Honkai Star Rail Version 1.6 Adds Ruan Mei, Dr. Ratio, and Xueyi

HoYoverse has announced that Honkai Star Rail Version 1.6 is coming on December 27.

Honkai Star Rail Version 1.6, entitled “Crown of the Mundane and Divine,” will unveil a fresh area: the Herta Space Station’s Seclusion Zone, and new playable characters: Madam Ruan Mei, Dr. Ratio, and Xueyi.

More importantly, once version Honkai Star Rail 1.6’s “Panta Rhei” event warp starts, every trailblazer who has unlocked the mail feature shall receive one limited five-star character, Dr. Ratio.

Here’s a look at the new characters coming in this update:

honkai star rail ruan mei

Madam Ruan Mei is a 5-star Ice-Type character following the Path of Harmony, and member 81 of the Genius Society. From the very beginning, her research has focused on biological science. Despite being one of the founders of the Simulated Universe, she seldom steps up to the plate. Her Skill, Strings Sing in Slow Twirls, can increase damage and Weakness Break’s efficiency of all allies. Ruan Mei has a knack for exploiting an enemy’s Weakness and great support for the Break Effect dealt by allies.

Another scholar called Dr. Ratio will also make his debut. He is a 5-star Imaginary-Type character following the Path of the Hunt, belonging to a different Nous-worshiping organization — the Intelligentsia Guild. As a rigorous academic researcher, Dr. Ratio pays close attention to his enemies’ debuffs during battle. The more debuffs the enemy has, the higher the chance of him launching a follow-up attack.

The last new character is Xueyi, a 4-star Quantum-Type character following the Path of Destruction, whose original body was replaced long ago with a permanent puppet system. This system was constructed for Xueyi on behalf of the Ten-Lords Commission. The Commission agreed that for every culprit Xueyi apprehended, she would be rewarded with a half day’s wakespan. Like her sister Hanya, Xueyi is a formidable presence on the battlefield. Her Ultimate, Divine Castigation, can deal Quantum DMG to a single target and Toughness depletion that ignores Weakness Types. The more Toughness depleted, the greater the DMG!

Honkai Star Rail Version 1.6 is coming on December 27.
