Genshin Impact’s Sucrose is an extremely curious alchemist who specializes in bio-alchemy. As a four-star anemo catalyst user, she’s always on the hunt for new test subjects to try out her experiments. So let’s conduct anemo test 6308, as we look at the best Genshin Sucrose build, artifacts, weapons, and more.
If you want to build up a strong team, head over to our Genshin Impact tier list to find out where each character ranks so you know who to wish for on the Genshin Impact next banner. For those of you who need some extra primogems in order to wish for some new characters, take a look at our Genshin Impact codes list for some freebies. We also have in-depth build guides for Genshin Impact’s Freminet, Genshin Impact’s Neuvillette, and Genshin Impact’s Furina.
Here’s everything you need to know before you meet Genshin Impact’s Sucrose.
|Best weapon||A Thousand Floating Dreams|
|Weapon alternative||Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers|
|Best artifact set||Viridescent Venerer|
|Artifact alternatives||Gilded Dreams|
Sucrose’s best weapon is A Thousand Floating Dreams as it boosts her elemental mastery, which is by far her most important stat. Her best artifact set is Viridescent Venerer, much like a lot of anemo characters. You should focus on elemental mastery on all pieces.
Sucrose’s utility comes from her elemental skill and elemental burst abilities. They are powerful elemental reaction drivers and are great for crowd control in large groups of enemies. You’re not really going to get much use out of her normal attack, except for maybe collecting dandelion seeds in the wild.
She does rely on her first and fourth constellations to really reach maximum potential, and her burst cost is pretty high. But, as a budget Kazuha or Venti, she gets the job done. Plus, she’s very cute!
If you’re lucky enough to pull it on the weapon banner, A Thousand Floating Dreams is a fantastic weapon for boosted elemental mastery and reaction synergy. Generally, we recommend Sacrificial Fragments for an on-field reaction driver Sucrose, as it provides high elemental mastery and another skill charge, lowering her energy recharge requirements in the process.
For support Sucrose, Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers is a surprisingly powerful option, sacrificing her personal damage in exchange for a large attack buff to the next character you take to the field.
|Weapon||Effect||How to obtain|
|A Thousand Floating Dreams||Bonus stat: elemental mastery
Skill: Party members other than Sucrose will provide her with buffs based on whether they are anemo users or not. If they are, Sucrose’s elemental mastery is increased by 32. If they use different elements, Sucrose’s anemo damage bonus is increased 10%. Each of the aforementioned effects can have up to three stacks. Additionally, all nearby party members other Sucrose will have their elemental mastery increased by 40. If two party members are using A Thousand Floating Dreams, these effects can stack
|Weapon event gacha|
|Sacrificial Fragments||Bonus stat: elemental mastery
Skill: After Sucrose’s elemental skill hits an enemy, it has a 40% chance to end its own cooldown. This can only occur once every 30 seconds
|Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers||Bonus stat: HP
Skill: When switching characters, the new character taking the field has their attack increased by 24% for ten seconds. This effect can only occur once every 20 seconds
Regardless of the situation, if you have Sucrose on your team, she should always be holding a full set of Viridescent Venerer. It boosts her own damage, shreds enemy elemental resistances, and helps out her entire team. No other set compares.
However, seeing as Viridescent Venerer is basically the best artifact set for every single anemo character, farming enough for all your units can be a pain. Gilded Dreams is a pretty good substitute that boosts Sucrose’s elemental mastery, either as a four-piece set or combined with Wanderer’s Troupe.
|Artifact set||Effect||How to obtain|
|Viridescent Venerer||Two equipped: 15% anemo damage bonus
Four equipped: Increases swirl damage by 60%. Your opponent’s elemental resistance to the element infused in the swirl is decreased by 40% for ten seconds
|Valley of Remembrance in Windwail Highland, near the Dawn Winery, Mondstadt|
|Gilded Dreams||Two equipped: elemental mastery +80
Four equipped: Within eight seconds of triggering an elemental reaction, Sucrose obtains buffs based on the elemental type of the other party members. Increases attack by 14% for each party member with the same elemental type as Sucrose, and increases elemental mastery by 50 for every party member with a different elemental type. Each of the aforementioned buffs count up to three characters. This effect can trigger once every eight seconds, even when Sucrose isn’t on the field
|Spire of Solitary Enlightenment domain in Avidya Forest, Sumeru|
|Wanderer’s Troupe||Two equipped: elemental mastery +80
Four equipped: Increases charged attack damage by 35% if the equipping character uses a catalyst or a bow
|World bosses and weekly bosses, as well as the Wanderer’s Troupe artifact strongbox|
|Instructor||Two equipped: elemental mastery +80
Four equipped: Increases all party members’ elemental mastery upon triggering an elemental reaction by 120 for eight seconds
|Defeating enemies, opening chests, completing quests|

Effective Sucrose teams benefit from a range of different element types as her kit is all about reactions. Go for the Protective Canopy resonance with four unique elements, or double up on cryo, hydro, electro, or pyro units to activate their resonances and boost your reactions.
Here are two examples of strong Sucrose team comps:
|Normal attack: Wind Spirit Creation||Normal: Performs four anemo attacks
Charged: Consumes stamina to deal AoE anemo damage
Plunging: Deals AoE anemo damage on impact with the ground
|Elemental skill: Astable Anemohypostasis Creation – 6308||Summons a wind spirit that deals AoE anemo damage, then pulls enemies towards you before launching them|
|Elemental burst: Forbidden Creation – Isomer 75 / Type II||Summons a large wind spirit to pull, launch, and deal AoE anemo damage to nearby enemies. If the spirit comes into contact with hydro, pyro, cryo, or electro elements, it deals additional damage of that type|
|Catalyst Conversion||When you trigger a swirl effect, party members with the matching element get 50% higher elemental mastery for eight seconds|
|Mollis Favonius||When Astable Anemohypostatis Creation – 6308 or Forbidden Creation – Isomer 75 / Type II hits an enemy, party members gain an elemental mastery increase based on 20% of Sucrose’s elemental mastery for eight seconds|
|Astable Invention||When crafting character and weapon enhancement materials, you have a 10% chance to double the product|
You can level up Sucrose’s constellations every time you receive her as a duplicate when making a wish. Here’s every bonus you receive.
|C1: Clustered Vacuum Field||Astable Anemohypostasis Creation – 6308 gains one additional charge|
|C2: Beth – Unbound Form||The duration of Forbidden Creation – Isomer 75 / Type II is increased by two seconds|
|C3: Flawless Alchemistress||Increases the level of Astable Anemohypostasis Creation – 6308 by three|
|C4: Alchemania||After every seven normal and charged attacks, the cooldown of Astable Anemohypostasis Creation – 6308 is decreased by one to seven seconds|
|C5: Caution: Standard Flask||Increases the level of Forbidden Creation – Isomer 75 / Type II by three|
|C6: Chaotic Entropy||If Forbidden Creation – Isomer 75 / Type II triggers elemental absorption, all party members will gain a 20% elemental damage boost for the absorbed element|
