Stellar Shimmer Day 2 Best Teams

Cycle of Suffering Premium Team

Stellar Shimmer Day 2 Premium Team
Acheron Silver Wolf Pela Aventurine

Acheron and Silver Wolf are the trial characters for Day 2.

Since Acheron is a trial character for Day 2, we recommend using her with Silver Wolf, Pela, and Aventurine. They can consistently apply debuffs, allowing you to quickly build Vulnerability stacks and increase Acheron's Ultimate DMG!

Other Recommended Characters

Support

You can replace Pela with Asta or Guinaifen as an extra debuffer since the Day 2 enemies are also weak to Fire. If you don't have Aventurine, you can go with Gallagher or Fire Trailblazer since they can sustain the team and inflict debuffs too.

Cycle of Suffering F2P Team

Stellar Shimmer Day 2 F2P Team
Acheron Silver Wolf Asta Trailblazer (Fire)

Asta is a F2P alternative for Pela and will help speed the entire team while providing ATK boosts and inflicting Burn on enemies.

If you don't need a healer, equipping the Fire Trailblazer with Trend of the Universal Market will help them consistently Burn enemies in addition to their Taunt.

How to Beat Day 2 Supergiant Star

Stack Vulnerability on One Target

Cycle of Suffering Day 2 Guide | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (22)

All enemies in each wave will have shared HP, so it's best to focus your attacks and debuffs on a single target to build Dead End stacks. This will make them take increased Ultimate DMG and allow you to defeat the wave faster!

Focus on Weaker Mobs Instead of Bronya

Cycle of Suffering Day 2 Guide | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (23)

In Supergiant Star, Bronya will appear as a boss. Her Weakness Protection makes it harder to deal damage to Bronya alone, so you should target the other mobs instead. They'll be easier to beat since it's faster to get Weakness Breaks on them.

Stellar Shimmer Day 2 Stage Effect
Enemies in every wave share their HP. Whenever enemy targets become afflicted with a debuff that is not applied by themselves, or whenever they take action, they will be afflicted with 1 stack of Dead End, stacking up to 30 times and lasting for 2 turns. Every stack of Dead End increases the Ultimate DMG taken by the target by 10%.
