Highlights
Acheron has received massive buffs to her kit ahead of Honkai Star Rail's 2.1 beta.
She can now use her ultimate in three turns instead of having a five-turn rotation.

Acheron is one of the most enigmatic characters in Honkai: Star Rail's 2.0 update. She appeared during the Penacony Trailblaze quest and will make her debut as a playable character in 2.1. The beta for patch 2.1 will go live on 13th February but we already have an early look at her kit. Do note that she is likely to receive balance changes over the coming weeks before she is ready for release. Take all information below with a grain of salt and you should wait for the official patch 2.1 livestream to decide whether to go for her.
