In this Sucrose Genshin Impact guide, I’ll be going over a character who can prove extremely helpful in elemental reaction teams and provides an elemental mastery team buff for massive reaction potential.
Sucrose was one of my earliest 4-star characters. To this day, I use her in various situations to break through difficult situations. Let’s dive in!
Featuring various characters, Genshin Impact has characters that have access to unique elements. Being from a specific element, characters in Genshin Impact possess a particular set of abilities called elemental skill and elemental burst.
Players need to spend quite a time understanding the mechanics of characters to opt for optimal gameplay that can help them clear the game’s content. While this is not a tedious task, it isn’t the easiest.
Every character has an ability that doesn’t clash with other Genshin characters. Players have to make a team where characters can synergize well with each other’s abilities.
While players have options to opt for physical damage or mono element teams to clear the content, team with amplifying reactions can also compete in massive damage comparison.
Depending on the elemental mastery, amplifying reactions can help you clear any content like a hot knife over butter.
Sucrose: Character Details
Sucrose is a 4-star anemo catalyst user from Knights of Favonius, specializing in utilizing anemo elements’ powers. She serves as an assistant to Albedo, whose area of focus is “bio-alchemy.” She spends her time researching different subjects related to her field.
Sucrose was one of my earliest 4-star characters, and to this day, I’m using her in my main team compositions. She is pretty good in team compositions that can benefit from amplifying reactions because of her ability to boost party members’ elemental mastery.
If you don’t know about Elemental mastery, I’ll highly recommend you go over its guide on our site. Elemental mastery can play a crucial role in some situations in the abyss, and Sucrose’s abilities being crowd-control focused, you can benefit from both of them. Sucrose is quite good at providing team support and crowd control and benefits from swirl reactions.
When I’m clearing spiral abyss content, I prefer to use elemental reaction teams because of their versatile team comp options. I tend to keep at least one anemo character in both of my teams to benefit from the Viridescent Veneer artifact set and shred enemies’ elemental resistance.
This helps me deal more damage to enemies and see beautiful damage numbers. I’m all in when it comes to colours and love seeing different damage numbers popping up on the screen.
Sucrose: Character Availability
Sucrose has been featured in several banners throughout the game and recently alongside Kamisato Ayato and Venti in their respective banners. Sucrose is also available in the Standard Wanderlust Invocation banner and Beginner’s wish banner.
The beginners’ wish banner is available from the start of the game. You can wish on it to get Noelle as a guaranteed character with a chance to get other characters and weapons.
Sucrose is primarily available in all character events and weapon event wishes, and players can quickly obtain her extra constellations. I got Sucrose’s constellations while I was in mid-game and started investing in her.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t know how to use her back then and focused on building DPS sucrose after watching some youtube videos. Now, I’m all in for elemental mastery Sucrose because of her passive’s potency in boosting elemental reaction damage.
Whenever you start to play, you will likely be able to get Sucrose from many character banners, standard banners, and weapons banners. And if you like to play Sucrose, you can save up some acquaint or intertwined fates to wish on banners that feature her alongside other 4-star characters. Maybe you can get a 5-star character and Sucrose in one multi-pull?
Sucrose’s ascension stat is an Anemo damage bonus that can help you to opt for a damage-dealing role on her. When it comes to anemo characters, you should always level them up as swirl damage is relative to character level and elemental mastery.
So, suppose you want to build Sucrose with a complete elemental mastery build. In that case, you should level her up to level 90 to take the most benefit from swirl damage with the Viridescent Veneer artifact set. Sucrose can gain up to 24% anemo damage bonus on reaching level 90.
I will recommend you perform for characters you want to level up, and when their banner drops, you can wish on them and pump in all your resources. Some of my friends prefer to farm after getting a character, while others like me prefer to pre-farm to use them in the abyss.
Whatever approach you choose, keep in mind that you’ll need to keep aside a few days for farming as talent materials drop on certain days or Sundays for all materials.
Lets’ go over different attack talents, and I’ll give my short remarks on how useful they are in certain situations. I’ll round off the stats in ability tables to their nearest values for better understanding.
Normal Attack: Wind Spirit Creation
- Normal Attack: Performing up to 4 attacks with Wind spirits to deal Anemo damage
- Charged Attack: Consumes a set amount of stamina and deals area of effect anemo damage after a short casting period.
- Plunging Attack: Sucrose calls upon the power of her Wind Spirits, Sucrose plunges towards the ground from mid-air, damaging all enemies in her path. Deals area of effect anemo damage upon impact with the ground
Sucrose’s standard attack isn’t as potent as her charged attack when dealing with anemo damage. If you are trying to build Sucrose for the damage-dealing role, you can prioritize to level up this talent.
Her regular attack can be used to trigger swirl so that other team members can benefit from the elemental mastery boost.
Elemental skill: Astable Anemohypostasis Creation – 6308
Sucrose’s Elemental skill focuses on applying crowd control to lightweight enemies and dealing area-wide damage simultaneously.
Deployables like Klee’s bombs or Baron bunny can also be pulled towards the centre using this elemental skill.
Elemental burst: Forbidden Creation – Isomer 75 / Type II
Sucrose hurls an unstable concoction that creates an immense wind spirit. While it persists, the significant wind spirit will continuously pull in surrounding opponents and objects, launch nearby opponents and deal anemo damage.
Suppose the Wind Spirit comes into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro energy. In that case, it will deal additional elemental damage of that type. Elemental Absorption may only occur once per use.
|Additional Elemental DMG||44%||47%||51%||55%||58%||62%||66%||70%||75%||79%||84%||88%||93%||99%||104%|
Sucrose’s elemental burst is quite helpful when she’s on higher constellations, as you can benefit from additional buffs. Her burst is effective if you have a character with the same element as the infused element. You can throw this elemental burst group up enemies at a single point and deal anemo damage with each tick.
Both Sucrose’s elemental skill and elemental burst are area-wide attacks and allow you to cover a lot of space on the battlefield. You also get additional elemental damage over time on infusion with burst damage. After unlocking her passive, you can use Sucrose’s elemental burst to buff up team members’ elemental mastery.
Every character in Genshin Impact has some extra passive abilities that unlock as you ascend them beyond certain levels. Let’s go over some of Sucrose’s passive talents to better understand them.
When Sucrose crafts a Character or a Weapon enhancement material, she has a 10% chance of obtaining double the product.
Throughout the game, you will be crafting a lot of materials. If you have Sucrose, you can benefit from this passive to obtain extra crafting items. Whenever I’m on the crafting table, I switch to Sucrose for crafting characters’ materials for levelling up talents.
When Sucrose triggers a swirl reaction, all members in the team with the matching element ( excluding Sucrose) have their elemental mastery increased by 50 points for 8 s
You can trigger swirl with Sucrose normal attack as well. This will help you buff your character’s elemental mastery if they are from the element that got swirled. Not much of a massive boost, but something is better than having nothing.
When Sucrose’s elemental skill Astable Anemohypostasis creation – 6308 or elemental burst Forbidden Creation – Isomer 75/ Type II hits an enemy, it increases all party members ( excluding Sucrose) Elemental mastery by an amount equal to 20% of Sucrose’s elemental mastery for 8 seconds
This passive is bread and butter for Sucrose’s abilities because you can purely build Sucrose based on Elemental Mastery and buff your team member’s elemental mastery relative to her total elemental mastery. I’ve personally built my Sucrose for pure Elemental mastery build. She helps to hit my character’s massive damage numbers in amplifying reaction teams.
You can obtain a constellation only if you get another copy of the same character. Call constellations like additional buffs that have permanent changes to your character and enhance their overall abilities. Sucrose’s constellations are suitable for her abilities and can prove potent on the battlefield.
C1: Clustered Vacuum Field
Astable Anemohypostasis Creation – 6308 gains one additional charge
This constellation is a must-have before using Sucrose on the battlefield. You get two charges on her elemental skill that can help you generate more energy particles and crowd control enemies simultaneously. Combine this with Sacrificial fragments; you have a chance to get 3 charges on a skill that can help you generate a lot of energy particles to recharge the burst back faster.
C2: Beth: Unbound Form
The time duration of Forbidden Creation – Isomer 75/ Type II is increased by 2s.
A small addition to the duration of elemental burst can help crowd control and damage enemies for a few other tricks.
C3: Flawless Alchemistress
Increases the talent level of Astable anemohypostasis creation – 6308 by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15
Helps to boost up the damage done by elemental skill to the enemies. Not much of a massive upgrade, but it still synergizes with Sucrose’s anemo damage bonus ascension stat.
Sucrose will reduce the cooldown of Astable anemohypostasis creation – 6308 by 1-7 s for every 7 regular or charged attack hits she scores against enemies. One hit may be counted every 0.1 s
This is one of the best constellations for her when it comes to reducing the cooldown of elemental skill. You can switch to Sucrose and combine regular and charged attacks to reduce the cooldown of elemental skill.
Combining this with her C1 and Sacrificial Fragments, you can get almost 3-4 charges on her elemental skill.
C5: Caution: Standard Flask
Increases the talent level of forbidden Creation – Isomer 75/ Type II by 3. The maximum upgrade level is 15
This constellation will help you benefit from the elemental burst damage boost and better elemental damage over time on infusion.
C6: Chaotic Entropy
Suppose Forbidden Creation: Isomer 75/ Type II triggers an elemental absorption. In that case, all party members gain a 20% elemental damage bonus for the corresponding absorbed element during its duration.
Sucrose’s elemental burst can absorb an element, and after unlocking this constellation, you can obtain an extra elemental damage bonus. Sometimes, I use Raiden Shogun with Sucrose and throw her burst before using Raiden’s burst to benefit from this constellation.
I use Raiden Shogun’s elemental skill and throw Sucrose’s elemental burst to have absorbed Electro element and then switch to Raiden Shogun’s elemental burst.
- Original Food: Crab, Ham and Veggie Bake
- Effect: Revives the selected character and restores 20% of max HP, then restores an additional 1500 HP
- Recipe: Crab Roe x 1, Ham x 1 , Cream x 1 , Cabbage x 1
You can make this dish to use for recovery purposes, but the issue is that you need to have processed ingredients. Except for Cabbage, you need to process other ingredients, which will consume real-world time.
You can create this dish just for collection purposes and keep another dish on the NRE menu for quick healing. I prefer to keep Sweet Madame in my NRE menu to heal my characters, and it works like a charm.
These are the ascension materials you need when you want to ascend Sucrose to level 90 and invest in her for the long run.
I would suggest you focus more on farming overworld materials once in a while because you may need them from time to time.
Suppose you want to build Sucrose as team support. In that case, you can pause to invest in her talents, as elemental mastery doesn’t depend on talent level.
But, I’ll still recommend you to level up elemental skill and elemental burst to take benefit from extra damage.
|Vayuda Turquoise Sliver = 1||Whopperflower Nectar = 18||Windwheel Aster = 168|
|Vayuda Turquoise Fragment = 9||Shimmering Nectar = 30||Mora = 2,092,530|
|Vayuda Turquoise Chunk = 9||Energy Nectar = 36|
|Vayuda Turquoise Gemstone = 6||Hurricane Seed = 46|
|Material for Single Talent|
|Teachings of Freedom = 3||Whopperflower Nectar = 6||Crown of Insight = 1|
|Shimmering Nectar = 22||Mora = 1.6+ million|
|Guide to Freedom = 21||Energy Nectar = 31|
|Philosophies of Freedom = 38||Spirit Locket of Boreas = 6|
On top of having these materials, you need around 420 + Hero’s Wits and 1.6 + million mora to level up Sucrose from level 1 to level 90. Genshin Impact requires players to farm many materials when investing in the characters, whether it’s levelling up character levels or talent levels.
Let’s go over different artifact sets that you can use to build Sucrose.
- 2-piece set bonus: Increases anemo damage bonus by 15%
- 4-piece set bonus: Increases swirl damage bonus by 60% and decreases enemies’ elemental resistance to the element infused in the swirl reaction by 40% for 10 s.
Viridescent Venerer is generally the first choice for equipping artifacts on Anemo characters because of the elemental shred 4-piece bonus it brings to the table. You get an increase in swirl damage with elemental shred that increases the amount of elemental damage your characters deal.
Remember that you can only shred resistance if you anemo characters swirl other elements while being on-field. If you swirl multiple elements, each element will have a separate timer. Overall, this set increases anemo damage and swirl damage utility to your character.
- 2-piece set bonus: Increases elemental mastery by 80
- 4-piece set bonus: Increases charged attack damage by 35% if the character is using a bow weapon or a catalyst.
You can use this set if you want to deal damage to enemies with Sucrose’s charged attack. 2-piece set bonus will add up elemental mastery and increase overall swirl damage as it scales with elemental mastery. A 4-piece set bonus will help to boost up your charged attack damage, and you can go with offensive artifact stats.
Viridescent Venerer + Wanderer’s Troupe
- 2-piece Viridescent Venerer: Increases anemo damage bonus by 15%
- 2-piece Wanderer’s Troupe: Increases elemental mastery by 80
This artifact combination mixes anemo damage bonus and extra elemental mastery. You will gain anemo damage bonus from the Viridescent venerer set and extra elemental mastery from Wanderer’s Troupe. So, it’s workable for both damage dealing and team-support roles; however, I’ll still recommend a 4-piece Viridescent Venerer set.
- 2-piece set bonus: Increases elemental mastery by 80
- 4-piece set bonus: Upon triggering an elemental reaction, all party members’ elemental mastery increases by 120 for 8 s.
This artifact set is good if you are in the early game and want to benefit from amplifying the reaction’s damage. Overall, this set will highly benefit you if you are in the early game and want a reaction-based team composition. But note that you will need another anemo character with Viridescent Venerer set to shred elemental resistance from enemies to deal more elemental damage.
The best slot artifact set would be Viridescent Venerer, whether you want to play Sucrose in a damage-dealing or team-support role. If you want to go with a damage-dealing role, then attack% on Sands, Anemo damage bonus on Goblet, and CRIT ratio on Circlet would be optimal.
You can also go with a complete elemental mastery build to benefit from Sucrose’s passive to share 20% of total elemental mastery with team members.
This will help you deal with increased damage with amplifying or transformative reactions. Also, a boost in elemental mastery helps in increasing swirl damage, so with a 4-piece Viridescent Venerer artifact set, you get a hybrid combination of team-support and damage role.
You can play Sucrose in two different roles: damage dealing and Team support. While most of Sucrose’s kit is focused on elemental mastery, her ascension stat bonus is anemo damage.
This allows you to play her in either of the roles and take the most benefit from her playstyle. Personally, I’ll recommend you go for the team-support role because she can be pretty helpful in that role even in a low-investment build.
The damage dealing role will require you to invest better support characters with her to keep the team rotation going and optimal gameplay.
Main anemo DPS – Sucrose Xingqiu Beidou Fischl
When I was at the start of the game, I used to play Sucrose as the primary damage dealer, and she was one of my early-game characters.
Sucrose is decent if you want to play her as the primary damage dealer, but she requires a lot of investment and good off-field damage dealers to fill up the DPS loss.
You can benefit from the Viridescent Venerer set and deal better damage however, I recommend you focus more on a team-support role because she can shine pretty well there.
Having used this team composition, I would say if you are not against corrosion enemies, you can clear out enemies quite fast with this team composition. I recommend having better constellations on the above characters to utilize better buffs.
The main proof of this team composition is that all characters are 4-star characters and give you better area damage. Sucrose will focus on shredding elemental resistance, Fischl, and Xingqiu for off-field damage and Beidou for area-wide damage.
Also, you can benefit from Electro elemental resonance that helps generate an electro elemental particle on superconducting, overload, and electro-charged reactions.
Another benefit of electro elemental resonance is being able to resist hydro application on your character. You will be affected by hydro for 4o% less time and able to generate electro elemental particles every 5 seconds.
Team-support – Hu Tao Xingqiu Flex Sucrose
This role will focus more on building as much elemental mastery possible on Sucrose. You should focus on having Elemental mastery as the main stat on Sands on Eon, Goblet of Eonothem, and Circlet of Logos.
Though getting elemental mastery on three artifact items depends on RNG, the possibility of getting them may depend on how lucky you are.
Eventually, I reached the late game. I started playing her to support the team’s elemental mastery because it was helpful to trigger amplifying reactions that could produce a maximum amount of damage.
With tons of elemental mastery, she can trigger swirl reactions that deal much damage to enemies and clear content pretty fast.
In this team, depending on your characters, you can either use a shield character or a pyro character to shred the pyro on enemies before using Hu Tao’s abilities.
Sucrose will help provide an overall elemental mastery buff to the characters and help increase the damage potential of Vaporize, which is an amplifying reaction.
Xingqiu can provide off-field damage, damage reduction, and minor healing to the characters. A shielder can tank incoming damage.
Having an extra Pyro character here like Thoma, Xinyan or Amber will help you to take benefit from Pyro elemental resonance. Your attack will increase by 25%, and you will be affected by cryo for 40% less time.
Freeze – Hydro Sucrose Cryo Flex
To fight Abyss lecters in the current abyss, I opted for a team that helped me keep them frozen and deal damage simultaneously.
In the second chamber, I used Ayato, Sucrose, Rosaria, and Chongyun to defeat the triple lectors, Pyro, electro, and Hydro. And both hydro heralds in the last chamber successfully clear the 36-star abyss mark.
The main takeaway from this team composition is to use a team where you can take benefit from Hydro and Cryo to immobilize the enemies by keeping them in frozen status.
If you want to have a healer, you can either replace Sucrose or use Diona in the flex slot for the team. Overall, this freeze team helped me clear spiral abyss chambers, and Sucrose is quite good if you know how to use her.
Melt – Ganyu Bennett Xiangling Sucrose
Although this team may seem unusual, you have to use Ganyu more like a hybrid role of support and damage. You can use her elemental burst to summon icicles and Xiangling’s to trigger melt or reverse melt reactions.
I won’t go into brief details on what is triggering melt and reverse melt. The main point of building this team is to boost up the team’s elemental mastery with the help of Sucrose and trigger melt, which is an amplifying reaction dealing double damage.
On top of melt reaction, you can benefit from Pyro elemental resonance that will help you reduce the time affected by Hydro by 40% less time and increases attack by 25%.
I used this team to tackle the perpetual mechanical array, and it seemed to perform exceptionally well damage-wise. After using all character’s elemental bursts a few times, I was able to trigger melt with Ganyu’s charged shots, and damage was over 100k for a C0 Ganyu with Prototype crescent.
Mono-Element – Raiden Sucrose Fischl Bennett
The mono-element team focuses on dealing with a single type of elemental damage to the enemies. With the Viridescent Venerer set, you cannot shred Geo elemental resistance from enemies, so you can build teams that focus on dealing with mono-elemental damage.
You can opt for characters like Raiden, who can charge elemental bursts, Fischl and Beidou for off-field electro damage, and Sucrose to shred elemental resistance.
Ultimately, it depends on the kind of elemental damage team you want to build and keep characters who can fulfil that role. Another option here can be Ganyu, Rosaria, Sucrose, and Diona, which can help fill DPS, support, and healer roles.
I recommend you experiment with your characters and see which mono-element team comp fits your needs. Sucrose’s role in the mono-element team is to shred elemental resistance from enemies.
Team composition Summary
While making teams with Sucrose, you should focus on her abilities and passives that can help you to boost up the overall team’s potential. If you ask me, her passive to share 2o% of elemental mastery with the team is quite underrated.
Many players ignore the benefits of elemental mastery and how it can enhance your character’s damage potential. Genshin impact is all about elemental reactions, proven from overworld mechanisms like puzzles, seelies, and various totems.
I recommend you go through the elemental mastery guide to know more about it and see how you can make versatile team comps for your account.
This will save you some time to invest in characters that are currently off the meta and focus on characters that can take benefit of each other’s abilities in the spiral abyss.
Let’s go over different weapons you can use on Sucrose and see what role they fit in the team composition. Depending on the situational requirements, you can use these weapons and clear out the content the game has to offer.
Skyward Atlas features a high base attack with ATK% as a secondary stat. The passive will help you increase the elemental damage bonus and add up some extra attacks as physical damage to the enemies.
If you are using Sucrose as the main DPS, this weapon will help you deal more anemo damage and synergize well with her overall build.
Kagura’s Verity was recently introduced as Yae Miko’s featured weapon, which focuses on elemental skill and CRIT damage as a secondary stat.
The more you trigger your elemental skill, the better chance you have to increase the elemental damage bonus with stacks.
Having Sucrose on a Higher constellation will help you trigger her elemental skill two times and reduce the cooldown of elemental skill with charged or regular attacks.
You can build damage-dealing Sucrose with this weapon and play her as the main damage dealer.
Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds is actually a go-to choice for building damage-dealing catalyst users. Featuring CRIT rate as a secondary stat, this weapon’s passive is a complete package of movement speed buff and elemental damage bonus.
The character will stack up elemental damage bonus over time on the battlefield. It lasts until the character leaves the battlefield or dies in combat. Ideal for a damage-dealing Sucrose, you can equip this weapon on her and use her as your primary damage dealer.
The Widsith is one of the best 4-star catalyst weapons that can rival some 5-star options. It features CRIT damage as its secondary stats. It includes three different passive buffs that can trigger depending on the RNG.
Characters can benefit from the passives and increase their ATK%, elemental damage bonus, or elemental mastery.
While two of three passive effects are suited for a damage-dealing Sucrose, the third is oriented towards a team-support Sucrose that needs elemental mastery.
Solar Pearl is a battle pass weapon you can get after purchasing the battle pass and unlocking level 30 of the battle pass. This weapon features CRIT rate as its secondary stat.
The passive will help you increase elemental skill or elemental burst damage. On top of that, if you use your elemental skill or elemental burst, your average attack damage will also increase.
This is more suited for players that want to play Sucrose as the primary damage dealer.
Oathsworn eye features ATK% as a secondary stat and a passive that helps you increase energy recharge rate after using an elemental skill.
If you want to use Sucrose to use her burst often, this weapon can be pretty handy and help you get elemental burst back faster.
It’s better to use this weapon if you have C1 Sucrose because you have two charges for elemental skill after unlocking the first constellation.
Mappa Mare features Elemental mastery as its secondary stat, and its passive helps you gain an elemental damage bonus. The elemental damage bonus is dependent on a condition that the character has to trigger an elemental reaction.
With 2 stacks as the highest count of elemental damage stacks, you can get a better damage bonus with higher refinements.
Sacrificial Fragments is one of the best 4-star options for team-support Sucrose. This weapon features elemental mastery as its secondary stat and offers a chance to reset the cooldown of elemental skill over a short duration of time; with higher refinements, the cooldown time decrease along with the percentage chance to reset the cooldown.
You can benefit from the overall elemental mastery boost. With the help of Sucrose’s passive to buff team members’ elemental mastery, you can produce massive damage numbers in amplifying reactions.
If you have C1 Sucrose, then with this weapon, you have a chance to trigger her elemental skill three times in a row.
This is quite helpful because you can apply crowd control to different groups of enemies and generate energy particles to get your burst back faster.
Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers
Thrilling Tales of Dragonslayers is a three-star weapon that can help you to boost your character’s attack by 48% on maximum refinement.
You can benefit from Sucrose’s elemental shred from Viridescent Venerer and pump up extra attack% to the switched character.
This weapon is mainly used in combats. The team focuses on boosting hyper carry to one-shot enemies and opts for very aggressive gameplay. You can clear any content in the spiral abyss with better team rotation.
I’ll say Sucrose is quite a versatile character who can use various weapons to make the best use of her abilities. Your weapons choice depends on the playstyle you want to use her in.
Whether it’s primary damage-dealing oriented or elemental mastery buff oriented, you have plenty of weapon options you can take.
In the case of 4-star weapons, the chance to refine them is higher, and you can build Sucrose in a way that 4-star weapons can compete with 5-star options.
Question: Is there any constellation you recommend for Sucrose?
Answer: Sucrose’s first constellation is the least you should have to take the most benefit out of her abilities. After unlocking her first constellation, you will get two charges for her elemental skill and be able to generate more particles as well. Most of her constellations are pretty good as you get more copies of her. Unlike some characters whose constellations aren’t potent enough, Sucrose’s constellations are always an additional boost for her abilities.
Question: How good is Sucrose in the spiral abyss?
Answer: Sucrose is quite good in team compositions where you can trigger many reactions. Pairing Sucrose with Xingqiu, Fischl, Xiangling, or Bennett can be considered a viable option. Depending on the requirements, you can have other off-field DPS to counter the enemies and have better synergy between the characters.
I’ll recommend having at least one elemental resonance to get an additional buff while making a team composition. Unless you really need all unique elements, it’s better to benefit from the elemental resonance buff and have a more optimized team composition to clear the floors.
Question: Should I use Sucrose or Kaehara Kazuha, or Venti?
Answer: A lot of times, players try to compare these characters based on their crowd control abilities. But, I would say that all of these characters have different abilities. Depending on the situation, you can use specific characters. Venti helps provide crowd control abilities, whereas Kazuha’s kit can help boost elemental damage.
So, I recommend you learn about these characters before deciding which character you should start building up. I suggest you go over character guides on the site to know more about these characters in detail.
Question: What’s your approach while building a team for the spiral abyss?
Answer: The first thing that I keep in mind while building a team for the spiral abyss is to have elemental resonance. I want to benefit from as many additional bonuses as possible. I cater to characters that can provide overall team bonuses like Sucrose.
Taking an example of my C6 Sucrose, I can utilize her in any elemental reaction team or mono-elemental team except geo to deal a massive amount of damage. I use her with off-field damage dealers; Sucrose will shine in dealing area-wide damage. But she may fall off to deal damage to single enemies like Maguu Kenki.
The second thing I do is see what kind of enemies I will be dealing with. Suppose there are enemies like Hilichurls that can be grouped in Sucrose’s elemental burst. In that case, she can quickly clear out that floor and save the elemental bursts of other team members. I prefer not to overkill the use of elemental bursts and skills because I may need them in upcoming chambers for tankier enemies.
Overall, I’ll try to make your team according to the enemies you will face and keep investing in characters you have higher constellations on.
Sucrose is a fantastic support character who can also be played in a damaged role. As you approach the end-game, you will have to invest heavily in your characters to deal massive damage to clear the spiral abyss.
Sucrose shines well in providing an elemental mastery buff to her teammates that can help team members to hit a massive amount of damage with amplifying reactions.
I’ve been playing Sucrose in a team-support role for quite a long time, and on some floors, pairing her up with off-field characters that can help in reactions turned out quite well.
There were some spiral abyss runs where I used her, and she quickly helped me clear the most challenging floors. A little disclaimer that there was spiral abyss blessing going on back then favoured anemo characters.
Still, she’s an excellent character who can help you achieve massive damage and crowd control enemies simultaneously.
That was all from my end, and I recommend you go over other character guides, weapons guides, or general guides to know more about the game and increase your knowledge database.
