Honkai: Star Rail still has many stories to tell, but these stories will be in your mind even after you move on from Belobog and Xianzhou Luofu. Here are the stories you expected to be easy, only to be harder than expected – all for some Stellar Jade.
But these stories aren’t great just because you can get your fix of Stellar Jade and Credit. These narratives give you more information about your favorite characters, their relationships with others, and some cultural background to the worlds you’ve traveled through.
10 From Xianzhou, with love
If you have finished this story, you will know that it reveals the complexities of loneliness. You may not agree with chasing anyone – or frankly, taking people’s money, but this adventure story touches on the difficulties of social exclusion and the resulting loneliness.
You may be intimidated by the NPC, Wen Furui, who is the centerpiece of this quest, as it is clear that he is only looking for a Foxian woman fantasy. But the appeal of this story is how it reflects the reality of loneliness in an advanced society where people start buying parasocial relationships to fill their gaping need for companionship.
9 The origin of medicine
This side quest is one of the best because it gives you a glimpse of how much Natasha truly cares about the citizens of the Underworld. She is concerned even if the Undergrounds do not follow her medical advice as a doctor – and she cares little if her patients turn to her for a quick fix, as she understands their desperation.
But she still cares that people are not misled by pseudoscience and alternative medicine, which do more harm than good. Another big part of her companion story is the fact that we get to know about her and her past and why she became a doctor in the underworld despite coming from a privileged background.
8 You already know me
This particular story is Honkai: Star Rail’s take on Gossip Girl if she were on the space station and instead concerned public abuse of funds. You have a more interesting backstory on Asta and you probably laughed at the fact that she’s a rich astrologer with bad spending habits than someone from Genshin Impact.
But the even more interesting part of this story is the little twist it has at the end, which is very subtly hinted at but not delivered too well. If you haven’t finished this story yet, then you’ll have a good laugh.
7 Resistance to blizzard
Blizzard Immunity finished what you started in Origin of Medicine. You continue your journey with Natasha after the underworld is opened, and your first plan of action with her is to visit her parents, from whom she has been separated for a decade. It’s a heartwarming and well-deserved reunion of your favorite doctor.
While it’s a fluffy story about a broken family coming back together, it’s also a good story that revolves around breakup and what’s been lost. Bittersweet is a better way to describe this story, but at least Natasha has finally closed this chapter of her life once and for all.
6 Time Express
Serval is known for her innovative mind, but she seems to be a flighty and free-spirited consequence for someone who longs to learn more. So it’s no surprise that she asked if she could join you aboard the Astral Express. It’s only natural that someone excited about new discoveries would want to see the world beyond Jaril-VI.
Welt and Himeko are not opposed to the idea and were more than welcome, so traveling with Serval was only a few steps away from reality. But Bronya has an offer of her own that has put a fork in Serval’s road. In this companion quest, you’ve come to see those who will surely miss Serval and the memories she’ll leave behind—even long after she’s gone to Jarila-VI.
5 Old foreman’s treasure
Old Foreman’s Treasure is a game based on the old saying, “money can’t buy happiness” – or it’s not over yet, even for a pair of struggling denizens of Beloboga. You followed the valiant Captain of the Moles, Hook, on her quest to retrieve and repair her father’s Geomarrow detector.
But in the end, it’s no surprise that Hook’s father explains that the Geomarrow Detector isn’t his greatest treasure—and that his treasure is alive and well, which is all that matters. You can rest easy knowing that after this companion quest, Hook and her father have a healthy and loving relationship, even if they don’t have much of it.
4 Hook’s gift
Hook’s Gift is a sequel to Old Foreman’s Treasure and gives you a good background on Hook. You found out that she was adopted and that it wasn’t until her father adopted her that she appreciated the importance of birthdays. You go on a wild ride to find Hook’s father’s gift next to her, even going so far as to engage in a bidding war.
But you also saw that for all his exuberance, Hook is actually a good kid who would still resort to getting things the right way. He has integrity and cares about the people around him, even if he is ashamed to say it out loud.
3 Just a child
It’s a companion quest after Time Express, and Cheetah expresses that he’ll support his sister’s decision no matter what – but he’ll still miss her and wants her to think things through before making the life-changing decision to leave their home. planet. You’ve probably thought about leaving your country once or twice, but moving from ship to planet is definitely no joke.
One of the best things about this quest is that you get to see how much the siblings care for each other, even if they’ve taken different paths in life. Serval had a lot of unresolved pain from her past and felt the need to run away, but together with her brother you can give her the courage to face it all.
2 Rarely affectionate
Robots don’t have emotions – and according to Svarog himself, Belobog has a once-in-a-lifetime anomaly. So it’s a surprise to everyone, including Clara herself, who grew up among the robots, when it was written that Pascal had gained sentience. This little robot tried to fix Rivet Town, even after the residents fled because of the Fragmentum.
This quest was more than just fixing a malfunctioning robot and choosing its fate; it made you feel for Pascal and you started to appreciate the dynamic between Clara and Svarog. Even if Svarog ruled out that Pascal would be difficult to maintain, you could see how he respects Clara’s wishes and only wants the best for her as her family.
1 For: The Faint Star
Rocky Martinez was a researcher on Herta’s space station, and if you knew anything about this NPC, it’s that he has a huge crush on Lesley. Bernard, who thinks Rocky should focus on his studies instead of chasing after someone who hasn’t responded in a long time, takes matters into his own hands.
In this mission, you are given a blue or red pill situation, and whatever you choose to give Rocky, you think at that moment it will be for his own good. If you decided to tell him the red truth, you most likely have the song Adijo, Herta on your shelf. We wouldn’t see this lovelorn explorer for a long time (if ever), but it’s nice to see that there are those willing to fight the ebbs and flows of time just for another person.
