What’s the best Genshin Impact Sucrose build?

Best weapon Sacrificial Fragments
Weapon alternative A Thousand Floating Dreams, Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers
Best artifact set Viridescent Venerer
Artifact alternatives Gilded Dreams
Main stats
  • Sands: elemental mastery
  • Goblet: elemental mastery
  • Circlet: elemental mastery
Sub-stats
  • Energy recharge
  • Elemental mastery

Sucrose’s best weapon is Sacrificial Fragments 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.

How should I use Sucrose?

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!

What are the best Sucrose weapons?

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.

However, we recommend Sacrificial Fragments for an on-field reaction driver Sucrose, as it provides almost as much elemental mastery as A Thousand Floating Dreams, plus 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
Gacha
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
Gacha

What are the best Sucrose artifacts?

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 the best artifact set for basically 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

What are the best Sucrose team comps?
