Robin is the Honkai: Star Rail's third limited 5-star Harmony unit and she is set to arrive in patch 2.2.
Robin is expected to be the premier support option for follow-up teams moving forward.

Robin is a teamwide buffer who synergises well with follow-up units. Unlike traditional Harmony units like Sparkle and Bronya, Robin can buff the entire party. While her buffs are not as strong as single-target buffers, her teamwide buffs can add a lot of value to teams where multiple characters can dish out damage. She also has a teamwide action advance (100%) with her Ultimate, which can be very useful if you are trying to clear content as quickly as possible (Memory of Chaos). If you are wondering if you should pull Robin in Honkai: Star Rail patch 2.2, here's our quick analysis.

Honkai Star Rail 2.2: Robin's Kit Detailed

Robin is a 5-star Physical Harmony unit. She will be available in the first-half of patch 2.2.

Basic Attack

Wingflip White Noise - Deals Physical damage equal to 100% of Robin's attack to a single enemy.


Pinion's Aria - Increase damage dealt by all allies by 50%, lasting for three turns. This duration decreases by one at the start of Robin's turn


Vox Harmonique, Opus Cosmique - Robin enters the Concerto state, making all other allies immediately take action, and increases all allies' attack by 22.8% of Robin's attack plus 200. Also, after every attack by allies, Robin deals additional Physical damage equal to 120% of her attack one time. The Crit Rate for this damage is set at 100% and Crit Damage is set at 150%. When in the Concerto state, Robin is immune to Crowd Control debuffs and can't take a turn or action before the Concerto state ends. A Concerto countdown appears on the Action Order bar to track this. When the countdown's turn begins, Robin exits the Concerto state and immediately takes action. The countdown has its own fixed Speed of 90.


Tonal Resonance - Increases all allies' Crit Damage by 20%, and after allies attack enemy targets, Robin regenerates an additional 2 Energy for herself.


Overture of Inebriation - Robin creates a dimension that lasts for 15 seconds, and enemies within this dimension will not attack Robin, following her while the dimension is active. After entering battle with the dimension active, Robin regenerates an additional five Energy at the start of each wave. Only one dimension created by allies can exist at a time.

Bonus Trace 1

Coloratura Cadenza - When the battle begins, Robin's action is Advanced Forward by 25%.

Bonus Trace 2

Impromptu Flourish - While in the Concerto state, all allies' Crit Damage dealt when launching follow-up attacks increases by 25%.

Bonus Trace 3

Sequential Passage - When using her Skill, Robin regenerates an additional 5 Energy.

What Does Robin Offer to Your Account?

If you have any of the following characters at your disposal, you should consider pulling Robin.

  • Dr. Ratio (+Aventurine)

  • Clara

  • Topaz (+Aventurine)

  • Himeko and Herta

  • Jing Yuan

Do note that these characters are not the only ones who benefit from Robin. They just have the highest synergy with her since she boosts follow-up damage. She can get you a 50% Damage Bonus, over 20% ATK bonus, 20% Crit DMG and a teamwide action advance which is already great.

Follow-up units can help Robin regenerate her Ultimate faster as each attack generates 2 Energy for her and a team that spams follow-up attacks can help Robin get her Ultimate back on time. Follow-up attacks also gain an additional 25% Crit DMG from her kit.

She is an extremely powerful Harmony character who is worth your consideration even if you already have Ruan Mei. The 100% Action Advance and her high personal damage is going to add a lot of value to almost any team.

While follow-up attack teams featuring Dr. Ratio and Topaz or Himeko and Herta benefit the most from Robin, hypercarry units can also take advantage of Robin's kit. She is close to being a must-have unit and is definitely worth picking up if you can spare the Stellar Jade. She benefits a wide variety of teams and might be a meta staple character for a range of DPS units. She gets a strong recommendation from us.

At the end of the day, pull for characters you like and if you don't like Robin's playstyle or design, don't feel forced to get the character. Play the game however you like and spend your resources and money judiciously!
