Artifacts and Weapons

The best artifact set for Keqing is a two-piece set of Bloodstained Chivalry and Gladiator. The two-piece set of Gladiator gives an 18% ATK bonus, while the two-piece set of Bloodstained Chivalry offers a 25% physical damage bonus. Other than that, you can go for a full four-piece Gladiator set. The 2 piece set of the artifacts offers an increase in ATK by 18%. Moreover, the 4 piece set increases the Normal ATK by 35% for the sword, claymore, and polearm users.

Lastly, you can even go for the new artifact that miHoYo released in the recent update, Pale Flame. The two-piece set of this artifact will increase physical damage by 25%. On the other hand, the four-piece set will increase ATK by 9% for seven seconds whenever the wielder’s elemental skill hits an opponent. Furthermore, this effect stacks up to two times and can occur every 0.3 seconds.

However, it seems like you can’t get the most benefit from the four-piece set of Pale Flame. Therefore, you can even use a two-piece set of Bloodstained Chivalry and Pale Flame. This will help you increase your physical damage bonus by 50%.

The best weapon for physical Keqing is undoubtedly the Aquila Favonia. It is a five-star weapon; hence, the drop rate of getting it is very low. However, if you ever get lucky with the gacha system, then using it on her would be the best choice. Its second sub stat provides a physical damage bonus which helps a lot in getting that additional physical damage bonus.

Most players won’t have this weapon in their inventory. The best four-star weapon is Prototype Rancour, as it also has a physical damage bonus as the secondary sub stat. Furthermore, it is easily accessible as you can craft it from the blacksmith in the game.

Team composition for Keqing in Genshin Impact

The Electro characters have a huge plus point as physical damage because of one of the elemental reactions they can produce. Super-Conduct is an elemental reaction that Electro and Cryo elements can trigger. It helps in reducing the enemies’ physical resistance by 40%.

Therefore, it would be best to use characters like Rosaria, Kaeya, or Diona with Keqing to get the most damage from her. Overall, Keqing is a great physical damage dealer, and having her in your team will help you a lot in your journey.
