The best weapon for Sayu

Sayu is a small character from Genshin Impact which functions as a healer. However, unlike other childish characters, the little Ninja has enough strength to wield a large Claymore. It’s quite curious considering that she spends her time sleeping and hiding from her responsibilities. But it seems that having a vision grants so much power after all.

Not only healing, but since Sayu is also an Anemo character, she can also serve as a debuff in the team. If players equip the Ninja with the 4-Viridescent Venerer Artifacts, his skill and shard will continuously reduce the enemy’s elemental resistance as long as he triggers Swirl. Unfortunately, while this all sounds good on paper, Sayu has a conflicting build before players own his C6. Ninja’s Elemental Burst healing scales with ATK while its passive healing scales with Elemental Mastery. So before completing Sayu Constellations, people should go for ATK or Energy Recharge weapons. Bur after C6, then the Elemental Mastery build is the best fit. When it comes to Sayu’s best weapons in Genshin Impacthere are some good examples.

Best 5 Star Weapons For Sayu In Genshin Impact

Even as a healer support, a 5-star Claymore still works beautifully on Sayu. Skyward Pride and Wolf’s Gravestones are great choices for the Ninja.

Pride to the sky

  • Basic statistics: 674 Basic ATK
  • Secondary stats: 36% energy recharge
  • Effect R1 (in-game description): Increases all Dmg by 8%. After using an Elemental Burst, a Normal or Charged Attack creates a Vacuum Blade that deals 80% ATK as Dmg to opponents in its path. Lasts 20 seconds or 8 vacuum blades.

Skyward Pride is the best weapon Sayu can use Genshin Impact. The high base ATK along with his Energy Recharge secondary stat allows Sayu to continuously use his Elemental Burst, providing as much healing as possible. Unfortunately, the Claymore passive is mostly useless on the Shuumatsuban Ninja.

wolf tombstone

  • Basic statistics: 608 Base Attack
  • Secondary stats: 49.6% ATK
  • Effect R1 (in-game description): Increases Atk by 20%. On hit, attacks against opponents with less than 30% HP increase the ATK of all party members by 40% for 12s. Can only occur once every 30 seconds.

Wolf’s Gravestone is one of the best Claymores in Genshin Impact. The weapon is simple but has great power that benefits the whole team. Sayu with Wolf’s Gravestone will have another support ability where she adds 40% ATK or her entire team.

Best 4 Star Weapons For Sayu In Genshin Impact

For the 4-Star Claymore, players have several choices. They can opt for the Energy Recharge stat, Energy-generating talents, or just focus on Elemental Mastery.

Katsuragikiri Nagamasa

  • Basic statistics: Base ATK 510
  • Secondary stats: 45.9% energy recharge
  • Effect R1 to R5 (in-game description): Increases elemental skill damage by 6% (12%). After the elemental skill hits an opponent, the character loses 3 energy but regenerates 3 (5) energy every 2 seconds for the next 6 seconds. This effect can occur once every 10s. Can be triggered even when the character is not on the field.

Katsuragikiri Nagamasa is an excellent weapon for supports in Genshin Impact. At R5, the weapon fills 15 energy for its wielder at a cost of 3. With this Claymore, Sayu will easily have his Burst ready.

Favonius Greatsword

  • Basic statistics: 454 Basic ATK
  • Secondary stats: 61.3% energy recharge
  • Effect R1 to R5 (in-game description): CRIT hits have a 60% (100%) chance to generate a small amount of elemental particles, which will regenerate 6 energy for the character. Can only occur once every 12s (6s).

Favonius weapons will always be an obvious choice for most support characters. With the many support abilities Sayu offers her teammates, she might as well be the Genshin Impact Battery too. However, note that Favonius’ passive will only work on critical hits, so the Ninja will need a bit of critical rate.

Sacrificial Greatsword

  • Basic statistics: 565 Base ATK
  • Secondary stats: 30.6% energy recharge
  • Effect R1 to R5 (in-game description): After dealing damage to an opponent with an elemental skill, the skill has a 40% (80%) chance to end its own CD. Can only occur once every 30s (16s).

While it’s not the best weapon for Sayu, Sacrificial Greatsword is still good enough to allow her to perform her skill twice and generates double the particles she usually makes. Additionally, the Sacrificial Greatsword has a high base ATK which can slightly increase Sayu’s healing.


  • Basic statistics: Base ATK 510
  • Secondary stats: 165 Elemental Mastery
  • Effect R1 to R5 (in-game description): Increases damage against opponents affected by Hydro or Electro by 20% (36%).

Rainslasher works perfectly on Sayu with his Sixth Constellations unlocked in Genshin Impact. The weapon’s passive, elemental mastery addition, and decent base ATK all play a part in adding more damage and healing to Sayu’s abilities.

Genshin Impact is now available on Mobile, PC, PS4 and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
