Thoma was recently introduced in Genshin Impact’s Version 2.2 update after he was first revealed as a non-playable character in the Inazuma story arc. Thoma is a four-star Pyro polearm-user that players can use as a support character. Thoma serves as the caretaker of the Kamisato clan and is best used for flaming attacks, haggling for groceries, and protecting teammates.
Thoma is a 4-Star Pyro character in Genshin Impact who has a more defensive playstyle than other characters in the game. His Blazing Barrier elemental ability can stack for an extended duration and absorb more damage, making him an ideal support character to use alongside Hu Tao.
With the right build, Genshin Impact\’s Thoma can protect the whole team while still spreading Pyro damage effectively. Since he is perfect for fulfilling the support role, Thoma’s builds focuses on increasing the power of his shields and raising his health, which directly impacts his stats.

The Catch increases Thoma’s Energy Recharge up to 45.9% and is ideal for players who want to improve Thoma\’s Elemental Burst damage. The Catch increases the elemental burst damage by 16% and the elemental burst critical rate by 6%.The Staff of Homa is a 5-star polearm that gives an HP boost of 20%, extra crit damage, and a 0.8% attack increase based on Thoma’s maximum health.
Best Artifacts for Thoma
Using the appropriate artifacts also results in boosting Thoma’s abilities. These are the best artifacts for Thoma that will give players an advantage in battles:
The Emblem of Severed Fate is a two-piece artifact that will help Thoma’s elemental burst faster. When equipped, the Emblem of Severed Fate increases Thoma\’s Energy Recharge by 20% and enables him to use Blazing Barrier more often.The Crimson Witch of Flames is a two-piece set that increases the Pyro damage by 15%. When equipped, if Thomas triggers an overload or burning reaction; the damage is automatically increased by 40%. The artifact also increases Vaporize and Melt damage by 15%.
Best Talent for Thoma
The Scorching Ooyoroi will trigger Fiery Collapses that deal an Area of Effect Pyro damage and summon Blazing Barrier. The barrier created using the Scorching Ooyoroi talent is identical to his Elemental Skill but absorbs Pyro Damage 250% more effectively. If a Blazing Barrier already exists, its Damage Absorption will stack with the new barrier and even refresh the duration. However, it is worth pointing out that the Damage Absorption of the new barrier will not exceed Thoma’s maximum health percentage.
