Luka’s skill set in Honkai: Star Rail
Luka is a unique character with six special skills, instead of the typical five like other recruits in Honkai: Star Rail. This is because his basic attack can be transformed into a different attack using his other abilities.
1. “Direct Punch” basic attack
Inflicts Physical Damage to a designated enemy equivalent to 50% of Luka’s Attack.
2. “Sky-Shatter Fist” alternate basic attack
When Luka has two stacks of Fighting Will, gained through some of his other abilities, he can activate an alternate version of his basic attack called “Sky-Shatter Fist”. While “Sky-Shatter Fist” is active, Luka first uses “Direct Punch” to deal three hits of Physical damage, ranging from 10% to 22% of Luka’s attack, to a single selected opponent. Then, Luka uses a Rising Uppercut to deal one hit of Physical damage, ranging from 40% to 88% of Luka’s attack, to the selected target.
3. “Lacerating Fist” skill
Inflict Physical Damage to a designated enemy equal to 60% of Luka’s Attack, then have a base 100% chance to cause the target to enter the Bleeding state, lasting for 3 rounds.
In the Bleeding state, at the start of each round, the enemy will suffer Continuous Physical Damage equal to 24% of their Maximum HP, up to a maximum of 130% of Luka’s Attack.
4. “Coup de Grâce” Ultimate
Obtain 2 stacks of Fighting Spirit and have a basic 100% chance to make a designated enemy increase the damage they take by 12%, lasting for 3 turns. After that, deal Physical Damage to this target equal to 198% of Luka’s Attack.
5. “Flying Sparks” talent
After Luka performs a normal attack with Straight Fist and follows up with the technique Shattered Fist, he will gain 1 stack of Will to Fight, up to a maximum of 4 stacks. When the number of Will to Fight stacks is 2 or more, the normal attack Straight Fist will be enhanced into Sky Shattering Straight Fist. After successfully hitting an enemy with the enhanced normal attack “Sky Shattering Fist” while they are Bleeding, it will immediately generate 1 instance of damage equivalent to 68% of the initial damage that the bleeding target is currently taking. At the start of the battle, Luka has 1 stack of Will to Fight.
6. “Anticipator” technique
Attack the enemy immediately, after entering battle will deal Physical Damage equal to 50% of Luka’s Attack to a random enemy, while having a basic 100% chance to inflict Bleeding status on this enemy, similar to Chiến Kỹ. After that, Luka will gain an additional layer of Fighting Spirit.
