Honkai Star Rail Bronya Story Introduction
As the heir to the Supreme Guardian of Belobog, Bronya has one crucial role that could impact the future of Belobog, continuing the legacy from her mother, Cocolia. But what lies ahead in Belobog is not as what it seems. With the Fragmentum secretly taking control of Belobog, and how Cocolia hides the truth from the entire people inside Belobog, will Bronya have what it takes to make Belobog a better place?
According to the story, Honkai: Star Rail Bronya is the commander of the Silvermane Guards, from little she already got rigorous education and was taught well by Cocolia herself, the ruler of Belobog. But, as Bronya witnesses the hidden truth inside the Underworld in Belobog, now Bronya’s mind is filled with doubt and uncertainty.
Best Bronya Build in Honkai Star Rail
Since Bronya is a Harmony Path character, she excels in becoming your support character. As of now, she is currently the only character with “spammable” advancing turn from her skill, cleansing one character and buffing the entire team with both ATK and CRIT DMG buff. You don’t need to invest in DMG for Bronya, but rather go with support builds like SPD, Energy Regeneration Rate, or Break Effect. Make sure you also have high CRIT DMG because Bronya’s CRIT DMG buff scales from a portion of her own CRIT DMG too.
For Bronya’s Relics and Planar Ornament build, we highly suggest you go with 4 set Wind Relics Eagle of Twilight Line since it will forward Bronya’s action after casting her Ultimate. We actually can ignore Bronya’s Wind DMG Boost from this Relics set effect since Bronya isn’t built to become a DPS character. For her Planar Ornament, you can go with Energy Regeneration Rate or Break Effect, which we would recommend the former one more so that you can buff your entire team’s ATK and CRIT DMG much faster.
As for Bronya’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 Bronya:
Bronya Build: Best Light Cones
The best Light Cones for Bronya are:
- But The Battle Isn’t Over
- Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds
- Memories of the Past
But The Battle Isn’t Over
Increases the wearer’s Energy Regeneration Rate by 8/10/12/14/16% and regenerates 1 Skill Point when the wearer uses their Ultimate on an ally.
This effect can be triggered after every 2 uses of the wearer’s Ultimate.
When the wearer uses their Skill, the next ally taking action deals 30/37.5/45/52.5/60% more DMG for 1 turn(s).
But The Battle Isn’t Over is Bronya’s Signature Light Cone and her Best in Slot Light Cone.
For Bronya, you want to invest in high Energy Regeneration Rate so she can cast her Ultimate to buff your team more often.
This Light Cone will automatically buff your next character’s DMG, too, so very ideal for giving support to your allies.
Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds
One of the following effects is applied randomly at the start of combat and whenever the wearer takes action:
Increase all allies’ ATK by 10/12.5/15/17.5/20%,
increase all allies’ CRIT DMG by 12/15/18/21/24%,
or increase all allies’ Energy Regeneration Rate by 6/7.5/9/10.5/12%.
The applied effect cannot be identical to the last effect applied, and will replace the previous effect. The applied effect will be removed when the wearer has been knocked down. Effects of the similar type cannot be stacked.
Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds is one of the best four-star support Light Cone for Bronya.
With either increasing the ATK, or CRIT DMG, or Energy Regeneration Rate, this Light Cone will activate the effect automatically, so you don’t need to do anything to gain the buff for your team.
Just make sure Bronya stays alive so that the buff will stay active.
Memories of the Past
Increases the wearer’s Break Effect by 24/30/36/42/48%.
When the wearer attacks, additionally regenerates 4/5/6/7/8 Energy.This effect can only be triggered 1 time per turn.
Memories of the Past is Bronya’s four-star Light Cone.
Both the Break Effect and the Energy Regeneration are the bread and butter of Bronya’s kit.
Bronya usually used her skill more often than her basic ATK (because her Ultimate won’t do attack, too), so sometimes you won’t gain the Energy regeneration from this Light Cone.
After entering battle, increases the ATK of all allies by 8/9/10/11/12%.Effects of the same type cannot stack.
Chorus is the budget F2P version of Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds. This Light Cone will always buff your entire team’s ATK, so you only need to aim for the max superimpose if you are able to gain the highest ATK Buff for your team.
Bronya Best Stats
- Body: CRIT DMG
- Feet: Speed
- Planar Sphere: DEF% / HP%
- Link Rope: Energy Regen Rate
- Substats: Speed > Crit DMG > DEF%% = HP%
Bronya Build: Best Relics
Because Bronya can manipulate turns from her skill, SPD is one of her crucial attributes. The good thing is you can choose between the 4-set Wind relics for the turn advancement after using Ultimate or the permanent SPD buff from 4-set ATK Relics. If you have high Energy Regeneration Rate, we highly recommend you go with 4 set Wind Relics, but if you have low Energy Regeneration Rate, then you can go for 4 set ATK Relics.
The best relics for Bronya are:
- Eagle of Twilight Line
- Musketeer of Wild Wheat
Eagle of Twilight Line
2 Set: Increases Wind DMG by 10%.
4 Set: After the wearer uses Ultimate, their action is Advanced Forward by 25%.
Musketeer of Wild Wheat
2 Set: ATK increases by 10%.
4 Set: The wearer’s SPD increases by 6% and Basic ATK DMG increases by 10%.
Bronya Build: Best Planar Ornaments
For Bronya’s Planar Ornament, you can go with any Ornaments that will support either Bronya or your entire team (like the HP Ornaments that will buff the entire team’s ATK). Energy Regeneration and SPD is very crucial for Bronya, so if you can focus on these attributes first, we highly recommend you go for these two attributes.
Fleet of the Ageless Planar Ornaments would be useful to increase all allies’ ATK, but only if you can increase March 7th’s SPD to reach 120 or higher. As for Talia: Kingdom of Banditry, you don’t really need to invest 145 SPD or higher to trigger the secondary ornament effect. Even 20% Break Effect is already enough for March 7th, since her role is to give shields to your team.
These are the best Planar Ornaments for Bronya are:
- Sprightly Vonwacq
- Fleet of the Ageless
- Talia: Kingdom of Banditry
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% immediately upon entering battle.
Fleet of the Ageless
2 Set: Increases the wearer’s Max HP by 12%.
When the wearer’s SPD reaches 120 or higher, all allies’ ATK increases by 8%.
Talia: Kingdom of Banditry
2 Set: Increases the wearer’s Break Effect by 20%.
When the wearer’s SPD reached 145 or higher, the wearer’s Break effect increases by an additional extra 28%.
Best Bronya Team in Honkai Star Rail
As a support character for your team, you definitely need a damage dealer due to her damage buff role. It would be better if you pair Bronya with more DPS instead of more support because Bronya’s support role already fills a lot of buffs like ATK, CRIT DMG, and turn manipulation. So you can actually go with only Bronya as your support alongside a healer or a tanker, and no need for another support character.
Here are some team composition examples that you can pair with Bronya.
Best Bronya Team:
Best Bronya F2P Team:
And that is how you can get the best Bronya build in Honkai Star Rail. There may be some adjustments and different configurations for her in the future, so stay tuned for updates to this guide.
Due to her role as your team buffer and turn manipulation, you only need to invest in SPD, Energy Regeneration Rate, and CRIT DMG because her CRIT DMG buff from her Ultimate scales from her own CRIT DMG.
