The path and combat type system in Honkai: Star Rail prevents the game from being stale even when a ton of characters are released since all of them bring something unique to the table. HoYoverse is also known for having characters with elements from various paths, which is the same in the case of Huohuo.

Honkai: Star Rail – Five Star Character Tier List

When there are different characters in a game, there’s bound to be a difference between their power level, which puts them in different tiers.

She’s a five-star Wind character following the path of Abundance, but you can also find multiple elements of the Harmony path in her base kit and Eidolons. Huohuo is also one of the easiest characters to build since you don’t need to get too many specific stats on her.

Updated December 20, 2023: We’ve added a video version of this guide to help you build up this five-star wind character.


Best Relics And Planar Ornaments For Huohuo

Even when it comes to support characters without too many build requirements, Relics and Planar Ornaments play a huge role because of their two-piece and four-piece bonuses. Here are the best bonuses you’ll find for Huohuo:

Type

Name

Reason For Synergy With Huohuo

Relics

Messenger Traversing Hackerspace

This is the ideal set for all the support characters who apply their Ultimate to allies since it gives them SPD on two-piece while also giving some SPD to all the allies after using the Ultimate.


However, the SPD increase on the two-piece might not be the best for Huohuo since she becomes more Skill-Point-hungry with higher SPD.

Passerby of Wandering Cloud

If you’re planning to build Huohuo on slow SPD to make her Skill last as long as possible, this is going to be the best Relic set for you. It increases your healing while also giving a free Skill point at the start of battle.

Planar Ornaments

Broken Keel

Huohuo can benefit a lot from Effect RES since you wouldn’t want your cleanser to get crowd-controlled, and this set increases this benefit even further. It gives your allies free Crit DMG as long as you have 30 percent Effect RES.

Fleet of the Ageless

This is one of the early game sets that can be great on Huohuo since it gives her HP, doesn’t require a ton of SPD, and also increases her allies’ ATK. This ATK increases stacks with her Ultimate as well.

Penacony, Land of the Dreams

This set can be quite niche, but if you’re planning to use Huohuo with a Wind DPS like Blade or Dan Heng, this will be your best choice since it increases their DMG by ten percent.


It also gives her a bit of Energy Regeneration Rate, which lets you apply the Energy bonus and ATK buff more often.

Once you decide on the Relic and Planar Ornament set you want to use on Huohuo, the next step is to figure out their main and sub-stats. Unlike other characters, you don’t have nearly as much pressure while building Huohuo’s Relics, but you’d still want to work on them as much as possible.

Here are the main stats you’d want to be looking for her:

Gear Type

Main Stat Priority

Body

HP Percent

Feet

SPD / HP Percent (if you’re planning to go for a slow Huohuo build)

Planar Sphere

HP Percent

Link Rope

Energy Regeneration Rate

Apart from the main stats, all you need is some more HP Percent, Effect RES, and SPD on the sub-stats for your Relics.

You can also have some Break Effect for situations where you might be forced to break the enemy’s Toughness with her.

Best Light Cones For Huohuo

Huohuo has quite a flexible range of Light Cones in the game, with one of them being completely free to Superimpose Five in the game:

Night of Fright

If you can go for Huohuo’s signature weapon, that will be the best choice since it gives her more Energy Regeneration Rate and healing while also letting her stack even more ATK on her allies. She can be used as a phenomenal Harmony character with this.

Time Waits for No One

You can get this Light Cone for free if you amass enough Starlight, and it can increase her Max Hp and Outgoing Healing. Moreover, it also lets her team do a bit of extra DMG based on the healing she provides.

Shared Feelings

This is a simple four-star Light Cone that gives you some extra healing and lets Huohuo regenerate extra Energy for allies when her Skill is used, which is great along with the Energy provided by her Ultimate.

Perfect Timing

If you’re planning to use the Broken Keel set on Huohuo, this Light Cone can help with that as it gives you a staggering 16 percent Effect RES on Superimposition One. It also gives you some extra healing based on your Effect RES.

Hey, Over Here

This is the free Light Cone that you can get on Huohuo, and it increases both her Max HP and Outgoing Healing. However, it doesn’t give her any other special boost. It’s still a great Light Cone, but you have better choices in the game.

Huohuo Trace Priority

If you’re a free-to-play or low-spending player in Honkai: Star Rail, you’ll have quite a hard time getting the required resources to level up Huohuo’s Traces since Trace Materials take quite a lot of Power. Huohuo’s Skill and Talent do all the healing for her, while her Ultimate increases her party’s Energy and ATK.

Ideally, you’d want to go for her Ultimate first since her Skill’s healing is already quite good and it’s more important to get the ATK buffs. However, you’d want to focus on her Skill and Talent immediately after, especially if you’re planning to use her in endgame content like Memory of Chaos or Simulated Universe.

You can leave her Basic Attack at level three or four since it doesn’t deal a lot of DMG even at a higher level.

Is Huohuo Worth Pulling?

The biggest question for every F2P player whenever a new character launches is if they’re worth pulling since you can’t usually afford to get all the characters. However, if you don’t have at least two good sustainers on your team, the answer is a definite yes. It’s extremely important to have two sustainers because of Memory of Chaos.

If you want to beat MoC, you can’t afford to have to bring two healers or shielders on the team since you’ll lack the damage. Huohuo is a perfect solo-sustainer and she also buffs the team’s ATK, which lets you have additional DMG.
