Honkai Star Rail 2.2 Banners

The banners for Honkai Star Rail's 2.2 patch will feature Robin, a 5-star Harmony character and Boothill a 5-star Hunt character. They'll be featured alongside reruns of Topaz and Fu Xuan respectively together with their own corresponding Lightcones.

Robin and Topaz will run from May 7, 2024, to May 29, 2024, while Boothill and Fu Xuan will have their banners up from May 29, 2024, to June 18, 2024.

Honkai Star Rail 2.2 Harmony Form

During the event, we've also been teased numerous times that the Trailblazer, the player character will receive an all-new form for the player to upgrade and level up. The Harmony Form allows the player to switch from Damage Dealer or Tank to a dedicated healer/support character.

As of writing, we don't know what element or abilities the Trailblazer will pick up, but we'll learn it the day of the release of “The Foll Always Rings Twice” which might be the final chapter in the Penacony saga.
