If Hu Tao’s HP drops below 25% or if she takes enough damage to be defeated: Hu Tao will not be defeated this time. Over the next 10 seconds, his elemental and physical resistances increase by 200%, his critical rate increases by 100%, and his resistance to interruptions increases sharply. This effect is triggered automatically when Hu Tao only has 1 HP left. This effect can be triggered once every 60 seconds.
Ideally 4 pieces of the set Burning flame witch is ideal for Hu Tao. The pyro damage of 15% and the increase in elemental mastery by 80 tick all boxes for the latter.
Another option is to equip yourself with 4 pieces of the set Nostalgic memoriesto see how your attack is increased by 18% but also to improve your damage by 50% against 15 energy points for 10 seconds. This set can work really well too, but in return you will use its ultimate less often, which will be problematic against multiple enemies at once, as well as your survivability, especially if you don’t have a healer. .
At the weapon level:
- The best possible weapon for them is this Baton de Homa, available in the weapon banner. It gives you an attack bonus based on 0.8% of the character’s maximum health. If the HP is below 50%, this bonus is increased by an additional 1% of the maximum HP. This is just perfect for Hu Tao as his primary ability robs him of HP.
- Right behind that Homa employees light up Dragon scourge, a very powerful 4-star polearm for Hu Tao, improving Pyro Damage by 36% to maximum refinement.
Regarding the statistics, the following order of priority should be considered when equipping yourself:
100 Elemental Mastery> Crit Rate / Crit Damage> 100+ Elemental Mastery> HP%> ATK%> HP> ATK
The reason elemental mastery is so important is that, ideally, you will use it with a hydro character sources, and this value increases your damage. Prefer them PV% rather than l’ATQ% dare Hu Tao makes better use of it thanks to its ability that scales with life points.
Hu Tao was a highly anticipated character, largely because of his design. But on the ground what is it really? Well … she doesn’t disappoint. Its damage is simply monstrous, especially thanks to it Rebirth hoodthat sacrifices 30% of its health to repel enemies and improve its damage. Especially since it once Boiling blood unlocked, she receives a bonus of Pyro damage by 33% if it is below 50% HP.
Therefore, since the improvement of her damage goes through her maximum HP, you’ll do whatever is necessary to have her have some on her gear so that she isn’t in too much danger when using this ability. His damage comes first Pyro At the time, and given the strength of that element, it might as well be put in relation to a character Hydro to like Xingqiu Where Mona, it will be very effective.
Its charged attack gives it good utility, which improves its survivability. Add to that an ultimate ability that surrounds them and heals them even more when their HP is below 50%, and you have a character who can fulfill their role, namely DPS, without necessarily having a healer behind it.
Should we appeal to it?
Hu Tao is a great character to use to cause damage. It breaks the meta a bit and is all the more interesting to you if you don’t have a good character. Pyro. It hurts, doesn’t need a healer to shine, and is pretty easy to play. It still requires some good set pieces to really shine and good stamina management since most of your damage comes from your charged attacks, but it can help you through the more difficult content in the first lineup which makes life a lot easier.
