Dimensions of Albedo’s Elemental Skill AoE

Added: 12/28/2020 Submission By: HailCorporate#2970

Finding: Albedo's E AoE is cylindrical and has a maximum height just over the elevator's height.

Evidence: Linked video showcases different flower positions on a wall and confirming if Albedo's E will proc. Attached Screenshot shows relative distance from a shadow on the wall.

There was no point where it was possible to proc E underneath the flower versus on the outermost part of the AoE supporting that it is Cylindrical and not Spherical.

Significance: It is possible to place Albedo's flower in an elevated position to avoid it getting destroyed.

Further Testing: I've experienced placing Albedo's flower on top of Electro Hypostasis' summons during its death phase and it remained suspended after the summon was destroyed. This may be replicated in Albedo + Zhong teams with Zhong's pillar however I cannot test this as I do not own Zhong.

Albedo's Elemental Skill Snapshots

Finding: Albedo's elemental skill snapshots, meaning that damage for its entire duration is calculated when the skill is cast, so any buffs gained/lost after the skill is cast will not affect the skill's damage.

Evidence: https://youtu.be/BhfcSLmPW5s

Albedo's skill does not get affected by Ningguang's Jade Screen buff, since Albedo cast the skill before walking through the screen.

Signifiance: Will help improve rotations to deal more damage. In rotations, Albedo should only cast his skill after getting buffed.

Albedo's Fatal Blossoms Snapshots when his E is cast, not his Q

By: gtrain#9987 Added: 08/13/2021 Discussion

Finding: Albedo's Fatal Blossom damage is based on stats snapshotted when his E is cast, not at the time of Q cast

Evidence: E without snapshotting Bennett Q: Imgur Fatal blossom damage (noncrit): 88 E with snapshotting Bennett Q: Imgur Fatal blossom damage (noncrit): 503

Stats remain constant in each scenario. Only difference is order of bennett Q and albedo E. Fatal blossoms in first clip deal 88 damage, while in the second they are 503. Specific Attack Calcs: Google Sheet

This is similar to Ningguang's Q, where the gems from the screen have their stats taken from the E's Screen.

Signifiance: To maximize Albedo Q damage, E should snapshot any attack buffs, as otherwise the fatal blossoms will not gain damage. Also shows why in my testing, fatal blossoms do not gain mistsplitter stacks.
