- Honkai: Star Rail update 2.0 leak reveals Jing Yuan rerun and the addition of Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae as a rerun banner, which fits thematically with the upcoming Chinese New Year celebration.
- Warp events in Honkai: Star Rail allow players to have an increased chance of obtaining top-tier units and their signature weapons compared to the permanent banner, making them important for building versatile teams for endgame content.
- Limited-time events are not the only way to unlock banners in Honkai: Star Rail; Trailblazers can progress through the story and open chests to obtain free units.
A recent Honkai Star Rail leak has revealed that Jing Yuan will receive a rerun in the first phase of version 2.0. Over the past few days, details surrounding update 2.0 have leaked online, suggesting that Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae will be added as a rerun banner. Since Honkai: Star Rail fans will celebrate the Chinese New Year, titled Year of the Wooden Dragon, in the upcoming update, they think Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae is thematically fitting.
Honkai: Star Rail usually brings at least two warp events in every update, allowing players to wish for new characters and reruns. In comparison to the permanent banner, warp events give them an increased chance to get top-tier units and their signature weapons. There is an ever-changing pool of characters, with which players can build versatile teams for the game’s endgame content. It’s worth noting that these limited-time events aren’t the only way to unlock banners, as Trailblazers can progress through the story and open as many chests as possible for free units.
Honkai: Star Rail Leak Shows Gameplay for Version 2.0 Boss
A recent Honkai: Star Rail leak shows gameplay for one of the new enemies that will arrive in the game in version 2.0 next month.
According to a new Honkai: Star Rail leak from the Tieba forum, version 2.0 will offer Jing Yuan’s rerun banner in the first phase. He will allegedly be featured in a warp event alongside the Penacony-based unit Black Swan. The leak also claims the second part of 2.0 will include a pair of five-star characters, Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae and Sparkle. It’s essential to note that Honkai: Star Rail players should take this information with a pinch of salt until HoYoverse confirms the banner order.
The leak from the Tieba forum suggests that Honkai: Star Rail‘s Aventurine and Sam will appear in version 2.1, which is scheduled to be released later in March. However, there is still a chance that they will have their own banner in the upcoming update.
Jing Yuan is a five-star Lightning character whose skill set focuses on building up stacks and performing follow-up attacks. He delivers a great deal of multi-target AoE damage, but his kit doesn’t feature defensive abilities, meaning players better use him with support units. As for Jing Yuan’s Eidolons, they provide energy regeneration, make the enemy vulnerable, and increase the character’s overall damage significantly.
Once the special program for Honkai: Star Rail‘s update 2.0 is released on January 26, players will learn every detail about the upcoming content, including characters and events. As usual, they will redeem gift codes, which provide a certain amount of Stellar Jades, by simply watching the live stream. After the release of 2.0 in February, players will also likely receive compensation rewards for the server downtime.
