Bailu in Honkai Star Rail is a five-star character who can heal your party and significantly boost the survivability of allies. However, to make the most of Bailu’s skills, you’ll need to build her properly with the best Relics, Light Cone, Planar Ornaments, and Traces listed in this Honkai Star Rail build guide.

Despite having a ton of similarities in character design, character-building, and UI, Honkai Star Rail and Genshin Impact have completely different combat systems. While Genshin Impact players have survived the toughest bosses by building damage dealers and ignoring healers, the same isn’t a wise strategy in Honkai Star Rail.

Survivability is a major element in Honkai Star Rail’s combat. Healers like Natasha and Bailu, and shielders like March 7th and Gepard are as important as explosive damage dealers like Seele and Clara.

On that note, let’s take a look at the best Relics, Planar Ornaments, and Light Cones that make Bailu one of the best healers in Honkai Star Rail.

Bailu’s abilities in Honkai Star Rail explained

Bailu belongs to the Lightning element and follows the path of Abundance. She has the following abilities in Honkai Star Rail:

  • Diagnostic Kick (basic attack) – Deals Lighting DMG to a single enemy equal to 50-130% of her attack.
  • Singing Among Clouds (skill) – Heals the selected ally based on Bailu’s max HP. Then, she heals random allies two times and the amount of HP restored is reduced by 15% after each healing.
  • Felicitous Thunderleap (ultimate) – All allies get healing based on Bailu’s max HP plus 40 to 461. She applies Invigoration to all allies that do not have it already. The Invigoration of characters who already had it before Bailu’s Ult is extended for 1 turn.
  • Gourdful of Elixir (Talent) – Invigorated allies restore HP based on Bailu’s max HP after getting hit. This effect takes place two times per battle. Also, allies do not get knocked down with a killing blow as Bailu immediately heals them based on 12-21% of her HP plus 120-615. The latter effect can be triggered once per battle.
  • Saunter in the Rain (Technique) – After using the Technique, all allies gain the Invigorated status at the start of the next battle.

Best Bailu Traces to upgrade in Honkai Star Rail

Bailu’s healing is what makes her so useful in Honkai Star Rail, so upgrading her Ultimate and skill should be your first priority. Thereafter, focus on upgrading Traces that buff her healing output, HP, and Energy Regen.

How to play Bailu in Honkai Star Rail

Make sure to use Bailu’s technique before heading into battle. This way, all allies should gain the Invigorated status that saves them from killing blows, grants them immediate heals upon getting hit, and reduces the damage they take.

Apart from this, you can use Bailu in Honkai Star Rail just like any other healer. Wait for the right time to use your skill and ultimate and make sure that the strongest characters in your team are under the effect of Invigoration.

Best Relics for Bailu in Honkai Star Rail

Passerby of Wandering Cloud

  • Two-piece bonus: Increases Healing by 10%.
  • Four-piece bonus: Immediately recovers 1 skill point at the start of the battle.

Healing is obviously ideal for Bailu and having that additional skill point in every battle will ensure that you have Bailu’s skill available most of the time. As of now, this is the only Relic set that is tailor-made for healers.

What Relics stats are best for Bailu in Honkai Star Rail

You should aim for these Relics stats while building Bailu in Honkai Star Rail:

  • Body: Outgoing Healing Boost
  • Feet: HP% or SPD (If you’re using Fleet of the Ageless)
  • Link Rope: HP% or Energy Regen

Best Planar Ornaments for Bailu in Honkai Star Rail

Fleet of the Ageless

This Planar Ornament increases Bailu’s max HP by 12%. Moreover, if her SPD reaches 120 or higher, all allies get an 8% ATK boost. Bailu’s healing is based on her max HP which is why the max HP buff is desirable.

On top of this, the ATK boost you get from this Ornament isn’t limited to turns. The ATK buff remains until the end of the battle which makes it outstanding.

Sprightly Vonwacq

The two-piece Sprightly Vonwacq set increases the wearer’s Energy Regen by 5%. When the wearer’s speed reaches 120 or higher, their action gets a 40% advancement boost immediately upon entering battle.

This Planar Ornament works great with Bailu because you’ll get her Ultimate more often which means more healing for your damage dealers and allies.

What Planar Ornament stats are best for Bailu in Honkai Star Rail

HP% or Energy Regen Rate should be the most important stats you can get for Bailu through Planar Ornaments in Honkai Star Rail. While HP% increases her healing output, Energy Regen ensures that her Ultimate becomes available as quickly as possible.

Best Light Cones for Bailu in Honkai Star Rail

Time Waits for No One

Time Waits for No One is the tailor-made five-star Light Cone for Bailu in Honkai Star Rail. It increases her HP by 18% and outgoing healing by 12% which is as brilliant as it sounds.

On top of this, this Light Cone records the healing granted by Bailu, and when she does an attack, a randomly attacked enemy takes additional DMG equal to 50% of the Outgoing Healing by Bailu.

Hence, if you aren’t satisfied with Bailu’s damage, using Time Waits for No One is the way to go.

Warmth Shortens Cold Nights

This four-star Light Cone is available in the Honkai Star Rail Battle Pass and it increases the wearer’s max HP by 16%. Moreover, using a skill or basic attack restores the HP of allies by 2% of their max HP.

As someone who needs HP and Healing, this Light Cone sits well with Bailu.

Post-op Conversation

Post-op Conversation is another brilliant four-star Light Cone that increases Bailu’s Energy Regen and Outgoing Healing. Both these stats are excellent for healers and Bailu is no exception.

Shared Feeling

Shared Feeling is a four-star Light Cone that increases Bailu’s Outgoing Healing and after she uses a skill, all allies regenerate Energy which is a useful buff for any character.


Cornucopia is a three-star F2P Light Cone that increases the Outgoing Healing of the wearer’s skill and Ultimate. Bailu uses both these abilities to heal allies which is why you can easily use this Light Cone. Having said that, you’ll obviously miss out on the better HP, ATK, and DEF base stats from five-star and four-star Light Cones.

Best teams for Bailu in Honkai Star Rail

Being a healer, Bailu is one of the most flexible characters in Honkai Star Rail who can be placed in literally any team. Every character in the game needs heals and Bailu excels in it.

Regardless, some characters can be paired with Bailu to make the perfect support combo. These include:

  • March 7th/Gepard – Shielders who can use the taunt mechanics and protect Bailu.
  • Clara – Tanky character who can save Bailu from taking a lot of damage.
  • Welt – Support character who can control enemy movement.

Apart from these support characters, you’ll only require a strong damage dealer like Yangquin, Dan Heng, or Seele to defeat enemies.

Are Bailu’s Eidolons worth it in Honkai Star Rail?

Bailu has the following Eidolons in Honkai Star Rail:

  • Eidolon 1 – If an ally has full HP after the end of Invigoration, they’ll gain 8 extra Energy.
  • Eidolon 2 – Bailu’s Outgoing Healing increases by 15% for 2 turns after using her Ultimate.
  • Eidolon 3 – Skill Lv. +2, up to a maximum of Lv. 15. Talent Lv. +2, up to a maximum of Lv. 15.
  • Eidolon 4 – Characters healed by Bailu deal 10% more DMG for 2 turns. The effect can stack up to 3 times.
  • Eidolon 5 – Ultimate Lv. +2, up to a maximum of Lv. 15. Basic ATK Lv. +1, up to a maximum of Lv. 10.
  • Eidolon 6 – Bailu can revive an ally twice in a single battle.

Bailu’s fourth Eidolon truly seems like a game-changer because it can change her role from a dedicated healer to a versatile support character. The sixth Eidolon can also come in handy but instead of spending money on banners, you can improve your defense and avoid getting knocked down frequently.
