Should you reroll in Honkai: Star Rail?

The rerolling process in Star Rail is tedious – but is it worth it?

Rerolling is a time-honored tradition in gacha games, but is it something you should attempt in Honkai: Star Rail?

Ultimately, it is up to you, but for most players we don’t recommend it.

Rerolling in Honkai: Star Rail not only takes a long time (~30 minutes), but it also just isn’t super beneficial.

For one, the first banner character is a DPS unit, Seele. These often get powercrept and might lose relevance depending on how HoYoverse balances the game.

Additionally, the hours spent rerolling could have been used to advance through the game and earn premium currency for additional rolls, and just generally learn the game mechanics.

Ultimately, rerolling is a personal decision, but we don’t plan on rerolling when Honkai: Star Rail launches.

What characters should you look out for?

If you are on the fence about rerolling, one of the main characters you should look out for is Bronya.

Bronya (shown above) is a 5-star Harmony Wind/Anemo unit. She is a great support and buffer unit.

You could also try your luck at the featured banner to snag a Seele early on.

What is rerolling?

If you landed on this post because you were confused about the term, we’ve got you covered.

Essentially, rerolling is the act of resetting your account completely and starting from scratch. Doing this allows you to have more chances at getting the gacha characters you want.

Every game is different when it comes to resetting. Some games make it easy, some make it difficult.

Other games have picked up on the practice and actually offer unlimited rerolls until you get the characters you want.

Enjoy Star Rail however you want

For some gamers, the literal act of rerolling is enjoyable. For others, it is a tedious time sink.

We typically prefer to take what fate gives us and make the best of it, but that can cause bottlenecks during the early and mid-game climb.

Rerolling can also be important if you care about PvP – but that actually isn’t something Honkai: Star Rail players will likely have to worry about.
