5 - Sucrose Genshin Impact Gameplay & Best Build

Overall, Sucrose is a top class support who fits in most lineups. Her abilities can gather and debuff enemies while buffing your other characters. Below are the set of weapon and artifacts for the best Sucrose Genshin Impact build.

Sucrose recommended weapon

  • The optimal main weapon for  Sucrose is Sacrificial Fragments. It has a high chance to refresh skill cooldown after dealing damage to enemies, which can lets her release Elemental Skill up to 3 times in a row.
  • Skyward Atlas, Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers and Mappa Mare are good alternatives. The Widsith is also pretty decent if you want her to deal some damage.

Sucrose best team

Sucrose boosts the whole team's Elemental Mastery and Elemental Reaction damage. This makes her a pretty f2p friendly character, who can provide crowd control and DMG boost. Furthermore, due to her nature of being a 4 Star character, it is just a matter of time until you got maxed constellation.

Below are 2 versions of teams involving Sucrose, for both Premium and F2P players:

Premium Team: Sucrose + Diluc + Xingqiu + Bennett

  • Sucrose is the main crowd control/support. She will gather and disable enemies, allowing Diluc and Xingqiu to easily combo. She also increases the Vaporize damage from Diluc and Xingqiu
  • Diluc is the main DPS.
  • Xingqiu will spread Hydro enabling bigger damage via Vaporize.
  • Bennett buffs Diluc by Pyro resonance while also provide healing.
Sucrose's buff does not affect herself, so using her as a DPS is not that efficient.

F2P Team: Sucrose + Xiangling + Barbara + Amber

  • Sucrose is the main crowd control/support, allowing Xiangling to deal damage more easily.
  • Xiangling is the main DPS who spread Pyro.
  • Amber's skills combo pretty well with Sucrose's abilities for Pyro Infusion.
  • Barbara provides heal while spreading Hydro for reactions.
