After completing the Simulated Universe a couple of times, players can get Herta Bonds, which can be used to buy Light Cones and other items from Herta’s Store. The store also sells items that can be used to Superimpose the Light Cones, making them even stronger. If you are confused about which is better than others, this guide will help you decide.
Here are the best Light Cones from Herta’s Store in Honkai: Star Rail.
Best Light Cones From Herta’s Store
Herta’s Store can be accessed through the options in the Simulated Universe. It is the only store in the game that sells 5-star Light Cones that can be bought just by playing the Simulated Universe. The store sells four 5-star Light Cones and Superimposer, a custom item from Herta’s Store that can be used to superimpose the Light Cones. Each Light Cone costs 8 Herta Bonds, and the Superimposer costs 2.
The store only sells Light Cones of four paths: Destruction, Hunt, Preservation, and Nihility, which was added in the version 1.3 update. These are the Light Cones ranked in order of which you should buy from the store.
Cruising in the Stellar Sea
The Hunt Light Cone, Cruising in the Stellar Sea, is the best one at Herta’s Store for several reasons. The Light Cone will give a strong Crit stat, which improves with each Superimposition tier. Cruising in the Stellar Sea should be your first pick because every Honkai: Star Rail account will have a Hunt character, the main DPS in the game. Moreover, this Light Cone would be a perfect choice for the character.
At Superimposition 5, the Light Cone has a 16% CRIT Rate and will give an extra 16% CRIT Rate against enemies below 50% HP. In addition to that, it will increase the character’s ATK by 40% for two turns after defeating an enemy. Most Hunt characters will defeat enemies quickly, so the bonus ATK will have decent uptime.
So, the Cruising in the Stellar Sea should be your best pick from Herta’s Store as the best Light Cone because of how much it will boost your character’s damage.
On the Fall of an Aeon
On the Fall of an Aeon is a Destruction Path Light Cone, which provides an ATK bonus and a damage bonus on the break effect. When the wearer inflicts Weakness Break on enemies, the wearer’s damage increases by 12% for 2 turns. However, this damage bonus is conditional because the break effect has an uptime issue on Bosses because it is hard to inflict a Break effect on Boss enemies.
On the Fall of an Aeon is a great Light Cone for characters like Clara, Hook, and Arlan. This Light Cone can be used on the upcoming limited-time character Blade, however, his damage scales on HP%. Arlan, the 4-star Lightning character, can use this Light Cone perfectly because of its passive.
Texture of Memories
Texture of Memories belongs to the Preservation Path and can be a solid option for characters with a shield and taunt. This Light Cone will increase the wearer’s Effect RES by 8% and can provide a shield equivalent to 16% of their max HP for 2 turns, reducing damage from enemies.
This Light Cone is a good option for characters who can provide a shield because it will significantly reduce the damage you take from enemies. Characters like Fu Xuan, who scales off HP, can utilize this Light Cone properly. Texture of Memories can be used on the Fire Trailblazer to help them get more tanky whenever they use their taunt, and it will increase their resistance to damage.
Solitary Healing is a Light Cone from Nihility Path, released in the version 1.3 update of Honkai: Star Rail. This Light Cone increases the wearer’s Break Effect, DoT ability and regenerates energy after defeating enemies. The only drawback of using this Light Cone is that the buff does not apply if you cannot defeat enemies.
This Light Cone has a conditional effect where it will increase the wearer’s DoT(Damage over Time) after using their Ultimate. The efficient way to utilize this ability is to use the character’s Ultimate to break enemy shields for maximum damage dealt by DoT. Solitary Healing is a great option if your team requires a DoT damage dealer and a free weapon for most DoT output.
Hopefully, this guide can help you choose the perfect Light Cone for your character, although you can get all the Light Cones from Herta’s Store if you play the Simulated Universe enough times.
