Protect Her Excellency, the Almighty Narukami Ogosho, God of Thunder with the best Genshin Impact Kujou Sara build and become the greatest Raiden Shogun fan of all time. Yes, you’ll be unable to find a greater simp for Inazuma’s Archon than this tengu, the general of her armies and an Electro 4-Star character wielding a bow as her main weapon.

Sara’s Elemental Skill, Tengu Stormcall, grants her Crowfeather Cover for a period of time. The time needed to charge up her Normal Attack is reduced thanks to this effect. Using a Charged Attack consumes the effect, but creates a Crowfeather at the target location. This will trigger Tengu Juurai: Ambush after a short while, dealing Electro Damage and granting an active character in range an Attack bonus based on Sara’s own Attack. When Tengu Juurai: Ambush hits an enemy, Sara restores Energy to every party member based on her Energy Recharge.

Kujou Sara is commanding the forces of Raiden Shogun and is perhaps a little too devoted to her.

Her Elemental Burst, Subjugation: Koukou Sendou, casts down the Tengu Juurai: Titanbreaker, dealing Electro Damage in an area of effect. Titanbreaker will then split up into four Tengu Juurai: Stormcluster, which deal Electro Damage as well. Both provide the same Attack bonus as Tengu Juurai: Ambush.

Though Kujou Sara is a support character, she needs to stack lots of Attack to maximize the Attack bonus provided to her allies alongside Energy Recharge to restore more Energy to them. Elegy for the End is an excellent weapon for this purpose, providing more Energy Recharge as well as boosting the wielder’s Elemental Mastery, which is great for maximizing the damage of reactions. Elemental Mastery and Attack get both boosted while the wielder is off the field, which is going to be the case a lot with Sara.

Here are the best weapons for Kujou Sara in Genshin Impact:

  • Elegy for the End (5-Star bow)
  • Skyward Harp (5-Star bow)
  • Alley Hunter (4-Star bow)
  • Mouun’s Moon (4-Star bow)
  • Sacrificial Bow (4-Star bow)
  • Favonius Warbow (4-Star bow)

Since Sara is going to fill a support role and will likely have plenty of Energy to use her Elemental Burst a lot, you practically can’t go wrong with giving her Noblesse Oblige as an artifact set. It will maximize the Elemental Burst Damage of Sara’s own ability and provide a hefty Attack bonus to all allies after using it.

You’ll want the following stat distribution on Kujou Sara’s artifacts:

  • Flower: HP (main stat), Attack %, Energy Recharge %, Elemental Mastery, Critical Hit Damage or Critical Hit Rate (secondary stats)
  • Plume: Attack (main stat), Attack %, Energy Recharge %, Elemental Mastery, Critical Hit Damage or Critical Hit Rate (secondary stats)
  • Sands: Attack % (main stat), Energy Recharge %, Elemental Mastery, Critical Hit Damage, Critical Hit Rate (secondary stats)
  • Goblet: Electro Damage % (main stat), Attack %, Energy Recharge %, Elemental Mastery, Critical Hit Damage or Critical Hit Rate (secondary stats)
  • Circlet: Energy Recharge % (main stat), Attack %, Elemental Mastery, Critical Hit Damage, Critical Hit Rate (secondary stats)

Best Kujou Sara teams – Genshin Impact

Kujou Sara goes especially well with Main DPS characters that also have an Electro Vision, though she can practically accompany any Main DPS that can make use of her off-field effects.

  • Raiden Shogun (Main DPS), Nahida (Sub DPS), Sara (Support), Kokomi (Support)

This is a Hyperbloom team in which Raiden Shogun will be on the field most of the time. Nahida uses her Elemental Skill to apply Dendro to enemies, which Kokomi’s off-field ability can trigger to create Bloom. Sara and Raiden Shogun are there to trigger the Hyperbloom reaction at this point, creating lots of Energy for the team to recharge all Elemental Bursts.

Alternatively, Lisa, Beidou, or Yae Miko will work as the Main DPS, while Collei or Dendro Traveler can replace Nahida. Hydro healers like Barbara or Furina can step in for Kokomi.

Kujou Sara ascension materials – Genshin Impact

You’ll want to quickly raise Kujou Sara’s level when you pull her, which means that you’ll need to farm her ascension materials. You’ll also require some material to upgrade her talents.

Here’s what you need to get Kujou Sara to level 90:

  • Vajrada Amethyst Sliver x1
  • Vajrada Amethyst Fragment x9
  • Vajrada Amethyst Chunk x9
  • Vajrada Amethyst Gemstone x6
  • Damaged Mask x18
  • Stained Mask x30
  • Ominous Mask x36
  • Dendrobium x168
  • Storm Beads x46
  • Mora x2,092,530

Farming Vajrada Amethyst is pretty straightforward, as you can reliably get it from the Thunder Manifestation on Seirai Island that you need to farm for Storm Beads anyway. Masks are dropped by Hilichurls, so they’ll be one of the materials you have the most of anyways. Dendrobium grows only in Inazuma and you should specifically look for it on Nazuchi Beach, amidst all the shipwrecks there. Mora can easily be farmed in Golden Ley Line Blossoms.

  • Guide to Elegance x63
  • Philosophies of Elegance x114

To enhance Kujou Sara’s talents you’ll have to farm even more Hilichurls and Ley Line Blossoms. Books of Elegance are available from the Violet Court Domain in Inazuma on Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday. Ashen Heart is a boss material from fighting La Signora at Tenshukaku. Crowns of Insight are available through time-limited events as well as regional reward tracks such as Inazuma’s Thunder Sakura, Sumeru’s Tree of Dreams, and Fontaine’s Fountain of Lucine.
