We don’t know who we’ll be wishing for on Genshin Impact‘s next banner, but we’ve just got a significant hint. Mihoyo has officially introduced us to the 77th Director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, Hu Tao.
We first got a teaser trailer that takes place on Wuwang Hill in the dead of night – apparently, this is an ideal setting to bump into the spooky undertaker. Hu Tao then shows up alongside her fiery, ghostly companion and chats about spirits, butterflies, and even mentions Zhongli. She also says she’ll help us pass over before confirming she means the hill and not the afterlife – phew.
Mihoyo also published a blog post that gives you everything you need to know about the upcoming character. As previous leaks and datamines confirm, she’s a pyro polearm user who buddies up with her ghost pal to unleash devastating attacks. Hu Tao fits into the burst damage archetype and can sacrifice her health for more damage. That said, her elemental burst sets foes aflame and heals her in the process, so you can balance it out if you’re smart enough.
