Honkai: Star Rail’s 1.3 Livestream Banners, Codes & More

I’m not excited about the bugs, but everything else looks pretty cool!

Honkai: Star Rail’s 1.3 Livestream is here and there is so much to unpack in this hour-long video. Not only do Trailblazers get a full glimpse about the type of kits the Five-Stars will be kicking with, but there are large events coming their way, some quality-of-life fixes, emotes in our chat, and many other exciting quests!

Codes for the 1.3 Honkai: Star Rail Livestream

First thing first, be sure to redeem the livestream codes since Hoyoverse has been getting really stingy about their time limit, and if you are any later than 12 hours, then they will expire. Take it from someone who knows, so be sure to copy these codes, and if you need a refresher, check out how to redeem codes in Honkai: Star Rail.


Character Warp Banners Coming in Update 1.3 for Honkai: Star Rail

Onto the meat of the livestream, for the Character Event Warp Banners, Trailblazers will finally be able to pull for Imbibitor Lunae – Dan Heng in the first phase of 1.3 and Fu Xuan in the second phase, where our new Four-Star Lynx will also see her first banner debut. 

Imbibitor Lunae – Dan Heng

Dan Heng’s Five-Star form Imbibitor Lunae will feature as an Imaginary Destruction character who has a wide arrangement of attacks that include an enhanced Basic Attack, a beautifully rendered and animated ultimate that attacks everything on the field and a dragon that plays fetch, so what more could one ask for? Alongside his banner, we can expect to see the four stars Yukong, Asta, and March 7th.

Yukong is a fantastic Imaginary Support character who can increase Attack, Crit Rate, and Crit Damage while also dealing some pretty high-hitting singular damage to one enemy, thanks to her ultimate. Asta is a wonderful Harmony character who is great for breaking down toughness on Fire-Weak enemies, but her Ultimate is handy in that it increases Speed for the entire party. March 7th is Dan Heng’s dear friend, so naturally, she’ll accompany him. Not only is she great for putting on a study shield to one character, but her ultimate can attack multiple enemies on the field with Ice damage. 

Fu Xuan

Speaking of beautiful animations, Fu Xuan, as a Quantum Preservation character, has some really stunning movesets from her Technique to her Ultimate. While she may be a preservation character, her skillset primarily revolves around reducing damage for her party and taking the damage to herself when others are hit. However, you won’t need to worry too much about her health since parts of her kits will heal her when she gets too low, so Fu Xuan is already proving to be a rather unique Preservation character to look forward to!

With her, our newest character Lynx, Hook, and Pela will be on the second phase of the 1.3 Character Banners. Lynx will be a Quantum Abundance character, and her kit is all about healing her team as well as getting rid of buffs by producing a rather large pill from her bag of knick-knacks. If you ever wondered where the term horse pill comes from, look no further than the one Lynx prescribes us. Hook is a Fire Destruction character and has a strange ultimate that reminds me of another Pyro-happy character from Genshin that deals a lot of damage to a singular character. And Pela is an Ice Nihility character who can not only deal a lot of Ice damage but reduce the defense of enemies so your DPS characters can hit enemies for even bigger damage.

Events Coming in Update 1.3 for Honkai: Star Rail

Trailblaze Mission “Obsequies Performed, A Long Road Ahead”

Previously cut short, Trailblazers can expect to see the fallout of all the events that had occurred on the Xianzhou with Phantylia’s appearance, the drastic changes made to the Xianzhou that affected many people, and the epic conclusion of the elusive society seeking immortality on the Luofu. Now, Trailblazers will get to experience the clean-up experience of the many characters we’ve grown to know and love getting back to rebuilding their society back to a relative norm. We’ll probably see the conclusion of our adventures here on the Xianzhou, and excitement can only ensure about what worlds will await us next!

Aurum Alley’s Hustle and Bustle

We return to a quest that is very similar to the Everwinter Museum Quest, where we help to revitalize the Xianzhou’s place of business, restore shops, and ensure their productivity. Trailblazers can expect much of the same mechanics where a long event will be played out with plenty of rewards to gain for the 1.3 Banners! Not only will we be receiving a Free Sushang as a reward as well, but we’ll be getting one of the new features in Honkai: Star Rail, the Wallpaper, which will change the image behind the player’s Menu in a mock image of a Wallpaper on a Phone. Hopefully, in the future, we can expect to unlock all kinds of new adorable and artistic wallpapers from events and other quests!

Simulated Universe: The Swarm Disaster

Herta and Screwllum are back at it again with researchers Ruan Mei and Stephen Lloyd to make the Simulated Universe infested with bugs–no, they are trying a new type of module that expands upon the Simulated Universe we grew to be comfortable with. But it involves bugs, specifically the Imperator Insectorum Tayzzronth, the Aeon of Propagation, and apparently, they really liked bugs because all I see is a giant insect on my screen, and I am personally not a huge fan. However, this event will feature some new gameplay where Trailblazers will explore a board and utilize Dice to explore a string of domain sites you may recognize from the previous Simulated Universe. While using the Paths to improve stats and enable buffs, the Simulated Universe will also introduce the Path of Propagation to our normal run of Simulated Universe, featuring new buffs and resistances for those who adore exploring these mechanics.

Space Station Task Force

Using the characters in our roster, Trailblazers will be expected to help out researchers and lackeys around the Herta Space Station by lending out characters to run special errands. Having a wide variety of characters can help in this case, but if you do not have enough of one Path, you can always use your friend’s Support characters to help you fill in some slots for added bonus. 

Planar Fissure and Garden of Plenty

Double reward events will also be returning: Planar Fissure is a special event where Trailblazers will be able to claim double the amount of Planar Ornaments they receive when completing the Simulated Universe. Garden of Plenty is for the Calyx Flowers dotted around the universe of Honkai: Star Rail that’ll grant double the Golden or Crimson rewards you get for completing those challenges. This means double the Coin, double the Level-Up Material, and double the Trace Material, and with the new characters coming out, this is going to be a nice way to gain the items they need with less hassle. 

New Bosses for New Characters

Because Hoyoverse doesn’t want you farming early, we are also seeing two new bosses for our two new characters where Shape of Puppetry will drop Suppressing Edict, ascension material for Imbibitor Lunae – Dan Heng and Shape of Abomination will drop Nail of the Ape, ascension material for Fu Xuan. 

Gift of Odyssey

With the new patch, Trailblazers will also see the return of a free 10 Pull in the form of multiple Special Star Rail Passes being available over a course of a week. This will be introduced during Imbibitor Lunae’s run, but you can also save it for later when Fu Xuan graces the Banner.

Quality Fixes Coming in Update 1.3 for Honkai: Star Rail

Trailblazer Power System Optimization

Trailblazers will get an increase to their daily Trailblazer Power from the current 180 to 240 in the 1.3 Update, and a System will be implemented called Reserved Trailblaze Power. This will allow for Trailblaze Power that hits max to begin culminating a certain percentage of Trailblaze Power so that if you miss a day, you will not miss out on the Trailblaze Power you didn’t use. 

Friend Organization 

It’s hard to separate your friends from your best friends, so prepare to put your favorites on speed dial with this new update. It’ll help make your interface look a little clean and put your priority friends at the top of the list!

Chat Emotes!!

Finally, after 84 years, Honkai: Star Rail has released the stickers from the basement of their Twitter Page and will be implementing them into the chat system to send back and forth with your friends! You may already recognize that stickers do exist when getting messages from characters in-game, but now you too will be able to use them when talking to your friends online!

Companion Quests Coming in Update 1.3 for Honkai: Star Rail

Additional quests coming to 1.3 will be Companion Quests, special missions where you get to learn more about the people in your party and in the world of Honkai: Star Rail that may finally solve some mysteries to our many questions surrounding some of our current characters. We will be seeing these next Companion Missions for Dan Heng, March 7th, Lynx, and Luka!

  • The Dragon Returns Home
  • Total Recall
  • Farther Than the Snow Plans
  • Mo Cuishle
