Who is Keqing?

One of the Liyue Qixing, Keqing has an uncompromising belief in actions over words. If she sees something that needs doing, she’ll do it herself. For example, she traveled around Liyue and carefully memorized each detail of the land so that she may one day be able to maximize the utility of every last inch of Liyue.

Keqing Talents

For skill and talents, we are covering combat talents, passive talents, constellation, and all necessary materials to increase Keqing combat talents.

Combat Talents

TalentDescription
Keqing Talent - Yunlai SwordsmanshipYunlai Swordsmanship (Normal Attack)
  • Normal Attack: Perform up to 5 rapid strikes.
  • Charged Attack: Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash 2 rapid sword strikes.
  • Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
Keqing Talent - Stellar RestorationStellar Restoration (Elemental 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 the Mark’s location, dealing AoE Electro DMG.
Keqing Talent - Starward SwordStarward Sword (Elemental 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.
