Yanqing can be a powerful ally, but only if you know how to build him correctly. That's where we come in. So, if you want to know more about Yanqing, you've come to the right place. This article will cover everything you need to know about the best Yanqing build in Honkai Star Rail, including Light Cones, Relics, and more.
Honkai Star Rail: Best Yanqing Build
Yanqing follows the Hunt path, meaning he is a powerful single-target damage dealer. As such, players will want to build Yanqing with as much damage as possible.
Best Light Cone
The best Light Cone for Yanqing is In the Night or Sleep Like the Dead. In the Night is Seele's event Light Cone, meaning it is not as easily accessible anymore for those who don't already own it. However, it provides a huge boost to your damage the more speed your unit has. Alternatively, Sleep Like the Dead is Yanqing's signature Light Cone, and also provides a huge boost to Crit Rate (allowing your build to focus more on raw DMG).
In the Night
Increases the wearer's CRIT Rate by 18%. While the wearer is in battle, for every 10 SPD that exceeds 100, the DMG of the wearer's Basic ATK and Skill is increased by 6% and the CRIT DMG of their Ultimate is increased by 12%. This effect can stack up to 6 time(s).
Sleep Like the Dead
Increases the wearer's CRIT DMG by 30%. When the wearer's Basic ATK or Skill does not result in a CRIT Hit, increases their CRIT Rate by 36% for 1 turn. This effect can be only triggered 1 time every 3 turn(s).
Hunter of Glacial Forest (4-piece) is the best Relic set for Yanqing, but if you don't have it, you can go with Musketeer of Wild Wheat (4-piece).
Hunter of Glacial Forest
- 2-Piece Bonus: Increases Ice DMG by 10%.
- 4-Piece Bonus: When the wearer uses Ultimate, increases the wearer's Crit DMG by 25% for 2 turn(s).
Muketeer of Wild Wheat
- 2-Piece Bonus: Increases ATK by 16%.
- 4-Piece Bonus: Increases the wearer's SPD by 6% and basic attack DMG by 10%.
And that's everything you need to know about the best Yanqing build in Honkai Star Rail.
