Rating 6.5/10

Yan Qing is a stargenerator. His entire kit, even to his NP, is made for providing stars. And he does this very well, in a rather fun manner. Sadly, it’s not enough to make him relevant or that useful.

Yan Qing is good at what he does, it’s just that, it’s not that important of a niche. It doesn’t help that similar star generators like Cursed Arm Hassan fills in the same role either. Whereas Hassan has his survivability making him a reliable generator even for long battles, Yan Qing just doesn’t do enough to merit his usage.

Yan Qing does however, offer his unique 3rd skill, which gives even Berserkers the chance to absorb stars.

Pros

  • Unique 3rd skill reduces his star absorption rate to 0
  • Able to generate stars well
  • Can quickly charge his NP with his first skill, which also generates stars

Cons

  • Extremely low NP damage, the lowest out of all Assassins
  • Star generation as a niche is largely unneeded
  • Assassin’s class multiplier and Quick’s card multiplier would cause a decrease in DPT

Strategies & Tips

As a star generator, Yan Qing is of course paired with damagers who require support making stars. Yan Qing makes the stars, and the damager absorbs them. His first skill is used for him to charge his NP quickly with crits, which he would use to create even more stars. This is meant as a continuous cycle that allows him to constantly create stars.

Unfortunately, with Yan Qing’s overall lack of utility or other supportive functions, he’s left with a niche that’s largely unneeded for most of the game’s content. He has no survival functions or any utility that can counter gimmicks or provide crowd control, nor has he any features that can help protect the team.

That said, Yan Qing does offer a unique 3rd skill, which can be used to give even Berserker damagers chances to deal crits.

However, it is still difficult to deploy him to battle, due to how limited and unneeded his use is.

Noble Phantasm

Yan Qing’s NP hits for very mediocre damage and reduces an enemy’s critical damage by 20-40%. The critical damage reduction seems like a good feature at first, but it doesn’t really help that much in stopping an enemy from one-shotting your Servants through a crit. His NP’s main appeal is the fact that it hits 11 times, which means it can generate a good amount of stars when used.

Best Servants to Work with

Servants that could use stars, but can’t produce or absorb them on their own

There are a number of Servants who could always use more stars, but have no way to absorb them. Yan Qing can aid them in a way, through his good generation and unique 3rd skill.

Quick Servants

Quick teams and Quick Servants are Yan Qing’s natural niche and allies. In a Quick team he would be freely able to perform his role for his allies, and their decks would support each other. However, Quick teams are mostly outdated, as the card itself and the Meta has a lot of problems, so it’s not a very optimal method of playing.

Best CEs

Increase in Quick Performance

Quick up increases Yan Qing’s damage, NP gain, and stargen on Quicks, which benefits his stargen support role and increases his overall damage. As someone whose NP is meant for creating more stars, his boost in NP gain would also be a good tool for his role.

Gain Stars each Turn

As a stargenerator, Yan Qing mostly relies on his hits, which can give you a lesser amount of DPT overall. Giving him such a CE allows him to generate stars even more, and as time passes by.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

Skill Priority: 3/1/2 or 3/2/1

  • Chinese Martial Arts EX / Cooldown: 7-5

    Increase Star Absorption rate (1 turn)
    Increase NP gain (1 turn)

    This skill is mostly used for Yan Qing to quickly charge his NP, to generate even more stars. Using this skill with an AQQ chain with crits would quickly charge his NP, which can create even more stars for his damager.
  • Espionage A / Cooldown: 7-5

    Increase Star Absorption Rate (3 turns)

    Pretty standard for a generator.
  • Skillful Star A+ / Cooldown: 8-6

    Decrease own Star Absorption rate (1 turn)
    Gain critical stars

    Yan Qing’s unique skill allows him to be an interesting star generator. By lowering his own star absorb to effectively 0, he is able to increase the chances a damager, even a Berserker, would absorb stars. This makes him a fairly interesting and useful generator. Sadly, it comes at a rather long cooldown, which when paired with his lack of ability to aid the team in long battles, doesn’t improve his overall usefulness by much.
