If you want Albedo to be in a Support role, just use the Tenacity of the Millelith artifact set which allows him to increase the party's ATK. Keep in mind that Albedo won't benefit much from the ATK buff as his talents don't benefit well from ATK.

Albedo's Talent Priority

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

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.

Best Constellations Rating and Explanation

Rating Constellation Effect / Merits
C2 ★★☆ • Elemental Burst will scale from DEF, increasing Albedo's DPS.

C2 Increases Burst DMG with DEF

C2 increases your Elemental Burst the more DEF you have. This also makes DEF% more desirable for Albedo than split chasing for ATK.

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!

Refund Weapon Crafting Materials

Genshin - Albedo - Skill

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.

Thoughts About Albedo

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Amber ImageAmber 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 - Diona ImageDiona Alchemy genius? Hmm... I wonder if he knows of a way to finally help me make a drink that people don't like?
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean Sometimes I feel that terms like "genius" were originally created for Albedo.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya 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?
Genshin Impact - Klee ImageKlee 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.
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa 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.
Genshin Impact - Mona ImageMona 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...
Genshin Impact - Rosaria ImageRosaria 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.
Genshin Impact - Sucrose ImageSucrose 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.
Genshin Impact - Venti ImageVenti 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!
Genshin Impact - Xingqiu ImageXingqiu 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...

Albedo's Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Barbara ImageBarbara About Barbara
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.
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean About Jean
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.
Genshin Impact - Klee ImageKlee About Klee
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.
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa About Lisa
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.
Genshin Impact - Sucrose ImageSucrose About Sucrose
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.
Genshin Impact - Xingqiu ImageXingqiu About Xingqiu
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?
