Honkai Star Rail Bailu: Ultimate Guide for Building, Skills, and Team Compositions

Bailu is a key character in Honkai Star Rail due to her incredible healing abilities that make her a valuable asset on any team, even if she isn’t fully optimized. Her skills and ultimate provide a constant source of healing for her allies, and her special talent allows her to even prevent enemies from knocking her teammates down.

Bailu’s Abilities

As expected from an Abundance character, Bailu’s abilities center around healing, but her passive talent also allows her to play a small support role by reducing incoming damage.

Basic Attack

Bailu can deal lightning damage to one enemy based on 50 percent of her attack, although the scaling is quite low. It is best to only use this against enemies with a lightning weakness or replenish skill points because Bailu won’t be able to take down many foes on her own.

Skill – Singing Among Clouds

Bailu can heal one ally for 78 HP plus 7.8 percent of her maximum HP. Additionally, she can heal two more allies chosen at random. However, the amount of HP restored from these extra healings decreases by 15 percent each time, so the second extra heal will restore 30 percent less than the original heal.

Ultimate – Felicitous Thunderleap

With this skill, Bailu can heal the entire party for 90 HP plus nine percent of her max HP and apply the Invigorate effect to all allies. These effects are critical in Bailu’s setup, so make energy regeneration a priority for your relic stats.

Talent – Gourdful of Elixir

When an Invigorated ally receives damage, they will recover 36 HP plus an amount equal to 3.6 percent of Bailu’s max HP. This effect can activate twice. If an Invigorated ally receives a killing blow, Bailu will prevent them from dying and restore 120 HP plus an amount equal to 12 percent of her own HP. This effect, however, can only activate once per battle.

Bonus Ability – Aquatic Benediction

Bailu’s bonus ability allows Invigorated characters to take 10 percent less damage, which can make all the difference in tough battles.

Technique – Saunter in the Rain

Using this technique before a battle will provide all allies with the Invigorated state, making them more resilient on the field.

Best Light Cone for Bailu

The best Light Cone for Bailu should amplify her healing power, either outright by buffing the user’s healing or indirectly through raising her HP. Additionally, nearly every Abundance Light Cone offers some combination of those buffs, with a few going above and beyond with some handy extra benefits as well.

Time Waits for No One is Bailu’s signature Light Cone and is suitable for all of her abilities. It increases the wearer’s max HP and outgoing healing by 12 percent each at the base level and has a special feature that allows Bailu to deal some extra lightning damage. Time Waits for No One records how much HP Bailu heals, and when a healed ally attacks a foe, the Light Cone deals damage equal to at least 50 percent of the healing amount to an enemy. At higher levels, that amount increases to 100 percent.

Post-Op Conversation, Natasha’s signature Light Cone, is the best on the list of Bailu’s 4-star options. This Light Cone raises the wearer’s energy regeneration and boosts the healing power of their ultimate.

Warmth Shortens Cold Nights is another recommended option. It provides an HP buff that is even greater than Time Waits for No One–16 percent, instead of 12–and heals all allies for a small amount when the wearer uses their skill or basic attack.

Cornucopia is the best 3-star Light Cone for Bailu. It raises the amount of healing from the user’s skill and ultimate by 12 percent, which is simple but effective.

Best Relics for Bailu

Bailu’s best Relic set as of the launch version is the only one designed for healers: Passerby of Wandering Cloud.

Two-piece effect: Raises outgoing healing by 10 percent

Four-piece effect: Recovers one skill point at the start of battle

You have a couple of choices for her ornaments, though. Sprightly Vonwacq is the popular pick in the community. It raises the user’s HP, and after their speed reaches 145, their position in the turn order increases by 50 percent after entering battle. Another choice is Fleet of the Ageless, which raises the user’s HP by 12 percent. After their speed reaches 120 or higher, the entire party gets an eight percent attack buff.

Bailu’s Relic Stats

Here’s what to focus on if you want to optimize Bailu’s relics:

  • Head: HP
  • Body: HP or outgoing healing
  • Feet: HP and Speed
  • Sphere: HP and elemental damage
  • Link Rope: HP and energy regeneration

Best Teams for Bailu

Bailu can be added to almost any team, except for one with a strong defender such as Gepard, where healing isn’t quite as necessary. Her skills provide a substantial amount of health restoration, which allows teams to run aggressive setups with strong DPS characters like Seele and Sushang without having to worry about keeping them safe. Here are a few team ideas:

  • Bailu, Seele, Bronya, Pela: Pela helps reduce enemy defense, while Bronya lets Seele attack almost endlessly.
  • Bailu, Sushang, Serval, Himeko: Bailu is the sole support tasked with keeping everyone alive while they deal damage to single targets and enemy mobs.
  • Bailu, Gepard, Seele, Sampo: Gepard shields the party while Bailu keeps them healthy. This is a party of impenetrable defense.
  • Bailu, Trailblazer, Serval or Asta, Dan Heng: This is a free-to-play party that covers a variety of enemy weaknesses and has good single-target and AoE coverage
