Genshin Impact Keqing DPS Build Guide

by 2Board

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

Elemental Skill – Stellar Restoration

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)

Passive – Thundering Penance

Somehow, if a lightening kunai wasn’t enough, she makes her sword also start doing electro damage. IT LASTS 5 SECONDSPSA #3: Buckle up, cause Keqing one complicated character. The mark she leaves can do 2 things:

  1. Tap E again after casting E to teleport to the mark and slap a sucka with your sword
  2. Use a Charged Attack and it’ll blow up the mark with slashes

Both do AoE electro damage

Elemental Burst – Starward Sword

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

  1. When you cast ultimate, it will do AoE electro damage
  2. She will then proceed to jump around like a coked up bunny, doing electro damage to any enemies in the area
  3. She then whispers “nothing personal kid” and does a final massive AoE electro damage proc

Passive – Aristocratic Dignity

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!

PSA #5: But 2Board, electro% builds are poggers for lategame. It’s true because later enemies (especially for Abyss) have higher resistance stat and barrier. You can reduce resistance by proc’ing hyperconduct (cryo + electro) and deal with barriers by using reactions. This build is still viable for (current) “end-game” content!

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 a 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
