Introduction

Huohuo is a healer character who can regenerate Energy and boost ATK for multiple allies, and restore HP to all members of the team.


Skills Overview

Basic Attack - Banner: Stormcaller

Deals Wind DMG equal to 25%—55% of Huohuo's Max HP to a target enemy.


Skill - Talisman: Protection

Dispels 1 debuff(s) from a single target ally and immediately restores this ally's HP by an amount equal to 14%—22.4% of Huohuo's Max HP plus 140—623. At the same time, restores HP for allies that are adjacent to this target ally by an amount equal to 11.2%—17.92% of Huohuo's Max HP plus 112—498.4.


Ultimate - Tail: Spiritual Domination

Regenerates Energy for all allies (excluding this character) by an amount equal to 15%—21% of their respective Max Energy. At the same time, increases their ATK by 24%—43.2% for 2 turn(s).


Talent - Possession: Ethereal Metaflow

After using her Skill, Huohuo gains Divine Provision, lasting for 2 turn(s). This duration decreases by 1 turn at the start of each Huohuo's turn. If Huohuo has Divine Provision when an ally's turn starts or when an ally uses their Ultimate, restores HP for that ally by an amount equal to 3%—4.8% of Huohuo's Max HP plus 30—133.5. At the same time, every ally with 50% HP or lower receives healing once.
When Divine Provision is triggered to heal an ally, dispel 1 debuff(s) from that ally. This effect can be triggered up to 6 time(s). Using the skill again resets the effect's trigger count.


Technique - Fiend: Impeachment of Evil

Huohuo terrorizes surrounding enemies, afflicting Horror-Struck on them. Enemies in Horror-Struck will flee away from Huohuo for 10 second(s). When entering battle with enemies in Horror-Struck, there is a 100% base chance of reducing every single enemy's ATK by 25% for 2 turn(s).

Team Recommendations

1) Expensive Team

The term expensive is not because all allies are 5-star, but because the main DPS in this team requires a lot of Energy to trigger their Ultimate. Thus, since Huohuo's Ultimate helps generate Energy for all allies, these characters can greatly benefit from the free energy and can efficiently reduce the character's cycle pressure.
Huohuo: Healer
Argenti / Jingliu / Yanqing: Main DPS
Pela / Silver Wolf: Debuffer
Asta / Tingyun: Buffer

2) DoT Team

Aside from Energy, Huohuo's Ultimate also increases allies' ATK. DoT team is usually built (specifically Kafka) with high ATK for the damage, so in a way, the ATK bonus further increases Kafka's DMG. If Huohuo uses Penacony, Land of the Dreams set, Sampo (same element as Huohuo) will also gain a damage bonus.
Huohuo: Healer
Kafka: Main DPS + DoT 1
Sampo: DoT 2
Guinaifen / Luka / Pela / Tingyun: DoT 3 / Debuffer / Buffer

3) High-Speed Team

Huohuo: Healer
Jing Yuan: Main DPS
Topaz & Numby: Sub-DPS
Asta / Tingyun: Buffer

4) Wind Mono Team

Huohuo: Healer
Blade: Main DPS
Silver Wolf: Debuffer
Bronya: Buffer

5) F2P Team

If you're a new player or have limited 5-star characters because you're free-to-play gamers, but luckily got Huohuo, here's the F2P team.
Huohuo: Healer
Dan Heng: Main DPS
Pela: Debuffer
Asta / Tingyun: Buffer
