Kafka is one of the most highly-anticipated characters in Honkai Star Rail. Ever since players were first introduced to Kafka at the start of the game, the question on every Trailblazer's lips has been when this character will be playable.

However, before you start pulling for Kafka, is she really worth all the hype? That's where we come in. This article will cover everything you need to know about whether or not to pull for Kafka in Honkai Star Rail.

Should You Pull Kafka In Honkai Star Rail
You should pull Kafka if you have other damage over time (DoT) characters that can take advantage of her abilities. First and foremost, players should be encouraged to pull for any characters they want in Honkai Star Rail. If having Kafka on your account will increase your enjoyment while playing the game, that should take priority over following a tier list. This is especially so, considering Honkai Star Rail is a PVE game, meaning players don't have to keep up with a competitive metagame.
That being said, if you want to maximize your resources, here are a few things to consider before pulling Kafka.
Kafka Is Great at Buffing Other DoT Users
Kafka's abilities all revolve around DoT. Not only can she detonate other friendly DoTs, but she can enhance the DoT potential of other allies with DoT. This means if players don't have any DoT characters on their team or don't like the DoT playstyle, they may want to reconsider pulling Kafka.
However, those looking to invest in future units would do well to pick up Kafka now while they have the chance. After all, it is all but certain that more Nihility Path DoT characters will eventually come into the game, and Kafka will surely work well with their abilities as well, making her a great future-proof character.
Kafka Is Unique
As mentioned, Kafka has an incredibly unique kit, unlike any other character in the game. While Jing Yuan can pump out tons of Lightning damage, DPS characters are typically power crept over the course of a game like Honkai Star Rail as more powerful characters are released. In such cases, characters with unique kits, like Kafka, are far more valuable.
And that's everything you need to know about whether or not to pull Kafka!
