How to forge the Divine Weapon in Honkai: Star Rail

Tales of the Fantastic, the latest limited-time event in Honkai: Star Rail 1.2, ties in with a new chapter of the Trailblazer’s story. You can only partake in it after completing the “A Dragon Gallant, Its Ocean Distant” mission, the latest Trailblaze Mission and one part of the Xianzhou Luofu arc.

In it, Mr. Xiyan, a storyteller with a wild imagination, asks for the Trailblazer’s help with writing a story inspired by the events of how they and General Jing Yuan exposed the antagonist Phantylia and overcame her in battle.

Tales of the Fantastic has three parts to its Hero’s Journey. Each part came out consecutively. You can unlock each part from the event’s Travel Log promo, and each requires speaking to Mr. Xiyan and revisiting the places where the actual fighting took place. He then rewrites the scenes with extra flair to better market it to readers. The third part of that Hero’s Journey involves “forging the Divine Weapon,” which is more complicated than it lets on.

Here’s what you need to know about forging the Divine Weapon in Honkai: Star Rail.

Forging the Divine Weapon isn’t necessarily difficult, there’s just a lot to remember. One mission on Herta’s Space Station tasked the Trailblazer with remembering a specific sequence used to run a machine. Forging the Divine Weapon is similar. You have to remember this sequence as is:

  • Put in the Bona Aqua
  • Put in the Ignis Aureliae
  • Put in the coolant
  • Put in the hilt-wood from the Arbor
  • Add more Bona Aqua

These steps will forge the Star-Shattering Blade of Truth, which isn’t a weapon that you can actually use, but stays in your inventory like a decorative paperweight. You can even rename the blade if the original name is too much of a mouthful for you.

What rewards do I get from forging the Divine Weapon?

Forging the Divine Weapon is just one part of the Tales of the Fantastic. That said, it will reward you some resources separate from the rest of the event.

Here’s what you get for completing this part of the mission:

  • 6 Adventure Logs
  • 4 Condensed Aether
  • 30,000 Credits

It’s not much on its own, but it adds up if you complete all the parts of the mission.

What date does the Tales of the Fantastic event end?

Tales of the Fantastic ends at 4 a.m. ET on August 7, 2023, so you have plenty of time to forge the Divine Weapon and complete all other parts of the event.

Tales of the Fantastic isn’t a make or break limited-time event. It will net you many rewards like XP books and Credits, but it also involves many tedious battles and fetch quests. Do with that information as you will.

Honkai: Star Rail is currently available for PC, iOS, and Android.

How to respec in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Cal stands beneath the clouds in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor key art.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor comes packing a significant upgrade to its predecessor's customization, exploration, and other features – including a whole new skill tree for you to dig into on your journey through the galaxy. This eagerly anticipated sequel boasts a total of three main skill types and nine total trees to invest in, meaning that you'll have an opportunity to build main character Cal Kestis however you'd like. Luckily, if you're feeling any remorse about where you've put your points, you can easily respec them and try again – for a price.

However, before we tell you how to respec, keep in mind that you can earn skill points infinitely, so you can technically max out every skill tree by the end of the game. This means that most of your choices won't hamper your progress too much, especially if you're exploring thoroughly, scanning everything with BD-1, and uncovering hidden skill points all around the biomes. Still, if you're regretting a skill or two, let's respec them, shall we?

At the bottom-left of the screen, you'll see a button that you can press that says Reset All Skills, allowing you to respec all of your skill points.

Does Honkai: Star Rail have co-op?

Coming from the same team that brought us Genshin Impact, Honkai: Star Rail shares a lot in common with that mega-hit. The most noticeable is the art style and gacha mechanics, but what about the ability to play co-op? After you've added friends to your friends list, will this game let you actually jump in to help your friends out and explore the world together? Let's see how you can, and can't, help your friends out in Honkai: Star Rail.
Is there co-op in Honkai: Star Rail?

The sad reality is, unlike Genshin, there's no direct co-op mechanic in Honkai: Star Rail to allow you and any number of friends to join up together. That begs the question, though, as to what the point of having a friends list even is. Well, while you can't directly help, or be helped, by a friend, there is a way you can assist one another.
How to use a friend's Support Characters
Any person you add to your friend list will be selectable to summon in one of their Support Characters to join your party. There are a few restrictions to this system, though. For one, that Support Character will only stick with you for a set period of time, and they can only be used in Calyxes and Caverns of Corrosion. Additionally, any Support Character you take will have their level scaled to your level, meaning you can't borrow an overpowered unit to carry you through any encounters.

All free characters in Honkai: Star Rail

Honkai: Star Rail starts the player with enough characters to cover almost every Element and Path in its complex combat system.

Elements, like in Pokémon, have type weaknesses that players should take advantage of to deplete health and break armor. Paths are more like specific roles that characters play, like damage dealers, shielders, and healers. Honkai: Star Rail further challenges the players to experiment with specific abilities and Light Cones for each character once they get comfortable enough with combat multipliers, but that's for later. It gives the player just about everything they need for free before they choose to pull for more powerful characters later in the game.
