1) The Black Sword

The Best Crit Weapon.

  • Why I Chose This Weapon: Crit rate stat can help enhance the damage output for Keqing. 
Rarity Base Attack Critical Rate Passive 
4 Stars 42 – 510 6% – 27.6%
  • Normal and charged attacks boosted by 20% – 40%
  • Regenerates 60% – 100% of damage as HP from critical charged and normal attacks

Although the black sword is a 4-star weapon, when paired with Keqing, this weapon takes a close second to the jade cutter. The black sword has an extremely good base attack with a solid critical rate sub stat. The sword also has a passive which gives you a 20% boost on normal and charge attacks at refinement rank 1.

The pros and cons for the Black Sword are mentioned below: 

  • Charged attacks get increased by 20%. 
  • Good damage output. 
  • Better options available. 

2) Lion’s Roar

The Best F2P Weapon.

  • Why I Chose This Weapon: Lion’s Roar is a great f2p option with high damage potential. 
Rarity Base Attack Critical Rate Passive 
4 Stars 42 – 510 9% – 41.3%
  • Deals 20% – 36% more damage to opponents affected by Electro or Pyro

The Lion’s Roar is a solid weapon with a decent base attack, boasting sub stat and passive made for Keqing. The reason this weapon seems so perfectly designed for Keqing is the fact that it is her lore weapon. The bane of fire and thunder passive allows for a 20% increase in damage to enemies affected by electro which makes it an almost constant buff for Electro Keqing in my opinion. 

The pros and cons for Lion’s Roar are below in my opinion: 

  • Good damage output. 
  • Solid f2p option.
  • Better options available with four star options.
