The Fire Trailblazer in Honkai: Star Rail truly begins to show the capabilities of the MC when players use the right build.
Fleshing out your team with powerful characters is one of the most important aspects of HSR. Each character has powerful skills, but when players unlock Eidolons for them, they can truly ascend to new heights.
With most characters you need to test your luck to obtain their most powerful form, but with the Trailblazer (Fire), players can obtain all the right tools by simply playing the story.
Best Trailblazer (Fire) Light Cones & Relics
The best Fire Trailblazer Light Cone is the Texture of Memories because it gives the character a shield when attacked and boosts their defenses.
But before you start to build the Trailblazer (Fire), you’ll need to unlock them through the main story missions.
|Texture of Memories||The Preservation||★★★★★||Increases the wearer's Effect RES by 8/10/12/14/16%. If the wearer is attacked and has no Shield, they gain a Shield equal to 16/20/24/28/32% of their Max HP for 2 turn(s). This effect can only be triggered once every 3 turn(s). If the wearer has a Shield when attacked, the DMG they receive decreases by 12/15/18/21/24%.|
When it comes to Light Cones, the best option is something that can improve the Trailblazer’s defensive nature. The higher your DEF stat, then the more powerful your shields.
The Trailblazer (Fire) will gain Magma Will stacks with every hit they tank. You need more than four stacks of Magma Will to truly begin to use this characters best abilities.
This is why a Light Cone that raises your defense is invaluable in a Tank like the Fire Trailblazer.
“A Moment of Victory” is a great Light Cone because it increases your defenses and the chance that enemies will target you.
|Moment of Victory||The Preservation||★★★★★||Increases the wearer's DEF by 24%/30%/36%/42%/48% and Effect Hit Rate by 20%/25%/30%/35%/40% when attacking. Increases chance to be attacked by enemies. When the wearer is attacked, increases DEF by an extra 24%/30%/36%/42%/48% until the end of the wearer's turn.|
The Trailblazer (Fire) is already one of the most powerful characters in the Honkai Star Rail Tier List, but with the right Light Cone, they can turn even deadlier.
The “Day One of My New Life” Light Cone is also a good option because it allows you to protect your allies more effectively.
|Day One of My New Life||The Preservation||★★★★||Increases wearer's DEF by 16%/18%/20%/22%/24% and increases DMG RES of all allies by 8%/9%/10%/11%/12%. Effects of the same type cannot stack.|
For players that aren’t looking to spend money on warps, the Amber Light Cone is a fantastic option that increases the wearer’s overall DEF and provides an added boost when they are low on health.
|Amber||The Preservation||★★★||Increases DEF of its wearer by 16%/20%/24%/28%/32%. If current HP of its wearer is less than 50% of Max HP, increases DEF by an extra 16%/20%/24%/28%/32%..|
If you don’t have any of these then there are plenty of ways to of obtaining these Light Cones in-game without needing to spend money.
Trailblazer (Fire) Relic Guide
The best Relic to use with the Fire Trailblazer is the Knight of Purity Palace Set and the Belebog of the Architects Set.
These Relics will help improve the DEF stat and allow the Trailblazer to tank a lot more damage for the team. This will allow your Main DPS to stay relatively safe and focus on maximizing their attack.
|Image||Relic||Set Items Needed||4 Set Bonus||2 Set Bonus||Where to Obtain|
|Knights of Purity Palace Set||4||Increases the max DMG that can be absorbed by the shield created by the wearer by 20%.||Increases DEF by 12%.||Cavern of Corrosion, Weekly Bosses, or Relic Synthesize.|
|Belobog of the Architects||2||Not Used||Increases the wearer’s DEF by 15%. When the wearer’s Effect Hit Rate is 50% or higher, the wearer also gains an extra 15% DEF.||Cavern of Corrosion, Weekly Bosses, or Relic Synthesize.|
Thankfully, obtaining Relics is relatively easy and will not require you to use Warps unlike characters and Light Cones.
Trailblazer (Fire) Team Guide
The best Fire Trailblazer team in Honkai Star Rail uses powerful DPS characters like Dan Heng and Serval to dish out damage while Natasha keeps them all in full health.
|Dan Heng (The Hunt)||Wind||Main DPS||As the Main DPS, Dan Heng will aid the team by bringing down powerful foes and using his Skill to reduce enemy SPD with every Critical Hit. His Ultimate damage increases when the target's SPD is lowered.|
|Natasha (The Abundance)||Physical||Healer||Natasha is a powerful healer that will ensure your Fire Trailblazer stays alive despite all of the hits they take due to their taunting ability. Her Ultimate is also a powerful healing skill that can bring your team back from the brink of defeat.|
|Trailblazer (The Preservation)||Fire||Tank||The Fire Trailblazer is a Tank that can taunt enemies and maintain their focus. They can use this to their advantage to build Magma Will stacks and unleash an enhanced version of their Basic Attack that does AoE damage.|
|Serval (The Erudition)||Lightning||Sub DPS||Serval is one of the best AoE damage dealers in the game, and can really chip away at enemies health with the Shock status effect. She rounds out the team nicely and provides a great deal of DPS.|
With this team comp you want the Trailblazer to take most of the hits. This will allow them to build Magma Will stacks easily and use more powerful abilities.
Thanks to Natasha, you won’t need to worry about losing health since she has great healing output. Dan Heng will be your primary damage dealer against powerful single targets.
Serval is one of the best AoE damage dealers and can take care of enemies using her Shock status effect.
Thankfully, all of these characters are relatively easy to come across in Honkai Star Rail.
