Sucrose can be considered one of the best supports in Genshin Impact, as well as one of its best overall 4-stars, even at C0. But how should you build her? Now, here’s the best support build for Sucrose in Genshin Impact.

The Best Sucrose Build in Genshin Impact | Best Artifacts, Stats, and Substats

As Sucrose shines as a support capable of enhancing your team’s reaction and elemental damage (the latter at C6), the best artifact set for her will be a 4-piece Viridescent Venerer.

The set is the best pick for her as it will allow you to deal massive damage while also actively decreasing the overall defense of all opponents. To put it simply, while equipped with a full 4-piece set, Sucrose will be able to both buff and massively debuff effectively.

Substat-wise, we recommend that you go for Elemental Mastery above all else, as it will both increase Sucrose’s team-oriented buff and her overall damage. You can check out the best main stats for each artifact piece below:

  • Flower of Life: HP%
  • Plume of Death: ATK%
  • Sands of Eon: EM
  • Goblet of Eonothem: EM
  • Circlet of Logos: EM

While equipped with the set above, Sucrose can also be used as a stellar reaction-based on-field catalyst on teams featuring off-the-field DPS’ capable of triggering Electro/Hydro reactions (Xingqiu /Yelan/Beidou).

The Best Weapons for Sucrose

As we will be aiming to have her reach an EM total close to or even surpassing 1,000, the best overall weapon for Sucrose is the 4-star Sacrificial Fragments.

The 4-star Catalyst is our main pick given its ability to offer a large sum of EM and it’s Elemental Skill-focused passive, which will make Sucrose self-sustainable. In order to get the most out of the weapon, we recommend that you try to get the Catalyst to at least R2.

For F2P players, we recommend the use of either the 4-star Catalyst Mappa Mare or the 3-star Catalyst Magic Guide, the latter of which will be our main pick given its high EM value. As usual, given its amazing passive, a fully refined Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers is also among the best for Sucrose, given its ability to massively buff specific characters and improve set rotations.

To recap, you can check out the best weapons for Sucrose below, as well as a great 5-star pick:

  • 5-star: A Thousand Floating Dreams (only recommended if you don’t have Nahida or Sacrificial Fragments)
  • 4-Star: Sacrificial Fragments (R2+ ideally)
  • F2P: Magic Guide / Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers / Mappa Mare (in that order).

What Talents Should You Prioritize?

When ascending Sucrose’s abilities, we recommend that you focus on both her Elemental Skill and Burst simultaneously.
