Here is how you can get your free copy of Dr. Ratio in Honkai Star Rail from patch 1.6 to 2.1.
He will arrive in the second half of patch 1.6 and will be redeemable via mail.
He is a strong Imaginary DPS and worth investing resources into if you do not have Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae.

Hoyoverse hosted its livestream for Honkai Star Rail’s patch 1.6 on 15th December 2023 and things were going smoothly until Dr. Ratio’s voice actor showed up and dropped a bombshell of an announcement. In addition to all of the new content and quality of life changes, players will also receive a free copy of the 4-star Quantum Abundance character ‘Lynx’ and a copy of Dr. Ratio, a limited 5-star Imaginary Hunt character. 

As expected, the game started trending on social media platforms and many new and returning players are interested in the game. If you are wondering how to get your free copy of Dr. Ratio in Honkai Star Rail, here’s what you need to do.

When Will Dr. Ratio Be Given Out For Free in Honkai Star Rail? 

Dr. Ratio’s banner “Panta Rhei” will be available on 15th January (Asia server) and that is when the new character will be given out to all players. Even if you do not play during version 1.6, you can still obtain the character. The offer will be available from 15th January to the end of version 2.1 (late April).
