Albedo Portrait

Albedo Quick TL;DR Support Build Guide

Updated for 2.3 😁!

PSA #1: A DPS and their Supports have a unique relationship: DPS bullies the Supports into doing their homework, then hands it in to look like they’re really smart — that is a DPS

PSA #2: Both Albedo’s abilities scale off ATK, but DEF can play a huge role depending on his constellation. He can practically bring anything to life, but chose a frickin ROCK FLOWER… b r o

Man literally plants a Geo flower into the ground, doing AoE Geo DMG and creates a field. Hold to choose placing location. YOU CAN STAND ON THE CENTER OF THE FLOWER TO MAKE IT INTO AN ELEVATOR! Slap enemies inside the field to do some extra Geo DMG

PSA #3: IMPORTANT TIPS REGARDING E

  1. THE FIELD STAYS WHEN YOU SWAP CHARACTERS
  2. E is NOT and enchantment like Chongyun’s E
  3. Transient Blossom procs (the Geo DMG) only occurs when you damage enemies INSIDE the field. If they’re outside the field, they will not receive the Geo DMG proc
  4. Transient Blossom procs occurs roughly every 2 seconds (it’s basically like a Geo version of Xingqiu’s Q)

The E can be very sensitive, so make sure you don’t accidentally cancel your combo’s or lose aggro because you stepped on the flower!

The Transient Blossom procs are essential to his kit, but it does not mean you should double-down on DEF% main stats unless you’re strictly planning on centralizing your build on E. A single DEF% Sands will be more than fine!

Basically the Geo DMG procs slap harder
Literally drops a giant rock flower infront of you, dealing massive AoE Geo DMG. Spreads like pollen, since it also causes 7 mini AoE Geo explosions inside Albedo’s E

IMPORTANT TIP: You do NOT need to be in the field to cause the 7 Geo explosions. His E just has to be spawned, and you can cast Albedo’s Q anywhere to cause the explosions!

JUST MAKE SURE ALBEDO’S E IS OUT BEFORE YOU Q!

Just use Q then proc elemental reactions. Albedo = Geo Sucrose

Talent Leveling Order: E > Q > Normal (don’t really need to level Normal

WEAPON #1 (Recommended for best E DMG): Cinnabar Spindle

How do I get it D: ? – Shadows Amidst Snowstorms Event

Has base DEF% scaling and since it snapshots you’ll have the 40% DMG on E permanently

Cinnabar Spindle is basically best in slot for Albedo since it just boost DEF by a ton, and the DMG provided by 40% of his DEF (80% at R5) it provides for E will snapshot (meaning even off-field, the Transient Blossom procs will also gain DMG). Also, huge plus that it’s an event item that you can R5 easily!

If you have Primordial Jade Cutter it still does great. Keep in mind that Jade Cutter will bolster both E and Q, while Cinnabar will focus on E DMG. So if you’re only playing off-field Support Albedo, Cinnabar will most likely still get you better mileage.

Honorable mention is Festering Desire, for it’s ER% (which is always nice) and that it also boosts E’s DMG and CRIT% (ideal if you’re low on CRIT%, but not necessary)

WEAPON #2 (Recommended for F2P): Harbinger of Dawn

How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)

Has base CRIT DMG% scaling and basically ensures E will CRIT

Harbinger of Dawn is also an easy sword to refine/level, even if you’re F2P (literally a 10x roll on any banner will probably get you it). Just make sure to basically stay 100% HP, or you’ll lose a lot of CRIT% (which effectively also punishes your CRIT DMG).

However, it’s also worth mentioning since you’re only using Albedo to quickly E then swap, chances of getting hit are low. Just watch out for corrosion from the Rifthounds, since the DoT damage affect your whole team.

ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for massive DPS): Husk of Opulent Dreams

How do I get it D: ? – Slumbering Court Domain (AR 30 Locked, 20 Resin per run)

Boosts DEF by a lot and basically guarantees a permanent DEF + Geo DMG buff!

Husk of Opulent Dreams is the new artifact set, and it’s basically made for Albedo. The +30% DEF alone is great, but the 4x effect essentially gives Albedo an additional 24% DEF bonus + 24% Geo DMG buff. You don’t even have to worry about losing the stacks since Albedo is basically off-field 90% of the time.

4x Opulent is strong for burst DPS hybrid Albedo, but if you’re too lazy to farm for the new artifacts you can just run 2x Archaic + 2x Opulent (or Noblesse). It’s a good placeholder that still significantly bolsters Q DMG!

Main stats:

SandsGobletCirclet
DEF%Geo DMG%CRIT% or CRIT DMG

Substats: CRIT% > CRIT DMG > DEF% > ER%

If you want other characters let me know. Hope this helped. Bye.

  1. You accidentally wrote that the “Festering Desire” can be obtainable from gacha. Maybe change it so people saving up for his rerun know that the weapon is an event-exclusive 😀

  2. what about albedo with def/geo/def
    i have 2k def this way, since I only use albedo for his E, and I have HoD so I have
    52/169i score about 11k+ per E or is there any better build ?

    • That works! It’s a solid build with goodI would maybe try testing DEF circlet vs. CRIT DMG circlet just to see if your E can max out — but that involves more artifact grinding (ideally if you can get a CRIT DMG circlet with DEF% + DEF substats, that would be better I think)

  3. oh yes thats true, i just realized that omg lmao
    so my albedo stats with Def circlet with cr/cd 52/169
    Def : 2041
    Total Damage (240% skill damage crowned *2041 = 4898.5 + 90% geo dmg bonus = 9326.5 * 169 cr == 15.845

    while with cd with 44 flat def + 12% def
    Def : 1683
    Total Damage (240% * 1683 = 4039 + 90.4% = 7690 * 212 CD = 16.357

    total about 500 damage difference but if I can get better artifact with more def the difference should be higher

    • It’s a decent placeholder, but right now Husk just scales too well overall (for both his E and his Q, whereas Millelith is more support based)

    • Technically not untrue lmao. I can’t count how many times I’ve had to farm for a decent piece. It’s almost as if the game will give you good offensive stats, when you sometimes want just HP% lol
