Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Thoma

The Kamisato Clan housekeeper comes to Genshin Impact as a 4-star, polearm-wielding character with the Pyro affinity. Here's what we think is the best build for Thoma in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Thoma

Subtitled the Protector From Afar, Thoma is now available in Genshin Impact.

A polearm wielder, he is aligned with the Pyro element. He's ideal as a support, with shields and buffs aplenty. Our build reflects this.

As of release on November 2, 2021, you can get Thoma from the Hu Tao-focused banner Moment of Bloom.

The best weapons for Thoma in Genshin Impact

The Engulfing Lightning polearm is ideal for Thoma, as it grants Energy Recharge on Elemental Burst use. This is perfect when switching out to your main DPS.

If you haven't pulled this weapon yet, then "The Catch" is a good substitute.

Engulfing Lightning

★★★★★

Energy Recharge

Timeless Dream: Eternal Stove

ATK increased by 28/35/42/49/56% of Energy Recharge over the base 100%. You can gain a maximum bonus of 80/90/100/110/120% ATK. Gain 30/35/40/45/50% Energy Recharge for 12s after using an Elemental Burst.

"The Catch"

★★★★

Energy Recharge

Shanty

Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 16/20/24/28/32% and Elemental Burst CRIT Rate by 6/7.5/9/10.5/12%.

The best Artifacts for Thoma in Genshin Impact

Again, with the Energy Recharge-focused build you'll want to run with the Emblem of Severed Fate set. Load it with HP% for additional scaling. Even going 2/2 with Tenacity of the Millelith would be a good option for more HP. 

Alternatively, you can mix the Noblesse Oblige set's Elemental Burst DMG with Crimson Witch of Flames for the additional Pyro DMG.

Emblem of Severed Fate

(2) Energy Recharge +20%

(4) Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.

Tenacity of the Millelith

(2) HP +20%

(4) When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.

Noblesse Oblige

(2) Elemental Burst DMG +20%

(4) Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.

Crimson Witch of Flames

(2) Energy Recharge +20%

(4) Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.

Talent and Constellation priority for Thoma in Genshin Impact

You'll want to max out the Crimson Ooyoroi Elemental Burst first, as that provides the most utility. Focus on the Blazing Blessing Elemental Skill next, or the shielding it offers.

Constellation-wise, A Comrade's Duty (C1) is great for reduced cooldown on Blazing Blessing, while Long-Term Planning (C4) is outstanding for Energy restoration.

The best stat priority and substat priority for Thoma in Genshin Impact

You absolutely want to load Thoma up with HP for this build, to maximise the scaling on his abilities.

Stat Priority

  • HP%

Substat Priority

  • HP%
