Honkai: Star Rail is a game where even four-star characters can be the best, and Tingyun is an especially helpful one with the right Relic set and Light Cone build. Like her and Pela are both extraordinarily helpful. Increasing her attack and making great use of her Blessing ability and energy regeneration is key for making sure characters like Seele get to use their Ultimates more often.

What are the best Light Cones for a Tingyun build in Honkai: Star Rail?

The best possible Light Cone for your Tingyun build in Honkai: Star Rail is the five-star But the Battle Isn’t Over. This is partially because of its “When the wearer uses their Skill, the next ally taking action (except the wearer) deals 30% more DMG for 1 turn(s)” part of its base ability. Tingyun is all about increasing a target ally’s attack and adding Lightning damage to it, and this increases that further. That Light Cone’s “Increases the wearer’s Energy Regeneration Rate by 10% and regenerates 1 Skill Point when the wearer uses their Ultimate on an ally” part also pairs perfectly with her Ultimate, which also increases the target’s energy and damage. Bronya may be on that ‘card,” but it’s basically made for Tingyun.

For three-star ones, I’d say Meshing Cogs or Chorus are great. The former helps her get energy faster, so you can use her Ultimate on an ally sooner. The latter increases everyone’s attack by a certain percent, which greatly benefits her Skill.

As for four-stars, there are two I’d recommend. One is Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds. It will either increase everyone’s attack, increase everyone’s critical damage, or increase everyone’s energy regeneration by a set percent each time Tingyun gets her turn, and all three bonuses work perfectly with her kit. The other is Kites from the Past. That cases the ally acting after she uses her Skill to deal extra damage that turn, which is fantastic if it happens to someone Tingyun just “blessed.”

What are the best Relic sets for a Tingyun build in Honkai: Star Rail?

I know for a lot of characters, I’ve tried to recommend two Relic sets for a character. That isn’t going to happen with Tingyun. Her Soothing Melody skill relies too heavily on her attack. You have to go with Musketeer of Wild Wheat. It’s “ATK increases by 12%” two-piece bonus and “the wearer’s SPD increases by 6% and Basic ATK DMG increases by 10%” four piece are too helpful for what you’re going to accomplish with her. Stick with that. Go to the Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Drifting at Jarilo-VI’s Corridor of Fading Echoes and try and find her pieces that increase her attack and speed as much as possible.

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