Gepard Build and Teams

First time looking at Gepard, he’s looks a lot like male Arthur pendragon from Fate/Prototype and Fate Grand/Order. Handsome, tall, blonde hair with shining armor, he’s designated tank from Honkai Star Rail and has been haunting anyone who’s been rerolling for Bronya.

He appear like 3 times out of 6 times of my rerolling. Not a lot yes, but considering how long it takes for Honkai Star Rail to reroll that’s still annoying.

He is captain of the Silvermane Guards and an outstanding warrior of Belobog. He is meticulous to the core and is always true to himself.

Gepard Build Guide

Honkai Star Rail Gepard Build

Gepard is a tank and he’s doing pretty good job at it. His skill: Intimidating Strike deals Ice DMG to the enemy with chance to freeze them for 1 turn. When they’re frozen, the enemy will take Ice Dot DMG equal to certain percentage of Gepard ATK each turn.

His skill is good, yes our main focus will be his defense capability. His Ultimate: Enduring Bulwark will apply shield to all allies and absorbing DMG based on Gepard DEF+.

He also have talent: Unyielding Will to ensure his survivability, when struck with a killing blow instead of becoming incapacitated, Gepard’s HP immediately restores at least 25% of his Max HP. It can only happen once in a battle, but it’s still a win.

Gepard Light Cones

Building Gepard means stacking as much DEF as possible, so all light cones with DEF increase is good for him. Sorted below:

  • Moment of Victory: Increases the wearer’s DEF by 24/28/32/36/40% and Effect Hit Rate by 24/28/32/36/40%. Increases the chance for the wearer to be attacked by enemies. When the wearer is attacked, increase their DEF by an additional 24/28/32/36/40% until the end of the wearer’s turn.
  • Day One of My New Life: Increases the wearer’s DEF by 16/18/20/22/24%. After entering battle, increases DMG RES of all allies by 8/9/10/11/12%. Effects of the same type cannot stack.
  • Trend of The Universal Market: Increases the wearer’s DEF by 16/20/24/28/32%. When the wearer is attacked, there is a 100/105/110/115/120% base chance to Burn the enemy. For each turn, the wearer deals DoT that is equal to 40/50/60/70/80% of the wearer’s DEF for 2 turn(s).
  • Amber (S5): Increases the wearer’s DEF by 16/20/24/28/32%. If the wearer’s current HP is lower than 50%, increases their DEF by a further 16/20/24/28/32%.
  • This Is Me!: Increases the wearer’s DEF by 16/20/24/28/32%. Increases the DMG of the wearer when they use their Ultimate by 60/75/90/105/120% of the wearer’s DEF. This effect only apply 1 time per enemy target.

Gepard Relics Sets and Planar Ornament

For tank or defense focused character, the best choice will be Knight of Purity Palace from Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Holy Hymn in Cloudford, Xianzhou Luofu.

4 Knight of Purity Palace(2) Increases DEF by 15%.
(4) Increases the max DMG that can be absorbed by the shield created by the wearer by 20%.

For Planar Ornament (Link and Rope), the best will be Belobog of the Architects since it’s have defense focused stats. Unfortunately, this set only can be obtained from Herta Simulated Universe, World 6 so it will take time to get proper sets.

Belobog of the Architects(2) Increases the wearer’s DEF by 15%. When the wearer’s Effect Hit Rate is 50% or higher, the wearer gains an extra 15% DEF.

In the meantime, you can use other easier-to-obtain planar sets like Fleet of the Ageless from HSU World 3 which will increase all allies ATK by 8%.

Fleet of the AgelessIncreases the wearer’s Max HP by 12%. When the wearer’s SPD reaches 120 or higher, all allies’ ATK increases by 8%.

Usual “better than sorry” team with tank and healer. You can replace dps, support, and healer with anyone you want depend on your account.
