If you have the recourses, this is the best weapon in the game for Hu Tao, as well as Zhongli.
  • Elegy for the end: A weapon focused on increasing elemental mastery and energy recharge. Ideal for mounts such as Venti and a great alternative for Kujou Sara.

Genshin Impact 2.2 Hu Tao Banner Release Date

Hu Tao's replay banner is set to debut on November 2, 2022 and will be available until November 23, 2022. That means you'll have a whole 21 days to try and remove the 77th Funeral Home Director Wangsheng. Remember that you can reach Mercy after making 75-90 total wishes on character-driven wish banners. The same can be applied to targeted weapon banners. It is unknown if the second chapter of Hu Tao's story quest "Papilio Charontis Chapter" will start with the banner, but it is possible.



Should you shoot for Hu Tao?

Hu Tao is considered one of the best DPS in the game, with Cryo Archer Ganyu 5 stars and Cryo Claymore Eula 5 stars. She's also the best Pyro DPS in the game by a landslide. Hu Tao is capable of inflicting massive amounts of damage on her own, but she really shines when paired with Reaction Catalysts such as Xingqiu, Barbara, Diona, Kaeya, among others, as they allow her to trigger the most damaging reactions in the game, Melt (Cryo + Pyro) and Vaporize (Hydro + Pyro). Overall, Hu Tao is a must-have for any element-focused comp, and we recommend shooting for her even if you already have a Pyro DPS. If you already have him with his featured weapon, it's also recommended to shoot for his first Constellation, as this allows you to chain charged attacks in sequence without losing stamina.


It's good to remember that with each banner, the game's Spiral Abyss also changes, so be sure to get all the available Primogems before the reset at the end of this month. For those currently counting their resources, it's also good to keep in mind that version 2.3 of the game will be released on November 24, featuring both an Albedo replay and the debut of the game's new 5-star Geo Claymore. , Arataki Itto. The new version will also bring two new bosses to the game.
