How to Use Thoma

Elemental Skill Shields Character

Genshin - Thoma
Elemental Skill: Blazing Blessing

Thoma's Elemental Skill, Blazing Blessing, deals AoE Pyro DMG to enemies while providing a shield. Thoma's shield is unique as its DMG Absorption can stack based on the remaining Absorption of the previous barrier.

In addition, Thoma will apply Pyro to himself, cleansing certain deterimental effects on him.

Elemental Burst Provides Off-Field Pyro DMG

Genshin - Thoma
Elemental Burst: Crimson Ooyoroi

Thoma's Elemental Burst, Crimson Ooyoroi, also deals AoE Pyro DMG to enemies while also surrounding the party with a Scorching Ooyoroi buff.

What is Scorching Ooyoroi?

Scorching Ooyoroi functions similary as Xingqiu's Rainswords as it can deal Pyro DMG even if Thoma isn't on the field. It can also provide Blazing Barriers when using Normal Attacks once every 1s.

Refreshes Existing Barrier

A Blazing Barrier has a duration of 8 sec, and it refreshes every time your active character uses your normal attacks! The shield also stacks, which means that for every Scorching Ooyoroi proc, you refresh both duration and shield effectivity!
