Honkai Star Rail Asta Story Introduction
The one in charge of managing staff’s thoughts, opinions, and discussions, or anything related to the Intelligentsia Guild, Asta is the Lead Researcher for the Herta Space Station astronomy field. With delegating work here and there, giving orders, and making decisions for the research team, you would not want to mess around with Asta. Filled with curiosity, stored with abundant knowledge about the universe, not to mention energetic and also very reliable, Asta would rather command an entire space station by herself instead of building a business and taking over a company.
Together with Herta as the founder of the Herta Space Station and Arlan as the Head of the Security Department, Asta is also an important character that will help us trailblazing our way together with Dan Heng, March 7th, Himeko, Welt, and Pom pom.
Best Honkai Star Rail Asta Build
Since Asta is a Harmony Path character, her character role is to give support to your team. Asta’s support will buff your team’s ATK up to 25% if she can hit every different enemy. Her Ultimate will increase your team’s SPD so that they potentially can have faster turns compared to your enemies.
For Asta’s Relics and Planar Ornament build, you don’t need to invest in increasing her damage since she is not meant to be your DPS but as support instead. Thief of Shooting Meteor is the recommended Relics since Asta’s skill will cast five bombardments to a random enemy, and each attack will reduce the enemy’s weakness bar. So she can be the fire weakness breaker, and it’s super effective, especially if all five attacks land on one target. Since Asta’s Ultimate will speed up your team’s turn, we also highly recommend you increase her Energy Regeneration by using Sprightly Vonwacq so that she will cast her Ultimate more often. You can also use Talia: Kingdom of Banditry for an even more powerful weakness break.
As for Asta’s Light Cone build, you can focus on the Harmony Path Light Cone since we can’t activate the effect from the other Light Cone’s Path. Here are the best Light Cone, Relics, Planar Ornament, and the best Team Comp for Asta.

The F2P-friendly Light Cone for Asta.
The effect is very self-explanatory, increasing your entire team’s ATK.
Once you have a four-star Light Cone, we highly recommend you switch out this three-star Light Cone for it.
Honkai Star Rail Asta Best Relics
Since there are not a lot of support relic set bonuses right now, there is only one relic set that we will recommend for Asta: Thief of Shooting Meteor. But it would be nice if, in the future, we could also have SPD or Energy Regeneration Relics for a supporting character since it would make them become more helpful support.
Thief of Shooting Meteor
2 Set: Increases Break Effect by 20%.
4 Set: Increases the wearer’s Break Effect by 20%. When the wearer inflicts Weakness Break or an enemy, regenerates 3 Energy.
Honkai Star Rail Asta Best Planar Ornaments

2 Set: Increases the wearer’s Energy Regeneration Rate by 5%.
When the wearer’s SPD reaches 145 or higher, the wearer’s action is Advanced Forward by 50% immediate
Honkai Star Rail Asta Best Team Comp
As a support character, you definitely need a damage dealer. So you can pair Asta with either Destruction Path, Hunt Path, or Erudition Path characters as your Main DPS. Having Shielder or Healer is optional but very much welcome for Asta too. You can also balance the team by adding specific characters that can counter the enemy’s element weakness break.
Here are some Team Comp examples that you can use for Asta.
That is how you can get the best build for Asta. One thing you need to know, Honkai Star Rail is still in the 3rd (final) Close Beta phase, meaning that there will potentially be some adjustments and different configurations for the final release. For Asta, we strongly suggest you to increase her weakness break effect and her energy regeneration so that she can support your team even more effectively.
