Introducing the Honkai Star Rail 1.2 Update

Get ready to be astounded, ladies and gentlemen! Brace yourselves for the upcoming Honkai Star Rail 1.2 Update, which is set to bring an overflow of exciting new additions! We are all well aware of the long periods of content scarcity that the Hoyoverse has experienced in the past (I’m looking at you, Genshin Impact), but it seems like the developers have finally heeded the players’ calls for more excitement. So, let us delve right into the details and explore all the exciting features that version 1.2 has for us.

New Characters to Collect

To kick things off, we have some dazzling new characters for you to add to your collection. Introducing Blade, a Wind Destruction DPS who fearlessly trades his own health for devastating damage. And then we have Kafka, a lightning-wielding Nihility DPS master who excels at inflicting long-lasting damage-over-time effects. Last but certainly not least, let’s welcome Luka, a Physical Nihility DPS enthusiast who revels in unleashing her fury upon bleeding targets. These two fresh faces are bound to greatly impact the meta, although personally, Kafka has captured my attention with her unique playstyle.

Continuation of the Storyline

But hold on tight, there’s more! The storyline that left us hanging at the end of the 1.0 release is finally getting its much-anticipated continuation. Prepare to explore the remarkable landscapes of two new expansive zones: The Alchemy Commission and The Scalegorge Waterscape. Trust me when I say that the beauty of these locations is absolutely awe-inspiring. It’s as if the talented artists over at Hoyoverse were given complete creative freedom to let their imaginations run wild.

New Adversaries to Face

Of course, new zones would be incomplete without new adversaries to face. Brace yourselves for the Malefic Ape, a terrifying primate inspired by the Xianzhou, and The Ascended, a mystical human with an air of enigma surrounding them. And guess who else is joining the fray? Yanqing, that cunning individual from the Standard Banner, will finally be revealing his true capabilities. And we mustn’t forget about Phantylia The Undying, the new Weekly Boss. Her multiple phases and cunning mechanics are sure to keep us on our toes.

New Equipment and Sets

Now, let’s turn our attention to equipment. In version 1.2, we will be bestowed with two remarkable new Relic Sets. First up is the Longevous Disciple set, which boosts your maximum HP and grants a delectable increment to your Critical Rate when your HP takes a hit. Additionally, we have the Messenger Traversing Hackerspace set, which enhances your speed and bestows swiftness upon your allies when you unleash your ultimate move. Talk about teamwork!

But that’s not all, my friends. There are also two enticing upcoming Planer Sets. The Broken Keel set centers around Effect Resistance, rewarding you with a surge in Critical Damage when your Resistance reaches a certain threshold. And then we have the Rutilant Arena set, which amplifies your Critical Rate and provides tantalizing bonuses to your basic attacks and skills. It’s like a magnificent combination of power and finesse.

Exciting Events

And let us not overlook the exciting events! First up, we have Tales of the Fantastic, where Mr. Xiyan eagerly awaits to hear about your exciting adventures. Then we have the Underground Treasure Hunt, a perilous expedition where danger lurks around every corner in search of hidden treasures. And of course, we cannot forget the Gift of the Odyssey, a login event that grants you additional roles on the Event Banner. It’s an absolute dream for all of us devoted collectors out there.

A Surprise for Simulation Enthusiasts

Last but certainly not least, we have a breathtaking surprise for all you simulation enthusiasts. In the 1.2 update, the Simulated Universe introduces its seventh world. I don’t know about you, but I personally didn’t expect this update to arrive so soon. I am eagerly anticipating diving into this fresh realm and discovering the wonders and surprises that await us.


So, my friends, mark your calendars. The Honkai Star Rail 1.2 Update will unleash a storm of content on July 18 (or July 19, depending on your location). Prepare yourselves for extraordinary adventures, captivating new characters, and daunting challenges. This is bound to be an unforgettable journey!
