I’ll get straight to it.
PSA #1: DPS are glorified firework shows, and your team is just there to help ignite the firework
PSA #2: Both Keqing’s abilities scales with ATK. SHE IS LITERALLY THE MOST WEEB CHARACTER. Teleports behind you “nothing personal kid” – if it were a character
Throws a electro kunai. If it hits someone, it zaps them and leave a mark on the spot. You can hold to choose where to cast the mark (EVEN IN THE AIR BRO, TOP TIER EXPLORATION POGGERS)
Somehow, if a lightening kunai wasn’t enough, she makes her sword also start doing electro damage. IT LASTS 5 SECONDS
PSA #3: Buckle up, cause Keqing one complicated character. The mark she leaves can do 2 things:
Tap E again after casting E to teleport to the mark and slap a sucka with your sword
Use a Charged Attack and it’ll blow up the mark with slashes
Both do AoE electro damage
Keqing summons her inner ninja and literally flexes that she’s been studying the blade while you read this guide.
It has 3 layers of damage
When you cast ultimate, it will do AoE electro damage
She will tend proceed to jump around like a coked up bunny, doing electro damage to any enemies in the area
She then whispers “nothing personal kid” and does a final massive AoE electro damage proc
Honestly, I don’t even think I can make a funny joke about this. She just says frick this and gains 15% CRIT. The energy recharge makes her get her ultimate back near instantly
WEAPON #1 (Recommended for maximum slappage): The Flute
Has base ATK scaling and after 5 normal attacks literally kills a guy by giving them tinnitus with the POWER OF MUSIC. YEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-
WEAPON #2 (Recommended for easy slappage): Lion’s Roar
Has base ATK scaling and a consistent electro buff which is good because Keqing tends to, you know, swap her damage into electro
PSA #4: There are a lot of weapon variants for Keqing, but personally found these two consistent. Iron Sting, Prototype Rancour, and Fillet Blade are honestly not bad placeholders!
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for easy DPS): Gladiator’s Finale
How do I get it D: ? – Any World Boss (40 Resin per run)
Keqing uses normal attack BUTT TON. She literally has one of the cleanest, fastest normal attack variants, so swing away
ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for CRIT DPS): Berserker + Brave Heart
How do I get it D: ? – Berserker at any World Boss (40 Resin per run). Brave Heart at Domain of Guyun (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run) or just steal chests
Helps reach the CRIT% soft cap
More ATK% = More slappage
Resolution of Sojourner 2-set and even Martial Artist 2-set bonuses are good placeholders instead of Brave Heart as well. I recommend keeping Berserker 2-set bonus as Keqing’s 4th stat is CRIT DMG, so you want as much CRIT% as soon as possible
PSA from OP: Hey guys, hope the guides have been helping. Sorry that the guides are coming out slower. I’m actually a F2P player myself and wasn’t lucky enough to get some of the characters. Some of my guides (like this one) are based on looking at hours of data sheets, run values, and stress tests provided by friends and other players. Don’t worry though because the information is still relevant and useful! I hope you guys understand.
If you want other characters let me know. Hope this helped. Bye.
