6 Hu Tao Talents In Genshin Impact

She is the current director of Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. This guide will demonstrate Hu Tao Skills. 

Her weapon of choice is a polearm, and her abilities are based on precise control of her blood. Hitting enemies with her attacks will increase her Pyro energy and leave an Elemental skill effect. 

Hu Tao is a strong 4 star character that has high health, attack and defense attributes. 

Her healing abilities are very helpful and her Talents can be powerful if used in the right order. She should be a top pick for your team in Genshin Impact.

She primarily deals contact damage due to her normal attack, Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst all requiring her to be up close and personal with enemies. 

She is also capable of increasing her Physical Damage using passive talents and skill effects. Hu Tao's largest drawback is that she has trouble recovering her own HP when not using her Elemental Skill or Burst.

Her preference for using her own legs as weapons and limbs gives her more flexibility and elasticity, thus becoming more deadly. Easily distinguishable by her distinct, dark aura.

Secret Spear of Wangsheng

Secret Spear of Wangsheng info card

The Secret Spear of Wangsheng is the most versatile weapon in Hu Tao's arsenal. Employing it as a standard spear in combat is not a top priority in-game, as some might think. 

As we mentioned above, while using her Elemental Skill, her normal attacks are infused with Pyro DMG. Additionally, her charged attacks will apply Blood Blossom which deals Pyro DMG every 4 seconds until the effect wears off.

You should place this in a more friendly and understandable tone: A spear used by Hu Tao to penetrate the hearts of her opponents. The spearhead is infused with qi, making it capable of damaging even immaterial spirits.

The scrolls record Wangsheng's secret techniques and his deepest thoughts. Once you die, you'll be able to put them in practice calmly, without pressure…

Guide to Afterlife

Guide to Afterlife info card

Guide to Afterlife (Spirit Soother/Mind Seer) is Hu Tao's Elemental Skill. When used, She will perform an attack with her polearm, hitting enemies in front of her. 

Enemies hit by Guide to Afterlife gain a Pyro Sigil which explodes after three seconds and applies a Pyro application to nearby enemies. The sigil degrades when attacked, destroying it before the full three seconds and preventing the explosion.

This skill is most useful for its Elemental Particle generation and Stance benefits, making it more suitable to challenging content where enemies have high health.

Creating elements converts part of her health into an absorption shield and generates 2.5 Energy for each enemy hit by elemental conversion.

This document has been passed down in the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor as a guide for the dead's journey to the underworld. "Making Amends," "Breaking Ties." These are things all people seek prior to death. When that time comes, they can only do so in their dreams. Some wander this realm, some never wake up—the cycle of life is one of both joy and grief, woven together like ripples in water. It is my favorite hu tao talent.

Spirit Soother

Spirit Soother info card

Elemental Skill: Spirit Soother. Hu Tao charges forward and unleashes her pyro spirits, dealing Pyro damage to all enemies in her path, and creating a damaging mistfield at the point of impact that deals continuous Pyro damage. 

She then has 15s to use Spirit Soother again to cancel this skill, otherwise it will end 2s after she takes any other action. 

If canceled in time, Hu Tao regenerates a large portion of her HP and the damage done by the mistfield is greatly increased for the remainder of its duration. 

Elemental Burst: Spirit Abyss, Hu Tao performs a continuous series of rapid spear strikes, dealing AoE Pyro damage to all surrounding enemies. 

During this time, her attack combos have no upper limit but will still pause after every 4 hits for each enemy struck. 

She cannot be controlled during this period but can be interrupted by disabling effects.

She wields her polearm in this stance. Her normal attack has a medium attack range and strikes 3 times, dealing AoE Pyro DMG with each strike.

Flutter By grants 1 stack of Fluttering Wings when She attacks an enemy with an Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst. 

Sanguine Rouge

Sanguine Rouge info card

Adding Sanguine Rouge to Hu Tao’s playstyle is an easy way to increase her survivability. In many situations, the healing offered by this passive will be sufficient without enhancing Hu Tau with additional healing items.

Using an Elemental Burst regenerates 2.5% HP for Hu Tao. When Hu Tao's HP is below 50%, this effect is increased to 7.5% HP. This skill can be upgraded by consuming an identical Sanguine Rouge.

The More the Merrier

The More the Merrier info card

It's triggered upon perfectly cooking Vegetarian Abalone. Upon doing so, you will have a chance to produce both her special dish, Ghostly March, and a Suspicious-quality Vegetarian Abalone.

When She perfectly cooks Vegetarian Abalone, she has a chance of producing both her special dish, Ghostly March, and a Suspicious-quality Vegetarian Abalone. A housewife who would be dearly missed by her husband, if it weren't for the fact that he was already dead.

This amazing dish increases the number of enemies who drop Elemental Energy for all members of the party, as well as summoning a Plume of Death, which makes it easier to defeat opponents. Charges up to 1 time if Hu Tao's HP is below 50% at the start of a Cooking Event, or 2 times if above 50%.
