Anemo characters in Genshin Impact can be integrated into many teams, which makes them highly sought after. Sucrose is no different as it can be built for many different teams and playstyles with very little investment. She is a four-star Catalyst user who uses her alchemy skills in combat to attack enemies and buff allies.

Gameplay

In a support role, Sucrose can trigger Whirlwind and glows the most against multiple enemies. Whirlwind spreads other elemental damage, making it easy to cause groups of enemies to suffer from the effects of Cryo, Pyro, Hydro, or Electro. This is especially useful for setting up elemental reactions for other team members.



In a more detrimental role, Sucrose can increase its attack in order to deal a good amount of damage, however, the attack does not increase Whirlwind damage and only increases Anemo damage that Sucrose deals or the damage of its infused element by elemental explosion. While a DPS build is possible, Sucrose deals more reliable damage in a support role thanks to the way whirlwind damage is calculated.

talents

  • Wind Spirit Creation – Normal Sucrose attacks deal Anemo damage and can be used to trigger Whirlwind easily. Repeated application of other reactions like electrocharge is possible using only normal or charged attacks, but enemies will lose the element affecting them if introduced to multiple reaction types.
  • Create Astable Anemohypostasis – 6308 – Sucrose elemental skill will gather nearby enemies into it, unleashing anemo damage. It is very powerful because it creates four elemental particles and collects enemies in one place. His first Constellation gives Sucrose a second charge of the skill, allowing him to use it twice in a row.
  • Forbidden Creation – Isomer 75 / Type II – Sucrose elemental burst is able to absorb an element to deal infused damage as well as its standard anemo damage when not infused. He hits three times in six seconds and gets an extra hit for his second Constellation.

Passive Skills

  • Catalyst Conversion – This passive increases the Elemental Mastery of those who use the same element Sucrose triggers the Whirlwind with by 50 for eight seconds. This is especially useful when swirling around multiple items to potentially buff the whole team.
  • Mollis Favonius – When using her Elemental Skill or Elemental Blast, Sucrose's second passive grants each other party member 20% of their own Elemental Mastery. This can make the rest of the team's elemental reactions extremely powerful and is the main reason Sucrose is so strong.

Poor

Depending on how sucrose is used, there are a few catalysts that maximize its potential. Energy recharge can be important for players who need it, however, because the Sucrose elemental burst has such a long cooldown, players are unlikely to need a lot of energy recharge for it. Instead, focusing on strengthening the team or increasing Sucrose elemental mastery should be a priority.

  • Sacrificial Fragments – Weapon increases Elemental Mastery 221 at level 90, making it one of the best choices for sucrose players. Additionally, the weapon has an 80% chance at refinement five to reset its elemental skill cooldown.
  • The Widsith – Players using Sucrose as DPS can't hurt with this weapon. It will increase Sucrose critical damage by 55,1% at level 90 and has three additional effects. Depending on the song being played, the weapon will increase either Attack, Elemental Damage, or Elemental Mastery by 120%, 96%, or 480 at refinement five respectively.
  • Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers – This three-star weapon is easy to obtain and has a percentage of HP as its sub-stat, however, its effect increases the attack of other party members by 48% when off for 10 seconds. Because a sucrose support doesn't care about its attack stat, it's a support's dream weapon.

Artifacts

As good as the Noblesse Oblige set is, it's hard to argue with the effectiveness of the four-piece Viridescent Venerer set. The first bonus provides a 15% bonus to Anemo damage. The second bonus reduces the elemental resistance of the elemental whirlwind it hits enemies with by 40% for 10 seconds.



Sucrose DPS players can always opt for more damage-based Artifacts like Gladiator's Finale or Shimenawa's Reminiscence for the 18% attack increase. It's also worth noting that any additional elemental damage bonuses from Artifacts will also benefit Anemo characters. This is because applying Swirl will deal both anemonic damage and damage to the element the enemy is imbued with. Character buffs like Shenhe's Chill Feathers from his Elemental Skill also increase Sucrose's own cryo damage when fighting cryo affected enemies.

Artifact Stats

  • Flower – Main Stat – HP – Substats – Elemental Mastery, Energy Refill
  • Feather – Main Stat – Attack – Substats – Elemental Mastery, Energy Recharge
  • Sands – Main Stat – Elemental Mastery – Sub Stats – Energy Recharge, Attack, Preference
  • Goblet – Main Stat – Elemental Mastery – Sub Stats – Energy Recharge, Attack, Preference
  • Diadem – Main Stat – Elemental Mastery – Substats – Energy Refill, Attack, Preference

Best Team for Sucrose

The best part about Sacrose is his ability to do in almost any team composition. Unfortunately, Geo characters don't mix well with Anemo characters because Crystalize won't proc on enemies affected by Anemo. His best team compositions rely on being played with characters that use a lot of elemental reactions. Vaporize, Fusion, and Overload teams can only be buffed by Sucrose, as its Elemental Mastery will increase the rest of the group's damage.


The way elemental mastery works is that the second applicator of an element is all that matters when calculating damage. It is based on the level and total elemental mastery of the second elemental damage dealer. Electro-Charged teams do exceptionally well with Sucrose providing them with buffs as it has a continuous effect and can be applied multiple times with normal Sucrose attacks.

Team Examples

  • Fondre - Bennett, Xiangling, Rosaria
  • Vaporiser – Hu Tao, Xingqiu, Thoma
  • Overload – Klee, Beidou, Healer
  • Electro-charged – Xinqiu, Fischl, Beidou
  • Gel – Chongyun, Xinqiu, Diona
  • Physics/Superconduct – Beidou, Eula, Fischl
