Qiqi provides strong healing with the right build, but she can feel clunky. Her field-time requirement, long cooldowns, and lack of particle generation can make her frustrating to play. She is however a solid pick in Co-Op Domains.
Skill > Burst
Leveling both of her talents will increase her healing. Skill is only prioritized over burst since the burst takes so long to charge.
Main stats: ER/ATK/Healing Bonus or ATK
ER is prioritized over ATK since Qiqi does not generate her own particles. ATK can be prioritized if she has enough ER from other sources.
Sacrificial Sword is almost a requirement on Qiqi since it solves her horrible skill uptime.
These weapons provide ER, helping recharge Qiqi's burst.
CRIT Rate increased by 4~8%.Gains Skypiercing Might upon using Elemental Burst: Increases Movement SPD by 10%, increases ATK SPD by 10%, and Normal and Charged hits deal additional DMG equal to 20~40% of ATK. Skypiercing Might lasts for 12s.
These set combinations massively boost her healing output, but may end up excessive if using ATK sands and weapon.
These 2-piece sets provide very similar performance.
If Qiqi still needs ER, you can swap in one or two of the sets below. 4 star set artifacts may be used on Flower and Plume as they provide sacrificable stats.
4PC Ocean-Hued Clam will boost Qiqi's healing as well as her damage output. Qiqi will need to reach the 30k HP cap in order to maximize her damage output. If her healing is still excessive, you can swap out ATK% for ER.
At the end of the duration, the Sea-Dyed Foam will explode, dealing DMG to nearby opponents based on 90% of the accumulated healing. (This DMG is calculated similarly to Reactions such as Electro-Charged, and Superconduct, but it is not affected by Elemental Mastery, Character Levels, or Reaction DMG Bonuses). Only one Sea-Dyed Foam can be produced every 3.5 seconds. Each Sea-Dyed Foam can accumulate up to 30,000 HP (including overflow healing). There can be no more than one Sea-Dyed Foam active at any given time.This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.
Although the 2PC effect is wasted on Qiqi, she can provide great uptime on the 4PC effect if she uses a Sacrificial Sword. This gives your team a decent 20% ATK buff as long as her skill is active. Effectively a pseudo-4PC Noblesse set.
