What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Natasha build?

Best light cone Night of Fright
Light cone substitute Time Waits for No One
Best relic set Messenger Traversing Hackerspace
Best planar ornament set Fleet of the Ageless
Main stats
  • Body: outgoing healing boost
  • Feet: speed
  • Planar sphere: HP%
  • Link rope: energy regeneration rate
Sub-stats
  • HP%
  • HP
  • Speed
  • Effect resistance

Natasha’s best light cone is Night of Fright, as this buffs her energy regeneration rate, as well as triggering more passive healing and attack buffs for your team. Your relics should focus on speed, max HP, and energy regeneration rate, so a four-piece set of Messenger Traversing Hackerspace works great.

You can also consider pairing Messenger Traversing Hackerspace with Passerby of Wandering Cloud or Longevous Disciple to further buff her healing.

How should I use Natasha?

You should use Natasha for her targeted healing ability and her emergency button ultimate to keep your team alive, remove debuffs, and buff their speed. Her basic attack is useful in a pinch, but is generally not recommended.

What are the best light cones for Natasha?

Since its release, Night of Fright is considered the best-in-slot light cone for most healers in Honkai Star Rail. It’s got solid base stats, offers an energy regen buff for Natasha herself, and benefits her healing capabilities. The only downside is its availability as a limited five-star light cone.

Honkai Star Rail Bailu‘s light cone Time Waits for No One is another great choice. It buffs her outgoing healing and HP% at the same time, bulking her up and improving her use as a support. However, it is a pain to get your hands on, and you might prefer to reserve it for Bailu herself.

The four-star light cone Post-Op Conversation features Natasha on its artwork, and despite four-star characters not getting signature light cones, this one suits her kit really well. We highly recommend using it if you have it as it’s a great free-to-play option.

Light cone Effect How to obtain
Night of Fright Increases Natasha’s energy regeneration rate by 12%. When any ally uses their ultimate, Natasha 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 Natasha 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 Event light cone warp
Time Waits for No One Increases Natasha’s max HP by 18% and outgoing healing by 12%. When Natasha heals allies, record the amount of outgoing healing. When any ally launches an attack, a random attacked enemy takes additional damage equal to 36% of the recorded outgoing healing value. This additional damage is of the same type as Natasha’s (physical), is not affected by other buffs, and can only occur once per turn Gacha
Post-Op Conversation Increases Natasha’s energy regeneration rate by 8% and increases her outgoing healing when she uses her ultimate by 12% Gacha

What are the best relics for Natasha?

We recommend using Natasha’s relics to buff her team’s speed, so a four-piece set of Messenger Traversing Hackerspace is perfect. If you’re struggling with max HP or outgoing healing, consider pairing this with Passerby of Wandering Cloud or Longevous Disciple for a personal speed boost as well as a healing buff.

As for her planar ornaments, Fleet of the Ageless is a perfect choice as it buffs both her max HP and her allies’ attack. It’s the perfect support set!

Relic set Effect How to obtain
Messenger Traversing Hackerspace Two pieces equipped: increases speed by 6%
Four pieces equipped: when Natasha uses her ultimate on an ally, speed for all allies increases by 12% for one turn. This effect cannot stack

What’s the best team comp for Natasha?

As a healer, Natasha slots well into a whole range of team comps as you almost always need an HP top-up mid-battle. Her targeted healing can be particularly useful with DPS characters like Honkai Star Rail’s Blade and Honkai Star Rail’s Arlan who use their own HP to deal damage.

In general, depending on the weaknesses you’re looking to cover, Natasha pairs well with any main DPS plus Bronya and Tingyun for additional attack buffs.

Here are two examples of strong Natasha team comps:
