Healers are an important part of RPG games like Honkai Star Rail since they keep the team in the best state while battling. This makes Natasha perfect for the job, as she’s the go-to healer for every starting player. Here are the best Light Cones, Eidolons, and Relics that you can build Natasha up with.

In Honkai Star Rail, players will have access to Natasha early in the game. She is a four-star healer who is a doctor from the Underworld and leads Wildfire, a group of insurgents.

Keeping her on your team is wise because she’s a free unit and can be unlocked by completing the mission ‘Lying in Rust’ on Jarilo-VI. She is an excellent free-to-play character who is mainly a strong healer to her allies and a great pick for teams during battle. 

So, let’s take a look at Natasha’s best Light Cones, Planar Ornaments, Eidolons, and Relics, along with her abilities in Honkai Star Rail.

Natasha’s abilities in Honkai Star Rail

Natasha is a four-star Physical element character in the Path of The Abundance, meaning she’s a healer. Players can unlock this character for free early in the game so they don’t have to spend money trying to pull another healer.

In Honkai Star Rail, Natasha possesses the following abilities:

  • Behind the Kindness (Basic ATK): Deals single-target Physical DMG.
  • Love, Heal, and Choose (Skill): Heals a single ally. Additionally, it restores more health to the same ally at the beginning of the next two turns.
  • Gift of Rebirth (Ultimate): Heals all allies for a greater amount of HP.
  • Innervation (Talent): Natasha grants more healing if the target ally’s HP is less than 30% of their max HP.
  • Hypnosis Research (Technique): Immediately attacks the enemy. After entering battle, Natasha deals Physical DMG to a random enemy and weakens all enemies. All Weakened enemies deal 30% less DMG to allies for a turn.

With these abilities, it’s best to improve Natasha’s healing output and HP to make sure she stays in the fight as long as she can. Enhancing her SPD is also a great move to have her heal her allies more often. Last but not least, improving her Energy regeneration can help her spam her Ultimate to heal allies regularly.

How to use Natasha in Honkai Rail

Although Natasha has a basic attack that deals physical DMG in Honkai Star Rail, it’s always best to use her as the healer that she’s meant to be. Her primary role is to top off the HP to her allies, so prioritizing the right healing abilities rather than using her basic attack will be ideal.

Natasha belongs to the Physical Element and her basic ATK will do physical damage to those who share the same weakness. Players who have her should focus on using her Ultimate and Skill equally to sustain damage from enemies.

Natasha’s Eidolon Levels in Honkai Star Rail

Natasha is a four-star healer.

In Honkai Star Rail, the Warp system helps you get new characters, and Eidolons are used to upgrade your character. With Natasha, you can upgrade her Eidolons up to six times: 

  • Pharmacology Expertise (Eidolon level 1): After being attacked, if Natasha’s HP is equal to or lower than 30% of her max HP, she will heal herself for one time to restore 15% of her max HP plus 400. This effect takes place once per battle.
  • Clinical Research (Eidolon Level 2): After using her Ultimate, Natasha continuously heals allies with 30% or less HP for a turn. The healing is based on 6% of Natasha’s max HP plus 160.
  • The Right Cure (Eidolon Level 3): Skill Lv. +2, up to a maximum of Lv. 15. Basic ATK Lv. +1, up to a maximum of Lv. 10.
  • Miracle Cure (Eidolon Level 4): Natasha regenerates 5 more Energy after an enemy attack hits her.
  • Preventive Treatment (Eidolon Level 5): Ultimate Lv. +2, up to a maximum of Lv. 15. Talent Lv. +2, up to a maximum of Lv. 15.
  • Doctor’s Grace (Eidolon Level 6): Natasha’s Basic ATK’s physical DMG is increased by 40% of her Max HP.

Eidolons are similar to Constellations that you might remember from Genshin Impact. They act as upgrades after you receive duplicates of a character.

In Natasha’s case, her second Eidolon will let her heal continuously after using her Ultimate, and the fourth Eidolon will regenerate more energy after getting attacked. The final Eidolon will increase Natasha’s basic ATK damage, but having said that, it’s best to keep her as a healer and not a damage dealer.

Best Light Cones for Natasha in Honkai Sar Rail

Time Waits for No One

This is a five-star Honkai Star Rail Light Cone that increases the wearer’s Max HP and Outgoing Healing by 12-24%. When the wearer heals allies, the Light Cone records the amount of Outgoing Healing. Now, when any allies perform an attack, one of the attacked enemies gets an additional DMG equal to 50-100% of the Outgoing Healing that was recorded earlier.

Post-Op Conversation

This is a four-star Light Cone that increases the wearer’s Energy Regeneration Rate by 8-16% and increases their healing by 12-24% after using an Ultimate.

Cornucopia

This is a three-star Light Cone in which the wearer’s healing output increases by 12-24% after using their Skill or Ultimate. 

Although you could give Natasha the five-star Light Cone called Time Waits for No One which is best for Bailu, she can easily make the most of the four-star Post-Op Conversation that focuses on increased healing through Ultimate which is exactly how Natasha heals her allies.

You can get it by pulling the Gacha but in case, you do not get either of the Light Cones, you can use Cornucopia. This is a three-star Light Cone that will increase Natasha’s overall healing output after using her skill which will be useful during combat.

Best Relic & Planar Ornament for Natasha in Honkai Sar Rail

For Natasha, the best would be to combine the Passerby of Wandering Cloud Relic set with the Fleet of the Ageless Planar Ornaments.

  • Passerby of Wandering Cloud
    • Two-piece bonus: Increases Healing by 10%
    • Four-piece bonus: Wearer immediately regenerates 1 Skill Point at the start of the battle.
  • Fleet of Ageless: Wearer’s max HP increases by 12%. When the wearer’s SPD reaches 120 or higher, all allies’ ATK increases by 8%.

Natasha’s healing in Honkai Star Rail is based on her max HP, which is why players need to accumulate as much HP as possible from Relics and Light Cones. In all, the best Relic sets for Natasha in Honkai Star Rail would be to use the four-piece Passerby of Wandering Cloud along with the two-piece Fleet of Ageless Planar Ornament.

The Passerby of Wandering Cloud would be a better fit until you unlock more Relics for your character by progressing in the story. Furthermore, it will increase the Outgoing Healing and grant Natasha a skill point in the very beginning. Lastly, the Fleet of Ageless will increase the maximum HP when Natasha’s SPD is 120 or above along with a quick attack boost to her allies.

Best Honkai Star Rail teams for Natasha

Since Natasha is a healer in Honkai Star Rail, there isn’t much to think about when picking her team. You’ll need to pair her with a DPS or two to ensure you deal consistent damage to enemies. To round up your formation, you could either go with a shielder or a support character.

In the DPS department, Dan Heng works very well alongside Natasha because her Skill and Ultimate can trigger Dan Heng’s passive ability. Clara can be your tank to divert all attention to her as long as you can keep her alive with Natasha’s abilities.

For support characters, Pela or Asta are great options for a free-to-play team. Asta can buff allies, while Pela can weaken enemies, so pick whichever works best with your playstyle.
