Honkai Star Rail’s Tingyun is a stunning four-star fox girl set to prance into our hearts. With an elegant design, breathtaking dance animations, and a mischievous smile, we can’t wait to meet this adorable kitsune-kin. But who exactly is this lightning-wielding livewire, and what can we expect from her gameplay? Here’s what we know.
Want to get ahead of the game? Check out our Honkai Star Rail tier list, Honkai Star Rail characters, and Honkai Star Rail codes guides. We’ve also got a heap of other builds, including our Honkai Star Rail Jing Yuan, Honkai Star Rail Sushang, and Honkai Star Rail March 7th guides.
Here’s everything in our best Honkai Star Rail Tingyun build:
Tingyun is a four-star lightning character that treads the path of Harmony, meaning she is best suited to a support role. She provides potent buffs through her skillset, boosting your team’s overall damage output and energy regeneration.
Tingyun’s skill sees her buff the attack of both herself and one additional ally, and her ultimate both regenerates energy for the target ally and increases their attack even further.
Tingyun has her own light cone called Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds, which compliments her kit perfectly. As such, we recommend you use that with her if you manage to pull it.
If you’re looking for an alternate, make sure it aligns with the path of The Harmony. The Battle Isn’t Over and Chorus are good options.
|Light cone||Effect||How to obtain|
|Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds||Randomly applies one of the following effects at the start of the battle and whenever Tingyun takes action:
The effect cannot be identical to the last effect applied and replaces the previous effect. The applied effect expires when Tingyun falls in battle. Effects of the same type cannot stack
|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 or the Starlight Exchange store|
|Chorus||After entering battle, increases all allies’ attack. Effects of the same type can’t stack||Gacha|
We’re still working out the best relics for Tingyun. Currently, we believe Band of Sizzling Thunder is the best set for Tingyun’s personal damage, whereas Thief of Shooting Meteor is a great option to help her break enemy weaknesses and use her ult more often.
While not perfect for Tingyun’s kit, Space Sealing Station is the best available planar ornament set. It boosts her attack, buffing the effect she applies to allies.
|Relic set||Effect||Obtained from|
|Band of Sizzling Thunder||Two pieces equipped: increases lightning damage by 10%
Four pieces equipped: increases Tingyun’s attack by 20% for one turn after she uses her skill
|Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Holy Hymn in the Xianzhou Luofu’s Cloudford|
|Thief of Shooting Meteor||Two pieces equipped: increases break effect by 16%
Four pieces equipped: increases Tingyun’s break effect by 16%. Tingyun regenerates three energy when she inflicts weakness break on an enemy
|Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Jabbing Punch in Jarilo-VI’s Silvermane Guard Restricted Zone|
|Relic||Effect||How to obtain|
|Space Sealing Station||Two pieces equipped: increases Tingyun’s attack by 12%. When Tingyun’s speed reaches 120 or higher, her attack increases by another 12%||Immersion Reward devices in World 3 of the Simulated Universe|
Relic stat recommendations
- Body: Attack
- Feet: Attack
- Link rope: Energy regeneration
- Planar sphere: Lightning damage increase
- Crit damage, crit rate
Here are all of Tingyun’s attacks, skills, talents, and techniques.
Both her skill and ultimate offer substantial buffs for her allies, so you generally want to focus on using them as much as possible to increase the attack of your main damage dealer. The energy she offers from her ultimate can be vital in dishing out as much damage as possible in a short time frame, and the additional lightning damage offered by her skill can really enhance your DPS.
|Basic: Dislodged (single target)||Tingyun deals lightning damage equal to 50% of her attack to a single enemy|
|Skill: Soothing Melody (support)||Grants a single ally with Benediction to increase their attack by 25%, up to 15% of Tingyun’s current attack. When the ally with Benediction attacks, they deal additional lightning damage equal to 20% of their attack once. Benediction lasts for three turns and is only effective on the most recent receiver of Tingyun’s skill|
|Ultimate: Amidst the Rejoicing Clouds (support)||Tingyun regenerates the target ally’s energy by 50 and increases their damage by 20% for two turns|
|Violet Sparknado||When Tingyun attacks an enemy, the ally with Benediction immediately deals additional lightning damage equal to 30% of their attack to the same enemy|
|Gentle Breeze||Tingyun immediately regenerates 50 energy upon using her technique|
|Nourished Joviality||After using her skill, Tingyun’s speed increases by 20% for one turn|
|Knell Subdual||Increases basic attack damage by 40%|
|Jubilant Passage||Tingyun immediately regenerates five energy at the start of her turn|
Like constellations in Genshin Impact, eidolons are special buffs you can unlock after pulling more than one copy of a character. Here are each of Tingyun’s eidolons.
|E1: Windfall of Lucky Springs||The ally with Benediction’s speed increases by 20% for one turn after Tingyun uses her ultimate|
|E2: Gainfully Gives, Givingly Gains||The ally with Benediction regenerates five energy after defeating an enemy. This effect can only trigger once per turn|
|E3: Halcyon Bequest||Increases the level of Tingyun’s ultimate by two (up to a maximum of level 15), and her basic attack by one (up to a maximum of level ten)|
|E4: Jovial Versatility||Increases the damage multiplier of Benediction by 20%|
|E5: Sauntering Coquette||Increases the level of Tingyun’s skill by two (up to a maximum of level 15), and her talent by two (up to a maximum of level ten)|
|E6: Peace Brings Wealth to All||Increases the energy Tingyun’s ultimate regenerates for the target ally by ten|
You can get Tingyun all the way up to level 80, but you need to use a certain set of materials at specific intervals in order to raise her ascension level. Here are all of Tingyun’s ascension materials.
You can get the immortal materials from the mara-struck enemies on the Xianzhou Luofu, from Honkai Star Rail Simulated Universe and assignment rewards, or from the embers exchange store. The lightning crown of the past shadow materials come from the Honkai Star Rail stagnant shadow in Jarilo-VI’s Backwater Pass.

|30||6.4k||Eight immortal scionette|
|40||12.8k||Five immortal aeroblossom and two lightning crown of the past shadow|
