Talents and Constellations

For skill and talents, we are covering Hu Tao combat talents, passive talents, and all 6 constellations.

Hu Tao Talent - Secret Spear Of Wangsheng
Secret Spear of Wangsheng (Normal Attack)
  • Normal Attack: Performs up to six consecutive spear strikes.
  • Charged Attack: Consumes certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward, dealing damage to opponents along the way.
  • Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
Hu Tao Talent - Guide To Afterlife
Guide to Afterlife (Elemental Skill)
Only an unwavering flame can cleanse the impurities of this world.

Hu Tao consumes a set portion of her HP to knock the surrounding enemies back and enter the Paramita Papilio state.

Paramita Papilio

– Increases Hu Tao’s ATK based on her Max HP at the time of entering this state. ATK Bonus gained this way cannot exceed 400% of Hu Tao’s base ATK.
– Converts attack DMG to Pyro DMG, which cannot be overridden by any other elemental infusion.
– Charged Attacks apply the Blood Blossom effect to the enemies hit.
Increases Hu Tao’s resistance to interruption.

Blood Blossom

– Enemies affected by Blood Blossom will take Pyro DMG every 4s. This DMG is considered Elemental Skill DMG.
– Each enemy can be affected by only one Blood Blossom effect at a time, and duration may only be refreshed by Hu Tao herself.
– Paramita Papilio ends when it’s duration is over, or Hu Tao has lefy the battlefield or fallen.

Hu Tao Secret Spear technique is based on several rules, the first of which is:

“The spear open the path to the afterlife, and the butterflies bridge this world and the next.”
Hu Tao Talent - Spirit Soother
Spirit Soother (Elemental Burst)
Commands blazing spirits to attack, dealing Pyro DMG in a large AoE.

Upon striking the enemy, regenerates a percentage of Hu Tao’s Max HP. This effect can be triggered up to 5 times, based on the number of enemies hit.

If Hu Tao’s HP is below or equal to 50% when the enemy is hit, both the DMG and HP Regeneration are increased.

Supernatural activity by those who have already left this world is a source of great anxiety for the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. In such cases, cremation always lets Hu Tao find peace of mind. The more anxious she feels, the stronger the flame.
