Best Build for Amber in Genshin ImpactPair Amber with the Skyward Harp weapon and Noblesse Oblige artifact set to use her as a decent Pyro support character. This is a great setup to increase her Crit damage as well as her Elemental Burst damage, allowing her to spread Pyro around while controlling enemies with her Skill. Her Burst can also then be effective to take down shields.

Best Party Members to match Amber with in Genshin Impact
Premium (Gacha) TeamIn Genshin Impact Amber should be used as a way to inflict elemental combos and as support. If you pair her with Chongyun, you can use his Elemental Skill to inflict Melt on enemies, causing extra damage. Fischl can use Oz to cause the Overcharge combo to create a lot of damage and stays on the field even when switching to a different character. Bennett will act as a healer and support with his attack buff from his Burst. Pairing the two Pyros will also give you a boost in Resonance.
F2P TeamWhile it’s not the best option, if you were hard-pressed, you could use Amber as a means to set up combos and act as a sub-DPS, but Xiangling will be the main damage dealer in this party. Not only will you have a bunch of Pyro about, but your Resonance will be better for it. Kaeya can swap in to provide Melt reactions, and Barbara should be able to handle heals and create Vaporize reactions from your Pyro pals.
