Gameplay Tips

This section is dedicated to a playstyle where Keqing does not infuse her attacks with electro, and instead focuses on physical damage (white numbers). For this reason, you should be charged attacking after casting Stellar Restoration (E) instead of recasting it.

Regarding Weapon Choices:

  • Harbinger of Dawn: The performance of this weapon is heavily reliant on being able to maintain its passive. It is not recommended otherwise.

Regarding Artifact Sets:

  • Pale Flame (4): This set is the best by far as Keqing can proc its 4 piece set bonus instantly by charge attacking after casting E.
  • Pale Flame (2) Bloodstained Chivalry (2): This set should only be used until getting 4PF.
  • Bloodstained Chivalry (2) +18% ATK set (2): The generalist Physical DPS set.
  • Retracing Bolide (4): This set should only be used with a consistent shielder (i.e. Zhongli/Diona) for obvious reasons.
  • Bloodstained Chivalry (4): This set is for general solo and Abyss content where there are multiple mobs that can be killed with charged attacks within 10 seconds, this is for dealing with a crowd, in other words, AoE. It is not recommended because of the kill condition.

Artifact Stats

Main Stats

  • Sands – ATK%
  • Goblet – Electro DMG
  • Circlet – Crit Rate / DMG

Substats

  • 1. Crit Rate / DMG
  • 2. ATK%
  • 3. Elemental Mastery
  • 4. Flat ATK
  • 5. Energy Recharge

Talent Priority

  • 1. Normal Attack
  • 2. Burst
  • 3. Skill

Note: Since Keqing uses burst to get an extra 15% crit, it’s much better in leveling it. Best course of action is to level NA and Burst together. Don’t forget to level skill to a decent level.

Ability Tips

Preferred Skill Combo: ES (Place stiletto, don’t reactivate yet) -> EB -> ES (Reactivation) -> Spam AA -> Repeat

Regarding Roles:

  • Both physical and electro keqing are good and viable. You’d usually want to decide which build to go for depending on your weapon gacha luck. For example, Lion’s Roar = Electro, Flute will be equally good on Electro/Phys, etc.

Gameplay Tips

Regarding Weapon Choices:

  • Lion’s Roar: This weapon is only recommended on Pure Electro/Electro-charged teams. In teams where the Electro Aura can be easily removed OR when facing enemies with innate elements, this weapon will severely underperform.
  • The Black Sword: On a quickswap Keqing, this weapon will be shifted below Harbinger of Dawn [R5].

Regarding Artifact Sets:

  • Thundering Fury (2) +18% ATK set (2): This set is a generalist set, which means it can be used generally anywhere, whether it be Co-op or Abyss, or other singleplayer content. This has a lot of consistency due to its independence from electro aura, and it is more viable in abyss.
  • +18% ATK set (2) / +18% ATK set (2): While it is slightly behind Thundering Fury (2) +18% ATK set (2), this set is preferred to farm for due to the resin efficiency of Shimenawa’s Reminiscence’s Domain.
  • Thundersoother (4): This set should be used with Electro-charged team compositions (Keqing + Xingqiu) or mono-electro team comp (Not Suggested). This set has a 35% Dmg modifier which increases all damage from all sources, although that modifier is a bit unstable due to its dependency to the sustainability of Electro aura on enemies.
  • Thundering Fury (2) Noblesse Oblige (2): This set is used for Burst/Quickswap AoE Keqing. With this set, you’d want to be using Starward Sword (Q) all the time, which is your main source of DPS with this set.
