Right, time to talk you through everything about Honkai Star Rail’s Natasha.
What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Natasha build?
|Best light cone||Time Waits for No One|
|Light cone substitute||Post-Op Conversation|
|Best relic set||Messenger Traversing Hackerspace|
|Best planar ornament set||Fleet of the Ageless|
Natasha’s best light cone is Time Waits for No One, as this buffs both her outgoing healing and her max HP, which is what her healing scales with. Your relics should focus on speed, max HP, and energy regeneration rate, so a four-piece set of Messenger Traversing Hackerspace works great.
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.
Honkai Star Rail Bailu‘s light cone Time Waits for No One is Natasha’s best in slot 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 is made specifically for Natasha, so we highly recommend using it if you have it as it’s a great free-to-play option.
|Light cone||Effect||How to obtain|
|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|
|Shared Feeling||Increases Natasha’s outgoing healing by 10%. When she uses her skill, she regenerates two energy for all allies||Gacha|
|Cornucopia||When Natasha uses her skill or ultimate, her outgoing healing increases by 12%||Gacha|
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
|Obtain from Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Elixir Seekers in The Xianzhou Luofu’s Alchemy Commission|
|Passerby of Wandering Cloud||Two pieces equipped: increases outgoing healing by 10%
Four pieces equipped: not recommended
|Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Drifting in Jarilo-VI’s Corridor of Fading Echoes|
|Longevous Disciple||Two pieces equipped: increases max HP by 12%
Four pieces equipped: not recommended
|Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Elixir Seekers in The Xianzhou Luofu’s Alchemy Commission|
|Relic set||Effects||How to obtain|
|Fleet of the Ageless||Two pieces equipped: increases Natasha’s max HP by 12%. When her speed reaches 120 or higher, all allies’ attack increases by 8%||Immersion Reward devices in World 3 of the Simulated Universe|
Relic stat recommendations
- Body: outgoing healing boost
- Feet: speed
- Planar sphere: HP%
- Link rope: Energy regeneration rate
- Effect resistance
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:
|Basic attack: Behind the Kindness (single attack)||Deal 50% of Natasha’s attack as physical damage to a target enemy|
|Skill: Love, Heal, and Choose (restore)||Heal a target ally for 7% of Natasha’s max HP plus 70. Also heals the ally for another 4.8% of Natasha’s max HP plus 48 at the start of the next two turns|
|Ultimate: Gift of Rebirth (restore)||Heal all allies for 9.2% of Natasha’s max HP plus 92|
|Innervation||Increases Natasha’s outgoing healing to allies with HP at 30% or lower by 25%|
|Hypnosis Research||Immediately attacks the enemy. After entering battle, Natasha deals physical damage equal to 80% of her attack to a random enemy, with a 100% base chance to weaken all enemies. Enemies that are weakened deal 30% less damage to allies for one turn|
|Soothe||Natasha’s skill removes a debuff from an ally|
|Healer||Increases Natasha’s outgoing healing by 10%|
|Recuperation||Increases the duration of Natasha’s skill’s continuous healing effect for one turn|
Similar to Genshin Impact constellations, when you obtain more than one copy of a character you gain a special material that allows you to unlock one of that character’s eidolons, each of which offers a unique buff. Here are Honkai Star Rail Natasha’s eidolons.
|One – Pharmacology Expertise||If Natasha’s current HP is at 30% of her max HP or lower after she is attacked, she heals herself once to restore HP equal to 15% of her max HP plus 400. This effect can only trigger once per battle|
|Two – Clinical Research||When you use Natasha’s ultimate, it grants continuous healing to allies with 30% or lower HP for one turn. At the start of their turn, their HP is restored by 6% of Natasha’s max HP plus 160|
|Three – The Right Cure||Increases the level of Natasha’s skill by two to a maximum of level 15, and the level of her basic attack by one to a maximum of level ten|
|Four – Miracle Cure||Natasha additionally regenerates five energy after she is attacked|
|Five – Preventative Treatment||Increases the level of Natasha’s ultimate by two to a maximum of 15, and the level of her talent by two to a maximum level of ten|
|Six – Doctor’s Grace||Natasha’s basic attack deals additional physical damage equal to 40% of her max HP|
