Genshin Impact Sucrose Guide - best build, strengths and weaknesses
| Genshin Impact

Welcome to Pocket Gamer's detailed Genshin Impact Sucrose guide! Sucrose is the assistant to Albedo, the head alchemist for the Knights of Favonius. Not only does she love experimenting, but she spends an extensive amount of time researching alchemy, becoming quickly bored when she is not in the middle of a new study. Sucrose is a shy girl and finds it hard to communicate with others. 

In the Sucrose guide below you will find the following features:

Sucrose is currently featured as a rate-up character in the Raiden Shogun’s Banner, Reign of Serenity, until September 20th, 2021. You can obtain Sucrose in the permanent banner, Wanderlust Invocation.

Best Build for Sucrose in Genshin Impact

Sucrose is an alchemist with a penchant for delivering Anemo damage and conducting experiments that will help your team produce more combos quicker. If you’re going to focus on making her the best Support build, you want to equip her with the Sacrificial Fragments weapon, as it has a chance to cancel cooldowns, that way she’ll always be ready to shoot off another Anemo attack. Also, equip the Viridescent Venerer so she gets a damage bonus from her element and it can also increase Swirl damage.

Best Party Members to match Sucrose with in Genshin Impact

Premium (Gacha) Team

In Genshin Impact, Sucrose is a great choice for Support and can help with crowd control. Bennett is a great choice to provide healing for the team. Use Xingqiu to use Hydro on the field and cause additional damage with Pyro teammates. Diluc should be used as the DPS, as he not only has resonance with Bennett, but he can also cause Vaporize. 

F2P Team

Sucrose should be your Support character, as she can not only control crowds but can cause Vaporize when Pyro characters come out to play. Xiangling should be the DPS on this team, as she is one of the strongest F2P characters. Use Amber to not only have resonance with Xiangling but also to pair up for combos with Sucrose. Barbara will offer healing and Hydro-related reactions.
