New character – Black Swan
Black Swan is a 5-star Wind element character who follows the path of Nihility.
A Memokeeper of the Garden of Recollection. A mysterious and elegant soothsayer. She often wears a warm smile and is willing to patiently listen to the words of others, thus using such means as a pretext to enter “memories” and gain omniscience over certain matters. A lady passionate about collecting unique memories, yet the thoughts that guide her are hard to glean.
Black Swan is a DPS character capable of inflicting the enemy with “Arcana” through various means. “Arcana” is a unique form of DoT. Black Swan can trigger various additional effects based on the number of “Arcana” stacks on the enemy target.
Here are her skills revealed during the stream:
|Percipience, Silent Dawn
|Deals Wind damage to a single enemy with a chance to inflict Arcana.
|Decadence, False Twilight
|Deals Wind DMG to a single target enemy and any adjacent targets with a chance to inflict Arcana.
Also, there’s a chance to reduce the damaged target’s DEF for a certain number of turns (visible status effects on enemies hit by skill).
|Bliss of Otherworld’s Embrace
|Deal Wind DMG to all enemies.
|Loom of Fate’s Caprice
|When inflicted with Arcana, the enemy will receive DoT DMG at the start of the turn – each stack increases the damage dealt. With more stacks, the effect will be increased and the trigger will do more DoT.
|From Façade to Vérité
|After using the Technique there’s a chance to inflict a stack of Arcana on the target.
New character – Sparkle
Sparkle is a 5-star Quantum element character who follows the path of Harmony.
A member of the Masked Fools. Inscrutable and unscrupulous. A dangerous master of theatrics engrossed in playing roles. A woman of countless masks and able to wear endless faces. Wealth, status, power… None of this matters to Sparkle. The only thing that can get her to move is “amusement.”
Sparkle is a support character capable of recovering Skill Points for allies and increasing the ally Skill Point limit. Additionally, Sparkle can Advance the Action of a designated ally, increase their CRIT DMG, and boost the DMG dealt by all allies.
Here are her skills revealed during the stream:
|Deals Quantum damage to a single enemy.
|Increases CRIT DMG of a single ally and advances their action forward (up to a degree).
|The Hero with a Thousand Faces
|Recovers Skill Points for the team.
Quite possibly 4 Skill Points (it’s visible for a split second during the animation).
|While Sparkle is on the battlefield, increases the max number of Skill Points by 2.
Whenever an ally consumes a Skill Point, all allies’ DMG increases.
New character – Misha
Misha is a 4-star Ice element character who follows the path of Destruction.
A lovable and thoughtful bellboy at The Reverie Hotel. He wishes to become an intergalactic adventurer like his grandfather. He is extremely hardworking and is skilled at fixing a variety of machines. He also has a fondness for listening to the interstellar rumors the guests share with him. He hopes he can grow up faster and looks forward to embarking on his star-treading journey.
Misha is a DPS character with Crowd Control capabilities. His Ultimate has a chance to Freeze enemies. After allies consume Skill Points, Misha’s Ultimate can also unleash additional Hits Per Action.
Here are his skills revealed during the stream:
|E—Excuse Me, Please!
|Deals Ice damage to a single enemy.
|Deals Ice DMG to a single target enemy and any adjacent targets
|G—Gonna Be Late!
|Deals Ice damage to a single enemy and then deals Ice damage to random enemies multiple times. Each hit has a chance to Freeze the target.
|As allies consume Skill Points, Misha’s Ultimate will add more random hits to it.
|Wait, You Are So Beautiful!
|After using the Technique, creates a dimension that lasts for period of time. Enemies caught in the dimension are frozen in time and stop all their actions.

Penacony, the Planet of Festivities, will be the first planet added to the game since Honkai: Star Rail release! A new planet means new zones with new treasure boxes to find – so a lot of free Stellar Jades!
Information about the new planet:
- Penacony is a prison colony that was transformed into a hotel,
- Penacony is split into Dreamscapes and in 2.0 we will visit the Golden Hour dreamscape,
- Clockie will act as our guide in the Golden Hour,
- The dreamscapes will vary and introduce new ways of traversing the world – you can for example walk on walls to reach places you’re not able to do normally,
- You need to gather special charges to do the gravity shifts,
- Another new way to traverse the world is by using illusions and puzzles,
- Penacony main story will last from 2.0 to 2.2 and an epilogue will be released in 2.3.
Also remember – the planet will come with new Calyxes and this means new materials, which will be used by the characters released during the 2.x patch cycle. So don’t pre-farm trace materials for Black Swan, Sparkle, and Misha!
Here are some of the new enemies that were revealed during the stream:
Stellaron Hunter: Sam
One of the Stellaron Hunters, a mysterious warrior donning formidable armor.The mecha suit possesses the power to unleash fiery attacks, engulfing the battlefield in flames.
Also, the trailer pretty heavily hinted at Sam being somehow related to Firefly (or rather them being the same person). But judge it by yourself – they have the same color scheme, Sam has firefly wings and first, we see Firefly falling down only to transition later to Sam flying and fighting Acheron.
Dreamjolt Troupe Enemies
Some objects and facilities have gained self-awareness due to the influence of the dreamscape. After being tamed by The Family, some of them formed the Sweet Dreams Troupe to provide entertainment for guests.
Those affected by negative emotions and having turned into feral monsters are referred to as the Dreamjolt Troupe.
Memory Zone Meme Enemies
The enemies of “Memory Zone Meme” are related to the subconscious, memory, and underlying thought processes, with each meme being an image outlined by the subconscious. In the Dreamscape world, there are always corners untouched by sweet dreams, hiding negative emotions deep within.
Something Unto Death
An entity that bears certain cognitions formed from an accruement of subconscious fragments in the Memory Zone. A mysterious and dangerous Memory Zone Meme, seen as the “death” that shouldn’t exist in dreams. Its sinister shadow wanders within the Twelve Hours, bringing unforeseen calamity wherever it goes. It spreads misfortune like a sharp blade, casting a shadow of death over beautiful dreams.
Hanu’s Prison Break
Dr. Edward has created a new memory bubble with a unique theme, receiving rave reviews from customers who have experienced it. What makes it so exciting? You won’t know until you see it with your own eyes. Talk to Dr. Edward immediately and try it yourself.
A 4-star selector will be a reward for this event that contains: Sampo, Guinaifen, Asta, and Yukong.
On your way to Penacony, you receive a tabloid in your inbox. It may be worth examining to see if there is any noteworthy news.
