Luka is a four-star Physical character that will arrive alongside Kafka in Honkai Star Rail 1.2. The first new four-star character since Yukong, players are ready to drop their hoard of Stellar Jade and Star Rail Special Passes in order to pull him.
However, before you start pulling for Luka, you may want to consider a few things before you dump your entire currency savings on his banner. That's where we come in. This article will cover what you need to know before pulling Luka in Honkai Star Rail.
Should You Pull Luka In Honkai Star Rail 1.2
You should pull Luka if you plan on running a DoT team setup. First and foremost, players should be encouraged to pull for any characters they want in Honkai Star Rail. If having Luka 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 Luka.
Luka Is Great In A DoT Team
Luka's main draw is that he is a DoT user in a world where we have very few viable DoT characters at this point in time. Luka is the first-ever Physical DoT character in Honkai Star Rail, and if you enjoy the sound of running a DoT team, you should consider picking him up.
Luka Is On Kafka's Banner
Kafka is a highly-anticipated character and a DoT enabler. So, if you don't have Sampo, this is a great chance to start building up your DoT team with both Kafka and Luka.
Four-Star Characters Do Not Have Pity
Unlike five-star characters, there is no guarantee that pulling on Kafka's banner will grant you even a single copy of Luka. While it is very likely to acquire a copy, there is no pity at 90 or 180 pulls like with Kafka. Additionally, Luka will share the rate-up with two other four-star characters, meaning players will need to get extremely lucky to acquire him on the banner. Players should keep this in mind before going too deep into the banner.
And that's everything you need to know about whether or not to pull Luka!
