miHoYo has released the latest Genshin Impact gameplay video, which showcases the support skills Thoma can provide. Thoma will appear in Genshin Impact as a Pyro polearm user. However, he will be able to provide more than just quick bursts of damage for the player’s party. Utilizing Thoma’s skills will allow for players to create defensive barriers to defend Thoma, and other party members.
Thoma will be able to create a “Blazing Barrier,” which will allow for Thoma to absorb damage. The strength of the barrier will be be based on Thoma’s max HP. However, the barrier cannot exceed a certain percentage of Thoma’s max HP. Thoma can create the Blazing Barrier while using his elemental skill to deal AoE damage to any enemies within the vicinity of the attack.
His elemental burst is another shield, however it extends to all characters within your party. When activating Thoma’s elemental burst, Crimson Ooyoroi, he will do AoE Pyro damage, create another barrier, and imbue all attacks with AoE Pyro damage.
