Honkai Star Rail Best Serval Build – Light Cones, Relics, and more!

There's inspiration in every breeze!

If any Honkai Star Rail players are looking for a strong AOE damage dealer, look no further than Serval. She is arguably the best Lightning DPS in the game, due to her ability to stack Shock on the enemy. That chip damage will add up very quickly, leading to some fast clears of enemy waves. Here is the best build for Serval, including Light Cones, Relics, and more!

Best Light Cone for Serval in Honkai Star Rail

There are a lot of Light Cones that work well with Serval in Honkai Star Rail, but arguably the best is Today is Another Peaceful Day. The only way to get this Light Cone is through the Battle Pass, but it gives Serval higher damage based on her Max Energy (which is 100). This results in a 20% Damage boost.

Best free-to-play Light Cone for Serval in Honkai Star Rail

For a better budget option, there's nothing wrong with slapping The Seriousness of Breakfast on Serval. This is a really easy Light Cone to get, and most players likely have a couple copies after doing some initial warps. The Seriousness of Breakfast offers a 15% Damage boost, but that number grows for every defeated enemy.

Best Relics for Serval in Honkai Star Rail

Serval users will definitely want to shoot for the Band of Sizzling Thunder. With all four pieces, Serval will get a 20% Attack boost after using her skill. Serval wants to be using her skill early on in fights anyways for the chance to apply and spread Shock. I've found myself relying on Serval's Skill in many fights for the splash damage.

Which of Serval's stats should you boost?

As a DPS character, Serval wants all the extra Attack she can get. This makes offensive Relic sets worth investing into.

  • Head: Lightning
  • Hands: Attack
  • Body: Attack
  • Feet: Speed

Serval's Path and Element in Honkai Star Rail

Serval belongs to the Erudition path, which basically means that she excels in AOE damage. Her element is Lightning, which is pretty good for lots of the early game monsters. In particular, the Underground of Belabog has lots of robot enemies that are weak to Lightning where Serval can be of use.

Who pairs well with Serval in Honkai Star Rail?

Characters who can boost Attack perform nicely with Serval. This makes Asta an ideal partner, since many monsters who aren't weak to Lightning tend to be weak to Fire. Players will also want to use a single-target damage dealer, like Dan Heng or Sushang, to help out with bosses.
