Keqing is one the most beloved 5-Star characters in Genshin Impact, and now she\’s finally getting her own new skin in the Version 2.4 update. Along with Ningguang, the Yuheng of the Liyue Qixing Keqing is getting a beautiful new blue dress to go along with the new Liyue-themed update \”Fleeting Colors in Flight.\”
Keqing\’s new outfit, \”Opulent Splendor,\” will be available for players to obtain once Version 2.4 releases on January 5th, 2022. The outfit will become available for purchase on that date and will be available permanently in the store. So far, it will be the only other skin for a 5-Star character alongside Jean\’s \”Sea Breeze Dandelion\” skin.
Skins in Genshin Impact do not give the player any gameplay buffs or change the character\’s abilities; however, they do give the character a fresh look for players who want to change things up for their favorite units. Keqing\’s skin features a shimmering short black and blue dress, paired with gold accents, patterned tights, and blue ribbons to tie into her adorable cat-ears. Here\’s how players can obtain \”Opulent Splendor.\”
Unlocking Keqing\’s Opulent Splendor Skin in Genshin Impact
While Ningguang\’s skin will be available for free through gameplay or by collecting specific items during special events in the next update. However, players who want to get or buy Keqing\’s gear in Genshin Impact will have to purchase it from the shop. To open the shop, players simply need to open Paimon\’s menu, then open Paimon\’s Shop and click on the outfits tab. Here, they will be able to see all the cosmetics available for purchase.
During the Version 2.4 update (from January 5th to February 14th, 2022), players will be able to purchase \”Opulent Splendor\” for a discounted 1350 Genesis Crystals, which would cost the player about 30 US Dollars to buy. After this period, the discount will end, and the skin will cost 1680 Genesis Crystals instead. While the discount will end, the skin will be available in Paimon\’s Shop permanently even after the update.
While skins are a relatively new aspect of Genshin Impact, players are very excited about the appearance of the two new skins for Ningguang and Keqing. As the first skins for Liyue characters, these opulent dresses fit the characters\’ personalities perfectly, making them must-haves for players who love these units and use them frequently. Thus, players who obtain them will be able to give their characters a fun new look as they explore the new region of Enkanomiya coming to the update as well.
