All Qiqi skills, talents, and ascension materials in Genshin Impact

Here's all the crucial information you need to know about Qiqi in Genshin Impact.

Qiqi is a 5-star Cryo character and one of the veteran premium characters in the game, available since the release of the game. Qiqi is everyone’s favorite zombie girl and assistant at the Bubu Pharmacy, and her undying nature allows her to prop up her team’s defense. Qiqi is one of the game’s premier healers and aims to keep your team healthy and safe. While many fear the day Qiqi will pop up on the Standard or Limited Event Wish banner, she’s still a capable healer in the right hands.

How to unlock Qiqi in Genshin Impact

Qiqi is a “standard” 5-star character, meaning you can obtain her in a couple of different ways. She is one of the 5 stars you can obtain from the Standard Banner and a potential drop during every 5-star pull. As with other “standard” 5-star characters, you have a chance at obtaining a Qiqi on the Limited Event Wish banner as well if the featured 5-star character is not guaranteed for you via the Pity System.
