Sucrose Best Team Comp

Sucrose can be a flexible character that can be slotted into any teams. She is an excellent Anemo support and grouper, which can be very beneficial to Elemental Reactions.

Driver Teams

Main-DPS (Driver) Sub-DPS Sub-DPS Support
Genshin - Sucrose Sucrose Genshin - Yae Miko Yae Miko Genshin - Yelan Yelan Genshin - Shinobu Shinobu
Genshin - Sucrose Sucrose Genshin - Nahida Nahida Genshin - Xingqiu Xingqiu Genshin - Shinobu Shinobu

In this team, Sucrose takes most of the field time enabling swirl and resistance shred while her teammates cause their respective elemental reactions with their abilities.

Unlike her supportive role, this requires Sucrose to have high amounts of Elemental Mastery to remain effective, so be sure to invest a little more into your Sucrose if using her as a Driver.

Vaporize Teams

Sub-DPS Main-DPS Sub-DPS Support
Genshin - Sucrose Sucrose Genshin - Tartaglia Tartaglia Genshin - Xiangling Xiangling Genshin - Bennett Bennett
Genshin - Sucrose Sucrose Genshin - Hu Tao Hu Tao Genshin - Yelan Yelan Genshin - Bennett Bennett

Sucrose acts as a grouper and shredder for the team, setting up her Main DPS to be able to deal increased Elemental Reaction damage to opponents.

Best Constellations Rating and Explanation

Rating Constellation Effect / Merits
C1 ★★☆ • Astable Anemohypostasis Creation - 6308 gains 1 additional charge.
C6 ★★★ • If Forbidden Creation - Isomer 75 / Type II triggers an Elemental Absorption, all party members gain a 20% Elemental DMG Bonus for the corresponding absorbed element during its duration.

C1 Great for Recovering Energy

Since Sucrose wants as much Elemental Mastery as she can get, having C1 can help Sucrose regain energy for her Elemental Burst. If you have Sacrificial Fragments, you'll only need to put Energy Recharge on your substats instead!

How to Use Sucrose

Boost Elemental Reactions

Sucrose Swirl Skill
Elemental Talents Boost Elemental Reactions

Sucrose specializes in boosting Elemental reactions with Anemo. Due to her Passive Talent, Mollis Favonius, using Sucrose's Elemental Skill or Burst will buff all other party member's Elemental Mastery by 20% of her own. This allows you to set up bigger, more potent Elemental Reactions with Sucrose!

In addition to this, Sucrose can group most enemies together for easier combat!

Since Sucrose's Elemental Skill uses charges similar to Klee, gaining the Elemental Mastery boost from her passive is not as dependent on the skill cooldown time as it can be triggered with each charge as well as her Elemental Burst.

Recommended Tactic for Switching Characters

Base Attack Pattern
Attack with the Elemental Skill of your Main DPS.
Switch to Sucrose and use her Elemental Skill to increase the party's Elemental Mastery.
Switch to another support character and use their Elemental Skill to induce Elemental Reactions.
Switch back to your Main DPS and use their Elemental Burst.
Do it within 8 seconds from ②.

To fully maximize Sucrose's skills, use a tactic that induces more Elemental Reactions while switching characters. Attack with your Main DPS' Elemental Skill then use Sucrose's Elemental Skill. Switch to a support character to use their Elemental Skill then use your Main DPS' Elemental Burst.

We recommend this tactic for a party that has Pyro, Hydro, Cryo, and Electro characters as members!

Use When Crafting Weapon Enhancement Materials

Genshin - Sucrose Passive Talent
Passive Talent: Astable Invention

Sucrose's Passive Skill, Astable Invention, grants a 10% chance of doubling the product when crafting Weapon Enhancement Materials.

Sucrose Does Not Buff Kazuha

Genshin - Sucrose Does Not Buff Kazuha

Sucrose's Passive Talent, Mollis Favonius, grants bonus Elemental Mastery to the rest of the party equal to 20% of Sucrose's Elemental Mastery.

However, according to the June 30, 2021 Developer's Discussion, this buff does not apply to Kazuha, as the only exception. It was explained that this is to avoid infinite stacking of stat bonuses.

Thoughts About Sucrose

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Albedo ImageAlbedo Direction: Sucrose? I think I more or less understand why she is so dedicated to her research in bio-alchemy... Either way, I'm happy to see her succeed more and more in her endeavors.
Habits: Working with Sucrose on alchemy research is quite pleasant, but she has some... stubborn qualities in regards to certain aspects unrelated to research. For example, I have told her numerous times to just call me "Albedo" since we are about the same age, but she insists on addressing me in an excessively formal manner. ...Whatever she prefers, I guess.
Genshin Impact - Eula ImageEula The alchemist... She once gave me a piece of equipment and told me it would help me infiltrate an Abyss Order camp undetected. In reality, it caused a huge explosion that completely blew my cover and before I knew it I was being accosted by 13 mitachurls... Afterwards, I marched straight back there, intending to make her pay for what she had done, but when I saw how panicked and sheepish she looked, and watched her post her results on the wall with the word "Fail," I couldn't bring myself to go through with it...
After all, I didn't get hurt, just a little disheveled... and a little humiliated.
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean Sucrose is also a rare talent in the field of alchemy. Under Albedo's mentorship, she is sure to flourish. I am sure her future will be bright. The only thing is... Ahem, I was momentarily lost in thought. It is nothing. Nothing bad, anyway.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya Sucrose may not be much of an extrovert in public, but as they say — it's always the quiet ones... Apparently, her laboratory is home to quite the eclectic range of implements and her experiments are more than just intellectually stimulating... All hearsay, of course. You don't seriously think I would go snooping around a fair lady's private quarters, do you?
Genshin Impact - Klee ImageKlee Sucrose is the best! This one time she asked me if I wanted a Jumpy Dumpty that can run as well as jump. Tee-hee, well duh! Of course I do, I want hundreds of them! I wanna put them on every street, every staircase, and every square in Mondstadt!
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa Try not to bother Sucrose if you're at a loose end, you'll only startle the poor girl. She's gifted at interacting with all sorts of exotic creatures — just hopeless when it comes to humans.

Sucrose's Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Albedo ImageAlbedo About Albedo
Artistry: As his Assistant I learn so much each and every day. What's key is not his existing knowledge, but his talented way of thinking. No matter how complex the task at hand, his way of thinking ensures he gets to the bottom of it, and is able to explain it thoroughly. His methodologies are amazing... to me, it's where alchemy meets art.
Talent: Talent? Let's hypothesize that he and I were to perform the same research — I'd spend my whole life playing catch up. But, my studying of bio-alchemy has nothing to do with evading his line of research, we just happen to have different interests and dreams — nothing more.
Genshin Impact - Amber ImageAmber About Amber
I'm curious to why her doll is called "Baron Bunny," it clearly has nothing to do with a rabbit at all. Oh, the headband makes it look like it has rabbit ears you say? Hmm... that's heavily reliant on the rabbit stereotype, is it not? Many rabbits' ears are floppy.
Genshin Impact - Eula ImageEula About Eula
The role of a scout is a hazardous one, and Ms. Eula throws herself into danger all too easily. So, I made a reconnaissance device fore her, so that she wouldn't have to infiltrate enemy camps herself. But Ms. Eula has such an imposing manner, she really puts me on edge, and... I was so nervous that I accidentally left out a few important details while explaining how to use it... As a result, there was an accident... Ah, what should I do... I hope she won't hold a grudge against me...
Genshin Impact - Fischl ImageFischl About Fischl
I take it you're referring to the book series, Flowers for Princess Fischl? Indeed, the world the author came up with is very creative. If only I could go and see it with my own eyes. Oh? you're referring to Fischl herself? I am... doubtful that she could really take me there.
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean About Jean
I don't dare talk to Master Jean that much, because she's so strict. I know she's a good person and all — I know that, I do — but... I still find her scary. I don't tend to bother her, and even when I have to... I ask Albedo to go on my behalf.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya About Kaeya
Oh... I know he likes to joke, and isn't trying to make fun of me, but I often struggle to work out which parts are the truth and which parts are jokes. So whenever he talks to me, the outcome is either one of two things: morbid embarrassment or unbearable awkwardness.
Genshin Impact - Klee ImageKlee About Klee
Jean has put her in solitary confinement so many times, but every time she's let out it's not long before she's back in trouble. 'Sigh' Something tells me she hasn't done much introspection. I told her I'd make her a bouncing, dancing Jumpy Dumpty that is also safe - but to date there are still a lot of problems with the design.
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa About Lisa
She really seems to know a great deal. She's obviously never seen my research, and yet on so many occasions she's given me advice on what is core to my studies. Just how does she know? Is it observation, or is it ratiocination?
Genshin Impact - Noelle ImageNoelle About Noelle
She's a really willing helper, I can't deny that. It's just... she makes me a bit anxious is all. One time, she saw three boxes of materials stacked just outside my laboratory door, and proceeded to move them inside for me. A nice gesture, but the thing is... I'd only just finished putting them outside...
