Best Ways To Spend Currency In Honkai Star Rail

As a gacha game, Honkai Star Rail has a lot of in-game currencies that players will need to wrap their heads around. Some currencies are invaluable and are recommended to save and horde as much of as possible.

However, other currencies can be spent and quickly replenished without much issue. Knowing the difference between each currency and the best ways to spend them is the best way to optimize your Honkai Star Rail account.

That's where we come in. This article will cover the best ways to spend currency in Honkai Star Rail.

Best Ways To Spend Currency In Honkai Star Rail

The three main currencies in Honkai Star Rail are Undying Embers, Undying Starlight, and Stellar Jade. While other currencies do exist, like Credits, these are not that impactful and can be acquired in excess simply by playing through the game.

It is recommended to know how to spend premium currency in Honkai Star Rail best in order to get the most value out of them. 

Best Ways To Spend Undying Embers In Honkai Star Rail

Undying Embers are acquired every time you Warp in Honkai Star Rail. They can be used to purchase various Materials used for upgrading Traces and Ascensions, as well as Credits.

However, the best use for your Undying Embers is to purchase the monthly Star Rail Special Passes, Regular Star Rail Passes, and Tracks of Destiny (in that order).

Each Star Rail Pass will reset each month, allowing you to get a few extra summons for your account. Materials can be acquired via Synthesis or by farming them, but there is no other way to grind for Star Rail Special Passes.

Best Ways To Spend Undying Starlight In Honkai Star Rail

Undying Starlight is a little more difficult to pin down. Again, this currency is also obtained every time you Warp, and it is possible to use it to exchange for Star Rail Special Passes and Star Rail Passes.

However, we recommend against doing so. This is because Undying Starlight can be used to exchange for Light Cones and four-star characters. Grabbing a guaranteed four-star Light Cone has amazing value, considering the lack of any pity for the launch Light Cones. Additionally, if you desperately require a four-star character, this is a great way to pick them up. 

Best Ways To Spend Stellar Jade In Honkai Star Rail

Stellar Jade is best spent on Star Rail Special Passes. Players can spend Stellar Jade on regular Star Rail Passes or on Trailblaze Power refreshes as well. However, both of these have very little value when compared to acquiring new and powerful characters.
