Genshin Impact: Thoma Release Date, Abilities, and More
As the Tartaglia banner in Genshin Impact is coming to an end the Hu-Tao banner is about to start. There is going to be a new Four Star Thoma who is going to be introduced along with the much-awaited Hu-Tao rerun. There are also going to be Sayu and Diona who are going to be present in the banner alongside Thoma as featured four stars. There is a lot of excitement in the community regarding the new four-star character. Thoma is a four-star polearm user with a pyro vision. Let us take a look at Thoma as a character.
As mentioned above Thoma is a four-star polearm user who has a Pyro Vision. He provides a solid shield along with applying pyro with the help of his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst. Thoma will be made available in the game from 2nd November 2021. Let us take a look at Thoma’s talent.
Talent : Normal Attack
Thoma performs up to four consecutive spear strikes. While using charge attack Thoma lunges forward dealing damage to opponents along the way.
Talent Elemental Skill: Blazing Blessing
Using this talent will cause Thoma to vault forward dealing AOE pyro damage. It also applies Pyro to Thoma and creates a shield that is based on the HP of Thoma. The shield is more effective against Pyro damage and if a player gets another shield before the original runs out they will stack on top of each other and their duration will be refreshed. The shield duration is 8 seconds and the skill has a cooldown of 15 seconds. The first constellation will reduce the cooldown by 3 seconds and constellation 2 will increase the cooldown of his shield by 3 seconds
Talent Elemental Burst: Crimson Ooyoroi
Thoma will deal AOE pyro damage and will also gain a shield. The shield gained from the elemental burst will be identical in strength compared to the shield gained by using his elemental skill During the duration of his elemental burst he will also periodically deal pyro to enemies in front of him. If a player gets another shield before the original runs out they will stack on top of each other and their duration will be refreshed. Constellation 1 of Thoma will cause the duration to be decreased by 3 seconds.

When his shield is obtained or refreshed all-party members’ normal, charged, and plunging attack damage is increased by 15% for 6 seconds.
Character Ascension materials
For Thoma players will need to get the fluorescent fungus that can be found on Tsurumi Island. They also need insignia dropped by treasure hoarders and for the boss material, Thoma will need smoldering pearls which can be obtained from defeating the Pyro Hypostases.
For the weekly boss drop, players need the Hellfire Butterfly which is dropped by Signora. Players will also need the philosophies of transience to level up their talents which can be obtained from the domain violet court on Monday/Thursday/Sunday.
It is recommended that players run the 4 pieces of the tenacity of melilite to maximize their shield. As no data is currently available it is recommended that players be ready to put HP artifacts to increase the strength of the shield gained from using his elemental skill and elemental burst. For Thoma’s weapon, 3-star black tassel may be a good choice as it provides HP to the player in 4 stars any weapon with energy recharge as its main stat is good for Thoma.
Given the recent trends seen while introducing the new four stars, it may be reasonable to say that Thoma might work as good support for hu-tao by providing her with a shield.
