Players who are planning to roll on the Hu Tao Banner will want to get farming as early as possible for upgrades materials for the upcoming character. Hu Tao will be arriving in Genshin Impact on March 2, so a little headstart on gathering up everything you need means she will be able to carry a fight for you as early as possible.

Hu Tao is a Pyro Polearm user and is the manager of the funeral parlor in Liyue. She is also a big of a trickster and is prone to pulling pranks on Qiqi.

The first thing you will need to know is all the ascension materials for Hu Tao, which will dictate what you need to farm.
