Honkai Star: Rail heavily emphasizes paths and elements. The two characteristics tie together. At the start of the game, the protagonist you select is a Trailblazer character who is locked into the Destruction path and reliant on Physical attacks. That condition can change if you want it to. Here is our guide on how to get the Fire Trailblzer in Honkai: Star Rail.
Note: We’ll have a Honkai: Star Rail guides and features hub soon, so stay tuned.
How to get the Fire Trailblazer in Honkai Star Rail
To acquire the Fire Trailblazer in Honkai: Star Rail, you must complete the Roads to the Past Have Long Been Closed sub-mission through to its conclusion. While doing so, you must also have the Trailblazer in your party. They need to be at level 30 or above, as well. If you’re like me, you might have to do a bit of last-minute leveling up to get them to that level.
It’s worth noting the mission will definitely go more smoothly if you have one of the best team comps available, and if your characters at level 38 or higher. Cocolia in her various forms is weak to fire, lightning, and physical attacks. My team consisted of the Trailblazer, Dan Heng, Bailu, and March 7th. That’s because I’m playing without spending money and I happened to draw Bailu. If you didn’t draw her, Natasha is an extremely capable healer you will have access to at this point in the game. I never like to go anywhere without a healer.
When you tackle the mission, you’ll soon find it includes battles with a number of high-level adversaries. Not long into the attempt, your team of four characters faces off against the area boss. Like a lot of bosses, she hits hard. You’ll want to regularly monitor your HP. If your characters are at level 40 (which they likely are), you shouldn’t need to use any consumable items to persevere. Once the battle progresses to a certain point, the battleground shifts. Now the Trailblazer faces off against Cocolia without backup. After a short a round or two that I’m not sure it’s even possible to lose, an event occurs.
In this new event sequence, you wander through space and view past memories featuring familiar individuals. At the end of that tour, you touch a flaming sword and return to battle now imbued with additional powers. Your friends join you again. Now, the lot of you must defeat Cocolia for good. The game walks you through using your new fire-based capabilities, but otherwise, there’s nothing new to see. Once you win, your Trailblazer gains the ability to shift freely between paths. You will have to change the Light Cone you equip, depending on the path you follow. The most effective Relics also change. Your character level remains the same, however.
