Honkai Star Rail combat system might seem simple to many gamers but believe me, it is not. The turn-based combat system in Honkai Star Rail could seem simple, but in reality, it required me to pay more attention to team comps, each character’s stats, and how to implement the strategies in the battle. With that said, there is a unique stat known as Effect Hit Rate, which is used in combat. This stat is not so simple to understand, so I decided to make a detailed guide on Honkai Star Rail Effect Hit Rate.
Before understanding what Effect Hit Rate does, you should know what Nihility Path is, as I did the same. You might already know that only characters of Nihiity Path can debuff enemies. While the characters of Nihility Path can debuff enemies, the chance of it happening is not that much high. The debuffs can reduce the enemy’s Resistance, Speed and can apply some other effects.
As you can see above, Welt’s Skill can debuff enemies, and it has 61% to apply the debuff. The debuff would target the target’s SPD for 15% for 2 turns.
Effect Hit Rate
With debuffs, I was able to win more quickly, but the chance to apply debuff was low. But that’s when Effect Hit Rate comes in. This effect is a stat that increased my character’s chance to debuff the enemy, which allowed me to defeat the enemy even faster.
Most skills have a low base chance to apply a debuff on the enemy, so that is why you would need to focus more on increasing the character’s Effect Hit Rate. I used Light Cone and Relics to increase my character’s Effect Hit Rate so they were able to apply debuff more often. With that said, a 100% Effect Hit Rate doesn’t necessarily mean your character will apply a debuff to the enemy.
You should keep in mind that all enemies have a 20% effect RES against an element they are not weak to. If your Ice character with a 100% Effect Hit rate is applying debuffs to the enemies strong against Ice, then they are not guaranteed to apply the debuffs. So this could reduce the consistency of your characters to apply debuffs more often, which could be a disadvantage for you.
However, I found a solution to this as I increased the Effect Hit Rate even more than 100%, which guaranteed my characters to debuff the enemies. But you should consider making a balanced build and not focus too much on the effect hit rate.
Effect Hit Rate Vs. Crit Rate – What Is The Difference?
Effect Hit rate and Crit Rate are two absolutely different things. Effect Hit Rate, as discussed earlier, debuffs the enemies and gives you the opportunity to take advantage of the combat. Meanwhile, Crit Rate allows you to land some significant big hits to the enemies based on your Crit DMG.
That’s almost everything you would want to know about Honkai Star Rail Hit Effect Rate. While it is important for a character to debuff consistently, you should also manage other stats too. While you are in it, check out the guide on Best DPS Characters in Honkai Star Rail and learn about their pros and cons. Moreover, check the light cones guide, as it helps with debuffing too.
Also, don’t forget to check out the best team composition guide, as there you will get to know the best team comps that will help you win battles. With that said, hopefully, you will have a fun time playing Honkai Star Rail while debuffing the enemies using the Effect Hit Rate.
