Who Are the Four-Star Characters in Sparkle Banner in HSR?

These are the Four-Star characters you can get in Sparkle’s Banner in HSR 2.0:

  • Sampo
  • Qingque
  • Hanya


If you are interested in a wind character or enjoy obliterating enemies with two Damage over Time (DoT) fighters, then Sampo is a fantastic option. While his Eidolons are not essential, having just one of him will suffice. Sampo can effortlessly break shields and provide an Ultimate buff to support any fellow DoT characters (e.g., Wind Shear, Shock, etc). Additionally, he easily refreshes his own debuff by using normal attacks, making him ideal for generating skill points for characters with a high skill point demand.


Qingque shows her worth when facing quantum-weak enemies, but her overall performance as a generalist DPS is overshadowed by other 4-star characters due to skill point constraints. While she can serve as a proficient auto-attacker subDPS, she is notably surpassed by Tingyun in this regard.


Hanya stands out as a universally beneficial character in Honkai: Star Rail, especially when matched with units that can fully utilize her abilities. Serving as a Physical support character, Hanya excels in offering damage buffs and SP generation.
