Honkai Star Rail – Should You Pull For The Hunt Fire-DPS Topaz?
Honkai Star Rail‘s second phase of version 1.4 will be running from the 27th of October 2023 to the 14th of November 2023. From there we’ll say goodbye to the Jingliu’s Gentle Eclipse of the Moon banner and welcome the Sunset Clause Banner.
The Sunset Clause Banner will feature the 5-star Hunt character – Topaz. Together with her loyal Warp Trotter Numby, they’re a solid DPS Fire team to be reckoned with. Honkai Star Rail has a notably small amount of strong Fire-wielding characters making Topaz a nice pull if that’s something you’re looking for.
In this guide, we’ll go through all of Topaz’s abilities, their best relics and light cones. As well as what characters they might work well with to see if they’re the right fit for your team.
Topaz is a single-target Fire DPS that uses Numby to dish out a huge amount of follow-up attack DMG. Do note that Numby acts as a separate unit in the turn order during a battle. Use Topaz’s skill to apply the Proof of Debt debuff on enemies to increase the follow-up attack DMG that Numby can do. Because she’s from The Hunt Path and is sort of a Summoner character she’ll do best with people that can buff her and Numby’s abilities.
Topaz is the Senior Manager of the Strategic Investment Department in the Interastral Peace Corporation and leader of the Special Debts Picket Team. Her partner is the Warp Trotter “Numby,” who is capable of acutely perceiving where “riches” are located. It can even perform jobs involving security, debt collection, and actuarial sciences.
|Basic ATK||Deficit…||Deal Fire DMG to a single enemy.|
|Skill||Explicit Subsidy||Summons Numby at the start of the battle. Numby has a certain initial speed and will launch follow-up attacks when it takes action. It also will deal Fire DMG to single targets in the Proof of Debt state.|
When enemies afflicted with Proof of Debt receive an ally’s follow-up attacks, Numby’s action is Advanced Forward. The action Advance Forward effect cannot be triggered during Numby’s turn.
When Topaz is downed, Numby will disappear.
|Talent||Difficulty Paying?||Inflicts a single target enemy with a Proof of Debt status, increasing the DMG it takes from follow-up attacks. Proof of Debt only takes effect on the most recent target it is applied to. If there are no enemies inflicted with Proof of Debt on the field when an ally’s turn starts or when an ally takes action, Topaz will inflict a random enemy with Proof of Debt. Uses Numby to deal Fire DMG to the target. When dealing DMG using this Skill, the attack will be considered as a follow-up attack.|
|Ultimate||Turn a Profit!||Numby enters the Windfall Bonanza! state and its DMG multiplier and CRIT DMG increases. Also, when enemies with Proof of Debt are hit by an ally’s Basic ATK, Skill, or Ultimate, Numby’s action is Advanced Forward. |
Numby exits the Windfall Bonanza! state after having used a certain number of attacks.
|Technique||Trotter Market!?||Summons Numby when Topaz enters the overworld. Numby will automatically search for Basic Treasures and Trotters within a set radius. Using the Technique causes Topaz to regenerate Energy after Numby’s first attack in the next battle.|
After using her Technique and winning a battle in the overworld, if Topaz is still in the team, a small amount of additional credits will be awarded when obtaining credits. There is a maximum limit to the number of additional credits that can be earned per day.
After using the Technique and defeating an enemy in battle within the Simulated Universe, a small amount of additional Cosmic Fragments will be rewarded, and there is a small chance of obtaining a random Curio.

Best Topaz Teams
|Main DPS||Sub DPS||Support||Support|
When Topaz is the main damage dealer on the team she can be buffed by supports such Tingyun or Asta which will improve her speed and attack. March 7th is a good mix for support for Topaz because her follow-up attacks will advance Forward Numby’s turn order.
There’s also a team composition possibility where Topaz can play a Sub-DPS role. Using her skills, she’ll be able to increase the enemy’s damage from follow-up attacks. And Clara will do the same with her Follow-Up attacks as well. Causing a never-ending cycle of hits!
