Genshin Impact's Sucrose standing on a hill in front of Monstadt

In Genshin Impact, Sucrose is an extremely curious alchemist who specialises in bio-alchemy. She looks up to her boss, Albedo, and believes he is one of the best alchemists around. In her spare time, you’ll find Sucrose performing experiments with often mixed results.

You can use this four-star anemo character in either a sub DPS or support role. Our Genshin Impact Sucrose guide will provide suitable weapons and artifacts for whichever path you choose to take her down. We also outline the items you need to save up in order to ascend Sucrose fully.

The best Genshin Impact Sucrose build

Sucrose works alright in a support or sub DPS role, but doesn’t excel in either. Feel free to use her in whichever role you like. We recommend putting her in a team with Klee to help spread pyro damage around the battlefield.

Which weapon should you use?

We recommend using the Sacrificial Fragments catalyst. However, as this can only be earned via a wish, it can be hard to obtain. Feel free to forge the Mappa Mare at the blacksmith until you manage to get your hands on Sacrificial Fragments.

Weapon Effect
Sacrificial Fragments After an enemy is hit by an elemental skill, the skill has a 40% chance to end its own cooldown. This can only occur once every 30 seconds
Mappa Mare Triggering an elemental reaction boosts elemental damage by 8% for ten seconds. Max two stacks

Which artifact set should you use?

You can use either of the sets below in a support or sub DPS role. However, our first pick would be items from the Viridescent Venerer set.

Artifact set Effect
Viridescent Venerer Two equipped: 15% anemo damage bonus
Four equipped: Swirl damage is increased by 60%. Your opponent’s elemental resistance to the element infused in the swirl is decreased by 40% for ten seconds
