Sayu is one of the rare characters in Genshin Impact who can have multiple roles in the team. From healing and causing strong Swirl reactions to being a sub-DPS, Sayu can do it all.

Sayu's announcement garnered a lot of attention among the Genshin Impact community due to her unique set of talents. Her ability to not scare off Crystal flies is a major attraction for mobile players. Sayu's ascension stat being Elemental Mastery makes her a great supporting character to cause powerful Elemental reactions. However, a character's ability in Genshin Impact solely depends on the weapon and artifacts used in their build.

This article describes the best possible build options for Sayu as a healer in Genshin Impact.


Best Sayu healer build in Genshin Impact

Sayu's healing power scales off to her maximum attack. So, players should focus on stacking ATK% while building Sayu as a healer. In addition to ATK, the Energy Recharge should also be sufficient to increase the consistency of healing from her Elemental Burst. There are two combinations for it: either use an Energy Recharge weapon with ATK% artifacts or vice versa. Considering ATK% weapons are rare and should be used for DPS characters, the former combination seems like a better choice for healer Sayu.

4pc Maiden's Beloved: This set is the obvious choice for any healer in Genshin Impact. With the increase in a character's healing power, the 4pc Maiden's set also increases the incoming healing ability of all other characters in the team.

2pc Gladiator's Finale + 2pc Maiden's Beloved: The 2pc Gladiator set will increase Sayu's attack by 18%, thus increasing her healing ability. This combination can be helpful if players do not have sufficient attack on Sayu to have considerable healing.
