Similar to Hoyoverse’s other games, upon reaching a certain point in the Battlepass or Nameless Honor, players are able to pick a Four-Star Lightcone to equip onto a character. Now, this doesn’t occur unless players have paid for Nameless Glory which runs at about 9.99 USD. But upon purchasing and reaching Level 30, there are seven options in the running for the Battlepass, one for each Path. So which one is the best? You only can make this decision so carefully, so let’s visit the stats and effects of each Lightcone and see what’s best worth your money!

Which Light Cone Should You Choose from the Battlepass in Honkai: Star Rail?

So, what do I think is the best Light Cone out of all of these depicted in the Nameless Glory? Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds (Harmony) is the best Light Cone in Honkai: Star Rail’s Paid Battlepass. Hilariously enough, if you have to put that many restrictions on a Light Cone then it’s bound to be good, isn’t it? Sure, it’s a doozy of a read, but let me tell you, this has to be the best Harmony Light cone and can fit onto just about any Harmony character.

The reason why Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds (Harmony) is so good is because it can boost stats by, yes a small margin, but randomly and increase the allies’ stats while your Harmony character increases them more. Not only that, but it is good for every Harmony character. An issue I was seeing with the other Lightcones is that their passive effects wouldn’t work all that great with every character in that Path. Not a determining factor, but a significant one. There aren’t a lot of great Four-Star Lightcones for Harmony and even the Three-Stars are kind of meh. This is why having the Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds (Harmony) is sure to give you the best results for your money spent on the Battlepass.

Close seconds in the running We Will Meet Again (Nihility) and Nowhere to Run (Destruction). These light cones prove to be very good for the characters of that path, however, there are just as many other options in those paths that you can choose from aside from the Battlepass Lightcones. I like having extra damage when it comes to using Sampo in battle alongside his Wind Shear. And given that Destruction characters like Blade and Arlan will lose HP whenever they use certain attacks, it certainly helps that they can regain some of their HP so they don’t end up unaliving themselves in the midst of battle. 

It can be really hard to find the right Lightcones for your characters that’ll help maximize their potential in battle. And don’t even get me started on the effort of leveling them up alongside character levels. Unless you’re like me and just got a lot of lightcones dropped on their head. I do find that I have difficulty with Harmony Light Cones. Asta’s was… the most egregious thus far, so being able to move my Harmony Light Cones around really helped me find the one that would really make her shine. And Tingyun can absolutely demolish with this Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds.
