Keqing Quick TL;DR Electro DPS Build Guide


PSA #1: DPS are glorified firework shows, and your team is just there to help ignite the firework

PSA #2: Both Keqing’s abilities scale with ATK. SHE IS LITERALLY THE MOST WEEB CHARACTER. Teleports behind you “nothing personal kid” – if it were a character

Throws a electro kunai. If it hits someone, it zaps them and leave a mark on the spot. You can hold to choose where to cast the mark (EVEN IN THE AIR BRO, TOP TIER EXPLORATION POGGERS)

PSA #3: Buckle up, cause Keqing one complicated character. The mark she leaves can do 2 things

1) Tap E again after casting E to teleport to the mark and slap a sucka with your sword
2) Use a Charged Attack and it’ll blow up the mark with slashes

Both do AoE electro damage

Somehow, if a lightening kunai wasn’t enough, she makes her sword also start doing electro damage. IT LASTS 5 SECONDS

This can be extremely annoying if you’re up against enemies with high electro resistance or just purely immune to them (e.g.: electro slimes)

Keqing summons her inner ninja and literally flexes that she’s been studying the blade while you read this

It has 3 layers of damage:
1) When you cast ultimate, it will do AoE electro damage
2) She will then proceed to jump around like a coked up bunny, doing electro damage to any enemies in the area
She then whispers “nothing personal kid” and does a final massive AoE electro damage proc

Honestly, I don’t even think I can make a funny joke about this. She just says frick this and gains 15% CRIT. The energy recharge makes her get her ultimate back near instantly

Talent Leveling Order: Normal > E > Q

WEAPON #1 (Recommended for best DPS): Primordial Jade Cutter

How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)

Has CRIT% base scaling and provides a juicy ATK buff equal to Max HP

Summit Shaper and Aquila Favonia are still great alternatives. Although Aquila still provides Phys DMG%, it’s raw ATK scaling + the weapon skill are still great to use regardless

Summit Shaper shines best if you have a strong shielder, which is it’s only downside. Keep in mind that crystallize shields, Xingqiu’s E/Q shields, and Beidou’s C1 shield all count as shields!

WEAPON #2 (Recommended for early DPS): Lion’s Roar

How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)

Has base ATK% scaling and is essentially a free DMG buff

The Flute and Black Sword are still great alternatives. If you have higher refined variants of either, they will easily do better than an R1 Lion’s Roar. Lion’s Roar is easily consistent damage, and the ATK scaling it provides is great

ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for best DPS): Thundersoother

How do I get it D: ? – Midsummer Courtyard Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run)

Basically a free 35% DMG buff

The only thing with 4-set TS is you need to make sure your constantly keeping up your electro procs, otherwise you will lose that damage buff. This can be easily achieved with a double electro-stack (or even a full electro team if really necessary)

ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for easy DPS): Thundering Fury + Gladiator’s

How do I get it D: ? – Thundering Fury at Midsummer Courtyard Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run). Gladiator’s Finale at any World Boss (40 Resin per run)

Boosts Keqing’s enchanted autos, E, and Q damage
Boosts everything

This is an all around build that’s fairly easy to play with and does decent in both overworld and Abyss content. There is a burst DPS build with 2-set Thunder Fury + 2-set Noblesse if you want to turn Keqing into a quick swap burst DPS

Main stats:


Substats: CRIT% > CRIT DMG > ATK (ATK% if not main stat) > ER

If you want other characters let me know. Hope this helped. Bye.


I spend too much time filling out spreadsheets for incoherent data, but at least I can turn them into guides :P

    • It’s a solid set if you’re running electro-charged (most common being Keq + Xingqiu). Otherwise, it’s too dependent on having a constant electro-application — mono electro is somewhat viable overworld and certain domains, but in Abyss it’s extremely lackluster
