Cherry on Top!: Deals Quantum DMG equal to 120% of Qingque’s ATK to a single enemy, and deals Quantum DMG equal to 50% of Qingque’s ATK to enemies adjacent to it. “Cherry on Top!” cannot recover Skill Points.

Technique- Game Solitaire

After using Technique, Qingque draws 2 jade tile(s) when the battle starts.

The best Qingque Light Cone is the 5-star weapon Before Dawn. This increases her CRIT DMG by 36% and her Skill and Ultimate DMG by 18%. After Qingque uses her Skill or Ultimate, she gains Somnus Corpus. After triggering a follow-up attack, Somnus Corpus will be consumed, and its DMG will increase by 48%.

Considering 5-star weapons are difficult to wish for, there are great 3-star and 4-star alternatives.

Today Is Another Peaceful Day is a 4-star Light Cone that increases the wearer’s DMG based on their Max Energy. DMG increases by 0.20% per point of Energy, up to 160 Energy. Qingque has an easy time stacking Energy, so she naturally gains a ton of damage from this Light Cone.
