Space Station Task Force

Celestial Eyes Above Mortal Ruins will take players back to Herta Space Station to help researchers with revival work. This event will add new special Assignments for a limited time, and players will be able to obtain rewards such as Stellar Jade, EXP materials, and more.

Aurum Alley’s Hustle and Bustle

Aurum Alley will be a new area of the Xianzhou Luofu, and it will be the center of the Aurum Alley’s Hustle and Bustle event. After finishing the Xianzhou Luofu storyline, players will be able to decide what to do with this area before going back to the Astral Express.

It will be up to players to determine if Aurum Alley will be rebuilt by the IPC or by the local merchant guilds through different objectives and decisions. Since players have to wait a bit more for the main storyline to continue, this event will keep them entertained.

Additionally, two returning events will boost drops on version 1.3 of Honkai Star Rail:

  • The Planar Fissure event will double Planar Ormanet drops in the Simulated Universe.
  • The Garden of Plenty event will double the rewards for completing Golden and Crimson Calyxs.

Honkai Star Rail 1.3 Trailblaze Power cap increase

Honkai Star Rail increased the Trailblaze Power cap with update 1.3.

Trailblaze Power allows players to tackle challenges like Calyxes and Simulated Universe worlds in search of valuable resources. The original cap is 180, meaning players had to wait 18 hours to regenerate all Trailblazer Power. With the new cap, players are able to do more challenges and need to wait a whole day for complete regeneration.

What’s more, update 1.3 also introduced players to the Reserved Trailblaze Power feature. “When Trailblaze Power reaches or exceeds the max limit, Reserved Trailblaze Power will begin to regenerate over time,” states the official description. This means players have even more Trailblaze power to tackle all kinds of challenges daily.
