up there as an option... playing as Qiqi your main concern is healing and dealing dmg at the same time pair this weapon with OHC(Ocean Hued Clam) artifacts and you'll be dealing dmg passively while healing your team mate more effieciently.
