Heal your allies by going on the attack with the best Honkai: Star Rail Luocha build and obtain a support character that deals a good amount of damage on the side. Luocha follows the Path of The Abundance and deals Imaginary Damage, taking a hybrid role of damage dealer and healer.

Luocha’s Skill, Prayer of Abyss Flower, immediately restores the target’s HP depending on his Attack attribute and creates one stack of Abyss Flower. In addition, a similar effect automatically occurs whenever an ally’s HP drops below 50%. This does not consume a Skill Point and can be triggered every two turns.

His Ultimate, Death Wish, removes one buff from all enemies and deals Imaginary Damage based on Luocha’s Attack. He also gains one stack of Abyss Flower.

Honkai: Star Rail Luocha.

Luocha is a mysterious man and might be plotting something nasty.

Abyss Flower is used to trigger Luocha’s Talent, Cycle of Life. Whenever Luocha has two stacks of Abyss Flower, he consumes them to envelop all enemies inside a Field. When enemies in the Field are attacked by Luocha’s allies, they regenerate HP based on his Attack stat. This effect is active for two turns and disappears if Luocha is knocked out.

All of Luocha’s Eidolon Levels, which can be obtained by pulling additional copies of him, are pretty cracked. Eidolons 1 and 4 buff the Field effect, adding a 20% Attack boost for all allies as well as applying Weakened on all enemies and reducing their damage by 12%. Eidolon 2 buffs Luocha’s Skill, increasing his Outgoing Healing if the target’s HP are below 30% and allowing him to create a Shield on top of the healing if the target’s HP is over 50%. Eidolon 6 enables his Ultimate to lower the Resistance of enemies against all damage types by 20% for two turns.

Luocha is a very powerful support character and might be worth investing in for many players – especially those lacking a second healer or any Imaginary Damage.

Honkai: Star Rail – Luocha: best Light Cones

Luocha has a signature Light Cone in Honkai: Star Rail, which goes by Echoes of the Coffin. It provides the wearer with an Attack boost and regenerates Energy for every opponent hit by an attack from the wearer. Upon the wearer activating their Ultimate, the Light Cone will create an aura boosting the Speed of all allies for a turn.

Since Attack is the defining stat for Luocha’s offensive as well as healing capabilities, there is no reason not to go all in on this attribute. However, that also means that there are currently no other Light Cones aside from his signature item that really play into his strengths.

Best Light Cones for Luocha:

  • Echoes of the Coffin (5-Star)
  • Time Waits for No One (5-Star)
  • Quid Pro Quo (4-Star)
  • Post-Op Conversation (4-Star)

  • Warmth Shortens Cold Nights (4-Star)

Honkai: Star Rail – Luocha: best teams

You can fit Luocha into pretty much every team instead of Natasha or Bailu with the added advantage of him dealing some Imaginary Damage as well, which comes in really handy for anyone without Welt. He’s an especially great asset for Simulated Universe World 5, where Imaginary Damage is strong against several Elites as well as the Boss.
