Honkai Star Rail 1.5 Introduces New Relic and Planar Ornament Sets
The Honkai Star Rail Version 1.5 update is set to bring a plethora of exciting content for players. And while many are eager to get their hands on the latest characters the game has to offer, the update also includes new Relic Sets and Planar Ornaments. In this article, we'll take a closer look at these new additions to the Relic and Planar Ornament roster and explore which characters can benefit the most from them.
New Relic Sets in Honkai Star Rail 1.5
The Honkai Star Rail 1.5 update introduces two new Relic Sets, each catering to a different playstyle. Let's take a closer look at these Relic Sets:
The Ashblazing Grand Duke:
2-Piece Set Bonus: Increases follow-up attack DMG dealt by 20%.
4-Piece Set Bonus: When the wearer uses follow-up attacks, their ATK increases by 6% every time the follow-up attack deals DMG. This effect can stack up to eight times and lasts for three turns.
The Ashblazing Grand Duke set is perfect for characters who heavily rely on auto-attack mechanics to inflict damage. Characters like Topaz, Jing Yuan, and Himeko can benefit greatly from this set. Even Clara, whose counters are considered follow-up attacks in Honkai Star Rail, can make use of this set to enhance her damage output.
Prisoner in Deep Confinement:
2-Piece Set Bonus: Increases ATK by 12%.
4-Piece Set Bonus: For every Damage-over-Time (DoT) effect the target enemy is afflicted with, the wearer will ignore 6% of its DEF when dealing DMG to it. This effect is valid for a maximum of three DoTs.
The Prisoner in Deep Confinement Relic is tailor-made for DoT users. Characters like Kafka, Sampo, and Guinaifen, who excel at applying Damage-over-Time effects, can maximize their potential with this set. Kafka, in particular, can make the best use of this Relic set, given her reliance on Shock applications to deal damage.
Planar Ornaments in Honkai Star Rail 1.5
Alongside the Relic Sets, Honkai Star Rail 1.5 also introduces two new Planar Ornaments, designed to boost various aspects of character performance. Here's what you need to know about them:
Firmament Frontline Glamoth:
2-Piece Set Bonus: Increases the wearer's ATK by 12%.
Additional Bonus: When the wearer's SPD is equal to or higher than 135 or 160, the wearer deals 12% or 18% more DMG, respectively.
The Firmament Frontline Glamoth set is an excellent choice for characters with SPD built into their kit or those who require high SPD to be effective in battle. This set can significantly enhance the damage output of characters like Imbibitor Lunae and Seele, making them even more formidable in combat.
Penacony Land of the Dreams:
2-Piece Set Bonus: Increases the wearer's Energy Regeneration Rate by 5%.
Additional Bonus: Increases DMG for all other allies with the same damage type as the wearer by 10%.
The Penacony Land of the Dreams set is ideal for support-type characters, as it not only boosts their Energy Regeneration Rate but also enhances the DMG of other allies who share the same damage type. Any buffer or debuffer in a mono-elemental team can make excellent use of this Planar Ornament, contributing to the overall team's effectiveness.
