Huohuo can heal quite effectively in Honkai Star Rail
  • Basic Attack – Stormcaller: Deals Wind DMG equal to 25% of Huohuo’s Max HP to a target enemy.
  • Skill – Talisman: Protection: Dispels 1 debuff(s) from an ally and immediately restores HP to them equal to 14% of Huohuo’s Max HP plus 140. At the same time, restores HP to the target ally’s adjacent allies equal to 11.2% of Huohuo’s Max HP plus 112.
  • Ultimate – Tail: Spiritual Domination: Regenerates Energy for all allies (excluding this character) by an amount equal to 15.0% of their respective Max Energy. At the same time, increases their ATK by 24.0% for 2 turn(s).
  • Talent Possession: Ethereal Metaflow: After using her Skill, Huohuo gains Divine Provision, lasting for 2 turn(s). This duration decreases by 1 turn at the start of Huohuo’s each turn. If Huohuo has Divine Provision when an ally’s turn starts or when an ally uses their Ultimate, restores HP for that ally by an amount equal to 3.0% of Huohuo’s Max HP plus 30. At the same time, every ally with 50% HP or lower gets healed once. When Divine Provision is triggered to heal allies, dispel 1 debuff(s) from that ally. This effect can be triggered up to 6 time(s). Using the skill again resets the effect’s trigger count.
  • Technique – Fiend: Impeachment of Evil: Huohuo terrorizes surrounding enemies, afflicting Horror-Struck on them. Enemies in Horror-Struck will flee away from Huohuo for 10 second(s). When entering battle with enemies in Horror-Struck, there is a 100% base chance of reducing every single enemy’s ATK by 25% for 2 turn(s).

Bonus Ability

  • The Cursed One: The chance to resist Crowd Control Debuffs increases by 35%
  • Stress Reaction to Horror: When her Talent is triggered to heal allies, Huohuo regenerates 1 Energy.

Huohuo’s Eidolons enhance the potential in Honkai Star Rail
  • Level 1 – Anchored to Vessel, Specters Nestled: The duration of the Divine Provision generated by the talent is extended by 1 turn, and all of our party’s speed is increased by 12% when Huohuo has the aforementioned buff.
  • Level 2 – Sealed in Tail, Wraith Subdued: If an ally is critically injured while possessing Divine Provision, they aren’t downed, and Huohuo instead instantly provides healing to them, restoring HP equal to 50% of their max HP.

Best Huohuo Team Comp in Honkai Star Rail

Jingliu functions exceptionally well with Huohuo in Honkai Star Rail

Huohuo is a support and can function with a wide range of units. However, the best characters you can pair her with are Jingliu, Bronya, and Silver Wolf. In this team, Jingliu is the primary DPS whom Huohuo can heal and cleanse.

Additionally, Bronya and Silver Wolf will enhance the damage output of Jingliu, making it a powerful team to work with. Jingliu will also benefit from the ATK boost that she will get from Huohuo’s ultimate ability.

You can also replace Jingliu with Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae. In that case, you must run Tingyun in place of Bronya. Silver Wolf can maintain her spot without any issues. In case you are wondering, she is not a good pair for Blade.

This is because, even though her heal can function with Blade, Huohuo’s ATK boost is useless due to the HP scaling damage of the former.
