The Ashblazing Grand Duke
  • Stars: ★★★★
  • Release: 1.5

The Ashblazing Grand Duke is a Relic Set in Honkai Star Rail that is quite unique, and its description may raise several questions. On this page, we will clarify exactly how it works.

This is a set that we can equip on characters who deal significant damage through their Follow-Up Attacks. Ironically, we do not want to equip the 4-piece set on characters whose damage relies almost entirely on these types of attacks (Clara and Topaz and Numby would be two clear examples).

This is because the 4-piece bonus provides an Attack bonus that can accumulate when we hit with our Follow-Up Attacks, but this bonus will never apply to these attacks. Instead, it will apply to the damage of the rest of the abilities (Basic Attack, Skill, Ultimate). For this reason, we want to equip it on characters that have good damage with their Follow-Up Attacks (regardless of the number of times they perform them) but also have good damage with the rest of their abilities. Characters like Himeko, for example.

Stats

2 Pieces Effect
Increases the DMG dealt by follow-up attacks by 20%.
4 Pieces Effect
When the wearer uses follow-up attacks, increases the wearer's ATK by 6% every time the follow-up attack deals DMG. This effect can stack up to 8 time(s) and lasts for 3 turn(s). This effect is removed the next time the wearer uses a follow-up attack.
