That being said, it doesn’t mean the subsequent updates for the title will be any less impactful for the game. Leaks have stated that we won’t be getting any sort of filler content before 2022 at the very least, so that means there is still a lot to come. Quite important of all is the anniversary event which is slated to come next month, and that is supposed to be quite big as well.

Amidst all that, we have the next banner arriving in the game, which will be featuring two new characters, Yoimiya and Sayu, among others. If you are wondering what is the best build for Sayu and what materials you need to farm for its ascension, here is all you need to know about it.

Genshin Impact Sayu Best Build, Ascension Materials

The best weapon for Sayu is the Skyward Pride, which will be again the new weapon available for grab in the new weapon banner releasing along with the Yoimiya banner. Here is a description of the perks of the weapon.

Increases all DMG dealt by 8%. After using an Elemental Burst, Normal or Charged Attack, on hit, creates a vacuum blade that does 80% of ATK as DMG to opponents along its path. Lasts for 20s or 8 vacuum blades.

With these perks, it makes it one of the perfect weapons for Sayu. Apart from that, players can also try using Katsuragikiri Nagamasa, Favonius Greatsword, and Prototype Archaic.

When it comes to artifacts, we recommend using Viridescent Venerer which increases Spread DMG by 60% when used as 4-piece set. It also reduces the RES of enemies hit by Swirl by 40%, while the 2-piece set increases Anemo DMG by 15%. A good alternative for the artifact is Noblesse Oblige.
