Honkai Star Rail: Best Early Forgotten Hall Teams
The Forgotten Hall contains a good portion of Honkai Star Rail’s endgame. Each of its 15 floors is designed to push teams to their limits, and successfully beating each challenge rewards players with a shower of currencies, both premium and otherwise.
Players can earn up to 3000 Stellar Jades and about 300K Credits for a complete Forgotten Hall run. This might be an endgame activity, but that doesn’t mean the first handful of floors can’t be conquered early. Here are some pointers on how to find success in the first half of Honkai Star Rail’s Forgotten Hall.
How to Build Forgotten Hall Team Compositions
As with all gacha games, mileage will vary depending on a player’s luck. Some may have access to characters that others do not. Thankfully, the power difference between 4-star and 5-star characters in Honkai Star Rail isn’t too extreme, which means anyone can build and use whoever appears in their character banner pulls.
The very early Forgotten Hall floors are relatively easy. However, in order to get complete every star challenge, players need to make a team that can survive and inflict enough damage to defeat enemies within the specified number of turn cycles. Always check the floor’s active modifiers and build a team around it and the enemies present since Forgotten Hall challenges may change with every major patch.
After taking elemental weaknesses and modifiers into consideration, try to have a team comprised of either of the following:
- Two tanks, one DPS, and a Support unit
- Tank, Healer, DPS, and a flex pick
The reasoning behind these very specific roles is that Honkai Star Rail’s roster is still lacking. As of the launch version, There are only two F2P-friendly tanks and one free healer. More characters will eventually be added to the game but even so, players are unlikely to get the characters they need without constantly rolling for them. This issue becomes especially problematic on Forgotten Hall floors that require two teams later on.
Roster issues aside, the first team comp revolves around the two tanks constantly protecting the team while the DPS and Support units handle all their damage-dealing needs. An example of this would be Fire Trailblazer, March 7th, Dan Heng, and Tingyun. Dan Heng with buffs from Tingyun will be the one dealing the brunt of the team’s damage while the others juggle shielding and Skill Point generation. Trailblazer also makes for a good secondary attacker.
As for the second team, a lineup like Fire Trailblazer, Natasha, Dan Heng, and an element-appropriate secondary DPS or Support unit (Asta, Hook, Physical Trailblazer, etc.) can handle much of the early Forgotten Hall floors with no issues with survivability or damage output.
Five-star characters aren’t essential in Honkai Star Rail, but they will make encounters easier since they practically serve as upgrades to 4-star units. Feel free to swap between characters who have similar roles in a team, such as Gepard and March 7th, Bronya and Tingyun, and Dan Heng and Seele.
It’s worth emphasizing how useful Fire Trailblazer is in the Forgotten Hall. They can absorb and deal damage reliably at the cost of having no innate healing and low base SPD. Meanwhile, Serval can fill in for either the DPS or flex pick slots in case the team needs a strong AOE Lightning character.
Pela also deserves a special mention. She deals decent Ice damage and, more importantly, she can dispel active buffs from enemies, making her invaluable against boss fights. Players can use Pela and March 7th together to control the flow of buffs and debuffs, assuming that they have the Purify trace unlocked for the latter.
Lastly, always make sure to have upgraded Relics and Light Cones before entering the Forgotten Hall. Every stat matters if players want to beat a floor with more than 14 turn cycles remaining. Relics can be farmed in Cavern of Corrosion nodes while Light Cones can be obtained through gacha banners, quests, and NPC vendors.
Honkai Star Rail is available now on PC, iOS, and Android. A PlayStation version is coming soon.
