Best Light Cones For Herta

Herta is Ice damage dealer so you will need to go for relic and planar ornament that boost offensive stats. For this reason, Light Cone with offensive stats are recommended to use:

  • Before Dawn: Increases the wearer’s CRIT DMG by 36/42/48/54/60%. Increases the wearer’s Skill and Ultimate DMG by 18/21/24/27/30%. After the wearer uses their Skill or Ultimate, they gain Somnus Corpus. Upon triggering a follow-up attack, Somnus Corpus will be consumed and the follow-up attack DMG increases by 48/56/64/72/80%.
  • The Birth of the Self: Increases DMG dealt by the wearer’s follow-up attacks by 24/30/36/42/48%. If the current HP of the target enemy is below 50% of their Max HP, increases DMG dealt by follow-up attacks by an extra 24/30/36/42/48%.
  • Today is Another Peaceful Day: After entering battle, increases the wearer’s DMG based on their Max Energy. DMG increases by 0.2/0.25/0.3/0.35/0.4% per point of Energy, up to 160 Energy.
  • The Seriousness of Breakfast: Increases the wearer’s DMG by 12/15/18/21/24%. For every defeated enemy, the wearer’s ATK increases by 4/5/6/7/8%, stacking up to 3 time(s).
  • Geniuses Repose: Increases the wearer’s ATK by 16/20/24/28/32%. When the wearer defeats an enemy, the wearer’s CRIT DMG increases by 24/30/36/42/48% for 3 turn(s).

Relic and Planar Ornaments

When it comes to relic, your best choice will be Hunter of Glacial Forest from Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Gelid Wind in Herta Space Station Storage Zone.

Hunter of Glacial Forest(2) Increases Ice DMG by 10%.
(4) After the wearer uses their Ultimate, their CRIT DMG increases by 25% for 2 turn(s).

Pair it with Celestial Differentiator from Herta Simulated Universe, World 5 for it’s CRIT DMG and CRIT Rate increase.

Celestial Differentiator(2) Increases the wearer’s CRIT DMG by 16%. When the wearer’s current CRIT DMG reaches 120% or higher, after entering battle, the wearer’s CRIT Rate increases by 60% until the end of their first attack.

And finally, with following stats and substats:

Crit DMG = CRIT Rate > ATK% > Speed

Team for Herta

Herta is damage dealer, so as long as you have support like Tingyun and Bronya she will be able to dish good chunk of damage. As usual, you can play safe by bringing healer or tank, or maybe both.

Team with Herta as main DMG dealer

You might also want to try to put her into Mono Ice party with Silver Wolf as debuffer. I will just replace Pela (debuffer) with Herta since we already have Silver Wolf as main debuffer.
