Keqing Skill Description:

Stellar Restoration

Keqing Elemental Skill - Stellar Restoration

See the full talent scaling here

Cooldown:7.5 Seconds
Stiletto Duration:5 seconds
Energy Generated:3 Electro Elemental Particles

Keqing throws a lightning stiletto to her opponents and places a mark on the spot it landed.

You can use this elemental skill in two ways:

  • Press – quickly throws the lightning stiletto to an immediate target in front of you.

    • The lightning stiletto deals Electro Damage to all enemies within a small area. Then it places a mark on the same area and lasts for 5 seconds.

      The lightning stiletto itself does not generate elemental particles.

    • If you press the elemental skill button (The E key for PC users) again, Keqing will blink and slash to the marked area dealing Electro Damage to enemies in front of her.

      Moreover, if you have the Thundering Penance passive talent unlocked, performing this move will infuse Keqing’s sword with Electro properties.

      This makes her normal, charged and plunging attack deal Electro Damage.

      Using it this way will generate elemental particles if Keqing’s slash resulted in a hit.

    • If you use this elemental skill without activating the blink animation (by pressing the E button again), you can still generate elemental particles by performing a charged attack on the spot marked by Stellar Restoration.

      This act will cause the mark to activate lightning slashes and deal Electro Damage to all enemies within its AoE.

      This is a great way to play a Physical Build Keqing since your attack will not be converted to Electro this way.

    • With the first constellation unlocked, Keqing deals an additional hit equal to 50% of her attack on both the start point and on the spot she teleported in.

      This makes it possible to get 2 additional hits if you can cast Stellar Restoration twice close to your target.

  • Hold – This allows you to adjust the targeting where you want to throw the lightning stiletto.

    You can target it in the air which allows Keqing to blink in mid-air when pressing the E button the second time. This makes it possible to perform a plunging attack during combat.

    It will also potentially allow you to move to hard-to-reach high-ground places during exploration.

Starward Sword

Keqing Elemental Burst - Starward Sword

See the full talent scaling here

Cooldown:12 Seconds
Energy Cost:40 Energy

Keqing moves ultra high speed, leaving only shadows of her after image and dealing a myriad of slashes in a large AoE.

This elemental burst has the following effects:

  • Enemies caught in the AoE of this skill will receive up to 8 Electro Damage consecutively plus 1 final slash that deals even greater Electro Damage.

  • With the Aristocratic Dignity unlocked, Keqing gains 15% increase in Critical Rate and Energy Rechage for 8 seconds.

  • During its animation, you’d be able to move by quickly pressing the attack button (left mouse click for PC users), dash (Shift Key) or leaving behind a mark from Stellar Restoration (elemental skill) then pressing the E key again.

    This act will cancel your “disappearance” animation but still deal the full damage of the elemental burst.

Yunlai Swordsmanship

Keqing Normal Attack - Yunlai Swordsmanship

See the full talent scaling here

Charged Attack Stamina Cost:25 Stamina

Normal Attack:

Keqing performs up to 5 quick slashes that deal Physical Damage to enemies.
Charged Attack:

Keqing performs a very fast 2-hit combo slash while stepping back a little. This deals 2-hit physical damage and consumes 25 stamina to activates.

It also has a knockback effect when hitting small enemies.

Plunging Attack:

This attack pattern activates when you perform a basic attack (left mouse click for PC users) while Keqing is in the mid-air. This allows Keqing to plunge from mid-air and strike the ground dealing Physical Damage on all enemies within a small AoE.

Keqing Passive Talents:
