It’s a tool that lets players design, track and maximize their character’s level and stats. As the name suggests, this tool helps you to plan and execute that plan to optimize your gameplay by managing your resources efficiently with the help of this planner tool.

The Ascensional Planner also gives you updates on what materials and resources players have at present and the ones they still need to progress. This information is essential for players when they seek to specify their exact goals and gauge their progress over time.  

The Character Levels

Each Character has a level starting from 1 and going up to 80, which is the maximum level. As the character levels up, the stats and strength of the character increase. To ascend your character to the next level, the player needs to have certain level milestones. Characters have a base max Level of 20. 

You should also know that even if you have all the resources, you can only go past a certain level if your account has an appropriate Trailblaze level. Therefore, you must note your Trailblaze Level before pushing your character to upgrade.

How To Find The Resources And Material

Using the Ascension Planner to enhance your character stats will result in their improved combat capabilities quickly, letting you over through a brutal enemy easily and efficiently. Here are some of the ways to grow stronger in Honkai: Star Rail  

Unlocking The Traces

Traces help characters to upgrade their skills. Traces are an upgrade tree for enhancing the skill level. Each character has his tree. There are various nodes in this tree that players need to unlock. Traces grant characters with stat bonuses, extra passive abilities, and skill enhancements.

Using Eidolons

Eidolons are called successive upgrades to Characters. They enhance the character’s abilities as every character contains a total of 6 Eidolons. The 3rd and 5th Eidolons provide a 3-level increase in skills. Eidolons offer characters with new passive bonuses. You can use Eidolons through Warps (the system). They can also be gained via gameplay through in-game missions and events.

Equipping Light Cones

Light Cones help boost a character’s Base HP, Base ATK, and Base DEF. They are equipable items that give a passive ability to characters whose tracks correspond to that of the Light Cone. They are obtained through quests, reward milestones, and Warps.

Equipping Relics

This game has a relic system that offers buffs to the characters that help them survive longer in this action-packed game. They are one of the ways to boost the stats of the player’s characters.

They are divided into 2-piece and 4-piece sets.  There are a total of six relics that players can equip their character with. They increase a character’s stats ranging from HP to ATK to Speed. Here’s the guide on equipping the best Light Cones and the best Relics to enhance your characters’ stats.

With this, I conclude my Ascension Planner guide. This is a perfect tool to enhance your character’s abilities. The planner helps you fully optimize your gameplay in Honkai Star Rail by helping you manage your resources efficiently and track your character’s progress.
