Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Stellar Restoration

Elemental Skill

Hurls a Lightning Stiletto that annihilates her opponents like the swift thunder. When the Stiletto hits its target, it deals Electro DMG to opponents in a small AoE, and places a Stiletto Mark on the spot hit.
Hold: Hold to adjust the direction in which the Stiletto shall be thrown. Stilettos thrown by the Hold attack mode can be suspended in mid-air, allowing Keqing to jump to them when using Stellar Restoration a second time.
Lightning Stiletto: If Keqing uses Stellar Restoration again or uses a Charged Attack while its duration lasts, it will clear the Stiletto Mark and produce different effects: If she uses Stellar Restoration again, she will blink to the location of the Mark and unleash one slashing attack that deals AoE DMG. When blinking to a Stiletto that was thrown from a Holding attack, Keqing can leap across obstructing terrain. If Keqing uses a Charged Attack, she will ignite a series of thundering cuts at the Mark's location, dealing AoE DMG.

Best Team Compositions for Keqing

When you play Genshin Impact everything depends not only on your main character but also on the composition. You should learn how elements complement each other and build the best team for your main. Below you can see the best team composition for Keqing with two sub DPS characters and one support. Also, we have included alternative characters for each role that go well with Keqing too.

Keqing is one of those champions who rely on her normal and charge attacks rather than on elemental damage. Thanks to many AoE attacks that apply Hydro from Xingqiu and burst damage Keqing receives a great boost. The other advantage comes from Venti who can apply elemental combos with AoE attacks. That grant Keqing another advantage from decreased damage. Also, Venti can group and crowd control enemies preparing the fight for Keqing’s ultimate. Bennet provides healing and burst elemental reactions and damage.

Good characters for this comp: Qiqi, Fischl, Xiangling.
