Aesperia can be a pretty scary place, with heaps of baddies always ready to sink an arrow into your butt or a poison fang in your neck. Luckily, Tower of Fantasy’s Huma is here to soak up some of that damage with her hefty, powerful shield – then dish out some damage of her own when she transforms that shield into a massive axe!

Impressive, right? Well, if you want to get Tower of Fantasy’s Huma on your side, then you’re in the right place. In this guide we take a look at her banner, best build, team comps, matrices, and more, as well as laying out all of the attacks and skills you can unleash with the help of her awesome Molten Shield V2 weapon.

Who is Tower of Fantasy’s Huma?

Huma is a young woman, currently under the medical care of Hykros after contracting a rare disease that made her develop superhuman strength. She lost all memory of her past, as well as her former personality. As such, the sum of her knowledge about the world since waking up is limited to Hykros, with everything beyond that bringing her anxiety. However, despite being quite an introvert, nothing can stop her when she puts her mind to something.

Huma is an SSR Simulacra who wields Molten Shield V2, a defence type weapon that deals flame damage.

What’s the best Tower of Fantasy Huma build?

Huma is a powerful Simulacra whose weapon, Molten Shield V2, is fit for both defence and offence. It switches between the high impact axe form and the super tanky shield form, allowing you to both protect and attack with great efficiency. She’s easily the best at filling the traditional tank role out of all the Tower of Fantasy characters we’ve seen so far, and her advancement only amplifies her damage, making her a true force to be reckoned with.

Tower of Fantasy Huma advancement

You can advance Tower of Fantasy weapons by using their corresponding fusion cores, which you get by collecting more than one copy of a character. After you get your first copy of Huma and her Molten Shield V2, you can purchase another copy through the Commissary’s weapon store for 120 black gold. Alternatively, you can get a duplicate of Huma by pulling on the banner, but, of course, this is entirely up to RNG.

Advancing your weapons by spending fusion cores and gold unlocks special bonuses. Here are all of the bonuses you gain from unlocking each of Huma’s advancement stars.

  • One star: gain a stack of strong shield upon casting Huma’s discharge, or when using a dodge skill or branch skill while in shield form. Each stack of strong shield grants 10% damage reduction for 15 seconds and stacks up to three times. Switching to axe form converts all strong shield stacks to sharp axe stacks, each of which increases damage by 15% for 15 seconds. Switching to a different weapon cancels this effect.
  • Two stars: increase the weapon’s base HP growth by 16%
  • Three stars: while in shield form, branch/dodge attacks deal additional damage to targets equal to 4% of the user’s current HP
  • Four stars: increase the current weapon’s base attack growth by 32%.
  • Five stars: after switching to shield axe, immediately gain 30% incoming damage reduction that diminishes by 10% every three seconds, down to a minimum of 10%. Switching weapons cancels this effect. Cooldown is 30 seconds.
  • Six stars: enhances both shield conversion and axe conversion. Shield conversion enhancement: increases damage dealt by 60% and expands the radius of the flame zone by 30%. Axe conversion enhancement: no longer shares its cooldown with shield conversion. For the next five seconds after you use this skill, all damage received turns into HP (up to a maximum of 15% of your Max HP)

What’s the best Tower of Fantasy Huma matrix set?

As with all SR and SSR Simulacra, Huma has her own matrix set designed around her kit. This is a perfect choice, as it boosts Huma’s damage and takes advantage of her DoT application. Alternatively, you can mix two of King’s set with two of Shiro’s set to maximise Huma’s shield shatter and damage benefits.

Of course, Huma, King, and Shiro’s sets are all SSR, meaning they can be difficult to farm. If you’re looking for a more affordable SR option, Sobek’s Swamp Shadow is a great choice, as it increases Molten Shield V2’s damage output and attack range. Or, if you want an R-rank set to get you by while you wait for something better, go with Self-explosive for its flame damage boost.

Find out more about different matrix sets, where to get them, and how to upgrade them in our Tower of Fantasy matrices guide.

What are the best Tower of Fantasy Huma team comps?

Huma is a great tank character that benefits from the fortitude weapon resonance effect. As such, teaming Molten Shield V2 up with Tower of Fantasy Meryl’s Rosy Edge is a great move. In this lineup, Huma’s weapon offers shields and tankiness, while Meryl’s shatters enemy shields and offers some great damage and CC resist through her spin attack.

For the third slot, you can bring Tower of Fantasy King’s Scythe of the Crow, which deals heaps of damage, offers even more shield breaking potential, and has a quicker hit rate than the other weapons, giving you a bit more mobility and flexibility when needed.

Alternatively, you can replace King with Tower of Fantasy’s Nemesis for amazing utility, with her brilliant healing, electrodes, and impressive volt damage output. She offers great self-sustain, and, when combined with Huma, and Meryl, is brilliant in PVP play.
