Peer into the future with the best Honkai: Star Rail Fu Xuan build and protect your team through the power of foresight. Leading the Xianzhou Luofu’s Divination Commission, Fu Xuan is able to use the Matrix of Prescience to steal a look at events to come, allowing her to prevent her allies coming to harm. Naturally, this makes her a follower of The Preservation, while her damage type is Quantum.

Fu Xuan’s Skill, Known by Stars, Shown by Hearts, is using the Matrix of Prescience itself, which after activation increases the Maximum HP of all team members based on Fu Xuan’s own Maximum HP and their Critical Hit Rate. For three turns, 65% of all incoming damage against her allies (before Shield mitigation) is going to be distributed to Fu Xuan.

Her Ultimate, Woes of Many Morphed into One, deals Quantum Damage based on Fu Xuan’s Maximum HP to all enemies and obtains one trigger count for her Talent’s HP restore effect. It’s noteworthy that one of her Traces enables her Ultimate to heal all of her allies based on her own Maximum HP, though it’s by a relatively small percentage.

Fu Xuan is the first Preservation character dealing Quantum Damage.

Speaking of her Talent, Bleak Breeds Bliss, applies a damage reduction aura to the entire team as long as Fu Xuan is on the field. When Fu Xuan’s HP fall below 50%, she will heal herself based on how much health she’s currently missing. This does not prevent her from a killing blow and can only be triggered a maximum of two times per battle (once by default and a second time after using her Ultimate).

Fu Xuan’s Eidolon Levels, which you can obtain by pulling additional copies of her, further boost her power. Eidolon 1 adds a Critical Damage bonus to her Skill’s Knowledge effect. Eidolon 2 is huge, because it allows an ally struck down with a killing blow to survive this hit and gain a big heal while Matrix of Prescience is active – once per battle, at least. Eidolon 4 enables Fu Xuan to regenerate Energy whenever an ally protected by the Matrix of Prescience is hit. Eidolon 6 adds damage to her Ultimate based on the amount of HP allies have lost over the course of the battle, though the amount is capped based on Fu Xuan’s Maximum HP and reset every time she uses her Ultimate.

Honkai: Star Rail – Fu Xuan: best Light Cones

Fu Xuan’s best Light Cone is the one coming into the game alongside her on the 1.3 banners. She Already Shut Her Eyes increases the wearer’s Maximum HP and Energy Regeneration Rate in addition to providing a damage boost to all allies for two turns whenever the wearer loses HP. On top of that, all allies will restore some HP at the beginning of each combat wave based on the amount they’ve lost.

You can see how this fits Fu Xuan: Maximum HP is her most important stat, as everything she does scales with it. Energy is always useful, since that’ll get her Ultimate online faster, enabling her to deal damage and heal her allies. The built-in heal and damage buff are the cherries on top. There aren’t really any other Light Cones for The Preservation yet that focus on Maximum HP.

Best Light Cones for Fu Xuan:

  • She Already Shut Her Eyes (5-Star)
  • Moment of Victory (5-Star)
  • Texture of Memories (5-Star)
  • Trend of the Universal Market (4-Star)
  • Defense (3-Star)
  • Pioneering (3-Star)

Fu Xuan is quite ambitious, aiming to replace Jing Yuan as general of the Cloud Knights.

Honkai: Star Rail – Fu Xuan: best Relics

Fu Xuan is best served with Relics and Planar Ornaments that provide her with maximum HP or reduce the amount of damage she’s taking, since she’ll clearly fulfill a tank role in most teams. A hybrid build with some focus on the offense is conceivable, but probably won’t be how most fans play her.

Best Relic Sets for Fu Xuan:

  • Longevous Disciple (2) + Guard of Wuthering Snow (2) – +12% Maximum HP and +8% Damage Reduction.
  • Guard of Wuthering Snow (4) – +8% Damage Reduction; the wearer is healed by 8% of their Maximum HP and gains 5 Energy when their HP is below 50% at the start of the turn.
  • Longevous Disciple (4) – +12% Maximum HP, +8% Critical Hit Rate for all allies for two turns (up to two stacks) when the wearer is hit or has their HP consumed by an ally or themselves.

Best Planar Ornaments for Fu Xuan:

  • Fleet of the Ageless (2) – +12% Maximum HP, +8% Attack for all allies when the wearer’s Speed reaches 120 or higher.

Prioritize the following Relic and Planar Ornament stats for Fu Xuan:

  • Head – HP (Primary), HP %, Speed, Defense %, Effect Resistance %
  • Hands – Attack (Primary), HP %, Speed, Defense %, Effect Resistance %
  • Body – HP% (Primary), Speed, Defense %, Effect Resistance %, Critical Hit Damage %
  • Feet – Speed (Primary), HP %, Defense %, Effect Resistance %, Critical Hit Damage %
  • Planar Sphere – HP % (Primary), Speed, Defense %, Effect Resistance %, Critical Hit Damage %
  • Link Rope – Energy Regeneration Rate % (Primary), HP %, Speed, Defense %, Effect Resistance %

Fu Xuan's Matrix of Prescience is a powerful tool in combat.

Honkai: Star Rail – Fu Xuan: best teams

Fu Xuan takes on the role of a tank with some support capabilities in both the offensive and defensive directions.

The release of Fu Xuan and Lynx enables players to build full Quantum Damage teams now, which is a potent option thanks to Silver Wolf – not only is she a fantastic debuff character, her ability to infuse weaknesses into enemies comes in very handy here. With only Quantum units present in this team, Quantum is the only weakness type Silver Wolf will inflict. This means that you can fight literally any enemy with this team and cause Weakness Break.

Seele or Quinque will be the main damage dealers, Fu Xuan provides support and tanks damage, while Lynx will be the main healer. If you trust in your Fu Xuan, you could leave out Lynx in favor of Quinque for even more damage.

Other than that, Fu Xuan will be a great addition to pretty much any team that requires some sustain.

Another point in Fu Xuan's favor: Her Ultimate animation goes really hard.

Honkai: Star Rail – Fu Xuan: ascension materials

Artifex’s Modules are one of the base materials you can easily farm through the Daily Assignments to your characters, making for a consistent income of the material.

Nail of the Ape is dropped by the Stagnant Shadow in Scalegorge Waterscape or gained through exchange. The best source of Credits is the Golden Calyx in the Great Mine.
