Honkai Star Rail Stuck at Level 20-23, How to Level Up Trailblazer

Just like Genshin Impact, Honkai Star Rail features a variety of different things you level up. As you battle your way through the story, you will level up your characters and your main character – the Trailblazer. However, levelling the Trailblazer is a particularly hard thing to do. And, in fact, many players get stuck at Trailblazer level 20 or level 22. And it almost seems impossible to progress from there, as your character is too weak to continue the main story. Furthermore, looking around, it seems like you’ve cleaned everything up. So, what to do if you are stuck at level 20? What you need to do is to increase your Equilibrium Level at Level 1 and never miss a Daily Mission.

When you reach Level 20, you will be offered to increase your Equilibrium Level for the first time. Essentially, the Equilibrium Level is like the World level in Genshin Impact. By increasing it, the enemies will become much harder to beat, with stronger stats, but you’ll receive better rewards and more XP. In order to reach Equilibrium Level 1, you will need to complete the Trails of Equilibrium. These are a series of powerful dungeons with particularly challenging enemies. They will not be easy, but they are essential things to do once you reach the soft cap at level 20. Once you complete the Trails of Equilibrium, you will receive more experience and stronger side missions, which should be enough to reach levels 25 and above in Honkai Star Rail. Below, you’ll see all six Equilibrium levels in Honkai: Star Rail:

  • Equilibrium level 1: Trailblazer level 20
  • Equilibrium level 2: Trailblazer level 30
  • Equilibrium level 3: Trailblazer level 40
  • Equilibrium level 4: Trailblazer level 50
  • Equilibrium level 5: Trailblazer level 60
  • Equilibrium level 6: Trailblazer level 65
