Genshin Impact Aloy Guide: Ascension, Talent Materials, Best Weapons, Artifacts

Genshin Impact Aloy

Aloy is the first crossover character that is going to be added in Genshin Impact. In order to make the most of her at launch, you will need to level her up to the max and get the right weapons and artifacts. In this Genshin Impact guide, we are going to walk you through the materials that you need for Aloy as well as artifacts and weapons.

If you play the game on PS4 or PS5 then you will get Aloy when you log into the game once update 2.1 goes live. If you are on other platforms then you will have to wait until update 2.2.

Best Aloy Build

The following are the weapons and artifacts that we recommend for Aloy in Genshin Impact 2.1:

Best Weapons

The Predator Bow is Aloys weapon of choice. Unfortunately, you can only take full advantage of it if you are playing Genshin Impact on PS4 or PS5. If you are playing on other platforms then you will need to look into other options. 

We can also recommend the Hamayumi as it comes with attack% as the secondary stat. Prototype Crescent is a great bow for free-to-play players that has attack% as the secondary stat. It also has increased damage if you hit enemy weak spots but note that enemies like Slimes do not have weak spots.

Best Artifacts

For the artifacts, we recommend the new Shimenawa’s Resistance set. 2 pieces are going to increase attack by 18%. 4 pieces are going to increase normal, charged, and plunge attack damage by 50% for 10 seconds by trading in 15 energy. 

You can also go with the classic Blizzard Strayer set. 2 pieces are going to give you a 15% cryo damage bonus. 4 pieces are going to increase crit rate by 20% if the enemy being attacked is affected by cryo. If the enemy is frozen then the crit rate is increased by another 20%.
