Honkai Star Rail Version 2.0 Phase 2 is almost upon us. With the release scheduled for February 29, in addition to the routine updates, the game will bring a new banner featuring the five-star character Sparkle.

Fans are already considering Sparkle as the new Bronya. Her ability, Dreamdiver, advances forward an ally action, similar to Bronya’s Ultimate.

What’s more, Sparkle’s Ultimate, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, recovers 4 skill points for the team. At first glance, it might seem like a surplus, but the new character’s passive increases the max number of Skill Points by 2.

Convinced yet? If you’re interested in pulling the new five-star character in Honkai: Star Rail, check out our Sparkle Pre-Farming Guide to know which materials you need to have on hand to ensure she reaches Max Level and Max Trace immediately.

Your initial priority should be to max Sparkle levels to unlock other features in her evolutions. You don’t need many materials, especially if you’ve been playing Honkai: Star Rail for a while. Check out the materials to Max Sparkle Ascension:

  • 1200x Adventure Log or 300x Traveler’s Guide
  • 308,000 Credits
  • 15x Tatters of Thought
  • 15x Fragments of Impression
  • 65x Dream Flamer
  • 15x Shards of Desires

Dream Flamer is a material that should be used for Quantum characters from now on. You acquire it in the Dream’s Edge Stagnant Shadow fight. Before that, you should proceed on your journey in Penacony until the Firefly’s hideout.

Fortunately, you also acquire Tatters of Thought in Penacony, facing Memory Zone Meme enemies in the region. These include Allseer, Heartbreaker, and Sombrous Sepulcher.

Shards of Desire can be found after defeating elite enemies in the Simulated Universe; synthesizing three fragments of impression into one and also in the same Memory Zone as Tatters of Thought.

Sparkle Materials for Max Trace In Honkai Star Rail

This is where the farming will get intense. Trace materials are harder to come by and require a larger quantity. Fortunately, some materials are the same as those used in Sparkle’s Ascension, so they are easy to find. Check out the materials to Max Sparkle Trace:

  • 8x Tracks of Destiny
  • 3,000,000 Credits
  • 18x Firmament Note
  • 41x Tatters of Thought
  • 69x Celestial Section
  • 56x Fragments of Impression
  • 139x Heavenly Melody
  • 12x Past Evils of the Borehole Planet Disaster
  • 58x Shards of Desire

We can reuse Tatters of Thought and Fragments of Impression, but there are new items to collect. Firmament Note was added in 2.0 and is used to level up Traces for Harmony Characters.

It can be found in Calyx: The Reverie (Dreamscape) or exchanged at the Omni-Synthesizer. Luckily, Celestial Section and Heavenly Melody are found in the same place, so you can optimize your farming process and ensure all rewards in the same run.

The Past Evils of the Borehole Planet Disaster is a more advanced material. It drops from the Echo of War at the Seclusion Zone, in Herta’s Space Station. It takes a while to get there if you’re a newcomer to Honkai: Star Rail.

The other materials you probably already have, as they are common throughout the game and in the evolution of other characters.


These are all the materials for those who want to ensure a Sparkle Pre-Farming Guide in Honkai: Star Rail. So, are you excited about the new five-star character? If you decide to pull her, let us know in the comments!
