[Guide] Honkai Star Rail’s Gacha System Defined

Honkai Star Rail launched earlier this week, and after spending a lot time with the sport and gacha rolling on the several types of banner making an attempt to get Himeko, right here’s what I imagine each Free-To-Play participant leaping into Honkai Star Rail ought to know and possibly observe.

Do take notice that this information relies on model 1.0 of the sport and would replicate the present state of the Gacha System which can change over time in the course of the course of the sport’s lifespan and won’t embody the Departure Warp banner (which it’s best to roll on first) that ensures you a 5-star character after 50 pulls.

The System Defined

Honkai Star Rail’s gacha system has two varieties of banners that makes use of two varieties of forex that are:

  • Stellar Warp – Star Rail Passes
  • Occasion Character and Mild Cone Warp – Particular Star Rail Passes

Stellar Warp System

When you hit that 0.600% fee, you’ll then be subjected to a 0.300% fee for both a Mild Cone or Character showing in your attracts.

However the charges do look lower than pleasant, as 4-star sort attracts have a 99.400% probability of showing whereas 5-star sorts are at a fee of solely 0.600%.

No less than its a brand new character this time round

Starlight Alternate Retailer

Fortunately not all is misplaced from my lower than favorable roll pictured above, as these Mild Cones give again sources that permits you to trade for gadgets or characters within the Starlight Alternate retailer. The sources are Timeless Starlight and Timeless Embers.

  • 5-star Mild Cone – 40 x Timeless Starlight
  • 4-star Mild Cone – 8 x Timeless Starlight
  • 3-star Mild Cone – 20 x Timeless Embers

Timeless Starlight might be exchanged for each sort of Rail Passes, 5-star Mild Cones, in addition to 4-star Characters like Asta and Arlan. A few of these gadgets refreshes weekly so I’d encourage you to buy a few of these gadgets (when you’ve got the forex for them) simply to make it extra environment friendly.

On prime of that, Honkai Star Rail additionally affords the final word pity system for its Stellar Warp banner within the type of a 5-star character selector. This selector is just obtainable for individuals who have spent 300 Warps within the Stellar Warps and is just claimable as soon as per account.

Character Occasion Warp System 

In Honkai Star Rail, the restricted characters are put in a separate banner the place you will want to make use of Particular Rail Passes to roll for them. Throughout this time the restricted 5-star character alongside promotional 4-star characters could have boosted charges. The restricted 5-star character has a 100% probability of showing supplied that you simply managed to hit that 5-star character fee of 0.600% twice in a row.

That is because of the reality, that the primary 5-star character you get inside the Character Occasion Warp banner could have a 50% probability to be the restricted character, whereas the second time round ensures it to be the restricted character. The promotional 4-star characters observe the identical guidelines because the 5-star character when it comes to look fee whereby you might be assured a 100% probability to get the promotional 4-star character if the primary one was not a promotional character.

When it comes to exchangeable forex such because the Timeless Starlight and Timeless Embers, they’re just like that within the Stellar Warp System with 4-star Mild Cones giving 8x Timeless Starlight and 3-star Mild Cones giving 20x Timeless Embers. This additionally extends to the characters as nicely which can also be just like the Stellar Warp System.

You will need to take notice that each 90 Warps on this banner will assure a 5-star character, and the Warp Depend for Assure will likely be carried over to different Character Occasion Warps. For instance, if I had 80 extra Warps until assure of a 5-star character, this worth will stay the identical for the subsequent Restricted Character Banner if I made a decision to attend on the subsequent one.

The charges for the characters within the Restricted Character Occasion Warp are just like that of those within the Stellar Warp, with the exception that you’ll not get a 5-star Mild Cone in the course of the 90 Warp 5-star assure.

Mild Cone Occasion Warp System 

For the Restricted Mild Cones Occasion Warp, the charges are completely different as the bottom probability of acquiring a 5-star Mild Cone is 0.800% with each 80 Warps guaranteeing a 5-star Mild Cone.

The bottom probability of acquiring both a 4-star Mild Cone or Character sits at 3.300% whereas each 10 Warps on this banner ensures a 4-star or above as a reward. Inside this assure the possibility to acquire a 4-star character or Mild Cone will likely be 99.200% whereas the 5-star Mild Cone drop fee sits at 0.800%.

Very like the Character Occasion Warp, the Mild Cone Warp additionally has a boosted fee which provides you a 75% probability to get the promotional 5-star Mild Cone for those who managed to hit the 0.800% fee.

When it comes to exchangeable forex such because the Timeless Starlight and Timeless Embers, they’re just like that within the Stellar Warp System with 5-star Mild Cones giving x40 Timeless Starlight, 4-star Mild Cones giving 8x Timeless Starlight and 3-star Mild Cones giving 20x Timeless Embers. This additionally extends to the characters as nicely which can also be just like the Stellar Warp System.

Summarizing The Above

Judging by the charges and mechanics of Honkai Star Rail’s gacha system, I imagine the best manner in using the Rail Passes is to solely Warp on Restricted Character Occasion Banners/Mild Cone Banners. Whereas the charges stay just like those within the Stellar Warp, on the very least for those who do handle to hit the 5-star fee of 0.600% you’ll solely get both a Character or a Mild Cone on their respective banners which primes you for a 100% assure the second time you hit that 0.600% fee.

Whereas I do perceive that the currencies between the 2 are completely different, I’d nonetheless save the Star Rail Passes for maybe an upcoming promotion or when extra 5-star characters enter the pool. That is after all supplied that you’re snug together with your present lineup of characters and Mild Cones.

Personally, I solely have Bailu as my 5-star character which got here from the Departure Warp assure (roll on this) and to date I’ve been clearing content material fairly nicely together with her and my workforce. Whereas it may have been made simpler if I had an all 5-star workforce, you can nonetheless deal with content material comparatively nicely with the precise lineup and technique.
