Bring out the strongest performances from your allies with the best Honkai: Star Rail Tingyun build. This silver-tongued Foxian girl follows the Path of the Harmony and dishes out Lightning Damage, though her main strength is to buff up other members of her party – and it’s these boosts that make her one of the most valuable characters in the game.

Tingyun’s Skill, Soothing Melody, grants one ally an Attack buff and applies Benediction to them for three turns. Allies affected by Benediction add Lightning Damage based on their own Attack to any offensive moves they make. They will also make a follow-up attack against any enemy targeted by Tingyun, dealing Lightning Damage.

Honkai: Star Rail Tingyun.

Oh Tingyun, you left us too soon.

Her Ultimate, Amidst the Rejoicing Clouds, provides an allied character with 50 Energy, charging up their Ultimate, and increases their damage for three turns. This combination of abilities allows Tingyun to be an amazing offensive support character.

Tingyun’s Eidolon levels, which are gained after pulling duplicates of her, add even more value to her Skill, enabling to provide additional Speed, Energy Regeneration, and damage. Her sixth and final Eidolon level upgrades her Ultimate, allowing it to regenerate ten additional Energy.

Best Light Cones for Tingyun:

  • The Battle Isn’t Over (5-Star)
  • Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds (4-Star)

Honkai: Star Rail – Tingyun: best teams

Tingyun is fantastic on most teams at this point, greatly boosting their damage output thanks to her support abilities.

  • Seele (Main DPS), Bronya (Support), Tingyun (Support), Bailu (Healer)

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. Bailu joins the fun as a healer to keep everyone healthy. Tingyun buffs Seele’s damage further and restores the team’s Energy.

Tingyun is great with Blade, Yanqing, Trailblazer (Physical), Gepard, Clara, and Dan Heng as well, who benefit massively from her Skill and Ultimate.
