Honkai Star Rail Echo of War Doomsday Beast Is Manageable with the Right Team

After you get to a certain point in Honkai: Star Rail, you’ll unlock the Echo of War weekly boss fights against opponents like Destruction’s Beginning’s Doomsday Beast. These are the foes you’d face during the Trailblazer Missions. However, as you unlock your Trailblaze Level, you’ll be able to take on tougher versions of these challenges. While Doomsday Beast can be a little frustrating, due to how many parts it has, it is still a pretty manageable one at most difficulties.

How do you find Echo of War: Destruction’s Beginning Doomsday Beast weekly boss in Honkai: Star Rail?

First, you need to finish the “In the Dangerous Swamp” Trailblazer Mission on Jarilo-VI. You won’t see any Echo of War weekly boss fights in Honkai: Star Rail until you do.

Once that is accomplished, though, you’ll find Echo of War: Destruction’s Beginning on Herta Space Station on the eastern side of the Supply Zone map. You can see it highlighted in the picture below. After visiting it once, you can teleport to it via the Survival Index.

What kinds of characters should be brought in to face the Doomsday Beast in Honkai: Star Rail?

It is weak against four types of elements. Bringing in people with Fire, Ice, Physical, and Wind attacks will benefit you. The Trailblazer avatar could be a good fit, since you have both Fire and Physical options for them.

Here are some characters you could consider:

  • Fire: Asta, Himeko, Hook, and Trailblazer
  • Ice: Gepard, Herta, March 7th, Pela, and Yanqing
  • Physical: Clara, Natasha, Sushang, and Trailblazer
  • Wind: Bronya, Dan Heng, and Sampo
  • As for a team composition, I think it’s wise to go in with one person who can create shields and another who can act as a healer. Your remaining two should be your damage dealers. This means people like Gepard, March 7th, and Natasha could all be handy. Himeko helped us out with this fight during the Trailblazer mission and is still very handy. I also like both the Fire and Physical Trailblazer, as both feature AOE attacks.

    What do you get for beating the Echo of War: Destruction’s Beginning Honkai: Star Rail Doomsday Beast weekly boss?

    The big “get” from this fight is the Destroyer’s Final Road. You need this item to upgrade Traces for characters like Arlan, Dan Heng, Himeko, Jing Yuan, March 7th, the Trailblazer, and Welt. So since this is a much-needed item, you’ll want to take part in the fight each week.

    You can also get some items you’ll find via other means. Musketeer of Wild Wheat and Thief of Shooting Meteor Relics can drop. You’ll always get Lucent Afterglow for Light Cones. Credits are a given each match too.

    The following four-star Light Cones might also drop.

  • Fermata
  • Past and Future
  • Quid Pro Quo
  • River Flows in Spring
  • The Seriousness of Breakfast
  • We are Wildfire
  • Woof! Walk Time!

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