Stellar Warp Honkai Star Rail

When you wish on the Stellar Warp, every 10 Warps guarantees at-least one 4-Star item or above. This includes any of the characters, or Light Cones mentioned above.

This permanent warp banner is always available to players regardless of the limited-time event warp banners.

It also uses the basic Star Rail Pass to Warp. This means it doesn’t affect your Star Rail Special Passes inventory.

There are plenty of ways to stack the odds in your favor to ensure you roll for the character that you want.

How to Get Free 5-Star Character

The first time players roll 300 Warps on the Stellar Warp (Standard Banner), players will have the opportunity to pick from one of the 5-Star Characters on the banner.

This will only work once per account, so make sure you are confident about the character you want to pick before you make your decision!

Departure Warp – Guaranteed 5-Star Character

The Departure Warp is one of the permanent banners in Honkai Star Rail where each set of 10 Warps has a discount of 20%. But players can only pull a total of 50 times from this banner.

Within these 50 Pulls, players are guaranteed a 5-Star character. This is why the Departure Warp is referred to as the Beginner Banner since it gives players a 5-Star character early on.

If you don’t roll the character you want then players have devised a method to take advantage of the Departure Warp until you reroll your desired team.

Honkai Star Rail Departure Warp

Players will only need a total of 40 Star Rail Passes to reach the 50-pull limit. We recommend using the free passes given during the pre-registration rewards to help you reach this limit quickly.
