As one of the first characters you meet in Honkai Star Rail, Silver Wolf certainly knows how to make an impression. The universe is just another game to this 1337, tsundere hacker, and she can’t wait to zap through the enemies, grab that EXP, and hop on up to see what the next level has to offer.
No defence system is too complicated for Honkai Star Rail’s Silver Wolf to crack, and if you’re hoping to hack her into your team, you’re in the right place. In this guide we intend to shed some light on who exactly Silver Wolf is, along with her best build, attacks, relics, and more. Of course, all of this info is based on the current beta – we’ll have to wait until the full Honkai Star Rail release date before we can level this guide up any further.

We’ve also got plenty more build guides just like this for other Honkai-tonks, including Honkai Star Rail’s Blade and Honkai Star Rail’s Kafka.

What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Silver Wolf build?
Silver Wolf is a high impact damage dealer who specialises 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.
Which light cone should I use for Honkai Star Rail’s Silver Wolf?
Incessant Rain is a five-star light cone tailor-made for Silver Wolf, and fits perfectly with her DoT/debuff-heavy kit. However, as it’s a five-star gacha pull, it may be a little tough to get your hands on. 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||Each time Silver Wolf starts a turn, there’s a 100% base chance to implant a random enemy with Aether code. When that enemy is inflicted with break, Aether code self-destructs, dealing additional damage equal to 80% of Silver Wolf’s attack. When she attacks an enemy with more than three debuffs, she deals additional damage equal to 40% of her attack||Gacha|
Which relics should I use for Honkai Star Rail’s Silver Wolf?
In the current beta, 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 boost, and then add in some speed or energy restoration where possible.
|Relic||Effect||How to obtain|
|Genius of Brilliant Stars||Two equipped: increases quantum damage by 12%
Four equipped: increases Silver Wolf’s attack by 10% after an action. This effect can stack up to four times
Five equipped: increases quantum damage by 12%
|Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Imploding Force in Jarilo-VI’s Corridor of Fading Echoes|
What are Honkai Star Rail’s Silver Wolf’s attacks?
|Basic attack: System Warning (single attack)||Deal 50% of Silver Wolf’s attack as quantum damage to a target enemy, with a 65% base chance of inflicting a random bug for three turns|
|Skill: Allow Changes? (single attack)||Deal 70% of Silver Wolf’s attack as quantum damage to a target enemy, with a 75% base chance to impose the weakness of a random ally’s type on the target for three turns and reduce the target’s damage resistance to that weakness type by 20%|
|Ultimate: User Banner (single attack)||Deal 180% of Silver Wolf’s attack as quantum damage to a target enemy. There’s a 100% base chance to cause entanglement. For each debuff inflicted on the enemy, deal an additional 18% of Silver Wolf’s attack as quantum damage to the enemy, up to five times. When entangled, the enemy’s action is delayed by 40%, and at the the start of the next turn, the enemy receives quantum DoT equal to 48% of Silver Wolf’s attack|
|Talent: Awaiting System Response…||Silver Wolf can inflict three types of bugs – reduce attack by 10%, reduce defence by 10%, and reduce speed by 10%. For every debuff that the enemy attacked by Silver Wolf has, Silver Wolf’s damage against the enemy increases by 15%. This effect stacks up to five times|
|Technique: Force Quit Program||Immediately attack the enemy. After entering battle, ignore weakness types and deplete the toughness of all enemies. If the target’s weakness is broken, they become entangled|
What are Silver Wolf’s eidolons?
Honkai Star Rail’s eidolons are similar to Genshin Impact’s constellations, where you unlock them by pulling multiple copies of the same character. Here are all of Silver Wolf’s eidolons.
|Level one – Social Engineering||Extends bug’s duration for one turn. Whenever you break an enemy’s weakness, Silver Wolf has a 65% base chance of inflicting a random bug on the target|
|Level two – Zombie Network||When an enemy enters battle, reduces their effect resistance by 30% for two turns|
|Level three – Payload||Increases Silver Wolf’s ultimate level by three, up to a maximum of 15, and the level of her basic attack by one, up to a maximum of ten|
|Level four – Bounce Attack||When using her ultimate, for every debuff that the enemy target has, Silver Wolf regenerates eight energy, up to five times|
|Level five – Brute Force Attack||Increases Silver Wolf’s skill level by three, up to a maximum of level 15, and the level of her basic attack by one, up to a maximum of ten|
|Level six – Access Granted||The duration of the weaknesses Silver Wolf implants in enemies through her skill has no turn limit|
