Between Tingyun and Yukong, who will become the best support character in the current version of Honkai Star Rail 1.1?
Luocha’s banner was released with a new 4-star character with the Imaginary Number and Harmony destiny – Yukong. Similar to Tingyun, another Harmony character, Yukong’s skill set also revolves around buffing damage to the main DPS of the squad. Both of these characters perform their roles very well and are extremely valuable in your squad.
However, many players will be confused when they do not know who to choose and who of these two characters is really suitable for their squad. In the article below, MGN will evaluate and compare the strength of these two fox girls.
Tingyun is a 4-star Harmony character of the Lightning attribute that was released from the early days of Honkai Star Rail. With a magical and seductive beauty and the ability to buff damage as well as restore energy to allies, Tingyun has quickly become a very popular character among players and is present in many different squads. In addition, Tingyun is also a character that has increased the rate of appearing in the previous banner of Jing Yuan, so gamers can also easily own Chu Tianbai Xianzhou Luofu’s Relay.
Tingyun’s Rhythm Rhythm Skill grants 1 ally a Blessing for 3 rounds, increasing their ATK by 25-62.5%. In addition, allies possessing the Blessing will also deal additional Lightning damage to enemies each time they attack them. Her Special Skill restores 50 Energy to an ally and increases the damage dealt by 20%-65% for 2 turns.
As can be seen, the skills of Tingyun buff are very good for your DPS in Honkai Star Rail, and the buffs also last for a long time. However, these buffs only have a single-target effect – this is also a small limitation of her.
Yukong in Honkai Star Rail
Known as the head of the Department of Tianbai Xianzhou Luofu, you can consider Yukong to be Tingyun’s superior. Right from the early days of being provided with a few pictures by leakers, Yukong has made the player community stand out with his “offensive chest, defensive butt” appearance. Not only beauty and appearance, Yukong’s strength is also one of her outstanding advantages.
Yukong is a super cool support with the ability to increase damage and speed of allies, causing enemies to take more damage. Yukong’s skill set is extremely interesting, operating around the Commanding Palace.

Yukong can possess a maximum of 2 Bow Command Marks, obtained from Secret Skills or Combat Skills. The Battle Skill of Thien Cung Dan Dan also increases ATK by 40%-100% for all sides each round with 1 cost of Cung Dan Sign. Yukong’s Ultimate Skill deals a large amount of Imaginary Damage to enemies. Besides, when Yukong is in possession of the Bow, the Ultimate Skill will also greatly increase the Rate and Damage Damage for all of our factions.
After comparing the skills of the two characters, it is easy to see that Yukong will be slightly better than Tingyun in the supporting role in Honkai Star Rail. Yukong’s skill set comprehensively buffs the whole squad from Attack, Speed to Rate and Breakage Damage. Not only that, Yukong’s Thien Phu helps her recover energy very quickly, can continuously use Absolute Skill and become a weakness-breaking machine. Meanwhile, Tingyun’s power is still not too prominent and only has a single-target effect.
However, Tingyun’s buffs are higher than Yukong’s, which can last longer and consume less Combat Skill Points. In squads where your character must regularly use Combat Skills, Tingyun will be a more reasonable choice.
