What Are the Best Amber Builds?
While Amber is more a unit that helps in exploration, you can also make her a decent Sub Pyro DPS since her Elemental Skill and Burst have the potential of hitting hard, trigger Pyro-related Reactions, and also help deviating aggro, making her a great asset in a team.

|Pyro Support Build||The Stringless||Favonius Warbow||Noblesse Oblige||Wanderer's Troupe|
Pyro Support Build
For this build both the Favonius Warbow or The Stringless serve really well with Amber, there isn’t a real change and your choice will depend only on which one you get first, or if you want elemental damage to prevail over energy recharge.
The distinction between the Artifact sets Noblesse Oblige, Crimson Witch of Flames, and Wanderer's Troupe will depend on whether you want to rely on Pyro Damage and its related reactions or Elemental Mastery and Burst damage.
Pyro Sub DPS
On the weapons side, this build needs hard-hitting weapons such as the Skyward Harp, or the Compound Bow if you can't afford a weapon that rare.
The artifacts you want are a combination of 2 pieces of Gladiator's Finale with Crimson Witch of Flames, which will provide the necessary Attack and Pyro damage bonus.
What Are the Best Team Comps for Amber?
