Honkai: Star Rail Robin Gameplay Explained

HoYoverse showcased the gameplay mechanics for the upcoming Honkai: Star Rail character Robin with a character preview and a new video in the “Keeping Up With Star Rail” series. Robin is a Physical element character walking the Path of Harmony, and she is set to arrive in update 2.2.

Both the character preview on HoYolab and the video preview go over Robin’s kit, though the latter features extra input from her brother Sunday. He’s voiced by his English voice actor Griffin Puatu. Robin’s abilities revolve around buffing allies’ damage, especially on follow up attacks. Her Skill Pinion’s Aria applies a team-wide damage boost for three turns, while her Tonal Resonance Talent boosts allies’ crit damage and regenerates her energy when they attack. This allows her to charge her Ultimate quickly, which then grants allies immediate actions and bonuses to their damage based on Robin’s attack stat. Interestingly, Robin herself cannot act while her ultimate is active and its duration is not affected by her speed stat.

HoYoverse also recently released an animated short to advertise the Honkai: Star Rail 2024 Music Concert. The game will also feature in an Ichiban Kuji lottery by Bandai Spirits with 7 different kinds of prizes available, including a mug shaped like a trash can.

Robin is set to become available in Honkai: Star Rail with the arrival of Update 2.2, scheduled for release on May 8, 2024. The game itself is readily available on PC, PS5, and mobile devices.
