Honkai Star Acheron: Unleashing the Power of Lightning

Honkai Star Rail, the popular mobile game developed by miHoYo, is known for its diverse cast of characters with unique abilities. One of the most highly anticipated additions to the game is Acheron, a 5-star Lightning character on the Path of Nihility. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore everything you need to know about Acheron, from her background to her abilities and the materials required to unlock her full potential.

Who is Acheron in Honkai Star Rail?

Acheron is a mysterious character in Honkai Star Rail, known as a Galaxy Ranger. While not much is known about her background, some speculate that she could be the reincarnation of The Herrscher of Thunder from Honkai Impact 3rd. With her long sword and lightning-infused attacks, Acheron roams the cosmos, ready to unleash her devastating power on any enemies that stand in her way.

Acheron's Abilities in Honkai Star Rail

As a Lightning character, Acheron excels at dealing damage and building up stacks to unleash powerful attacks. Let's take a closer look at her abilities:

Basic Attack - Trilateral Wiltcross

Acheron's basic attack, Trilateral Wiltcross, allows her to deal lightning damage equal to a percentage of her attack to a single target enemy. This attack also inflicts Crimson Knot, a debuff that can be stacked for increased damage.

Skill - Octobolt Flash

Octobolt Flash is Acheron's skill, which grants her additional stacks of Slashed Dream and inflicts multiple stacks of Crimson Knot on a single target enemy. This skill also deals lightning damage to the target enemy and adjacent enemies.

Ultimate - Slashed Dream Cries in Red

Slashed Dream Cries in Red is Acheron's ultimate ability. It triggers Rainblade, a lightning-infused attack that deals damage to a single target enemy and removes Crimson Knot stacks. The ultimate also activates Stygian Resurge, a powerful lightning attack that hits all enemies and removes all Crimson Knots. During the ultimate, Crimson Knot cannot be inflicted on enemies.

Talent - Atop Rainleaf Hangs Oneness

Acheron's talent, Atop Rainleaf Hangs Oneness, allows her to unleash her ultimate when Slashed Dream reaches a certain number of stacks. This ultimate reduces enemies' Toughness and weakens their resistance. Additionally, whenever Acheron or her allies inflict debuffs on enemies, she gains stacks of Slashed Dream and inflicts Crimson Knot on the enemy target.

Technique - Quadrivalent Ascendance

Quadrivalent Ascendance is Acheron's overworld ability. It allows her to immediately attack an enemy, gaining stacks of Slashed Dream and dealing lightning damage to all enemies. This ability also triggers the Lightning Weakness Break effect and inflicts Crimson Knot on a random enemy.

Passive Abilities - Red Ogre, The Abyss, Thunder Core

Acheron has three passive abilities that enhance her combat prowess. Red Ogre grants her additional stacks of Slashed Dream and applies Crimson Knot to a random enemy at the start of battle. The Abyss increases the damage of Acheron's basic attack, skill, and ultimate when there are other characters following the Path of Nihility in the team. Thunder Core enhances Acheron's damage when her ultimate hits enemies with Crimson Knot, stacking up to three times.
