Stellar Restoration
Hurls a Lightning Stiletto that annihilates her opponents like the swift thunder.
When the Stiletto hits its target, it deals Electro DMG to opponents 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.
"Humans are like moths, endlessly chasing the flame we call gods and adepti. But this light that I have here is my own."

Starward Sword
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 opponents simultaneously that deal multiple instances of Electro DMG. The final attack deals massive AoE Electro DMG.
The swiftest technique in Keqing's personal arsenal is fast enough to bring stars crashing down.

In-game Description
Keqing's specialty. This dish was not grilled. Instead, it was fried from within through the delicate application of Electro. A gentle bite reveals fragrant fish under the lightly charred skin, its taste perfectly balanced. So, is this how she survives in the wild? You really can't judge a book by its cover.

About Keqing: Work
My role is to manage real estate and construction in Liyue. Sure, Liyue is a vast place with abundant resources — but without proper planning, and if too much focus is placed on short-term profit, a great many things can go wrong.

About Keqing: Skepticism
What do you think has kept Liyue going over the last millennium? Rex Lapis? ...I disagree. We mortals have to fight for survival whatever happens. He just feels the need to come down here and poke his nose into everything that's going on for some reason... Hmph, people don't like to think about this, but should we really be trusting him to be an expert in everything?
Audio LanguageEnglishJapaneseChineseKorean
Audio Response
About Keqing: Self-Reflection
After I took on the management of so many of Liyue's affairs, I had a new-found respect for Rex Lapis and all his hard work over the last millennium. Recently, every time I come up against a difficult problem with no obvious solution, I find myself thinking: What would Rex Lapis do? Maybe he really IS an expert in everything, and I've got more left to learn than I realized...

About Us: Pursuing
You know why I like you? It's because you don't believe something just because it was said by a god. You make up your own mind. You ask the questions everyone else is too cowardly to ask, and when you don't get an answer, you keep looking till you find one. Oh don't worry — your way is definitely the right way. Who says gods don't make mistakes, anyway?

About Us: Trying

About Us: Encouragement
I used to be so naive. I genuinely believed I was on par with Rex Lapis... Seems I really overestimated myself. Hmm? Yes... You're right!

About the Vision: Skepticism
If a Vision means the approval of the gods, then I don't see why I should want one. In fact, I find it quite insulting... It's like trying to say everything I've ever achieved is all thanks to the gods looking out for me! Well, I got to where I am today through my own hard work. The gods had nothing to do with it.
Audio LanguageEnglishJapaneseChineseKorean

About the Vision: Reflection
Oh, so... Rex Lapis wanted me to have power beyond the average mortal so that I can be a great leader? Huh... I like to think I'd do an admirable job even without his blessing! Yeah, I'll show him... I won't give him any reason to be disappointed with me...

Something to Share: Initiative
In addition to my work with the Liyue Qixing, I do a lot of work for the public, too. Mostly the feedback is positive, but whenever I propose something like adding an extra hour to the workday, I come up against very strong resistance... I'm too forward-thinking, I suppose. Maybe I should start with a half hour instead?

Look, just because I own an idol or two does not mean that I idolize him, okay!?

Interesting Things
I once heard a Mondstadt fable about courage being what it takes for birds to learn to fly. But I think that you must first possess a yearning for the boundless skies before you would have any inclination, let alone the courage, to spread your wings and try to fly. For me, Liyue is that boundless sky.

About Zhongli
The gentleman from the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor? Clearly, he's an extremely learned individual, and I do have a lot of respect for him. But his mindset is too traditional for me — he thinks in the same tired old terms as Rex Lapis did... If he were more of an original thinker, I'm sure he'd be a great asset to me in reaching my objectives.

About Beidou
That captain is always flouting the rules, and her personality really rubs people the wrong way. That said, The Crux Fleet is indispensable to Liyue Harbor. It's a bit of an art, knowing when to enforce the rules and when it's in everyone's interests to be more lenient. Thing is, the Tianquan is supposed to be the one enforcing the rules, but she always seems to be too busy...

About Ningguang: Conflict
We do work together, but we couldn't be more opposite personality-wise. To her, Liyue Harbor is nothing more than a marketplace, and she'll do anything as long as it makes money for her. Doesn't she have any principles? Hmm, or maybe turning a profit IS her principle?

About Ningguang: Cooperation

About Xingqiu
I've heard his story — he was born into a well-to-do family, but wasn't keen on the family business, so he now devotes his time to being an envoy of justice. I have huge respect for that! Not everyone has the guts to follow their dreams when it means breaking with a long-standing family tradition.

About Ganyu: Skepticism
Who knows what Rex Lapis must have done to inspire such blind devotion from Ganyu... But her reluctance to be critical is not without its advantages. In the workplace, she'll carry out my instructions to the letter, even when I can tell she has her reservations. It's a good attitude to have as a career professional.
Audio LanguageEnglishJapaneseChineseKorean
Audio Response
About Ganyu: Reflection
I find myself getting a second opinion from her a lot these days. Lots of things come up that I just have no idea about, and of everyone in Liyue, she's probably the most familiar with Rex Lapis. Heh... I feel a bit awkward, though, because I used to be openly disparaging of Rex Lapis in front of her... But she doesn't seem to mind, so I guess I've got nothing to worry about...

About Yunjin
When you're passing by Heyu Tea House and have to squeeze your way through the biggest crowd you've seen in your life, that's when you know Yunjin's on stage performing. There's not a merchant in Liyue who wouldn't buy up the place if they had the chance, and Yunjin is the reason it would be worth every Mora.

About the Anemo Archon
Since Rex Lapis left us, the question of Liyue's future has been on my mind constantly. In addition to reviewing his own past deeds, I've been researching the other archons' modes of governance, too. Mondstadt's god is the one who baffles me the most though — how exactly do any of his actions contribute to the longevity of Mondstadt? It's completely beyond me.

About Yanfei
The way I see it, the law is a summary of things done the right way in the past. However, it should also be continuously adapted and improved to match the needs of the present.

Nothing exists independently, and there's nothing you can do to change that. So, when you drag your heels on one thing, you're actually causing chaos for a whole bunch of other connected issues, too.

More About Keqing: V
"The time has come for humanity to make its mark in the land of the Geo Archon"... Turns out that was quite an ambitious statement after all. But I want you to make me a promise: come and visit when the new Liyue Harbor is born. I will show you around. After all the help and support you've given me along the way, you deserve to see Liyue reborn with your own eyes. I owe you that much.

Keqing's Troubles
It's great that the quality of life in Liyue is improving for everyone. But one downside is the growing number of people who are happy to reap the rewards without doing their fair share of the work. The Liyue Qixing did not put in all this effort to create a more prosperous society just so people like them can loaf around.

Favorite Food
It makes no logical sense to be greedy with food, but for me, all rationality goes out the window when there's Golden Shrimp Balls involved... They're just irresistible. The taste of a single Golden Shrimp Ball brings me so much joy that all the stress of work just melts away.

Everything has a certain way it should taste. I won't touch anything that tries to break the mold, so no salted Almond Tofu for me, and no sweetened Lotus Seed and Bird Egg Soup either. It's just a total waste of perfectly good ingredients.

Character Details
Rex Lapis has brought prosperity and plenty to Liyue Harbor, and his rule and majesty have long passed into show and song, much to the delight of the people. But for someone in such proximity to a god, Keqing seems to lack the requisite respect the most.

"Hmph. Let's be real here, but does Morax really know everything?"

The Liyue Qixing deal with the day-to-day happenings in the Harbor, whether great or small, while Rex Lapis only descends once a year.

While history has shown that following Morax's lead has been the right call, Keqing believes that humans should have their pride and that their views deserve equal consideration.

As such, she often advocates different opinions from Rex Lapis, and is the first to put such views into practice.

Her radical actions have seen stellar results, but they have also attracted murmurings of opprobrium among those devoted to Rex Lapis.

As Keqing sees it, such opposition are the excuses of those who have grown complacent under the aegis of their deity, and who cannot consider the future of humanity of their own accord.

But someone must walk on the front line of the epoch and create a new path with their own hands — and the Yuheng star is determined to do her part in this endeavor.
Character Story 1
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 2
Keqing is the daughter of an illustrious Liyue family with a proud lineage, and she is better acquainted than most with the influence that Rex Lapis has over the people of Liyue.

Once every few years, in an almost cyclical fashion, a major reshuffle hits Liyue's economy after the Rite of Descension. Once Rex Lapis' new policies are announced, some families celebrate while others grieve.

The poor hope it will offer them the chance to finally make their fortunes while the wealthy pray that theirs will not be swept away in the changing tides. Rather than carefully analyzing the economic climate, merchants are more prone to making investments based on belief.

And in present-day Liyue, this is a forgivable strategy: Rex Lapis is a powerful deity and he can be relied on for all things.

But Keqing has her reservations about all this: What if, one day, Rex Lapis stops fulfilling his duty? Then what would become of the people of Liyue?

Liyue's present prosperity is akin to a magnificent sandcastle on the beach — humanity does not have the luxury of deciding when the tide will come in.

However, Keqing has been unable to garner majority support for her views. From most people's perspective, life is but a brief, insignificant moment in Liyue's long history, and there is no point in working oneself up into an existential quandary.

This perspective, as far as Keqing is concerned, is a lazy and cowardly one that denies there is any value at all in the existence of the human race. "If humans really have no value," Keqing retorts, "then why should we expect the gods to care about us so much?"

Unwilling to compromise on her beliefs, she cast her skepticism on everything — everything from Rex Lapis' loving-kindness, to the people's laziness, to the way that society runs.

Issues affecting humans' fate should be handled by humans, and humans are more than capable of handling them with finesse.

Finally, the day came of her now-famous speech at the Rite of Descension.

"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?"

On hearing these words, Rex Lapis burst into hearty laughter. But as for what exactly he was laughing about, only Rex Lapis himself knows.
Character Story 2
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 3
Some may be able to keep up with Keqing's forward-thinking ideas, but none can keep up with her pace of work.

Perhaps in an effort to become a role model for her people, she demands of herself to work ten times harder than the average person, and she cannot abide any measure of laziness or inefficiency.

Humans' abilities and lifespans are more limited than the gods'. This means that one has no hope of living to see the day when humans replace the gods as masters of our own universe if one allows apathy and hesitation to slow themselves down.

Because of this same mindset, she is never able to synchronize her work rhythm with the people around her.

Whatever the task, she does not rest until the job is done, and when something should take half the month to resolve, she will pull out all the stops to try and get it turned around within the next 48 hours.

Additionally, Keqing's notion of 'completing' something is far more ambitious than simply getting it 'finished' — she will make sure that every relevant detail is tied up too. To the outside observer, she seems to be both highly efficient and a perfectionist.

But not everyone is as self-motivated as Keqing. No assistant she hires ever makes it past the three-month mark.

She has received countless remonstrations urging her to be less impatient, but she meets each one with a stern rejection.

Still, she has, to some extent, come around to the idea that a high staff turnover is itself a manifestation of inefficiency, and made some concessions accordingly.

Today, if you encounter an assistant of Keqing's dealing with some matter three, four, or even five years ahead of time, don't be alarmed, this is completely normal. Keqing gave them a bit of a head start, but she'll be catching up before long.
Character Story 3

"Yesterday's experiences make me stronger today." This is one of the principles Keqing lives by.

Spending all of one's time at Yujing Terrace means seeing the same old things day after day. But to be able to think and act as swiftly as lightning, one needs a huge amount of experience to draw on.

So, if Keqing sees something that needs doing, why, she'll do it herself. For example, she once served for two months as a laborer to better decide how to refine a plan to improve their treatment.

It's hard to imagine that this young lady with so much authority vested in her has pulled carts at the Chasm, rammed earth at the south wharf, and waited tables at small diners.

In addition to working, she also once took the opportunity to gather evidence with which to report a powerful individual known for his abuses.

He was apprehended without any clue as to how he had been exposed, but when he was brought to the interrogation chamber by the Millelith, there he saw a striking young lady dressed in fine robes.

"Hey! Haven't we... haven't we met somewhere before?"

The words felt foolish the moment they rolled off his tongue, even to him.

Especially because the Millelith then introduced her as follows: "This is the Yuheng of the Liyue Qixing. Know your place and keep your distance!"

—Exactly, so what was he thinking!?
Character Story 4
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 5
Rex Lapis' departure has put Liyue Harbor through a great deal of hardship. All the duties Rex once fulfilled have been taken up by the Qixing and the Eight Trades.

Now that divine rule is a thing of the past, the old strictures left behind can't simply be continued wholesale. But to establish new laws for Liyue, whose history spans several thousand years, is no mean feat.

At first, Keqing was incredibly enthusiastic about this task, having long prepared for this day when she might finally show her mettle. But several months in, and she was still stuck on a single task, land infrastructure — and it was driving her up the wall.

No matter how hard she struggled, the mountain of tasks was like a quagmire. She was making difference, yes, but not nearly with as much ease as Rex Lapis.

"Why can I only do this much? Why... can't I do it better?"

Of course, she had long understood the wherefores here.

Her lack of respect for gods had somehow received their recognition all the same, yes, but that didn't mean that she was ready to simply replace them.

But she was still Keqing, resolute and tenacious.

From that day on, she shut herself in, studying classics of various kinds to learn all that she needed. Placing herself lowest, she accepted all that she had hitherto not known with open arms.

During this period, she gained a certain calm, slowly discarding the "opprobrium" she had long held against Rex Lapis.

They were both working for the good of Liyue, after all — and two people who love the same thing need not be on opposing sides.

She also seemingly came to an understanding concerning the smile Rex Lapis had given her during that Rite of Descension. It was, Keqing now believes, an expression of acknowledgment and expectation.

She hasn't lost any of her forceful and decisive manner, no. But sometimes, when she feels lost, she will stop and think: "What would Rex Lapis do at a moment such as this?"
Character Story 5
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 6
Keqing, who has dedicated a large portion of her energies to Liyue Harbor, indulges in an unexpected pastime when she can spare a moment — shopping.

On her days off, she changes into ordinary clothes, contacts a few close friends, and enjoys a day of strolling around Feiyun Slope and Chihu Rock, just enjoying the act of buying things.

After Rex Lapis' departure, Keqing managed to maintain this method of decompression despite her busier schedule, though with one subtle difference.

On one of her shopping trips, she happened upon a small and unremarkable stall that sold cute Rex Lapis clay figurines with tiny bodies and big heads.

Persuading her friends to visit the silk store opposite, she approached the stall, took a figurine in her hand, and began to examine it.

She knew that she didn't have much time. So, after glancing around to make sure that no-one was watching, she paid for, picked up, and packed away her prize in one swift single movement.

But no sooner had she placed the figurine into her bag and heaved a sigh of relief than one of her friends, silk bundles in tow, tapped her on the shoulder.

In the end, all was revealed. Her friends were quite curious: Wasn't Keqing a skeptic among skeptics? Why would she buy one of these?

"For... For introspection, of course! There's nothing wrong with self-reflection, is there?"

So she said, and it would be convincing, too — if Keqing didn't already have an entire shelf dedicated to Rex Lapis self-reflection memorabilia...
Survival Hairpin
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 4
Though she is of noble birth, Keqing tries to keep her luxuries to the bare minimum that would befit her position as one of the Liyue Qixing.

And when she is outside the borders of the prosperous city, she will often head deep into uninhabited areas to strengthen her knowledge and sharpen her will.

She has experienced countless challenges, but unlike backpackers and adventurers, she does not bring anything with but her hairpin and her sword.

As long as it is infused with Electro, a hairpin can become a knife of unmatched sharpness. Cutting grass, chopping firewood, skinning game and carving bone are all well within its capabilities.

If faced with a drop of great height, she only needs to pin it into the ground, tie rattans to it, and rappel down.

It also serves as an incredibly sensitive security device when camping out. Any unusual movements nearby will cause it, when tipped over and placed perpendicular to the ground, to alert and awaken Keqing immediately.

It can even be used to fish: Keqing just hurls it into the water when she's feeling peckish, and there will always be a few fish that will get knocked out by the electric shock — and of course, finding a stick to grill the fish on is not a problem either.

Some narrow-minded folk have ridiculed Keqing's hairpin for being old and worn, but this does not anger her. Indeed, she considers it a point of pride.

"Its weathered form is what gives it its charm."
Vision
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 6
Keqing is likely a skeptic without equal when it comes to the value of Visions.

She knows that everything she has is the result of her own hard work, but that in the eyes of others, credit has been given instead to her Vision.

She once believed that this purple crystal had stolen the pride due originally to her, and that it was both a challenge and an insult from the gods.

In fact, she has tried to destroy her Vision countless times — she's left it in a huge fire for three days and three nights, run over it with a minecart full of rocks, and has even hurled it from the heights of the Jade Chamber.

Unfortunately, she has never been successful.

With no options left, and not wanting it to fall into the wrong hands, Keqing was forced to accept the Vision as part of her life.

Over time, Keqing came to appreciate her Vision. She realized that this item did not actually have any divine will imbued within it, and that it also had numerous practical uses. Thus, she decided to make use of it.

"The source of power is far less important than the character of its user."

Regardless of how she may once have regarded it, Keqing's Vision and its powers have become a part of her.

Thank the Archons she hadn't destroyed it back then, or she'd have regretted it for sure — oh, the hardships of being a pragmatist.

      While the Aqula gets higher atk stat, if you build right, lions roar deals mondo damage, i have crit rate substat and electro dmg cup, full gladiator set, she deals 10-13k every 6 seconds with her skill, and 50-80k with her burst. physical keq isnt that viable as you need to costantly use her skill to max out her damage.

      Keqing`s ascension stat is the crit.damage and only it can grow up to +38.4%, those with crit.rate ascension stat are Diluc and Xiao with max of +19.2% to crit.rate. The same goes for other characters that have their own main stats and limits, which wouldn`t be risen any higher or make any other stats to grow just because you`ve wanted it. Currently there doesn`t exists any character that have such a broken passive as you’ve said, that can make them to have more % bonuses from the arfifact stats – the only character with similarly weird passive is the Childe, who can get +1 level to normal attack skill for himself and all other party members.

      The only thing that you can get and need to do with Keqing is to rise the crit.rate to higher values with less effort with balancing the crit stats – it`s always better to have the 1:2 crit rate to crit.damage ratio, which is hard for Keqing and Ganyu without using the weapon or circlet with crit.rate, so making it 1:3 is still okay. Anyway there exist such a things like food buffs/Cryo resonance/+15 crit.rate buff after using the ult, so you can get a passable final crit.rate and ratio even if your original crit stats are around 50:200. Something as dumb as 90.8:101.2 ratio that Mihoyo have used in the Keqing`s test run is what players NEVER need to do, as high crit.rate with weak crits is just as bad as rare strong crits, yet you still can fix the last case with few methods.

    The cooldown begins to count at the first cast, aka the moment the stilleto gets released. You were probably triggering the stilleto a bit later, making it look like it has a shorter cooldown than it actually does.
