A good thing about HoYoVerse gacha games is that the free or four-star characters you find can often be fantastic allies. Even if they aren’t as potentially broken as other members of the roster, they can work out rather well. When you start out Honkai: Star Rail, your first ally is the game is March 7th, and there’s so much potential to make this best buddy into a character with a great build even with common Light Cone and Relic options.
What are the best Light Cones for a March 7th build in Honkai: Star Rail?
Basically, your options will be cards that support March 7th, increase her defense, and keep her alive due to her being a The Preservation character. The three-star Defense is good! It restores her health whenever she uses her Ultimate. Given how many enemies weak to ice are around, the three-star Pioneering might be great too. If she Breaks an enemy when it is equipped, she’ll be healed.
I currently have the four-star We are Wildfire equipped on March 7th. It’s a handy support card that decreases everyone’s damage intake for a few turns, while also restoring everyone’s health a bit when a battle starts. Though as you’d expect, the four-star This is Me! one featuring her and Himeko on it is also ideal for her. When equipped, it increases her defense and increases damage dealt with her Ultimate based on her overall defense.
As for a five-star Light Cone, maybe consider Trend of the Universal Market? It increases her defense, burns enemies, and it ensures the damage over time is based on the characters’ defense.
What is the best Relic set for a March 7th build in Honkai: Star Rail?
I’ve found two Relic sets really work best for March 7th in Honkai: Star Rail, and the one you pick depends on the build you’re considering. If you want to prioritize her ice damage, which isn’t a bad idea given her follow-up attacks, then pick Hunter of Glacial Forest. That’s at the Herta Space Station Storage Zone Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Gelid Wind. That increases her ice damage by 10% with two pieces. If you equip four, her critical damage goes up by 25% for two turns after her Ultimate.
Given how many enemies are weak to ice in the early parts of Honkai: Star Rail though, you may want to pick Thief of Shooting Meteor. An easy way to get it is via the Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Jabbing Punch at Jarilo-VI’s Silvermane Guard Restricted Zone. Two pieces of it will “increase Break Effect by 20%.” If you get four pieces, it regenerates three energy when the character causes a Weakness Break. Which will be easier to do, as the Break Effect goes up by 20% again.
Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices, and PS4 and PS5 versions are in development.
