Honkai Star Rail has been going pretty strong since its release and now it’s time for Jing Yuan’s arrival in-game. So here’s what you need to know about the new character’s abilities, release date, and more.

Honkai Star Rail features plenty of characters and each of them comes with its own set of unique abilities, elements, and paths allowing you to pick the best of the lot.

Currently, players are gearing up for Jing Yuan’s arrival in-game. Jing is a powerful five-star character and Honkai Star Rail players have been keeping an eye out for him ever since the character was first spotted in the closed beta.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at his abilities, release date, and everything else that you need to know.

Who is Jing Yuan in Honkai Star Rail?

Jing Yuan is a strong five-star character who was officially announced on May 25, 2022. He belongs to the Path of Erudition and has Lightning as his Element. All enemies in Honkai Star Rail are susceptible to certain Elements that help break their shields. So, players can use Jing’s Lightning DMG to attack those opponents who have a Lightning Element weakness.

Honkai Star Rail: Jing Yuan’s abilities

Glistening Light (Basic Attack)

Jing Yuan’s ATK deals Lightning DMG equal to 50% on a single opponent.

Rifting Zenith (Skill)

Rifting Zenith is an AoE ATK that deals Lightning DMG equal to 50% of Jing Yuan’s ATK to every opponent. This skill also boosts the Lightning-Lord’s attack by increasing its count to 2 on the next turn.

Lightbringer (Ultimate)

Jing Yuan’s ultimate is one of the strongest AoE moves in the game. It deals Lightning DMG equal to 120% of Jing’s ATK to every opponent. Similarly, it boosts Lightning-Lord’s attack count by 3 for the following turn.

Prana Extirpated (Talent)

Prana Extirpated brings forth the Lightning-Lord at the start of the match. The Lightning-Lord has three base attack counts. Each of these counts deals Lightning DMG equal to Jing Yuan’s ATK on single opponents. The adjacent targets are also impacted and they receive Lightning DMG equal to 25% of the damage inflicted on the primary enemy. The Lightning-Lord also has 60 bases of SPD, and its attack count can reach up to 10. Keep in mind that when the Lightning-Lord’s attack count increases, its speed is also influenced. For example, every single increase in attack count increases SPD by 10. The values return to their base number once the action is complete. The Lightning-Lord will not be able to do anything if Jing Yuan is debuffed by Crowd Control. Similarly, the Lightning-Lord will disappear if Jing Yuan is knocked out.

Command Talisman (Technique)

The Lightning-Lord’s Attack count gets increased by 2 at the start of the following fight when Jing Yuan uses the Command Talisman Technique.

Although the Butterfly on Swordtip banner, which features the five-star character Seele, is a strong damage dealer, fans will want to grab Jing Yuan for a more aggressive approach to eliminating multiple enemies in one wave with equal efficiency. Jing’s ability to call upon a Lightning-Lord is the most fascinating feature which lets him deal massive Lightning DMG to enemies.
