3. Best Build For Sayu In Genshin Impact

With these skills and talents, Sayu is one of the best healers and supporters in Genshin Impact 2.0. Here are the most recommended weapons, artifacts, and teammates to build her.

Sayu's Best Weapons

Skyward Pride is the best weapon for this Anemo healer. It helps increase all the DMG she caused by 8%. Moreover, the DMG of her normal and charged attacks also increase a lot during the phase of her elemental bursts.

You can also use a Favonius Greatsword or a Prototype Archaic for her if you don't have that 5-star claymore. These two 4-star blades are also effective when you build her supporting role. They increase the CRIT Rates and ATK DMG of this supporter in your team.

Sayu's Best Artifacts

To increase the Anemo DMG for Sayu, a healer, you can use 2 pieces of the Viridescent Venerer Set for her. If you have 4 pieces of this set to build her, it can increase the Spread DMG by 60%. Besides, it also reduces the RES of enemies hits by 40% based on the elements.

The best artifact set for Sayu is the Viridescent Venerer Set.

Sayu's Best Team Build

As Sayu plays the role of a supporter or healer, you need to match this Anemo character with some DPS and sub-DPS. Keep in mind that the Anemo element can increase the AoE of the Pyro element and spread the burning effect. It's highly recommended to put Sayu in a Pyro team.

  • Recommendations For DPS role: Yoimiya, Klee, and Hu Tao. These Pyro characters have mind-blowing elemental bursts that cause huge flames to burn enemies. Sayu's wind swirls can increase the AoE of their burst.
  • Recommendations For Sub-DPS role: Ayaka, Ganyu, Chongyun, Rosaria. These Genshin Impact Cryo characters often release frost air to cause DMG and freeze enemies when they combine with Hydro characters or combat in the rain. The wind swirls of Sayu can increase the area of this frost air to freeze more enemies.
Sayu Best Team
Sayu will support the new characters Ayaka and Yoimiya well.

4. Genshin Impact Sayu Ascension Materials

Apart from weapons and artifacts, you also need to collect some materials to ascend Sayu. Here are three main materials for Sayu's Ascension.

  • Maguu Kenki Drops: Maguu Kenki is a new boss in Inazuma. You also met him in the Golden Apple Archipelago in the previous update and many other challenges. He will drop an ascension material called Marionette Core.
  • Crystal Marrow: It's a new material spawning in the new nation Inazuma. You should collect it while traversing this country.
  • Vayuda Stone Series: The Vayuda Turquoise Slivers, Fragments, Chunks, and Gemstones are also necessary for Sayu's ascension. You need all materials in this series to ascend Anemo characters. These materials are dropped by Anemo Hypostasis but this boss is hard to defeat.
