The best Sampo build in Honkai Star Rail can easily inflict Wind Shear on multiple enemies. Here are the best Relics and Light Cones in addition to the character’s Eidolons and Skills.

Sampo is a 4-star Wind character on the Path of Nihility. In battle, he is great at applying Wind Shear damage to several opponents and whittling down the enemy with DoT damage. Currently, the only playable Wind options in Honkai Star Rail are Sampo, Dan Heng, and Bronya.

Sampo’s kit focuses on DoT effects on multiple targets and breaking the Wind weaknesses of enemies quickly, giving you an edge over the enemy that characters focused on raw damage can’t provide.

If you want to build Sampo, here’s what you need to know about the Wind character in Honkai Star Rail.
