• Provides a consistent and free off-field Geo DMG as long as the enemies are hit by any sources of damage. |
• Has one of the lowest Elemental Skill CD and lasts for 30 seconds, essentially making it a semi-permanent ability as long as it says on the field.
• Gives an additional 125 Elemental Mastery after using Elemental Burst.
• Solar Isotoma's platform can easily be destroyed by certain bosses or enemies. In some cases, some arenas won't allow you to create one at all.
• Before C2, skill (DEF) and burst (ATK) have split-scaling. As Albedo should focus on building DEF for his Elemental Skill, the damage of his burst will not be significant.
Goblet: Geo DMG Bonus
Circlet: CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG
|Substats||DEF%, CRIT Rate, CRIT DMG|
This Albedo build utilizes the effects of the Husk of Opulent Dreams artifact set, which buffs Albedo's DEF and Geo DMG, both stats that increase his Elemental Skill DMG.
If you don't have Cinnabar Spindle, which was an event-exclusive weapon, you may opt to use Harbinger of Dawn or Wolf-Fang. Golden Troupe is also another alternative should you wish to farm that instead alongside Marechaussee Hunter.
You should prioritize on levelling up Albedo's Elemental Skill as most of the DMG he deals comes from that talent. Afterwards, level up his Elemental Burst for even more DMG.
We don't recommend on levelling up his Normal Attack talent unless you plan on using Albedo on-field.

2-PC: DEF +30%

When off the field, the character gains 1 stack every 3s. Curiosity can stack up to 4 times, each providing 6% DEF and a 6% Geo DMG Bonus. When 6 seconds pass without gaining a Curiosity stack, 1 stack is lost.
2-PC: Elemental Skill DMG +20%
4-PC: Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 25%. Additionally when not on the field, Elemental Skill DMG will be further increased by 25%. This effect will be cleared 2s after taking the field.

|Recommended Weapons||How to Get|
Mono-Geo team comps are Albedo's best teams to utilize the Geo Resonance. He also serves as a battery for Geo characters with high energy requirements like Itto and Gorou.
Rainbow teams that can have an additional slot for Albedo is decent enough as it provides free off-field DPS at no cost whatsover. His Elemental Mastery buff on his burst is also good for teams that have transformative reactions such as Vaporize or Electro-Charged.
Flower of Eden
Transient Blossoms generated by Albedo's Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma regenerate 1.2 Energy for Albedo.
Opening of Phanerozoic
Transient Blossoms generated by Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma grant Albedo Fatal Reckoning for 30s: Each stack of Fatal Reckoning increases DMG by 30% of Albedo's DEF. The effect stacks up to 4 times.
Unleashing Rite of Progeniture: Tectonic Tide consumes all stacks of Fatal Reckoning, increasing the DMG dealt by the Tectonic Tide and Fatal Blossoms based on the number of stacks consumed.
Grace of Helios
Increase the Level of Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
Descent of Divinity
Solar Isotoma increases Plunging Attack DMG by 30% for active party members within the AoE.
Tide of Hadean
Increases the Level of Rite of Progeniture: Tectonic Tide by 3. Maximum Upgrade level is 15.
Dust of Purification
If active party members within the AoE are protected by a shield created by Crystallize, Solar Isotoma increases their DMG by 17%.
|Rating||Constellation Effect / Merits|
|C2||★★☆||• Elemental Burst will scale from DEF, increasing Albedo's DPS.|
C2 increases your Elemental Burst the more DEF you have. This also makes DEF% more desirable for Albedo than split chasing for ATK.

Sealed Scroll ×12
Sealed Scroll ×18

Solar Isotoma Supplemental DMG
Albedo is a master of supplemental damage and his Elemental Skill, Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma should always be active to optimize his damage potential.
Since Solar Isotoma is a Geo Construct it can be placed in advance of a fight, such as a Ley Line Blossom or Domain, and its low CD allows it to be moved easily.
No, Albedo's Transient Blossoms scale in DEF and only DEF. If you want to maximize Albedo's Elemental Skill DMG, you will need to invest in DEF stats in your artifacts or weapon.
The initial damage of Albedo's Elemental Skill when he places the flower still scales in ATK, but its Blossom effect can only scale with DEF.
Placement of Solar Isotoma is important when fighting Boss enemies as it will be destroyed instantly if placed directly on them. If you plan to use Albedo in a boss fight, try to position the construct to the around the Boss to minimize the chance of it being destroyed.
Rite of Progeniture: Tectonic Tide
After using Albedo's Elemental Burst, all characters in your party will automatically receive a 125 Elemental Mastery bonus for a few seconds. Swapping from Albedo to a party member to trigger an elemental reaction will ensure massive reaction damage.
Similar to Noelle, Albedo can take advantage of the unwanted artifacts that have DEF as the main stat, as his skills scale with his DEF. A usually unwanted artifact for other characters, might actually be the perfect match for Albedo!
Albedo has a 10% chance to double the out come of the weapon material you are crafting. This effect can be extremely useful if you are lacking resources or when crafting multiple weapon materials.
|Perform up to 5 rapid strikes.
Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash 2 rapid sword strikes.
Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
|Attribute||Effect (Lvl 1)|
|Charged Attack DMG||47.3%+60.2%|
|Charged Attack Stamina Cost||20.0|
|Low/High Plunge DMG||128%/160%|
|Albedo creates a Solar Isotoma using alchemy, dealing AoE Geo DMG. At specific intervals, hits on enemies within the Solar Isotoma field will cause the Solar Isotoma to generate Transient Blossoms which deal AoE Geo DMG to the enemy based on Albedo's DEF. Only one Solar Isotoma can exist at any given time, and the Solar Isotoma is considered a Geo Construct.
When a character stands at the locus of the Solar Isotoma, it will gather the power of Geo to form a crystallized patform that lifts the character up to a certain height. Only one platfrom can exist at a time.
|Attribute||Effect (Lvl 1)|
|Transient Blossom DMG||134% DEF|
|Crystaliized Geo energy bursts forth at Albedo's command, dealing AoE Geo DMG in front of Albedo. 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.)|
|Attribute||Effect (Lvl 1)|
|Elemental Burst DMG||367%|
|Fatal Blossom DMG||72.0% each|
|Transient Blossoms generated by Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma deal 25% more DMG to opponents whose HP is below 50%.|
|Using Rite of Progeniture: Tectonic Tide increases the Elemental Mastery of nearby party members by 125 for 10s.|
|When Albedo crafts Weapon Ascension Materials, he has a 10% chance to receive double the product.|

|Banner Info||Wish Sim||All Wishes|
|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 never can quite tell what he's thinking... Who knows what goes on in that mind of his...|
|Diona||Alchemy genius? Hmm... I wonder if he knows of a way to finally help me make a drink that people don't like?|
|Jean||Sometimes I feel that terms like "genius" were originally created for Albedo.|
|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?|
|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.|
|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.|
|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...|
|Rosaria||He's like an oil painting you find hanging on the wall in some ancient hall, profound and mysterious... hard to see through. But what can I say, I find people with stories... interesting.|
Artistry: 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 are amazing... to me, it's where alchemy meets art.
Talent: 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.
|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!|
|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...|
Barbara? She's a very earnest Deaconess. I once had the opportunity to sketch her a simple portrait... What happened to the sketch? Ah yes... Albert offered to purchase it, but I rejected his bid and gave it to the Acting Grand Master. Social relations... really require a lot of effort.
Jean? She has served exceptionally well as Acting Grand Master, one can even say she is more reliable than Grand Master Varka. Perhaps in our hearts, we all eagerly await the day she can become the official Grand Master herself.
Indeed, I view Klee as my younger sister. Whenever she gets herself into some explosive sort of trouble, I can only console myself with the fact that her current destructiveness is nothing compared to that of Miss Alice.
Lisa? I always am impressed by the valuable perspectives she brings to discussions. But is a person with her talents satisfied with such a basic occupation as librarian? There must be some hidden reason for this.
Direction: Sucrose? I think I more or less understand why she is so dedicated to her research in bio-alchemy... Either way, I'm happy to see her succeed more and more in her endeavors.
Habits: Working with Sucrose on alchemy research is quite pleasant, but she has some... stubborn qualities in regards to certain aspects unrelated to research. For example, I have told her numerous times to just call me "Albedo" since we are about the same age, but she insists on addressing me in an excessively formal manner. ...Whatever she prefers, I guess.
Oh, Xingqiu? I find his written works quite interesting. The Yae Publishing House in Inazuma has been asking that I cooperate with a different author for greater royalties. Hmph, do I seem the type to be swayed by a few extra Mora?
