The best Genshin Impact Sucrose build enables the shy alchemy apprentice from Mondstadt to unleash powerful Swirl reactions, boosting their damage with a lot of Elemental Mastery. Being an easily accessible character, Sucrose is a flexible Support who fits into many different teams.

Sucrose’s Elemental Skill, Astable Anemohypostasis Creation – 6308, doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, but spawns a small wind spirit, which deals area-of-effect Anemo damage and pulls any nearby enemies toward itself before exploding and throwing them into the air.

Her Elemental Burst, Forbidden Creation – Isomer 75 / Type II, creates a larger wind spirit, which deals area-of-effect Anemo damage and constantly pulls enemies in and launches them again. If the wind spirit absorbs another damage type, it will deal additional damage of that type on top of its Anemo damage.

Sucrose has a bunch of useful passive talents as well, which buff her allies’ Elemental Mastery. This makes her an excellent addition to reaction-focused team compositions.

Best Sucrose weapons – Genshin Impact

Elemental Mastery is key to maximizing Sucrose’s damage output as well as the buffs she offers to the rest of the team. However, you should keep her Energy Recharge in mind as well, as her Elemental Burst is quite energy-hungry and you’ll want to be able to cast it as often as possible.

Sacrificial Fragments, a 4-star catalyst, offers the best of both worlds: It increases Elemental Mastery and offers a 40% chance to skip ability cooldowns after dealing damage with them, potentially allowing you to cast Astable Anemohypostasis Creation – 6308 for a second time. That will generate more energy particles and help recharge the Elemental Burst.

Here are the best weapons for Sucrose in Genshin Impact:

  • Sacrificial Fragments (4-star catalyst)
  • A Thousand Floating Dreams (5-star catalyst)
  • Mappa Mare (4-star catalyst)
  • Wandering Evenstar (4-star catalyst)
  • Favonius Codex (4-star catalyst)
  • Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers (3-star catalyst)
Genshin Impact Sucrose.

Sucrose is a diligent alchemy student and can be a powerful addition to many teams.

Best Sucrose artifacts – Genshin Impact

There is a very clear choice when it comes to the best artifact set for Sucrose: Viridescent Venerer, the standard issue item set for any Anemo Support. A full set of Viridescent Venerer increases your Anemo damage by 15% and further boosts the damage of your Swirl reactions by 60%. In addition, Swirls absorbing another element will reduce the resistance against that damage type on all hit enemies for a short time, enabling you to deal a lot more damage to them.

You’ll want the following stat distribution on artifacts for Sucrose:

  • Flower: HP (main stat), Elemental Mastery, Energy Recharge, Attack%, Attack (secondary stats)
  • Plume: Attack (main stat), Elemental Mastery, Energy Recharge, Attack% (secondary stats)
  • Sands: Elemental Mastery (main stat), Energy Recharge, Attack%, Attack (secondary stats)
  • Goblet: Elemental Mastery (main stat), Energy Recharge, Attack%, Attack (secondary stats)
  • Circlet: Elemental Mastery (main stat), Energy Recharge, Attack%, Attack (secondary stats)

Best Sucrose teams – Genshin Impact

Sucrose is one of the most flexible characters in Genshin Impact and neatly fits into many different compositions. As long as a team needs someone who can provide crowd control and boost the entire squad's reaction damage, consider Sucrose a strong candidate if you don’t have access to Kazuha.

This is a very strong Freeze team featuring the Cryo core of Ayaka and Shenhe with their Hydro enabler Kokomi. Sucrose’s role is to stack enemies at one place, making it easier for them to be frozen and hit by as many attacks as possible. In addition, her artifact set bonus reduces their resistance to Cryo, further boosting Ayaka’s damage.

  • Keqing (Main DPS), Nahida (Sub DPS), Yaoyao (Support), Sucrose (Support)

Thanks to Nahida and Yaoyao’s Dendro Resonance in combination with Sucrose’s talents, this team’s Elemental Mastery is off the charts. This provides a massive boost to the bonus damage Keqing’s Aggravate reactions provide to her attacks. As before, Sucrose further assists the team by stacking enemies – good for Keqing’s Elemental Burst in particular – and shredding their resistance.

This Vaporize team is truly devastating with Yelan providing her excellent off-field Hydro effects, Bennett buffing Klee’s damage and Klee… well, being Klee. Sucrose’s crowd control is less of a factor in this one, though it definitely helps with Klee’s limited range. Her Elemental Mastery buffs and resistance reduction are the big items making Sucrose a perfect addition to round this party off.

Sucrose ascension materials – Genshin Impact

You’ll want to quickly raise Sucrose’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 Sucrose to level 90:

  • Vayuda Turquoise Sliver x1
  • Vayuda Turquoise Fragment x9
  • Vayuda Turquoise Chunk x9
  • Vayuda Turquoise Gemstone x6
  • Whopperflower Nectar x18
  • Shimmering Nectar x30
  • Energy Nectar x36
  • Windwheel Aster x168
  • Hurricane Seed x46
  • Mora x2,092,530

Vayuda Turquoise is available from any Anemo-affiliated boss on the world map, such as the Anemo Hypostasis in Mondstadt or Sumeru’s Setekh Wenut. That’s perfect, because you need to defeat the Anemo Hypostasis in any case to get Hurricane Seeds, so you can hit two birds with one stone here. Nectar is pretty annoying to farm, unfortunately, as you won’t often find clusters of Whopperflowers. Liyue offers a few good locations to find them, such as near the entrance to the Pyro Regisvine or at the northern teleport waypoint.

Mora are easy to get from golden Ley Line Blooms, while Windwheel Asters can be found on the plateaus in the south and southeast of Mondstadt.

Here’s what you need to upgrade all three of Sucrose’s talents:

  • Whopperflower Nectar x18
  • Shimmering Nectar x66
  • Energy Nectar x93
  • Teachings of Freedom x9
  • Guide to Freedom x63
  • Philosophies of Freedom x114
  • Spirit Locket of Boreas x18
  • Crown of Insight x3
  • Mora x4,957,000

Aside from additional Nectar and Mora you’ll need to farm Books of Freedom at the Forsaken Rift Domain in Mondstadt on Monday, Thursday, and Sunday. Spirit Lockets of Boreas are available from Mondstadt’s Lupus Boreas boss fight. Crowns of Insight are a rare item gained from time-limited events or regional reward mechanics like the Tree of Dreams in Sumeru or the Grand Narukami Shrine.
