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? Yeah, we’ve not worked out that one yet, either.
While we may have to wait until the Honkai Star Rail release date to roll around before we can learn more about that last bit, we’ve spent some time with Honkai Star Rail’s Luocha during the beta. So, in this guide, we’ll give you a little insight into who exactly Luocha is, what his attacks are, and the best relics, light cones, and more to equip him with.
Before you hit the rails, be sure to check out our Honkai Star Rail tier list and Honkai Star Rail characters guide. We also have more build guides just like this one, including Honkai Star Rail’s Kafka, Honkai Star Rail’s March 7th, and Honkai Star Rail’s Herta.
Who is Honkai Star Rail’s Luocha?
Honkai Star Rail’s Luocha is a young, foreign trader who came from beyond the seas. Appearing at Xianzhou carrying a huge coffin, little is known about him other than his admirable medical skills, and his penchant for rescuing people in the face of danger.
Luocha is a five-star support unit, who walks the path of The Abundance, dealing imaginary damage and healing his allies in battle. The name of his English voice actor is currently unknown, but his Japanese voice actor is Ishida Akira, who is best known for his roles as Katsura Kotarou in Gin Tama and Gaara in Naruto.
What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Luocha build?
While his healing may not be as reliable as Honkai Star Rail’s Natasha due to her ultimate offering a perfect emergency button, Honkai Star Rail’s Luocha is a powerful support. He offers great heals that scale off his attack, while also having the potential to deal some impactful imaginary and true damage, and his ability to strip enemies of buffs with his ultimate can be extremely handy.
Luocha is a great addition to any team looking for a healer and all-around support unit, especially one in need of an imaginary damage dealer to take down enemies with that weakness. We found he works particularly well on a team with Honkai Star Rail’s Blade, as Luocha’s passive heals help make up for the HP Blade sacrifices during his skill. However, we’re still experimenting to ensure that Luocha’s healing doesn’t offset Blade’s passive stacks. We’ll update this guide as soon as we know more – likely when the game reaches its full release!
Which light cone should I use for Honkai Star Rail’s Luocha?
The five-star light cone, Echoes of the Coffin, was designed specifically for Luocha, boosting his attack to increase his healing, and offering buffs for his team. However, as it’s a five-star gacha pull, it may be tricky to get your paws on. If that’s the case, just be sure to pick one that aligns with his path, ‘The Abundance’, in order to activate its skill – and preferably choose one with a skill that focuses on increasing Luocha’s attack, too.
|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||Gacha|
Which relics should I use for Honkai Star Rail’s Luocha?
As we’ve only had access to the closed beta, we’ve not been able to thoroughly test out the different relic sets for Luocha, but due to his primary role and utility being based around healing, we recommend going with the Passerby of Wandering Cloud set.
Alternatively, as Luocha’s healing scales of attack instead of HP, you could also mix and match sets to stack attack% bonuses. We’re currently rocking four pieces of the Passerby of Wandering Cloud set, and two pieces of Musketeer of Wild Wheat in order to get the handy outgoing healing boost skill, as well as that extra 15% attack damage on top. For sub-stats, we recommend you aim to boost Luocha’s attack first and foremost, then outgoing healing, and/or imaginary damage boost.
|Relic||Effect||How to obtain|
|Passerby of Wandering Cloud||Two equipped: increases max HP by 15%
Four equipped: increases Luocha’s outgoing healing by 10%. Restores one skill point for allies immediately after entering combat
Two equipped: increases max HP by 15%
|Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Gelind Wind in Jarilo-VI, Great Mine|
|Four pieces Passerby of Wandering Cloud and two pieces of Musketeer of Wild Wheat||Two POWC equipped: increases max HP by 15%
Four POWC equipped: increases Luocha’s outgoing healing by 10%. Restores one skill point for allies immediately after entering combat
Two MOWW equipped: increases attack by 15%
|MOWW comes from the Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Raging Battle in Jarvilo-VI, Silvermane Guard’s Restricted Zone. For POWC, see above|
What are Honkai Star Rail’s Lyocha’s attacks?
|Basic attack: Thorns of the Abyss (single attack)||Deal 50% of Luocha’s attack as imaginary damage to a target enemy|
|Skill: Prayer of Abyss Flower (restore)||Restores the target ally’s HP by 48% of Luocha’s attack plus 160. Luocha gains one stack of Abyss Flower. When the HP of the target ally is 50% or lower, Luocha immediately uses his skill one time on them (without consuming skill points). This effect can trigger again when the conditions are met after Luocha takes action two more times|
|Ultimate: Death Wish (AoE Attack)||Deal 80% of Luocha’s attack as imaginary damage to all enemies, and dispel one enemy buff. For each enemy buff dispelled, Luocha gains one stack of Abyss Flower|
|Talent: Cycle of Life||When Luocha gains three stacks of Abyss Flower, he consumes all stacks to deploy a field against the enemy. When an ally attacks an enemy unit within the field, the ally immediately restores HP equal to 108% of Luocha’s attack plus 36. The field effect lasts two turns|
|Mercy of a Fool (restore)||After using his technique, Luocha immediately heals the ally with the lowest HP by 50% of his own max HP|
What are Luocha’s eidolons?
Eidolons in Honkai Star Rail are similar to Genshin Impact’s constellations, meaning you need to pull more than one copy of a character to unlock them. Here are Luocha’s.
|Level one – Pure Bestowal||When using his skill, if the target ally’s HP is lower than 50%, Luocha’s outgoing healing increases by 30%. If the target ally’s HP is 50% or higher, Luocha creates a shield for them that can withstand damage equal to 15% of their max HP for one turn|
|Level two – Baptism of the Living||After using his skill, if the target ally’s HP is fully restored, Luocha regenerates an additional ten energy|
|Level three – A Fool’s Attempt||Increases the level of Luocha’s ultimate by three, up to a maximum of level 15, and the level of his basic attack by one, up to a maximum of level ten|
|Level four – Judgement From Crown of Thorns||When Luocha’s ‘Cycle of Life’ field is active, it weakens enemies. Weakened enemies deal 30% reduced damage|
|Level five – Mark of Sacrifice||Increases the level of Luocha’s skill by three, up to a maximum of level 15, and his basic attack by one, up to a maximum of ten|
|Level six – Dust to Dust||When using his ultimate, Luocha deals 100% of his attack as additional imaginary damage to enemy targets with buffs|
That’s all we’ve got on Honkai Star Rail’s Luocha at the moment. We’ll be sure to add more info after the game’s full release. In the meantime, head over to our list of the best games like Genshin Impact for more fun adventures.
