Amber Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths
• Can use the Bow to hit enemies' weak spots.
• Can distract enemies with her Elemental Skill.
• Fire element is useful for exploration.
Weaknesses
• Low base damage and HP.
• Skills have a long cooldown.
• Requires Character Ascension Phase 4 to unlock her full potential.

How to Use Amber

Hit Weak Spots from a distance

Amber's Charged Attack is great in the early game for aiming and shooting at enemy heads and other weak spots. This is effective against enemies like the Ruin Guard, Ruin Grader, and Ruin Hunters, since hitting their weak points will leave them stunned for a few seconds.

Hitting enemies' weak spot will deal CRIT DMG. This means you can deal a high amount of damage to enemies from a distance before they can close in.

Elemental Skill taunts enemies

Amber's Elemental Skill, Explosive Puppet, allows her to lure enemies out with the help of Baron Bunny. Enemies will attack Baron Bunny, and will cause it to explode and deal Pyro DMG.

This is a very helpful ability, as it keeps enemies away from you, allowing you to shoot them down much easier.

Useful for Starting Fires

Amber Burning Branches

Amber can use the Bow to inflict the Pyro Element on objects around the map, which can have various effects and solve puzzles found throughout the world. You can clear obstacles such as vines, and light up torches and braziers. This makes her a great character to have while exploring Teyvat.

Great for exploring elevated areas

Amber's Passive Skill “Gliding Champion” reduces the stamina consumption of all party members by 20%. This allows for easy travel across mountainous areas such as Liyue and Dragonspine.
