Honkai Star Rail 2.1 Banners: Characters and Their Kits

The latest information on these characters comes from a reliable source, stepleaker, who has unveiled details about Acheron, Aventurine, and Gallagher being featured in the HSR 2.1 banners.

Character Details:

  • Acheron (5-star Nihility)
  • Aventurine (5-star Preservation)
  • Gallagher (4-star Abundance)

Leaks indicate that Acheron, a five-star Quantum-type character on The Nihility Path, will make her first appearance in the first phase of the HSR 2.1 banner somewhere in March 2024 and that Aventurine will be introduced in the second phase in May 2024. In the meantime, information on Gallagher's release is still unknown.

Acheron, the upcoming 5-star Nihility character, boasts a DPS-focused kit with Quantum damage. Unlike other characters, her Ultimate doesn't rely on energy but utilizes a distinct recharge mechanism. Her lore as the Galaxy Ranger, wandering the cosmos with her sword, adds an air of mystery. Acheron primarily strikes with her scabbard, refraining from drawing her Sword free.

Aventurine, a 5-star Preservation character, wields Imaginary Damage and excels in providing shields to allies based on his Defense stat. As a senior manager in the IPC Strategic Investment Department and one of the Ten Stonehearts, Aventurine takes a high-stakes, high-return approach to life, unafraid to take risks.

Gallagher, the 4-star Abundance character, specializes in Fire damage, scaling off Attack instead of HP. Known for his strong offensive kit and healing abilities, he introduces debuffs that enhance Break Effect damage and delay enemy attacks. Serving as a security officer for the Bloodhound Family at Penacony, Gallagher is a mixologist with a courteous yet vigilant demeanor.
