Honkai Star Rail Physical Trailblazer Build

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

Honkai Star Rail Trailblazer Story Introduction

Trailblazer is the main protagonist in Honkai Star Rail. The story begins with Kafka and Silver Wolf awakening the vessel that can contain the Stellaron itself. That vessel is none other than you, the Trailblazer itself. Unconscious for a little while, Dan Heng planned to give you CPR, but then March 7th prevented that from happening.

Awakened with a Stellaron inside yourself, you began your journey together with Dan Heng, March 7th, and the other crew of the Astral Express to save the world from the other Stellarons. What kind of stories will you and the Astral Express encounter? Are you ready to Trailblaze the universe and save everyone?

As you start the game, The Trailblazer will have a Physical element. But don’t worry! As you progress through the game, you can switch elements like Fire Trailblazer. In this guide, we will give you the best build for Physical Trailblazer.

Best Honkai Star Rail Physical Trailblazer Build

Physical Trailblazer has the Destruction Path, which is a great damage dealer and can act as the Main DPS for your team. For the Ultimate kit itself, Physical Trailblazer can do two things, use the skill to do AoE Physical attack, or use the single target nuke attack that could hit hard and potentially kills the enemy. Physical Trailblazer is the great all-rounder DPS for both group enemies or single boss situations.

With this in mind, the best build for Physical Trailblazer is increasing their Physical DMG or ATK. You can either choose Champion of Streetwise Boxing for the Physical DMG, or Musketeer of Wild Wheat for the ATK and SPD buff. But, the former will be much better than the latter one.

For the Light Cone, you only need to focus on the Destruction Light Cone, since we can’t activate the effect from the other Light Cone’s Path. Here are the best Light Cone, Relics, Planar Ornaments, and the best Team Comp for Physical Trailblazer.

This Relics could potentially be the BiS for Physical Trailblazer since you can stack the ATK buff up to 32%.
