Fly like a butterfly, sting like an even bigger butterfly, with the help of our Honkai Star Rail Seele build, including attacks, light cones, relics, and more.

Honkai Star Rail tier list - Seele looking off to the side with a serious look on her face

Throughout your time on Jarilo-VI, Honkai Star Rail’s Seele plays an important role, standing by your side as you fight for justice and attempting to mend the rifts in the class-torn world she inhabits. Growing up in Belobog’s underworld isn’t easy, but Seele made the most of it and now works as a key member of the Wildlife faction. She’s a fierce fighter worthy of a space on your team due to her quick and hefty quantum damage. Our Honkai Star Rail Seele build guide aims to show exactly how to harness the power of this deadly butterfly.

If you want an extra helping hand getting acquainted with all the other citizens of Belabog, check out our Honkai Star Rail tier list and Honkai Star Rail code guide. We also have builds for all the other trailblazers, including Honkai Star Rail’s Jing Yuan and Honkai Star Rail’s March 7th.

Honkai Star Rail’s Seele won’t take no for an answer, so let’s build her correctly.

What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Seele build?

Honkai Star Rail’s Seele is a high-impact, burst-based DPS, that deals heaps of damage to a single target over a short period of time. Her kit focuses on crit, speed, and plenty of attack, so she can do as much damage as possible each turn. As such, we recommend building Seele with attack, speed, crit rate, crit damage, and quantum damage, and using her as a main damage dealer. Pairing her up with a supporting character – especially Honkai Star Rail’s Bronya – to add to her own self-buffs can also help her shine even more.

What are the best light cones for Honkai Star Rail’s Seele?

In the Night is a five-star light cone tailored towards Seele’s kit, increasing her crit rate and boosting her basic attack damage and ultimate crit damage depending on her speed. With the speed buff she gains from her skill, this light cone can offer a substantial boost in stats that make it very worthwhile.

However, as it’s a five-star gacha pull, you’ll need a decent serving of luck to pull In the Night. If you’re looking for something to fill the slot until you get it, you can go with any light cone that aligns with the path of the Hunt – preferably one that boosts Seele’s crit rate.

Light cone Effect How to obtain
In the Night (five-star) Increases Seele’s crit rate by 12%. If her speed is above 100, every additional ten speed points increase her basic attack damage and skill damage and increases her ultimate crit damage. This effect can stack up to eight times. Gacha
Arrows (three-star) Increases Seele’s crit rate at the beginning of battle. Gacha
Darting Arrow (three-star) Increases Seele’s attack for three turns when she defeats an enemy. Gacha

What are the best relics for Honkai Star Rail’s Seele?

The best relic set we’ve seen for Seele so far is Genius of Brilliant Stars, which boosts her quantum damage and increases her attack. When it comes to sub-stats, we recommend aiming for crit, attack, speed, and quantum damage boost where possible. For crit, you should try to maintain a 2:1 ratio between crit damage and crit rate.

For Seele’s planar ornaments, we recommend starting off with Space Sealing Station to boost her attack even further, and then giving Celestial Differentiator a try once you unlock it, as it offers a handy boost to her crit damage potential.

Relic Effect How to obtain
Genius of Brilliant Stars Two equipped: Increases quantum damage by 10%
Four equipped: when Seele attacks an enemy, the damage dealt ignores 10% of their defense. If the enemy has quantum weakness, ignores an additional 10%
Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Providence in Jarilo-V’s Everwinter Hill
Musketeer of Wild Wheat Two equipped: increases attack by 12%
Four equipped:
increases Seele’s speed by 6% and her basic attack damage by 10%
Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Drifting in Jarilo-VI’s Corridor of Fading Echoes

Who is Honkai Star Rail’s Seele?

Seele is a spirited young woman and a key member of Belobog Underworld’s Wildfire group. While she’s accustomed to being on her own, she cares fiercely about those who she lets in. She has always seen the world as a simple dichotomy – the protectors and the protected, the oppressors and the oppressed. But through her journey, a chance encounter with the Astral Express crew and a certain girl from the Belabog overworld has led her to see that the world is far from black and white.

Seele is a five-star quantum damage dealer, and she treads the path of the Hunt. Her English voice actor is Molly Zhang, and her Japanese voice actor is Nakahara Mai.
