Aloy is a crossover character from Horizon Zero Dawn, who was added to Genshin Impact as part of the version 2.1 update. She is a Cryo archer who excels at dealing ranged damage to enemies. In this guide, we’ll take a closer look at Aloy’s abilities, constellations, and best builds to help you maximize her potential.
Abilities of Aloy
Aloy’s Elemental Skill, Frozen Wilds, allows her to fire an arrow that deals Cryo damage to enemies and creates a Cryo explosion on impact. Her Elemental Burst, Prophecies of Dawn, creates an area of Cryo damage around her that lasts for 12 seconds, dealing damage to enemies and healing nearby party members.
Aloy’s Normal and Charged Attacks are also crucial to her playstyle. Her Normal Attack fires up to 5 arrows in rapid succession, dealing Cryo damage to enemies. Her Charged Attack fires a more powerful arrow that deals increased damage.
Constellations of Aloy
Aloy’s constellations can enhance her abilities and provide her with additional effects in combat. Her first constellation, Combat Override, increases her Normal Attack DMG by 16% after using her Elemental Skill. Her second constellation, Strong Strike, increases the level of her Elemental Burst by 3, making it more powerful.
The third constellation, Efficient Armor, reduces the Stamina consumption of Aloy’s Charged Attack by 50% when her HP is below 50%. The fourth constellation, Blizzard Slayer, increases the duration of her Elemental Skill by 3 seconds and increases the CRIT Rate of her Normal Attack by 10% for 6 seconds after using her Elemental Burst.
The fifth constellation, Supreme Wilds, provides Aloy with a 50% chance to refund a portion of the Elemental Burst’s Energy cost when it deals a CRIT Hit. Finally, her sixth constellation, Easy Prey, increases the level of her Normal Attack by 3, making her Normal Attacks even more powerful.
Builds of Aloy
Aloy’s primary stat is ATK, which increases the damage of her Normal and Charged Attacks. Players can also invest in her Crit Rate and Crit DMG, which increase the chance and damage of critical hits.
For weapons, Aloy is best suited for the Rust or the Amos’ Bow. The Rust increases her Normal Attack DMG and provides a boost to her ATK, while the Amos’ Bow provides a boost to her Charged Attack DMG and increases her ATK.
In terms of artifacts, players can use the Blizzard Strayer set for increased Cryo damage, or the Wanderer’s Troupe set for increased Normal Attack DMG.
Playstyle of Aloy
Aloy is best used as a ranged damage dealer, providing valuable Cryo damage to the party. Her Frozen Wilds ability allows her to deal Cryo damage to enemies and create a Cryo explosion on impact, making her especially effective against groups of enemies. Her Prophecies of Dawn Elemental Burst creates an area of Cryo damage around her, providing additional damage to enemies and healing for nearby party members.
Aloy’s Normal and Charged Attacks are also effective at dealing damage from a distance, allowing her to keep enemies at bay. Players should aim to utilize her abilities in combination with her Normal and Charged Attacks to deal the most damage possible.
Aloy is a powerful Cryo archer in Genshin Impact, known for her ranged damage and healing capabilities. With the right constellations, talents, and builds, she can be a valuable addition to any team.
