Bronya Rand in Honkai Star Rail

Bronya is a powerful five-star character in Honkai Star Rail, so if you’re looking to add her to your team, here’s the best build you should use, along with the best Light Cone, Relics, and more.

Much like Genshin Impact, Honkai Star Rail lets players collect many powerful characters through the game’s gacha system. Unlocking different characters increases the chances of defeating powerful foes and getting better rewards, so it’s an essential part of the experience.

Among the many Honkai Star Rail characters to unlock in the early stages of the game, players can add Bronya to their teams. This five-star character can be very useful in battle and is one of the strongest options players have to explore the different planets the experience has to offer.

So, here’s everything you need to know about Bronya’s build in Honkai Star Rail, including the best Light Cone and Relics.

Players can find Bronya in the Belobog storyline.

Bronya’s abilities in Honkai Star Rail explained

Bronya Rand is a five-star Wind element character in the Harmony Path in Honkai Star Rail, which means she’s a great support character for your team.

She has the following abilities in Honkai Star Rail:

  • Windrider Bullet (Basic attack) – Deals single-target Wind DMG equal to 50%-130% of Bronya’s ATK.
  • Combat Redeployment (Skill) – Picks an ally to remove a debuff, advance forward their actions by 100%, and increase their DMG by 36% for one turn.
  • Union March (Ultimate) – The ATK of all allies is increased by 36%-72%, and their CRIT DMG increases based on 12%-18% of Bronya’s CRIT DMG plus 12%-24% for 2 turns.
  • Leading the Way (Talent) – Bronya’s next action will be Advanced Forward by 15%-37.5% after she uses her Basic attack.
  • Banner of Command (Technique) – After using Bronya’s Technique, all allies have a 15% increased ATK for 2 turns.

Bronya can cleanse characters of debuffs while buffing every team member, so should focus on improving her SPD, Energy Regeneration, and Break Effect. Her CRIT DMG is connected to the buffs she can provide, so it’s another aspect worth boosting.

Best Relics for Bronya in Honkai Star Rail

Eagle of Twilight Line

  • Two-piece bonus – Increases Wind DMG by 10%.
  • Four-piece bonus – After the wearer uses Ultimate, their action is Advanced Forward by 25%.

Since you’re not looking to increase Bronya’s damage output in any Honkai Star Rail team, we recommend getting the four piece set of Eagle of Twilight Line. Bronya’s Ultimate is very useful and you’ll be casting it quite a lot, so getting more actions in a turn after that is a must.

Thief of Shooting Meteor

  • Two-piece bonus: Increases Break Effect by 20%.
  • Four-piece bonus: Increases the wearer’s Break Effect by 20%. When the wearer inflicts Weakness Break on an enemy, regenerates 3 Energy.

Thief of Shooting Meteor is a great alternative that will boost Bronya’s Break Effect with either a two or a four-piece set. Although Eagle of Twilight Line is better in this case, both Relic sets will make Bronya control the flow of battle, giving teammates many opportunities to attack.

Keep in mind that you won’t find Relics in the early stages of the game, so you should focus on leveling up characters and finding the best Light Cone for them in the meantime.

Bronya’s Ultimate has many effects in battle.

Best Planar Ornament for Bronya in Honkai Star Rail

Sprightly Vonwacq is the best Planar Ornament for Bronya in Honkai Star Rail. It increases Bronya’s Energy Regeneration Rate by 5%, and when her SPD reaches 145 or higher, her action is Advanced Forward by 50% immediately upon entering battle.

Fleet of the Ageless is another viable alternative for Bronya’s build. It increases her Max HP by 12%, and when her SPD reaches 120 or higher, all allies’ ATK increases by 8%.

As you can see, the first option improves Bronya’s capabilities to command the flow of battle. The second one, on the other hand, enhances Bronya’s buffs while making her a little bit more durable.

Best Light Cone for Bronya in Honkai Star Rail

But the Battle Isn’t Over

This is a five-star Light Cone that best suits Bronya’s capabilities in Honkai Star Rail. It increases her Energy Regeneration Rate, which is great to use Bornya’s Ultimate as much as you can.

This Light Cone also regenerates 1 Skill Point when the wearer uses their Ultimate on an ally, which seems tailor-made for Bronya. Lastly, when Bronya uses her Skill, the next ally taking action deals 30% more DMG for one turn.

Dance! Dance! Dance!

While the previous Light Cone offers many new possibilities for Bronya in battle, this one boosts her already solid capabilities. It makes all allies’ actions Advance Forward by 16% when Bronya uses her Ultimate.

Memories of the Past

This last Light Cone increases Bronya’s Break Effect by 28% and regenerates 4 Energy when she attacks. This effect can only be triggered 1 time per turn, but stacked with other effects and Relics, it allows Bronya to spam her Ultimate and buff team members constantly.

Best teams for Bronya in Honkai Star Rail

Luckily, Honkai Star Rail players that got Bronya can set her on pretty much any possible team composition they want. Since it’s a support character that can spam attacks and renegerate Energy pretty fast, players should take advantage of her abilities.

Setting Bronya with heavy hitters from other elements can make farming a more enjoyable and quick activity. Having a shielder can be useful to protect Bronya so she can set up different buffs during battle.

That’s the best Bronya build we can recommend for Honkai Star Rail. Keep in mind that your playstyle might differ from this one, so make sure you check every available Relic, Light Cone, and Planar Ornament that best suits your approach.
