New information from Honkai: Star Rail is teasing the gameplay for upcoming character Robin, suggesting she will join the game as a powerful support unit. With a roster boasting 40 different characters to choose from, the HoYoverse RPG offers a variety of different playstyles with many of its cast members. Between DPS characters like Seele and Argenti who excel at dealing high damage and tanks like Fu Xuan and Gepard focusing on keeping the team alive, players have plenty of options when building their teams. Now, an upcoming character looks to bring another powerful support unit to the game.
With the release of Honkai: Star Rail‘s Penacony on the horizon, leaks have shared plenty of details about the upcoming characters from the newest world. The three characters debuting with Version 2.0 have already seen leaks related to their kits, with Black Swan reportedly joining the game as a Wind DPS unit and Misha as an Ice damage dealer. New five-star character Sparkle even features a unique mechanic to raise her team’s Skill Point cap to seven. According to recent leaks, rumored character Robin is set to bring her own unique mechanic to Star Rail.
Honkai: Star Rail Leak Reveals Sparkle, Misha, and Black Swan Kit Details
A new Honkai: Star Rail leak provides many details about version 2.0 characters, giving players a general idea of their skills.
A new leak from prominent Honkai: Star Rail leaker Dimbreath has revealed the first details about how Robin will play within Honkai: Star Rail. Robin is reportedly set to join the game as a Support character, featuring a unique Ultimate that disables her own actions and powers up her teammates. Robin’s Ultimate lowers her own aggro and grants additional bonuses at higher Eidolon levels, with her turns during the “disabled” state advancing her teammates’ actions. Her Skill also provides a team-wide ATK% buff, while her Talent increases her teammates’ Crit Damage and Speed based on her own.
Robin’s rumored kit looks to see her slot into Honkai: Star Rail teams as a unique supportive option that de-emphasizes her own actions. Robin’s leaked abilities all seem to focus on the character taking an inactive role, self-healing when she is reduced to a certain HP threshold and gaining Energy when her teammates take their turns. Specific details on the buffs were not shared within the leak as the post suggests Robin is still in early development. A release date has not been confirmed for Robin’s addition to Honkai: Star Rail.
Robin looks to join a stacked lineup of support-oriented characters within Honkai: Star Rail across multiple different Paths. Version 1.6 saw the release of Ruan Mei as the game’s newest Harmony character, with her kit focusing around the Weakness Break mechanic. The previously mentioned Sparkle is also set to add another Support character to Star Rail‘s roster with her release during Version 2.0. Robin’s kit de-emphasizing her own gameplay will look to provide a uniquely powerful choice among Honkai: Star Rail‘s plethora of supports.
