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

Like Jean, Qiqi is also a combat Healer. Both Qiqi's Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst Heal the party and scale off of her ATK stat. Qiqi can also grant HP Regeneration to the party from her Elemental Skill. Her Elemental Burst 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 making Qiqi a great Co-op character as well.

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.
