The Best Build for Dan Heng in Honkai: Star Rail

Honkai: Star Rail Dan Heng Best Build

Do you need some guidance with putting together the best build for Dan Heng in Honkai: Star Rail? Let us help you out.

Dan Heng is a very mild-mannered member of the Honkai: Star Rail trailblazers. The kind of guy who will spend all his free time in the archives. For fun. But he’s also a mega DPS team player, utilising his pole-arm weapon for big damage attacks. Read on to find out the best build for Dan Heng in Honkai: Star Rail.

Dan Heng controls the power of the wind to amplify his attacks. His basic attack and skill attack both land heavy wind damage, as does his ultimate. Don’t expect him to heal or buff anyone, though: he’s only here to hit enemies.

Players wanting to use Dan Heng will need to focus on increasing his damage output as well as improving the CRIT rate.
