What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Silver Wolf build?

Silver Wolf is a high-impact damage dealer who specializes in taking down single targets. She lacks any real AoE potential, but with her amazing debuff ‘bugs’, she’s an asset to any team due to her ability to apply DoT and impose weaknesses on her targets.

She works well with other characters capable of applying debuffs to enemies due to her ultimate, but she can fit into any team in need of some increased resistance to shred. We recommend building her with plenty of attack and quantum damage boost.

What are the best light cones for Honkai Star Rail’s Silver Wolf?

Version 1.1 introduced Silver Wolf’s signature five-star light cone, Incessant Rain, which is catered specifically to her DoT/debuff-heavy kit. Sadly it relies on gacha luck, but if you’re able to get it, it’s the best option by far.

We Will Meet Again is a four-star light cone that’s also tailor-made for Silver Wolf. As a four-star it’s a little easier to roll into, so it might be a better starting option while you save up your Stellar Jade. If you don’t have this light cone, just be sure to equip Silver Wolf with one that aligns with her path, the Nihility, in order to activate its skill.

Light cone Effect How to obtain
Incessant Rain (five-star) Increases Silver Wolf’s effect hit rate by 24%. When she deals damage to an enemy that currently has three or more debuffs, her crit rate increases by 12%. After Silver Wolf uses her basic attack, skill, or ultimate, there is a 100% base chance to implant Aether Code on a random hit target that does not yet have it. Targets with Aether Code receive 12% increased damage for one turn Light cone event warp
We Will Meet Again (four-star) After Silver Wolf uses her basic attack or skill, she deals 40% of her attack as additional damage to a random enemy that is attacked by abilities Gacha
Good Night and Sleep Well (four-star) For every debuff the target enemy has, Silver Wolf deals 12% increased damage, stacking up to three times. This effect also applies to DoT Gacha
Loop (three-star) Silver Wolf deals 24% more damage to slowed enemies Gacha, treasure chests, quest rewards

What are the best relics for Honkai Star Rail’s Silver Wolf?

The best relic set to use for Silver Wolf is undoubtedly Genius of Brilliant Stars, due to its increase to both her quantum damage and attack. For sub-stats, we recommend building attack, quantum damage, and then adding in some speed or energy restoration where possible.

As for her Planar Ornaments, we recommend either Space Sealing Station to further boost her attack, or Pan-Galactic Commercial Enterprise to boost the hit rate of her debuffs.

Relic set Effect How to obtain
Genius of Brilliant Stars Two pieces equipped: increases quantum damage by 10%
Four pieces equipped: when Silver Wolf attacks an enemy, the damage dealt ignores 10% of their defense. If the enemy has quantum weakness, ignores an additional 10%
Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Providence in Jarilo-V’s Everwinter Hill
Musketeer of Wild Wheat Two pieces equipped: increases attack by 12%

What are Honkai Star Rail Silver Wolf’s abilities?

Silver Wolf’s abilities are perfect for targetting down strong, single enemies and inflicting them with various debuffs that your team can take advantage of. Get debuffs on the enemy using her attack and skill alongside other debuff characters, then pop her ultimate for massive quantum damage.

Active skills:

Skill Effect
Basic attack: System Warning (single attack) Deals 50% of Silver Wolf’s attack as quantum damage to a target enemy
Skill: Allow Changes? (impair)

There is a 75% base chance to add a weakness of an on-field ally’s type to the target enemy and reduce the enemy’s damage resistance to that element by 20% for two turns. If the enemy already has that weakness, the effect of the reduction will not happen. Silver Wolf can only implant one weakness per enemy.

When Silver Wolf implants another weakness on the target, this replaces the previous weakness. In addition, there is a 100% base chance to additionally reduce the all-type resistance of the enemy by 7.5% for two turns.

Deals 98% of Silver Wolf’s attack as quantum damage to a target enemy

Skill Effect
Talent: Awaiting System Response… Silver Wolf can create three types of bugs: Reduce attack by 5%, reduce defense by 4%, and reduce speed 3%. Every time Silver Wolf attacks, she has a 60% base chance to implant a random bug that lasts for three turns in the enemy target


Technique Effect
Force Quit Program Immediately attacks the enemy, dealing 80% of Silver Wolf’s attack as quantum damage to all targets. After entering battle, reduces toughness from all enemies, ignoring their weakness. Enemies with their weakness broken in this way trigger the quantum weakness break effect
