Sayu Skill Guide & How To Use Sayu

Recommended Rotation for Sayu

Recommended Rotation
1Inflict an Element to an enemy using other characters.
2Use Sayu's Elemental Skill to swirl the element for buff. Continue rolling to deal damage and break shields.
3Switch to a different character and deal damage.
4Use Elemental Burst when healing is needed.

Uses Of Sayu's Elemental Skill

Elemental Skill Is Great At Offense & Traveling

Elemental Skill is a rolling skill that last for a long time that makes Sayu semi-invisible because of its speed and mobility. This is great for breaking shield and debuffing enemies with Viridescent Venerer. It is also great for traveling when exploring the overworld.

Uses Of Sayu's Elemental Burst

Burst Heals & Deals Damage

Sayu's Elemental Burst is a great utility skill that heals the players and deals Anemo damage to enemies. However, the burst cost is at 80 making Energy Recharge weapon such as Favonius Greatsword useful for the skill's consistency.

Sayu Wish & Constellation Guide

Should You Get Or Wish For Sayu?

Pull If You Need A Support & Healer


Sayu can heal while inflicting damage to enemies within the range of her elemental burst. As an Anemo support, Viridescent Venerer is the best artifact set so she can decrease the enemies' elemental resistance. Although Sayu's constellation improves her supportive capabilities, it is not recommended to aim for Sayu when pulling unless Sayu's rate is boosted.

Best Constellation For Sayu

★★★★・C1: Multi-Task No Jutsu
The Muji-Muji Durama created by Yoohoo Art: Mujina Flurry will ignore HP limits and can simultaneously attack nearby opponents and heal characters.
★★★・・C2: Egress Prep
Yoohoo Art: Fuuin Dash gains the following effects:
- DMG of Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick in Press Mode increased by 3.3%
- Every 0.5s in the Fuufuu Windwheel state will increase the DMG of this Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick by 3.3%. The maximum DMG increase possible through this method is 66%.
★★★★★C3: Eh, The Bunshin Can Handle It
Increases the Level of Yoohoo Art: Mujina Flurry by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
★★★★・C4: Skiving: New And Improved
Sayu recovers 1.2 Energy when she triggers a Swirl reaction.
This effect occurs once every 2s.
★・・・・C5: Speed Comes First
Increases the Level of Yoohoo Art: Fuuin Dash by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
★★★・・C6: Sleep O'Clock
The Muji-Muji Daruma created by Sayu's Yoohoo Art: Mujina Flurry will now also benefit from her Elemental Mastery. Each point of Sayu's Elemental Mastery will produce the following effects:
- Increases the damage dealt by the Muji-Muji Daruma's attacks by 0.2% ATK. A maximum DMG increase of 400% ATK can be gained via this method
- Increase the HP restored by the Muji-Muji Daruma by 3. A maximum of 6,000 additional HP can be restored in this manner

Constellation 1 For Flexible Burst

With Constellation 1: Multi-Task no Jutsu can be a very much flexible burst for Sayu as she will simultaneously be giving damage towards the opponents and heal her team at the same time.

Constellation 2 Removing Split Scaling

With her Constellation 6, Sayu's Daruma will benefit more from each point of her Elemental Mastery. Giving her an amazing boost of damage ATK and also a good increase in healing towards her team, which is making her more powerful and easier to build.

what is this website on hello, why build EM if ur carrying ER weapons... unless u have c6 Sayu, her burst only heals based on atk, and the skill only heals based on EM. the new claymore from windblume is great for her, u can use atk/atk/hb or em/atk/hb on her. just make sure to get ER in substats.

reply to anon 13

well since baron bunny can attract enemies, i guess it's count to cc

kai 12

kai 11

''swirl no crit'' then that means that the favonius greatsword is also kinda useless... time to give her the sealord back -shrug-
