Understanding Firefly’s playstyle

Firefly is a burst damage dealer who thrives on breaking enemies. Her kit revolves around her “Complete Combustion” mechanic, which sacrifices a portion of her HP in exchange for a massive boost in power.

This translates to high Super Break damage, making her perfect for taking down enemies quickly, especially those with high Break bars.

Relic selection

Main Stats:
  • Body & Sphere: Prioritize Attack% for raw damage output.
  • Boots: Speed is crucial to ensure Firefly can consistently unleash her ultimate and break enemies before they get a chance to act.
  • Sub stats: Look for Attack% and Speed to further enhance her Break potential and overall damage.
Relic Sets:
  • Iron Cavalry Against The Scourge: This is the undisputed champion for Firefly. It offers a significant boost to Break Effect and Defense Ignore, allowing her to shred through enemy defenses during Break states and deal devastating Super Break damage.Honkai Iron Cavalry Against The Scourge
  • F2P alternatives: While farming for Iron Cavalry, consider 2-piece sets that offer Attack% or Break Effect bonuses. Sets like “Blade Dancer” or “Martial Artist” can be good options.
  • Planar Ornaments: Focus on Break Effect and Attack%.

Choosing the right Light Cone

  • Signature Light Cone (if available): This remains the ideal choice, offering a direct boost to Break Effect and Super Break damage, perfectly synergizing with Firefly’s Destruction path focus.
Alternative Light Cones:
  • Light Cones with Break Effect: Prioritize Light Cones that specifically enhance the Attk% or Break Effect. Look for options like “On the Fallen of an Aeon” or “Indelible Promise.” These will significantly increase Firefly’s ability to break enemies and unleash her devastating Super Break damage.

Team synergy for maximum impact

To truly unleash Firefly’s fury, consider these team compositions that provide the support she needs to dominate the battlefield:

Break-focused team:
  • Harmony MC: Her Break buff significantly enhances Firefly’s Super Break damage.
  • Ruan Mei: Her ability to buff the break effect makes it easier for Firefly to break enemies faster and deal more damage on the break.
  • Pela: Provides an amazing debuff to further boost Firefly’s overall damage.
