How does Silver Wolf work in Honkai Star Rail?
As mentioned, Silver Wolf is a Quantum Nihility character focused on debuffing enemies using her different skills. However, one of her unique abilities is to reduce an enemy's toughness based on her allies' elements. Hence, if your team does not have a matching toughness break for enemies, Silver Wolf can ensure that at least one random ally with an unmatched element damages the latter's shields.
Additionally, upon casting the weakness debuff. Enemies will have reduced damage resistance against weakness type for a couple of turns. While this does help your DPS deal increased damage to enemies, you won't have to worry about building unwanted characters to match an enemy's weakness anymore.
Silver Wolf's ultimate ability deals with high bursts of damage and reduces the enemy's DEF stat. Her regular attack can also inflict specific debuffs on enemies, such as reduced attack damage, DEF stat, or SPD.
Is Silver Wolf F2P-friendly in Honkai Star Rail?
While Silver Wolf isn't the most F2P-friendly character you will come across in Honkai Star Rail, she can still provide enough support for your teams in the endgame.

All that's left are Relics and Planar Ornaments, most of which are farmable for free via in-game activities. Hence, you can still bring out Silver Wolf's unmatched potential as a supporting character in Simulated Universe, Forgotten Halls, and more.
