What’s the best Genshin Amber build?

Many players underestimate Amber, considering a starter character who isn’t much use outside of her visual appeal and story relevance. However, she certainly has her uses beyond that, and, with a little TLC, can provide some great damage an utility.

Her kit appears quite simple, but playing her well relies on quick reflexes and long-term thinking. She’s capable of amazing single-target damage, has great range and plenty of on-field mobility, and is flexible when it comes to team compositions, builds, and roles.

She does lack AoE damage, and some of her main utility and quality of life upgrades are locked behind constellations, which are tricky to get considering she doesn’t get featured on banners often. Her gameplay also requires some practice and knowledge of her kit. For the latter, we recommend checking out some combo and rotation videos on YouTube, or keeping an eye on the r/AmberMains subreddit.

What’s the best Genshin Amber weapon?

The best weapon for Amber depends on the team comp you’re pairing her with. In general, Amos Bow is a great choice due to its significant damage increase. Elegy for the End is great for a more support or reaction-focused build due to its high energy recharge and the elemental mastery it provides through its skill.

When it comes to four-star options, Stringless is a great option for buffing her elemental mastery for reactions, and her skill and burst damage. Prototype Crescent is also a decent back up option if you’re struggling to pull the others, offering a nice attack buff, though its skill can be tricky to activate.

Weapon Effect
Amos’ Bow Base stat: attack
Skill: increases normal attack and charged attack damage by 12%. After firing a normal or charged attack, damage dealt increases by a further 8% every 0.1 seconds the arrow is in the air, for up to five times
Elegy for the End Base stat: energy recharge
Skill: increases elemental mastery by 60. When the wielder’s elemental skill or burst hits opponents, they gain a Sigil of Remembrance. They can trigger this effect once every 0.2 seconds, even if they’re not on the field. When they possess four sigils, all of them are consumed and all nearby party members gain the ‘Millennial Movement: Farewell Song’ effect for 12 seconds, increasing their elemental mastery by 100 and their attack by 20%. Once this effect triggers, you can’t gain any more sigils for 20 seconds. Buffs of the same type don’t stack
Stringless Base stat: elemental mastery 
Skill: increases elemental skill and elemental burst damage by 24%
Prototype Crescent Base stat: attack
Skill: charged attack hits on weak points increase movement speed by 10% and attack by 36% for ten seconds

What are the best Genshin Amber artifacts?

Noblesse Oblige is a strong option for Amber, offering a nice boost to her burst damage and a strong team-wide buff.

However, if you already have a character holding a four-piece set of Nobless Oblige, you can go with Wanderer’s Troupe to increase the damage of her elemental reactions and charged attacks, or Crimson Witch of Flames to boost her pyro damage.

Artifact set Effect
Noblesse Oblige Two equipped: elemental burst damage is increased by 20%
Four equipped: using an elemental burst increases all party members’ attack by 20% for 12 seconds
Crimson Witch of Flames Two equipped: pyro damage increases by 15%
Four equipped: increases overload and burning damage by 40%. Increases vaporize and melt damage by 15%. Elemental skills increase the two-piece set effect by 50% for ten seconds
Wanderer’s Troupe Two equipped: elemental mastery +80
Four equipped: increases charged attack damage by 35%
