Honkai: Star Rail Version 1.6 Unveils Enhanced Tools and Features


HoYoverse recently unveiled updates to various HoYoLab tools and features tailored for Honkai: Star Rail Version 1.6, significantly enhancing players’ ability to track their progress within the game. This update coincides with the introduction of new characters like Ruan Mei and Dr. Ratio in Honkai: Star Rail.

Version 1.6 of Honkai: Star Rail reintroduces players to the Herta Space Station, where they join Ruan Mei, a new 5-star playable character. Players engage with the Trailblazer to confront a mysterious anomaly causing chaos in the Seclusion Zone. The update offers limited-time events, including the “Critter Pick,” where players nurture peculiar lifeforms for valuable rewards. Further events will unfold in the second phase of the update, offering opportunities to obtain characters like Dr. Ratio for free.

The HoYoLab tools and features updated for Version 1.6 encompass several enhancements:

  1. Interactive Map: The Interactive Map now includes comprehensive information about the Seclusion Zone. It allows players to track landmarks, objectives, and critical content in real-time, enabling a seamless exploration experience.
  2. Battle Records: This tool has been updated to accommodate data related to Version 1.6 events such as “Critter Pick” and “Virtual Scentventure.” It serves as a widget for players to monitor Trailblazer Power recovery, event progress, treasures unlocked, and other essential in-game details.
  3. Leveling Calculator: The Leveling Calculator now supports tracking ascension and level-up material requirements for new characters introduced in Version 1.6, including Ruan Mei, Dr. Ratio, and Xueyi.
  4. HoYoWiki and Lineup Assistant: Entries for the new characters have been added to both HoYoWiki and Lineup Assistant. Players can access detailed character information and optimize their team compositions for end-game challenges through Lineup Assistant.

Moreover, the check-in feature available in Version 1.6 rewards players with an extra 100 Stellar Jades after three consecutive days. These jades can be utilized to summon from Event Warps, contributing to the player’s progress within the game.

Looking ahead, Honkai: Star Rail’s Version 2.0 is anticipated to introduce more HoYoLab tools and features alongside the addition of the new world, Penacony. Speculations from leaks suggest the arrival of a free 4-star character in this major update, further fueling the anticipation within the Honkai: Star Rail community.
