Genshin Impact Guide: Sayu

Genshin Impact Sayu: Playstyle and skill-set

Sayu is a small Anemo Ninja from Shiyuumatsu-Ban, a location from Inazuma. She is a ninja who likes to sleep as she believes it will help her grow taller. Sayu is a 4-star Anemo claymore user. Her constellation is Nyctereutes Minor. The following are her talents, skills and attacks.

Name / DescriptionType
Shinobi- Final FlashNormal Attack
Sayu performs up to 4 consecutive attacks.
SpinCharged attack
Sayu consumes stamina while attacking enemies with a spinning attack with the last attack being a heavy swing.
Claymore PlungePlunge attack
Sayu falls from the air with her claymore and hits the ground, attacking enemies around her dealing AoE damage as it hits the ground. 
Ooho-Ryu – Wind Hidden RushElemental Skill 
Sayu rolls into a high-speed wind wheel and crashes into foes it encounters, dealing Anemo damage, before ending with a Wind Wheel Dance Kick that causes wind damage at range. Once the talent is rolled more, the more time one spends in the wheel form, the longer the skill’s cooldown.
Woo Hoo Flow – Shadow raccoon dazzleElemental Burst
Anemo damage is dealt to nearby enemies, and all nearby characters in the party are healed. The amount of restoration benefits from Sayu’s attack power. The burst also summons “Unbreakable Raccoon.” Depending on the situation nearby, the raccoon will either heal your allies or attack your enemies with cryo damage.

Sayu’s Passive

  • With Sayu is on your side, some wild animals, such as crystal flies, will be unalarmed of your approach.
  • When Sayu causes a swirl reaction, all party members recover 300 HP plus an additional 1.2 HP for every EM point Sayu possesses. This effect can only be used once every 2 seconds.

Sets to farm for Sayu in Genshin Impact

There are two recommended artifact sets for Sayu. These two include “Viridescent Venerer” and “Noblesse Oblige“. Both of these sets are great on Sayu both for different reasons. Noblesse Oblige is an overall good set for a full support type Sayu as it greatly boosts the attack of your team. Whereas, Viridescent Venerer is better for a sub-DPS Sayu to build.

Talent upgrade materials for Sayu

As we are providing materials required for 1 talent, we need to multiply everything by 3. This is because of a total of 3 talents.

3xTBA (Inazuma 2* Talent level-up material)
21xTBA (Inazuma 3* Talent level-up material)
38xTBA (Inazuma 4* Talent level-up material)

Best weapons for Sayu

With Ayaka being a DPS or a support DPS character, weapons with Elemental mastery, CD reductions, and Team buffs would be of a great addition to her abilities.

Weapons for Sayu in Genshin Impact
  • Skyward Pride (5*)
  • Wolf’s Gravestone (5*)
  • Sacrificial Greatsword (4*)
  • Favonius Greatsword (4*)

With all that being said, we cannot wait for the addition of Ayaka in the game. A new addition of Sayu to the anemo lineup gives a second 4-star anemo character choice for players instead of only Sucrose.

Amber's Birthday

Excuse me, but did nobody account for the new EM buffs? Lisa’s definitely out of the bottom tier, her elemental reactions do incredible damage now. Overloaded hits ~17,000-23,000 at 1000 EM, depending on if you’re using the thundering set. Electro Charged hits ~10,000-12,000, also based on the thundering set. With Xingqiu or Xiangling, Lisa can pretty much solo half the abyss
