Tingyun Build and Team in Honkai Star Rail


Tingyun is one of the few support characters available in Honkai Star Rail at the moment.

Similar to Asta, she primarily focuses on providing buffs, but the difference is that the buffs she provides are more tailored to a single character. This makes her quite popular in teams that revolve around a single carry or DPS character (hypercarry team).

Apart from her strength, like many support characters, building Tingyun is not difficult to achieve. Even with a budget-friendly build, she can already offer significant contributions.

Best Relic and Planar Ornaments

Since her role revolves around providing buffs through her Skill and Ultimate, Tingyun only requires Attack for stronger buff effects, along with Speed to ensure she consistently goes first and can grant buffs before other characters attack.

Fortunately, one of the most common Relics is already well-suited for these needs: Musketeer of Wild Wheat. If you are diligently doing 3 weekly boss, I’m sure you already have this relic in your inventory.

4 Musketeer of Wild Wheat(2) ATK increases by 12%.
(4) The wearer’s SPD increases by 6% and Basic ATK DMG increases by 10%.

For planar ornament you can use either Fleet of the Ageless or Space Sealing Station, both from Herta Simulated Universe, World 3.

Fleet of the Ageless(2) Increases the wearer’s Max HP by 12%. When the wearer’s SPD reaches 120 or higher, all allies’ ATK increases by 8%.
Space Sealing Station(2) Increases the wearer’s ATK by 12%. When the wearer’s SPD reaches 120 or higher, the wearer’s ATK increases by an extra 12%.

Team for Tingyun?

Since Tingyun can only provide buffs to one character, it’s best to play her in a team that relies on a single carry or DPS character (hypercarry).

The choice of DPS character depends on your preference, whether it’s hypercarry Jing Yuan, Clara, or Seele. Honestly it’s recommended to bring tank and healer with Tingyun because somehow she’s always targeted by enemy first.

How to use Tingyun?

During battles, Tingyun should always use her Skill on the DPS character. After that, she can and should attack enemies in two turns.

This is because Tingyun has a passive that adds extra damage to her attacks after granting buffs to other characters. After two turns, refresh the same DPS character’s buff since the duration will expire.

For the Ultimate, use it as often as possible, especially if your DPS character’s Ultimate isn’t ready yet. Even if it is ready, you can have the DPS character use their Ultimate, then have Tingyun use her Ultimate to provide the DPS character with additional energy for their next Ultimate.
