The best builds for Sayu in Genshin Impact

Sayu is a 4-star Anemo Claymore-user in Genshin Impact. A pint-sized ninja attached to the Shuumatsuban, who always seems to be lacking sleep. Make the most from this sleepy Shinobi and she has mastered all kinds of ninjutsu to run away and hide in pursuit of opportunities to laze around and sleep. 

Sayu Abilities

NORMAL ATTACK: Shuumatsuban Ninja Blade

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 opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact. 


Sayu curls up into a rolling Fuufuu Windwheel and smashes into opponents at high speed, dealing Anemo DMG. When the duration ends, she unleashes a Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick, dealing AoE Anemo DMG.

Press: Enters the Fuufuu Windwheel state, rolling forward a short distance before using the Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick.

Hold: Rolls about continuously in the Fuufuu Windwheel state, increasing Sayu's resistance to interruption while within that state. During this time, Sayu can control the direction of her roll, and can use the skill again to end her Windwheel state early and unleash a stronger version of the Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick. The Hold version of this skill can trigger Elemental Absorption. This skill has a maximum duration of 10s and enters CD once its effects end. The longer Sayu remains in her Windwheel state, the longer the CD.

Elemental Absorption: If Sayu comes into contact with Hydro, Pyro, Cryo and Electro while in her Windwheel state, she will deal additional elemental DMG of that type. Elemental Absorption may only occur once per use of this skill.


Sayu summons a pair of helping hands that deal Anemo damage to nearby opponents and heal nearby party members. The amount healed scales on Sayu's attack. 

The skill then summons a Muji-Muji Daruma that takes actions at specific intervals depending on the situation.
  • If the HP of nearby characters is above 70%, it will attack a nearby opponent, dealing Anemo DMG. 
  • If there are active characters with 70% or less HP nearby, it will heal the active character with the lowest percentage HP left. 
  • If there are no opponents nearby, it will heal active characters nearby even if they have 70% HP or more.
