A Honkai: Star Rail leak is making the rounds online, providing details about Gallagher’s skill set. Honkai: Star Rail‘s Gallagher has been revealed as a version 2.1 character who will debut in the game later next month. Version 2.1 was meant to arrive this week; however, it has been delayed by a week due to the Chinese New Year. When the update comes out, players will be rewarded with Stellar Jades.
As revealed through his drip marketing campaign, Gallagher will join the roster of four-star characters in Honkai: Star Rail in version 2.1. He commands the Fire element and belongs to the Abundance Path, with the developers teasing that the upcoming unit is best suited in a supportive role for his team. Besides, it has been revealed through leaks that Gallagher specializes in debuffing enemies and healing allies. He allegedly enhances his normal attack and breaks enemy weakness, which is the most a support unit can do anyway.
Honkai: Star Rail Releases Big New Update
HoYoverse releases a massive Honkai: Star Rail update that introduces three new characters and multiple additional areas, among many other novelties.
A reputed leaker within the Honkai: Star Rail community, HomDGCat, has leaked new details about Gallagher’s skill set, revealing that the character decreases enemy ATK and deals Fire damage using his Enhanced Basic ATK. He not only heals HP for allies but also inflicts Mark on targets that remain a couple of turns. Gallagher dishes out increased Break DMG to enemies with Mark and restores a percentage of his HP. As for the character’s Technique, it also inflicts the aforementioned effect on all targets and deals Fire damage based on ATK.

- Path: Abundance
- Skill: Heals an amount of HP for all teammates.
- Ultimate: Dishes out AoE Fire damage and inflicts Mark on all targets.
- Talent: Deals increased Break DMG to enemies with Mark.

Honkai: Star Rail‘s Gallagher utilizes a trio of traces that enhance his defensive capabilities. One increases the character’s healing bonus, while the other allows him to heal all teammates when he deals damage to enemies with Mark by using Enhanced Basic ATK. His Eidolons, on the other hand, boost Gallagher’s Break Effect, expand the duration of the Mark effect, and increase the Break DMG.
Given that Gallagher is a four-star unit, he will probably be featured in a five-star character’s debut banner in Honkai: Star Rail version 2.1. According to the leaks, this top-tier character will either be the Nihility-based Acheron or the Imaginary-type Aventurine.
Besides Gallagher, Acheron, and Aventurine, Honkai: Star Rail update 2.1 will offer players rerun banners of their favorite units. There is a likelihood that Sam will make his playable debut in the upcoming version. No details have been confirmed as yet, but reliable leakers claim the five-star unit will arrive sooner than expected.
