Who is Honkai Star Rail’s Tingyun?

Making her first appearance on the official website in January 2023, Honkai Star Rail’s Tingyun is a gorgeous Foxian girl who acts as the head representative of the Whistling Flames merchant guild. She associates with the Xianxhou Luofu – a warship connected to the Xianzhou Alliance and founded by the aeon Lan. Xianzhou Loufu is also the second world that you visit in-game, so we’ll likely find out more about Tingyun as we explore it.

What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Tingyun build?

We don’t know much about Tingyun’s build or playstyle at the moment, but we do know that she’s a four-star character that wields the power of lightning. Beyond that, she appears to be a support unit capable of buffing her allies. She aligns with ‘The Harmony’ path, which suggests her role relies on her providing buffs to and cooperating with allies in order to boost the party’s overall battle power.

We’ll be sure to update this guide with more details as soon as we get our hands on the next beta.

Which light cone should I use for Honkai Star Rail’s Tingyun?

As with her build and role, we’re not sure of the best Honkai Star Rail Tingyun light cones at the moment. However, most characters appear to have their own light cones tailored specifically to their kits, so we’ll likely see a Tingyun signature light cone during the beta.

Beyond that, we simply recommend that you pick a light cone that aligns with her path, The Harmony, to ensure you activate all of its benefits. From what we know so far, Honkai Star Rail Bronya’s set below may be a good choice for her, but we’ll be sure to update this section with new recommendations as soon as we’ve had the chance to test them out ourselves.

Light cone Effect How to obtain
The Battle Isn’t Over Increases Tingyun’s energy restoration rate by 16% and restores one skill point whenever she uses her ultimate on a target ally. The target ally also restores ten energy. This effect can only trigger once per turn Gacha

Until we find out more about Tingyun’s kit, we can’t give you a definitive answer about the best relics to use for her. However, if her kit focuses on healing, then Passerby of Wandering Cloud is a safe bet, whereas if her supporting buffs are boosted by her damage, then Band of Sizzling Thunder could suit her.

Unfortunately, we don’t know Honkai Star Rail Tingyun’s attacks or skills yet. The only glimpse we’ve gotten so far is her buff animation showcased on the official Honkai Star Rail website. However, as soon as we find out more about her kit, we’ll be sure to add details here.

What are Honkai Star Rail Tingyun’s eidolons?

Like constellations in Genshin Impact, eidolons are special buffs you can unlock after pulling more than one copy of a character. Unfortunately, we don’t know what Tingyun’s eidolons are yet, but we should find out more as soon as we get access to the beta.
