Keqing Talents

Like her personality, Keqing’s swordwork is both swift and uncompromising. This along with her control of electro brings a shockingly abrupt end to any enemy.

Yunlai Swordsmanship | Attack
Normal Perform up to 5 rapid strikes.
Charge Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash 2 rapid sword strikes.
Plunge Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below damaging enemies along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
Attributes Level 1 Level 10
1-Hit DMG 41.02% 81.09%
2-Hit DMG 41.02% 81.09%
3-Hit DMG 54.44% 107.61%
4-Hit DMG 31.48% + 34.4% 62.22% + 68%
5-Hit DMG 66.99% 132.43%
Charged Attack DMG 76.8% + 86% 151.81% + 170%
Charged Attack Stamina Cost 25 25
Plunge DMG 63.93% 126.38%
Low/High Plunge DMG 127.84% / 159.68% 252.7% / 315.64%

Her 5 hit attack sequence is a standard three-hit combo followed by a 4th hit that hits twice and she vanishes for a short period. For a 5th hit, she reappears and charges in with some delay at the end. Because of so much delay, it’s usually not worth going for the last hit. You want to first learn how to optimize her 4 hit combo and cancel her vanishing animation. You can do this by dashing, jumping, switching out to another character, using her elemental skill, or burst. Don’t dash too much though because you need stamina for charge attacks and jumping is good when you’re out of stamina.

Charge attack spams is a very strong attack sequence that makes it a very viable DPS. After a first attack, hold down attack to do a charge attack and hold down attack right after a charge attack to repeat the process. Practice the timing or you’ll get stuck in a charge attack animation. You can repeat this process over and over until you run out of stamina. Also, note that you do get pushed back when fighting smaller non-stationary enemies. It’s the most effective use on bosses, larger enemies, or even frozen ones who don’t go flying away and keeps Keqing in place.

For smaller enemies, it’s most effective as a finisher or you have to chase after them when they go flying but if you do hit them follow it up with an elemental skill or immediately dash after the charge attack to chase them. To save stamina you can do a charge attack while holding forward and jump. Charge attack spams will drain your stamina so make sure to spend it carefully as you need to dash and avoid enemy attacks as well.

If you are constantly run into a stamina issue, I recommend this 4-hit charge sequence. What it essentially does is when you are out of stamina, instead of waiting and just aimlessly running around and waiting for your stamina to recharge, you can use the first 4-hits of your normal attack and then follow that with a charge attack.

You will notice as you are normal attacking, your stamina will be recharging and by the time you finish your 4th normal hit, you will have enough to use your charge attack. This is an important DPS rotation to use especially in Spiral Abyss so do familiarize yourself with the timing.

Stellar Restoration | Skill
Hurls a Lightning Stiletto that annihilates her opponents like the swift thunder. When the Stiletto hits its target, it deals Electro DMG to opponents in a small AoE, and places a Stiletto Mark on the spot hit.
Hold Hold to adjust the direction in which the Stiletto shall be thrown. Stilettos thrown by the Hold attack mode can be suspended in mid-air, allowing Keqing to jump to them when using Stellar Restoration a second time.
Lightning Stiletto If Keqing uses Stellar Restoration again or uses a Charged Attack while its duration lasts, it will clear the Stiletto Mark and produce different effects:
– 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. When blinking to a Stiletto that was thrown from a Holding attack, Keqing can leap across obstructing terrain.
– If Keqing uses a Charged Attack, she will ignite a series of thundering cuts at Mark’s location, dealing AoE Electro DMG.
Attributes Level 1 Level 15
Lightning Stiletto DMG 50.4% 119.7%
Slashing DMG 168% 399%
Thunderclap Slash DMG 84% × 2 199.5% × 2
Cooldown 7.5 Seconds 7.5 Seconds

Keqing will throw out a lightning stiletto that does minimal initial damage. If you press your elemental skill again, you will teleport to that point and in combat, this will be auto aimed.

You can hold down your elemental skill so that you can aim it anywhere and you can follow it up with either a plunge attack or glide and for fun, you can also do a double plunge attack.

For the important part, once you teleport to your stiletto her first passive talent allows you to infuse your attacks into electro damage and lasts for 5 seconds. You need to keep using your elemental skill for optimal DPS for Electro build Keqing.

Her skill cooldown is 7.5 seconds so there is a 2.5-second downtime where she can’t do optimal DPS but remember her passive talent only activates once you teleport to a stiletto and the 5-second timer starts then. To avoid this 2.5-second downtime and optimize your DPS you can do two techniques:

  1. Throw out your stiletto first and then use your elemental burst and then press your element of skill again. This will ensure you have 100% uptime with your electro infusion.
  2. Throw out your stiletto and switch to another character. This works great with Anemo characters with a 4-piece Viridescent Venerer set to lower the enemy’s electro resistance.

You can combine both techniques for greater results with your Keqing.

Starward Sword | Burst
Keqing unleashes the power of lightning, dealing Electro DMG in an AoE. She then blends into the shadow of her blade, striking a series of thunderclap-blows to nearby opponents simultaneously that deal multiple instances of Electro DMG. The final attack deals massive AoE Electro DMG.
Attributes Level 1 Level 15
Skill DMG 88% 209%
Consecutive Slash DMG 24% * 8 57% * 8
Last Attack DMG 188.8% 448.4%
Cooldown 12 Seconds 12 Seconds
Energy Cost 40 40

Keqing will disappear and start with an initial slash followed by 8 consecutive slashes with a final slash at the end. The AoE is pretty wide and it’s great to use when there are a lot of enemies. It has a cooldown of 12 seconds and a very low energy cost of 40.

It’s great for invincibility or iframes to avoid taking damage when she vanishes and it can reach some enemies that are high up as well. She can reappear faster if you quickly attack, dash, jump, use your elemental skill or switch out characters. As mentioned before, make sure to use your element of skill and then your burst and elemental skill again for optimal DPS.

With her second passive talent, you can use her elemental burst and increase your crit rate and energy recharge by 15% for 8 seconds so it’s ideal that you use your burst as soon as you can. This will be especially important for physical Keqing as a user burst mainly for the crit rate, iframes, and for elemental reactions.

Getting her was worth losing the 50/50 :) She’s so pretty and shes my dream character I’m so happy I just got her. Somehow I got her at like 7 pity on the character banner which is even more amazing. Kinda like a free 5 star!

ok on the more characters page why is keqing’s background that of a 4 star?

is keqing stronger than razor? i got them both on dance of lanterns banner.

Both are good! razor has a higher damage value than her but if prefer Keqing because of her versatility. There are too many factors and it will come down to your preference, gameplay, and team members. I would suggest you play both characters and decide which one you like.

My electro Keqing mains, what sword is better? Black sword or Lion’s Roar? I currently have Black Sword R2 but noticed Lion’s Roar is rate up on the next weapon banner. I’ve scoured the Keqing main subreddit but got some mixed results.

If your crit rate is higher than %50 or Lions Roar has refinement LR is better Otherwise choose blacksword.

Lion’s roar has higher damage potential given that you have enough crit rate and is going electro build, while black sword gives you an advantage of farming artifacts easier since you dont have to bother about crit rate and because of the lifesteal passive you can play more recklessly.

If you have enough crit, you can use lions roar. But if not, its better to use black sword. You have to get the crit appear consistently.

lions roar will have bigger number but harder to build because of less crit rate, also can utilize keqing E and Q to the maximum potential while blacksword is easier to build but only auto attack and charged attack on par with lions roar, E and Q will have way more lower dmg, but u have some heal tho… have tested, same control group, no argument.
