What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Welt build?

Honkai Star Rail’s Welt deals some great damage, but his core responsibility in most teams is his utility. He excels at imprisoning and slowing enemies, often incapacitating them and allowing other teammates to come in and finish the job. As one of only a few imaginary damage characters in the current roster, he’s also extremely valuable when facing off against enemies with imaginary damage weakness.

When building Welt, you want to primarily focus on effect hit rate to maximize his utility, along with crit rate, crit damage, attack, and imaginary damage where possible.

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

In the Name of the World is a five-star light cone designed specifically for Welt. Its increased hit rate helps ensure his imprisonment and slow debuffs snag as many enemies as possible, allowing you to sweep through most battles in a breeze.

However, as it’s a five-star light cone obtainable through gacha, you’ll need a sprinkle of luck from the RNG gods to snag it. If you want to equip him with something in the meantime, aim for something that also increases his effect hit rate where possible, and ensure it also aligns with the path of Nihility.

Light cone Effect How to obtain
In the Name of the World  Increases Welt’s damage to debuffed enemies by 20%. Using Welt’s skill raises the effect hit rate and attack stats by 20% each Gacha
Eyes of the Prey  Increases Welt’s effect hit rate by 20% and increases DoT by 24% Gacha
Void At the beginning of the battle, Welt’s effect hit rate increases by 20% for three turns Gacha, treasure chests, quest rewards

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

As with his light cone, the best relic set for Welt is Wastelander of Banditry Desert due to its increase to imaginary damage and crit rate. Its four-equipped buff suits his skill set perfectly, as he consistently applies debuffs, which means this set consistently increases his damage and crit rate.

We recommend pairing the four-piece set of Wastelander of Banditry Desert with two pieces of Pan-Galactic Commercial Enterprise to boost his crit potential on debuffed enemies further.

Relic Effect How to obtain
Wastelander of Banditry Desert Two equipped: increases imaginary damage by 10%
Four equipped: when Welt attacks debuffed enemies, his crit rate increases by 10%. If the enemy is imprisoned, Welt’s crit damage increases by 20%
Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Conflagration in The Xianzhou Luofu’s Stargazer Navalia
Musketeer of Wild Wheat Two equipped: increases Welt’s attack by 12%
Four equipped: increases Welt’s speed by 6% and his basic attack damage by 10%
Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Drifting in Jarilo-VI’s Corridor of Fading Echoes
