Cinnabar Spindle Is The Best Weapon Choice

Because of the lack of a 5-star DEF-scaling sword or a weapon with sub-stats that benefit Albedo, the best weapon he can have right now is the Cinnabar Spindle. Unfortunately, it's an event-only weapon and if you didn't get it, there's no current way to get it right now.

Husk Of Opulent Dreams Can Be Better At C2

Constellation 2 gives significant DMG buff to the Elemental Burst of Albedo allowing him to produce additional damage that scales on DEF. This cannot be boosted by Golden Troupe so it is better to choose Husk Set for more damage on Elemental Burst.

Strengths & Weakness Of Albedo

- An excellent support & off-field Geo damager
- His Elemental Skill can produce shield shards when triggering Crystalize reaction
- Can fit in any team comp
- His damage is situational
Cinnabar Spindle is currently the best weapon for him but if you were not able to get it, there's unfortunately no other weapon with a DEF sub-stat
- The lifting platform could disrupt the team combo & rotation, especially melee characters

I started to doubt the tier list from this website.

Hey the owner of this site, Have you tried Albedo + Wolf fang sword + Golden Troupe 4set/Husk 4 set ??

Are you sure the best sword for Albedo just Cinnabar?

Anonymous 6

what about travelers handy sword?

Anonymous 5

With or without CS? Since his BiS weapon, probably responsible for the dmg, is no longer available, such statements are meaningless for new players. I only read praising words from players who own this weapon. But hey i can use HoD, it's not quite as great as CS, but who needs meta without endgame
