Possible Artifacts

Thoma's most distinctive ability is the creation of a very resistant Pyro shield with ease, using both, Elemental skill and Elemental Burst.

However, Thoma can suffer from the high cost of his abilities. So We recommend getting a complete set of four pieces set of Emblem of Severed Fate.

Another option will be two pieces of Emblem of Severed Fate and two pieces Tenacity of Tenacity of Millelith with HP and Energy Recharge stats.

With the difference, Thoma is a support that can Crit. There is no need to discard, Crit. Rate and Crit. DMG artifacts

Additionally, players need Agnidus Agate, common crafting material for Pyro Characters, and tons of Mora to level up Thoma to the highest level.
