This Honkai: Star Rail Imbibitor Lunae Build Unleashes Dan Heng’s Full Potential
Enter the dragon.
While Dan Heng has been a reliable friend to the Trailblazer since the start of Honkai: Star Rail, his full potential is finally released in version 1.3. Transformed into his true form of Vidyadhara lineage and taking the title Imbibitor Lunae, Dan Heng has quickly turned into one of (if not the) best DPS characters available in HoYoverse’s turn-based RPG.
For those who are lucky to add him to the roster before his banner ends, he is a welcome addition to any team. Here’s how to make the most of Dan Heng - Imbibitor Lunae by building him properly.
How to Build Dan Heng - Imbibitor Lunae in Honkai: Star Rail
Imbibitor Lunae transforms Dan Heng into a five-star Imaginary Destruction character whose main potential in combat is high DPS output. He does most of his damage through single-target attacks but has plenty of potential when it comes to AoE damage as well. The key to using Imbibitor Lunae in combat is to manage his SP so you can effectively use all your skills as much as possible.
The main stats you are looking to increase for an effective Imbibitor Lunae build are his CRIT Rate, CRIT DMG, and ATK. With the right combination of Light Cone, Relics, and Ornaments you can reach new heights of damage output.
Best Light Cones for Dan Heng - Imbibitor Lunae
As a five-star character, Imbibitor Lunae has a Signature Light Cone available on the Brilliant Fixation limited banner. “Brighter Than the Sun” has the benefit of increasing both Imbibitor Lunae’s CRIT Rate as well as ATK. Another good five-star option is “On the Fall of an Aeon”
Though if you haven’t had enough luck to gather these five-star Light Cones then “Under The Blue Sky” or “The Moles Welcome You” are both great four-star alternatives that complement Imbibitor Lunae’s skills.
5-Star Light Cones
- Brighter Than the Sun — Increases the wearer’s CRIT Rate by 30%. When the wearer uses their Basic ATK, they will gain one stack of Dragon’s Call for two turns. Each stack of Dragon’s Call increases the wearer’s ATK by 30% and Energy Regeneration Rate by 10%. Dragon’s Call can be stacked up to two times.
- On the Fall of an Aeon —Whenever the wearer attacks, increase their ATK by 16% in this battle, up to four times. When the wearer inflicts Weakness Break on enemies, the wearer’s DMG increases by 24% for two turn(s).
4-Star Light Cones
- Under The Blue Sky — Increases the wearer’s ATK by 32%. When the wearer defeats an enemy, the wearer’s CRIT Rate increases by 24% for three turns.
- The Moles Welcome You — For every Basic ATK, Skill, and Ultimate used by the wearer, the wearer gains one stack of Mischievous. Each stack increases the wearer’s ATK by 24%.
Best Relics for Dan Heng - Imbibitor Lunae
When it comes to Relics for Imbibitor Lunae, the best option is to boost his ATK and DMG stats in order to give his skills a more powerful punch that can knock down enemies much faster.

It will increase his Imaginary DMG by 10% as well as increase CRIT Rate by 10% when attacking debuffed enemies and increase CRIT DMG by 20% when attacking Imprisoned enemies
Alternatively, you can opt for a two-piece Wastelander of Banditry Desert set and pair it with a two-piece Musketeer of Wild Wheat set. This will increase Imbibitor Lunae’s Imaginary DMG and ATK by 10%.
Best Ornaments for Dan Heng - Imbibitor Lunae
As for Ornaments, there is one ideal option to equip on Imbibitor Lunae— Rutilant. This Ornament set increases the wearer's CRIT Rate by 8% and when the wearer's current CRIT Rate reaches 70% or higher, the wearer's Basic ATK and Skill DMG increase by 20%.
