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 & Defense

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.

Uses Of Sayu's Elemental Burst

Burst Heals & Deals Damage

Click to Enlarge

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.

Strengths Of Sayu

3rd Passive Greatly Helps With Material Farming

When you have Sayu in your team, insects and animals such as Crystalflies and Crabs will not be startled unless you interact with them making farming for Crystal Cores a breeze.

Great At Breaking Elemental Shields

Sayu's Elemental Skill absorbs an element and is able to trigger multiple reactions at once using it. If used properly, it can be easily used to break shields of Abyss Mages and other Elemental Shields.

Weaknesses Of Sayu

Split-Scales With ATK% And Elemental Mastery

The healing and damage of Sayu, unfortunately, scales on two stats forcing players to choose between healing and damage. This problem, however, can be solved by unlocking the final constellation of Sayu effectively making Sayu scale on Elemental Mastery only.

Needs Energy Recharge For Consistent Burst

Sayu's Elemental Burst requires 80 Energy to activate. While Sayu can produce plenty of energy through her skill, it is not enough to have consistent up-time for burst. To solve this, equipping an energy recharge weapon is recommended.

Sayu Story Overview

A Young Ninja That's Always Sleepy

Helped To Gather Information Against The Kujou Clan

When the corruption in the Kujou Clan has come to light, the Traveler and Yae Miko require evidence to show Kujou Sara. It's Sayu who infiltrates the Kujou clan and gathers the evidence for them.

Voicelines About Sayu

Voicelines About Sayu
YoimiyaYoimiyaLet me know if you see her, alright? I'd really love to take her to one of the festivals and introduce her to lots of new friends. She always looks a little down, but if she meets some people she can hang out with, maybe she'll slowly pick herself up again!
AyakaAyakaAh, little Sayu. She hasn't been causing you any trouble lately, has she? Hehe, if you ever notice her slacking off, please let me know
IttoItto All I did was give her a little pat on the head this one time when she wasn't looking, and now, she pounces to attack every time she lays eyes on me. Haha, what can I say? Tanuki are adorable! What am I supposed to do — not pat one on the head? ...Oh yeah, and that's the other thing — she beats you up for calling her a tanuki, too! What's up with that? I mean, a tanuki's what she's going for, right? Sheesh, talk about getting your fur all ruffled over nothing...
GorouGorouHmm, according to our intel, she is a ninja proficient in the art of infiltration — a skill set which could prove very useful in some of Her Excellency's special operations... However, our intel also indicates that she could be difficult to recruit as she is rather unruly, and often disappears without a trace. Hmm? She's with the Yashiro Commission? Oh, well forget it then.
