Genshin Impact: The best artifact sets for Sayu – Viridescent Venerer vs. other options

Let’s take a look at some of the best artifact set combos for Sayu.


4-piece Viridescent Venerer

  • 2-piece bonus – +15% Anemo damage bonus.
  • 4-piece bonus – +60% Swirl damage; decreases the opponent’s elemental resistance to the element infused in the Swirl by 40% for 10 seconds.

The Viridescent Venerer artifact set (from the Valley of Remembrance domain) is the most obvious choice for Sayu given how Anemo sub-DPS and support characters tend to use Swirl.

2-piece Viridescent Venerer + 2-piece Wanderer’s Troupe/Noblesse Oblige/Gladiator’s Finale/Shimenawa’s Reminisce

You’ll get the +15% Anemo bonus from Viridescent Venerer, plus:

  • Wanderer’s Troupe – +80 elemental mastery.
  • Noblesse Oblige – +20% elemental burst damage.
  • Gladiator’s/Shimenawa’s – +18% ATK.

These combos are viable if you’re still looking for ideal Viridescent Venerer drops for a full 4-piece set with decent rolls. Lastly, I wouldn’t recommend the Maiden Beloved set at all. Sayu has a fairly high base ATK stat, so you won’t need the healing boost from that set. It’s better to build her as a sub-DPS with healing capabilities (like Jean).

Artifact stats

Here are the ideal artifact rolls for Sayu:

  • Main stats (C1 to C5) – Anemo damage for the goblet and ATK% for the sands. For the circlet, choose either crit rate, crit damage, or ATK%. It might be viable to have elemental mastery if you have her at C6, but we’ll see.
  • Sub-stats – Flat ATK, ATK%, crit rate, and/or crit damage. Again, EM could be a good sub-stat to look for in artifacts if she’s at C6.

Note: Swirls will not crit. However, her skill/kick and burst/Muji-Muji Daruma should still be able to.

Anyway, let’s discuss talent priorities and constellations in the next part of our Genshin Impact Sayu guide.
