Honkai Star Rail includes several playable characters from different paths and elements. Among them, Topaz and Numby are extremely popular and are used in a wide variety of team compositions. However, considering not all characters pair well with other units, many must be curious regarding what individuals they should avoid while using Topaz and Numby in Honkai Star Rail.

This article lists five characters players should avoid using with Topaz and Numby in Honkai Star Rail.


Seele, Arlan, Himeko, and 2 other characters players should avoid using with Topaz in Honkai Star Rail

1) Arlan

Arlan, the head of Herta Space Station's security department in Honkai Star Rail, is a four-star character treading on the Path of Destruction and wielding the Lightning element. He is a unit overshadowed by other characters following the same path.

Arlan's kit enhances his damage output while consuming his health. The modifiers on his abilities are substantially dreadful. Pairing him with Topaz will result in the team lacking considerable damage, and players might face difficulties while clearing various activities. Therefore, players should avoid pairing Arlan with Topaz in Honkai Star Rail.


2) Trailblazer (Destruction)

Trailblazer is the main figure in Honkai Star Rail and a part of the Astral Express crew. At the beginning of the game, they tread on the Path of Destruction and wield the physical element.

Trailblazer's kit consists of a skill that deals physical damage to three adjacent enemies. Depending on the player's choice, their ultimate enhances their basic attack or skill. When fully built, they do not sufficiently damage their opponents, which causes them to be obscured.

While Trailblazer is the MC of the game, it is not recommended to pair them with Topaz & Numby as they might not perform appropriately with the latter.


3) Yanqing

Yanqing, the lieutenant of the Xianzhou Alliance's Cloud Knights, is one of the standard five-star characters in Honkai Star Rail. He treads on the Path of the Hunt and wields the Ice element, excelling in dealing single-target damage. Players can obtain him by rolling in any banner or guarantee his arrival by rolling in the Stellar Warp banner 300 times.

Yanqing's kit in Honkai Star Rail is relatively simple and allows him to deal significant damage to his adversaries. His skill and ultimate deal Ice damage to a single enemy. Topaz is exceptional at single-target damage, and Yanqing also excels in it. Pairing two of them in a team might not work as both excel in the same field, which can cause players difficulties while clearing various activities.


4) Seele

A key member of the Faction Wildfire, Seele is a Quantum character treading on the Path of the Hunt who excels in single-target damage.

Seele can deal an absurd amount of damage to her adversaries utilizing her kit, which also bestows her with an extra turn when she defeats them. However, pairing her with Topaz is not very viable as both characters tread on the same Path. Furthermore, since her kit is focused on increasing follow-up damage, Topaz works better with characters that specialize in follow-up attacks.


5) Hook

Hook is the self-proclaimed leader of the adventure squad, The Moles. She is a four-star character treading on the Path of Destruction and wields the Fire element. Players can obtain her by rolling in any Warp banners.

Hook's kit revolves around dealing a decent amount of damage through DoT (Damage over Time) by inflicting the Burn state on the enemies. Topaz & Numby also specializes in dealing damage through DoT in the game. Both also wield the same element, so they are not viable together, as players require various elements to break the enemy's shields efficiently. Thus, they should avoid using Hook with Topaz & Numby in Honkai Star Rail.
