Hu Tao is an awesome DPS character and she is now officially available in Genshin Impact. Her DPS is incredible even at base constellations. If you want to make her even more potent then you can go for Hu Tao’s best build. In this guide, we are going to tell you just that, i.e., the best build for Hu Tao in Genshin Impact.

We will be telling you how you can get the best out of her by going for her best build. She can be a great addition to most teams and fight in sync with off-the-field supports such as Xingqiu.

You can stay under 50% HP to utilize her the best. That is so because she’ll be able to take advantage of the passive talent Sanguine Rouge that ways. At 50% or less than that HP, he the bonus of her Pyro DMG increases by 33% and it provides a significant boost to her DPS output.

When at low HP the Spirit Soother scales well as well. So, to prevent her from dying and maintain her at low HP you might like to consider running shields. Also, Hu Tao, with her Flutter By passive talent can provide CRIT Rate to her party and this is what makes her a great team member.

Hu Tao Best Build in Genshin Impact

Check out the best stats, weapons, and artefacts for Hu Tao:

  • Artefacts: Crimson Witch of Flames, Lavawalker
  • Weapons: Deathmatch, Staff of Homa, Dragon’s Bane
  • Stats: Crit DMG, HP%, Crit Rate, Pyro DMG


The four piece Crimson Witch of Flames is perhaps the best set you would like to get. The two piece bonus has a +15% Pyro DMG bonus and the four piece offers increased overload and burning DMG by a full 40%. The Vaporize and Melt DMG also has increase by about 15%.

Another possible option for Artefacts is that of Lavawalkers. Particularly if you are not considering spamming reactions with Hu Tao. Lavawalkers four-piece gets you an increase in DMG against opponents affected by Pyro by 35%, which is certainly beneficial for Hu Tao. Another viable option is the four-piece Retracing Bolide.


The best weapon for Hu Tao is the Staff of Homa. This weapon is brand new and it seems that it is designed specifically for her. The secondary CRIT DMG is huge and the bons is even better. The bonus is literally a killer. The Reckless Cinnabar helps increase the HP by 20% and also it provides an ATK bonus of 0.8% of the Max HP of the wielder. Moreover, when the wielder’s HP is less than 50% then the ATK bonus gets increased by one more % of Max HP.

If you do not have the Staff of Homa then don’t worry, you can go for the four-star Polearm called Deathmatch. Dragon’s Bane is yet another cool option for them who would like to spam Vaporize at rank 5 is Dragon’s Bane.

In Free to Play options we have weapons such as Black Tassel and the White Tassel. Where the latter is better for the CRIT Rate and normal attack of DMG and Bonus of Passive.


In stats, first of all you will need some HP% on your Sands of Eon because of scaling of Hu Tao. You will need to boost your elemental damage with a Pyro DMG Bonus stat for the Goblet. For whatever is remaining in Artefacts you can focus on CRIT DMG or CRIT Rate. If you are a bit unsure about the numbers then you can go for 2:1 ballpark range for either CRIT DMG is to CRIT Rate.


Hu Tao is a powerful character and a character you would definitely want to have in your team. And if you get a chance to have it in your team then please don’t loose the opportunity to have her. And if you are yourself planning to play the character then please don’t hesitate to play her.
