Who is Keqing?

Keqing is a young, hardworking, and earnest individual with great ambitions that she can confidently realise as she holds the esteemed position of Yuheng of the Liyue Qixing. Her opinion and views on current affairs often do not coincide with the opinion of others, so because of Keqing's stubbornness and high expectations, many of her employees are compelled to resign. The main reason for this is that Keqing believes that humanity should not rely on the support of the Gods and control their own destiny. To prove this, she works harder than everyone else.

Strengths and weaknesses

Keqing is a melee unit that deals Electro damage and has good mobility due to the Elemental Skill that allows her to teleport. This skill can also hit enemy weak points and has a low cooldown. She also has a very good Ascension 1 Talent that turns all attacks into electric attacks for a short time. You have the option to build Keqing as a Physical damage dealer or Electro damage dealer, but if you choose the Physical path, it is better not to use Ascension 1.

Her weakness is that her Charged Attack consumes a lot of stamina, so despite the skill that restores it, you may still lack it. Also, as a hero with a sword and electric attacks, it can be difficult for her to fight opponents with long-range attacks, AoE abilities, and Electro-resistant shields.

When choosing equipment for Keqing, take into account whether you are doing a Physical or Electro build. Since this hero is the main damage dealer, when choosing weapons and artifacts, you just need to choose those that give the highest damage buff. Weapons and artifacts from our list mainly increase crit DMG or crit rate, as well as Elemental DMG and Physical DMG, so you should choose the ones that are best suited for your build.

Best weapons for Keqing

Since her release, Keqing was deemed a mediocre DPS unit with average stats for a 5-star character. However, with the introduction of the element of Dendro, Keqing has been thriving. She is more often than not placed in high-tier Quicken and Aggravate teams.

To maximise her Electro prowess and synergy with Dendro, we recommend you use the following weapons:

After using an Elemental Burst, all Succession Seeds are consumed and after 2s, the character regenerates 6 Energy for each seed consumed.
