The best Honkai: Star Rail Seele build focuses on the character’s offensive capabilities, giving you a truly lethal tool to use against any enemies you may encounter. The Underworld girl from below Belobog is a deadly opponent for anyone daring to face her. Following The Hunt, Seele is specialized at dishing out Quantum Damage against single targets.

Her Skill, Sheathed Blade, deals a solid amount of damage and boosts Seele’s Speed by 25% for two turns, letting her gain some tempo. Her Ultimate, Butterfly Flurry, allows her to enter a buffed state and deal a massive amount of damage to a single enemy.

Seele debuted in version 1.0 as the best damage dealer at the time. She's aged well since then.

This enhanced state is not only available through her Ultimate: Whenever Seele kills an enemy, she enters the buffed state with increased damage and gains an extra turn immediately. This is what makes her such a formidable force on the battlefield.

Honkai: Star Rail – Seele: best Light Cones

Seele ultimately wants as much Attack, Critical Hit Rate, and Critical Hit Damage as she can get. Her signature Light Cone, In the Night, delivers on that front: It boosts the wearer’s Critical Hit Rate and for every ten points of Speed above 100 increases the wearer’s Attack and Skill Damage as well as the Critical Hit Damage of their Ultimate.

Since Seele can build up Speed through her Skill, this synergizes well with her kit – especially with Eidolon 2, which allows that Speed bonus to stack up to two times.

Best Light Cones for Seele:

  • In the Night (5-Star)
  • Cruising in the Sellar Sea (5-Star)
  • Sleep like the Dead (5-Star)
  • Only Silence Remains (4-Star)
  • Darting Arrow (3-Star)

Sending enemies into the sea of butterflies is what Seele does best.

Honkai: Star Rail – Seele: best teams

Seele is primed for the Main DPS position on a team that has to deal with enemies weak to Quantum Damage.

This team focuses on maximizing the damage output of Seele in various ways. Bronya can buff her allies’ Attack and Critical Hit Damage in addition to manipulating the turn order in the team’s favor, which enables Seele to get into action again much quicker.

Asta is another solid Support character on a team around Seele, as she can boost allied characters’ Speed, allowing Seele to gain even more momentum. Finally, Bailu joins the fun as a healer to keep everyone healthy, though she can provide a small Damage buff as well as Energy Regeneration on higher Eidolon levels.

Natasha, Lynx, Huohuo, or Luocha are always a great alternative option for those without Bailu, while Tingyun or Yukong could provide useful buffs instead of Bronya or Asta. Shielders like Fu Xuan, March 7th, Gepard, and Trailblazer (Fire) are possible additions to this team as well to keep it safe from harm.
