Introducing the Game modes in Honkai: Star Rail

The game of now offers, 3 different game modes in Honkai: Star Rail with each offering different challenges and unique monsters in the game to defeat. Not to forget the varying rewards that come with these different game modes. After investing multiple hours in the game, we have come up with the following types of missions and game modes that players can go for while in the Astal Express.

1. Resource-based Missions

Resource-based missions are the most basic missions you will find in the Honkai universe, there are many dungeons from where players can farm resources and materials to progress their account. Some of these dungeons in the game are however locked from the beginning and their availability depends on the trailblazer level of the players.

It is in these missions are based on 7 different Calyx stages, each corresponding to one of the 7 Paths. Players can mine different character-specific equipment and even some in-game resources used for summoning heroes from the banners in the game. It costs around 10 Trailblaze Power to do one Calyx stage. These stages are repetitive in nature and hence provide great farming runs for the players.

2. Forgotten Hall Missions

Forgotten Hall Missions are arcade-type missions in the game where the goal is to defeat the given number of enemies that players will encounter at a specific level. The number of turns required to defeat all the enemies defines how many stars players will get at the end of the stage, there are 0 to 3 stars available depending on how many turns players take. Rewards post-clearing the missions are also dependent on these stars.

Forgotten Hall is divided into two parts: Memory and Memory of Chaos. Memory has 15 sub-levels to its name and has rewards for clearing each one of them. Once the whole Memory stage has been completed, then Stellar Jade is awarded as part of the rewards for completing the whole level. Memories of Chaos are similar to the Memory but the only difference is they are harder than Memory thus each individual level has better rewards.

3. Simulated Universe Missions

Simulated Universe is a special sort of game mode where players enter an alternate universe where random power buffs are spread all across the map, with each offering something unique to the players. The game mode is divided into two main parts, namely Exploration Mode and Challenge Mode. In Exploration mode, players get the chance to clear the dungeons and gather Curios and Blessings (random buffs) as well as new allies.

Challenge mode is a bit more direct, where rewards are earned by defeating pre-designed enemies. It should be noted that rewards are better in the challenge mode as the difficulty is a bit more compared to the other modes. These modes are repetitive and reset on a weekly basis hence giving a very good opportunity for players to collect valuable resources in the game.
