Can Simulatenously Heal and Apply Cryo

Genshin - How To Use Qiqi for Elemental Reactions

The ”Herald of Frost” ball is present for an amount of time, which can apply Cryo for every few seconds. However, since it applies Cryo relatively slow, try not to rely on it.

On-Hit Healing to all Characters with Elemental Burst

Genshin - How to Use Qiqi

Qiqi's Elemental Burst ”Adeptus Art: Preserver of Fortune” attaches a Fortune-Preserving Talisman to all enemies in an AoE. Once a character deals damage to that enemy, they will recover HP, making it easy to recover large amounts of health immediately.

Thoughts About Qiqi

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Baizhu ImageBaizhu Yes, you've guessed correctly. The preservation of a thread of "Qiqi's consciousness was in fact the work of the adepti. It's also thanks to Qiqi that I managed to come up with a way to save someone on the brink of death. Since the adepti took pity on this child and even used their arts to keep her on this side of existence, I thought I'd take the opportunity to keep her around the pharmacy. There's no harm in that, is there?
Genshin Impact - Chongyun ImageChongyun She looks like a zombie, but as an exorcist, I feel there's... something different about her. Hmm, her name is also absent from all the praised names I've seen... Where exactly does she fit in among the deities?
Genshin Impact - Gaming ImageGaming Ah, Qiqi, the lovable munchkin. She's convinced that all my accidents are due to stiff joints, so whenever I'm at Bubu Pharmacy stocking up on medicine, she makes me do some stretches with her to limber me up, haha. It's easy, wanna try? Ok, after me: One, two three, four; two, two, three, four...
Genshin Impact - Hu Tao ImageHu Tao Have you seen Qiqi? Tell me where she is, quickly. I need to go seal her away, hee-hee!
Genshin Impact - Xingqiu ImageXingqiu I've always thought there is more to Qiqi than meets the eye. But it's impossible to have a conversation with her when Baizhu's around. Hmm... We could wait till Baizhu makes a home call to one of his other patients and corner her.
Genshin Impact - Yanfei ImageYanfei I heard that little herb gatherer has written out a whole set of behavioral rules for herself. She may be small, but boy, has she got her head screwed on! She's definitely destined for greatness... ''The young of today shall outperform us tomorrow,'' as they say. I must admit, she has my respect.
Genshin Impact - Yaoyao ImageYaoyao Friends: Qiqi's my best friend! She forgets who I am sometimes but I know she doesn't mean it... I just have to remind her to check her notebook, and she remembers me right away.
Forever: I once asked Dr. Baizhu in private if there's any way to cure her, and, um... But it doesn't matter. I'll probably have to keep reminding her who I am for my whole life, but that's okay.

Qiqi's Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Baizhu ImageBaizhu About Baizhu
I can never remember Dr. Baizhu's face. But I don't mind.
Genshin Impact - Hu Tao ImageHu Tao About Hu Tao
Warm. Fake Smile. Death. I despise Hu Tao.
Genshin Impact - Xiao ImageXiao About Xiao
Name: Sounds like a historical artifact to me.
Memory: Remind me, have I met him before?
Genshin Impact - Xinyan ImageXinyan About Xinyan
Genshin Impact - Yaoyao ImageYaoyao About Yaoyao

Qiqi is very, very underrated in my opinion. Her healing is incredibly strong and her DPS is actually fairly competent on the right setups and with the right builds. One of the best weapons for her that I haven’t seen anywhere here is Finale of the Deep, it gives her a ton of extra ATK and the buff is extremely easy to gain. Run her alongside Furina with Ocean hued clam and Finale of the Deep and her DPS can actually get on the level of characters like Diluc and Ganyu.

Why the top 1 recommended weapon has different with the top 1 in overall weapon recommendations? Especially Aquila Favorit isn't included in the top 3 but it's included in the overall weapon recommendations? And Aquila tho get the top 1 but the weapon This weapon is not included in the recommended weapons in any build for Qiqi?
