How To Use Qiqi ?

Recommended Rotation For Qiqi

Recommended Rotation
1Use Elemental Skill to heal active character and apply Cryo in the process
2When in need of burst healing, bring out Qiqi and use her Burst. Switch to your low health character and use Elemental Attacks against enemies with the Talisman to heal

Uses Of Qiqi's Elemental Skill

Heals Active Character In Small Bursts

Qiqi's Elemental Skill is an on-field ability that continuously heals the active character. Healing is done in time with the rotation of the Spirit Ball wherein it heals after every 2 rotation. The amount of healing you get depends on Qiqi's ATK.

Applies Cryo To Enemies

Besides healing, Qiqi's Elemental Skill also applies Cryo to enemies that are hit by the Spirit Ball. Same with the healing, Cryo is only applied whenever the Spirit Ball circles around the player and hits any enemy around it.

Uses Of Qiqi's Elemental Burst

Applies A Talisman To All Enemies Within Its Range

Qiqi's Talisman is a unique status effect that's applied to enemies within her range whenever she uses her Burst. Attacking enemies affected by Talisman with Elemental damage will heal a portion of the damage dealt. Good for Burst Healing a whole team through rotations.

Also Applies Cryo To Enemies

Besides the Talisman, enemies within the Burst's range will also be affected by Cryo. It's an effective way of applying Cryo across multiple enemies.

Strengths Of Qiqi

One Of The Best Healers

Qiqi stands among the best healers in the current roster of characters. Her Talismans offer burst healing, while her Skill is a constant source of healing. She can heal a whole team with no problems.

Weaknesses Of Qiqi

Versatility Is Very Limited

Although Qiqi is one of the best healers, her kit pretty much cages her into that role. Her Cryo application isn't entirely reliable for battle so she's relegated as just a healer unlike other Healer characters that can also sub-dps or support. Qiqi also provide low energy at 0 Constellation.

Affiliation: Liyue
Due to being a zombie, Qiqi lacks facial expression. She hopes that's okay. Shemay look like a zombie, but she's surprisingly limber due to a strict calisthenics regimen. Her memory is poor. She forgets easily, and that is partly why she can seem cold to others. Her appearance is forever frozen at the point of her passing, so estimates of ther age are not to be relised upon. Zombies require orders to act., but due to some reason or another, Qiqi's present state is that of giving herself orders.

Qiqi Story Overview

Works In The Bubu Pharmacy

Qiqi is an employee of the finest pharmacy in Liyue, the Bubu Pharmacy. You might have seen or probably will see her in one of the story quests where the traveler will visit the Bubu Pharmacy to ask for some information about certain issues.

Known As A Zombie

Qiqi was caught in the middle of a fight between the adeptis and the demons and got severely injured. The adeptis felt guilty for having her life taken at such a young age, therefore they have decided to combine their energy to revive Qiqi.

Voicelines About Qiqi

Voicelines About Qiqi
ChongyunChongyunShe looks like a zombie, but as an exorcist, I feel there's... something different about her. Hmm, her name is also absent from all the praised names I've seen... Where exactly does she fit in among the deities?
Hu TaoHu TaoHave you seen Qiqi? Tell me where she is, quickly. I need to go seal her away, hee-hee!
XingqiuXingqiuI've always thought that there is more to Qiqi than meets the eye. But it's impossible to have a conversation with her when Baizhu's around. Hmm... We could wait till Baizhu makes a home call to one of his other patients and corner her...
YanfeiYanfeiI heard that little herb gatherer has written out a whole set of behavioral rules for herself. She may be small, but boy, has she got her head screwed on! She's definitely destined for greatness..."The young of today shall outperform us tomorrow," as they say. I must admit, she has my respect.

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.

Anonymous 9

she heal too much she doesn't need any healing buff, build her as a physical dps or sub burst dps is a better choice, add much more value to your team and her e can be useful if you can be creative with artifacts and party choice

Anonymous 8

Feel like she's underrated. Pairs well with Ganyu, Bennett and Diluc for fiery blizzard team. She's a tank with a solid dodge ability sparing Ganyu when it comes to one hit kills
