How Many Light Cones Are There In Honkai: Star Rail?

There are over 50 Light Cones currently in Honkai: Star Rail, with plans to increase the roster considerably in future updates. We’ll update this guide with each Light Cone release and place them into our ranking system. 

S Tier List

The best Light Cones in the game, and deemed the strongest when it comes to their abilities. We recommend trying to obtain an S-tier Light Cone as soon as possible.

A Tier List

Fantastic Light Cones and great replacements if you don’t manage to get your hands on an S tier. They can be used alongside S-tier Light Cones and can easily help you clear content.

B Tier List

Not the best in terms of strength but they’re good fillers at the start of the game. They can be used as a support choice to aid your A-tier and S-tier Light Cones.

C Tier List

It’s best to avoid placing these Light Cones in your party, especially if you want to clear content efficiently.

D Tier List

Not worth upgrading or using at all and should be avoided completely.
