Genshin Impact Thoma Guide – 10 Tips and Tricks

Here is the Genshin Impact Thoma guide with some of the best tips and tricks that will help you understand the character even more.

Thoma will be a familiar face to those who have traveled to Inazuma in Genshin Impact because he is one of the first individuals you will see when you arrive at Ritou Harbor. Thoma is recognized for being someone you can count on at any time since his contacts with the Yashiro Commission can come in helpful if you need to avoid conflict with the Shogun’s forces.

His role in the Kamisato Clan is that of a ‘housekeeper,’ despite his seeming tremendous power surrounding Inazuma. Thoma will always find plenty to do on the Kamisato Estate because he is in charge of things like cleaning and cooking.

From February 16, 2022, through March 8, 2022, Thoma appears on Yae Miko’s banner as a rate-up character. In Wanderlust Invocation and Epitome Invocation, he is also accessible at a regular charge! Yae Miko’s banner also includes Thoma, Fischl, and Diona as rate-ups! The below Genshin Impact Thoma guide will give you all the information about him.

Genshin Impact Thoma Guide: Staff of Homa

The Staff of Homa is the finest weapon Thoma can have. It’s now on the weapons banner, so if you don’t already get it, you still have a chance to grab it. Because this is a 5-star weapon, you’ll need a lot of Primogems to obtain the weapon banner. 

Crit Damage is a bonus stat on the Staff of Homa, making it perfect for dealing huge amounts of damage. It raises your maximum HP by 20% and enhances your attack based on your maximum HP. When the wielder’s HP is less than 50%, the bonus is increased even more.

Genshin Impact Thoma Guide: Skyward Spine

Skyward Spine is another 5-star weapon with energy recharge as a bonus stat that we can suggest. It boosts the crit rate by 8% and the standard attack speed by 12%. When standard and charged strikes hit an adversary, a vacuum blade is created with a 50% chance of dealing 40% of the attack as damage in a short area of impact. Only once every two seconds is this possible.

Blazing Blessing and Crimson Ooyoroi boost Attack and Defense!

Blazing Blessing is Thoma’s elemental skill. A deadly kick from Thoma does AoE Pyro damage as he thrusts his spear into the ground. Thoma can also absorb a certain amount of damage with Blazing Blessing’s Blazing Barrier.

On the other hand, Crimson Ooyoroi is the elemental burst. Thoma spins his spear causing pyro damage to all nearby foes as he slices through them with scorching flames. If Thoma (active characters) remains in this state, he will utilize Fiery Collapses that deal Pyro damage to everyone nearby and summon Blazing Barriers.

What Artifacts should you choose for Thoma?

The 2-piece Emblem of Severed Fate and 2-piece Tenacity of the Millelith sets are the best recommendations. 20% more energy is going to be recharged and your HP will increase. In addition to energy recharge on the Sands, HP% should be the main stat on the Goblet and HP% for the Circlet.

If you prefer, you can also use 2-piece Tenacity of the Millelith and 2-piece Crimson Witch of Flames. A 20% increase in HP will be accompanied by a 15% increase in pyro damage bonus. We recommend Pyro Damage bonus on the Goblet, energy recharge on the Sands, and Crit Rate or Crit Damage on the Circlet.

Genshin Impact Thoma Guide: Passive skills

One of Thoma’s passive skills is Imbricated Armor. Your shield strength will rise by 5% for six seconds if you get or renew a Blazing Barrier. This can be triggered every 0.35 seconds.

The other two are Flaming Assault and Snap and Swing. In Flaming Assault, Crimson Ooyoroi’s Fiery Collapse increases damage dealt by 2.2% of Thoma’s max health. Snap and Swing is useful when you are 20% more likely to score a double catch if you successfully fish in Inazuma with Thoma’s help.

Use Constellation 4 if you need Energy

Since Thoma’s Elemental Burst has 80 energy cost, he needs to recharge his energy. Constellation 4 will provide him with Extra energy which will ease this problem. His shields will also be more consistent with the first two constellations.

What do you get from Thoma’s Elemental Skill?

When Thoma’s Elemental talent is used, 4 Energy particles are released. This will be an excellent way for Thoma to acquire energy, given he has a very high Energy Cost. Thoma may provide Pyro shields to the squad as a protector. Thoma’s Max HP determines the strength of the shield. If you layer the shield, it will be much more powerful.

Thoma needs a Battery

The Burst can only be used by Thoma when he has 80 Energy. Even though his skill gives four particles, this amount is still quite high. In order to have his skills more consistent, it is recommended that he has a battery or a weapon that recharges energy.

Fire Collapses Can Disrupt Reactions

While the Elemental Burst of Thoma is effective at doing harm, it may also steal reactions from other members. This is especially problematic if you’re employing Thoma as a Shield Bot, since his damage will be significantly increased.

Having Thoma with Bennett will be a great advantage

Bennett and Thoma provide an excellent support core. Thoma can shield and snapshot to deliver extra damage, while Bennet offers a healing and attack benefit. Bennet’s C6 is genuinely effective when helping a pyro carry, and while supporting a non-pyro carry, they assure that everything you face will be affected by pyro and keep up responses. 

Thoma’s shield adds an extra layer of defense, making the carry invulnerable-even while hanging at 75% HP, it’ll be much tougher to burst. They can also repair one another’s energy problems with good particle regeneration.
