How can I improve my Energy regeneration?
The majority of characters in Honkai Star Rail in version 1.3 have a base 100% Energy regeneration rate and will naturally gain Energy through dealing damage, taking damage or defeating enemies. One way to increase your Energy regeneration rate is via Light Cones or Consumables.
Another method is to increase your character's speed (SPD). This will allow them to cast abilities more frequently, dealing damage and killing enemies more often.
Certain characters also unlock Energy Regeneration Rate bonuses based on their Eidolon level. Asta at Eidolon Level 4 gains a 15% increase if she has two or more Charging Stacks. Meanwhile, Yanqing at Eidolon Level 2 gains an 10% increase to his Energy Regeneration Rate. However, these type of bonuses are very rare and most characters have a static 100% regen rate.
