Sayu is the new four-star character in Genshin Impact and is released alongside Yoimiya, the five-star Pyro bow character known as the Owner of Naganohara Fireworks. While Yoimiya is a burst damage dealer, Sayu is a great support character. She deals Anemo Damage to her enemies alongside having the ability to also heal her party members simultaneously.
If you got Sayu from Yoimiya’s Character Event Banner, this is the perfect guide to understand her gameplay. This guide will turn Sayu into the ideal support character for your party.
Best Weapons for Sayu
- Skyward Pride – This weapon will increase all of Sayu’s Damage dealt by 8%. After she uses her Elemental Burst, Normal or Charged Attack, on hit, the weapon will create a vacuum blade which does 80% of Attack as Damage to opponents along its path. This will last for 20 seconds or 8 vacuum blades.
- Katsuragikiri Nagamasa – This weapon will increase Sayu’s Elemental Skill Damage by 6%. After an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, she will lose 3 Energy but regenerates 3 Energy for every 2 seconds for the next 6 seconds. The effect can occur once every 10 seconds. It can also be triggered even when the character is not on the field.
Best Artifacts for Sayu
- Viridescent Venerer (4 pieces) – A 2 piece set of Viridescent Venerer will increase Sayu’s Anemo Damage by 15%, while a 4-piece set will increase the Spread Damage by 60%. This depends on the Element, which reduces the Resistance of enemies hit by Swirl by 40%. This effect will last for 10 seconds.
- Noblesse Oblige (4 pieces) – A 2 piece set of Noblesse Oblige will increase Sayu’s Elemental Burst Damage by 20%. On the other hand, a 4-piece set of these artifacts will give all party members a 20% Attack increase after Sayu uses her Elemental Burst. This will last for 12 seconds and will not stack.
Sayu is one of the four characters you can get from the current Character Event Wish alongside Yoimiya, Diona, and Xinyan. To try Sayu’s character, you can play Genshin Impact. The game is free to download on Microsoft Windows gaming PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Android and iOS devices.
