While Honkai: Star Rail’s fighting tactics heavily rely on Supports carrying the team’s utility, DPS troops are the ones that actually finish the job. Without a DPS, players may engage in endless battles with challenging foes and bosses.
However, each DPS in Honkai: Star Rail shines in their own kit while delivering their distinctive specialisations and Skills because the game’s cast of characters is unlike any other. Here are the top DPS units in Honkai for gamers that are planning to develop their next DPS unit: Star Rail.
10. Physical Trailblazer
Physical Trailblazer in Honkai: Star Rail is a perfect example of a destruction unit that is renowned for its high Survivability and respectable damage. They possess a potent arsenal with great single-target and AoE damage. Players can rely on the Destruction MC to successfully break an enemy’s toughness when that enemy has a physical weakness.
The Destruction Trailblazer’s numbers, which are comparable to those of a 5-star unit in Honkai: Star Rail, together with the fact that players can unlock all of their Eidolons and fully utilise their kit, make them a dependable unit to have.
In Honkai: Star Rail, Sushang is a powerful Hunt Physical character. Sushang’s kit differs from that of the other characters in that she can play three consecutive turns, which allows her to quickly break toughness. Sushang can effectively torture employers by doing a series of actions that leave them unable to even stand. However, some of her kits depend on RNG, making it challenging to maximise her potential if players have bad luck.
Himeko is a key character in Honkai: Star Rail’s Erudition subplot and the queen of follow-up attacks. Players can take advantage of Weakness Break by repeatedly hitting all opponents and dealing Fire damage thanks to Himeko’s Talent. With her Ultimate, Himeko has one of the largest AoE damage outputs in Honkai: Star Rail. Given that Himeko’s Base ATK is one of the strongest in Honkai: Star Rail, her attacks are more lethal due to the high scaling on her Ultimate and Talent. Unfortunately, Himeko is rarely useful versus single-target enemies, making her a poor pick for dealing with moss bosses.
In Honkai: Star Rail, Hook is a potent fire character who can deal significant damage to single targets. Additionally, Hook will cause a DoT with every skill hit, which will up her damage even more thanks to the passive of her Talent. As a Destruction unit, Hook is also capable of doing respectable AoE damage and, according to the passive of her fourth Eidolon, even DoT all the AoE targets she hits. Hook is a pretty trustworthy DoTer and damage dealer, to put it briefly.
In Honkai: Star Rail, Serval is a 4-star character who has a strong Base ATK that enables players to customise her to deal a lot of AoE damage when fighting. Additionally, Serval has the ability to cause Shock on adversaries, which will cause them to sustain damage while also increasing Serval’s damage against them.
Serval’s versatility in combat results from her capacity to play a variety of roles, including that of a devastating AoE or a DoT unit. Serval is unquestionably one of Honkai: Star Rail’s top four-star DPSs in terms of DPS.
Welt is a fantastic damage dealer and sub-DPS. He is a fantastic toughness breaker because his skill is a bounce type that can hit a single adversary numerous times if there is only one of them (like a boss). It also has a chance to slow the victim. Welt’s Ultimate, meanwhile, has a 100% chance of imprisoning all foes while doing AoE damage to them all. When an enemy is imprisoned, their SPD is reduced by 10% and their action is postponed by 32% (at Ultimate level 1).
Since Welt is a fictional character, his primary abilities concentrate upon SPD lowering and the debuff associated with being imprisoned. After that, Welt will deliver more Imaginary damage if he hits a Slowed adversary. Additionally, the opponents were imprisoned and slowed by Welt’s Technique, which 20% delayed their action. All in all, despite not being a focused DPS like Seele or Dan Heng, Welt is a fantastic damage dealer with excellent support potential.
One of the best aspects of Honkai: Star Rail and the major reason Yanqing is the ideal DPS is his capacity to massively enhance his CRIT Rate and DMG. Since Yanqing’s CRIT Rate bonus is sufficient to maintain reliable chances to trigger CRIT on each hit, players can easily stack extra CRIT DMG and ATK% on him to aid in maximising his damage.
Yanqing, a Hunt unit, is quick and adept at taking down bosses, giving him a strong contender to rank among the top five DPS units in Honkai: Star Rail.
3. Jing Yuan
In Honkai: Star Rail, Jing Yuan has not yet been released, although he is anticipated to be a top-tier damage dealer. The Luofu General is more than capable of doing his duty as a DPS, even if Erudition characters are typically lacklustre in single-target situations if players know how to correctly handle Jing Yuan’s stack. Jing Yuan is also excellent at triggering Weakness Break, which will delay the enemy’s action in addition to causing more DMG and applying Shock, thanks to his Lightning Lord’s multi-hit.
Svarog will mark opponents who assault Clara with the Mark of Counter ability in addition to destroying them. After that, Svarog will do twice as much damage to these opponents when players use Clara’s Skill, truly punishing them for touching Clara. Clara is an extremely defensive Destruction Path unit with one of the greatest damage outputs in Honkai: Star Rail and she can efficiently defend her squad.
In Honkai: Star Rail, Seele is a single-target, one-shot, one-kill type of character. Her ability to gain an extra turn after eliminating an enemy makes her even more effective. Seele becomes a monster unit in Honkai: Star Rail with the help of this ability and the damage boost she receives from being buff, and she indubitably merits being at the top of the DPS pyramid.
Honkai: Star Rail is now accessible on PC, iOS, and Android devices. A PlayStation version is currently being created.
