Best Seele Light Cones in Honkai Star Rail

Seele’s best Light Cones increase her CRIT rate.

The best Seele Light Cone is her signature one In The Night. This increases her CRIT rate by 18%, and will also increase her basic and Skill ATK by 6% for every 10 SPD that exceeds 100, making it a perfect combination when paired with her SPD buffing Skill Sheathed Blade.

As a 5-star Light Cone, In The Night can be difficult to unlock as it’s solely dependent on players’ luck with banner pulls. Thankfully, there are some 3 and 4-star Light Cones that work as great alternatives for Seele.

Only Silence Remains is a 4-star Light Cone that increases the wearer’s ATK by 16%. If there are 2 or fewer enemies on the battlefield, the wearer’s CRIT rate will also be increased by 12%.

Arrows is a solid 3-star Light Cone that increases the wearer’s CRIT rate at the beginning of a fight for the first 3 turns, with Seele’s DMG output and SPD this combination should make quick work of defeating non-boss enemies.

Best Seele Relics

The best Seele Relic in Honkai Star Rail is Genius of Bright Stars. Not only does this Relic increase her Quantum DMG by 10% but it also ignores 25% of a target’s defense if they have a Quantum weakness, allowing Seele to swiftly defeat enemies.

As a result, Genius of Bright Stars is a top-tier option when it comes to creating the best Seele build in Honkai Star Rail. You can find the full stat breakdown of the Relic set below:

  • 2-piece: Increases Quantum DMG by 10%.
  • 4-piece: When the wearer attacks enemies with Quantum Weakness, ignores 25% DEF.

Rutiliant Arena is the best Ornament option for Seele. This Ornament increases the wearer’s CRIT Rate by 8%, and when the CRIT Rate reaches 70% or more, Basic ATK and Skill DMG are boosted by 20%.

The best team comp for Seele involves generating skill points for her to use.

The best team comp for Seele in Honkai Star Rail utilizes Bronya, Tingyun, and Fu Xuan. As Seele is a character that thrives on using her Skill in combat she’ll have to sustain plenty of skill points in battle to be at her most effective.

Bronya can grant Seele extra turns with her Skill, in addition to increasing the ATK of all team members. Bailu is a good alternative as one of the few healers in the game.

Tingyun is a great support option for Seele’s team comp, as she can provide high DMG buffs as well as a lot of energy for Ultimates.

Finally, Fu Xuan can also decrease the amount of damage given to allies, effectively defending Seele as she unleashes devastating attacks. Fire Trailblazer is a viable alternative to those who couldn’t pull Fu Xuan on her banner.

So, there you have it, that’s everything you need to know about creating the best Seele build in Honkai Star Rail, including the Relics, Light Cones, and team comp you should use.
