This Sub-DPS build for Amber provides different buffs and utilities for the team while sacrificing a bit of her personal DMG. It is important to have Amber's Elemental Burst always ready after cooldown for this build.

Amber's Talent Priority

Sub-DPS
1st Elemental Burst
2nd Elemental Skill
3rd Normal Attack

The bulk of Amber's DMG comes from her Elemental Burst, so it should be maxed out first. Next would be her Elemental Skill, it may not be as powerful but it still provides some utility in keeping the enemies distracted.

With Amber in the team, she can help get rid of the weaker mobs with her Elemental Burst and use her Elemental skill to help Hu Tao focus on dealing with a single enemy.

Amber's Elemental Skill can also help in keeping Zhongli's shield undamaged and have it active for a longer duration.

Main DPS Options

Substitute Characters
Genshin - Aloy ImageGenshin - Yanfei ImageGenshin - Diluc ImageGenshin - Klee Image

Any Main-DPS character that needs a taunter to help keep enemies distracted will find that Amber is an excellent enabler in the team. She's also a decent Pyro applier with her Elemental Burst, which can help with certain vaporize or reverse melt team comps.

Sub-DPS Options

Substitute Characters
Genshin - Rosaria ImageGenshin - Chongyun ImageGenshin - Fischl Image

Sub-DPS characters that can work off of Amber's Pyro application on enemies are good additions to the team. Amber's quick Elemental Burst animation will tremendously help in creating quick character swap rotations.

Support Options

Substitute Characters
Genshin - Jean ImageGenshin - Venti ImageGenshin - Kazuha ImageGenshin - Diona ImageGenshin - Kokomi Image

Amber's taunt won't always be active. This is when healers and shielders can make up for that downtime in supporting the party.

Certain support characters who can amplify the Pyro DMG of Amber or the entire party. Anemo characters are especially useful if they use the Viridescent Venerer artifact set, which can reduce the Pyro resistance of enemies!

Taunt Enemies with Baron Bunny

Genshin - Amber Baron Bunny

Amber's Elemental Skill will deploy her Baron Bunny, which allows her to taunt and lure enemies in.

Once the Bunny explodes or is destroyed by enemy hits, it will deal AoE Pyro DMG and give a lot of Energy particles to funnel for her Elemental Burst.

Genshin - Amber Weakspot Hit

Amber's Charged Attack is great in the early game for aiming and shooting at weak spots. You can stun enemies like Ruin Guards by hitting their eye weakpoints!

Hitting Weakpoints will Always Crit

Hitting enemies' weak spot will always deal critical damage! If you want to build a Aimed Attack-focused Amber, you can dedicate your resources to Crit DMG instead.

Useful for Overworld Puzzles

Amber is the best when trying to solve puzzles such as lighting up torches and braziers, hitting floating balloons, clearing vines, or even exploring the icy mountains of Dragonspine with Amber's fiery arrows!

Amber's In-Game Information

Character Thoughts About Amber

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Barbara ImageBarbara I've seen Amber rushing out of Mondstadt on a mission countless times. Being an Outrider doesn't look easy.
Genshin Impact - Bennett ImageBennett Oh, I know who you mean. The girl who's always charging around all over the place. She's always off adventuring in the wild, just like me... But if you ever see her near a cooking pot, you'll soon find a cloud of thick black smoke blowing in your direction, followed by the smell of burnt steak... Huh, maybe she was born unlucky too?
Genshin Impact - Eula ImageEula Amber's someone who thinks for herself. On the day I first joined the Knights, she cleaned my dormitory and gave me a tour of the headquarters, and she's helped me with a myriad of other things in the time since. Now, everyone looks at me like the older sibling who needs the younger sibling to do everything for them! Hmph. For this, she must pay!
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean I must say that Amber's development has impressed me recently. I hope that one day, her deeds will become the words of a bard's tale.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya That Outrider is a clever and righteous knight. Be careful not to step out of line in front of her.
Genshin Impact - Klee ImageKlee Amber is the best! Baron Bunny is so fluffy and he even explodes! So. Cool.
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa Amber was just a young girl when she joined the knights, an in the blink of an eye, she's turned into such a strong young lady. I'm curious to see what she'll be like a few years from now.
Genshin Impact - Noelle ImageNoelle I really look up to Amber. Not only is she an accomplished knight, but she's a kind person too. She taught me how to make a Baron Bunny. I keep it in my Person for luck, and it look quite alright, don't you think?
Genshin Impact - Sucrose ImageSucrose I'm curious to why her doll is called "Baron Bunny," it clearly has nothing to do with a rabbit at all. Oh, the headband makes it look like it has rabbit ears you say? Hmm... that's heavily reliant on the rabbit stereotype, is it not? Many rabbits' ears are floppy.

Amber's Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Albedo ImageAlbedo About Albedo
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 never can quite tell what he's thinking... Who knows what goes on in that mind of his...
Genshin Impact - Bennett ImageBennett About Bennett
Hmm? Bennett... I feel like I've heard that name before... Oh! Yes, he's that hot-blooded guy from the Adventurers' Guild, right! I tend to come across him way out in the wild from time to time, he seems to really love treasure hunting.
Genshin Impact - Eula ImageEula About Eula
Eula is a great friend of mine! You just need to get used to her sense of humor and you'll get along fine! The only reason she's misunderstood by so many people is her family name. How can I get them to see her for who she really is?
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean About Jean
Help: After the Grand Master left on his expedition, all the affairs of the Knights of Favonius, both big and small, have been left up to Jean. If only there was more I could do to help her...
Care: Jean might still be working? We should invite her for coffee... Let's go.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya About Kaeya
Concerns: ...I'm feeling uneasy all of a sudden! Was that Kaeya with you earlier? Did he give you any trouble?
Culprit: There's something weird-looking about the dandelions in the garden... Hmm, I bet Kaeya had something to do with this!
Genshin Impact - Klee ImageKlee About Klee
Klee? She can be a bit cheeky sometimes, but everyone in the Knights of Favonius likes her. Although... I really ought to keep a closer eye on her if I wanna keep her from getting put in confinement by Jean again.
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa About Lisa
Listening to Stories: When you have time, we should go see Lisa! Last time I saw her, she was telling me about a story involving a treasure in the Dragonspine area. But, we got cut off before she could finish. I can't wait to hear the rest of her story![
Admiration: If Lisa's not sleeping, she'll be reading! I don't know how she does it, I wouldn't be able to sit still for that long.
Genshin Impact - Noelle ImageNoelle About Noelle
You wanna know about Noelle? She's super resilient. Still, since she's younger than us we should still look out for her.
