Honkai Star Rail Pela Story Introduction

Pelageya Sergeyevna, also known as Pela, is assigned as the Intelligence Officer and admired by a lot of Silvermane Guards. Due to her brilliance in solving any affairs and problems, Pela surely knows how to radiate reliability from her presence. No matter how absurd or complex it is, Pela always knows how to solve the problem calmly. Whether it is to maneuvering troops, distributing supplies, or managing the terrain, Pela has all the answers to all of them.

You can definitely ask a lot of questions, and Pela will be there to answer them, except for one thing. Never ask her about her “hobby”, despite the fact we will often see her visiting the local magazine stand. Not to mention, her phone case is too obvious too. But worry not! If you have questions about how to manage the best build for Pela, we have the answer for you!

Best Honkai Star Rail Pela Build

Since Pela is a Nihility Path character, her kit revolves around giving debuff to the enemy. Pela is actually one of the best debuffer in Honkai Star Rail right now since she can remove one buff from the enemy from her skill and apply AoE Exposed status to all enemies from her Ultimate, which will reduce their DEF, and this DEF reduction can get higher and higher the more you upgrade her Ultimate traces. With this DEF shred, your team can now deliver even high damage than ever too, so Pela is also your main DPS best friend that you can ever have.

For Pela’s Relics and Planar Ornament build, she acts as your debuff support character but her skill is still quite strong enough to make her a Sub DPS too. With that in mind, you can use the Ice Relics for her, especially the 4 set Hunter of Glacial Forest.

As for the Planar Ornament, it would be better to have the Effect Hit Rate Planar Ornament because the enemy also has effect RES. It would be a shame if Pela’s Ultimate failed to apply DEF Shred because enemy have higher RES than your Effect Hit Rate. So you can go with Pan-Galactic Commercial Enterprise. Because in the end, this Ornament will increase Pela’s ATK, too, so she can still benefit from the slightly higher damage bonus too.

As for Pela’s Light Cone build, you can focus on the Nihility 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 Pela.

Honkai Star Rail Pela Best Light Cones

In the Name of the World
Increases the wearer’s DMG to debuffed enemies by 20/25/30/35/40%.
When the wearer uses their Skill, the Effect Hit Rate for this attack increases by 20/25/30/35/40%, and ATK increases by 20/25/30/35/40%.

Pela’s Best in Slot Light Cone.

With higher DMG increase compared to her Signature Light Cone, this Light Cone also increase Pela’s ATK after she cast her skill.

This Light Cone will also increase Pela’s Hit Rate, which makes her apply her Exposed debuff more easily.

Good Night and Sleep Well
For every debuff the target enemy has, the DMG dealt by the wearer increases by 12/15/18/21/24%, stacking up to 3 time(s).
This effect also applies to DoT.

Pela’s Signature Light Cone.

Due to Pela’s role as Sub DPS too, this Light Cone will help her increase her damage in the battle.

Honkai Star Rail Pela Best Relics

Despite the fact she is a Nihility character, we still recommend you build Pela like how you would build a Sub DPS character by using their elemental Relics. 4-set Ice Relics is the best bet for Pela for the higher damage output. But if you don’t have this 4-set Relics yet, you can also go with either 2-set ATK 2 set Ice or 4-set ATK Relics.

Hunter of Glacial Forest
2 Set: Increases Ice DMG by 10%.
4 Set: After the wearer unleashes their Ultimate, their CRIT DMG increases by 25% for 2 turn(s).

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%.

Hunter of Glacial Forest 2pc
Musketeer of Wild Wheat 2pc

2 Set: Increases Ice DMG by 10%. (Glacial Forest)
2 Set: ATK increases by 10%. (Wild Wheat

Honkai Star Rail Pela Best Planar Ornaments

As for Pela’s Planar Ornament, you actually have more choices than you can choose for Pela. We strongly recommend you go with the Effect Hit Rate so you can land the DEF Shred more easily. You can also go with the Energy Regeneration for faster Ultimate casting. Those two are the higher priority that we would recommend you to have first. If you don’t have them yet, you can use the Ornament that will increase your damage output, whether increasing the CRIT Rate or the ATK.

Pan-Galactic Commercial Enterprise
2 Set: Increases the wearer’s Effect Hit Rate by 10%.
Meanwhile, the wearer’s ATK increases by an amount that is equal to 25% of Effect Hit Rate, up to a maximum of 25%.

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%.

Sprightly Vonwacq
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 Pela Best Team Comp

Pela’s purpose is to be your team’s debuff support by shredding the enemy’s DEF. She will also strip one of the buffs from your enemy. To gain the best advantage of this, we strongly recommend you pair Pela together with your main DPS, either from The Hunt Path, Destruction Path, or even Erudition Path, so that they can swoop up the enemy easily. It’s also useful to pair Pela with a Harmony Path character so that your team also has the ATK buff, to deal even high damage.

Here are some of the team composition examples that you can use together with Pela.


That is how you can get the best Honkai Star Rail Pela 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. Pela’s unique role as your DEF Shredder and Buff stripper makes her one of a kind, which will definitely help you in combat significantly.
