Aalto Overview (1.0.21)

Aalto, an enigmatic Information Broker, is renowned for his elusive demeanor and inviting smile. It is said that he can provide any information, as long as the price is right. Recognizing his exceptional skills in gathering intelligence, Aalto was invited to join the enigmatic organization known as the Black Shores, which operates from a secluded island.

Both Aalto and Encore now serve as Consultants for the Black Shores, forming an inseparable and lively duo during their missions. Despite his initially timid nature, Aalto’s true character shines through as a dependable and attentive individual.

Aalto Review (1.0.21)

Aalto is a 4-Star Aero character in Wuthering Waves.

A DPS character that relies on continuously using Basic Attack and Resonance Skill, with high survivability due to the presence of clones.

After using Basic Attack and Resonance Skill to generate Mist, aerial attacks are typically used to quickly acquire Forte Circuit Energy.

Additionally, due to the fast movement speed in stealth mode, the Open World experience is decent.

Pros

  • High survivability and a good experience in Open World.

Cons

  • In high-pressure environments, constantly adjusting positions can make it difficult to quickly accumulate Forte Circuit Energy, affecting damage output efficiency.
  • Aalto’s skill set deals decent damage to single targets but lacks AoE capabilities. Burst potential is also lacking.

Aalto Team Comp (1.0.21)

Aalto Premium Best Team

Sub DPS

The main damage type of Jiyan is Heavy Attack Damage. Morfeti’s Outro Skill provides Heavy Attack DMG Deepen, making Morfeti the best teammate for Jiyan. Additionally, Morfeti has off-field coordinated attacks, offering substantial output compared to other Sub DPS options.

Aalto provides Aero DMG Deepen, making Aalto a good Sub DPS in this team comp. However, Aalto’s energy insufficiency can affect the team’s overall damage output.

Healer

Verina’s healing abilities and Concerto Energy acquisition abilities are both greater than Baizhi’s, making her the preferred healer character. Verina’s Inherent Skill provides a one-time death immunity effect. Baizhi also has a similar effect that is even better, but it requires unlocking at Sequence 5.

Verina’s healing amount is based on her ATK, so Verina has a certain degree of damage output. If you build it well, her damage should not be underestimated.

Verina’s Inherent Skill can provide a 20% attack buff to the entire team, while Baizhi can only provide a 15% attack buff to a single character.

More Build Guides

Yinlin

An Electro damage character with both support and DPS capabilities, Yinlin excels due to the ‘Punishment Mark’ damage type of her Forte Circuit, which is classified as Resonance Skill damage. In the context of the team’s rotation, Resonance Skill damage comprises approximately 50% of Yinlin’s total damage output. Her true value, however, lies not in the off-field coordinated ‘Punishment Mark’ damage, but rather in her effective Concerto Energy generation and the unique buff provided by her Outro Skill in the current version.

Jiyan

An Aero Damage DPS character, this hero relies on the Intro Skill to activate. Once the Resonance Liberation ultimate is initiated, Heavy Attacks contribute to approximately 90% of the total damage. Activating Resonance Liberation changes the attack mode, offering a larger attack range and the ability to suppress lightweight enemies.

The high attack frequency of the Lance of Qingloong allows for the quick activation of stacking Inherent Skills and Weapon Effects. When paired with Morfeti, it can deal exceptionally high total damage against multiple enemies.

Jianxin

Jianxin possesses comprehensive support abilities, providing shields, healing, and pulling enemies together. The range and intensity of the pull are currently the best in this version, although not yet excellent.

The Resonance Skill functions as a damage-immune defensive counter, making it very suitable for novice players who are unfamiliar with action games to tackle high-difficulty dungeons.

While Jianxin does have damage output capabilities, the multipliers are very low and it lacks burst methods.
