Honkai: Star Rail – Jing Yuan Character Ascension & Materials Guide

Ascending Jing Yuan in Honkai: Star Rail is an essential step in continuing to level him and gaining access to the improvement of his Traces, also known as abilities, in the game. The general of the Cloud Knights in the Xianzhou Luofu is a 5-star Lightning character that follows The Erudition Path. This means that his specialty is dealing damage to multiple enemies at once through AoE (area of effect) attacks. Because of how he is played, Jing Yuan is best utilized as a sub-DPS contributor in a Honkai: Star Rail team comp.

Before adequately inserting him into a party and using him on the battlefield, however, players will need to ascend Honkai: Star Rail’s Jing Yuan to guarantee he reaches the rest of the team’s average level and has the rest of his skills increased enough to make a difference. As players start to get up-to-date with the game’s content, getting new characters means quickly ascending and leveling them to use them against harder opponents.

Ascension Materials To Farm For Jing Yuan In Honkai: Star Rail

Players who want to continue improving their Jing Yuan build in Honkai: Star Rail will need to farm a lot of materials, either by defeating specific monsters or acquiring them with in-game currencies. The main resource players will want to look out for is Immortal Scionette, which usually drops from Mara-Struck Soldiers in Cloudford. This resource is vital for the character, as it and its other tier evolutions allow players to ascend Honkai: Star Rail’s Jing Yuan. The other important resource in his Ascension is Shape Shifter’s Lightning Staff, which drops from a specific Stagnant Shadow in Honkai: Star Rail.

Ultimately, players will use up many resources, along with a considerable amount of Credits in Honkai: Star Rail, to get Jing Yuan to level 80, which is the current level cap for the turn-based RPG. Depending on how to game evolves, it is possible that HoYoverse raises the cap, so players should be ready to farm again in case they need to level the character. Below are all the resources needed for ascending Jing Yuan per level threshold, the rewards players get with each Ascension, and the total number of each resource required for maxing out the Xianzhou Luofu hero, according to Game8:

For early players of Honkai: Star Rail, it may be difficult to farm the necessary resources needed for ascending Jing Yuan in Honkai: Star Rail. In addition, because he is related to the second world the Astral Express visits, most of his materials will be locked behind that content. They will not be so abundantly available if players are still stuck in Herta Space Station or Jarilo-VI.

The recommendation for these cases is to normally progress out of Belobog and, once the Xianzhou Luofu becomes available, start farming for Jing Yuan while still progressing through the main story.

Materials Needed For Jing Yuan’s Traces (Abilities) In Honkai: Star Rail

Jing Yuan uses his Ultimate in Honkai: Star Rail.

Aside from the ascending Jing Yuan himself, players will also be required to level his abilities, also known as Traces. This will allow the character to have stronger abilities and improved stats. Traces cannot all be simultaneously leveled and are separated by tiers. Some will require a certain character level, while most are related to certain Ascension Levels.

Some of the resources needed for leveling Traces are similar to those required to ascend Jing Yuan in Honkai: Star Rail, but there are many key differences that will require alternative farming.

When leveling a character’s Traces, one of the main materials needed is that which is equivalent to their Path. In Jing Yuan’s case, as a The Erudition character, the required material is Key of Inspiration and its higher-tier forms. Along with that, he will eventually need Destroyer’s Final Road, which drops from Echo of War: Destruction’s Beginning. Below is a table with all the required materials for maxing out Jing Yuan’s Traces (abilities) in Honkai: Star Rail, according to Game8:

Jing Yuan Trace Materials In Honkai: Star Rail

Immortal Scionette

Immortal Aeroblossom

Immortal Lumintwig

Key of Inspiration

Key of Knowledge

Key of Wisdom

Destroyer’s Final Road

Tracks of Destiny


Leveling the character’s Traces to the fullest is much more expensive and time-consuming than ascending Honkai: Star Rail’s Jing Yuan up to his level 80 cap. Of course, abilities have a much more direct impact on his on-field performance, from damage output to how certain skills behave. Therefore, maxing out a character’s Traces is recommended as players naturally level them up and ascend them. This will allow them to not completely exhaust their resources and Credits balance but also enjoy the character’s overall evolution.

It is important to remember that when it comes to Immortal Scionette and Key of Inspiration in Jing Yuan’s ascension and Trace leveling, players do not necessarily need to farm for their enhanced versions. Instead, if they have enough of the base resource, they can craft the higher-leveled Immortal Aeroblossom or Key of Knowledge, for instance, through the game’s Omni-Synthesizer.

In fact, at higher levels, it is easier to craft these high-tier items than actually drop them from activities and enemies – their base version is more common, which should then be used for crafting.

Ascending Honkai: Star Rail’s Jing Yuan and getting him to level 80 with all his Traces at the maximum level is a tiring and expensive process, but one that is worth it in the long haul. As of launch, the character is one of the best Erudition heroes in the game and can significantly improve a team’s damage output on the field, especially against wider groups of opponents. He is, however, a limited-time banner character, so players need to be wary of his availability and try their luck against Honkai: Star Rail’s Warp rates to grab him.
