Black Swan is a five-star Wind Element Nihility Path character in Honkai Star Rail. She is primarily a DoT-focused character, able to inflict debuffs that will chip away at enemy health over time. 

Character building is a core component in Honkai Star Rail, and ensuring your characters have the best Light Cones, Relics, and Planar Ornaments will be the difference-maker when it comes to most endgame high-difficulty content. 

So, if you are curious to learn more, we have the answers you need. This article will cover the best Black Swan build in Honkai Star Rail.

Best Light Cone

While not yet released, the best Light Cone for Black Swan will undoubtedly be the limited Event Light Cone that releases alongside her character banner. Every limited character so far has been released alongside a dedicated Light Cone banner, which compliments their kit, so it is safe to say that Black Swan will be no exception. 

Light Cone Effect (Reforged Remembrance): 

Effect Hit Rate increases by 40%, and when the wearer deals damage to an enemy inflicted with Wind Shear, Burn, Shock, or Bleed, they will gain 1 stack of Prophecy (max 4 stacks), and each type of DoT can only generate 1 stack. Each stack of Prophecy increases the wearer's ATK by 5%, and the DoT dealt ignores 7.2% of the target's DEF

Best Relics

Prisoner in Deep Confinement is a great set for Black Swan, which can increase her DoT potential. Pairing Black Swan with a DoT enabler like Kafka while using this set will be an amazing combo. 

As for Plana Ornaments, Space Sealing Station is best as DoT damage scales with ATK. 

Prisoner in Deep Confinement:

  • 2-Piece Bonus: Increases ATK by 6%.

  • 4-Piece Bonus: For every DoT the target enemy is afflicted with, the wearer will ignore 6% of its DEF when dealing DMG to it. This effect is valid for a max of 3 DoTs.

Space Sealing Station:

  • 2-Piece Bonus: Increases ATK by 12%. When the wearer's SPD reaches 120 or higher, the wearer's ATK increases by an extra 12%
