Honkai Star Rail’s PS5 players are still missing this vital meta unit

Having the best team in Honkai Star Rail is vital, but new players on PS5 can't actually get their hands on one of the best characters in the game right now.

If you’re a fresh Honkai Star Rail player hoping to throw together the best team you can on your PlayStation 5, you could be waiting quite a while for the right units to arrive in warps. We know this isn’t what new PS5 players will want to hear right now, but those of you chasing all the Honkai Star Rail meta characters just can’t actually get the must-have picks at the moment – of which, one is a character almost everyone else is using.

Honkai Star Rail might be one of the best new PS5 games for you to play if you’re looking for a free-to-play timesink, but that doesn’t mean it’s the fairest game out there. Those of you on your PlayStation console looking to find out if this is one of the best RPG games out there right now, or not, will find that you’re quite-literally unable to get one of the best Honkai Star Rail team comps at the moment; this includes one of the best characters in the game, that the stats say everyone is using.

If you’re wondering who we’re talking about, we are of course talking about Luocha – a character widely regarded as the best healer in the game and a fantastic unit to have in your side. They compliment all the best Honkai Star Rail characters well and should be someone you’re always trying to get your hands on.

As you can see in these stats from a post on forum site ‘tieba.baidu‘ which were shared on Reddit by ‘Brandon1823‘, a staggering 99.6% of Honkai Star Rail players appear to be using Luocha. They also feature in a team composition that appears to be used by almost exactly a third of players. If that doesn’t highlight that they’re a must-have character, we don’t know what will.

However, that doesn’t mean you can actually get them on your PS5 – and it’s not even your fault. If you look at the current Honkai Star Rail 1.4 banners and the upcoming Honkai Star Rail Banner schedule, there’s actually no mention of Luocha for quite a while.

So, for now, you’ll have to just settle on Jingliu – which isn’t so bad. If you want to find out why you should get your free Honkai Star Rail Special Passes and spend them trying to get her, you can check out her character trailer below:
