With the upcoming release of update 2.3, we’ll be seeing Albedo’s banner rerun and some new characters added to the mix. Since there’s a chance for some of you to get Albedo for the first time, let’s have a little refresher on his abilities and the best sets to ensure you get the best out of his character.

But before getting into that, if you’re looking for a place to get your Genesis Crystals, you can try out OffGamers right here! You’ll probably need it if you run out of luck on Albedo or Eula’s banner.

Character Background & Banner Info​

As the Chief Alchemist and Captain of the Investigation Team for the Knights of Favonius, Albedo is a quiet and curious character that likes to keep to himself and get lost in his work. He’s primarily a Geo character that wields a sword in the game.

There are not many Geo characters in the game, let alone powerful ones, but Albedo can be a handful if you build him up with the best-curated items and weapons. His banner rerun will come after Eula’s banner rerun with update 2.3. It is also rumoured that Bennett, Rosaria and Noelle will be joining them in the banners.

This double banner system ensures that if you don’t get one five-star character, your chances will be brought forward for the next banner so you won’t be starting from scratch and will be able to get a five-star character eventually throughout the event.

Best Artifact Recommendations​

Archaic Petra​

The best artifact for Albedo would be the 2-piece Archaic Petra as it allows him to gain a 15% Geo DMG bonus. When obtaining an Elemental Shard through a Crystallize reaction, party members would gain a 35% DMG bonus for 10s based on the element.

Tenacity of The Milileth​

When equipped with a 2-piece of the Tenacity of The Milileth, it adds 20% to your HP. When your Elemental Skill hits an enemy, your party members’ ATK increases by 20%, and shield strength increases by 30% for 3s. The effect can be triggered once every 0.5s even without the character on the field.

Noblesse Oblige​

Equipping this 2-piece set will allow your Elemental Burst DMG to increase by 20%. Using your Elemental Burst will increase your party members’ ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect is non stackable.

Defender’s Will​

This 2-piece set will increase your DEF by 30% and your Elemental RES by 30% for each element available in your party.

Best Team Recommendations​

Albedo is best suited for a support role or a sub DPS due to his long-lasting abilities and shields. If you’re looking for the best team you can pair with Albedo, you could use Ningguang, Hu Tao and Venti together. Ningguang and Hu Tao will act as the DPS and sub DPS as they have high DMG output and can easily take down enemies. Venti could act as support as he can herd enemies and lead them towards Albedo to lay down continuous Geo DMG.

For free to play players, if you happen to pull Albedo, you could use Xiangling, Kaeya and Noelle in your party. Xiangling and Noelle could work together as DPS and sub DPS as Xiangling can trigger elemental reactions with her pyro abilities and both of them are high damage dealers. Kaeya could help with Support as his Cryo compliments Xiangling’s Pyro to trigger Melt.

There you have it! A simple and easy to follow guide for Albedo in case you happen to pull him for the first time. Either way, you’re bound to have some fun with his unique character and if you’re aiming to build an all Geo party, he’s one that you would definitely want on the team. His AoE attacks are useful and his shields are great for support!
