Aloy from the open-world action game Horizon Zero Dawn, is the first collaboration character featured in Genshin Impact, and players will soon want to know which builds are best for her. She is a free five-star character all players can obtain. Gamers who own a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 can acquire Aloy by logging into Genshin Impact. For players who do not own the consoles, Aloy will be a redeemable character during the Version 2.2 update. For players looking to utilize Aloy in battle, here are the best Artifacts and weapons for her.
Aloy is a Cryo character in Genshin Impact who wields a bow in battle. Her focus on Normal and Elemental attacks makes her a great candidate for a DPS build. If players are looking for a reliable Cryo damage dealer in the game, then Aloy may be a great option.
Aloy can infuse Cryo to enemies with her Talents, which allows her to easily trigger Elemental Reactions like Superconduct, Melt, and Freeze. As the primary DPS within the team, players should focus on increasing Aloy\’s ATK and Cryo stats in order to raise her overall damage. Equipping the right offensive weapons and Artifacts will be important in maximizing Aloy\’s Talents in battle.
Genshin Impact: Aloy\’s Best Weapons & Artifacts Explained
Aloy is comparable to Ganyu in Genshin Impact, which means the best Artifacts for her as a Cryo-focused damage dealer are the Blizzard Strayer set. Equipping two pieces will increase Aloy\’s Cryo damage by 15% while equipping the four-piece Blizzard Strayer set will increase her CRIT rate by 20% when attacking enemies affected by Cryo. Her CRIT rate will further increase by another 20% when enemies are frozen. If consistently infusing opponents with Cryo is a struggle, then players can equip either the 2-piece Gladiator\’s Finale or Shimenawa\’s Reminiscence set instead, which increases Aloy\’s ATK by 18%.
Those playing on PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 can receive Aloy\’s exclusive Predator bow in Genshin Impact. The weapon will increase her Normal and Charged attack damage by 10% when dealing Cryo damage to enemies. For those on other platforms, one of the best bows for Aloy is the Amos\’ Bow, which increases Normal and Charged attack damage by 12%. After a Normal or Charged attack is fired, the damage is further increased by 8% every 0.1 seconds the arrow is in the air. Another great weapon for Aloy is the Skyward Harp which increases her CRIT rate by 22.1% and CRIT damage by 20%.
For players who don\’t have the 5-star bows, good alternative 4-star weapons in Genshin Impact for Aloy are the Rust and Blackcliff Bow. The Rust increases Normal attack damage by 40% at the cost of reducing Charged attack damage by 10%, while the Blackcliff Bow increases Aloy\’s CRIT damage by 36.8%. It is also important that players increase Aloy\’s CRIT rate in order to consistently deal high damage to enemies. As a free 5-star character in the game, Aloy can be a strong DPS ally for players to use in battle.
