Here are all of Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae’s abilities in Honkai Star Rail:

  • Beneficent Lotus (Basic attack) – A 2-hit attack that deals Imaginary DMG between 50–110% of Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae’s ATK to a single enemy.
  • Transcendence (Basic attack) – A 3-hit attack that deals Imaginary DMG between 130%–286% of Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae’s ATK to a single enemy.
  • Divine Spear (Basic attack) – A 5-hit attack that deals Imaginary DMG equal to 190%—418% of Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae’s ATK to a single enemy. Additionally, from the fourth hit onward, it also deals Imaginary DMG to adjacent targets.
  • Fulgurant Leap (Basic attack) – A 7-hit attack that deals Imaginary DMG equal to 250%–550% of Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae’s ATK to a single enemy. Additionally, from the fourth hit onward, it also deals Imaginary DMG to adjacent targets.
  • Dracore Libre (Skill) – Enhances Basic ATK. Enhancements may be applied up to three times in a row. It’s important to note that using this ability does not consume Skill Points and is not considered as using a Skill, so Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae can trigger this ability and then attack in the same turn.
    • Enhanced once, Basic ATK becomes Transcendence.
    • Enhanced twice, Basic ATK becomes Divine Spear.
    • Enhanced thrice, Basic ATK becomes Fulgurant Leap.
  • Azure’s Aqua Ablutes All (Ultimate) – A 3-hit attack that deals Imaginary DMG to a single enemy target and adjacent targets. Additionally, obtains two Squama Sacrosancta. This works like Skill Points for Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae and prevents him from spending those.
  • Righteous Heart (Talent) – After each hit dealt during an attack, Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae gains one stack of Righteous Heart, increasing his DMG output. This effect can stack up to six times, lasting until the end of his turn.
  • Heaven-Quelling Prismadrakon (Technique) – After using his Technique, Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae enters the Leaping Dragon state for 20 seconds. While in this state, using his attack enables him to move forward rapidly for a set distance, attacking all enemies he touches and blocking all incoming attacks. After entering combat, deals Imaginary DMG to all enemies and gains one Squama Sacrosancta.

As you can see, Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae is an unstoppable force. He not only has different types of Basic ATK to use in different situations, but he can also control his Skill Point consumption after using his Ultimate. Considering his abilities, you’ll want to improve his CRIT Rate and CRIT DMG alongside his ATK and SPD.

It’s also important to note that both Divine Spear and Fulgurant Leap give Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae one stack of Outroar starting with the fourth hit. Each stack of Outroar increases his CRIT DMG until the end of his turn and can be stacked up to four times.

Best Relics for Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae in Honkai Star Rail

Wastelander of Banditry Desert

  • Two-piece bonus: Increases Imaginary DMG by 10%.
  • Four-piece bonus: When attacking debuffed enemies, the wearer’s CRIT Rate increases by 10%. Moreover, if the enemy is Imprisoned, then the wearer’s CRIT DMG increases by 20%.

If you want to improve Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae’s DMG output in Honkai Star Rail, this is a great Relic set for Imaginary characters. However, the four-piece bonus is very specific and might not apply to most battles you’re in, so we recommend going with the two-piece set.

Musketeer of Wild Wheat

  • Two-piece bonus: ATK increases by 10%.
  • Four-piece bonus: The wearer’s SPD increases by 6% and Basic ATK DMG increases by 10%.

You can pair the two-piece set of Wastelander of Banditry Desert with a two-piece set of Musketeer of Wild Wheat to further enhance Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae’s ATK. Since Musketeer of Wild Wheat is the easiest Relic set to get in the game, it’s a pretty good option to keep in mind.
