Best Build for Sucrose in Genshin ImpactSucrose 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) TeamIn 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 TeamSucrose 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.
