GEPARD GUIDE AND BUILD ON HONKAI STAR RAIL

GEPARD GUIDE AND BUILD ON HONKAI STAR RAIL

Gepard is a highly recommended 5-star character from the Honkai Star Rail Permanent Banner since he is a full-fledged Tank and fulfills his role perfectly.

He is a character with incredible resistance whose role will be to provide shields to the team so that they do not receive damage (he has a fairly powerful shield for the entire team) while at the same time receiving the enemy’s blows (since he will resist them better ) and tries to freeze someone to have a little more CC (Crowd Control, let’s go). But since he is normal, he doesn’t have good damage.

In this post we will see a complete analysis of the character and after this his best Build along with his Cones of Light, Artifacts, and recommended Ornaments. Let’s go there!

ATTRIBUTES OR STATS

These are the Attributes or Stats that Gepard will have at the maximum level:

  • HP: 1397
  • ATK: 543
  • DEF: 654
  • SPD: 92

Gepard’s Stats are great as they are very much in line with his Tank role. He has very high HP and DEF , which in the end is what he needs the most to take a lot of damage and also to provide better shields to the team (the effectiveness of the shield depends on its DEF).

Regarding the rest, as expected… a fairly low ATK (it is not a character that is designed to do damage) and a VERY low Speed, so the most common thing will be that it is the last character to carry out its action.

PATHFINDER ABILITIES PHYSICAL/DESTRUCTION

These are all of Gepard’s Skills. The numbers/percentages are what you have at the lowest level:

BASIC ATK: FIST OF CONVICTION

Deal 50% Cold Damage to a single enemy of your choice.

BASIC ABILITY: OVERWHELMING STRIKE

  • Basic Skill Point Consumption: 1

Deals 110% Cold Damage to one enemy and has a 65% chance to Freeze the enemy for 1 turn. The frozen enemy will not be able to act and on its turn (which will be delayed) it will receive 27% Cold Damage.

It is very useful to prevent enemies from attacking us, which also contributes to less damage received by our team.

ULTIMATE ABILITY: ENDURING BASTION

  • Energy Cost: 100

Using it will grant the entire team (including himself) a shield equal to 38% of Gepard’s Defense + 168 for 3 turns.

TALENT: IRON WILL

When Gepard is killed, he will revive with 27% of his max HP, it can only happen once per battle. Very good talent, the truth is that he has saved me on more than one occasion.

TECHNIQUE: CAMARADERIE

The entire team gains a shield equal to 24% of Gepard’s DEF + 150 for 2 turns.

ADDITIONAL SKILLS

We can unlock them in the Strokes upon reaching a certain Ascension Level.

  • Ascension Level 2 – Integrity
    • Enemies will be more likely to decide to attack Gepard.
  • Ascension Tier 4 – Commander
    • Upon activating the Talent (when you revive), you will gain 100% of the energy, allowing you to cast the Ultimate to reactivate the shields.
  • Ascension Level 6 – Fighting Spirit
    • Increases your ATK based on 35% of your DEF, it will refresh every turn.

EIDOLON

These are the improvements that the character obtains through the Eidolon:

  • E1 – Due Diligence : +35% chance to freeze when using Basic Ability.
  • E2 – Persistent Cold : Reduces the SPD of enemies by 20% when they take passive freezing damage from Basic Ability.
  • E3 – Never Give Up : +2 levels to Ultimate and Talent.
  • E4 – Faith Moves Mountains : Increases the effect RES of the entire team by 20% while Gepard is in battle.
  • E5 – Iron Cold Fist : +2 levels to Basic Ability and +1 to Basic Attack.
  • E6 – Unyielding Determination : When you activate the Talent (by reviving) it will advance Gepard’s action by 100% and you will regenerate HP based on 50% of your max HP.

As usually happens in the 5 stars of the permanent, they are normal Eidolons, they do not break the character at all; They’re not bad though. The E4 and E6 are the ones that I find most interesting.

GEPARD’S BEST BUILD

We want our Gepard to provide the greatest defensive support possible , trying to direct him to damage is a will and I can’t; better than specializing it in the Tank role of him.

BEST LIGHT CONES

The Moment of Victory on Honkai Star Rail

These are the best Cones of Light for Gepard sorted from best to worst (they all come highly recommended anyway) and trying to add both 5-star and 4-star options. Here we will list the effects in Level 1 Overlay.

  • The Moment of Victory  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐: +24% DEF, 24% Hit Effect and increases the probability of receiving enemy attacks. When attacked you gain 24% bonus DEF until the end of your turn.
  • The First Day of the Rest of My Life  ⭐⭐⭐⭐: +16% DEF and 8% RES to damage to the whole party when entering combat (cannot activate multiple times in a battle even if you have 2 characters with the Cone of Light ).
  • Universal Market Trends  ⭐⭐⭐⭐: +16% DEF and when hit has a 100% chance to burn the enemy for 40% DEF Damage Over Time for 2 turns.
  • Landau’s Pick  ⭐⭐⭐⭐: You will be more likely to be hit by enemies and take 16% less damage.

BEST ARTIFACTS AND ORNAMENTS

We will start with the Artifacts and Ornaments. Here are the stats we recommend on each piece to maximize its defensive utility to your team.

  • Torso : Effect hit.
  • Legs : DEF %.
  • Plane Sphere : DEF %.
  • Union Rope : Energy Recovery.

These would be the substats:

  • DEF %.
  • Effect Hit.
  • RES to Effect.
  • HP %.
  • SPEED

His best Artifact Set is as follows:

Paladin of the Church of the Immaculate Court

Paladin of the Church of the Immaculate Court on Honkai Star Rail
  • 2 pieces: +15% DEF.
  • 4 pieces: +20% effectiveness to shields.

And this is his best Set of Ornaments:

The Belobog of Architects

  • 2 pieces: +15% DEF and +15% bonus DEF if character has more than 50% Effect Hit.

It would be pretty key to get to those 50% Effect Hit to get the bonus DEF, which will be easy if you follow this Build.

BEST TEAMS

We will give some examples of equipment and recommended routes , but in the end what you should do is take into account the enemy’s weaknesses when building.

He really is a character that fits on any team, the only thing you should keep in mind is that you should not take him with other Conservation or Abundance characters (Healers) as it would be playing too defensively.
