Honkai: Star Rail has tons of unique and interesting characters for players to collect and try out. The first four-star character all players will receive during the tutorial of the game will be Asta, meaning she will likely fill up a slot on your early game team.
However, Asta is not just a placeholder until you get better units. In fact, Asta can be a great asset to a team even as you push further into the late game.
So, if you are interested in learning more about Asta, you've come to the right place. This article will cover everything you need to know about Asta in Honkai Star Rail, including her best Relics, Light Cones, and more.
Honkai Star Rail: Best Asta Build
Asta is a powerful fire element Harmony character capable of buffing allies. Her main role is to increase the party's speed via the use of her Ultimate while also passively buffing the party's attack stat.
Asta may not be as powerful as other Harmony characters like Bronya, but being a four-star character means it is a lot easier to obtain her Eidolon levels and increase her viability.
Best Light Cone
The best Light Cone for Asta is Planetary Rendezvous. This Light Cone is less flexible than other Light Cones that can be used for Asta, but when used in a mono fire team, the DMG dealt by party members thanks to this Light Cone increase dramatically. It has the following effect:
After entering battle, when all allies deal the same DMG Type as the wearer, DMG dealt increases by 12%/15%/18%/21%/24%.
Here are some alternative Light Cones for Asta.
But the Battle Isn't Over
Increases the wearer’s Energy Regeneration Rate by 8%/10%/12%/14%/16% and regenerates 1 Skill Point when the wearer uses their Ultimate on an ally. This effect can be triggered after every 2 uses of the wearer’s Ultimate. When the wearer uses their Skill, the next ally taking action deals 30%/37.5%/45%/52.5%/60% more DMG for 1 turn(s).
Firesmith of Lava Forging (4-piece) is the best Relic set for Asta to increase her fire DMG. Fleet of the Ageless is the best Planar Ornament to increase the party's DMG.
Firesmith of Lava Forging
- 2-Piece Bonus: Fire Lightning DMG by 10%.
- 4-Piece Bonus: Increases the wearer's Skill DMG by 12%. After unleashing Ultimate, increases the wearer's Fire DMG by 12% for the next attack.
Fleet of the Ageless
- 2-Piece Bonus: Increases the wearer's Max HP by 12%. When the wearer's SPD reaches 120 or higher, all allies' ATK increases by 8%.
