Honkai Star Rail 2.3 Banners Officially Revealed

HoYoverse has officially unveiled the drip marketing of two new 5-star characters, Firefly and Jade, confirming their presence in the HSR 2.3 banners.

HSR Firefly

Firefly was once a part of the well-liked Stellaron Hunter group in the game, which Ellio leads. Her genetic mutation that turned her into a weapon caused her to develop Entropy Loss Syndrome. This excruciating illness causes the physical body to irreversibly dissociate over time, eventually leading it to evaporate.

In case you're curious, the voices of HSR Firefly in English are provided by Adin Rudd and Analesa Fisher, where, SAM, her armored counterpart, will be voiced by Adin. 

Check out Firefly's kit.

HSR Jade

Described as a cold and elegant usurer, Jade possesses a keen insight into human nature, leveraging her abilities for financial gain. Her goal is to wait patiently for valuable items before taking advantage of the poor to get money. As a senior manager in the IPC Strategic Investment Department and member of the elite Ten Stonehearts, Jade commands respect and influence. 

Furthermore, according to reports, Jade is a 5-star Quantum character coming in the 2.3 update, who takes the Erudition path. Voiced by Faye Mata in English and Kotono Mitsuishi in Japanese, she embodies sophistication and intellect.

Check out Jade's kit.

The identities of the new characters are partially revealed by leaks, but there is still no information regarding the launching of a new 4-star character or the characters on Firefly and Jade's banner.

Honkai Star Rail 2.3 Banner Release Date

While an official release date for the Honkai Star Rail 2.3 banners is pending confirmation, speculations point to around June 24, 2024. However, release dates are subject to change, emphasizing the importance of relying on official announcements from HoYoverse for accurate information.

Now, head on to the next section to find out more about the new Honkai Star Rail 2.3 banner characters, including their revealed skills, traces, talents, and more.

Honkai Star Rail Firefly

Leaked details suggest Firefly will assume the role of a 5-star Fire Destruction character, positioned as a DPS powerhouse within team compositions. She is one of the Stellaron Hunters and the one hiding underneath SAM's armor. She has Entropy Loss Syndrome, as we know from her conversation with the Trailblazer in Version 2.0.

Enhanced Basic ATK: Smoldering Wasteland

Honkai Star Rail Jade

Following the Erudition Path and becoming a 5-star unit, Honkai Star Rail Jade will join the ranks of Quantum characters. It appears that she will take on the job of DPS, following in the footsteps of Aeon Nous-blessed beings that are renowned for their potent Area-of-Effect (AoE) attacks.

HSR Jade Abilities

Basic ATK

  • Deals Quantum DMG to a single target and adjacent targets. 


  • Applies the Nephrite effect to a single ally. At the start of Jade's own turn, Nephrite's remaining duration decreases by 1. At most 1 ally can have the Nephrite effect.
  • When the ally with Nephrite attacks an enemy, Jade deals Additional Quantum DMG to the attacked target(s).
  • If the ally with Nephrite is not Jade, Nephrite will also increase this ally's SPD, and will consume a percentage of this ally's Max HP when Nephrite is applied, draining to 1 HP if HP is insufficient.
  • In auto combat, this skill will prioritize Erudition path characters.


  • Deals Quantum DMG to all enemies and gains a certain number of Enhanced Follow-Up charges.
  • When Jade performs a follow-up attack, if Jade has Enhanced Follow-Up charges, she will consume 1 charge to make this attack deal extra DMG.


  • When allies with Nephrite attacks enemies, every enemy attacked will provide Jade with a certain number of Credits. When Jade uses Basic ATK or Ultimate, every enemy attacked will provide Jade with 1 Credit. These two effects can be triggered simultaneously, but every enemy can only trigger each of them once in every attack event.
  • When Jade reaches a certain number of Credits, she will consume this number of Credits to unleash a follow-up attack, dealing Quantum DMG to all enemy targets.
  • For every enemy that appears on field, Jade will gain 1 stack of Jadeite, increasing her ATK. This effect persists even after the enemy is defeated or leaves. When Jade performs a follow-up attack, she will gain a certain number of stacks of Jadeite. The number of Jadeite stacks has an upper limit.


  • When Jade enters the overworld, will summon an following entity. This entity will inflict Blind to nearby enemies. Blinded enemies cannot detect your team.
  • Upon using this technique, Jade will shoot a bullet at an enemy. If the bullet hit an enemy with Blind, will apply an effect to Jade and another effect to all enemies after entering battle.
