Best Amber Genshin Impact build: Artifacts, weapons, more 

Cassidy Stephenson

Amber is one of the first characters who players meet in Genshin Impact. If you’re looking to build her, we’ve got you covered.

As the only Outrider of Mondstadt’s Knights of Favonius, players meet Amber very early on in the game. She can be obtained by completing the Archon Quest Wind-Riding Knight from Prologue: Act I – The Outlander Who Caught the Wind.

In terms of combat, Amber doesn’t score too well on Genshin Impact’s tier list. The character’s only pluses are distracting enemies with her Elemental Skill and for exploration purposes.

Nevertheless, if you’re still looking to build this Pyro unit, keep reading for our recommended Artifacts, weapons, and more.

Best Amber Artifacts in Genshin Impact

We recommend running the 4-piece Emblem of Severed Fate on Amber as a Burst Sub-DPS. This set will increase her Energy Recharge by 20% in addition to improving her Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge.

Alternatively, you could place the 4-piece Noblesse Oblige set on Amber. These Artifacts will not only increase her Elemental Burst DMG but will also buff party members’ ATK by 20% for 12 seconds after using Fiery Rain.

Best Amber weapons in Genshin Impact

The best weapon choice for Amber is the 5-star option Elegy for the End to increase both her Elemental Mastery and ATK by consuming sigils. You will gain sigils by using Amber’s Elemental Skill or Elemental Burst every .2s even when she is not in use.

Another choice is the 5-star Skyward Harp to increase Amber’s CRIT DMG by 20% in addition to having a chance to inflict an AoE attack to deal 125% Physical ATK DMG.

If you don’t want to potentially waste a 5-star weapon on Amber, we recommend using the 4-star Favonius Warbow. This will grant Amber a chance to generate Elemental Particles that will restore her Energy.

Weapon Details

Best Amber team comp in Genshin Impact

Xingqiu in Genshin Impact

The best team composition featuring Amber would utilize the Vaporize Elemental Reaction. Therefore, we suggest picking party members such as Xingqiu, Bennett, and Kazuha. You should take advantage of Xingqiu’s Hydro application, which occurs when he is not on the field.

Bennett’s sixth constellation will grant Amber a Pyro DMG Bonus while healing the party. Lastly, Kazuha will be able to infuse opponents with Pyro through his Elemental Burst. If you have Yelan, you could replace Xingqiu with her if you wish to do so.
