Returning to Genshin Impact in the first Character Event Banner of 2.3, 5-Star Geo Sword-user Albedo brings players Geo support and sub-DPS capabilities. He will be appearing in the upcoming event “Shadows Amidst Snowstorms,” where he plays a large role in the Traveler’s investigation of Dragonspine. For players either looking to pull for Albedo or who have already successfully obtained him, his Elemental Skills may be tricky to understand at first glance.
Albedo’s Elemental Burst, Rite of Progeniture: Tectonic Tide, is fairly straightforward. Much like other Genshin Impact character Bursts, it is his hardest-hitting skill. Tectonic Tide deals massive AoE Geo DMG through powerful Geo crystals that surge forth on his command. If a Solar Isotoma exists at the time of his Burst, Albedo is able to deal up to seven additional Geo attacks following the first big hit.
As Mondstadt\’s Chief Alchemist, Albedo’s Elemental Skill, Abiogenesis: Solar Isotoma, uses the power of alchemy to create a Solar Isotoma that deals Geo DMG upon arrival. As enemies within this field are struck, Transient Blossoms will form to deal additional Geo DMG. Many players use this function to set his Burst for success, though it has an additional feature that is often overlooked. When characters step onto the center of the Solar Isotoma, a Geo Construct that functions as a rising platform is created.
Genshin Impact: Albedo’s Versatile Geo Solar Isotoma
Apart from the previously mentioned standard skill usage, Albedo’s rising Solar Isotoma platform can be utilized in different ways. For example, in situations where there is a large opponent surrounded by smaller enemies, it can be hard to navigate priorities when players are swarmed from all sides. Albedo’s rising Geo Construct provides a vantage point for Bow-users in Genshin Impact, which allows them to focus on the main target and keeps them safe from interruption. This platform can also provide a lift for characters who have great Plunge DMG, such as hard-hitting Claymore users.
Albedo’s Elemental Skill can also aid in the exploration and navigation of tricky terrain. When hunting for Anemoculus in Genshin Impact, there may be some resting just out of reach. Whereas some players may climb high places and attempt to glide toward their goal, Albedo can simply lift players toward the Anemoculus in a single step. Additionally, this skill can be used to reach the tops of houses or structures where needed resources such as Bird Eggs and Crystalflies may be.
As Co-Op is a popular feature in Genshin Impact, many players often join or host their own world to explore with other Adventurers. The rising “Elevator” makes for a fun activity for players to pass time as they wait for teammates to load in or prepare for Genshin Impact’s Bosses and other challenges. Similar to Zhongli’s climbable Stone Stele or Venti’s Wind Domain, Albedo’s Solar Isotoma allows engaging player interaction. As Albedo is added to more and more individual Character Archives, Genshin Impact players should take advantage of everything the Geo sword-user has to offer.
