The free Dr. Ratio that Hoyoverse has graced us with is almost upon players of Honkai Star Rail. As we near the second half of version 1.6, players prepare for Dr. Ratio's arrival into the game. As a Hunt character, he will be a free DPS character for all players to enjoy. And based on leaks, he will place quite high in the meta in terms of damage. But to reach his full potential in the meta, you will need the right light cone to pair him with. Here's an analysis and ranking of the top Light Cones tailored for Dr. Ratio.
