Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Albedo

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Albedo

The Captain of the Knights of Favonius Investigation Team has come to Genshin Impact as a 5-star, sword-wielding character with Geo affinity. Here's what we think is the best build for Albedo in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Albedo

Subtitled the Kreideprinz ("chak prince"), Albedo is now available in Genshin Impact.

A sword wielder, he is aligned with the Geo element. He's best used as a sub DPS and support character. He scales with DEF, and his Elemental Skill has one of the lowest cooldowns in the game.

You can only get Albedo from Event Wishes, as a five-star character.

The best weapons for Albedo in Genshin Impact

We've opted for the Harbinger of Dawn weapon in our build. While only a three-star weapon, its passive is pretty special - it ramps up CRIT Rate when HP is above 90%, which is great for that extra damage when you've switched him in.

Alternatively, you can opt for the Festering Desire, a four-star weapon that increases Elemental Skill DMG and Elemental Skill CRIT Rate.

Harbinger of Dawn




When HP is above 90%, increases CRIT Rate by 14/17.5/21/24.5/28%.

Festering Desire


Energy Recharge

Undying Admiration

Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 16~32% and Elemental Skill CRIT Rate by 6~12%.

The best Artifacts for Albedo in Genshin Impact

For this build, you have a little versatility. We've opted for the Archaic Petra set thanks to its Geo synergy and buff to all party members, or you can opt for Noblesse Oblige and its buff to ATK following an Elemental Burst.

However, perhaps the most ideal use is to split them 2/2.

Archaic Petra

(2) Geo DMG Bonus +15%

(4) Upon obtaining an Elemental Shard created through a Crystallize Reaction, all party members gain 35% DMG Bonus for that particular element for 10s. Only one form of Elemental DMG Bonus can be gained in this manner at any one time.

Noblesse Oblige

(2) Elemental Burst DMG +20%

(4) Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.

Talent and Constellation priority for Albedo in Genshin Impact

Albedo's Elemental Skill, Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma, has one of the lowest cooldownds in the game, and you'll want to take advantage by upgrading it first.

Then, focus on the Elemental Burst, Rite of Progeniture, for AoE damage.

When it comes to Constellations, Opening of Phanerozoic (C2) ramps up the DMG of Albedo's Elemental Skill, so go with that.

The best stat priority and substat priority for Albedo in Genshin Impact

The great thing about Albedo is that given he scales off DEF, you can use all those artifacts that would normally be useless.

Stat Priority

  • DEF% / Energy Recharge
  • Geo DMG Bonus
  • DEF % / CRIT Rate / CRIT DMG

Substat Priority

  • DEF%
  • CRIT Rate
  • Energy Recharge
