Honkai Star Rail is expected to release Luocha in Version 1.1 and here’s why you should pull for him.

Why should you pull for Luocha in Honkai Star Rail

Luocha’s element is Imaginary, which is the rarest type of element in the game at the moment. Additionally, he is a healer who takes the Path of Abundance and will be the 3rd healer in the game after the very limited choice of healers in the game at the moment. For this reason alone, Luocha will be a much-needed choice, especially during the later stages of the Forgotten Hall where players will need at least 2 healers or shielders in both teams.

Luocha will be a massive help if players are focusing on pushing forward the contents early on in the game. According to several leaks, Luocha is expected to be added to Honkai Star Rail in patch 1.1 in the second half. Players get to try him out and have a glimpse of his abilities during the battles in the Xianzhou Luofu.

Why is Luocha worth pulling for in HSR

Luocha could potentially become the best healer in Version 1.1 because of his smart healing along with cleansing. Later stages of the game will contain more debuffs and this can easily change the tides of the fight. The cleansing effect and ability of Luocha are extremely useful, especially against strong bosses like Kafka and Cocolia.

They can attack and deal massive debuffs to the target which can be extremely dangerous during fights. Luocha can prevent this by cleansing and keeping the team healthy with his healing. Luocha is also an Imaginary-type element which means he is useful in situations where players need this element for a weakness break.

If you are debating whether to pull him or not, he is definitely a worthy choice and considerably useful for pushing the early stages of the game’s content. Being a healer alongside the Imaginary-type element makes him one of the rarest and most useful characters in the later stages of the game. If players are planning to push the content for the early stages of the game, Luocha greatly helps them in this area. He can easily fill the role in any team that needs defensive support.

Luocha will definitely become relevant for end-game content like Forgotten Hall and Simulated Universe. Luocha is expected to be released in Version 1.1 during the second half after Silver Wolf’s banner. It is important to note that this information is still not confirmed by HoYoverse, a Special Program Live stream will be held by May 26th for the confirmation.
