Kamisato retainer and expert shield provider builds that work best for Thoma.
The best Thoma build is out there.
Players who completed the Genshin Impact Inazuma storyline will recognize the fixer and Kamisato housekeeper.
On the second Genshin Impact banner of the 2.2 updates, which went live on November 2, Thoma appears alongside Hu Tao, a four-star character with Pyro vision.
After his banner expires, you can still get him, but his drop rate won’t increase unless he appears on another special wish banner.
Using Thoma’s elemental skill or burst, the active character is surrounded by a Pyro shield.
Thoma’s maximum HP determines the shield’s ability to absorb damage.
Due to his Flaming Assault passive, his burst has a high Pyro damage potential that also scales with maximum HP.
The best Genshin Impact Thoma builds for both shield support and pyro DPS playstyles are listed in this guide.
Genshin Impact Thoma shield support build
Genshin Impact Thoma’s best support build is:
Staff of Homa: Tenacity of the Millelith (two-set) and Emblem of Severed Fate (two-set)
Due to its HP percent secondary stat and its three-star rating, Black Tassels make an excellent choice for our Thoma support build.
Thoma’s shield power scales with his HP, so no other weapon can boost it as much.
Alternatively, the five-star Staff of Homa provides an above-average base attack and a useful passive ability if you insist on having both.
In comparison to the Black Tassel, it doesn’t provide as much extra HP, but it does come pretty darn near.
This weapon also increases Thoma’s attack power based on his maximum health.
It isn’t absolutely necessary, but it also isn’t a complete waste of time.
The two-piece Tenacity of the Millelith artefact set, which grants a 20% health bonus, is our first pick.
Because Thoma can’t activate the effect frequently enough, the four-piece set won’t work for him.
For this shield support build, a two-piece Emblem of Severed Fate is a better choice.
In order to get more protection from Thoma’s elemental burst and recharge it more quickly, you should do this.
In order to maximize the effectiveness of the shield, we suggest placing a high HP stat on both the Goblet of Eonothem and the Circlet of Logos.
So we want to make sure that Thoma can use this whenever the cooldown ends, so instead of a third HP percent, we should give him an energy recharge stat on the Sands of Eon slot.
Genshin Impact Thoma Pyro DPS build
In terms of DPS, the following Genshin Impact Thoma build is the most effective:
Noblesse Oblige (two-set) Polearm and Crimson Witch of Flames Artifacts (two-set)
In the event that you don’t want to focus on Thoma’s shield ability, you can instead build him to take advantage of his elemental burst.
Pyro area-of-effect attacks are unleashed for 15 seconds after the active character’s initial burst damage, which is already significant.
As long as Thoma is out of combat, this effect will continue to have an impact on the environment.
Thoma’s elemental burst has a short cooldown of 20 seconds, but it comes at a high energy cost: 80.
Thanks to its secondary energy recharge stat, polearms like the five-star Engulfing Lightning can fix this problem for the time being.
Since Thoma gains energy from using this weapon, his attack power will be enhanced as well (over 100 percent ).
The two-piece Noblesse Oblige and the two-piece Crimson Witch of Flames are the best artefact sets to use because they increase burst damage by 20 percent and 15 percent, respectively.
One of these can be swapped for a two-piece Emblem of Severed Fate set if you need more energy.
In this build, the Sands of Eon slot should be filled with energy.
When the 20-second cooldown expires, you can use your elemental burst, and any remaining energy boosts your attack power when using the Engulfing Lightning polearm.
Prioritize Pyro damage on the Goblet slot.
The Circlet slot is best filled with critical damage, but if you don’t have enough, go with critical rate instead.
When it comes to Genshin Impact Thoma builds, it doesn’t matter if you use him as a shield support or a Pyro DPS.
