Why Should You Buy New Characters Through Warps?

You are not required to buy new characters just to enjoy and complete Honkai: Star Rail. You can level up your characters as you play, battle, and collect resources that award XP. However, collecting new characters allows you to vary your party and build upon it using each character’s skills. For example, you might want a dedicated support character in HSR that can debuff enemies as you fight, but you won’t get one without acquiring a character like Pela. It’s worth experimenting with Warps when you have Star Rail Passes, and buying them if you want to own every character. Variety is the spice of life, and there are enough characters in Honkai: Star Rail to make for one incredibly flavorsome meal.
