In Honkai: Star Rail, talents are silent skills that are used when certain conditions are met. Some make strikes better, while others help.
In Honkai: Star Rail, talents are basic skills that each character has. Every character in the game has a unique Talent that can do things like give a unit an extra turn, counter attacks, or increase damage. But not all of them are made the same.
Talents can be upgraded in the same way that Skills and Ultimates can, through the Traces choice in the main character menu. By doing this, their effectiveness will go up, and each Talent will get extra benefits. At the time of the world launch, there were 22 playable characters, including the Trailblazer. Some of their Talents are better than others.
Dan Heng – Superiority Of Reach
Dan Heng will be a mainstay for many of your teams. He is a free-to-play character you get as part of Honkai: Star Rail. Unless you get Sampo through the flags, he’s one of the few units with the Wind element. Because of this, it’s important to know how his skill works.
When Dan is the target of an ally’s ability, whether it heals him or gives him a buff, his Wind Resistance Penetration will be improved, letting him do more damage. Because of this, you should think about putting Dan on a team with a support character who boosts stats to really increase his power.
Himeko – Victory Rush
Himeko is a five-star figure who isn’t that great most of the time. She does good fire damage and specializes in strikes that hit multiple targets at once, which can be useful. Victory Rush, her talent, might be the best thing about her kit. This power comes into play when you defeat three enemies in a fight.
Himeko gets a stack for each Break that is done to her. When she has three stacks, she will use an AoE move after another character attacks. This move does a lot of damage and has a good bonus, but you have to cause a break for it to work.
Asta – Astrometry
Overall, Asta’s gear is a bit too much to handle. So, she will be one of the two free fire characters you get. The other will become available later in Honkai: Star Rail. Every time Asta hits an enemy, her skill makes the attack of every other party member go up by 7%. If the enemy is weak to fire, this will automatically add an extra stack.
This means that she gives each member of the party an attack buff that can be stacked just for hitting. It gets weaker over time, but you can use it to do a little more harm without doing much to earn it.
Trailblazer (MC) – Treasure Of The Architects
The Trailblazer eventually gains access to the Fire element, which might be considered a small spoiler. This means that you can switch them from dealing Physical damage to dealing Fire damage. When you do this, their whole kit changes. In Genshin, the Traveler can change the elements at the Statues of the Seven in a similar way.
March 7th – Girl Power
March is a great shield tank in Star Rail, and as a free-to-play unit, anyone can use her right away. Her fight skill makes a strong shield for one ally, and it works well with characters who already have shields. When an enemy hits a party member who is covered by a shield, March will rush in and do a follow-up attack to counter the attack.
The attack doesn’t do a lot of damage, but it happens twice every turn, which is a lot if you’re up against a big group of enemies. Her counter attack does damage with ice, which is great if any of her enemies are weak to that element.
Gepard – Unyielding Will
A lot of skills help the whole group, but Gepard’s only helps him. Gepard can come back to life once per fight. If he dies in battle, his Unyielding Will skill will go off, and he will get his HP back right away and get back into the fight. This can be improved like other skills, giving him more HP when he comes back to life. This skill is very useful for a tank, which is a defense character.
Gepard doesn’t heal a lot of HP and can only be used once, but it’s still one of the best skills in the game. Realistically, someone as tough and defensive as Gepard shouldn’t die too often, but this is a great backup plan in case he gets pushed too much in a fight.
Herta – Fine, I’ll Do It Myself
Compared to many other units, Herta isn’t a very good one overall. This ability is one of the best parts of her kit because it lets her follow up each AoE hit with several more.
When an enemy’s HP drops to half or less, the ability goes off, and Herta comes in fighting. Each hit will count as damage from ice, and the amount of harm depends on her attack stat. If you can set up Herta correctly, you can deal with large groups of enemies quickly, especially if you use the auto-battle feature.
Bailu – Gourdful Of Elixir
As always, healing is one of the most important parts of Honkai: Star Rail. This is especially true since there are only two doctors in Happy Wheels game right now. When compared to Natasha, Bailu is solely focused on healing party members, and her Ultimate ability greatly enhances this ability.
Seele – Resurgence
Seele is a powerhouse. He is the first five-star figure to appear on a limited-time banner. She does a lot of damage and can mess up the order of turns with her ability. Resurgence will happen whenever Seele kills an enemy with her attack, skill, or ultimate.
This means that Seele will get another turn right after hers and before the next person. This lets you kill enemies all at once, even if they are close to dying. The turn order is a big part of battle in Star Rail, and Seele’s ability to change it in this way makes him very powerful.
Bronya – Leading The Way
When Bronya uses her standard attack, she moves up in the turn order, making her next turn come around faster than usual. This skill is a big reason why Bronya’s kit is so good. She is made to move friends’ turns closer together and move the enemy’s turn farther away. Within reason, of course, or else she would be able to stop the enemies from acting.
Since Honkai: Star Rail is a turn-based game, this is very broken. Consider this a normal routine for Bronya: after a normal attack, she brings herself closer to acting, and then she uses her skill to give another ally a turn. Using this to her advantage lets her take control of the turn order every time she can.
