Jing Yuan will headline the next banner starting May 17, so it makes sense this new character arrives shortly after in some form.

All Honkai Star Rail Jingliu abilities

Trusted leaker Mero shared Jingliu’s abilities on Twitter shortly after the latest Honkai Star Rail trailer was released. Below you’ll find all of Jingliu’s abilities in the game, but keep in mind that none of this information has been officially confirmed by HoYoverse yet.

  • Feathered Frost (Basic attack) – Deals Ice DMG to a single enemy and gains two stacks of ‘New Moon.’
  • Moonlit River (Skill) – Deals Ice DMG to one enemy and surrounding enemies. Consumes two stacks of ‘Moonlight.’
  • Moonlit (Ultimate) – Deals Ice DMG to one enemy and surrounding enemies. If Jingliu is in the ‘Transcendence’ state, she gains two stacks of ‘Moonlight’ after attacking. If not, she gains two stacks of ‘New Moon.’
  • Talent – With four stacks of ‘New Moon’, Jingliu enters the ‘Transcendence’ state and sacrifices the party’s HP to increase her ATK. During the ‘Transcendence’ state, ‘New Moon’ turns into ‘Moonlight’ and Jingliu obtains a new skill.
  • Technique – Jingliu gains two stacks of ‘New Moon’ at the beginning of a battle.

From the leaks, we can tell Jingliu will be a very particular character, probably best suited for expert players. She will need a support character and a powerful healer due to her risky Ultimate but could be a dangerous ally. Players are already wondering about her stats to figure out if her skills are worth the sacrifice.
