Solar Isotoma

Genshin Impact - Solar Isotoma
Albedo's Elemental Skill creates a flower like Geo construct called a Solar Isotoma dealing Geo DMG and forming large AoE. This construct can either lift characters in to the air and act a a platform or it will bloom and deal Geo Damage to enemies attacked within the effect area.

Boosting Elemental Mastery

Genshin Impact - Albedo Burst
After using Albedo's Elemental Burst, all characters in your party will automatically receive a 125 Elemental Mastery bonus for a few seconds.

Elemental Burst has a low cooldown and energy requirement.

The energy required for Albedo's Elemental Burst only costs 40 and it is paired with an extremely short cooldown. Use this whenever possible before switching out to your main DPS for additional damage.

Character Thoughts on Albedo

Genshin Impact - Mona ImageMona Coming Soon
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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - Sucrose ImageSucrose 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? Let's hypothesize that he and I were to perform the same research - I'd still spend my whole life playing catch up. But, my studying 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 - Diona ImageDiona Alchemy genius? Hmm… I wonde rif he knows a way to finally help me make a drink that people don’t like?
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa Coming Soon
Genshin Impact - Xingqiu ImageXingqiu I've thought of all the illustrations I want for each major event in the next three volumes! I should write my thoughts down before I forget the, and send them to Mr. Kreideprinze...
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean Sometimes I feel that terms like "genius" were originally created for Albedo.

Another weakness that he has is that he is the only character who cannot generate elemental particles using his elemental skill (aside from characters like Barbara and Qiqi whose skills do not ever generate particles) against enemies who are immune to damage.
