Keqing (Chinese: 刻晴, Kèqíng) is a playable character in Genshin Impact.

Profile

Introduction

The Yuheng of the Liyue Qixing. Keqing has much to say about Rex Lapis' unilateral approach to policymaking in Liyue ⁠— but in truth, gods admire skeptics such as her quite a lot.
She firmly believes that humanity's future should be determined by humans themselves, and that they can even do better than the archons and adepti have done for them. In order to prove this, she works harder than anyone else.

–Description from Official Website[1]

Personality

One of the Liyue Qixing, Keqing has an uncompromising belief in actions over words. If she sees something that needs doing, she'll do it herself. For example, she traveled around Liyue and carefully memorized each detail of the land so that she may one day be able to maximize the utility of every last inch of Liyue.

Keqing deals with the day-to-day affairs of Liyue, whether great or small, while Rex Lapis only descends once a year.
To many, the millennia of prosperity that Liyue has enjoyed serve to legitimize Rex Lapis' guidance of the city. But Keqing has her reservations about all this, viewing Liyue's present prosperity as akin to a magnificent sandcastle on the beach — humanity does not have the luxury of deciding when the tide will come in.

Rex Lapis has watched over Liyue for a millennium. But what about the next millennium? What about the next ten, or the next hundred millennia? How long are we expecting this status quo to last?

It is this unanswered question that drives Keqing to work relentlessly and remain diligent.
From most people's perspective, there is no point in working oneself up like this. But Keqing cannot sit by idly and ignore this hidden danger.

The people of Liyue have never considered navigating the future on their own terms. But someone must walk on the front line of the epoch and forge a new path with their own hands.

From most people's perspective, there is no point in working oneself up like this. But Keqing cannot sit by idly and ignore this hidden danger.[2]

Appearance

She has light purple hair tied into twin-tails that reach waist length, and there is a small braid running on the side of her bangs. Above her head are styled odango shaped to look similar to cat ears. Her eyes are of dark amethyst with arched brows. She also has light, fair skin.

She wears a white, sleeveless outfit with a dark blue skirt. There are also violet plumes of feather fastened in the hem of her violet-gold gradient overcoat. Her sky blue sleeves and the hem of her skirt are ruffled, alongside her sleeves matching the feathers she wears. In addition, she wears a tasseled choker and dark gloves.

Combat Info

Talents

Type Name Icon Info
Combat Talent - Normal/Charged Attack Yunlai Swordsmanship Talent Yunlai Swordsmanship.png Normal Attack: Perform up to 5 rapid strikes.

Charged Attack: Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash 2 rapid sword strikes.
Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Combat Talent - Elemental Skill Stellar Restoration Talent Stellar Restoration.png Hurls a Lightning Stiletto that annihilates her enemies like the swift thunder. When the Stiletto hits its target, it deals Electro DMG to enemies in a small AoE, and places a Stiletto Mark on the spot hit.

Hold: Hold to adjust the direction in which the Stiletto shall be thrown. Stilettos thrown by the Hold attack mode can be suspended in mid-air, allowing Keqing to jump to them when using Stellar Restoration a second time.
Lightning Stiletto: If Keqing uses Stellar Restoration again or uses a Charged Attack while its duration lasts, it will clear the Stiletto Mark and produce different effects:

  • If she uses Stellar Restoration again, she will blink to the location of the Mark and unleash one slashing attack that deals AoE Electro DMG. When blinking to a Stiletto that was thrown from a Holding attack, Keqing can leap across obstructing terrain.
  • If Keqing uses a Charged Attack, she will ignite a series of thundering cuts at the Mark's location, dealing AoE Electro DMG.
Combat Talent - Elemental Burst Starward Sword Talent Starward Sword.png Keqing unleashes the power of lightning, dealing Electro DMG in an AoE.

She then blends into the shadow of her blade, striking a series of thunderclap-blows to nearby enemies simultaneously that deal multiple instances of Electro DMG. The final attack deals massive AoE Electro DMG.

Passive Talent 1 Thundering Penance Talent Thundering Penance.png Within 5s of recasting Stellar Restoration while a Lightning Stiletto is present, Keqing's Normal and Charged Attacks are converted to Electro DMG.
Passive Talent 2 Aristocratic Dignity Talent Aristocratic Dignity.png When casting Starward Sword, Keqing's CRIT Rate is increased by 15%, and her Energy Recharge is increased by 15%. This effect lasts for 8s.
Passive Talent 3 Land's Overseer Talent Land's Overseer.png When dispatched on an expedition in Liyue, time consumed is reduced by 25%.
