Honkai: Star Rail is sure to turn players on their heads with a unique system that is meant to feel like an open world but is entirely relying on turn-based combat like a traditional RPG. Although, the funny thing about our first starter team is that we actually do not have one of the most key ingredients when it comes to starting an RPG: a healer.
Where are all the Healers in Honkai: Star Rail?
In Honkai: Star Rail, each character follows a Path and that Path dictates their role in combat. Although the terms may be foreign, their skills will not be–Preservation for Shielders, Nihility for Debuffers, and Harmony for Raising Skills among your own party. The Path that healers follow in Honkai: Star Rail is called the Path of Abundance. So each character that follows that Path will be a healer.
Thus far, the only Pathfinders in Abundance are Bailu, Natasha, and Luocha, however, he will not be available until later updates. With Honkai: Star Rail still being new, it may be some time before we have a good selection of Healers, until then, here is how to get the ones that are currently available. You will find that it may not be as hard as you think.

Where to Get Bailu in Honkai: Star Rail
Now, let us not kid around. Getting Bailu will actually prove to be quite difficult given that she is a Five-Star Character. But she is available on quite a few banners. For all starting players, there will be the Starter Event Banner, which will guarantee that you get a Five-Star character within 50 pulls or less. You are also able to purchase a 10-pull with only eight Star Rail Passes instead of a full 10.
She is also available on the Standard Event Warp Banner. As one of the original Five-Stars in Honkai: Star Rail, you can either get her when losing a 50/50 to a Character Event Warp Banner or when wishing on the Standard Banner although your chances can be quite slim given that the odds will be competing with Five-Star Light Cones and other characters.
While you may have your heart set out on trying for another character, do not dismiss Bailu just yet because of her small stature. Currently, she is one of the strongest healers in the game with the ability to revive characters almost immediately after they have fallen in the midst of battle. If you find that you get a character that you are not so hyped about then it may just be worth a reroll in Honkai: Star Rail to see what other characters you can get. A Bailu just might save your life!
Where to Get Natasha in Honkai: Star Rail
Natasha is a much easier goal in Honkai: Star Rail for your healer since she is a Four-Star. And while there are quite a few units that you get in all of the banners, Natasha is indeed one of them. Though it may be quite difficult unless she is part of the Character Event Banner then your chances are greatly increased.
But the best part about Natasha is that you will actually gain her as a free unit for merely progressing the story in the game and completing missions. Upon competitions of the Trailblazer Mission, “Lying in Rust,” like Herta, you will gain a free Natasha to add to your team compositions.

It is certainly difficult to gain a healer in this game, but there are plenty of options around it whether to use Preservation Characters to help shield you or to wait it out in the story long enough to get Natasha. Who knows, you might just get lucky enough to get Bailu!
