Honkai Star Rail Gallagher Gameplay

The best Light Cone for Gallagher is the 5-star Light Cone Night of Fright. Other viable Light Cones include Echoes in the Coffin and Perfect Timing. For F2P players, you can use Quid Pro Quo or Multiplication.

I recommend equipping the Thief of Shooting Meteor set on Gallagher to increase his Break Effect. Another possible combination is a two-piece Thief of Shooting Meteor with a two-piece Watchmaker, Master of Dream Machinations. The two sets can boost his Break Effect efficiency, making him a master at breaking enemies’ Toughness bar. 

You can give the Talia: Kingdom of Banditry set for Planar Ornaments to Gallagher. This gear can boost his Break Effect, increasing his healing output from his Talent.

When upgrading Gallagher’s Traces, you should focus on his Talent to boost the Break DMG taken by enemies and increase his healing output. Then, you can also level up his Skill to increase his manual healing power. Lastly, you can upgrade his Ultimate and Basic Attack for extra damage. 

If you plan to get copies of Gallagher, you should aim to unlock his E2, Lion’s Tail. This Eidolon grants him Cleanse ability and gives Effect RES buff to the target ally for two turns.

That’s everything you need to know on how to build Gallagher. For more HSR content, check out our guide on the best build for Acheron.
