II. Best Skill Combo For Keqing

Apart from the best weapon, you also need to know how to use Keqing's ATK combos and skills right. Her solo skills are good enough to encounter and defeat small bosses and monsters, such as Hilichurls and Slimes. But she has to combine with other characters' skills. A strong combo can deal tons of damage to finish dangerous bosses in Genshin Impact in the blink of an eye.

#1. Electro Bursts

One of the most powerful and effective skill combos with Electro attacks is the elemental resonance. Qiqi's bursts help Keqing restore her health and apply an Electro-charged environment on the battleground. When you switch to Keqing and use her burst, the Electro resonance deals tons of damage on enemies.

Electro Burst
Her Electro burst can resonate or react with other elements.

To reduce the elemental resistance of the monster that reduces the damage from Keqing's attacks, you can use Venti's skill first. The most powerful elemental reaction for Keqing is Superconduct. So, you need a Hydro supporter like Xingqiu. During the phase of Superconduct, her normal attacks and charged attacks cause more physical DMG on enemies.

#2. Stellar Restoration & Reactions

Stellar Restoration is the electro skill of Keqing. She can cause higher Electro DMG with her normal attacks. The best ATK combo with Stellar Restoration is Overloaded. It can be done perfectly after using the Pyro bursts of Klee, Xinyan, or Yanfei. Then, switch to Venti or Kazuha to cause the wind swirls to increase the area of the fire.

Keqing Overloaded
The overloaded reaction makes Keqing's attacks more powerful.

Next, Keqing can cause Overloaded reactions - the most powerful elemental reactions with her skills and normal attacks. Besides, she can dodge enemy bursts and aim attacks with her elemental skills. She can move quickly and avoid being aimed.

Bonus: Is Keqing Good?

Keqing is one of the most powerful and useful Electro characters in Genshin Impact. Besides, she is very easy to ascend and enhance to get the maximum power. Moreover, she has a new stunning skin called 'Opulent Splendor' in the current version 2.4. So, you should try to pull for her from the permanent character banner.

Keqing will look better with the new Opulent Splendor festival skin.

Her best weapons and artifact sets are also available to collect after the Electro nation of Inazuma. These Electro DMG buffs make Keqing stronger than she was in previous versions. After this nation is released, all Electro characters, including Keqing are better with local artifacts and materials.

With the best weapon for Keqing, you can build a powerful Electro DPS team to deal with strong and dangerous bosses. You can get her new skin to make Keqing look better.
