Honkai Star Rail features the Shadows of Preservation, which are crucial for unlocking the sixth Eidolon for the Fire Trailblazer. Similar to Genshin Impact’s Constellations, these Eidolons provide various buffs and enhancements to the character’s abilities. While acquiring more Eidolons usually requires obtaining multiple copies of 4-star and 5-star characters, the Trailblazer follows a different approach. In this article, we will explore the locations of all six Shadows of Preservation, as well as the effects they have on the Fire Trailblazer’s capabilities.
Trailblazer Eidolons in Honkai Star Rail

The initial Shadow of Preservation can be obtained by completing the Trailblaze Mission “Hummin Antlers, Entwined Horns” in Honkai Star Rail. This particular mission is part of the Xianzhou Luofu story arc and becomes available at Trailblaze Level 34.

The second to fifth Shadows of Preservation can be acquired from the Jeweler’s Pagoda, located in Xianzhou Luofu.
