How To Ascend Characters In Honkai Star Rail

Ascending characters unlocks new skills and abilities. This guide on How To Ascend Characters In Honkai Star Rail explains the ascending process as it’s tied to another unique mechanic where you need to advance through the games Difficulty Levels in order to progress through the story and improve your character further.

As you progress through the story you can increase the level of each of your characters. Once a character reaches level 20 they reach the first threshold. This means that the character will no longer be able to advance, gain new skills, or unlock new abilities until they have reached the next level of ascension. Before you’re able to unlock the ability to ascend, you first need to unlock Difficulty Level 1.

Once you have unlocked Difficulty Level 1 you can then spend the Ascension materials to ascend your favorite characters.
