Honkai: Star Rail Jade Character Guide

Introduction

Jade is a damage dealer who can designate a single ally as a Debt Collector. By attacking enemy targets, either through herself or the Debt Collected, she gains Charges, which trigger follow-up attacks. When Jade activates her Talent's follow-up attack, she immediately gain stackable effects that increase her Crit DMG and ATK.


Skills Overview

Basic Attack - Lash of Riches

Deals Quantum DMG equal to 45%—99% of Jade's ATK to a single target enemy, and Quantum DMG equal to 15%—33% of Jade's ATK to adjacent enemies.


Skill - Acquisition Surety

Makes a single target ally become the Debt Collector and increases their SPD by 30, lasting for 3 turn(s).

After the Debt Collector attacks, deals 1 instance of Additional Quantum DMG equal to 15%—27% of Jade's ATK to each enemy target hit, and consumes the Debt Collector's HP by an amount equal to 2% of their Max HP. If the current HP is insufficient, reduces HP to 1.
If Jade becomes the Debt Collector, she cannot gain the SPD boost effect, and her attacks do not consume HP.
When the Debt Collector exists on the field, Jade cannot use her Skill. At the start of Jade's every turn, the Debt Collector's duration reduces by 1 turn.


Ultimate - Vow of the Deep

Deals Quantum DMG equal to 120%—264% of Jade's ATK to all enemies. At the same time, Jade enhances her Talent's follow-up attack, increasing its DMG multiplier by 40%—88%. This enhancement can trigger 2 time(s).


Talent - Fang of Flare Flaying

After Jade or the Debt Collector unit attacks, gains 1 point of Charge for each enemy target hit. Upon reaching 8 points of Charge, consumes the 8 points to launch 1 instance of follow-up attack, dealing Quantum DMG equal to 60%—132% of Jade's ATK to all enemies. This follow-up attack does not generate Charge.

When launching her Talent's follow-up attack, Jade immediately gains 5 stack(s) of Pawned Asset, with each stack increasing CRIT DMG by 1.2%—2.64%, stacking up to 50 times.


Technique - Visionary Predation

After using the Technique, inflicts enemies within a set area with Blind Fealty for 10 second(s). Enemies inflicted with Blind Fealty will not initiate attacks on allies. When entering battle via actively attacking enemies inflicted with Blind Fealty, all enemies with Blind Fealty will enter combat simultaneously. After entering battle, deals Quantum DMG equal to 50% of Jade's ATK to all enemies, and immediately gains 15 stack(s) of Pawned Asset.


Ascension 2 - Reverse Repo

When enemy targets enter combat, Jade gains 1 stack(s) of Pawned Asset. When a Debt Collector ally's turn starts, Jade additionally gains 3 stack(s) of Pawned Asset.


Ascension 4 - Collateral Ticket

When the battle starts, Jade's action is advanced forward by 50%.


Ascension 6 - Asset Forfeiture

Each stack of the Talent's Pawned Asset additionally increases Jade's ATK by 0.5%.


TLDR

Jade can be said to be a Sub-DPS while also buffing the Main DPS of the team. Her core kit is the Talent and Ultimate. But let's talk about all of them in much more easier notion to understand.

Her Basic ATK: Deal Blast DMG and what she usually uses after using Skill on a teammate.
Her Skill: Make an ally a Debt Collector, increase their SPD, and deal additional Quantum DMG. It's not recommended to use Skill on herself since it doesn't have any benefit. That's why she requires another DPS on the team.
Her Talent: Her main damage output. When Jade and the Debt Collector attack an enemy, Jade will gain 1 point of Charge (If they attack 5 enemies, Jade will gain 5 points of Charge). Once Jade has 8 Charges, she will consume those stacks and deal a Follow-Up Attack. In addition, Jade will also gain stacks of Pawned Asset, with each stack increasing her Crit DMG. In other words, USE HER FUA TO GAIN FREE CRIT DMG.
Her Ultimate: Deals AoE DMG to all enemies and also increase her Talent's FuA DMG multiplier by a huge percentage. The latter is what we want since as mentioned before, her Talent is her main damage output.
