How to Use Keqing

Highly Proficient at Domain Running

Keqing 1.png

Keqing is a powerful character to have on your team when running Domains, which are mostly focused on eliminating hordes of foes. Even among Sword users, her attacks come out fast, and she's packing the Electro element which is useful as always for comboing into Elemental Reactions. These characteristics make Keqing arguably the strongest character for Domain runs.

She also possesses an Elemental Skill which allows her to launch attacks from a distance, making her viable for a variety of situations. This also means Keqing doesn't have to rely on other members of the party, and can largely hold her own.

Can Hit Enemies' Weak Points like a Bow User

Keqing 2.png

Keqing's ranged Elemental Skill also provides the same advantage as Bow characters of being able to target enemies' weak spots. Her skill is able to pinpoint and strike a specific spot on an enemy, avoiding the need to switch Bow users in and out. Players with Keqing can take on Hunts to go after Bosses proactively and level up their Adventure Rank easily.

That said, unlike Bow users, Keqing's Elemental Skill has a cooldown period, so it can't be used repeatedly. Also, unlike Bows, the first time the Skill is selected it will target the enemy, while on the second time it will fire, so be aware that the timing of the attack will be reliant on the second selection.

Stellar Restoration Allows Teleportation

Keqing's Talent “Stellar Restoration” allows her to both attack enemies with a lightning ball and teleport to the thrown location. Keqing can move directly to the endpoint of the attack, which can also be useful for exploring the field.

This allows her to climb small cliffs painlessly, go over obstacles, and even reach areas that would be otherwise much more difficult to access.
