Genshin Impact Amber Build Guide - Everything You Need to Know

The last Outrider of the Knights of Favonius, Amber is a cheerful girl that we met early in the story and always helps the citizens of Mondstadt. On the battlefield, she’s a Pyro Support unit that uses ranged attacks, and so far the only Pyro bow user, making her an interesting addition for your team.

Amber is obtainable by spending wishes in the Wanderlust Invocation standard banner or through the main story, after the quest Winds of The Past. Good luck obtaining her!

Character Overview, Skills, and Talents

Example Builds for Amber

Support Build
Weapon - Favonius Warbow or The Stringless
Both weapons 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.

Artifacts - Noblesse Oblige (4 Pieces) or Crimson Witch of Flames/Wanderer's Troupe (2 Pieces)
These Artifact setups will depend on what you want to rely on more, Pyro Damage and its related reactions or Elemental Mastery and Burst damage.
