Honkai Star Rail 1.3 New Stagnant Shadows Guide: Enemies, Materials, & More

Honkai Star Rail is all about collecting characters, powering them up, and taking them into various forms of difficult content. There are tons of ways to increase the strength of your units, whether you level up their skills, equip them with different gear, or increase their Eidolon levels. 

Another way to increase the combat power of your characters is by Ascending them. Ascending characters are required to increase their overall level and will provide a huge boost to their overall power level. In order to Ascend characters, players will need to collect Ascension Materials by challenging various Stagnant Shadows across the world of Honkai Star Rail.

These Stagnant Shadows will provide different items depending on the character's path you want to Ascend. In Honkai Star Rail 1.3, two new Stagnant Shadows will be added to the game. So, if you are curious to learn more, you've come to the right place.

This article will cover everything you need to know about the new Stagnant Shadows coming to Honkai Star Rail in patch 1.3, including the enemies you will face off against, the rewards that can be obtained for defeating these said enemies, and more.
