Sayu is a 4 star Anemo Claymore character in Genshin Impact. While her kit is pretty decent, she doesn't have any niche that other characters cannot do. However, with the right lineup, players can definitely run Sayu as a healer/support while dealing decent damage as a sub DPS.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the best Sayu team comps for sub DPS and Support.

Sayu is amongst the least popular characters in Genshin.

1. High-End Sayu Team Comps

Sayu's biggest strength is her consistent Anemo procs alongside a decent healing ability. With EM as her hidden stat, she can serve as a battery for quite a few characters. Furthermore, her kit's decent AoE can generate a lot of particles and energy. This makes Sayu much easier to play and gear compared to other supports.

Sayu's weakness is probably her 80 cost Burst and a rather clunky Elemental Skill. She can be interrupted or knocked out of rolling. Additionally, she also needs at least C1 to be an effective healer.

Sayu + Ganyu Freeze Team

Character Role Artifact Constellation
Ganyu Main DPS Wanderer's Troupe (4) Any
Mona Sub DPS Emblem Of Severed Fate (4) Any
Sayu Sub DPS/Support Viridescent Venerer (4) C6 (if possible)
Venti Sub DPS/Support Viridescent Venerer (4) Any

Ganyu is the main DPS of this team comp, inflicting powerful shots to enemies. Furthermore, she triggers Freeze with the help of Mona. Mona is the Burst damage support + enabler of the team with her powerful Hydro Burst.

Sayu and Venti will spread the Viridescent Venerer debuff and control the enemies with their kits. Furthermore, Sayu can heal and deal additional damage.

Ganyu Amos Bow
Ganyu's Freeze comp works pretty well with Sayu.

Sayu + Xiao Swirl Team

Character Role Artifact Set Constellation Level
Xiao Main DPS Viridescent Venerer (2)+ Gladiator's Finale (2) Any
Chongyun Sub DPS Blizzard Strayer (2) + Noblesse Oblige (2) C6 (if possible)
Zhongli Support/Enabler Tenacity of the Millelith (4) Any
Sayu Support/Enabler Viridescent Venerer (4) C6 (if possible)

Xiao is the main DPS of this comp, with plunge attacks dealing wide AOE Anemo DMG. This team builds around Xiao's Elemental Burst, which allows him to do consecutive plunge attacks. Sayu serves as a battery, allowing Xiao to use his Elemental Burst as soon as possible.

Chongyun’s Elemental Skill (requires C2) lower CDs of Xiao's Elemental Burst. He also deals extra Cryo damage backstage.

Zhongli is the flex pick of the team. His sturdy shield allows players to fight constantly without having to worry about HP.

Xiao is the most powerful Anemo DPS who can carry the team by himself.

2. Mid-Tier Sayu Team Comps

Sayu + Xiangling Overload Team

Character Role Artifact Constellation
Xiangling Main DPS Crimson Witch of Flames (4) C6 (if possible)
Sayu Sub DPS/Healer Viridescent Venerer (4) C6 (if possible)
Beidou Sub DPS Thundering Fury (2) + Noblesse Oblige (2) C6 (if possible)
Bennett Sub DPS/Healer Noblesse Oblige (4) C6 (if possible)

This is a f2p friendly lineup, with all characters being 4 stars. This team focuses on off-field abilities while rolling around with Sayu E to proc massive reaction damage. Beidou can be used as the main DPS when bursts and Sayu E are on CD.

Xiangling’s Elemental Burst provides a huge amount of DMG and continuous Pyro element attachment for Sayu to trigger Anemo Swirl. Bennett provides the whole team with Pyro Resonance and healing when needed. Players can replace Bennett with a Cryo enabler like Kaeya for Melt damage triggers.

Xiangling is a cheap source of Pyro damage without the need of heavy investment.

Sayu + Yoimiya Team

Character Role Artifact Constellation
Yoimiya Main DPS Shimenawa's Reminiscence (4) Any
Sayu Sub DPS Viridescent Venerer (4) C6 (if possible)
Xiangling Support/Sub DPS Crimson Witch of Flames (4) C6 (if possible)
Fischl Sub DPS/Healer Noblesse Oblige (4) C6 (if possible)

Yoimiya is an awkward character with a hard-to-use Burst. Sayu can help in dealing with this issue. Besides increasing Yoimiya's DPS, Sayu's off-field Elemental Burst will trigger Yoimiya's Burst for extra damage.

Xiangling is just the best-in-slot Pyro support, providing off-field damage for reactions from Sayu. She also unlocks Pyro resonance for extra damage. Fischl is off-field support who provides a bit of extra damage and Overload reaction.

Yoimiya Attack
Yoimiya can be deadly with the right team comp.

3. F2P Sayu Team Comp

This lineup is designed for complete f2p and new players who want to build around Sayu.

Character Role Artifact Constellation
Sayu Main DPS Any Any
Amber Support Any Any
Xiangling Sub DPS Any Any
Kaeya Healing Any Any

Sayu will be the healer and debuffer. She can also act as a sub-DPS by boosting reactions. Kaeya can easily set up Melt for additional damage with Xiangling..

Amber's role is to use her skill and burst to deal dmg and crowd control enemies.
