Divergent Universe Will Make Farming Easier in Honkai: Star Rail

HoYoVerse has given more information on Divergent Universe, which will be a new kind of Simulated Universe-like endgame content in Honkai: Star Rail. In order to access it, you’ll need to clear Simulated Universe: World 3 first.

This will be a permanent game mode after Version 2.3. Prizes will include the usual, such as Stellar Jades, Tracks of Destiny, and Self-Modeling Resin. You’ll also be able to get tickets to use in the Herta Store. Divergent Universe will play like ordinary Simulated Universe. However, aside from the usual challenge mode, there will be new, limited-time modes that’ll refresh every week.

Divergent Universe will also feature two new mechanics: Equations and Weighted Curios. Equations are upgraded Blessings, but you have to meet the requirements before they can activate. Weighted Curios are rarer than normal Curios but they have more potent effects. Collecting these can allow you to get rewards. Unlike in the normal Simulated Universe, you’ll be able to switch your characters and party on the fly. This, along with buffs from the Arithmetic Mapping System, can allow you to bring in characters even if they’re not ready yet for the difficulty level.

Finally, you’ll be able to encounter Ruan Mei’s Creations and use them to reset your Blessings. You can also save your completion file for each run and load them up in Boss Challenges. You’ll also be able to bring in support characters, which was something you couldn’t do before in Simulated Universe. Boss Challenges are good for players who just want to farm for Planar Ornaments.

Honkai: Star Rail is readily available on the PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Divergent Universe will appear in Honkai: Star Rail in Version 2.3, which will go live on June 19, 2024.
