Hu Tao consumes a portion of her HP to knock the surrounding enemies back and enter the Paramita Papilio state.

Paramita Papilio

  • Increases Hu Tao's ATK based on her Max HP at the time of entering this state. ATK Bonus gained this way cannot exceed 400% of Hu Tao's Base ATK.
  • Converts attack DMG to Pyro DMG, which cannot be overridden by any other elemental infusion.
  • Charged attacks apply the Blood Blossom effect to the enemies hit.
  • Increases Hu Tao's resistance to interruption.
  • Blood Blossom

    Enemies affected by Blood Blossom will take Pyro DMG every 4s. This DMG is considered Elemental Skill DMG.
    Each enemy can be affected by only one Blood Blossom effect at a time, and its duration may only be refreshed by Hu Tao herself.

    Paramita Papilio ends when its duration is over, or Hu Tao has left the battlefield or fallen.
