Honkai Star Rail’s Luka is a skilled mixed martial artist and fight club regular in Belobog’s Underworld. He’s easy to spot in a crowd with his crimson hair and if you hear the locals talking about a boxing champ with a mechanical arm, you can be sure that they’re talking about HSR Luka. We’ve got all the details you need to get him into fighting shape.
Hoyoverse’s newest game is full of great characters, but some rank better than others. Check out our Honkai Star Rail tier list to see where your favorite ranks, or grab some Honkai Star Rail codes to save your Stellar Jade for the stars of the Honkai Star Rail banner. We’ve also got build guides for more strong characters like Honkai Star Rail’s Sushang, Honkai Star Rail’s March 7th, and Honkai Star Rail’s Yukong.
Come with us as we fight our way to the best Honkai Star Rail Luka build.
So far, we’ve only been introduced to Luka through his splash art and a brief appearance in a trailer, but we do know that he’s a four-star character who deals physical damage and walks the path of The Nihility. Characters from this path like Honkai Star Rail’s Sampo and Honkai Star Rail’s Welt excel at applying debuffs and dealing DoT, and we know from the version 1.2 trailer that Luka can inflict bleed on enemies.
Every Honkai Star Rail character has at least one light cone made specifically to compliment their abilities and Luka’s signature light cone is Resolution Shines As Pearls of Sweat. It’s a four-star light cone for the path of The Nihility that you can get from Stellar Warps.
If by the time Luka releases you still haven’t got his light cone, any cone for The Nihility should serve him well, especially those that interact with DoT.
|Light cone||Effect||How to obtain|
|Resolution Shines As Pearls of Sweat||When Luka hits an enemy and if the enemy is not already Ensnared, then there is a 60% base chance to Ensnare the target. Ensnared enemies’ defense decreases by 12% for one turn||Gacha|
|Eyes of the Prey||Increases Luka’s effect hit rate by 20% and increases DoT by 24%||Gacha|
|Void||At the start of battle, Luka’s effect hit rate increases by 20% for three turns||Gacha|
As we don’t know the specifics of Luka’s abilities just yet, we can’t definitively say what his best relic set would be. However, we do know that he’s a physical damage dealer and treads the path of The Nihility, so we can make some broad assumptions based on that information.
Currently there’s only one relic set built specifically for physical damage dealers, and that’s Champion of Streetwise Boxing. If any of his skills scale based on his attack stat, this set will be a great choice. As for his Planetary Ornaments, as he’s likely going to be a debuffer, Pan-Galactic Commercial Enterprise is the best choice for Luka, especially if you can get a physical damage bonus on them.
|Relic set||Effect||How to obtain|
|Champion of Streetwise Boxing||Two equipped: increases physical damage by 10%
Four equipped: after Luka attacks or is hit by an enemy, his attack increases by 5% for the rest of the battle. This effect can stack up to five times
|Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Jabbing Punch in Jarilo-VI’s Silvermane Guard Restricted Zone, or from the shop in Boulder Town|
|Thief of Shooting Meteor||Two equipped: increases break effect by 16%
Four equipped: increases Luka’s break effect by 16%. He regenerates three energy when he inflicts weakness break on an enemy
|Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Jabbing Punch in Jarilo-VI’s Silvermane Guard Restricted Zone|
|Pan-Galactic Commercial Enterprise||Two equipped: increases Luka’s effect hit rate by 10%. Meanwhile, his attack increases by an amount equal to 25% of the current hit rate, up to a maximum of 25% bonus||Immersion Reward devices in World 5 of the Simulated Universe|
Seeing as we haven’t even met Luka yet, it’s unsurprising that we know next to nothing about his attacks and eidolons. We’ll include what little we do know here and we’ll be sure to update this section as soon as Hoyoverse reveals more.
|Basic attack (enhanced): Sky-Shatter Fist||Deal four hits of damage, with the final hit dealing additional damage to Bleeding enemies|
|Skill: Lacerating Fist||Deal physical damage to a single target. This also has a chance to inflict Bleed|
|Ultimate: Coup de Grâce||Luka deals massive amounts of physical damage to a single enemy and also gains Fighting Will. There is a base 100% chance to increase a target enemy’s damage received over a set number of turns|
|Talent: Flying Sparks||After using his basic attack or skill, Luka obtains one stack of Fighting Will. When he has two or more stacks of Fighting Will, his basic attack is enhanced to Sky-Shatter Fist|
|Anticipator||Luka obtains Fighting Will upon entering battle, as well as dealing physical damage to a single enemy with a 100% base chance to inflict Bleed on them|
Luka is yet to appear in the main story for Honkai Star Rail, but we know a little bit about him from official social media posts, the version 1.2 livestream, and his signature light cone. The Honkai Star Rail Twitter describes him as “an optimistic and carefree fighter with a mechanical arm” and his splash art shows him inside the fight club ring in Belobog’s Underworld. He’s also a member of Wildfire alongside Honkai Star Rail’s Seele and Honkai Star Rail’s Natasha.
Both his light cone and his character description suggest that he has a tragic backstory that inspires him to protect the people around him. Hopefully, we’ll get to spend more time with him when he’s released and find out more about who he means when he mentions “the ones who ignited his determination in the first place.”
That’s everything we’ve got on Honkai Star Rail’s Luka at the moment. While we wait for more info on this fiery-haired fighter, head over to our Genshin Impact codes page and Genshin Impact tier list to help you get ahead in Teyvat. We’ve also got build guides for characters like Genshin Impact’s Kaeya, Genshin Impact’s Keqing, and Genshin Impact’s Diona.
