He's one of the most mysterious characters in the game, but he's also a powerful Geo sword user worth adding to a team.

Albedo is a Geo character in Genshin Impact, and he's also one of the most mysterious. It's known that he's connected to the alchemist Rhinedottir, who had something to do with the Cataclysm. Additionally, Albedo is a synthetic creation made from a piece of chalk by that alchemist.

Whether or not he's set to play an even larger role in the game's story is unknown, but for now, Albedo is a playable character that can make a great addition to a player's team. To level him up, ascend him, and upgrade his talents, he'll require the following items and Mora.

Leveling Materials

Synthetic human or otherwise, Albedo's going to need the following amounts of EXP and Mora between each ascension level like any other character:

Level EXP Mora
1-20 120,175 24,200
20-40 578,325 115,800
40-50 579,100 116,000
50-60 854,125 171,000
60-70 1,195,925 239,200
70-80 1,611,875 322,400
80-90 (max) 3,423,125 684,800
Totals: 8,362,650 EXP 1,673,400 Mora

Additionally, like any other character, Albedo needs a total of over 8 million EXP to reach level 90. Here's one combination of EXP materials to get him there:

Item Total
Wanderer's Advice 12
Adventurer's Experience 11
Hero's Wit 415

Albedo Ascension Items

He's made of chalk, and he fittingly holds a Geo Vision. That means Albedo needs some Prithiva Topaz for his ascension — the elemental stone for all Geo characters. Here's everything needed to ascend Albedo at each level, as well as the totals:

Level Gems Enemy Drops Boss Drops Specialty Mora
20 1x Prithiva Topaz Sliver 3x Divining Scroll - 3x Cecilia 20,000
40 3x Prithiva Topaz Fragment 15x Divining Scroll 2x Basalt Pillar 10x Cecilia 40,000

  • 6x Topaz Gemstone
  • 18x Divining
  • 30x Sealed
  • 36x Forbidden Curse
46 168 420,000

Gemstones - Where to Find Prithiva Topaz

Like any other elemental gemstone, Prithiva Topaz can be purchased from Liyue's and Mondstadt's souvenir shops or earned by completing all four daily commissions for the Adventurers' Guild. However, much of it will come from defeating the bosses that can drop it, which include the following:

  • Azhdaha
  • Andrius
  • Geo Hypostasis
  • Golden Wolflord
  • Primo Geovishap
  • Perpetual Mechanical Array
  • Ruin Serpent

Enemy Drop - Where to Find Samachurl Scrolls

Samachurls are those shaman-like monsters often seen alongside standard Hilichurls. They are capable of dropping these Scrolls when defeated, which they seemingly use to channel their powers.

Higher-level Samachurls can drop better Scrolls, as follows:

  • Any level: Divining Scroll
  • Level 40+: Sealed Scroll
  • Level 60+: Forbidden Curse Scroll

Boss Drop - How to Get Basalt Pillars

The unique boss drop that Albedo uses is the Basalt Pillar. He'll need quite a few of them, meaning players who want to level him up will need to take on the Geo Hypostasis quite a few times. Defeating this boss is the only way to get Basalt Pillars.

The Geo Hypostasis can be found on an island west of the teleport waypoint on the Guyun Stone Forest in Liyue.

Local Specialty - Where to Find Cecilias

These nice white flowers that Albedo uses to ascend are a specialty of the Mondstadt region that he calls his current home. He and Venti are currently the only characters that use them.

Cecilias can be found growing naturally in only one place: Starsnatch Cliff.

However, they can also be grown in a Serenitea Pot or purchased from Flora. She stocks five at a time, selling them for 1,000 Mora each. She'll restock them every three days.

Albedo Talent Materials

Albedo's talents will make him even more powerful. Here's what's needed to do just that, per talent (plus totals at the bottom):

Level Books Common Drops Trounce Mats Crown of Insight Mora
1-2 3x Teachings of Ballad 6x Divining Scroll - - 12,500
2-3 2x Guide to Ballad 3x Sealed Scroll - - 17,500

  • 93x Forbidden Curse
18 3 4,957,500

Talent Books - Ballad

The talent books that Albedo uses are those of the Ballad series. These can typically be found by clearing the Forsaken Rift domain on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Trounce Materials and Crowns of Insight

A Crown of Insight is needed to bring any character's talents from level 9 to level 10, and they're pretty hard to come by. There are two ways to earn them: participate in special events and make offerings to the Sacred Sakura and Frostbearing Tree.

As for his trounce material, Albedo will require another trip down to Liyue. He uses the Tusk of Monoceros Caeli, which is a drop from Childe/Tartaglia's trounce fight.

Genshin Impact is available on PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile devices, with a Nintendo Switch version in development.
