Genshin Impact Hu Tao – Teaser Trailer
miHoYo has released a teaser trailer for Hu Tao recently. This pretty much confirms that the character will be making its way into the game via the 1.4 Update. In the trailer, we get to know more about the 77th Director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, Hu Tao. The character has an aura of mystery around it, and it’s stated that she “walks the line between life and death, shouldering responsibilities unknown to most mortals.”
What is Hu Tao’s age?
Many fans are wondering what Hu Tao’s actual age is. Well, miHoYo hasn’t revealed yet how old Hu Tao is, but a few Redditors have made rough estimates about her age. It is stated that Hu Tao was conducting her grandfather’s funeral rites at the age of 13, who was the 75th Director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, and a few years have passed since then. Considering that she is still regarded as a young lady, she is estimated to be around 18 to 20 years of age.
What are Hu Tao’s skills and attacks?
Normal attack – Secret Spear of Wangsheng
Hu Tao can perform up to six consecutive strikes using her secret Spear of Wangsheng. The damage increases with each hit, which makes her attack quite lethal. She also has a charged attack which can deal quite a significant amount of damage at the cost of 25 stamina and a Plunging attack which deals with AoE damage.
Elemental Skill – Guide to Afterlife – Paramita Papilio & Blood Blossom
When Hu Tao uses her Elemental Skill, Guide to Afterlife, she consumes some of her HP and enters the Paramita Papilio state. In this state, her ATK increases based on her max HP, with the maximum being 400% of her base ATK. It increases her resistance to interruption and converts attack DMG to Pyro DMG. Alongside that, charged attacks also apply the Blood Blossom effect on enemies. Each enemy can be affected by only one Blood Blossom effect at a time and enemies affected by it take Pyro DMG every 4s.
Elemental Burst- Spirit Soother
Spirit Soother is Hu Tao’s Elemental Burst and it summons a blazing spirit which deals massive AoE Pyro DMG on enemies. When the attack hits the enemy, a percentage of Hu Tao’s HP is regenerated and if her HP is below 50% both HP and stamina regeneration is increased.
Genshin Impact is available on the App Store, Google Play, PC, PS4, and PS5.
