Honkai: Star Rail could be adding a new character in version 1.1. Recent leaks suggest that Yukong will become a playable character soon.
Honkai: Star Rail players are familiar with Yukong. She is the Helm Master of the Xianzhou Alliance’s Sky-Faring Commission. Yukong is also one of Xianzhou Luofu’s Six Charioteers. Players encounter Yukong once they advance to the second world after completing all the missions in Belobog.
According to the leaks, Yukong will be a 4-star from the Harmony path, and her element will be Imaginary. Yukong’s kit is rumored to include skills that increase the allies’ CRIT Rate.
Because of her kit, Yukong would be perfectly paired up with Seele, Asta, and Bailu. The focus for the team would be to buff Seele as much as possible and make her a lethal attacker.
Yukong joins the list of characters that will become available when version 1.1 drops. Other rumored to be added are Loucha and Silver Wolf.
