Yanqing Build and Team in Honkai Star Rail


Yanqing is 5 star character with Ice element in Honkai Star Rail. He’s pretty good single target damage dealer, and with recent 1.3 update he’s been talked around the community again.

Not related to his gameplay though, but related to his appearance in the story. He keep challenging hero of Xianzhou Luofu left and right, starting from Jingliu in the previous patch, then try to take on both Blade and awakened Dan Heng (Imbibitor Lunae).

Of course he’s failed and since then so many memes about him popping up in the community. If we have Tartaglia as clown in Genshin Impact with him being tricked in Liyue story, now we have Yanqing as clown in Honkai Star Rail.

Relic and Planar Ornament

Yanqing is ice element user, so your first pick for relic will be 4 Hunter of Glacial Forest from Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Gelid Wind in Herta Space Station Storage Zone.

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

As alternative, you can mix 2 Glacial Forest with 2 Musketeer of Wild Wheat. Pick whichever have better stats.

2 Hunter of Glacial Forest + 2 Musketeer of Wild Wheat(2) Increases Ice DMG by 10%.
(2) ATK increases by 12%

For planar ornament, you can either go for Space Sealing Station from Herta Simulated Universe World 3:

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%.

or Inert Salsotto from Herta Simulated Universe World 6:

Team for Yanqing?

You can run Yanqing as usual hypercarry team with Bronya and Tingyun as buffer. Then you can put tank or healer in the last slot, I will use Bailu here in the last slot.

Hypercarry team with Tingyun and Bronya as buffer, healer/tank in last slot.

Best team if you have Silver Wolf in your account is running team with 3 ice element member.

Mono Ice team with SW as debuffer
