Dan Heng's Common Trace Materials in Honkai Star Rail

You'll need Core common trace materials to ascend Dan Heng. They are commonly dropped by Voidranger enemies. Dan Heng will need these materials to raise his character level, skill levels, and fully unlock his Traces. To fully unlock all of them he will need: 

  • 40 Extinguished Cores 
  • 55 Glimmering Cores
  • 54 Squirming Cores

The best way to obtain these materials is to fight enemies found in Backwater Pass or Rivet Town on Jarilo-VI. The higher the level of enemies you are fighting, the more materials of higher rarity they will drop. You can also get these materials from fighting in the Simulated Universe. This game mode features randomly generated enemies, and can not be relied upon to always drop these materials.

You can also obtain these materials passively by completing the Nine Billion Names assignment. Use characters of the Erudition path on this assignment to gain extra materials.

Dan Heng's Path Material in Honkai Star Rail

Dan Heng is a character that follows the path of The Hunt, so he needs arrow Path Materials farmed from the Bud of The Hunt Crimson Calyx. You will need to spend at least 10 Trailblaze Power to obtain these materials. The higher of level of challenge you complete, the more items you will receive for Trailblaze power spent.

Dan Heng uses these materials to raise his skill levels and unlock Traces. You'll need this many materials to fully ascend his skills: 

  • 12 Arrows of the Beast 
  • 54 Arrows of the Demon 
  • 105 Arrows of the Starchaser

He does not need this material to ascend as a character, but keep in mind more of these materials will also be needed to ascend any Light Cone he would use. The number of materials you will need will vary with the rarity of the Light Cone.

Dan Heng's Character Ascension Material, Advanced Trace Material, and Tracks of Destiny in Honkai Star Rail

To obtain Dan Heng's Character Ascension material, you'll need to farm the Shape of Gust Stagnant Shadow challenge. He'll need 50 Storm Eyes to fully ascend.

Again, keep in mind that challenging the Stagnant Shadow fight on the highest difficulty possible will award you more Character Ascension Materials for Trailblaze Power spent.

Dan Heng uses the Destroyer's Final Road Advanced Trace Materials. They can only be obtained from the Echo of War: Destruction's Beginning. These challenges can only be taken on three times per week. He'll will need nine Destroyer's Final Road to fully ascend his skills, as well as three more to unlock his Bonus abilities, for a total of 12.

Any character will also need at least five Tracks of Destiny to fully ascend their skills and unlock their last two Bonus Abilities. These materials are almost equivalent to Crowns of Insight from Genshin Impact, although they are thankfully easier to obtain. You can get them as a Limited Time Event Reward, but you can also farm them weekly by completing the Simulated Universe, or win them as a reward from the free version of the Nameless Honor Battle Pass. If you purchase the Nameless Glory Battle Pass, you will be able to obtain more Tracks of Destiny per version update.
