Genshin Impact Albedo Character Guide

In this Genshin Impact Albedo Character Guide, we will talk about the 5-star Geo Character Albedo who was added to the roster with update 1.2 of Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact Albedo

in Genshin Impact, Albedo is a soft-spoken Chief Alchemist of the Knights of Favonius in Mondstadt. He is a 5-star Geo & sword-wielding support character.

He can inflict tons of damage as well especially with his sword (Festering Desire).

Albedo’s banner is about to go away for some time and will most probably return later. So, choose carefully if you want to spend on him or not.

We will list out all of Albedo’s movesets and abilities below. His passive talents, constellations, build suggestions, best-suited artifacts, and ascension/ talent materials requirements will be covered as well.

Albedo Attacks and Abilities

Melee: Favonius Bladework – Weiss

  • Normal Attack: Execute up to 5 rapid strikes.
  • Charged Attack: Consumes Stamina to unleash 2 rapid sword strikes.
  • Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, inflicting damage to opponents along the path, and deals AoE damage upon impact.

Elemental Skill: Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma

  • Albedo uses alchemy to create a Solar Isotoma, which deals AoE Geo damage.
  • When enemies in the Solar Isotoma field take damage, it will generate Transient Blossoms which deal AoE Geo damage. Damage dealt scales off Albedo’s defense.
  • Transient Blossoms can only be generated once every 2s.
  • When a character is located at the edge of the Solar Isotoma, the Solar Isotoma uses Geo power to form a crystallized platform that lifts the character to a certain height. Only one crystallized platform can exist at a time.
  • Only one Solar Isotoma created by Albedo can exist at a time, and it is considered a Geo construct.
  • Hold to designate the location of the skill.
  • The Solar Isotoma can be stood on and used to gain elevation.

Elemental Burst: Rite of Progeniture: Tectonic Tide

  • Albedo can command Geo crystals to surge and burst forth, dealing AoE Geo damage in front of him.
  • If a Solar Isotoma created by Albedo himself is on the field, 7 Fatal Blossoms will be generated in the Solar Isotoma field, bursting violently into bloom and dealing AoE Geo damage.
  • Tectonic Tide damage and Fatal Blossom damage will not generate Transient Blossoms.

Build Suggestions

Albedo is a Support/ DPS hybrid character. If you want to use him to his maximum potential, then you should fit him with other Geo Characters.

He has a short skill cooldown and high energy generation so, continuously taking him in & out of combat is a viable strategy.
