Genshin Impact Guide – Best Team Comps for Hu Tao

  • Hu Tao/Zhongli/Xingqiu/Yelan Team: The Classic Combo

This is the most popular and effective team composition for Hu Tao, providing excellent synergy and protection for her.

  • Xingqiu – Xingqiu serves as an off-field Hydro DPS character, enabling Hu Tao to trigger Hydro reactions when she performs Normal Attacks. This synergy creates the Vaporize reaction, dealing substantial damage to enemies.
  • Yelan – Yelan also functions as an off-field Hydro DPS character, further enhancing the Vaporize reaction potential. Her Hydro abilities complement Xingqiu’s, ensuring a consistent damage output.
  • Zhongli – Zhongli’s shields are invaluable for keeping Hu Tao safe as she drains her own HP. Additionally, having two Geo characters on the team increases shield strength by 15%, enhancing overall survivability.
  • Hu Tao – As the star of the show, Hu Tao’s role is to deal massive Pyro damage using her Elemental Skill and Burst. She relies on a reliable shield to protect her while she sacrifices her HP.

If you don’t have Xingqiu and Yelan, several characters can replace them:

  • Kazuha/Sucrose – Adding an Anemo character like Kazuha or Sucrose to the team not only enhances overall team damage but also provides crowd control and Elemental Mastery (EM) buffs for Hu Tao.
  • Albedo – Albedo provides strong off-field damage with his Elemental Skill, and having two Geo characters boosts shield strength and Hu Tao’s damage by 15%.
  • Amber – When equipped with the Elegy of the End weapon, Amber can trigger its passive frequently, while her Noblesse Oblige set bonuses offer damage buffs to the team.

These team compositions allow Hu Tao to maximize her potential as a main DPS character, dealing high single-target damage and triggering powerful reactions. Zhongli or a shielder ensures her survivability, while the off-field Hydro characters enable Vaporize reactions for additional damage.

Remember, Hu Tao is a 5-star character and is only available to summon when she is a featured character on the Character Event Wish banner. Keep an eye out for upcoming announcements regarding her release dates.

Good luck creating your ideal team and unleashing the fiery power of Hu Tao in Genshin Impact!
