Best Amber Build in Genshin Impact

Amber is one of the free starter characters you get in Genshin Impact. Perhaps because she’s a freebie, a lot of players tend to overlook her potential. The fire elemental archer and outrider of the Knights of Favonious can certainly pack a punch, though. You can build Amber in various ways, so we’ll provide you with some options. Here’s our version of the best Amber build in Genshin Impact.

Amber relies on both elemental fire damage and physical damage. How you choose to build her is up to you and your team composition. Support Ambers may want to emphasize ability spamming, whereas DPS Ambers wish to focus on attack damage.

Here are the best weapons, artifacts, and stats to focus on with Amber:

  • Weapon: Compound Bow, Stringless, Slingshot
  • Stats: ATK%, ATK, Pyro Damage
  • Artifacts: Berserker, The Exile, Noblesse Oblige

Best Amber Weapon

Here are some excellent weapon choices for Amber:

Compound Bow is an option with Amber, offering base ATK and Physical Damage Bonus. The Infusion Arrow passive makes normal attacks and aimed shots to increase ATK by 4% and ATK speed by 1.2% for 6 seconds. The effect can stack up to four times and occur once every 0.3 seconds.

The Stringless offers base ATK and Elemental Mastery stats. Arrowless Song provides a 24% increase in Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst damage. 

Slingshot is another popular choice to equip on Amber. Base stats include ATK and CRIT rate, with the Slingshot passive, regular attacks, and aimed shot hits increase damage by 60% if they hit within 0.3 seconds, or 10% otherwise.

Best Amber Stats

The main stat you should focus on with Amber is ATK%, with the option for CRIT% on your helmet slot and Pyro Damage on your goblet. Secondary stats to focus on are CRIT%, CRIT DMG, and ATK or Elemental Recharge, depending on your build. 

Another option is stacking some Elemental Mastery, in which case you’d want to run an Artifact set like Instructor. Experiment with a few different builds and see what you enjoy playing most.

Best Amber Artifacts

Here are some good options for Amber’s artifacts:

Artifact SetTwo-pieceFour-piece
BerserkerCRIT Rate +12%When HP is below 70%, CRIT Rate increases by an additional 24%.
The ExileEnergy Recharge +20%Using an Elemental Burst regenerates 2 energy for other party members every 2 seconds for 6 seconds. Does not stack.
Noblesse ObligeElemental Burst DMG +20%Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members’ ATK by 20% for 12 seconds. Does not stack.

You can start running Berserker on Amber as soon as level 20. It’s a good starter set for pretty much any character in Genshin Impact. When you start getting into the higher levels approaching 30 and 40, you can focus on running The Exile and Noblesse Oblige. We recommend the latter if you’re going for a more DPS oriented build, and the former with support.
