Genshin Impact’s 2.0 livestream gave us our first look at several characters, including Kujou Sara – or just Sara for short. We know that she serves Raiden Shogun – also known as the God of Eternity, and Baal – as an aide and bodyguard.
With our Genshin Impact Sara guide, we aim to offer insight into the character, providing details such as her ascension materials, skills, banner, and recommendations for her best build. So, be sure to check back here from time to time, as we will update this guide to make sure your Genshin Impact Kujou Sara is the best she can be.
If you are curious about upcoming heroes, be sure to check out our Genshin Impact Raiden Gorou, Genshin Impact Thoma, Genshin Impact Kokomi, Genshin Impact La Signora, and Genshin Impact Dainsleif guides. We also have a guide on the latest Genshin Impact update detailing what to expect from the upcoming changes.
What is the best Genshin Impact Sara build?
Our Genshin Impact Sara build guide focuses on using her in a sub DPS role, however, she can be used as a support character as well. We recommend you use her alongside Genshin Impact’s Diluc as the main DPS.
Which weapon should you use?
Amos’ Bow is our favourite weapon for Sara in a sub DPS role. If you would rather use her as a support character, the Favonius Warbow suits her well.
|Amos’ Bow||Increases normal and charged attack damage by 12%. After a shot is fired, normal and charged attack damage increases by 8% every 0.1 seconds up to five times|
|Favonius Warbow||Critical hits have a 60% chance to generate a small number of elemental particles, which regenerate six energy. Can only occur once every 12 seconds|
Which artifact set should you use?
These are our recommended artifact sets for Genshin Impact’s Kujou Sara.
|Thundering Fury||Two equipped: Increases electro damage by 15%
Four equipped: Increases overload, electro-charged, and superconduct damage by 40%. Triggering these three reactions reduces elemental burst cooldown by one second. Can only activate once every 0.8 seconds
|Noblesse Oblige||Two equipped: Increases elemental burst damage by 20%
Four equipped: After using an elemental burst, all teammates attack is increased by 20%. This lasts 12 seconds and does not stack
What are Sara’s skills?
|Tengu Bowmanship (normal)||Perform up to five shots with a bow|
|Tengu Bowmanship (charged)||Perform a more precise aimed shot. A fully charged arrow will deal electro damage, and when in Crowfeather Cover state, Sara will leave behind a Crowfeather after the attack hits. The Crowfeather she leaves behind triggers Tengu Juurai: Ambush, this deals AoE electro damage and grants the active character an attack bonus based on Sara’s base attack|
|Tengu Bowmanship (plunging)||Fire a shower of arrows in mid-air, these deal AoE damage on impact|
|Tengu Stormcall||Sara retreats and gains Crowfeather Cover for 18 seconds|
|Subjugation: Koukou Sendou||Casts down Tengu Juurai: Titanbreaker, dealing AoE electro damage. Then Tengu Juurai: Titanbreaker spreads out into four consecutive bouts of Tengu Juurai: Stormcluster to deal AoE electro damage. Titanbreak and Stormcluster provide the active character with the same attack bonus as Tengu Stormcall|
|Land Survey||Time spent on expeditions in Inazuma is reduced by 25%|
|Immovable Will||While in Crowfeather Cover, aimed shot charge time is reduced by 60%|
|Decorum||When Tengu Juurai: Ambush hits an enemy, Sara will restore 1.2 energy to all party members for every 100% energy recharge she has. This can only be triggered once every three seconds|
What are Sara’s constellations?
Constellations are buffs that improve how a character performs in battle. You can level up Sara’s constellations when you receive her as duplicate when making a wish.
|Crow’s Eye||When Tengu Juurai grants an attack bonus or hits opponents, the cooldown of Tengu Stormcall is decreased by one second. This can be triggered once every three seconds|
|Dark Wings||Unleashing Tengu Stormcall leaves a weaker Crowfeather at Sara’s original position that deals 30% of its original damage|
|The War Within||Increases the level of Subjugation: Koukou Sendou by three|
|Conclusive Proof||The number of Tengu Juurai: Stormcluster released by Subjugation: Koukou Sendou is increased to six|
|Spellsinger||Increases the level of Tengu Stormcall by three|
|Sin of Pride||The electro damage of characters who have had their attack increased by Tengu Juurai have their critical hit damage increased by 60%|
