Yunli is a 5-Star Physical character of The Destruction path likely coming to Honkai: Star Rail in version 2.4.

While Yunli will likely be featured as the boosted 5-Star character on her Banner in version 2.4, she will eventually return to Honkai: Star Rail at some point in the future when the Banner schedule cycles back to her.

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

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

Yunli's kit

Yunli is a 5-Star Physical character of The Destruction path who scales off attack and can be used in both single-target and AOE (area of effect) battles in a DPS role. She can heal herself, taunt enemies, and launch counter attacks.

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 her official release, here's a summary of Yunli's kit in Honkai Star Rail:

  • Element: Physical.
  • Path: The Destruction.
  • Rarity: 5-Star.
  • Cropped splash art of Yunli from Honkai Star Rail.

  • Basic Attack: Galespin Summersault - Deals Physical damage equal to 50% of Yunli's attack to a single enemy.
  • Skill: Bladeborne Quake - Restores HP equal to 20% of Yunli's attack plus 50, and deals Physical damage equal to 60% of Yunli's attack to a single enemy target and Physical damage equal to 30% of Yunli's attack to adjacent targets.
  • Ultimate: Earthbind, Etherbreak - Yunli consumes 120 Energy to gain Parry, Taunting all enemies, which lasts until the end of the next turn of an ally or enemy unit. While Parry is active, the Crit Damage of Yunli's next Counter is increased by 60% , and when the 'Counter' Talent effect is triggered while Parry is active, it is switched to a Counter Intuit: Cull effect, and also dispels Parry. If no Counters are triggered while Parry is active, when the effect ends, Yunli will immediately launch a Counter Intuit: Slash effect on a random enemy target.
    • Intuit: Slash deals physical damage to the target equal to 120% of Yunli's attack, and deals Physical damage to adjacent targets equal to 60% of Yunli's attack.
    • Intuit: Cull deals Physical damage equal to 120% of Yunli's attack to target, and 60% of her attack to adjacent targets. Then, Yunli deals an additional six instances of damage, with each instance dealing Physical damage equal to 36% of Yunli's attack to a random single enemy target. When Yunli deals damage through this ability, it is considered Ultimate damage.
  • Talent (passive ability): Flashforge - When Yunli is attacked by an enemy target, she regenerates 15 Energy and immediately launches a Counter attack, dealing Physical damage equal to 60% of Yunli's attack, and Physical damage to adjacent targets equal to 30% of her attack.
  • Technique (overworld ability): Posterior Precedence - Yunli gains the Ward effect for 20 seconds. When entering combat by attacking enemies or receiving an attack, she immediately inflicts Intuit: Cull on a random enemy target, increasing the attack's damage by 80%.
  • Bonus Trace 1: Fiery Wheel - Every time 1 'Intuit: Slash' is used, the next Intuit: Slash will become 'Intuit: Cull'.
  • Bonus Trace 2: Demon Quell - While in the Parry state, Yunli resists Crowd Control on her, and reduces damage received by 20%.
  • Bonus Trace 3: True Sunder - When using a Counter, Yunli's attack is increased by 30% for one turn.

Just like Ascension, to get the most out of using Yunli you will have to level-up her attacks and passive abilities by using Trace materials, which vary from character-to-character.

With thanks to honeyhunterworld again for sourcing the information, for Yunli it looks like you'll need to use a lot of Borisin Teeth and Dream-based materials to fully upgrade her capabilities.

In total, to upgrade all of her abilities, the Yunli Trace Materials you need are:

  • x8 Tracks of Destiny
  • x12 Regret of Infinite Ochema
  • x18 Borisin Teeth

  • x139 Moon Rage Fang
  • 3 million Credits

Once again, this is leaked beta information, so Yunli's materials could change upon her official release.
