Honkai Star Rail Hook Build

Are you wondering how well Hook compares to other characters in the game? Check out our Honkai Star Rail tier list guide.

Honkai Star Rail Hook Story Introduction

Acted as the self-proclaimed boss of The Moles adventure squad, Hook is the boss that promoted you as their honorary member of The Moles. Also known by her code name Pitch-Dark Hook the Great, Hook has a very brave soul to her heart. Despite her tenacity in being the leader of The Moles, she actually still has a heart of a young girl.

She’s very caring and kind towards her friends and, of course, to her beloved father too. Not only that, The Moles that she also leads unintentionally have a “connection” to Wildfire, as she is also close to Natasha. Despite this, she often calls Natasha the “old witch” due to her interference with The Moles’ adventure. As the honorary member of the Moles, it is now your turn to help Hook become the best DPS of the Destruction Path. Don’t worry, because, in this guide, we will help you guide Hook, we mean Pitch-Dark Hook the Great, to become the best leader of The Moles by giving her the best build set!

Best Honkai Star Rail Hook Build

Since Hook is a Destruction Path character, she is a great all-rounder DPS character. With the kit that can apply burn or Fire DoT attack to the enemy from her skill, she will have greater damage if she also attacks the enemies with the burn DoT effect. Casting her Ultimate means that her next skill will also deal AoE fire attack to the enemy, but it will only give the burn chance towards the targetted enemy and not the adjacent enemy.

For Hook’s Relics and Planar Ornament build, Hook’s entire damage, including her burning DoT damage scales on her ATK. But since her Talent will buff her fire damage even higher for attacking enemies with burn effect, we strongly suggest you use Fire Relics Firesmith of Lava-Forging since the Fire DMG boost will have a higher multiplier compared to ATK. And for the Ornament, you can use ATK or CRIT Rate Planar Ornament set for Hook to increase her damage even higher.

As for Hook’s Light Cone build, you can focus on the Destruction 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 Hook.

Honkai Star Rail Hook Best Light Cone

On the Fall of an Aeon
✦✦✦✦✦
Whenever the wearer attacks, increase their ATK by  8/10/12/14/16% in this battle, up to 4 time(s).When the wearer inflicts Weakness Break on enemies, the wearer’s DMG increases by  12/15/18/21/24% for 2 turn(s).

Hook’s Best in Slot Light Cone.

This Light Cone will increase Hook’s ATK up to 40% after attacking four times.

Since her kit revolves around ATK a lot, this will significantly increase her damage. Very recommended to have since you can get this Light Cone from Herta’s store, too, even for F2P players.

The Moles Welcome You
✦✦✦✦
For every Basic ATK, Skill, and Ultimate used by the wearer, the wearer gains one stack of Mischievous. 
Each stack increases the wearer’s ATK by 12/15/18/21/24%.

Hook’s signature Light Cone.

Slightly lower than On the Fall of an Aeon, but both of these Light Cones are very useful for Hook.

Woof! Walk Time!
✦✦✦✦
Increases the wearer’s ATK by 10/12/14/16/18/20%, and increases their DMG to enemies affected with Burn or Bleed by 20/25/30/35/40%. This also applies to DoT.

Because Hook’s skill can potentially apply Burn without having to break their weakness, we can benefit from the extra damage buff that this Light Cone gives.

A Secret Vow
✦✦✦✦
Increases DMG dealt by the wearer by 20/25/30/35/40%
The wearer also deals an extra 20/25/30/35/40% of DMG to enemies with a higher HP percentage than the wearer.

Even though we can’t always proc the extra dmg from attacking enemies with higher HP, this Light Cone gives a similar outcome to Woof! Walk Time!

Nowhere to Run
✦✦✦✦
Increases the wearer’s ATK by 20/25/30/35/40%. Whenever the wearer defeats an enemy, they restore HP equal to 12/15/18/21/24% of their ATK.

Despite the self-sustainability of self-healing from dealing with the enemy is quite juicy, we don’t actually need that healing.

But the ATK increase is quite juicy, and it’s very worth it for Hook, so we still recommend this Light Cone for Hook

Collapsing Sky
✦✦✦
Increases the wearer’s Basic ATK and Skill DMG by 16/20/24/28/32%.

The Budget F2P friendly Light Cone for Hook.

We can potentially get this Light Cone easier, and the max superimpose effect of this Light Cone could potentially be equivalent to having a four-star Light Cone too.

Honkai Star Rail Hook Best Relics

As a fire DPS character, the Relics choice might be quite obvious since we would like to invest a lot in Fire DMG. But if you don’t have the 4 set Fire Relics yet, you can also go with 4 set ATK or 2 set ATK 2 set Fire Relics until you have farmed enough Fire Relics for Hook.

Firesmith of Lava-Forging
2 Set: Increases Fire DMG by 10%.
4 Set:
Increases the wearer’s Skill DMG by 12%.
After unleashing Ultimate, increases the wearer’s Fire DMG by 12% for next attack.

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%.

Firesmith of Lava-Forging (2pc)
Musketeer of Wild Wheat (2pc)

2 Set: Increases Fire DMG by 10%. (Lava-Forging)
2 Set: ATK increases by 10%. (Wild Wheat)

Honkai Star Rail Hook Best Planar Ornaments

Similar to the other main DPS build, for Hook’s Planar Ornaments you would like to invest a lot in CRIT and ATK. We would highly recommend you go with CRIT Rate Ornament that will buff her Ultimate instead of choosing the CRIT Rate Ornament that will buff your Basic ATK and Skill DMG because Hook’s Ultimate significantly outperformed her Basic ATK and Skill DMG combined together.

You don’t need to worry about the Regeneration Rate since Hook’s talent will increase her energy every time she attacks the enemies inflicted with Burn effect.

Celestial Differentiator
2 Set: Increases the wearer’s CRIT Rate by 8%.
When the wearer’s current CRIT Rate reaches 80% or higher, the wearer’s Basic ATK and Skill DMG increase by 20%.

Space Sealing Station
2 Set: Increases the wearer’s ATK by 12%.
When the wearer’s SPD reaches 120 or higher, the wearer’s ATK increases by another 12%.

Inert Salsotto
2 Set: Increases the wearer’s CRIT Rate by 8%.
When the wearer’s current CRIT Rate reaches 50% or higher, the wearer’s Ultimate and follow-up attack DMG increases by 15%.

Honkai Star Rail Hook Best Team Comp

As a Fire main DPS character, you can go with a support buff character from Harmony Path, or pair Hook with either Preservation Path, or Abundance Path for better survivability.

You can also go with multiple DPS characters or use any random character that has the specific elemental weakness counter to break that enemy’s weaknesses.

Here are some team composition examples that you can use with Hook.

Summary

And that’s how you get the best Honkai Star Rail Hook build. 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. As a Fire DPS Character, you can invest a lot in Fire DMG, ATK, and CRIT. Hook’s kit revolves around attacking an enemy that got inflicted in burn since it will buff her attack even more and it will regenerate energy for her too.
