A Honkai: Star Rail player has discovered a useful trick with five-star character Topaz in the Simulated Universe’s Adventure Domains. The popular sci-fi RPG from HoYoverse offers players a wide variety of ways to experience the game through its many different game modes. Aside from playing through the game’s story and exploring its worlds, Star Rail offers a plethora of game modes including the Forgotten Hall, the many event-related mini-games, and the upcoming “Pure Fiction” game mode. However, arguably the most popular of the game’s alternative challenges is the roguelike Simulated Universe.
First debuting with Honkai: Star Rail‘s launch, the Simulated Universe tasks players with progressing through its several different worlds, using unique buffs that change with each playthrough. The game mode has seen several updates since Star Rail‘s debut, adding new worlds to challenge and new Curios providing special bonuses. HoYoverse has even added several expansions to the Simulated Universe with Version 1.3’s “Swarm Disaster” and the recently released “Gold and Gears.” Now, one player has found a unique way to complete one of the Simulated Universe’s Adventure Domains.
Honkai: Star Rail Version 1.6 Reveals Updated Tools and Features
Honkai: Star Rail developer HoYoverse reveals several updates to existing tools and features that can help players complete content from Version 1.6.
Reddit user Cannabace shared the trick with a video posted to the Honkai: Star Rail subreddit, showing off Topaz’s excellent application in the “Trotter Catch” event. Topaz boasts an innate passive causing Warp Trotters not to flee from her initially, with her Technique sending out her Trotter companion Numby to find nearby Trotters. Topaz can use the combination of her passive and Technique to group up Warp Trotters within the Adventure Domain, allowing her to quickly dispatch several at a time and rack up a high score. Topaz would even receive minor changes in Version 1.6 to tone down the strategy’s effectiveness.
Topaz’s useful passive in Star Rail‘s Adventure Domain comes as Topaz has found a home in plenty of Star Rail team compositions. Topaz lends herself to being an excellent sub-DPS choice for many teams, gaining powerful follow-up attacks from her companion Numby. Topaz’s Skill also buffs her allies’ follow-up attacks, making her a powerful option in teams built around characters like Kafka and Jing Yuan. Topaz even features special bonuses for the Simulated Universe game mode, with Numby able to find bonus Cosmic Fragments and Curios.
Topaz’s focus on follow-up attacks also makes her an effective teammate for multiple Version 1.6 characters. New four-star unit Xueyi makes heavy use of follow-up attacks, with her stacking “Karma” mechanic providing her with a follow-up attack after reducing an enemy’s toughness eight times. Dr. Ratio also heavily utilizes follow-up attacks with his Talent, with players able to pick up a free copy of Dr. Ratio during his gacha banner. Topaz’s powerful follow-up attack gameplay and helpful applications in the Simulated Universe have made her a standout member of Honkai: Star Rail‘s roster
