Notes About Team Comps For Thoma

Thoma 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.

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

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.

Where do I get a second Xiangling for the F2P team?

Luciel 21

Hi, you put Xiangling twice in his F2P team comp recommendation!

Enough you with your theory damm1t.

I just bring Thoma with HP-ER build to floor 12-2 and 12-3 and protection from him is bad, the entire damage from his burst also disappointing.
