  • Stars: ★★★★
  • Release: 2.0

"Watchmaker, Master of Dream Machinations" is an Artifact Set introduced in version 2.0 of Honkai Star Rail, typically suited for characters of the Harmony Path, as it significantly enhances support capabilities for the team.

The focal point of this Artifact Set revolves around the Break Effect statistic, providing this stat to both the wearer and their teammates when using the Ultimate Ability on a teammate (common for Harmony characters, although note that Yukong would not benefit from it as she deals damage through this ability).

Characters from the Abundance Path could also be viable, given their tendency to apply the Ultimate Ability to their teammates. However, they generally lean towards other Artifact Sets.

Considering that Break Effect is a somewhat niche statistic, careful consideration is needed when deciding which character to equip with this set. Also, choose your teammates wisely to maximize the group Break Effect boost – this could be beneficial for Damage over Time or Pure Fiction teams, as well as for supporting characters like Xueyi.


2 Pieces Effect
Increases Break Effect by 16%.
4 Pieces Effect
When the wearer uses their Ultimate on an ally, Break Effect for all allies increases by 30% for 2 turn(s). This effect cannot be stacked.
