First things first, let’s take a look at an overview of Himeko. She is one of the best five-star characters in Honkai Star Rail of the Fire element and belongs to the Erudition Path

  • As she belongs to the Erudition Path, she can carry out insane amounts of Multi-target damage and insanely good AoE damage that can shred opponents to pieces and not let any be left.

  • As an AoE DPS, she is ranked as an S-tiered character in Honkai Star Rail, which makes her a must-have in your Himeko Team. 
  • She can support your journey in progressing through the main content in Honkai Star Rail, which includes that of the main plot, as well as more difficult content such as the Simulated Universe or even the Forgotten Halls and the Memory of Chaos. 
  • She can handle larger groups of enemies since her multi-targeting allows her to hit more than one enemy at once, allowing her to dominate them. 

Best Light Cones 

Moving on, the next thing that needs to be discussed is Himeko’s Best Light Cones, which includes the following options:

  • Night On The Milky Way 
  • Before Dawn 
  • Today Is Another Peaceful Day 
  • The Seriousness Of Breakfast 
  • Geniuses’ Repose
  • The Birth Of The Self

First, one of her best Lightcones is her best in the slot, the Night On The Milky Way. 

  • It is a five-star Lightcone that is specifically made for Himeko, and can be bought from the Store for Embers and can be warped too. 
  • With its ability, for every opponent on the field, it can increase the wearer’s overall attack by 9%, with up to five stacks. 
  • Other than that, whenever an opponent has been inflicted with a Weakness Break, the wearer’s damage gets bumped up by 30% for one turn.

  • Anytime you use your skill or ultimate, you get Somnus Corpus, with which, after using a follow-up attack, the Somnus Corpus gets consumed, and the follow-up attack damage output gets buffed up by 48%.

  • The 2 piece set enhances the fire damage by 10%. 
  • The four-piece set increases the overall skill’s damage by 12%, and after the ultimate is used, it increases the fire damage by 12% for the next attack.

  • The 2 piece set offers an increase of 12% to the attack. 
  • The 4-piece set increases the speed by 6% while the basic attack damage increases by 10%. 

Space Sealing Station

Another ornament set that can be used for Himeko is the Space Sealing Station, which can be acquired from the Simulated Universe World 3. 

  • The 2 piece set increases the overall attack by 12%, and whenever the speed crosses 120 or more, the attack gets enhanced by a further 12%.

Lastly, the Inert Salsotto ornament set can be acquired using the Simulated Universe World 6. 

  • The 2-piece set offers an increase in the crit rate by 8%, and if the crit hit rate reaches 50% or more, then the ultimate and follow-up attack damage gets increased by another 50%. 


Traces (Image Credits Exputer)

Moving on, the next thing that can be looked at are the Traces for Himeko, which includes her techniques, basic attacks, skills, and her Ult. 

  • Incomplete Combustion (Technique): After using the technique, it creates a dimension that will last for 15 seconds, and after entering combat, there is a 100% chance to enhance the fire damage that is dealt to enemies by 10% for a total of 2 turns. 
  • Sawblade Tuning (Basic Attack): Himeko can deal fire damage equal to 50% of her base attack to one opponent. 
  • Molten Detonation (Skill): She can deal fire damage equal to 100% of her base attack to one enemy and deal fire damage equal to 40% to enemies that are close by. 
  • Heavenly Flare (Ultimate): Fire damage equivalent to 138% of her base attack is dealt to all opponents, and she also regenerates 5 energy for every opponent she kills. 
  • Victory Rush (Talent): If an enemy gets affected by the Weakness Break, she gains one charge point. If she is fully charged, anytime an ally carries out an attack, Himeko will perform a follow-up attack and make enemies take in fire damage equal to 70% of her base attack. 

Her minor traces are listed below: 

  • Starfire: After using an attack, there will be a 50% base chance that she can inflict Burn on her opponents for two turns, and whenever the enemies are inflicted with Burn, they take Fire DoT. 
  • Magma: Her skill can deal 20% more damage to opponents inflicted with Burn. 
  • Benchmark: If her HP is more than or equal to 80%, her crit rate increases by 50%. 

Team Comps 

Moving on, quite a few Himeko Team Comps can work with her, and since she is a multi-target DPS, she needs characters that will increase her overall damage output and ones that can buff her. 

Team Comps        
1 Himeko  Pela  Bronya  Bailu
2 Himeko  Hook  Natasha  Pela 
3 Himeko  Asta Serval  Natasha 
4 Himeko  Bronya  Tingyun  Bailu 
5 Himeko  Asta  Hook  Fire MC


Eidolons (Image Credits Exputer)

Last but not least, while getting Eidolons can get extremely expensive, for whoever can whale out and wants to get Himeko Eidolons, the best Eidolons to go for are her E1 and E2. 

  • E1: After using Victory Rush, her speed increases by 20% for two turns. 
  • E2: She can deal 15% more damage than opponents whose HP percentage is less than or equal to 50%. 
  • E3: Her skill level gets increased by 2 and goes to a max of level 15, while her basic attack gets increased by 1. 
  • E4: Anytime her skill inflicts Weakness Break on an opponent, she gets one additional charge stack. 
  • E5: Her ultimate skill increases by 2, and her talent level bumps by 2.
