Honkai Star Rail Serval Build

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

Honkai Star Rail Serval Story Introduction

The older sister of the Landau Siblings, Serval was once a close friend of Cocolia, the current Supreme Guardian of Belobog with the passion to do research on the Stellaron. She now works as a mechanic that also runs a rock ‘n’ roll performance workshop as part of her hobby in Belobog. One can only wonder how much money Serval actually has because her occupation in the workshop is only for hobby’s sake only.

In this guide, we will help you get the best build for this badass girl that will swing her axe guitar toward the enemies without any hesitation at all. Get ready to rock ‘n’ roll!

Best Honkai Star Rail Serval Build

Since Serval is an Erudition Path character, she fits the role of your AoE Sub DPS character. Her mechanic revolves around shocking the enemies and leaving Lightning DoT that scales from her ATK. Her Ultimate will also extend the shock state and deal Lightning attack to all enemies based on her ATK.

For Serval’s Relics and Planar Ornament build, since her kit scales on her ATK, we highly suggest you to invest a lot in ATK. Since Serval is also a lightning character, the Lightning Relics Band of Sizzling Thunder actually fits her really well since the 4 set will buff her Lightning DMG and it will also buff her ATK after she cast her skill. For the Planar Ornament, you can go with increasing her ATK by using Space Sealing Station for higher Lightning DoT damage, or you can also go with CRIT Rate Planar Ornament if you prefer to invest in Serval’s high Ultimate damage.

As for Serval’s Light Cone build, you can focus on the Erudition Path Light Cone, since we can’t activate the effect from the other Light Cone’s Path. Some of the Erudition Path Light Cone will focus on the follow-up dmg buff, which Serval don’t have, so you can ignore those Light Cone and focus on the one that will increase Serval’s Ultimate damage or overall damage. Here are the best Light Cone, Relics, Planar Ornament, and the best Team Comp for Serval.

Honkai Star Rail Serval Best Light Cones

Before Dawn
✦✦✦✦✦
Increases the wearer’s CRIT DMG by 32/40/48/56/64%.
Increases the wearer’s Skill and Ultimate DMG by 20/25/30/35/40%.
After the wearer uses their Skill or Ultimate, they gain Somnus Corpus.
Upon triggering a follow-up attack, Somnus Corpus will be consumed and the follow-up attack DMG increases by 48/60/72/84/96%.

Serval’s Best in Slot Light Cone.

Serval’s Ultimate packs a punch and this Light Cone will buff Serval’s CRIT DMG, Skill damage and Ultimate DMG even further.

Despite we can’t take advantage of the follow-up attack DMG, the buff that this Light Cone gives is already enough for Serval.

Night on the Milky Way
✦✦✦✦✦
For every enemy on the field, increases the wearer’s ATK by 8/10/12/14/16%, up to 5 times.
When an enemy is inflicted with Weakness Break, the wearer’s DMG increases by 24/30/36/42/48% for 1 turn.

Serval can apply Shock without having to break the enemy’s weakness break first, and since it scales on Serval’s ATK, this Light Cone can also increase the shock damage.

Make the World Clamor
✦✦✦✦
The wearer regenerates 20/23/26/29/32 Energy immediately upon entering battle, and increases Ultimate DMG by 24/30/36/42/48%.

Serval’s biggest damage outcome comes from her Ultimate, so this Light Cone, which is also Serval’s signature Light Cone will help her dish out big damage from her Ultimate.

Data Bank
✦✦✦
Increases the wearer’s Ultimate DMG by 24/30/36/42/48%.

The Budget F2P friendly version of Serval’s signature Light Cone. Very useful as it’s quite easier to gain duplicate of this three star Light Cone, so you can potentially even have max superimpose of this Light Cone too.

Sagacity
✦✦✦
When the wearer unleashes their Ultimate, increases ATK by 24/30/36/42/48% for 2 turn(s).

The alternate F2P Light Cone that you can also use if you prioritize over Serval’s DoT damage over her Ultimate damage.

Honkai Star Rail Serval Best Relics

As a lightning Sub DPS character that scales on her ATK, we highly recommend you to go with Lightning Relics or ATK Relics, which the former has a better damage outcome. If you don’t have 4 set Lightning Relics yet, you can also go with 2 set Lightning 2 set ATK Relics.

Band of Sizzling Thunder
2 Set: Increases Lightning DMG by 10%.
4 Set: When the wearer uses Skill, increases the wearer’s ATK by 25% for 1 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%.

*Choose two of these if you don’t have the full sets above.
Band of Sizzling Thunder
Musketeer of Wild Wheat
Thief of Shooting Meteor

2 Set: (Sizzling Thunder)Increases Lightning DMG by 10%.
2 Set: (Wild Wheat) ATK increases by 10%.
2 Set: (Shooting Meteor)Increases Break Effect by 20%.

Honkai Star Rail Serval Best Planar Ornaments

Serval’s Planar Ornament has a lot of options that you can use. You can go with increasing her CRIT Rate first, or you can also go with increasing her ATK. Despite it’s not really mandatory, you can also go with Energy Regeneration Rate too, but we don’t really suggest you to use Energy Regeneration.

All in all, Serval’s Ultimate damage will be more superior than her shock damage, so we would recommend you to increase her CRIT Rate over her ATK first. But if you want to focus on her shock kit, you should also increase her Effect Hit Rate since the enemy also have their own RES that will potentially prevent you from applying the shock effect to the enemy.

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%.

Honkai Star Rail Serval Best Team Comp

As an AoE Sub DPS, you can pair Serval with Destruction Path or Hunt Path characters to have a strong DPS to help you dish out big damage. You can also pair Serval with Harmony Path and Abundance Path to have support and stability in your team. With Serval, it’s also very flexible to use characters that can counter the enemy’s weakness element.

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

Summary

And that’s how you get the best Honkai Star Rail Serval 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. Apply a lot of shocks to the enemies and casting her Ultimate to extend the shock duration is Serval’s bread and butter. Invest a lot in her ATK to further increase her DoT damage, and invest in Lightning and CRIT to increase her Ultimate DMG even beyond. By doing this, you will definitely see Serval shines through the match.
