Even with HoYoverse frequently adding new content to Honkai Star Rail, fans are curious to know about Argenti, an upcoming character who capture everyone’s interest. Here’s all you need to know about Argenti in Honkai Star Rail, including his official release date, leaked abilities, Light Cone, and more.

With the release of the 1.5 update, Honkai Star Rail welcomed Huohuo into the roster of playable characters. Players are gathering all the materials needed to ascend her but are also looking forward to what’s coming next in HoYoverse’s RPG.

The second phase of version 1.5 will finally introduce players to Argenti, the Knight of Beauty. Since players are excited about his introduction in the main story, here’s everything we know about Argenti in Honkai Star Rail, including his abilities, signature Light Cone, and more.

Who is Argenti in Honkai Star Rail?

In Honkai Star Rail, Argenti is a devoted knight from the “Order of Pure Beauty,” who holds a deep reverence for the lost star goddess “Pure Beauty,” Idrila.

This character is portrayed as an honorable knight, dedicating his time to promoting Idrila’s name and offering prayers to the goddess whenever possible. In addition, Argenti is depicted as a five-star DPS character of the Physical element on the Path of The Erudition.

He will debut after Huohuo‘s banner and will also boost Hanya, a new four-star character.

Argenti leaked abilities in Honkai Star Rail

Argenti is a five-star Physical element character in the Path of The Erudition in Honkai Star Rail. This means he’s specialized in dealing AoE (Area of Effect) damage to multiple enemies.

This is what we know about Argenti’s abilities in Honkai Star Rail, according to leaks:

  • Justice Always Prevails (Skill) – Deals Physical DMG to all enemies.
  • Gift of Formless Beauty (Ultimate) – Consumes Energy to deal Physical DMG to all enemies. This attack can consume either 100% or 200% of the energy cap. If it consumes 200%, Ultimate’s DMG increases and deals six additional hits to random enemies.
  • Neutral Grey (Talent) – When hitting enemies with Basic ATK, Skill, or Ultimate, restores 5 energy and gains one stack of “Self-cultivation,” which increases Argenti’s Critical Rate. This effect can be stacked up to 10 times.
  • Gaze of Beauty (Technique) – Stuns enemies in a certain area for eight seconds. Upon entering battle with the stunned enemy, Argenti restores 5 Energy and deals Physical damage to all enemies.

According to the leaked information, it seems like Argenti will need all the help he can get to regenerate enough Energy to use his Ultimate. Other than that, he could be a great replacement for the Physical Trailblazer and seems to work in most situations, so he might become a very sought-after character.

  • Increase Crit DMG of the wearer. When the wearer casts their Ultimate, DMG will increase according to their Max Energy.

While information is scarce, this tailor-made Light Cone sounds like a great boost for Argenti. It remains to be seen what other characters can take advantage of this Light Cone when it arrives in the game.
