Best Dan Heng Honkai Star Rail build: Relics, Light Cones, Eidolons, and Abilities
Dan Heng is a Wind Hunt unit in Honkai Star Rail who can be obtained for free at the very beginning of the game. However, there is no reason to ignore him as his single-target damage is more than enough for Dan Heng to deal with end-game bosses especially when you’re using the best build.
