Hu Tao is a 5 Star Pyro Polearm Character that was initially released back in version 1.3 of Genshin Impact and has received only two re-run banners as of now, with her second rerun coming out in version 3.4. Hu Tao joined with the likes of other 5 Star characters on being called a 5 Star Version of a 4 Star Character who can supposedly out-perform her damage but of course. She proved them wrong and now stands as the best Pyro unit in the game. As such, many people have long debated on what Constellations to pull on her and whether or not they are worth it in the long run. In this guide, we will give you a complete breakdown of Hu Tao Constellations and suggest what to aim for while pulling for her in Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact: Constellations for Hu Tao
|C1: Crimson Bouquet||While in a Paramita Papilio state activated by Guide to Afterlife, Hu Tao’s Charge Attacks do not consume Stamina.|

|C5: Floral Incense||Increases the Level of Spirit Soother by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.|
|C6: Butterfly’s Embrace||Triggers when Hu Tao’s HP drops below 25%, or when she suffers a lethal strike: Hu Tao will not fall as a result of the DMG sustained. Additionally, for the next 10s, her All Elemental and Physical RES is increased by 200%, her CRIT Rate is increased by 100%, and her resistance to the interruption is greatly increased.

Genshin Impact: Constellations breakdown for Hu Tao
In this guide, we will do a complete breakdown of Hu Tao Constellations in Genshin Impact and how they work.
C1: Crimson Bouquet
Hu Tao’s C1 does not consume any Stamina when she uses her Charged Attack during her Paramita Papilio phase. Her C1 improves her damage and play style considerably well. To maximize Hu Tao’s damage, normally you would use her Charged Attacks the most as it gives out high amounts of damage. Her C1 allows her to dish out more Charged Attacks than what you would normally do on her C0.
C2: Ominous Rainfall
When Hu Tao is in her Paramita Papilio state and deals Pyro damage to enemies, they will be inflicted with her Blood Blossoms. This is scaled as Hu Tao’s Elemental Skill. With her C2, her Bloom Blossom’s Pyro damage is now scaled off of 10% of Hu Tao’s Max HP. Hence, increasing the damage potential. Generally, her C2 does not give an up-rise to high damage scaling compared to her at C0.
C3: Lingering Carmine
Hu Tao’s C3 increases her Elemental Skill talent level by 3. Her Elemental Skill is where her most damage potential is located and as such, having her C3 can considerably help her increase the Paramita Papilio state damage.
C4: Garden of Eternal Rest
Her C4 acts more of a niche Constellation. It may be hard to notice in terms of the difference in damage. In short, when the enemies are affected by Hu Tao’s Blood Blossoms and are defeated by her. She will increase the Crit Rate of all party members by 12% and this will last for 15 seconds. The Crit Rate buff does not apply to Hu Tao. But this C4 Constellation acts as more of a Support to her team members rather than Hu Tao herself. Overall, not a good Constellation to wish for.
C5: Floral Incense
It increases her Elemental Burst talent level by 3. Just like her C3 as we said previously, having Hu Tao’s Elemental Burst level increase can help with maximizing her damage potential since her Elemental Burst can dish out a high amount of damage. Overall, not a bad Constellation to have.
C6: Butterfly’s Embrace
Her C6 is quite frankly Hu Tao in a pure Berserk mode that seems to be added for damage showcase reasons. Hu Tao’s Physical RES increased by 200%, and her CRIT Rate increased by 100%. And her resistance to the interruption is increased significantly. Even though it is by far an amazing Constellation to have, it is not necessary and is heavily situational.
Hu Tao is one of the few reliable 5-Star DPS characters in the game. Her Character as C0 works as well as it is. Even her best quality of damage improvement is locked in on C1 which is a lot easier to unlock compared to other Character’s full potential locked within C4 and above. Her C1 is still debatable on whether people should aim for it or not.
Generally, C1 does improve with handling her CAs. But it is not so much as a glaring difference which is why it is up to the player’s choice if they can handle and be familiarized with Hu Tao in C0 compared to her C1.
