When I lie on the fluffy clouds, it seems all my worries about the world melt away. Would you stay with me for a while, Savior...? You would lose track of time. It would be great... Feeling so drowsy, I would roll to the side and see your face close to mine... Hehe...

The newest and only caster for Beast, Honglan packs an impressive kit that mixes debuffs and AoE damage. She is exactly what the Beasts needed as they definitely were the weakest faction, especially after Undead got Velenna.
The majority of Honglan kit is tied up to reducing enemy mana, either via global speed reduction, direct mana reduction, or freeze (units cannot generate mana while disabled). For this reason, Honglan can be built as a budget debuffer without additional dupes to reap her benefits, allowing your team to always use M1 first before the enemy. This places her currently as one of, if not the strongest, debuffers in the game, and she can be very useful in any content with multiple enemies. Alternatively, she can also be built as a hypercarry AoE DPS spamming her ult, which does tremendous damage and CC even after the nerf.
Similar to Talia’s ult that damages all units, stunning them while healing the team and increasing mana, Honglan’s ult is more offense-oriented with a focus on DoT via Freeze damage and mana reduction instead. For these reasons, she can be a very flexible unit that can fit into multiple team comps, though she is slightly held back in flexibility due to her being a Beast, which doesn’t have many good units at the moment.
The glaring weakness is her longer skill generation compared to other units, being one of the slowest similar to Jiho and Jacqueline. As such, it would be advisable to pair her with Vivianne and Talia to increase her mana regeneration and speed, while she debuffs the enemy team. Because of this, your frontlines need to be tankier than other comps since you would not be generating as many heals with Honglan instead of a secondary healer. Should your team hold until a hyper-carry Honglan casts her ult and M1, the stage is likely secured.
We could not test her performance there as currently there's no boss mode available.
Honglan is an extremely strong pick with her S3 being a global speed reduction, allowing your team to always skill first, and skill more often in the long run. Her CCs are another icing on the cake to further reduce enemy DPS.
has it all - damage, cc, and debuffs,
speed manipulation messes up with enemy teams and the combos set by the devs,
mana reduction on both Main and Ult,
flexible unit - can fit into many teams.
Beast faction. While you can throw her into any team and she will do well, it's hard to find a second good Beast to pair her with Honglan (if you want to run 3+2 faction bonus),
slow, like really slow - takes her a long time to generate mana to use her skills (pair her with Viv and Talia to fix the issue),
needs her Artifact upgraded to at least L+ to reach her true form (but she works well without it).
