Although the gameplay and how to build Hu Tao in Genshin Impact are complete, there are “unwritten rules” that gamers may not know.
Hu Tao has always been a powerful DPS character of Genshin Impact that is trusted by all gamers. Her strength in the game’s current meta is indisputable.
If a player is just starting out and looking for a stable Fire-type DPS, Hu Tao is always a reliable choice. The amount of damage is large, the skill set is easy to operate and does not require too much of Genshin Impact gamers’ understanding of the game as well as being friendly to new players by not requiring too much about weapons.
Revolving around information such as combo methods, building directions or the strongest squads, perhaps Genshin Impact gamers should also know more about the “unwritten rules” surrounding this girl.
Just understanding these points will help your Hu Tao operate better, thereby helping you have a smoother gaming experience. So, let’s find out with MGN right away in this article!
Notes that Hu Tao players in Genshin Impact need to know
Install Seven Heavens Statue
As you know, Hu Tao will be strongest when he has 50% lower health thanks to the Blood Apple Fire talent that increases his Fire Elemental damage by 33%. So if you are outside the world of Teyvat, install the Seven Heavens Statue to heal less than 80% of Hu Tao’s health.
Why less than 80% instead of 50%? The reason is that Hu Tao’s Elemental Skill will reduce 30% of his health to increase Hu Tao’s basic Attack by 400%. Keeping 80% when Hu Tao uses Elemental Skills will optimize her health. Helps her have the largest amount of buff damage and the highest amount of health on her body.
Hu Tao’s Fury Skill
Many players use her Rage Skill as an “insurance” to heal in times of need to avoid damage shock. However, the amount of damage from Hu Tao’s Rage Skill is extremely large, so use Rage Skill while the Elemental Skill is still in effect, that will optimize the damage to the Leader in Genshin Impact.
However, no matter what, Hu Tao is still a DPS, so prioritizing dealing the greatest amount of damage is what Hu Tao needs to prioritize above all else. Hu Tao’s squad currently has Xingqiu and Yelan along with a shield character, so the ability to protect Hu Tao is too much and there is no need to use Fury Skill as an “insurance”.
Cancel Hu Tao’s Weight Strike animation
Let’s go on a slightly more advanced note, there are a lot of you who are overlooking canceling this Heavy Strike animation. Hu Tao’s Elemental Skills only last for 9 seconds so we all want to optimize those 9 seconds for Hu Tao to cause the greatest amount of damage.
As we can see in the video above, Hu Tao can Heavy Strike for an extra attack when you cancel the good heavy strike animation. There are two popular ways to cancel animation for Hu Tao: using Charge and Jump, in which Charge is only most effective when you have Hu Tao’s C1. For those of you who only own Hu Tao C0, canceling the animation by jumping up is the most preferred option.
Elemental Mastery should be considered
Many people often ignore this stat. New players often only focus on Critical Damage or Critical Rate and often ignore her Elemental Mastery. Hu Tao is built as a Fire-type DPS and deals damage mainly through Elemental Reaction.
You also know that Elemental reactions will depend on the reacting character’s Elemental Mastery and Hu Tao is no exception in this case. Ignoring Elemental Mastery will cause your Hu Tao to have significantly weaker reactive damage. Therefore, MGN recommends that Hu Tao’s index should range from 150 to 200 Elemental Mastery or more.
