Updates:

1. Muster has completely changed, FS is no longer given for free at SS rank so it is best to completely ignore her since she takes a ton of fragments to rank up. If you're worried about Rimestar boss in the future, then that would be a reason to get her to SS rank, but there are higher priorities early on.

2. CH will become farmable in the future, therefore you don't have to worry about pulling her from gacha or rerolling her at all.

3. Beginners get a supply for HoT and AE, it is best to pull on this banner right away, go for HoT's gear right after. If you get HoT you can completely ignore Hawk of the Fog for a while as well.

Re-clarifications:
1. "Low" means low priority, it's not a power ranking, DA and SN are not weak, in fact they're very strong and are good valks to pull for, but I recommend to pull the valkyries above them first. I've basically put the top 6 best valks to gacha for, any valks not mentioned (BKE, VK, HoV, AK, SK, etc), I don't recommend pulling with crystals on expansion at the moment (doesn't mean they don't have their uses either), I would pull DA or SN before them. It is true BKE could get a PRI in the future and become much stronger.

2. With Whisperer's Net, Kreigsmesser switch skill, etc. if you already leveled them your account isn't bricked, the valkyries are still functional, it's just you might lose a few seconds on a kill or two, not a big deal, just better to warn people about it. Also I forgot to mention to not level LE, CH and KMB's switch skill either. LOL.

Again it's just all just my suggestion, and not everyone has the same opinion, even at the top. It's always best to play for enjoyment, and for some people, optimizing their choices is what they like to do.

The last one was quite outdated, so here's a new version. Note: video is for players who want to play competitively.

Sadly all those warnings about unlocking specific skills have been too late for me 😂

Ps. I'm aware of not unlocking SpTeri's Stun skill but the red notification was too irritating for my eyes that it feels like i missed out on something that's why im always clicking on the valkyrie tab to check. In the end i said fck it, and upgraded it with a sigh of relief and fear of the unknown future.

Updates (Maybe new video soon, this is getting long):

1. Muster has completely changed, Flame Sakitama is no longer given for free at SS rank so it is best to completely ignore her since she takes a ton of fragments to rank up. Feel free to use her early on though on fire weather abyss until you have a better option.

2. Celestial Hymn is farmable, therefore you don't have to worry about pulling her from gacha or rerolling her at all.

3. Herrscher of Sentience is now the best valkyrie to reroll for /get first. If you get HoS first there's more merit to Hawk of the Fog and less merit for Night Squire.

4. Fallen Rosemary is pretty worth farming now. You can consider farming her to SS, would probably do it before SSS Lightning Empress and SSS Knight Moonbeam, but the priority is debatable. You should definitely unlock Celestial Hymn asap.

5. Haxxor Bunny can be worth farming, but definitely not until after Starlit Astrologos is SSS. There's not a huge rush to farm Haxxor Bunny, but definitely do it when you're getting into the big leagues and have stuff to spare. She's really good for ice teams at SS+ rank, and her gear is amazing if you happen to get it.

6. Shadow Knight and Black Nucleus have been added to farmable valkyries, they are not any more worth than the other valkyries, Shadow Knight has some good niche cases, you can consider her later down the road after you're comfortable with where Lightning Empress and Knight Moonbeam's rank.

8:58 i came back playing last month (after more than a year out) when HoT was still available and got her with 4 pulls :>
I was able to pull 2 of her stigmatas and I'm using magstorm for her rn

The next herscher could be fire, might be himeko with BR awakening. Because we dont have a good Fire Psychic DPS valk yet other than BR at SS rank with Sutr pri but playstyle is kinda outdated and im not a fan of losing health from both ult and the pri weapon skill.

Thanks a lot. This is very helpfiul and exactly what I needed. I just started the game and I was wondering which valkyries were worth the investment

it was love at first sight with Bronya and Yae for me, I was drowning in bliss when I pulled HoR, Meme and CH, Bronyas bike animation is just too cool, never leaving my team ever and currently saving up for her weapon on elite shop

I've been looking for this particular guide finally I found it. One question though do you think as an f2p we can hit the pity mark on the 60 days banner? I started a few days ago and I got 3k worth of gems and I'm planning to pull on that.

I'm so happy when I one pulled CH from dorm. Very unexpected because I was thinking it's another WC . If you want CH, expect all valks that appear in dorm to be White Comet I guess.

Henlo there!
I've started playing Honkai again after a big pause (since Azure Empyrea first came out), and now that I'm back i'm confused by the mass of random stigmatas I have. The valkyries I wanna build the most are NS and Hawk, both SSS and full cores (in case of hawk).
For NS, I have a Dirac M, which is always equipped. For other parts, I have, for ezample, kafka T, Shrodinger band M and B, Newton T and B, and also randomly a Michelangelo B and Poe B. I have most of the f2p stigmatas avaiable up to the point i stopped.
For Hawk, I have the Darwin set and I was thinking of farming the Monet one. I have Nuada's Revenge.
Also, another thing, I have SSS Swallotail Phantasm, it still has the shrodinger tour set I got when she was out, is it still good?

with the new HoF coming and the PRI Sakura's salvation aka ice shaver, I think Rondo to SS is a solid "high" tier
