The new update will also feature three new playable characters. First on the list, and finally revealing the true power, Dan Heng • Imbibitor Lunae will join the playable cast as a five-star Imaginary-Type character following the Path of Destruction. On the battlefield, Dan Heng • Imbibitor Lunae displays a unique specialty by consuming multiple Skill Points to unleash powerful abilities. Players can use this feature to enhance his basic attack up to three consecutive times.
Depending on the number of enhancements triggered, the basic attacks will transform into different forms. Furthermore, when unleashing the Ultimate, Dan Heng • Imbibitor Lunae deals Imaginary damage to a single target and adjacent enemies, while also receiving a fixed amount of Squama Sacrosancta to offset the consumption of Skill Points.
Another highly-anticipated character from Xianzhou Luofu, Fu Xuan, will also make her debut on the playable roster. Possessing the mysterious omniscia on her forehead, an instrument enabling her to calculate every move in advance, Fu Xuan stands as a Quantum-Type five-star character following the Path of Preservation. In combats, Fuxuan’s skillsets bestow a variety of effects such as damage reduction and health points reversal via her Talent, absorbing damages for her allies via Skill, and unleashing Quantum damage upon all enemies via her Ultimate.
Players will also be able to recruit Lynx, an endearing character from the noble Landau family. She is a four-star character with an innate fascination for the outside world. During combat, as a Quantum-Type character following the Path of Abundance, Lynx brings a versatile array of healing abilities to her team, letting everyone breath a little easier during the intergalactic journey.
Honkai: Star Rail Version 1.3 Changes
In the unfolding story, Jing Yuan and Dan Heng united to vanquish Phantylia and resolve the Ambrosial Arbor crisis. Now, as the dust settles, the major part of the recovery effort is to help people get their lives back on track. In Version 1.3, a new area called Aurum Alley emerges, eagerly awaiting a much-needed revitalization.
Trailblazers can weigh in by employing strategic logistics planning and efficient cargo organization to shape the alley’s destiny back to its former glory.
Meanwhile, in Version 1.3, Herta’s renowned Simulated Universe undergoes a remarkable upgrade with the introduction of “The Swarm Disaster,” which names after a swarm catastrophe from ages ago that Tayzzyronth, the Aeon of Propagation, caused. To uncover the intricate history and the confrontation between Tayzzyronth and other Aeons, Trailblazers will navigate through dynamically generated domains, face various challenges along the way, and hopefully unlock the thrilling “Path of Propagation” within the Simulated Universe.
