Honkai: Star Rail – Clara Character Guide

In this character guide for Clara, we will be listing all of her active and passive abilities, Traces, Eidolon advancements, light cone/relic/planetary ornament recommendations, and teams/synergies.  

Clara Active and Passive Skills

Clara is a 5-Star Physical elemental character that is following the Path of Destrcution. Clara can be often overlooked by many players as she is a Physical elemental character, much like the Main character. Hence, it does not make sense to recruit her in early game and put her on the team. However, the Main Character can be switched to a Fire elemental character after completing the Jarilo VI main story. Having Clara on the team can be very helpful as she is the stronger bruiser in the game. Every time you use her ultimate ability, she stacks damage reduction. On top of it, she deals a ton of damage to all enemies with her active ability.

Honkai: Star Rail – Clara Character Guide

Players can recruit Clara only through getting lucky on the Starter Warp Banner or the Normal Warp Banner as of now. Clara’s official in-game lore states as follows – “A shy young girl with no home, Clara had no choice but to join the prospectors to survive. She inadvertently reactivated a dormant relic from a past civilization — the robot Svarog. “To have a family.” This is Clara’s response when asked what she wishes for most. Before long, the usually self-servicing prospectors were united as one under the leadership of Svarog. Around the same time, a mysterious prospector was spotted in the Fragmentum, a red-hooded specter adept at retrieving rare relics from the most dangerous places. Terrified prospectors call this ghostly figure… the Bloody Rabbit.”

Traces are special abilities associated with a hero. The character needs to be ascended in order to maximize the use of their Traces. At different ascension, traces can be upgraded. While some are major upgrades that enhance the abilities themselves, others are minor traces that provide stat boosts. Traces are of the following types:

  • Basic Attack (Active)
  • Skill Attack (Active)
  • Ultimate Attack (Active)
  • Talent (Passive)
  • Technique (Passive)

Revenge (Major Trace) (Unlocks at A6)

Floating Minor Traces

Clara Eidolon Bonuses

Players who have played Genshin Impact might be familiar with the Constellation system where the characters acquire different abilities when you feed their duplicate copies into them. Honkai: Star Rail has a similar system but it’s named “Eidolon” in the official in-game terminology. As you summon a duplicate character from the Warp system, they will be converted into an Eidolon for the character that can be enhanced up to 6 times. Each enhancement provides an upgraded ability or add-on effect to existing abilities. The 3rd and the 5th Eidolon enhancements always add base stat and ultimate ability boosts, respectively. 

Eidolon advancements are tough for free-to-play players to obtain as they require a lot of summoning. Being a hero collector RPG, you will get many of them as you simply play and progress.

Clara Light Cones, Relic, and Planetary Ornament Recommendations

Clara is a Destruction type DPS-heavy character that benefits from core stats such as Attack%, Critical Hit Rate%, and Critical Hit Damage%. We would highly recommend to build her with extra Physical damage as it will boost her overall damage from abilities. Being a bruiser, having some extra Health and Defense on Clara is not a bad option at all.

Something Irreplaceable (5-Star Light Cone) – Increases the wearer’s ATK by 24/28/32/36/40%.
