Hu Tao Overview

This Page provides the Best Hu Tao Build information.

Hu Tao is the 77th Director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, a person vital to managing Liyue’s funerary affairs.

Hu Tao is generally regarded as the most powerful Pyro Main DPS in Genshin Impact at the moment. Hu Tao Main DPS Build is mostly used by travelers. Her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst can dish out huge DPS.

Hu Tao has different ways to deal large amounts of damage. Not only dish out the direct damage by using the Elemental Skill, but also applies DoT on opponents. HP% is the most important stats for Hu Tao, so the Main DPS Build will also help travelers to stack the HP% for Hu Tao.
