Overview

Albedo is a Geo elemental character that is aimed at being a support dps. He provides some good and consistent extra damage every 2 seconds, if properly built by stacking his DEF stat, all while not requiring him to stay on the field and take time away from your main DPS. His main downsides are the randomness. The fatal blossoms from his burst hits each enemy within solar isotoma at least once, but then spawns randomly for the rest if there are less than 7 enemies. His elemental skill also does not guarantee an energy gain every proc, as well as not being able to proc when attacking shielded enemies like abyss mages.

Recommended Builds

DPS Build

If you want to build him as the main DPS for your team, then the standard damage dealer build for him will still work. 2 piece Gladiators Finale with 2 piece elemental damage, which in this case is Archaic Petra. Atk% on the hourglass, with Geo dmg bonus on cup, and crit damage/rate on the crown.

Best weapon for him is Summit Shaper, due to its high base attack as well as high secondary atk boost. The Black Sword is a good second option if you don't have any 5 star swords. Otherwise, Festering Desire, the weapon you get for free during Albedo's event, is a pretty solid option for him.

Support Build

For support DPS, the important set is just 2 piece Archaic Petra for the Geo dmg bonus. There are a variety of options you can go with for the rest, but they might not make that much of a difference. 4 Archaic set bonus is arguably the best if you can make proper use for it, but it's quite situational. 2 piece Defenders Will gives the highest damage for his transient blossom, but lowers his burst damage, and overall stats because it's not a 5 star artifact. 2 Noblesse Oblige if you want to give some boost to his ultimate, but not worth focusing if you don't get good substats.

Be sure to use DEF% main stat on the hourglass to increase the damage of transient blossoms. Cup is still Geo dmg bonus, and circlet is still crit rate/damage, but circlet can also be DEF% if you don't want to use his burst often.

In terms of weapons, Summit Shaper is his best in slot weapon, mostly because it gives such a big stat boost. The passive won't really be used since support Albedo don't stay on the field. Second best weapon is Harbinger of Dawn, but only if it's refinement 4/5. Because the transient blossom scales only with his DEF, the low attack won't be an issue. If you don't like playing around the passive of Harbinger of Dawn, then Festering Desire is also a solid option for him, and it's easier to level if you get it during the event.

Team Recommendations

If you want to build around him as the main DPS, the best character to pair him with is Venti. Venti's burst gathers enemies in the area, causing fatal blossoms from Albedo's burst to spawn in the vortex.

Other Geo characters like Ningguang, Zhongli, or Geo main character, are good options to pair with Albedo for the energy gain.

Fischl is in the same banner as Albedo, and a decent pair as well. Both Fischl and Albedo can be the role of main DPS or support DPS.

Having both Albedo and Sucrose in the party can increase your elemental mastery through their passives by a lot. This can help you get some big damage numbers if your other 2 party members are good with elemental reactions.

As a support, he can be good in just about any team. The transient blossoms can cause "Crystalize" reaction for some defensive purposes, or increase your damage if you use 4 Archaic Petra set on him.

Performs up to 5 rapid strikes.

Charged Attack
Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash 2 rapid sword strikes.

Plunging Attack
Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Elemental Skill

Albedo creates a Solar Isotoma using alchemy, which deals.

Solar Radiance:

  • When enemies within the Solar Isotoma field take DMG, the Solar Isotoma will generate Transient Blossoms which deal AoE Geo DMG. DMG dealt scales off Albedo's DEF.
  • Transient Blossoms can only be generated once every 2s.
  • When a character is located at the locus of the Solar Isotoma, the Solar Isotoma will accumulate Geo power to form a crystallized platform that lifts the character up 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
Designate the location of the skill.

Elemental Burst

Under Albedo's command, Geo crystals surge and burst forth, dealing AoE Geo DMG 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 DMG.

Tectonic Tide DMG and Fatal Blossom DMG will not generate Transient Blossoms.

Albedo in Character's Voicelines

CharacterIn-Game Transcription
Kaeya

Albedo eh? Calm, collected, and incredibly talented. He's the type everybody likes, some even more so than others. What, you into him as well?
Lisa
Lisa
Albedo is quite the alchemist. Just say the word and he'll come up with a good solution. He's easy on the eyes too, just like you.
Amber
Amber
Albedo spends most of his time in his workshop, tinkering away with all of his awesome stuff. But, when you see him in person, you can never quite tell what he's thinking.
Jean
Jean
Sometimes I feel that terms like genius were originally created for Albedo.
Sucrose
Sucrose
1. Talent? Let's hypothesize that he and I were to perform the same research — I'd spend my whole life playing catch up. But, my studying of bio-alchemy has nothing to do with evading his line of research, we just happen to have different interests and dreams — nothing more.

As his Assistant I learn so much each and every day. What's key is not his existing knowledge, but his talented way of thinking. No matter how complex the task at hand, his way of thinking ensures he gets to the bottom of it, and is able to explain it thoroughly. his methodologies and amazing... to me, its where alchemy meets art.
Klee
Klee
Me and Albedo have a secret code! Whenever he puts a sign on his workshop door saying "Experiment in Progress," that's code for "Come back later, Klee." Albedo's really nice and he's so patient with me, so I don't mind waiting until he's finished with his work.
Xingqiu
Xingqiu
I've thought of all the illustrations I want for each of the major event in the next three volumes! I should write my thoughts down before I forget them, and send them to Mr. Kreideprinz...
Venti
Venti
How do you explain white chalk in black soil, or the earth's dense crust amidst the emptiness of space? Same reason the purest soil gave birth to human life... It's an ancient power with unmistakable properties. Trying to harness it is dangerous indeed, I can't imagine what would happen if someone lost control of it in the city... Ah, never mind! What goes on within Mondstadt's walls is up to Mondstadt's people to deal with!
Mona
Mona
Albedo? Ah... I envy his ability to solely focus on his research without getting bogged down in mundane worldly affairs. What a wonderful life! If that batty old lady hadn't had one too many screws loose, perhaps that's the life I'd be living by now myself...
Diona
Diona
Alchemy genius? Hmm... I wonder if he knows of a way to finally help me make a drink that people don't like?

Albedo in Character Stories

CharacterExcerpt from Character Story Transcription
Sucrose
Sucrose
Story 4
As an assistant, Sucrose does everything she can to support Albedo, and even though his alchemical inquiries tend more towards the abstruse, she finds herself learning a lot every time.

After an experiment lasting five straight days and nights came to its end, Albedo noticed that Sucrose was on the brink of collapsing from exhaustion, and organized a mandatory seven-day vacation for her.

Sucrose began her holiday...
Klee
Klee
...Klee has many treasured memories of her mother.

This was the way things were until her parents left to travel to somewhere dangerous and far away.

They entrusted Klee to the care of Albedo and the Knights of Favonius.

Though still small, Klee knew she would one day become just like her mother.
Mona
Mona
Story 4
Mona will sometimes meet up with Klee and Albedo, her primary reason being to eat a free meal. Secondary to that is to exchange pointers with Albedo.

Since they are both people who seek to unveil the principles of the world, and both are students of famed masters, so aligning themselves with one another and working together is perfectly normal.

Mona strenuously defends her teacher's image in front of Albedo.

However, she also often complains about "that old hag."

"You say that your line has a unique pedigree — but you also say that your hag of a teacher is a stubborn dimwit. Which of your descriptions of your master is accurate?"

Albedo could not help but ask this question — and indeed, Mona found that she had never given this question much thought either.

Stroking her chin, she considered this deeply for a moment.

"Hmph. The techniques passed down to me are exceptional, of course, but my teacher is not my equal.

Does she know the market rates for eggs, butter or wheat? In this regard, I have already far surpassed her."
