miHoYo will also feature a new four-star character, Thoma in Hu Tao’s banner. Interestingly, Thoma is considered a great support unit and his charming appearance will promote several users to invest in him. Moreover, Hu Tao and Thoma can become an undefeatable duo because of Thoma’s shield.

In order to unleash Hu Tao’s full potential, players have to use her below her half HP. Thus, Thoma’s shield can be of enormous help to users who don’t have Zhongli in their team. After using Hu Tao’s charged attack during her elemental skill state, players can deal constant Pyro damage to the enemies.
