Best Artifact for Thoma

As a playable character, the best thing about Thoma is his Elemental Burst ability, Crimson Ooyoroi. When players use Thoma’s ability, they get a Pyro Shield that is great at absorbing damage. 

Thanks to the Fiery Collapse special effect, players can proc Melt, Vaporize, and other elemental reactions to further increase the damage output. 

The Crimson Ooyoroi ability requires 80 energy, so now you know which artifact is best for Thoma—the one that increases his Energy Recharge and gives buffs associated with it. 

With that said, for Thoma, the best artifact set is Emblem of Severed Fate. You can also use other alternatives like Noblesse Oblige and Crimson Witch of Flames, in case you don’t have good Severed Fate pieces. 

Emblem of Severed Fate Set Bonus 

  • 2-Piece Set
    • Energy Recharge + 20%
  • 4-Piece Set
    • Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.
