How to get Relics in Honkai Star Rail – How to unlock, farm & more!

You can't run from the daily grind, but at least you can auto-battle.

Honkai: Star Rail's enemies are extremely formidable. This made early gameplay a massive challenge for us. Luckily, toward the end of Jarilo-VI's story, you'll eventually be able to farm Relics, upgradeable equipment sets that can give your characters a massive power boost. Here's how to get them.

How to unlock Relics in Honkai Star Rail

You'll automatically unlock Relics after completing the following prerequisites:

  • Reach Trailblaze Level 14
  • Do the Trailblaze Mission called "Ones Fallen Into the Abyss"

In the Trailblaze Mission above, you'll be asked to speak with Natasha in the Great Mine. Doing so will unlock the Relics section in the character menu. However, you won't be able to farm them until later on.

How to farm for Relics in Honkai Star Rail

To first be able to farm Relics in Honkai Star Rail, you must first complete the following prerequisites:

  • Do the Trailblaze Mission called "The Stars are Cold Toys"

While doing the Trailblaze Mission above, you'll encounter the first Cavern of Corrosion in the Corridor of Fading Echoes. Approaching it will prompt text messages with Welt, unlocking the Cavern of Corrosion section in the Interastral Peace Guide.

However, we don't recommend you actively farm for Relics until your Trailblaze Level hits 40. It's only at this point that five-star Relics drop from the Caverns of Corrosion—we learned this the hard way. Until then, use your Trailblaze Power on Calyx (for Trace and EXP materials) instead and stick with the four-star Relics you can get from Simulated Universe and treasure chests.

Caverns of Corrosion aren't difficult at all! You can win them with auto battle, provided that you bring characters with an element advantage.

Caverns of Corrosion are domains where you can farm Relics. You can find them in the following areas:

Path of ConflagrationStagazer Navalia, Xianzhou LuofuFiresmith of Lava-Forging
Wastelander of Banditry Desert

It costs 40 Trailblaze Power to challenge a Cavern of Corrosion, and you'll get random Relics from the specified sets above as rewards. I found these challenges difficult at first, but they eventually get easier once your characters are all geared up.
