The Astral Express crew’s adventure continues in Honkai: Star Rail update 1.2 with the crisis on the Xianzhou Luofu reaching its climax. Best take advantage of all the bonus resources available during the double drop event right now, because the new boss coming into the game looks hard to overcome – bringing a mixture of healing and HP reduction to the table, this enemy is sure to challenge players.

Naturally, you’ll also have some more tools to work with to overcome these dangers: A wave of additional characters is joining the playable roster on this version’s banners and you’ll be able to farm new Relics and Planar Ornaments to refine your builds. Two new areas as well as the next world in the Simulated Universe will provide lots of opportunities for players to prove themselves and farm resources before the big encounter. A new segment in the Forgotten Hall will even enable you to obtain Yukong for free.
