Genshin Impact brought back a five-star base star, Hu Tao, a pyro polearm user. She may not be the most relevant character in the story, as Liyue’s funeral director, but she is one of the best in the game with her time-affected implementation, and a top-notch character weapon.
She joins fellow pyro polearm user Thoma in this sign, but most people would probably go for it, not him, although it’s new. As such, I thought a refresher on Hu Tao’s best designs, artifacts, and weapons might be a good idea, considering that the last time we saw them was several spots ago. Well let’s go:
The best is Tao Polearms
Homa crew (5 stars): Health increased by 20%. In addition, it offers an attack bonus based on 0.8% of a worker’s maximum HP. When a welder’s HP is less than 50%, this attack bonus is increased by an additional 1% of maximum health.
jade winged shaft (5 stars): When hit, increases attack by 3.2% for 6 seconds. 7 piles max. This effect can only happen once every 0.3 seconds. While holding as many stacks as possible, the damage dealt increases by 12%.
sweeping lightning (5 stars) – Attack increases energy recharge by 28% from base 100%. You can get a max 80% attack bonus. Get 30% energy recharge for 12 seconds after using an elemental burst.
the hunt (4 stars) – Increases elemental blast damage by 16% and elemental blast fatality rate by 6%.
The Staff of Homa is obviously still her best bet, a weapon built specifically for her, but I’m adding Baal’s personal weapon as well as an option if you can disable that, and Baal isn’t in the ballpark for you. I also think The Catch would work well with it as well.
The best artifact is Tao
Crimson witch of flame (Hidden Zhou Palace) 2 pieces: Pyro DMG + 15% bonus. 4 Pieces: Increases overloading and burning damage by 40%. Evaporation and thawing increase destruction by 15%. Using the item skill increases the effects of a 2-piece set by 50% for 10 seconds. 3 piles max.
Severed Fate logo (Momiji-Dyed Court) – 2 pieces – energy recharge + 20%, 4 pieces – increases the damage of blasting items by 25% energy recharge. A maximum of 75% damage bonus can be obtained this way.
Hybrid split: Noblesse Oblige 2 pieces – DMG elemental explosion + 20%, Crimson witch of flame 2 pieces – Pyro DMG bonus + 15%
Similar to Thoma, I’ll add the Severed Fate logo and a hybrid split between Noblesse and Crimson. Although I think the full Crimson set still works better for it overall, and I’ve had nothing but smooth sailing with it using that. Just make sure you get the Pyro damage piece.
So, you are on your way to Hu Tao’s dominance. I would definitely pick her up, she’s my strongest character (well, she’s also in C2), and she’s never left my side since I got her.
