After you solve the problems in Jarilo-VI in Honkai: Star Rail, you get to build up a The Preservation Trailblazer who is a fire element character. They play quite differently than the Physical Trailblazer on The Destruction path we begin with. However, they’re equally helpful, and it’s pretty simple to find Trailblazer Light Cones and Relics that work with this fire build in Honkai: Star Rail.

What are the best Light Cones for a The Preservation Trailblazer build in Honkai: Star Rail?

One of the key elements of a The Preservation Trailblazer in Honkai: Star Rail is acting as a tank that draws enemy attacks. So, you want to stay alive. Some good three-stars are Amber and Defense. The former’s description for a card that hasn’t been Superimposed says, “Increases DEF of its wearer by 16%. If current HP of its wearer is less than 50% of Max HP, increases DEF by an extra 16%.” The latter is more about keeping the Trailblazer alive, as it restores HP by at least 18% of their max health when their Ultimate is used.

For four-star Light Cones, I like Landau’s Choice. It further makes a The Preservation Trailblazer a target in Honkai: Star Rail, but also decreases the amount of damage they take from enemies’ attacks by at least 16%. This is Me is also good. As its description reads, it, “Increases the wearer’s DEF by 16%. Increases the DMG of the wearer when they use their Ultimate by 60% of the wearer’s DEF. This effect only apply 1 time per enemy target.”

Finally, if you can get the five-star Moment of Victory Light Cone, it’s great! Again, since it’s a long description, I’m going to just type out the official details about it from HoYoVerse. It “increases the wearer’s DEF by 24% and Effect Hit Rate by 24%. Increases the chance for the wearer to be attacked by enemies. When the wearer is attacked, increase their DEF by and extra 24% until the end of the wearer’s turn.”

What are the best Relics for a fire Trailblazer build in Honkai: Star Rail?

Since you’re probably using the fire Trailblazer for their defensive The Preservation skills and not actual fiery assaults, there’s pretty much one option I’d recommend. I say go with Knight of Purity Palace. It will take you a little while to get it, since it’s in the Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Holy Hymn at Xianzhou Luofu’s Cloudford area. However, it’s worth the wait. Two pieces of it will boost the Trailblazer’s defense by 15%. If you get four pieces, then any shields they create absorb 20% more damage.

Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices, and PS4 and PS5 versions are in development.
