Amber Build Guide (DPS and Support)

Amber Build Guide
Amber Build Guide

Amber is the very first character that player met in Genshin Impact. She wield a bow with pyro vision, but honestly she didn’t have “unique” role in your team. Her kit just plain bad, Mihoyo did her dirty.

She’s good for early game exploration, sniping enemy weakpoint from afar, lighting far torch, and breaking enemy shield especially in Dragonspine region.

If you plan to build Amber as DPS, you need to focus on her Charged Attack as main source of DMG. If you plan to build her as support, you will need to focus on her elemental burst since she can apply pyro pretty fast.

Overview

Amber have Precise Shot passive which will increase ATK by 15% after hitting enemy weakpoint.

With her elemental skill: Explosive Puppet, Amber will summon Baron Bunny (tap or hold) that continuously taunts enemy until it’s explode and deals AoE Pyro DMG. Baron Bunny HP scales with Amber Max HP, but since we won’t build HP for Amber, expect the puppet to explode in a few seconds.

Amber elemental burst: Fiery Rain will shoot rain of fire arrows that deals continuous AoE Pyro DMG. It’s have pretty low energy cost, and usefull for quick pyro application or destroying cryo shield of Dragonspine monsters.
