Huohuo, Argenti, and Hanya join the party
The biggest highlight of Honkai: Star Rail version 1.5 is, of course, the three new playable characters! Huohuo and Argenti will be the game's newest pair of 5-star characters while Hanya will have a 4-star rarity.
Huohuo will be the featured 5-star in the first half of the upcoming version while Argenti will take the spotlight in the second alongside Hanya's debut. Here's what we know about them so far!
Huohuo is a green-haired Foxian girl from the Xianzhou Luofu who is a Ten-Lords Commission Judge-in-training, described as "pitiable and helpless" because she fears the very ghosts she is tasked to catch and exorcise.
Huohuo wields the Wind element and follows the Path of Abundance, able to heal her allies with her skill as well as regenerating energy for them and increasing their ATK with her ultimate.
Argenti is a noble and dashing man with flaming red hair, as one would expect from a member of the Knights of Beauty, the followers of Idrila the vanished Aeon of Beauty.
He wields the Physical element and follows the Path of Erudition, specialising in dealing area-of-effect damage. Not only does his skill hit all enemies in the field, Argenti's ultimate also has two modes that unleash stronger attacks the more energy is consumed.
To feed his high energy requirements, Argenti can use his Talent to regenerate energy and increase his Crit Rate the more enemies he attacks.
Hanya is one of the judges of the Xianzhou Luofu's Ten-Lords Commission, tasked with reading the karma and sins of criminals, and records their crimes and punishments with the Oracle Brush. She wields the Physical element and follows the Path of Harmony, specialising in proving a variety of buffs to other party members in battle.
Hanya can inflict the Burden debuff on an enemy with her skill, increasing damage dealt by all allies on the target and restoring Skill Points with every attack. As if that wasn't enough, she can also increase the ATK and Speed of a single ally.
New spooky Xianzou Luofu location
Honkai: Star Rail version 1.5 also expands the world of the Xianzhou Luofu with the new Fyxestroll Garden location, a delve overrun by malevolent entities called Heliobi that can inhabit individuals, manipulate their senses, and control their souls and even their bodies.
Events and quests
This new area will host the main event for the upcoming version, where the Trailblazer will team up with Guinaifen, Sushang, and Huohuo (alongside some assistance from the sisters Hanya and Xueyi) to uncover the mysteries of Fyxestroll Garden and its resident Heliobi.
Other events in this version include the Boulder Town Martial Exhibition, Stellar Shadowseeker, as well as reruns for the Planar Fissure and Garden of Plenty events.
There will also be two new quests, namely the Trailblaze Continuance - A Foxian Tale of the Haunted and Argenti's Companion Mission - Night of Universal Hallucinations.
There will also be an update to the Simulated Universe, which now has an eighth world with two new Planar Ornament relics available to farm. A couple new Cavern of Corrosion relics have been added too.
Honkai: Star Rail version 1.5 is scheduled to be released on 15 November. For more information on what's to come in the upcoming version, check out the full preview livestream here.
But while we wait for version 1.5 to be released, the game is still in the second half of version 1.4, featuring the debuts of the 5-star Fire Hunt character Topaz and the 4-star Fire Nihility character Guinaifen.
After version 1.5 comes version 1.6, which will see the release of three more new characters in Ruan Mei, Dr. Ratio, and Xueyi in December.
