This guide is based on the Community Character Builds by the Genshin Helper Team.


Talent Priorities

Skill > Burst
*Sucrose's Talent Levels are not a necessity

When utilized as a Viridescent Venerer (4) artifact set holder, make sure you don't immediately swap away after casting Skill/Burst, you need to be on-field when the swirl reaction happens for you to trigger the 4-set effect.

Sucrose's Ascension 4 Talent boosts the entire team's EM by 20% of Sucrose's total EM, this is why you want to stack as much Elemental Mastery as possible in her artifacts. As a support, most of Sucrose's value lies on her Ascension 1 and 4 talents, hence leveling her other talents (Normal Attack, Skill, Burst) is not required.

Recommended Weapons

  1. A Thousand Floating Dreams (5✩)
  2. Sacrificial Fragments (4✩)
    ~= Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers (3✩)*
  3. Hakushin Ring (4✩)*
  4. Magic Guide (3✩)
  5. Favonius Codex (4✩)*

1) A Thousand Floating Dreams (ATK: 542 • Elemental Mastery: 265)
[Refinement 1] Party members other than the equipping character will provide the equipping character with buffs based on whether their Elemental Type is the same as the latter or not. If their Elemental Types are the same, increase Elemental Mastery by 32. If not, increase the equipping character's DMG Bonus from their Elemental Type by 10%. Each of the aforementioned effects can have up to 3 stacks. Additionally, all nearby party members other than the equipping character will have their Elemental Mastery increased by 40. Multiple such effects from multiple such weapons can stack.

2) Sacrificial Fragments (ATK: 454 • Elemental Mastery: 221)
[Refinement 5] After dealing damage to an opponent with an Elemental Skill, the skill has a 80% chance to end its own CD. Can only occur once every 16s.

3) Hakushin Ring (ATK: 565 • Energy Recharge: 30.6%)
[Refinement 5]
After the character equipped with this weapon triggers an Electro elemental reaction, nearby party members of an Elemental Type involved in the elemental reaction receive a 20% Elemental DMG Bonus for their element, lasting 6s. Elemental Bonuses gained in this way cannot be stacked.

Note: This weapon is a good option for teams where Sucrose can swirl Electro to trigger its damage-boosting passive. In Electro-Charged teams, she can buff Hydro DMG% as well.

4) Magic Guide (ATK: 354 • Elemental Mastery: 187)
[Refinement 1]
Increases DMG against opponents affected by Hydro or Electro by 12%.

5) Favonius Codex (ATK: 510 • Energy Recharge: 45.9%)
[Refinement 1]
CRIT hits have a 60% chance to generate a small amount of Elemental Particles, which will regenerate 6 Energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12s.

Note: This weapon can be useful if you value the extra energy generation from the passive. You may need to get a few Crit Rate substats to trigger the passive reliably.

There are some team compositions in which Sucrose's Elemental Mastery is not a priority, such as Freeze teams or an Anemo battery for Xiao. In such situations, Sucrose should use Thrilling Tales of the Dragon Slayers.
