C2 A subordinate's Skills extends the duration of Thoma's elemental rampage by 3 seconds.

The C4 Long-Term Planning restores 15 energy points after casting the elemental rampage.

How to play Thoma in Genshin Impact ?

Thoma's attack in Genshin Impact

Thoma's gameplay in Genshin Impact revolves mainly around his shields. He will be used to protect your team, thus being able to replace a healer.

To play Thoma well, our advice is to start by placing a first Blazing Barrier with his elemental attack Blazing Blessing. The shield lasts 8 seconds and its absorption capacity is calculated according to Thoma's maximum HP.

Then switch to another character and perform Thomas' elemental rampage as soon as possible. Crimson Ooyoroi hits enemies with area Pyro damage, then applies the Scorching Ooyoroi effect for 15 seconds. From then on, when the deployed character performs a normal attack, it deals area Pyro damage and creates a burning barrier. The shield has the same characteristics as the elemental attack.

When a shield is already active, the remaining damage absorption accumulates with the new shield and its duration is reset. With the Imbricated Armor passive, when the active character obtains or updates a burning barrier, the strength of the shield increases by 5% for 6 seconds, the effect can stack up to 5 times.

It is recommended that you upgrade Thoma's attack and elemental rampage to increase the absorption capacity of his shields.

If Thoma applies the Pyro element with its elemental rampage at regular intervals even when it is no longer present, it takes 2.5 seconds between each application. He is no match for Xiangling in this area.
