- Acheron, a new character in Honkai: Star Rail, complements Nihility units and has AoE attacks that ignore weakness types, increasing the team’s combat capacity.
- Acheron applies flowers to enemies, enabling her to perform double-hit attacks against enemies with the most flowers, and her damage increases with a Nihility-type unit in the party.
- Honkai: Star Rail’s upcoming version 2.0 will introduce the Clock Statue system, providing players with Stellar Jades and enhancement materials, as well as a limited-time event with a free four-star character.
A new Honkai: Star Rail leak gives players a glimpse into Acheron’s skill set. Joining the game’s roster in version 2.0 is Acheron, a Penacony-based unit who will receive her event banner soon. Though details regarding her gameplay and story have been scarce, several reputed leakers revealed that she works splendidly in teams that feature Nihility units. Besides, there has been speculation that Honkai: Star Rail‘s Acheron will share similarities with Honkai 3rd Impact‘s Raiden Mei and Genshin Impact‘s Raiden Shogun in terms of design and kit.
With the next major version of Honkai: Star Rail drawing closer, leaks about the upcoming content have appeared online, revealing that Trailblazers will get a reasonable amount of Stellar Jades through Penacony’s offering system called the Clock Statue. Besides in-game credits, this reward tree will give away various enhancement materials that are required to improve Light Cones and units. There will allegedly be a limited-time event in version 2.0, which gives players a free four-star character for tackling challenges.
Honkai: Star Rail Fans Think Penacony Character Will Join Astral Express
Honkai: Star Rail fans theorize that one of the new Penacony characters will permanently become part of the Astral Express crew.
A recent Honkai: Star Rail leak from Dimbreath has given an insight into Acheron’s kit, revealing that she launches different AoE attacks. The character performs a blast attack against adjacent enemies, reducing their damage for a couple of turns. During the duration of her ultimate, Acheron’s attacks ignore weakness types. Using a typical technique, she launches AoE attacks that increase the team’s combat capacity. Furthermore, the Nihility-based unit executes different attacks with her ultimate, dealing additional AoE damage to all enemies.
As per the leak, Acheron’s actions apply flowers to enemies on the field, and she can take advantage of them later in combat. The second phase of her ultimate allows the character to perform double-hit attacks against enemies with the most flowers. Besides, one of Acheron’s ascension levels increases the damage of all attacks if there is a Nihility-type unit in the party, meaning she can deliver much more damage when combined with Honkai: Star Rail’s Silver Wolf, Sampo, Welt, and Pela.
Once the Penacony world is released in version 2.0, Honkai: Star Rail players will be able to pull Acheron and some other characters, Sparkle and Misha, from the event banner. They will improve their party setup with a few reruns, including the five-star Imaginary unit Luocha. Besides an extensive roster of playable banners, Honkai: Star Rail will reportedly bring updates to the relic system, such as quick salvage and relic filter functions.
