When you first load into the game and start the tutorial, you’ll have limited options for navigating your menus and maps. For the most part, you’ll learn how to run around and engage in combat, picking up a few playable characters along the way. However, after some time, you’ll begin to spot Space Anchors, floating blue crystals that heal your team.

Or, well, that’s what they do at first. You’ll discover their main feature as you continue through the main story!

Shortly after finishing the first Simulated Universe quest and having a few chats with the mission’s NPCs, you’ll find a brief tutorial telling you how to fast travel. Using these blue Space Anchors, you can head into your in-game map and warp to any other anchor you’ve previously visited.

As a bonus, you’ll also learn how to turn on auto battles in Honkai: Star Rail around this time.

While it does take a bit of time to get to this point, you can rest assured that it shouldn’t take much longer than a couple of hours.

If you don’t get distracted easily by gacha and character trials, you’ll probably get here faster than I did.
