Best Kafka Team Compositions In Honkai Star Rail

Kafka has finally arrived in Honkai Star Rail 1.2 and has opened up tons of new and interesting ways to play. Kafka is a five-star Nihility Path Lightning Element character that utilizes Damage Over Time (DoT) to defeat enemies. Kafka is a DoT enabler, capable of increasing the damage dealt by other DoT characters on your team while also triggering all active DoTs inflicted on enemies for massive damage. 

Because Kafka is so unique and is much more than a simple beat stick, it is important to build a team that can make Kafka reach her full potential. That's where we come in. 

This article will cover the best Kafka team compositions in Honkai Star Rail, including core units, key strategies, and more.

Honkai Star Rail: Best Kafka Team Compositions

Naturally, when building a team around Kafka, players will want to include characters that work well with the damage over time play style. This includes characters that can inflict damage over time, characters that can keep Kafka safe, and characters that can increase the party's attack or reduce the enemy's defense. 

Kafka's damage and overall viability drop off substantially if not run in a DoT team. While she is certainly niche, she can excel when given the proper support. Here are some units you should consider including in a team featuring Kafka. 


Luka is a four-star Physical character who can inflict Bleed on enemies with his attacks. Luka is a great primary damage dealer and DoT inflicter that can work well with Kafka. Luka is recommended when dealing with single-target damage. 


Sampo is another option for DoT damage dealers. Sampo is a Wind character who can deal massive AOE DoT damage with his skills.

Silver Wolf

At the time of writing this, there are not that many DoT users in the game. Therefore, if you intend to bring a DoT team to a boss with a different Weakness, Silver Wolf and inflict a bug ensuring your DoT damage dealers can do their job. 


Serval is a great free-to-play DoT damage dealer and works well with Kafka by inflicting multiple Shock DoT.

Players will want to construct a team using some of these characters along with the typical necessary inclusions to round out their squad. Here is an example team players can try out. 

  • Silver Wolf
  • Sampo
  • Kafka
