Why should you pull for Jingliu

Perfect Synergy with Blade

Jingliu’s unique ability to enter the ‘Transcendence’ state with her ‘Crescent Transmigration’ talent makes her an ideal choice for a team with Blade.

This synergy can lead to devastating combos and sustained performance in battles.

Impressive Damage Output

Jingliu is no slouch when it comes to dealing with damage. Her Ice-based attacks, especially her ultimate ‘Precipitous Blossoms, Fleeting as Stellar Dreams,’ can hit hard and cover a wide area, making her an effective damage dealer in various situations. Her ability to accumulate ‘Moonlight’ or ‘New Moon’ stacks further enhances her damage potential, allowing her to consistently deal significant damage over time.

Meta Relevance

Jingliu’s versatility and unique mechanics have earned her a place in the current meta of Honkai: Star Rail. Her ‘Transcendence’ state and the ability to switch between ‘Moonlight’ and ‘New Moon’ give her adaptability, allowing her to fit into a variety of team compositions. In the ever-evolving landscape of the game, having a character like Jingliu with both sustainability and damage potential is crucial for success.
