Here’s everything you need to know about Honkai Star Rail’s Qingque.

What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Qingque build?

Light cone substitutes The Seriousness of Breakfast

Main stats Body – Crit rate/damage
Feet – Speed
Link rope – Attack
Planar sphere – Quantum damage bonus
Sub stats Crit rate, crit damage, speed, attack

Qingque’s affiliation with the Erudution path places her in the role of a multi-target DPS, though her first attack is a single-target attack. From this, we can see that she needs plenty of attack and of course, a quantum damage boost from relics, if we’re lucky enough to grab those.

Qingque’s attack buffs rely on a random selection of tiles (you can see them under her icon on the screen) that she collects while in battle. When she gets four matching tiles, she automatically enhances her next attack – however, there is no way to assist her in doing this, so there’s some reliance on RNG. Putting a set of attack-boosting relics on Qingque won’t go amiss for her build.

How do I use Honkai Star Rail’s Qingque?

Qingque can deal a lot of damage – a Qingquillion, as the community says – with her enhanced skill. Enhancing it can be quite point-hungry, but the payoff is worth it. As soon as it’s her turn, hit the enhance and see what happens. Sometimes her skill can automatically enhance depending on which tiles she gains.

At later eidolons, Qingque gets a follow-up move where she repeats her action, adding to her abilities.

What are the best light cones for Qingque?

These are the Honkai Star Rail light cones we recommend for Qingque. Today is Another Peaceful Day is made with Qingque in mind, so is the best choice, but we all know what that pesky gacha is like…

Light cone Effect How to obtain
Today is Another Peaceful Day (four-star) Increases Qingque’s damage based on her max energy. Her damage increases by 0.2% per point, up to a total of 160 energy Gacha
Night on the Milky Way (five-star) For every enemy on the field, Qingque’s attack increases by 8% up to five times. If an enemy is inflicted with weakness break, Qingque’s damage increases by 24% for one turn Gacha
Sagacity (three-star) Increases Qingque’s attack by 24% for two turns when she unleashes her ultimate Gacha
The Seriousness of Breakfast (four-star) Increases Qingque’s damage by 24%. Each time she defeats an enemy, it increases further and stacks up to four times. Level reward

What are the best relics for Qingque?

Ideally, your Qingque should have a set of the Genius of Brilliant Stars relics, but there are other options if the RNG isn’t giving you what you need.

To further boost Qingque’s attack, we recommend equipping her with the Space Sealing Station planar ornament set. This is one of the easier Planetary Ornament sets to get and it gives both her normal attack and ultimate a nice little buff, especially if her speed is increased.

Relic Effect How to obtain
Genius of Brilliant Stars Two pieces equipped: Increases quantum damage by 10%
Four pieces equipped: When Qingque attacks an enemy, the damage dealt ignores 10% of their defense. If the enemy has a quantum weakness, ignore an additional 10%
Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Providence in Jarilo-V’s Everwinter Hill
Musketeer of Wild Wheat Two pieces equipped: Increases attack by 12%
Four pieces equipped: increases Qingque’s speed by 6% and her basic attack damage by 10%
Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Drifting in Jarilo-VI’s Corridor of Fading Echoes
The Ashblazing Grand Duke Two equipped: Increases follow-up damage by 20%
Four equipped: 
When Qingque uses a follow-up attack against an enemy, it increases her attack by 6% each time the follow-up deals damage. This can stack a maximum of eight times and lasts for three turns

What are the best Honkai Star Rail Qingque team comps?

Using characters like Tingyun and Bronya, in classic HSR form, will add a lot to Qingque’s performance. You can also use Silver Wolf to make a strong mono-quantum team that ignores enemy weaknesses. Remember that Qingque’s skill can be skill-point hungry, so it is best to pair her with units who can recover skill points, and not the likes of Imbibitor Lunae.
