All Honkai Star Rail elements: Full list, effects, weaknesses
Unlike Genshin Impact, elements in Honkai Star Rail don’t have a fixed weakness. An enemy’s weaknesses are indicated on top of its HP bar, and these change every single time. Because of this, players need to study their opponents carefully before attacking.
Elements come into play when breaking an enemy’s toughness bar, the solid white line on top of its HP bar. Use attacks that match the elements associated with the enemy to efficiently take them down.
|Wind||Using Wind attacks to trigger Weakness Break will deal Wind DMG and apply the Wind Shear effect, dealing Wind DoT.|
