Genshin Impact Sucrose Character and Build Guide

Don't let her meek demeanor fool you: Sucrose is a powerhouse of a caster.

by Brandon Adams


Sucrose is a talented alchemist and researcher in Genshin Impact, though she’s more interested in studying bio-alchemy than the power of life itself. Sucrose is shy around other people, and only goes out as required for her research. But, if Sucrose finds herself in a jam she’s more than capable at defending herself with her Anemo-powered catalyst spells.

Genshin Impact Sucrose Character and Build Breakdown

Below are listed Sucrose’s full set of attacks and abilities, her passive talents, constellations, and finally all of her ascension and talent material requirements. Build recommendations, to include both suggested weapons and artifact sets, are in the center of this guide following Sucrose’s constellations. If you’d like to see a full list of stats – such as damage numbers, percentages, etc. – check out Honey Hunter World, which was used as a source for this guide.

Sucrose Build Suggestions in Genshin Impact

Sucrose is an excellent support character in Genshin Impact, though her ability to set up more powerful elemental combos with other characters makes her a solid secondary damage dealer. Sucrose may be one of the easiest characters to gear out as well, since her best weapon is a relatively easy to obtain 4-star and there’s really only one artifact set to farm.

There’s no splitting hairs with Sucrose’s builds in Genshin Impact: whether you want to lean more support or damage you’ll need the same equipment. The Sacrificial Fragments catalyst is the absolute best weapon for Sucrose, and despite being locked behind gacha pulls it’s actually not too terrible to farm since it’s a 4-star. You may even be sitting on one or more of them right now, since it frequently pops up in featured banners. The Mappa Mare is a craftable 4-star catalyst that works almost as well as the Sacrificial Fragments, so use it if you are somehow struggling to grab a copy of the Sacrificial Fragments.

  • Sacrificial Fragments: After dealing damage to an opponent with an Elemental Skill, the skill has a 40% (up to 80%) chance to end its own cooldown. Can only occur once every 30s (down to 16s). Secondary: Elemental Mastery.
  • Mappa Mare: Triggering an Elemental reaction grants a 8% (up to 16%) Elemental DMG Bonus for 10s. Max 2 stacks. Secondary: Elemental Mastery.

There’s only one artifact set in Genshin Impact that’s worth farming for Sucrose, and it’s the Viridescent Venerer. Since Sucrose is able to rapidly charge her team’s Elemental Bursts thanks to her innate Elemental Mastery boosts you’ll want to focus on rolling for even more Elemental Mastery, followed by Anemo damage and Attack percentage. The Anemo and Attack percentage increases are especially great to have since Sucrose is a Swirl combo-generating machine. Use the Instructor artifact set as filler equipment while farming for the Viridescent Venerer, since it’s a common drop and easy to acquire (that, and the set bonuses synergize well with Sucrose’s kit).

  • Viridescent Venerer (Valley of Remembrance)
    • (2) Anemo damage bonus +15%.
    • (4) Increases Swirl damage by 60%. Decreases opponent’s Elemental resistance to the element infused in the Swirl by 40% for 10s.
  • Instructor (Normal Bosses and Stormterror)
    • (2) Increases Elemental Mastery by 80.
    • (4) Upon triggering an Elemental Reaction, increases all party members’ Elemental Mastery by 120 for 8s.
