What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Hanya build?

Best relic set Messenger Traversing Hackerspace
Main stats
  • Body – Attack
  • Feet – Speed
  • Link rope – Attack
  • Planar sphere – Physical attack bonus
Sub stats Energy regeneration rate > speed > attack

Hanya is a four-star physical character who follows the Harmony path, meaning she excels at supporting and providing buffs for her allies. She can still dish out some pretty decent damage, but her kit revolves around aiding teammates by regenerating skill points and increasing allies’ speed.

The best light cone for Hanya is the five-star But the Battle Isn’t Over, and you’re going to want sets of Messenger Traversing Hackerspace and Fleet of the Ageless for her relics. Aim to get some attack and speed substats.

Using Hanya in a team with other DPS characters like Qingque and Imbibitor Lunae means they can use their skill-consuming attacks without worry, dealing plenty of damage.

How do I use Honkai Star Rail’s Hanya?

As we mentioned above, Hanya is best suited to a support role. She’s very versatile, and a valuable ally to pretty much every DPS due to her brilliant buffing capabilities and her ability to regenerate skill points.

Hanya’s ultimate provides a single ally with a powerful boost to their attack and speed, but the most important part of her kit is her skill. It deals single-target damage to an enemy and applies the burdened debuff. Allies who hit a burdened enemy deal increased damage for two turns, and every two actions against the debuffed enemy also restores one skill point.

Therefore, we highly recommend that you put Hanya in a line-up that allows her to make a move before your main DPS. You then want to use Hanya’s skill to apply burden to enemies, allowing the DPS to deal increased damage and regenerate skill points for the team.

As for her ultimate, we recommend using it on your main DPS, preferably before their turn or their ultimate so they can make the most of both the attack and speed buff.

What are the best light cones for Hanya?

Any light cone pertaining to skill point regeneration is a great option for Hanya. If you happen to have Bronya’s signature – But the Battle Isn’t Over – lying around, you can use that.
