When we first saw Honkai Star Rail’s Luocha, we said the same thing as many of you – ‘hold on, is that playable Otto?’ But, as much as Luocha may bear a striking resemblance to Honkai Impact’s Otto, he’s certainly a man of his own, setting out to heal everyone’s ailments… With a coffin by his side? But what we have worked out is this Honkai Star Rail Luocha build, featuring his best light cones, relics, and more.

Before you hit the rails, be sure to check out our Honkai Star Rail tier list, Honkai Star Rail codes, and Honkai Star Rail banner guide. We also have more build guides just like this one, including Honkai Star Rail’s Black Swan, Honkai Star Rail’s Gallagher, and Honkai Star Rail’s Huohuo.

Let’s dive into everything you need to know about Honkai Star Rail’s Luocha.

What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Luocha build?

Best light cone Echoes of the Coffin
Light cone substitutes Night of Fright (five-star) or Perfect Timing (four-star)
Best relic set Passerby of Wandering Cloud/Messenger Traversing Hackerspace
Best planar ornament set Fleet of the Ageless or Broken Keel
Main stats
  • Body: Outgoing healing bonus
  • Feet: Speed or attack%
  • Planar sphere: Attack%
  • Link rope: Energy regeneration rate or attack%
Sub-stats
  • Attack
  • Speed
  • Effect resistance

Luocha’s best light cone is Echoes of the Coffin which is made specifically for him. Pair this with either a four-piece set of Passerby of Wandering Cloud or two Passerby and two Messenger Traversing Hackerspace for his standard relics and a two-piece set of Broken Keel for his planar ornaments. This healer can hit hard when he wants to.

While his healing may not be as reliable as Honkai Star Rail’s Natasha due to her ultimate offering the perfect emergency button, Luocha is a powerful support. He offers great heals that scale off his attack, while also having the potential to deal some impactful imaginary damage, and his ability to strip enemies of buffs with his ultimate can be extremely handy.

How do I use Luocha?

Luocha’s utility revolves around his ability to both hit hard and heal his teammates. Use his basic attack to target enemies with imaginary weakness and assist your allies with his Prayer of Abyss Flower skill. Build up Luocha’s Abyss Flower stacks with his skill and ultimate to protect your team and provide passive healing along the way.

What are Luocha’s best light cones?

Echoes of the Coffin is Luocha’s signature five-star light cone, boosting his attack to increase his healing, and offering buffs for his team. However, as it’s a five-star limited gacha pull, it may be tricky to get your paws on. Another light cone in a similar position, Night of Fright, continues to be a top-tier option for any healer, despite Luocha’s unique kit. If you’ve got one spare, consider making use of its energy regeneration and outgoing healing boosts.

When it comes to four-star options, Perfect Timing is a great choice as it boosts both Luocha’s effect resistance and outgoing healing. Shared Feeling is also a strong option, especially if you have an energy-hungry team that favors using their ultimates more frequently.

Unfortunately, Post-Op Conversation isn’t a great option for him, as it boosts outgoing healing when the wearer uses their ultimate – and, of course, Luocha’s ultimate doesn’t heal.

Light cone Effect How to obtain
Echoes of the Coffin Increases Luocha’s attack. After he uses his ultimate, provides all allies with a speed boost for one turn. Additionally, for each different target Luocha attacks, he recovers five energy. Each attack can recover energy a maximum of three times Limited gacha
Night of Fright Increases Luocha’s energy regeneration rate by 12%. When any ally uses their ultimate, Luocha restores HP for the ally currently with the lowest HP percentage by an amount equal to 10% of the healed ally’s max HP. When Luocha provides healing for an ally, increases the healed ally’s attack by 2.4%. This effect can stack up to five times and lasts for two turns Limited gacha
Perfect Timing Increases Luocha’s effect res by 16% and increases his outgoing healing by 33% of his effect res. Outgoing healing can increase by a max of 15% in this way Gacha
Shared Feeling Increases Luocha’s outgoing healing by 10%. Using his skill regenerates two energy for all allies Gacha

What are the best relics for Luocha?

Due to Luocha’s primary role and utility being based on healing, we recommend going with the Passerby of Wandering Cloud four-piece set. For the neck and article relics, as Luocha’s healing scales of attack instead of HP, you could also mix and match sets to stack attack% bonuses. Seeing as Passerby’s four-piece bonus isn’t as relevant to Luocha’s success, we also recommend pairing the set with Messenger Traversing Hackerspace to boost his speed.

Alternatively, if you want to increase his personal damage, you can go with a full set of Wastelander of Banditry Desert – or, for a balanced healing and damage build, you can combine two pieces of Wasteander of Banditry Desert and two pieces of Passerby of Wandering Clouds, boosting both his outgoing healing and imaginary damage.

We’re currently rocking four pieces of the Passerby of Wandering Cloud set, and two pieces Broken Keel, as Luocha’s healer and debuffer role means that keeping him alive and active is essential for success, so the set’s effect resistance comes in handy. Alternatively, Fleet of the Ageless is much easier to come by and grants Luocha a healthy boost to his max HP while buffing the team’s attack.

Relic set Effect How to obtain
Passerby of Wandering Cloud  Two equipped: increases outgoing healing by 10%
Four equipped: immediately recover one skill point at the beginning of battle
Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Drifting in Jarilo-VI’s Corridor of Fading Echoes

What’s the best team comp for Luocha?

As a healer, Luocha fits well in a range of Honkai Star Rail team comps, but thanks to his bonus ability Sanctified, he works particularly well with follow-up attackers. Characters like Honkai Star Rail’s Clara and Honkai Star Rail’s March 7th deal follow-up damage to certain enemies and if this happens inside Luocha’s Cycle of Life field, it grants the team additional passive healing.

Here’s an example of a strong Luocha team comp:
