Keqing Quick TL;DR Team Comp Guide

Keqing (pronounced “kuh-ching” like Lightning McQueen’s “kuh-chow”)

Fun fact: canonically she is an atheist

Element: Electro

Weapon: Sword

Pros:

Consistent electro procExtremely low E CDExtremely low Q CD
Low energy costHas CRIT DMG as hidden statPractically free 15% CRIT% at all times
Decent AoEDeals with elemental shields well

Cons:

Does rely on high CRIT% for consistent damageDamage can be conditionalElectro build does rely on constellations a bit

PSA #1: Keqing is overall an extremely reliable DPS with minimal flaws. While her team does vary depending on whether or not you’re going AutoKeq or ElectroKeq, the concept is still the same: base your team off her consistent electro proc + normal/charged attacks

Who to take (alternatives explained below!):

FOR ELECTROKEQ

Fischl
  • Provides electro team resonance bonus
  • Source of consistent electro proc
  • Pretty good energy regen with Oz
  • CAN REPLACE WITH BEIDOU OR LISA IF YOU SOMEHOW DON’T HAVE FISCHL
Mona
  • Consistent hydro procs
  • Provides large AoE and CC
  • Mona Q combo’s exceptionally well with Keqing Q
  • CAN REPLACE WITH XINGQIU AS HIS Q ALSO WORKS GREAT WITH KEQING’S ATTACKS
Venti
  • Your residential Dyson vacuum reporting for duty
  • Literally drowns you in energy orbs
  • Provides much needed focused AoE that doesn’t interrupt with Keqing’s charged attack knockback
  • CAN REPLACE WITH SUCROSE AS HER E AND Q PROVIDE FAIRLY GOOD GROUPING

FOR AUTOKEQ

Fischl
  • Provides electro team resonance bonus
  • Source of consistent electro proc
  • Pretty good energy regen with Oz
  • CAN REPLACE WITH LISA AND RUN THRILLING TALES OF DRAGON SLAYERS FOR FREE BUFF
Kaeya
  • Really consistent cryo proc as Kaeya E is extremely low CD
  • Kaeya Q pairs well with Keqing as she has low attack range
  • Pretty underestimated for how well he can poop out energy orbs
  • DO NOT REPLACE AS CHONGYUN WILL NOT [I REPEAT, NOT] WORK WELL
Qiqi
  • Heals for when you’re out of stamina and get slapped by a ruin guard
  • Both Qiqi E and Q pair extremely well with Keqing’s range and attacks
  • Has high duration which provide consistent cryo procs
  • DO NOT REPLACE AS CHONGYUN WILL NOT [I REPEAT, NOT] WORK WELL

PSA #2: The reason Chongyun obviously doesn’t work with AutoKeq is because his E makes her normal/charged attacks from physical to cryo. You can run Chong if you don’t have Qiqi, but just don’t use his E. Cryo resonance provides another free 15% CRIT% to cryo proc’d enemies, so it compliments Keqing really well

Great flex slot alternatives (for both):

  • Bennett – Even with Black Sword, burst healing is great + ATK buffs are always welcome. Amazing in Abyss against geo shields as overloaded does quick work with them
  • Xingqiu – Xingqiu’s E is surprisingly great at keeping squishy DPS tanky + Q is a great source of DPS
  • Diona – Great for spamming cryo proc’s + the shield is strong and frequent enough to keep Keqing out of bad situations
  • Sucrose – For ElectroKeq, EM mules like Sucrose are a great alternative to Venti (if you don’t have) + you can run TTDS on her to further buff Keqing’s DPS
  • Xinyan – A4 passive buffs Phys DMG, which is great for AutoKeq + Xinyan can be run as a burst DPS with claymore and overloaded to help with geo shields in abyss

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK QUESTIONS BELOW! I’ll try my best to respond as I know some players may not have ANY of the characters mentioned

Hope this helped. Bye.
