How to get Sparkle

This heroine can only be obtained during the event Jump. In the near future, this banner will be launched as part of the second phase of patch 2.0 (starts on February 28). If you want to be one of the first to know about her next rerun, we advise you to bookmark this article.

We add that HoYoverse only once gave a 5-star character in honor of winning the nomination for “best mobile game of 2023” and never for completing various events, so that you will most likely be able to unlock Sparkle only with the help of Jumps.

Progression of Sparkle's characteristics

In the table below you can see how the heroine's basic parameters change as her level increases.

LevelAttack PowerDefenseHPSpeed
17166190101
20139129371101
40267248713101

Note that her critical damage, critical hit chance and taunt are 50%, 5% and 100 units respectively at any level, and her energy reserve is 110 units.

Advantages and disadvantages of Twilight

Thanks to her unique abilities, she can buff her allies, enhancing their offensive capabilities. Its advantages also include:

  • Pairs well with hypercarries who constantly need skill points to perform their most powerful attacks, as she not only increases the total number of skill points, but can also restore a significant number of them with her super ability.
  • Has the cheapest of the Harmony characters ult (110 units), and basic attacks, thanks to the trail, accelerate energy recovery. All this allows the heroine to use her ultimate more often.
  • An extremely versatile support, which, in addition to issuing skill points, can increase the critical damage and attack power of allies, as well as promote their action forward and increase the total damage dealt, which will be useful for absolutely any team in the game.
  • Fits perfectly into quantum monos packs, since in this case it provides allies with additional bonuses to attack power.
  • Has high base health, which also increases in traces, which significantly increases the heroine’s survivability.
  • Relatively easy to use assembly, since to perform its main function it needs to pump up only three characteristics: critical damage, speed and energy recovery.
  • It fulfills its main role well without opening eidolons or having signature weapons, which F2P players will certainly like.
  • The technique gives the group invisibility, which will allow you to calmly explore locations without being distracted by enemies.

Sparkle in Honkai Star Rail: guide to the best builds

However, this masked klutz cannot be called ideal, since she also has her own shortcomings, namely:

  • The heroine will be able to maximize her potential only in a quantum mono pack.
  • The buff from the skill lasts only 1 turn and is applied only to one character (in the absence of E6), which is why it is recommended to use Sparkle in teams with one damage dealer.
  • Does not combine well with damage over time commands, since DoT does not crit, which is why the critical damage buff will be useless for damage dealers playing through it.

Twilight's Abilities

When using the basic attack “One-Team Show”, she inflicts quantum damage equal to 50~130% of her attack power to the enemy. At the same time, it restores 20 units of energy and penetrates 30 units of durability.

Explanation: Standard, unremarkable strikes. The Almanac trail slightly increases their usefulness, as it gives an additional increase to energy recovery of 10 units. However, with Twilight you are unlikely to ever run out of skill points, so you will still rarely use her basic attacks.

After using the “Floating in Dreams” skill, she will be able to increase the critical damage of the selected squad member by 12-30% of her own parameter value plus 27-54% for 1 turn and advance his action forward by 50%. When using a skill on yourself, its effect does not advance. The skill restores 30 units of energy.

Explanation: An excellent buff, which at skill level 10 and at 150% crit. Sparkle's damage can increase the corresponding parameter of the main DD by 81% and at the same time make him walk more often. By the way, with the “Artificial Flower” trace, this bonus is valid until the start of the ally’s next turn, and, therefore, applies to all his bonus attacks and ultimates performed up to that moment.

Using the superpower “Heroine of a Thousand Faces” “, she immediately gives 4 skill points to the team and imposes a Cipher on all its members. Each character with this status increases the effect of increasing damage with the heroine's talent by 6-12% for 2 turns.

Explanation: The key element of the ultimate is, of course, the restoration of skill points, which will allow damage dealers like Moon Eater to freely use their skills to their full potential. The cipher will make it possible to increase its overall damage. Please note that this is a direct increase, not a multiplier. Example calculations are shown below.

As for the heroine’s passive talent – ​​“Distraction”, it increases the maximum number of skill points of the group by 2. Each skill point used by an ally increases the damage done by all team members by 3-7.5%. The duration of the bonus is 2 turns, and it can be stacked up to three times.

Explanation: If you have Sparkle in your squad, your pool of skill points will increase to 7, which is very useful, because with your ult you can restore 4 points at once. So now you are unlikely to have situations where you burn extra points. As for the increase in damage, without taking into account the superpower at the 10th level of talent you can get an increase in damage of 18%, and with it – 58% (if the Cipher is applied to all 4 characters).

Not possible Also not to mention the “Unreliable Narrator” technique, the use of which allows you to gain the Stealth status for 20 seconds. While it is active, enemies cannot detect your characters. When the battle begins, the heroine immediately restores 3 skill points to the squad.

Sparkle's Traces

In addition to the above abilities, the heroine’s leveling tree also includes other enhancements that provide passive bonuses or permanent increases to characteristics. They mainly increase her resistance to effects, maximum health and critical damage. You can see all the traces in the pictures below.

Sparkle's Eidolons

Unlocking them requires materials of the same name, issued when duplicates of the heroine appear, which, of course, is random. And considering the rarity of 5-star character drops, be prepared to spend a lot of money and time on this. Luckily, even without eidolons, Twilight can effectively serve as a team buffer.
 
If you do decide to open them up, you can stop at E1 and E2, which significantly increase the heroine's usefulness as a support character, as she will further increase the damage done by allies, allowing them to ignore enemy defenses and increasing their attack power. The list below covers all eidolons.

  1. Hovering Distrust – increases the duration of the Cipher cast by the ult by 1 turn. Increases attack power by 40% for characters with this status.
  2. An absolute fantasy – each level of talent summation allows allies to ignore 8% of the enemy's defense in case of damage to him.
  3. A pipe dream – the level of the skill increases by two, and the level of the basic attack – by one. The maximum level for the first increases to 15, and for the second – to 10.
  4. Life is a game – the maximum number of skill points increases by 1, and the number of skill points issued by the ult increases to 5.
  5. Double truth – the level of ult and talent increases by two. The maximum level for both increases to 15.
  6. Narrative ambiguity – the skill increases an ally’s critical damage by an additional 30% of the heroine’s critical damage. This bonus is given to all allies who have the Cipher status.

How to play as Sparkle

This masked klutz is ideal for squads with hypercarries that eat up skill points at an incredible rate (Qingque, Moon Eater), as it completely eliminates their skill point shortage problem. It is also worth using for beginners who have not yet learned how to properly build squads and rotations to effectively use skills.

Remember that thanks to the “Artificial Flower” trail, the critical damage buff lasts until the target’s next turn, that is, it will work for all bonus attacks and ultimates of the character. For this reason, it is recommended to combine Sparkle with damage dealers that have bonus hits (Doctor Ratio, Topaz, Jing Yuan).

Sparkle in Honkai Star Rail: guide to the best builds

The heroine must use the skill every turn in order to maintain the critical damage buff (it should only be applied to the main DD). If there is no character on the team who can spend more than one skill point at a time, then it is highly desirable that three members of the squad use their skills every cycle – this is necessary to receive a permanent bonus on overall damage.

It's important to carefully set Twilight's speed so that she goes right after your main damage dealer, as this will buff him and push his action forward, giving him the opportunity to go twice in one round. The optimal rotation will look like this:

  1. If possible, use Twilight's technique to immediately gain 3 additional skill points, which will allow you to safely use skills with all characters in the first round, thereby receiving the full damage bonus.
  2. When Twilight's turn passes, be sure to use her skill is on the main damage dealer. This buff only lasts for one turn, so don't spray it on other characters. If you're lucky, the main DD will immediately follow the support due to the promotion of its action by 50%.
  3. It is advisable to use the ult when ready, since it not only gives additional… skill points, but also increases the overall damage of the pack. You can wait to use it only if you already have 7 skill points, since the restored skill points can simply burn out.

Best builds for Sparkle

< h3>Best Light Cones

When choosing weapons, you should take a closer look at those options that increase critical damage, energy recovery and/or speed, and also provide some additional buffs to the team. The table below shows the most interesting examples.

When 1 skill point is restored (even if the maximum number is exceeded), the owner receives 1 stack of Colorful Flame. After collecting 4 stacks, the wearer receives a Mask for four turns. Signature for Sparkle, which significantly increases the buff from her skill and gives the team additional bonuses, which, thanks to the ult, will work almost constantly. However, if you are aiming to get E2, then we still advise you to knock out the eidolons, and not take the signature weapon.

Date with the stars (4 stars)

HP: 1058

ATK: 423

DEF: 330

The resulting effect replaces the previous one. Bonuses are not cumulative and disappear if the hero dies. Gives good additional buffs to all allies in the squad, although it does not strengthen Sparkle herself in any way. In addition, you can only get it from a paid Battle Pass. If you do not plan to knock out a signature or use a quantum mono group, then you can try to remove this cone from the power supply.

Dance! Dance! Dance! (4 stars)

HP: 952

ATK: 423

DEF: 396

Promotes the actions of allies by 16-24% after the wearer uses an ult. Many often underestimate the usefulness of this cone, but it allows support allies to make more moves per cycle. With Twilight's skill, the main DD is likely to go right after her.

DEF: 396

Using the skill increases by 16-32% the damage of an ally for one turn who walks after the weapon bearer.

In addition, getting the 5th overlay should not be difficult even at the beginning of the game.

  • Additional characteristics: critical damage > speed > HP%, Defense%, effect resistance

Best commands for Sparkle

As we previously noted, this heroine will be able to reveal her full potential only in quantum mono packs. Fortunately, the game already has a sufficient number of characters of the indicated element so that you can assemble a similar squad with relative ease if you have a Silver Wolf.

Next are the teams in which there is a hypercarry, which requires a large number of skill points. Now these include the Moon Eater and Qingque. Next come damage dealers with bonus attacks, since they will be able to use the increase in critical damage from Sparkle’s skill for a longer time.

However, bonuses to attack power, crit. damage and overall damage, as well as additional skill points will be useful to almost any squad, so you can use it everywhere. In the table below we have indicated the optimal commands with Sparkle.

Pumping up Sparkle

How to increase abilities (what to upgrade first)

The pictures below demonstrate the materials and their quantities required to maximally level up a basic attack, skill, superpower and talent.

  • The Celestial Note, Celestial Interlude, and Celestial Melody are obtained from a sepal located in Penaconia, or through Synthesis.
  • Things of Thoughts, Fragments of Impressions, and Dream Shards are obtained from opponents in Penaconia, quests, and enemies in the Virtual Universe, or from using Synthesis. They can also be purchased for unquenchable ashes in the Pom-Pom store.
  • Past Wormhole Disasters – obtained by fighting the Skarakabaz boss in the echo of war “Old Wormhole Crater”, located in the Isolated Zone (Gertha Space Station).
  • Fatemarks – obtained in the Virtual Universe, issued with a battle pass and can be purchased for unquenchable ashes at the Pom-Pom store. Sometimes they are rewards in temporary events.

As for the priority of leveling up abilities, we recommend leveling up a skill, superpower and talent at the same time, since all three allow you to buff your allies. If you have limited resources, then give priority to the skill (that is, it should be 1-2 levels ahead of other abilities). Increase basic attacks according to the residual principle.

How to elevate a character
