The 2.0 Genshin Impact "The Immutable God and Eternal Euthymia" brought tons of new features to the game such as the beginnings of the Inazuma region, as well as a lot of content like weapons and banners, and most importantly, new characters.
With its Phase II about to begin, it will be time to say goodbye to Kamisato Ayaka from the game's limited banners, making way for the debut of two new characters from the Inazuma Archipelago.
While we've already featured the first of these two in our guide to 'Frolicking Flames' Yoimiya, the final 2.0 character is a bit more childish than her and Ayaka, but don't let her looks fool you, as she is very skilled adventurer who masters the art of ninjutsu. Let's talk about the "Mujina Ninja", Sayu.
Sayu – History and origins
During our trip to the Inazuma region we talked about nobility and creativity, and this time it will all be about loyalty. So, to learn more about Sayu, we'll have to look into the Shuumatsuban, a secret organization under the Yashiro Commission that few Inazumans are aware of.▶ »
Within the ranks of this clan we will find a little ninja called Sayu, a girl who has been raised in this group since childhood, mastering many techniques of evasion and aura concealment, while being one of the most faithful. members of the organization, though they only send him to do intel-gathering and theft missions.
Aside from her extreme loyalty, Sayu is best known for her lazy attitude, as she will go out of her way to spend more time on her most meaningful things, which is just another way of saying relax and sleep. There's a reason for this, as Sayu thinks the more you sleep, the more you grow, so don't try to play with that argument.
But even with her laziness, she has plenty of tricks up her sleeves thanks to her years of training in the arts of disguise, with many abilities at her disposal. So whenever you are in danger or in trouble, just try to learn something from Sayu, just be sure to bring rice balls for his helping hand.
Sayu – Talents
Her normal attack, Shuumatsuban Ninja Blade, allows Sayu to perform up to four consecutive strikes, while with her charged attack she can perform continuous spinning attacks against all nearby enemies draining stamina over time. time, ending with a more powerful slash.
With her elemental skill, Fuuin Dash, Sayu will cower into a rolling Fuufuu Windwheel and ram into her opponents at super high speed, inflicting Anemo DMG 473ur from her after a powerful kick.
If you hold this ability, Sayu will keep rolling for up to ten seconds, increasing his resistance to interrupts while triggering elemental absorption against all enemies hit. Once you are done mastering this skill or the time is up, Sayu will knock everyone out with a stronger kick.
Using his elemental burst, Mujina Flurry, Sayu will inflict Anemo DMG on all nearby enemies and heal all nearby party members based on Sayu's ATK, then summon a Muji-Muji Daruma.
At specific intervals, the Muji-Muji Daruma will attack a nearby opponent with Anemo DMG if the nearby characters' HP is above 70%, heals the active character with the lowest percentage of HP if the nearby characters' HP is 70% or less. , or heal all characters if there are no opponents nearby.
Sayu - Best Weapons
Pride to the sky
Starting with the best 5 star weapons for her, one of the best options you'll find is the Skyward Pride. This weapon is part of the Mondstadt series, symbolizing Dvalin's pride soaring in the skies. When swung, it emits a deep hum as the full force of Dvalin's command over the sky and wind is unleashed.
With his sky-ripping Dragon Spine passive, he can increase all DMG by 8/10/12/14/16%. And after using an elemental burst, normal or charged attack, on hit it will create a vacuum blade that deals 80/100/120/140/160% ATK as DMG to opponents along its path. This will last 20 seconds or eight vacuum blades.
Next we will find the Wolf Tombstone, a longsword used by the Wolf Knight originally forged from a heavy sheet of iron given to the Knight by a blacksmith in the city. According to legends, he became endowed with legendary power due to his friendship with wolves.
Powered by his Wolfish Tracker, Wolf's Gravestone increases ATK by 20/25/30/35/40%. On hit, attacks against opponents with less than 30% HP increase the ATK of all party members by 40/50/60/70/80% for 12 seconds. This effect can only occur once every 30 seconds.
Moving on to the best 4 star weapon, we will find one of the latest additions to the game's arsenal. The Katsuragikiri Nagamasa is an Inazuman blade crafted by one of Tatarasuna's inspectors, being a heavy Claymore with intricate details.
Thanks to its “Samurai Conduct” passive, this sword can increase elemental skill DMG by 6%. After an elemental skill hits an opponent, the character will lose 3 energy but regenerate 3 energy every two seconds for the next six seconds. This effect can occur once every ten seconds and can be triggered even when the character is not on the field.
As part of the Amethyst series, you can get the blueprint for this weapon after entering the Arsenal, unlocked by the Tatara Tales World Quest series. To forge it, you will need the Northlander Claymore Billet, 50 Amethyst, 50 Tin, and 500 Mora.
Sayu - Best Artifacts and Stats
As a primary choice for his Artifacts, we suggest the Viridescent Venerer set, as it will greatly increase the potency of your elemental skills giving you a 15% Anemo DMG bonus.
If you manage to get four pieces from this set, it will increase Whirlpool DMG by 60% and reduce your opponent's Elemental RES to Whirlwind-Infused Element by 40% for ten seconds.
Artifacts in this set can be obtained from the Valley of Remembrance estate, located between Dawn Cave and Dragon's Spine Mountain in Mondstadt.
For a second option, we'll recommend the Noblesse Oblige set, as it will greatly increase the power of her Elemental Burst by 20%, by having two pieces of this set.
However, if you manage to get four pieces from this set, using an Elemental Burst will increase the ATK of all party members by 20% for 12 seconds. This effect cannot stack.
As a reminder, the pieces in this set can be found in the Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern area of Liyue.
As for stats, they will be focused on harnessing his elemental abilities and increasing his damage and CRIT stats to become a great under-DPS combined with his support skills:
- Anemone DMG Bonus
- Elemental Mastery
- Healing bonus
- ATK plat
- Elemental Mastery
- Energy Refill
- CRIT DMG
- CRIT rate
Recommended team composition and release date
Sayu was created with the idea of becoming one of the best support characters in the entire game, thanks to the power of her elemental abilities, the damage she can deal, and the buffs she will create with the right weapon. and good artifacts.
So, to complement his playstyle, you can choose between the following characters depending on what suits you best for battle:
- Ganyu (Cryo),Kamisato Ayaka (Cryo),Razor (Electro) orKaeya (Cryo): Any of these adventurers can bring a lot of damage to the table, as the elemental reactions you can create with their abilities along with their fast strikes can become a DPS nightmare for any enemy.
- Twenty (Anemo)or Fischl (electro): These two arc characters will both serve as a safe way to do a lot of burst damage using their precise strikes and abilities, and also open a window for crowd control.
- Klee (Pyro) or Xiangling (Pyro): Combined with Venti or Fischl, the possibilities of powerful Elemental Reactions can be greatly increased.
- If you want to focus more on shielding and healing, you can also alternate your composition by putting either Zhongli (geo) or Diona (Cryo) in your party, as any of them can give better survivability, as well as buffs and debuffs.
And that's all we have to share with you about Sayu. Remember that she will only be available from August 10 to August 31 in the "Tapestry of Golden Flames" banner with Yoimiya's debut, so try to save as many Primogems as possible.
