You can buy the Solitary Healing Light Cone for Guinaifen from the Herta Shop in Honkai Star Rail. This is because four-star characters do not get a signature Light Cone.

The Solitary Healing Light Cone increases Guinaifen's Break Effect by 20%. When she activates her ultimate, her DoT damage increases by 24% for two turns. Additionally, when an enemy suffering from DoT is defeated, she regenerates four energy.
