Jiaoqiu is a 5-Star Fire character of The Nihility path coming to Honkai: Star Rail in version 2.4.

If you want to prepare for getting him, we've detailed reliable leaks of Jiaoqiu's Ascension materials and Trace materials so you can level him up to his full potential right away. To understand how you might play him, we've also detailed what we know about Jiaoqiu's kit and Eidolons.

Keep in mind that this is leaked beta information, so Jiaoqiu's materials and kit might change upon his official release.

Jiaoqiu's kit

Jiaoqiu is a 5-Star Fire character of The Nihility path who scales off attack and Effect Hit Rate. He deals AOE (area of effect) Fire damage, and can also lower the attack and Effect Hit Rate of enemies, along with increasing the Ultimate and Fire damage enemies receive.

All of the percentages mentioned below are based on Level 1 Traces.

Keeping in mind that this is leaked beta information from honyehunterworld that could change upon his official release, here's a summary of Jiaoqiu's kit in Honkai Star Rail:

  • Element: Fire.
  • Path: The Nihility.
  • Rarity: 5-Star.
  • Cropped splash art of Jiaoqiu's splash art from Honkai Star Rail.

  • Basic Attack: Heart Afire - Deals Fire damage equal to 50% of Jiaoqiu's attack to a single enemy.
  • Skill: Scorch Onslaught - Jiaoqiu deals Fire damage equal to 75% of his attack to a single enemy and Fire damage equal to 45% of his attack to enemies adjacent to them. Jiaoqiu has a 100% base chance to inflict one stack of Ashen Roast on the primary target.
  • Ultimate: Pyrograph Arcanum - Sets the number of Ashen Roast stacks on enemy targets to the highest number of Ashen Roast stacks present on the battlefield. Then, activates a Field and deals Fire damage equal to 60% of Jiaoqiu's attack to all enemies. While inside the field, enemy targets take 9% more Ultimate damage, with a 50% base chance of being inflicted with one stack of Ashen Roast when taking action. This effect can only be triggered once for enemies in each turn. The Field lasts for three turns, and its duration decreases by one at the start of Jiaoqiu's every turn. If Jiaoqiu is knocked down, the Field will also be dispelled.
  • Talent (passive ability): Quartet Finesse, Octave Finery - When Jiaoqiu uses his basic attack, Skill, or Ultimate to hit an enemy, there is a 100% base chance of dealing one stack of Ashen Roast, increasing the initial damage enemies receive by 7.5%, and each subsequent stack increasing damage by 2.5% for a max of five stacks, lasting last two turns.
  • Technique (overworld ability): Fiery Queller - Jiaoqiu creates a special dimension that lasts for 15 seconds. After engaging enemies in the dimension, he deals Fire damage equal to 100% of his attack to all enemies and has a 100% base chance of applying one Ashen Roast stack. Only one dimension created by allies can exist at the same time.
  • Bonus Trace 1: Pyre Cleanse - At the start of the battle, Jiaoqiu immediately regenerates 15 Energy.
  • Bonus Trace 2: Hearth Kindle - When Jiaoqiu's Effect Hit Rate is higher than 80%, for each 15% exceeded, he additionally gains 60% attack, up to a maximum of 240%.
  • Bonus Trace 3: Seared Scent - When a Field exists, enemies entering combat will be inflicted with Ashen Roast. The number of stacks applied will match the highest number of Ashen Roast stacks possessed by any unit while the Field is active, with a minimum of one stack.
