Here are the best polearms in Genshin Impact you can use for Hu-Tao

The wide range of choices inside the game can make the title a bit confusing. Players might get a bit flustered regarding various builds with weapons that can produce astounding or lackluster results.

The Gacha system can be a bit harsh, and in the case of special character weapons, you will need to invest real currency. So what should you use to build Hu-Tao? Well, here is a list of all the weapons that can be used to build her into a powerful DPS carry.

Blackcliff Polearm

This polearm can be purchased from the shop every alternate month. It offers great stats and the secondary stat of crit damage is always great to have on weapons. It frees up space in the artifact section, and you can also easily use it to assign other important statistics.

Hu-Tao can buff her own attack with her elemental skill (E), and as a result, this makes black cliff undesirable. If you don’t have any other option, then go ahead and pick this weapon up from the shop. It is an ideal choice for free-to-play players, as this weapon can be picked up easily.

Death Match

This polearm is a premium weapon that cannot be obtained from Gacha. This limited-time weapon serves as a bonus reward from Battle Pass that not everyone can pick up. As far as Battle Pass weapon goes, Death Match is probably one of the prominent choices that you can have.

It offers a great damage boost and also provides a very useful energy recharge. Hu-Tao does not have energy recharge or a method to gain energy particles in her kit. This makes Deathmatch an Ideal choice that Battle Pass owners can look towards.

Dragon’s Bane

Arguably the best in slot 4-star weapon that Hu-Tao can use inside the game. If you have been fortunate enough to pull a few copies of this weapon from the Gacha system, then you should refine it. It is a great choice for the free-to-play players, who are looking to build Hu-Tao into a massive damage dealer.

This polearm will provide enhanced damage against enemies affected by Hydro and Pyro elements. This makes it an ideal weapon for Polearm characters who belong to either Hydro or Pyro elements. At maximum refinement, you can deal up to 36% of enhanced damage on enemies that are affected by either Hydro or Pyro.

Skyward Spine

This weapon offers high base damage and useful energy recharge to Hu-Tao. She will regain her elemental burst (Q) much faster, and the weapon’s ability also compliments her quite well. It will grant you the much-needed Attack Speed, enhanced Crit Rate that scales with each refinement.

Another important factor that makes Skyward Spine a good choice is the secondary weapon ability. It will also trigger an elemental blade that will attack in a small area based on your effective attack damage. This ability also scales based on each refinement, and at maximum level, you will get a 100% damage boost in a massive area based on your attack.
