Probably, it will be hard to know what the best build for Qiqi as one of playable character in Genshin Impact. So, in this page, we are going to share information related to recommended builds for Qiqi.
Recommended Builds for Qiqi
This healer build for Qiqi is going to focuses on making sure your team is always healthy in single play and co-op. We would focus on leveling up her elemental skill and burst because that is where her healing kit is focused on. Qiqi’s normal attack will only be used to apply Fortune-Preserving Talisman. Thus, it is not your highest priority.
Recommended weapon for Qiqi is the Skyward Sword. You have to know that Skyward Sword is a 5-star weapon which has the secondary effect of energy recharge. This build is going to depend heavily on using her elemental skill and burst. Energy recharge is very important so you are able to use those skills faster. Besides, it has one of the highest base power for a sword and has the Sky-Piercing Fang ability. This ability will grants the user increased CRIT Rate, movement ATK SPD, SPD, and on her normal attack once Qiqi uses her elemental burst. The effect is going to allow Qiqi to hit faster and give more damage overall.
Also, the Sacrificial Sword can be used since it has energy recharge for its secondary stat. The skill and composed works well to fight her long cool down as it has an opportunity to reset Qiqi’s elemental skill cool down. For your information, Sacrificial Sword is a 4-star weapon in Genshin Impact which is easier to obtain than the Skyward Sword.
Another option that you can use for Qiqi is Favonius Sword. However it depend on CRIT hits to activate its skill. Because this build does not focus on CRIT Rate, it is going to be more based on luck once it does activate so we would not recommend it compared to the other two weapon options above.
The best artifact set for a healer for Qiqi is the Maiden Beloved. At a 4-piece set, Qiqi is going to get 15 percent healing effectiveness, and using her elemental skill and elemental burst will be able to increase healing to the party. Attack and energy recharge must be your top stats for your artifacts as that could guarantee you the best healing output. Also, energy recharge will allow you to utilize your skills faster. Aside from that, Healing Bonus will be nice because it would stack with Qiqi’s healing bonus she gets from her ascension levels.
If you want to focus on a more DPS build for Qiqi, this function build is going to work best if she is your main damage dealer. Her skills scale with her attack, causing her a viable damage dealer if you do select to go down that route. This build is going to focus on both her healing potential and deal damage at the same time. You are going to want to focus on Qiqi’s normal attack and elemental skill to balance healing and attacking. Her elemental burst will take less priority if you want to conserve resources.
Her recommend weapon is the Aquila Favonia. It is a 5-star weapon which increases physical damage. Its passive effect, Falcon’s Defiance, will increases ATK by 20 percent and deals damage to nearby opponents, and heals Qiqi based on her attack stat. This weapon is very extraordinary for this build as it makes Qiqi to deal damage while keeping herself healthy.
There is another recommended weapon for Qiqi. It is The Flute. We think that it is another solid option that you can use for Qiqi as its ability to unleash up to 200 percent ATK DMG to surrounding opponents. This very pairs with Qiqi’s rapid melee strikes, as she is able to collect 5 Harmonic chords easily to trigger The Flute’s effect.
Other options of recommended weapons for Qiqi are the Prototype Rancour or the Fillet Blade. The Prototype Rancour will serves as a substitute for the Aquila Favonia. Once you hit your opponent, ATK of Qiqi and DEF will be able to increase based on the weapon’s refinement level. Also, this weapon can be easily got through boss fights. The Fillet Blade is able to be used in the early game since it is a 3-star weapon. But, in the late game the Fillet Blade will be able to fight to deal damage to the opponents and is not recommended.
The best artifact set must remain as the Maiden Beloved to improve her overall healing output. In this build, her healing is focused more on herself than on healing her teammates. Also, you are able to select using a 2-piece Gladiator’s Finale to give her 18 percent ATK along with a 2-piece Maiden Beloved. Aside from that, a 4-piece Noblesse Oblige set will be able to work if you plan on using her elemental burst often. The stats on her artifacts must still have a focus on ATK and Energy Recharge so she enable to hit hard and use her skills more frequently.
Qiqi Skill Talents
Qiqi works as a good support character with her skill to heal herself and her teammates. As we know that Qiqi is a 5-star Cryo sword user. Currently she is the best healer in the game of Genshin Impact and will ensure your team never dies with her skill to apply Fortune-Preserving Talisman. Opponents marked by Fortune-Preserving Talisman are going to regain health after you deal damage to that opponent.
For her normal attack (Ancient Sword Art), she launches six rapid melee attacks on her opponents. It is very easy to use, however is nothing special until you ascend to her 4th stage, that will give her the skill to trigger Fortune-Preserving Talisman with her normal attack. In this case, we would not focus on leveling this ability as much as her other abilities. We would not recommend her as your main DPS, however Qiqi will be able to be a combat healer because she is able to heal and also damage the opponents at the same time.
