Genshin Impact’s best Albedo build utilizes a number of meta Artifacts and weapons, which help maximize the 5-star Geo character’s damage. 

As the Chief Alchemist and Captain of the Knights of Favonius Investigation Team, Albedo is no stranger to the tense battles that occur in Teyvat. 

The Kreideprinz uses his sword and AoE Geo abilities to decimate waves of enemies, while his tanky defenses enable him to effortlessly sponge incoming damage. When Albedo is equipped with the best Artifacts and weapons, the intellectual captain can defeat even the game’s hardiest of enemies.

Albedo abilities in Genshin Impact

  • Normal Attack: Albedo performs up to six rapid strikes.
  • Charged Attack: Albedo consumes a portion of stamina and unleashes two rapid sword strikes.
  • Plunging Attack: Albedo plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Albedo Elemental Skill: Abiogenesis Solar Isotoma

Albedo creates a Solar Isotoma using alchemy, which deals AoE Geo DMG on appearance. When enemies within the Solar Isotoma zone take damage, the Solar Isotoma will generate Transient Blossoms which deal AoE Geo DMG. The DMG dealt scales off Albedo’s DEF. 

When an allied character stands near the Solar Isotoma, the construct will accumulate Geo power to form a crystallized platform that lifts the character up into the air. 

Albedo Elemental Burst: Rite of Progeniture Tectonic Tide

Albedo’s unleashes a wave of Geo crystals directly in front of him, which burst, dealing AoE Geo DMG to any enemies hit. If a Solar Isotoma is on the field, seven Fatal Blossoms will be generated in the Solar Isotoma field, bursting violently and dealing further AoE Geo DMG.

Albdeo Constellations

If you find multiple copies of Albedo, you’ll have access to some of his great constellation buffs.

  • Level 1 – Flower of Eden: Transient Blossoms generated by Albedo’s Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma regenerate 1.2 Energy for Albedo.

Best Albedo Artifacts in Genshin Impact

Albedo’s Artifacts are very easy to farm.

The best artifact set to choose for Albedo is the 4-piece Husk of Opulent Dreams

However, we recommend using the 4-piece Golden Troupe or 2-piece Husk of Opulent Dreams with 2-piece Golden Troupe. 

As of writing, this is the best Albedo Artifact set:

Artifact Details
Husk-of-Opulent-Dreams-Genshin-Impact-Artifact-setHusk of Opulent Dreams 2-Piece: DEF +30%
4-Piece: A character equipped with this Artifact set will obtain the Curiosity effect in the following conditions: When on the field, the character gains 1 stack after hitting an opponent with a Geo attack, triggering a maximum of once every 0.3s. When off the field, the character gains 1 stack every 3s. Curiosity can stack up to 4 times, each providing 6% DEF and a 6% Geo DMG Bonus. When 6 seconds pass without gaining a Curiosity stack, 1 stack is lost.
Golden Troupe in Genshin ImpactGolden Troupe 2-Piece: Elemental Skill DMG +20%
4-Piece: Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 25%. Additionally when not on the field, Elemental Skill DMG will be further increased by 25%. This effect will be cleared 2s after taking the field.

Best Albedo weapon in Genshin Impact

The best Albdeo weapon is Cinnabar Spindle. This 4-star sword increases Elemental Skill DMG based on DEF. If you don’t have this event-exclusive weapon, we recommend using either Harbinger of Dawn or Primordial Jade Cutter

Weapon Details
Cinnabar Spindle Elemental Skill DMG is increased by 40% of DEF. The effect will be triggered no more than once every 1.5s and will be cleared 0.1s after the Elemental Skill deals DMG.
Harbinger of Dawn When HP is above 90%, increases CRIT Rate by 14%.
Primordial Jade Cutter HP increased by 20%. Additionally, provides an ATK Bonus based on 1.2% of the wielder’s Max HP.

Albedo Talent Level-Up and Ascension materials

Albedo Talent and Ascension materials can be found in Mondstadt and Liyue, which means you’ll be able to farm them no matter what your Adventure Rank is. In order to level up and ascend Albedo, you’ll need to fight the Geo Hypostasis and the Wolf of the North to get the various Topaz drops. 

As Albedo excels at supporting your main DPS, you’ll want to max out his Elemental Skill to help generate elemental reactions. Once that’s maxed out, simply pump levels into his Burst, then level up Albedo’s Normal Attack.

Albedo Genshin Impact trailer

Albedo’s character trailer, “Albedo: Contemplation in Chalk,” showcases how the 5-star Geo character utilizes his abilities to obliterate his foes. The Kreideprinz can be seen using his sword to swiftly cut down waves of Hilichurls before delivering Geo justice with his Elemental Skill and Burst. 

Best Albedo team comp

Zhongli is a great pick for any Genshin Impact team comp.

The best Albedo team comp utilizes Zhongli, Bennett, and Venti. Having another Geo character like Zhongli will provide a 15% increase in shield strength, while characters protected by a shield will have a 15% DMG increase. To make matters even better, dealing damage to enemies will also decrease their Geo RES by 20% for 15s.

Add in the buffs from Bennett’s Elemental Burst, and you have a comp that ensures Albedo is dealing as much damage as possible. Lastly, Venti will enable you to effortlessly group up enemies. Simply activate Zhongli and Albedo’s Elemental Bursts and watch as every enemy is deleted from the game.
