As we all know Aloy is the main protagonist of Horizon Forbidden West. Thanks to the crossover between Horizon Forbidden West and Genshin Impact, you can play as the badass Aloy in Tevyat. While there are some prerequisites to getting Aloy, you can pick her up from the Mailbox. Your Adventure Rank should be at least on level 20 or above. And you must have logged in to the game before patch 2.3 dropped to get Aloy. There are several players confused about choosing the best build for her. Not to worry, check out our guide to find out the best Aloy build in Genshin Impact.
Best Genshin Impact Aloy Build
You can use Aloy for both of the DPS roles in your team comp. You can choose her as a main DPS or sub-DPS. The recommended build for Aloy is as follows:
- Weapon: Pole Star
- Artifact: Blizzard Strayer (4-Piece), Gladiator’s Finale (4-Piece or 2-Piece)
Best Weapons for Aloy
The best weapon for Aloy is the Pole Star. But this can vary if you choose a different DPS role for Aloy. The Pole Star is best suited for a burst DPS Role. With this weapon, your Elemental Burst and Elemental skill damage are increased by 12%. You can stack the Ashen Nightstar with normal, charged, elemental bursts or elemental skill attacks. If you stack up 4 stacks of Ashen Nightstar, the ATK is increased by a massive 48%. Upon going further to 5 stacks of Ashen Nightstar, you can increase the ATK to an additional 98%.
If you are choosing Aloy for a Sub-DPS role, we suggest going for Thundering Pulse. It is an Inazuman bow that grants you Thunder Emblem. You can increase the normal attack damage by stacking the Thunder Emblem. If you maximize this stack-up to 5, your normal attack DMG can increase up to 24, 49, or 80%. While this buff lasts for 5 seconds, you can increase it to 10 seconds by casting the Elemental Skill.
Aside from these weapons, you can also go for other weapon alternatives for both the DPS roles.
Aloy Main DPS Role
Here are the alternative weapon options for the Main DPS role for Aloy:
- The Stringless
- King’s Squire
- Prototype Crescent
Now, here are the alternative weapon options for the Sub-DPS role:
- Sacrificial Bow
- Skyward Harp
Best Artifacts for Aloy
The four-piece Blizzard Strayer set and Gladiator’s Finale is the best choice for Aloy in Genshin Impact. Here are the following bonuses you get for both of these Artifacts:
- Blizzard Strayer 4-Piece Set: The Critical rate increases by 20% for the enemy affected by Cryo. You can also get an additional 20% Crit rate if your enemy is frozen.
- Gladiator’s Finale 4-Piece Set: Normal attack DMG increases by 35% when using a Sword, Claymore, or Polearm.
- Gladiator’s Finale 2-Piece Set: ATK increases by additional 18%
Alternatively, you can choose the Emblem of Severed Fate or Noblesse Oblige as artifacts for Aloy.
Talents & Skills to Focus
Being a five-star Cyro character, the elemental skill and elemental burst will cause the most damage as you use Aloy. If you are including her as the Main DPS, your priority should be to focus on her Normal Attacks, Elemental Skills, and Elemental Bursts respectively. On the other hand, if you are choosing Aloy for Sub-DPS, your main priority should be the Elemental Burst followed by the rest.
