How to Use Albedo

Maintain Solar Isotoma's Uptime

Genshin - Albedo
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.

Do Albedo's Transient Blossoms Scale in ATK?

Genshin - Albedo - Transient Blossom

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.

Solar Isotoma Placement

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.

Elemental Mastery Boost

Genshin Impact - Albedo Burst
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.

A Home for DEF Stat Artifacts

Genshin - Albedo - DEF Artifacts

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!
