Although Hu Tao has not officially appeared in Genshin Impact, we have obtained enough information through leaks and language. Once she appears in the game, she will definitely become a powerful threat, so you can prepare for her.
With her spear, she may become one of the best DPS units in the game, provided that you equip her with appropriate weapons and artifacts.
About Hu Tao
Hu Tao is the 77th Director of Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, this is where Zhongli works as a consultant. She has a cheeky nature, likes to cause trouble, and despises all opinions of her. She may be a master on the battlefield, where she will use a deadly pyro and polearms to defeat the enemies.
Hu Tao's elemental skill - Guide to Afterlife, determines her DPS ability from the beginning. During the duration of the skill, she will get a lot of bonuses:
- Coverts attacks to Pyro damage
- Hu Tao’s ATK is increased based on her Max HP
- Charged Attacks inflict Blood Blossoms that deal damage
- Increases Hu Tao’s resistance to interruption
Hu Tao’s Elemental Burst - Spirit Soother, which allows her to order a spirit to attack enemies in a large area.
Hu Tao's pyro conversion and the ability to increase her own attack makes her daunting, so the following weapons are very suitable for her:
Staff of Homa: This is a 5-star polearm customized for Hu Tao. Its passive increases her HP by 20%. In addition, it provides an ATK bonus of 0.8% of her maximum HP.
Primordial Jade Winged Spear: Hu Tao may use this 5-star polearm to achieve great results. At the lowest level, it can increase ATK by 3.2% and let them last for 6 seconds, up to 7 stacks, and the wielder’s DMG will be increased by 12% when she gets maximum stacks.
Deathmatch: This polearm is obtained from the Battle Pass, and it solidifies its status as one of the best polearms in terms of value and ease of use. Deathmatch is very easy to use, it is suitable for almost any DPS polearm build. When there are two enemies nearby, its passive attack and DEF increase by 16%. If there are fewer than 2 enemies, the ATK is increased by 24%.
Gladiator’s Finale: Most of Hu Tao’s DPS comes from her basic attacks, because her Elemental Skill provides a lot of bonuses. When she is equipped with 2 pieces, ATK will get a good improvement, when she is equipped with 4 pieces, her basic attack damage is even further. If you want to increase her Pyro damage in exchange for her basic attack damage, you can use 2 pieces of Gladiator and 2 pieces of Crimson Witch of Flames.
Lavawalker: If you want a more elemental-oriented build, this artifact is very suitable. It can increase the damage by 35%.
Berserker/Blood-Soaked: This set provides you with a large amount of critical strike rate, and after activating Hu Tao's Elemental Skill, you immediately have four passive effects on Berserker, which provides you with a large amount of Crit Rate.
Although Hu Tao has not yet appeared in the game, it should be a matter of time, so you can make some preparations in advance for the arrival of Hu Tao. The date when Hu Tao will appear in the game has not yet been determined. Once Mihoyo officially releases the relevant news, MMOWTS will notify you.
Once Hu Tao becomes the next playable character, MMOWTS will also list his Genshin Impact Accounts as soon as possible. At that time, if you don’t have enough luck to get him in the game, you can come to MMOWTS to buy Genshin Impact Accounts with him.
