Skills for Sayu Support Build in Genshin Impact
Sayu’s Normal attack is called Shuumatsuban Ninja Blade and its effects are:
- Normal Attack: Performs up to 4 consecutive strikes.
- Charged Attack: Drains Stamina over time to perform continuous spinning attacks against all nearby opponents. At the end of the sequence, perform a more powerful slash.
- Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies along the path and dealing AOE DMG upon impact.
Her Elemental Skill, Yoohoo Art: Fuuin Dash, is a special charge attack, that deals Anemo Damage to enemies. When its duration ends, it unleashes a Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick that deals AOE Anemo damage. If you Hold the skill, Sayu will roll continuously with increased resistance to interruption. You can control her direction and unleash a stronger Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick. This version of the skill has a maximum duration of 10 seconds and triggers Elemental Absorption. With Elemental Absorption active, when Sayu comes into contact with Hydro, Pyro, Cryo and Electro, she deals additional elemental damage of that type. This effect can occur only once per use of the skill.
Her Elemental Burst, Yoohoo Art: Mujina Flurry, is what makes Sayu a good Support character. It deals Anemo Damage to nearby opponents, heals party members but also summons a partner, the Muji-Muji Daruma. At specific intervals, Daruma will take a specific action:
- If the HP of nearby characters is above 70%, it will attack a nearby opponent with Anemo damage.
- But if there are active characters with 70% or less HP nearby, it will heal the active character with the lowest HP left. If there are no opponents nearby it will heal active characters nearby even if they have 70% HP or more.
