How to Use Qiqi

Useful for Setting Up Elemental Reactions

Qiqi 1.png

Qiqi's Elemental Skill ”Adeptus Art: Herald of Frost” has the unique ability to Cryo deal damage over time. After the skill has been activated, she will unleash a ball dealing Cryo damage to the surrounding area automatically. This attack continues even if you switch characters, making it extremely easy to set up Elemental Reactions with other characters' attacks.

In particular, characters with the Hydro Element can easily inflict the Frozen status effect under these conditions, preventing enemies from attacking and providing leeway when surrounded by foes.

Can Heal Other Characters with Elemental Burst

Qiqi has the ability rare among characters to cover HP. As HP regeneration methods are limited in Genshin Impact, this ability can make proceeding through dungeons much easier. Qiqi's HP-restoration ability is an Elemental Burst in which she attaches a Fortune-Preserving Talisman to an enemy, and once a character attacks that enemy, they will recover HP. Any character can take advantage of this ability, allowing Qiqi to act as a healer for the team.

Has Skills advantageous for Item collection

Simply having Qiqi in your party will cause the items on the minimap to be marked, making them far more easy to collect. Materials found across the map are essential for Character Ascension, so be sure to use Qiqi to take advantage of this ability.
