Like most of the characters in Genshin Impact, Keqing must be pulled through the Wish system. This means acquiring her is purely up to chance. Much like Genshin Impact\’s Lisa the librarian, Keqing uses her Electro abilities to cause AoE damage. However, Keqing\’s stats (and especially her defense) are much better than Lisa\’s. When it comes to Electro users, Keqing is only outshined by Fischl, an S-tier character.
If players want to make Keqing one of the best characters in Genshin Impact, they\’ll need to equip her with the right Artifacts. The best Artifacts set is the Gladiator\’s Finale set, because it increases Electro DMG while also raising ATK stats. If four Artifacts in this set are equipped, Keqinq\’s Normal Attack will increase by 35% since she uses swords. If players can\’t obtain the Gladiator\’s Finale set yet, then any Genshin Impact Artifacts which increase ATK will work just fine.
Keqing wields swords in combat, and just about any of them will increase her ATK stats. However, there are still some better options when optimizing Keqing\’s character build. The Lion\’s Roar is an ideal sword for her, because it increases DMG to enemies affected by Electro or Pyro. Since Keqing is an Electro user already, this means it can increase her DMG by up to 36%. However, much like Qiqi in Genshin Impact, the Fillet Blade will work just fine with Keqing too. The Fillet Blade is far more common, and it has a 50% chance of hitting for up to 400% bonus damage.
While Keqing is already quite powerful when players first meet her in Liyue, she can be optimized with the best character build. With these Artifacts and weapons, players can make the most of Keqing\’s Electro abilities and sword skills in Genshin Impact.
