Hu Tao Genshin Impact – Best Builds a Pyro Based Five Star Character

Hu Tao Genshin Impact – Best Builds a Pyro Based Five Star Character

14.02.2021 0 By Butcher79

Looking for the best Genshin Impact Hu Tao build? Hu Tao wields a polearm and is a Pyro based five-star character – the perfect combination for a deadly DPS dealer. According to the game’s lore, Hu Tao is the 77th Director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. She loves to cause trouble and is said to have a very ‘punch-able face’.

Hu Tao was rumored to launch alongside Xiao in the recent Genshin Impact 1.3 update, however she didn’t make it into the first two banners – we’re still hoping she’ll arrive very soon, though. What makes Hu Tao an interesting character is her elemental skill which allows her to enter the Paramita Papillo state. In this state, all of her attacks become Pyro attacks and they receive a damage boost based on her max health.

Judging by Hu Tao’s abilities, she’s a high risk high reward DPS character. Pyro characters typically do well on our Genshin Impact tier list, but only time will tell where Hu Tao ends up. We can only theorycraft the best Hu Tao build right now, but we are confident this build should work well when she is finally available to play.

Guide to Afterlife
Only an unwavering flame can cleanse the impurities of this world.
Hu Tao consumes a set portion of her HP to knock the surrounding enemies back and enter the Paramita Papilio state.
Paramita Papilio
• Increases Hu Tao’s ATK based on her Max HP at the time of entering this state. ATK Bonus gained this way cannot exceed 400% of Hu Tao’s Base ATK.
• Converts attack DMG to Pyro DMG, which cannot be overridden by any other elemental infusion.
• Charged Attacks apply the Blood Blossom effect to the enemies hit.
• Increases Hu Tao’s resistance to interruption.
Blood Blossom
Enemies affected by Blood Blossom will take Pyro DMG every 4s. This DMG is considered Elemental Skill DMG.
Each enemy can be affected by only one Blood Blossom effect at a time, and its duration may only be refreshed by Hu Tao herself.
Paramita Papilio ends when its duration is over, or Hu Tao has left the battlefield or fallen.

Hu Tao’s Secret Spear technique is based on several rules, the first of which is: “The spear opens the path to the afterlife, and the butterflies bridge this world and the next.”

Spirit Soother
Commands a blazing spirit to attack, dealing Pyro DMG in a large AoE.
Upon striking the enemy, regenerates a percentage of Hu Tao’s Max HP. This effect can be triggered up to 5 times, based on the number of enemies hit.
If Hu Tao’s HP is below or equal to 50% when the enemy is hit, both the DMG and HP Regeneration are increased.

Supernatural activity by those who have already left this world is a source of great anxiety for the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. In such cases, cremation always lets Hu Tao find peace of mind. The more anxious she feels, the stronger the flame.

As mentioned earlier, Guide to Afterlife is the key to dealing damage with Hu Tao as each of her attacks are transformed into Pyro attacks. To get the most out of this elemental skill, look for Genshin Impact artifacts that feature healthPyro damage, and crit rate.

The four-piece Crimson Witch of Flames set is perfect for Hu Tao, increasing her Overloaded and Burning damage by 40%, as well as all Vaporize and Melt damage by 15%. There’s also the added perk you receive when using Hu Tao’s elemental burst, increasing the two-piece set bonus from 15% to 50% of its starting value for ten seconds.

Similarly to the recently released Xiao, Hu Tao is a tricky character to play due to her passive talents, specifically Sanguine Rouge. Sanguine Rouge encourages the player to keep Hu Tao at 50% health or below to receive a 33% damage bonus, but this can be incredibly risky against powerful enemies. This puts healers in a difficult position as they have to learn to treat Hu Tao differently compared to the rest of the game’s characters.

It’s difficult to determine the best team composition involving Hu Tao, but we would think it looks similar to Diluc’s ideal party. The idea is to create elemental reactions, so pairing any Cryo characters with Hu Tao should work well. Want to go for a glass cannon approach? Try using Ganyu alongside Hu Tao to activate Melt as often as possible. If healing Hu Tao proves to be too difficult, it might be best to use Zhongli as a support character instead. Zhongli’s Jade Shields are great for blocking incoming attacks, allowing you to keep Hu Tao protected while maintaining her low health.

The Genshin Impact beta revealed the Staff of Homa, a new five-star Polearm with a high attack bonus and critical rate. This weapon features a similar effect to Sanguine Rouge; it boosts Hu Tao’s attack bonus by an additional 1% of her max health. If the Staff of Homa remains the same as it was in the beta, this will be the go-to weapon for Hu Tao. If you don’t have any five-star Genshin Impact weapons, Deathmatch works well as its effect grants an attack and defence bonus depending on the number of enemies on the battlefield.
