Some Honkai: Star Rail Characters Won’t Visit the Express After Penacony

Ahead of every new Trailblaze Mission in Honkai: Star Rail, HoYoVerse offers notes on them, and the one for “Penacony — Beauty and Destruction” says some characters won’t visit the express following 2.2. The notice also suggested these characters also won’t send players Messages in the in-game texting application.

The announcement began by noting people can’t start “Beauty and Destruction” in Penacony in Honkai: Star Rail unless they already finished “A Walk Among the Tombstones.” This also means someone must be caught up on all Trailblaze Missions released prior to 2.0 and have passed Trailblaze Level 34. It also revealed the typical rewards for completing the latest story missions. These involve things like Credits, EXP, EXP items for characters and equipment, a new piece of music, and Stellar Jades.

It’s after those typical announcements that the reveal about some Honkai: Star Rail characters being unable to visit the Astral Express or send messages after the Penacony missions comes up. The notice suggested that this could be a temporary issue. It also noted that people who get these characters via a banner after the events of the story will get the Stellar Jades and such tied to the messages and visits via another means. We’ve already seen this happen with a few other characters after events on the Xianzhou Luofu, so it is likely the redemption method will be a check-in at the Astral Express book again.

Honkai: Star Rail is available for the PS5, PC, and mobile devices. The 2.2 update arrives on May 8, 2024. It will permanently add the “Penacony — Beauty and Destruction” missions when it does.
