Prioritize Building Elemental Mastery

- Nahida and Ayato will provide continuous Dendro Cores
- Thoma's slow Pyro application will insure you deal Burgeon instead of burning
- Kazuha will be able to increase the team's damage and deal shred to enemies

Other Characters That Work With Thoma

- Since Thoma's Pyro on-field attack sync with the active character normal attack, it's best paired with main DPS characters that utilize Normal Attacks
- Not good with Pyro characters since Thoma might end up stealing reactions from them instead
NahidaNahidaDendro TravelerDendro Traveler
- Thoma can work with most characters who have on-field abilities
- This doesn't apply only to Burgeon, but you do have the risk that Thoma might steal reactions. This is not ideal since Thoma has a lower damage multiplier
- Since you want Thoma for reactions, he works really well with Anemo characters who also run EM or those that deal Elemental shred

Notes About Team Comps For Thoma

Thoma has a very limited pool of characters he can work with due to his kit working best with those that deal Normal & Charged Attacks. There's also the concern that due to his Pyro application being relatively slow, he might end up stealing reactions, lowering the team's DPS.

Thoma Skill Guide & How To Use Thoma

Recommended Rotation For Thoma

Recommended Support Rotation
1Use Elemental Skill to gather energy
2Switch to another character until Thoma's Burst is active
3Switch to Thoma and use his Elemental Burst then his Elemental Skill
4Use Main DPS then spam Normal Attack. During this point, you will do periodic Pyro application
5Once Burst is down, repeat step 1

Uses Of Thoma's Elemental Skill

Provides Shield

When Thoma uses his Elemental Skill, it creates an on-field Pyro shield. This shield scales off his HP so the higher the HP, the tougher the shield is.

Deals Pyro Damage

Thoma will kick upwards during his Elemental Skill. This kick is powered by Pyro, applying the element to those it hits.

Uses Of Thoma's Elemental Burst

Provides Shield That Stacks With Thoma's Elemental Skill

Just like his Elemental Skill, Thoma's Elemental Burst creates an on-field shield. This actually stacks on top of Thoma's Skill's shield so you can have two shields at once.

Provide Additional Pyro DMG Through Fiery Collapse

While the Elemental Burst and Elemental Skill shield is active, every normal attack and charge attack you do will release a wave of Pyro dealing damage to enemies. This remains even after switching making it great for dealing Pyro-related reactions.

Thoma Wish & Constellation Guide

Should You Get Or Wish For Thoma?

Pull If You Need A Pyro Applicator & Shielder


Thoma is a reliable shielder with both of his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst providing on-field shields. However, he doesn't have good damage multipliers and his Pyro application is too long. He did find a new niche in Burgeon teams, making him a must have for those comps!

Best Constellation For Thoma

★★★・・C1: A Comrade's Duty
When a character protected by Thoma's own Blazing Barrier (Thoma excluded) is attacked, Thoma's own Blazing Blessing CD is decreased by 3s, while his own Crimson Ooyoroi's CD is decreased by 3s.
This effect can be triggered once every 20s.
★★・・・C2: A Subordinate's Skills
Crimson Ooyoroi's duration is increased by 3s.
★・・・・C3: Fortified Resolve
Increases the Level of Blazing Blessing by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
★★★★★C4: Long-Term Planning
After using Crimson Ooyoroi, 15 Energy will be restored to Thoma.
★・・・・C5: Raging Wildfire
Increases the Level of Crimson Ooyoroi by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
★★★・・C6: Burning Heart
When Blazing Barrier is obtained or refreshed, the DMG dealt by all party members' Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks is increased by 15% for 6s.

Constellation 4 For Easier Energy

Thoma, having 80 Energy Cost for his Elemental Burst, suffers from needing Energy Recharge. This problem will be eased by unlocking Constellation 4 which will give him extra energy. The first two constellation will also make his shields more consistent.

Blazing Blessing (Elemental Skill)

Thoma vaults forward with his polearm and delivers a flame-filled flying kick that deals AoE Pyro DMG, while also summoning a defensive Blazing Barrier. At the moment of casting, Thoma's Elemental Skill applies Pyro to himself. The DMG Absorption of the Blazing Barrier scales off Thoma's Max HP. The Blazing Barrier has the following traits:
・Absorbs Pyro DMG 250% more effectively.
・When a new Blazing Barrier is obtained, the remaining DMG Absorption of an existing Blazing Barrier will stack and its duration will be refreshed.

Crimson Ooyoroi

Thoma spins his polearm, slicing at his foes with roaring flames that deal AoE Pyro DMG and weave themselves into a Scorching Ooyoroi.

Scorching Ooyoroi

While Scorching Ooyoroi is in effect, the active character's Normal Attacks will trigger Fiery Collapse, dealing AoE Pyro DMG and summoning a Blazing Barrier. Fiery Collapse can be triggered once every 1s. Except for the amount of DMG they can absorb, the Blazing Barriers created in this way are identical to those created by Thoma's Elemental Skill, Blazing Blessing:
・Absorbs Pyro DMG 250% more effectively.
・When a new Blazing Barrier is obtained, the remaining DMG Absorption of an existing Blazing Barrier will stack and its duration will be refreshed.
The maximum DMG Absorption of the Blazing Barrier will not exceed a certain percentage of Thoma's Max HP.
If Thoma falls, the effects of Scorching Ooyoroi will be cleared.

Imbricated Armor

When your current active character obtains or refreshes a Blazing Barrier, this character's Shield Strength will increase by 5% for 6s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.3 seconds. Max 5 stacks.

Flaming Assault

The amount of typos in this article is doing Thoma a disservice :(

Anonymous 25

suomynonA20, do you have low cons or skill issues? Thoma isn't great at c0. C4 is where he starts to get good. For skill issues, make sure his shields are stacked for full strength. I have mine at c6 and he works perfectly in Abyss, and is the sole reason I'm in no hurry to pull Zhongli.
