When you start playing Honkai Star Rail, you will receive three free units you can use to build your first team. Among them is Dan Heng, the quiet but powerful protector of the Astral Express. If you want to know how to build him, this guide can explain the best gear you can give to this main DPS!
Honkai Star Rail Best Dan Heng Build
Besides obtaining him for free during the Eye of the Storm Trailblaze Mission, you can also get Dan Heng from all available banners in HSR. He is a main DPS who follows the Path of The Hunt and has a Wind element. While he is not as strong as a five-star unit, Dan Heng can carry you through all the main missions.
- Light Cone: In the Night
- Relics: Eagle of Twilight Line
- Body: CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG
- Feet: SPD
- Planar Ornaments: Space Sealing Station
- Sphere: Wind DMG
- Rope: ATK%
- Trace Priority: Skill > Ultimate > Talent > Basic Attack
- Eidolons: E4
The best Light Cone for Dan Heng is Seele’s signature Light Cone, In the Night, which can boost his CRIT Rate by 18 percent. This gear can even buff his Basic ATK, Skill, and CRIT DMG of her Ultimate if his speed reaches 100 points or higher.
For Relics, you should equip the Eagle of Twilight Line because it can increase his Wind DMG by 10 percent. If you equip four pieces, he can receive Advanced Forward buff whenever he uses his Ultimate.
The best Planar Ornaments for Dan Heng is the Space Sealing Station set, which can increase his ATK. If you can get his SPD over 120, he will get another stack of ATK buff.
The best Traces to upgrade first are Dan Heng’s Skill and Ultimate so you can boost his maximum DMG. After that, you can level up his Talent, which lets him ignore an enemy’s Wind RES if an ally casts a Skill on him. While his Basic Attack will be your last priority, you should still upgrade it since he is a main DPS.
For Eidolons, it would be best if you could unlock his E4, Roaring Dragon and Soaring Sun. This Eidolon lets Dan Heng take action immediately after he defeats an enemy using his Ultimate.
