If you already have a Hu Tao and you are wondering whether to pull another copy of her to get the constellation buff that allows you to charge attack without losing stamina, or to pull for a Staff of Homa which is her signature weapon then read this guide.
The Benefits of Having a C1 Hu Tao
- C1 Will allow you to spam charged attacks without losing stamina
- It will make it easier and more comfortable to play Hu Tao
- A significant increase in overall damage
- Easier and cheaper to get than Staff of Homeless
- You can use your stamina to dodge or chase
The Down sides for a C1 Hu Tao
- It is worth the investment but not necessary so F2P can skip it
- You will miss out on learning how to animation cancel
The Benefits of Pulling for Staff of Homa
- The best polearm for Hu Tao with its passive buff and Crit Damage
- An indirect upgrade to your whole account as you can use it on many other characters
- The damage increase is even more than a C1 Hu Tao without a Staff of Homa
The Down sides for Staff of Homa
- Very expensive to guarantee a copy as you might need 210 pulls to get one if unlucky while a C1 Hu Tao will cost you 160 Pulls Max.
- There are other good Polearms that are easier to get and refine to Rank 5 like Dragon’s Bane
- Not worth at all for F2P to pull on weapon banners
If you love Hu Tao as a character and you plan to main her, then going for a C1 is a great quality of life upgrade, if you are free to play then it is fine at C0 you will just struggle a bit to learn how to jump cancel and you might die more due to stamina loss.
Staff of Homa on the other hand is a great weapon to have on your account if you can afford the price of 210 pulls but not a necessity as there are other weapons that can work fine with Hu Tao.
