Fu Xuan is a five-star character who deals quantum damage and treads the path of The Preservation. She’s a tank character, with a kit that primarily focuses on absorbing damage from her allies and stats that scale on her max HP. Therefore, while building her, you should generally prioritize boosting her survivability and further enhancing her tankiness.

Fu Xuan’s best light cone is her signature five-star, She Already Shut Her Eyes. Her best relic set is a combination of two pieces of Longevous Disciple and two pieces of Guard of Wuthering Snow, paired up with the planar ornaments set Fleet of the Ageless.

When picking out Fu Xuan’s relics, you should aim to boost that aforementioned tankiness through HP% or def% stats, along with a splash of speed – the latter is more important if you do go with the Fleet of the Ageless planar set, as you need her to hit the 120 speed threshold in order to permanently provide that team-wide attack buff.

How to use Fu Xuan

As we mentioned above, Fu Xuan is a quantum Preservation character who excels best in a tank role. She’s an excellent defensive support with the highest base HP in the game, and her talent offers an impressive level of teamwide damage reduction. On top of that, her skill boasts an extremely handy damage share mechanic, in which she absorbs 65% of the damage an ally would otherwise take.

She can also restore HP with her ultimate, provides both max HP and crit rate bonuses from her skill, and can even protect the whole team from crowd control debuffs. This all adds up to make her a fantastically versatile unit who can be a benefit to just about every team.

Generally, you can feel free to use her basic attack and skill as you see fit – her basic attack also scales off her HP, so if you build her with a strong focus on HP, she can dish out a respectable amount of damage. Her skill on the other hand offers that handy damage reduction and buff combo, which is particularly useful when you’re facing a boss.

In terms of her ultimate, you should aim to use it when Fu Xuan has lost HP through her skill, and to gain an additional stack for her talent. However, keep in mind that she requires a lot of investment in order to be the sole healer on the team, so you may still want to pair her up with another healer in order to ensure full survivability depending on the rest of your team.

What’s the best light cone for Fu Xuan?

Fu Xuan’s best light cone is her five-star signature She Already Shut Her Eyes. It’s tailored perfectly to her kit, offering a flat HP% and energy regen increase, as well as a teamwide damage buff when her HP drops. It also restores a portion of her lost HP for the team. This makes it a brilliant all-rounder light cone that really amplifies her utility as a defensive support.

If you’re looking for a more easily obtainable five-star option, Moment of Victory is a good option, offering a massive defense bonus that allows her to sustain more damage. It also increases her taunt, which can indirectly speed up her ultimate rotation.

As for four-star options, Landau’s Choice is the best to go with, once again focusing on increasing her taunt while also decreasing the damage she takes. Day One of My New Life is another strong four-star, helping with team survivability by decreasing the damage both Fu Xuan and her allies take.

Finally, Texture of Memories is a strong option, especially at superimpose level five, as it grants her a massive shield based on her HP and helps her meet the Broken Keel speed requirements. It’s also a free-to-play option as you can purchase it from Herta’s store – though it takes some time to save up enough to get it to S5, of course!

Light code Effect How to obtain
She Already Shut Her Eyes Increases Fu Xuan’s max HP by 24% and energy regen by 12%. When her HP decreases, she boosts the damage of all her allies by 9% for two turns. Additionally, at the beginning of each wave, Fu Xuan restores HP equal to 80% of HP she has already lost for the team Event warp
Moment of Victory Increases Fu Xuan’s defense by 24%, her effect hit rate by 24%, and her chance of being attacked by enemies. When an enemy attacks Fu Xuan, her defense increases by an additional 24% until the end of her turn All character and light cone warps, or purchased from the Starlight Exchange store
Landau’s Choice Fu Xuan is more likely to be attacked, but her damage taken reduces by 16% All character and light cone warps
Day One of My New Life Increases Fu Xuan’s defense by 16%. After entering battle, also increases all allies’ damage resistance by 8%. Effects of the same type don’t stack All character and light cone warps
Texture of Memories Increases Fu Xuan’s effect resistance by 8%. If an enemy attacks her and she has no shield, Fu Xuan gains a shield equal to 16% of her max HP for two turns. This effect can only trigger once every three turns. If she has a shield when attacked, the damage she receives decreases by 12% Herta’s Store

What are the best relics for Fu Xuan?

Currently, the best relic set for Fu Xuan is two pieces of Guard of Wuthering Snow and two pieces of Longevous Disciple, as it boosts her max HP while also reducing the damage she takes.

Alternatively, you can go for two pieces of Longevous Disciple with two pieces of Messenger Traversing Hackerspace if you need some help hitting the speed threshold to activate the teamwide Fleet of the Ageless buff. A full set of Longevous Disciple is also a decent choice, though doesn’t size up quite as well as the mixed piece sets in terms of utility.

Fleet of the Ageless is the best set of planar ornaments for Fu Xuan as it increases her ever-important max HP, while also offering a nice attack boost for her allies.

Guard of Wuthering Snow Two equipped: reduces damage taken by 8%

Fu Xuan team comps

As a strong tank, Fu Xuan is a very versatile, flexible and can fit into quite a few team comps, though there are a few characters that synergize better with her than others.

Here are some notable synergies for Fu Xuan:

  • Honkai Star Rail’s March 7th – a good secondary defensive character, March’s shield can provide Fu Xuan with some extra taunt allowing you to redirect enemy attacks away from other allies. She also has the ability to cleanse debuffs from her allies and freeze her enemies, offering extra utility. If you team her up with Fu Xuan, you should build March with extra effect hit rate and defense
  • Honkai Star Rail’s Silver Wolf – Fu Xuan and Silver Wolf make a really strong pair. Fu Xuan allows Silver Wolf to implant weaknesses more reliably, and provides supplementary buffs for the main DPS so you don’t have to worry about slotting another buffer on the team
  • Honkai Star Rail’s Fire Trailblazer – the consistent shields that Fire Trailblazer provides are generally quite weak, but Fu Xuan’s damage reduction and redirection can boost their durability substantially. Additionally, as Fire Trailblazer applies shields with almost every action, it makes it nearly impossible for enemies to deal damage to other allies besides Fu Xuan, and help further increase Fu Xuan’s survivability

However, there are also some characters that don’t synergize well with Fu Xuan.

One character that doesn’t synergize with Fu Xuan is Honkai Star Rail’s Arlan, whose self-damage doesn’t benefit from her kit at all. He also requires a decent shield and healer, so Fu Xuan would be taking up valuable spots on her team, and she only ends up slowing down his ramping damage.

The other character that doesn’t synergize well with Fu Xuan is, surprisingly, Honkai Star Rail’s Yanqing. While she can improve his survivability, she can’t provide a shield and has no other way of preventing Yanqing from taking damage, which means she can’t prevent him from losing his Soulsteel Sync.

Now, with all that said and done, here’s a few examples of strong Fu Xuan team comps.

What are Honkai Star Rail Fu Xuan’s abilities?

As a walker of the path of Preservation, Fu Xuan’s abilities are built to protect her fellow teammates, but she also has the ability to deal significant quantum damage of her own.

Active skills:

Skill Effect
Basic attack: Novaburst Fu Xuan deals quantum damage equal to 25% of her max HP to a single enemy
Skill: Known by Stars, Shown by Hearts Fu Xuan activates the Matrix of Prescience, via which other team members distribute 65% of the damage they receive (before it is mitigated by shields) to Fu Xuan for three turns. While affected by the Matrix of Prescience, all team members gain the knowledge effect, which increases their crit rate by 6% and their max HP by 3% of Fu Xuan’s max HP. The Matrix of Prescience dispells when Fu Xuan is knocked down.
Ultimate: Woes of Many Morphed to One Fu Xuan deals quantum damage equal to 60% of her max HP to all enemies and obtains one trigger count for her talent’s HP restore effect

Passive skill:

Skill Effect
Talent: Bleak Breeds Bliss While Fu Xuan is still active in battle, she applies Misfortune Avoidance to the entire team. This means that allies take 10% less damage. When Fu Xuan’s current HP falls to 50% of her max HP or less, this triggers HP restore, restoring her HP by 80% of the amount of HP she is currently missing. This effect doesn’t trigger if she receives a killing blow. This effect possesses one trigger count by default and can have a maximum of two trigger counts


Technique Effect
Of Fortune Comes Fate Fu Xuan grants a barrier for her whole team lasting for 20 seconds. This barrier can block all enemy attacks, and the team won’t enter battle when attacked. Fu Xuan automatically activates the Matrix of Prescience when entering battle while the barrier is active, which lasts for two turns


Trace Effect
Taiyi, the Macrocosmic When Matrix of Prescience is active, Fu Xuan regenerates 20 extra energy when she uses her skill
Dunjia, the Metamystic When Fu Xuan uses her ultimate, she heals all other allies by an amount equal to 5% of her max HP plus 133
Liuren, the Sexagenary If a target enemy applies crowd control debuffs to allies while the Matrix of Prescience is active, all allies will resist all crowd control debuffs applied by the enemy target during the current action. This effect can only trigger once. When Matrix of Prescience is activated again, the number of times this effect can trigger will reset

What are Honkai Star Rail’s Fu Xuan’s eidolons?

If you’re lucky enough to pull dusplicates of Fu Xuan, you’ll unlock extra perks called eidolons which are similar to constellations in Genshin Impact. Here are all of Lady Fu’s:

Eidolon Effect
E1: Dominus Pacis The knowledge effect increases crit damage by 30%
E2: Optimus Felix If any team member is struck by a killing blow while Matrix of Prescience is actibe, then all allies who were struck by a killing blow during this action will not be knocked down, and 70% of their max HP is immediately restored. This can trigger once per battle
E3: Apex Nexus Fu Xuan’s skill level increases by two, up to a maximum level of 15, and her talent level increases by two, up to a maximum level of 15
E4: Fortuna Stellaris When enemies attack other allies under Matrix of Prescience, Fu Xuan regenerates five energy
E5: Arbiter Primus Fu Xuan’s ultimate level increases by two, up to a maximum level of 15, and her basic attack level increases by one, up to a maximum level of ten
E6: Omnia Vita Once Fu Xuan activates Matrix of Prescience, it will keep a tally of the total HP lost by all team members in the current battle. Fu Xuan’s ultimate damage increases by 200% of this total. The tally is also capped at 120% of Fu Xuan’s max HP and the tally value resets and re-accumulates after she uses her ultimate
