Guide to Hunting Trotters in Where is the Mystery Trotter Event in Honkai: Star Rail

Screenshot by Prima Games

This event is pretty self-explanatory: you get the clue from Regin at the Goethe Hotel, decipher it, head to the area, expose the Trotter, and defeat it. Below, you’ll see the hints that you are given as well as the location of the Trotter, but here is also something to keep in mind, Trotters are notorious for running away. So it’s best to plan your team around the Trotter that you are hunting down.

The best way to keep a Trotter in a battle is by constantly breaking down its Toughness, this will cause it to enter a confused state where, once its turn comes back around, it’ll return to its Scared Position. If you are unable to break the Shield within a turn, the Trotter will enter its Run Phase. The tricky part of the Run Phase is that the Elemental Damage you were doing before will no longer work as it becomes invulnerable. 

The team members you’re going to want to bring along are those who have the elements Physical, Imaginary, and Quantum. Pathfinders that you’ll find helpful are those who belong in The Hunt or are great at Single Target Damage, such as Yukong. Imaginary is really good for hunting Trotters since it can break down their Shields easily, trap the Trotter in Imprison if Imaginary breaks their Toughness, and it’ll also slow down their movements so you can get more hits in before the Trotter’s second turn.
