Bronya’s best build is as a support unit using But the Battle Isn’t Over light cone. You should buff her speed and support capabilities with Messenger Traversing Hackerspace and her best planar ornaments are Broken Keel.

When building Bronya, we recommend focusing on increasing her energy restoration rate and speed before anything else, as this allows her to buff her allies more frequently. You can also consider buffing her crit damage to power up her ultimate’s benefits.

How do I use Bronya?

Bronya is a support character who applies buffs and removes debuffs from her team. She deals very little damage herself, but her skills make her a valuable enabler capable of pushing her allies through to victory.

As such, she’s very flexible and can be an asset to most team comps. You won’t be using her basic attack much, but her skill and ultimate are amazing tools for helping your DPS units pack a punch.

What are the best light cones for Bronya?

But the Battle Isn’t Over is a five-star light cone tailored to Bronya’s kit. It increases her energy regeneration rate whenever she uses her ultimate on a target ally, while also buffing their damage. As But the Battle Isn’t Over is a five-star light cone, it may be a little tough to get your paws on.

So, if you need something to fill the slot in the meantime, feel free to equip her with anything that increases her energy restoration rate or enhances her buffs. Just make sure that the light cone you equip her with also aligns with the path of the Harmony in order to enable its skill.

Light cone Effect How to obtain
But The Battle Isn’t Over (five-star) Increases Bronya’s energy regeneration rate by 10% and restores one skill point whenever she uses her ultimate on a target ally. This can trigger every two times she uses her ultimate. When Bronya uses her skill, the next ally in the order deals 30% more damage for a turn. Gacha
Past and Future (four-star) When Bronya uses her skill, then the next ally taking action (except Bronya) deals 16% increased damage for one turn Gacha, Light Cone manifest, Echo of War, or purchase with Strale
Memories of the Past (four-star) Increases Bronya’s break effect by 28%. When she attacks, she additionally regenerates four energy. This effect can only trigger once per turn. Gacha
Meshing Cogs (three-star) After Bronya attacks or gets hit, she additionally regenerates four energy. This effect can only trigger once per turn. Gacha

What are the best relics for Bronya?

Bronya’s best relic set is Messenger Traversing Hackerspace as it not only buffs her personal speed, but its four-piece bonus buffs the rest of her team’s speed when she uses her ultimate on them.

Even though Bronya can’t heal herself or her allies, Passerby of Wandering Cloud’s four-piece set works well in her teams as you’ll find yourself burning through skill points ridiculously fast. The combination of the set bonus and building the artifacts with speed stats makes it a great choice if you’re running out of skill points.

Despite being a wind wielder, according to KeqingMainsEagle of Twilight Line is anti-synergistic for Bronya. Her support builds rely on chaining your team’s skills, so the action advancement can result in clunky coordination.

Sprightly Vonwacq is a good starter planar ornament set for Bronya is its speed and energy regeneration buffs help her to get more buffs off for the team. However, once you reach World 7 of the simulated universe, switch to Broken Keel for increased effect resistance and a team-wide crit damage buff. Increased effect resistance means Bronya can avoid getting taken over by Honkai Star Rail’s Kafka and other debuffs, and who doesn’t want a crit boost from your support?
