Put to rest all evil spirits with the best Honkai: Star Rail Huohuo build, adding another powerful support character to your roster. This timid ghost hunter follows the Path of The Abundance, dealing Wind Damage with her attacks – but the offense is not her main purpose, of course.

Huohuo’s Skill, Talisman: Protection, dispels a debuff on the allied target, healing them based on Huohuo’s own maximum HP. Allies adjacent to the target are healed at the same time, though by a lower amount. Using her Skill activates her Talent, Possession: Ethereal Metaflow, giving her the Sacrificed Life status for two turns. Whenever an ally starts their turn or uses their Ultimate when Huohuo has Sacrificed Life, that ally regenerates HP based on Huohuo’s maximum HP. This effect additionally dispels a debuff on said ally and can be triggered up to six times. That trigger count is reset whenever Huohuo uses her Skill.

Her Ultimate, Trail: Spiritual Domination, regenerates the Energy of all party members aside from Huohuo as well as heavily buffing their Attack for two turns.

Obtaining additional copies of Huohuo upgrades her Eidolon Levels, further boosting her power. Eidolon 1 lets Sacrificed Life last one turn longer and adds a Speed boost effect for all allies to the Talent. Eidolon 2 enables Huohuo to revive an ally that was knocked out while Sacrificed Life is active, an effect that can occur two times per battle. Eidolon 4 increases the healing from the Skill and Talent the less HP the target has. Finally, Eidolon 6 adds a damage buff to her healing, boosting the offensive capabilities of the target for two turns.

Ironically, Huohuo is an apprentice ghost hunter, she's confronted with her fears daily.

Honkai: Star Rail – Huohuo: best Relics

HP and Outgoing Healing are the two critical stats for Huohuo you’ll want to boost through Relics, as they will maximize her healing abilities. Speed is always a great attribute to boost as well, as it allows for quicker actions and is a requirement for some Planar Ornaments to provide their full effects, so that’s another one to get. The same goes for Energy Regeneration Rate, which allows a character to get their Ultimate into action much sooner.

Best Relic Sets for Huohuo:

  • Passerby of Wandering Cloud (2) + Longevous Disciple (2) – +10% Outgoing Healing, +12% maximum HP.
  • Passerby of Wandering Cloud (4) – +10% Outgoing Healing, recovers one Skill Point at the start of battle.

Best Planar Ornaments for Huohuo:

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

Prioritize the following Relic and Planar Ornament stats for Huohuo:

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

It may require all her courage, but Huohuo is an incredibly useful asset in a fight.

Honkai: Star Rail – Huohuo: best teams

Huohuo is the best healer released since Luocha. While she gives up some healing capabilities in comparison to some of her peers by having an Ultimate that revolves around buffing, the fact that she comes with amazing dispel capabilities more than makes up for it – Bailu, for example, may be a little better at straight-up HP recovery, but her lack of a dispel has become a major drawback. Basically, you can use Huohuo as any team’s main healer and secondary buffer. She is going to be Skill Point neutral, which means she’ll use as many SP as she generates due to how her kit is set up.

  • Blade (Main DPS), Bronya (Support), Tingyun (Support), Huohuo (Support)

Again, you can use Huohuo effectively in pretty much any team, so this is just a single example. Blade benefits from all the buffs Huohuo and the other Support characters in this party can offer, kicking his offensive capabilities into overdrive. Imbibitor Lunae and Jingliu are other examples for Main DPS characters that could fit into this constellation.

Honkai: Star Rail – Huohuo: ascension materials

Immortal Scionettes are one of the base materials you can easily farm through the Daily Assignments to your characters, making for a steady income of the material. Ascendant Debris is dropped by the Stagnant Shadow in the Fyxestroll Garden or gained through exchange. The best source of Credits is the Golden Calyx in the Great Mine.
