Herta is a fairly decent character in this game. She isn’t the strongest damage dealer but has skills that allow her to deal good enough AoE damage. And so, many players in Honkai Star Rail are looking for the best Build for Herta. And if you are one of them, then worry not. Below I have listed down the best Relics, Light Cone, and Team Comp for her. You can also find out if you should upgrade her Eidolons.

Who is Herta?

In Honkai Star Rail, Herta is a 4-star character that has the Ice element. She follows the Path of The Erudition, which makes her an excellent character for AoE damage.

As per her in-game description, she is the human with the highest IQ in the Blue. According to her, her ranged puppet is 75% similar to how she looked as a kid.

She is notorious for dropping projects that no longer interest her. And one of its prime example is the Space station.

It also gets “The Maiden in the Painting” as its Superimposition. It has the following effects that work like a passive:

If you get 6 duplicate Herta you get the following Eidolons for her:

  • Kick You When You’re Down: If enemy’s Health is 50% or below, Herta’s Basic attack will deal additional Ice damage equal to 40% of her attack.

  • No One Can Betray Me: Herta’s attack increases by 25% for 1 turn after she uses her Ultimate.

Are her Eidolon Upgrades Worth it?

If you enjoy her moves and plan on using her then you can consider upgrading her Eidolons. But if you plan on ditching her after getting better characters then it is best if you don’t go out of your way to pull for her Duplicates.

Why you Might want to Use Herta?

There are two main reasons why she might interest you. First that she is a free character, and you can get her by completing the World 2 of the Simulated Universe. Aside from that as mentioned before she is a character that hits multiple targets at the same time with her AoE attacks. And her having the Ice element can be useful in certain situations.

While this is the best build for her, there are several other characters that you can use in this game. Be sure to check out our Honkai Star Rail character Tier List to see where she and other characters rank.
