Amber is a four-star Pyro Bow user in Genshin Impact. She is literally the primary playable character you meet in the game is usually considered to be weak. Anyway, this is a misconception, as all characters in Genshin are strong when built right. In this page, we are doing to showcase a full guide for Amber Genshin impact, including gameplay, profile and best builds.


Amber’s birthday is on 10 August, but birthdays don’t have any bearing on war prowess in the game.  Character birthday just mean that you will get mail from the birthday girl/boy containing their special dish and a gift according to their level or talents.


Amber is an Outrider of the Knights of Favonius. She is friendly, cheerful, and forever ready to help the citizens of Mondstadt. Additional, Amber is no issue talking to strangers as if they are already acquaintances – that is probably why she approached the user character first.

Amber has a dark brown, long hair, fair skin, and gold eyes. Her outfit, five Star Outrider, is a uniform made for highest mobility. Amber most distinguishing feature is her headband with the big red bow that rests on her head, similar to the bunny eyes.

Amber Genshin Impact Capabilities

As Amber is one of the earliest characters made and is free to obtain, she is rather underpowered. You need C4 for complete damage potential and C6 to get her to A-tier support. Overall, Amber is super simple to play, being a ranged character with quite simple expertise and a taunt for tanking. New player would have no issue using her.

  • Normal attack: Sharpshooter
  • Normal attach: Perform up to five consecutive shots with a bow
  • Charged attack: Aim and charge a shot to deal extra damage, Flame accumulates on the arrowhead while channeling, making a completely charged flaming arrow deals Pyro DMG.
  • Plunging attack: Fires of a storm of arrows before landing
  • Element Skill: Explosive Puppet

Summon is puppet named Baron Bunny that that is close to Amber. It continually taunts nearby explodes and enemies when destroyed or expired. Baron Bunny HP is based on Amber Max HP.

You can grip the expertise to adjust the throwing direction. The throw range rises the longer you grip the button.

  • Elemental Burst: Fiery rain

Ambers burst is quite simple – she fires off a shower of narrows thetas continuously deals AoE Pyro DMG.

Best weapon

Amber is an archer, and the top bow to make the most of her expertise is undoubtedly the Skyward Harp. Hits with this bow provides increased critical damage, as well as top chance of inflicting AoE damage with every hit, which goes a long way to making up for Ambers comparative weakness in other combat areas. Additional, Amber is one of just 3 bow-users in the game who can proc the Skyward Harps passive effects with the use of her Element Skill as well as with her general attacks, which powerfully points towards this weapon being designed at least partially with her in mind.

Anyway, the Skyward Harp is a five star weapon, meaning that it is not forever a desirable or realistic choice for fans targeting on putting together a free-to-play party, or those building Amber as a support character. For a more attainable four-star alternative, there are arguments to be made for either the Favonius Warbow or Sacrificial Bow thanks to their element Cooldown reductions, but I favor the Prototype Crescent. After landing a charged attack hit on an enemy’s weak point with this weapon, Amber will enjoy ten percent increased movement speed and a 36 percent boost to ATK power for ten seconds you generally find yourself switching to Amber as a utility fighter for big enemies like the Ruin Guard who are top tackled by a ranged character capable of weaving and ducking, this weapon is a perfect choice.

Amber is a fire or pyro character accessible in Genshin impact. She is the first playable character your encounter when you begin the game and joins your party soon afterward. This 4 star character is not the most famous in the Genshin impact community, but she is free and is a best option for conditions when you need long-range or fire attacks.

Other playable 4 star Pyro characters in the game include:

  • Xinyan
  • Bennett
  • Xiangling
  • Yanfei

Party composition

  • DPS: Kaeya
  • Sub-DPS: Xingqiu
  • Sub-DPS: Amber
  • Healer/support: Bennett

Five-star alternative: Mona changing Xingqju as sub-DPS

Amber makes a powerful sub-DPS for her fellow starter character Kaeya, thanks to their respective elements of Cyro and Pyro reacting combine for the strong Melt damage-dealing reaction. Ideally, Amber should be the one to attack second and trigger Melt, since having the Pyro character active it delivers a powerful version of effect: while Kaeya, as a sword-wielder and full the powerful fighter of the 2 should be your active character to deliver follow-up attacks while Melt is Active.

Including a second Sub-DPS with the Hydro element to the team opens up for another pair of devastating nasty reactions: Vaporize (Hydro + Pyro) and Freeze (Hydro + Cyro). Freeze fully immobilises enemies for the duration of the effect, while Vaporizes works less or more the same as Melt. Xingqui is one of the top sub-DPS characters in the game and quite simple to get from early on thanks to his four star rarity, making him a perfect choice for his role, though if you are lucky enough to pull Mona, it is value considering using her instead for this set-up, since her Elemental burst expertise features a costly Hydro AoE that particularly complements Ambers ranged Pyro capabilities.
