How to Use Kujou Sara

Use Elemental Skill to Retreat and Shoot

Genshin - Sara Elemental Skill

Sara's Elemental Skill, Tengu Stormcall, allows her to retreat and gain the protection of the Crowfeather Cover for 18s. Once she's far away, she can shoot which will consume the Crowfeather and trigger a Tengu Juurai: Ambush.

What's the Tengu Juurai: Ambush?

Tengu Juurai: Ambush

The Tengu Juurai: Ambush deals AoE Electro DMG and grants the active character on the field an ATK Bonus within it's AoE and scales on Sara's ATK. It's important to note that this does not stack and the duration is based on the last Tengu Juurai!

Elemental Burst Deals AoE Electro DMG

Genshin - Sara Elemental Burst AoE
Subjugation: Koukou Sendou

Sara's Elemental Burst, Subjugation: Koukou Sendou deals massive AoE Electro DMG by calling down the Tengu Juurai: Titanbreaker. The Titanbreaker then spreads into 4 bouts of Tengu Juurai: Stormcluster that deals even further AoE Electro DMG.

Both Stormcluster and Titanbreaker also has the the same ATK Bonus for any active character on the field like the Tengu Stormcall. It also does not stack and the duration is set by the last Tengu Juurai as well.
