Hu Tao is the spooky 77th director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, presiding over all method of funeral companies in Liyue, and she or he’s coming to Genshin Influence quickly. Hu Tao is a polearm wielder and pyro component, so she’ll probably take over a spot in your crew that is at present being stuffed by Diluc or Xiangling. In fact, that is in the event you’re fortunate sufficient to get her out of the gacha. Hu Tao has an cute little ghost companion that syncs up and synergizes along with her core mechanics, which appear to hinge round self-injury for large injury boosts. Don’t fret, Hu Tao can heal herself by way of regeneration along with her skillset as nicely. Earlier than we dial down into specifics, try Hu Tao’s teaser trailer beneath!
To dig slightly deeper, Hu Tao accommodates a set of talents designed to push out huge burst injury. Hu Tao can commerce HP for large assault bonus that converts to fireside injury, appropriate for triggering elemental results in your enemies and priming them for a mixture assault from one other character. The extra HP you stack on Hu Tao, the larger the assault bonus if you hit your “Paramita Papilo State” expertise. Whereas Hu Tao is on this state, charged assaults activate Blood Blossom, which is a fireplace damage-over-time impact on opponents that get hit. If you have not already figured it out, enemies which have pyro vulnerabilities are going to completely crumble underneath Hu Tao’s powers.
Spirit Soother instructions her ghost spirit to do unbelievable hearth injury in a large area-of-effect, and it additionally heals Hu Tao. In fight, it appears like Hu Tao will tackle some threat by leveraging her HP pool to get a ton of energy, go in for hefty hearth injury, after which unleash hell with Spirit Soother to be able to regain the wagered hit factors and annihilate the whole lot on the display concurrently. This sounds fairly enjoyable, to be sincere.
One of many different newest character releases was Xiao, additionally a polearm weapon person, however within the Anemo (wind) faculty. Hu Tao by some means seems even cooler than Xiao, nevertheless it all is determined by what your core get together composition appears like and if in case you have room for a brand new pyro character. And naturally, it’ll probably depend upon whether or not or not your primogem stash is stuffed sufficient to get your self a Hu Tao at any time when her banner drops.
Whereas we do not have a timeframe for Hu Tao’s launch in the intervening time, it stands to motive that she’ll probably be featured within the subsequent main character banner. It is slightly early to say how good Hu Tao will work in most teams, however I like ghosts and hearth so I will in all probability dump a bunch of primogems making an attempt to select up a duplicate. Her constellations are in all probability going to be the make or break resolution for me… If she’s a personality that may get by on little or no constellation assist (acquired by getting a number of copies of a personality) then I will positively attempt to purchase one. If she’s one of many characters that does not excel till they’ve lots of constellation factors, then I will in all probability train some restraint and wait to see who’s coming subsequent. Hopefully a Dendro character!
