Honkai Star Rail 1.4 Characters and Light Cones

Honkai Star Rail 1.4 will be bringing us two new banners, three new characters, the first HSR rerun banner, and even a new Ascension Material.

While the Trailblaze story doesn't seem to be expanding to another planet yet, there is going to be plenty to explore in the 1.4 update.


Honkai Star Rail 1.4 Characters


Honkai Star Rail Jingliu Team Guide | GenshinLab

Jingliu, the former Sword Champion of Luofu and the creator of the legendary tales of the Cloud Knights’ invincibility, now resides in the shadows of obscurity, branded as a traitor of Xianzhou. Once revered as the sword master of Xianzhou’s Luofu and mentor to Jing Yuan, Jingliu succumbed to the insidious influence of Mara, plunging into the abyss of madness until finally facing Jing Yuan in a battle that ended in her defeat. The Honkai Star Rail 1.4 update should give her a much needed in depth story.
