Albedo Build Guide

Albedo is 5 star character, Geo element, and sword wielder that can support your party to deal higher damage. You can use Albedo as pure support or burst support/dps.


Albedo elemental skill: Abiogenesis – Solar Isotoma will deals AoE Geo DMG within Solar Isotoma zone and this skill will generate Transient Blossoms which deal AoE Geo DMG. The damage dealt by this skill scales off Albedo’s DEF.

Transient Blossoms can also function as lift for your character, making it easier to higher place to reach something or just lifting your character to safer place while dealing damage.

Albedo Elemental burst, Rite of Progeniture – Tectonic Tide will generate 7 Fatal Blossom within the field. The blossom will explode and deal AoE Geo DMG.

Here’s all recommended weapon and artifacts for Albedo:


Cinnabar Spindle is BiS for Albedo because it’s have DEF% stats and effect to increase Elemental Skill DMG which is main source of Albedo damage. Also, there’s no other sword user who can use this sword. It’s more like this sword crafted specifically for Albedo.

Go get it from event while it lasts.
