Best Hook Honkai Star Rail build: Relics, Light Cones, Eidolons, and Abilities
Hook is a 4-star Fire Destruction unit in Honkai Star Rail, who can be exceptionally strong when using the best build, and is probably the second most potent Fire unit behind Asta.
Hook’s biggest strength is that she can deal DoT damage which always comes in handy to break shields and take down enemies on low health in the game. Apart from that, since she is a single-target unit, Hook can function quite well as a boss slayer, especially when using the best possible build.
However, Hook is a resource-heavy unit and requires good Light Cones and Relics to perform optimally. Hence, here is our guide for the best Hook build in Honkai Star Rail including the best Relics, Light Cones, Eidolons, and Abilities.
