The Best Genshin Impact Sara build

Looking for the best Genshin Impact Sara build? This four-star Electro archer and general of the Tenryou commission was revealed in the version 2.0 trailer, and many of you will have already met her during your clashes with the vision hunt decree in Inazuma. But how do you get the most out of this Electro archer?

Kujou Sara is a cool character with a unique playstyle. Considering she's known for her speed and uses a bow, she's a little like an ambush hunter, leaving delayed Crowfeathers that explode with Electro and give your characters attack bonuses, allowing you to use her as a powerful support.

We also already know Sara's abilities, Constellations, and Ascension materials (thanks, Honey Hunter World!), and this means that we can make some pretty accurate suggestions around what weapons and artifacts will bring out her true potential.

Is There a Genshin Impact Sara Banner?

While we don't have its name yet, we do know that the Genshin Impact Sara banner also features Baal and releases alongside version 2.1. Considering Sara and Baal are both involved in the vision hunt faction of Inazuma's conflict, and that they are four-star and five-star characters respectively, it makes sense that they are part of the same banner.

Electro Support Sara Build

The best Sara build turns her into a Support character, if only because her attack is too low to make Sara a strong DPS, especially if you already rolled Yoimiya. Her Elemental Skill lets Sara boost party attack, and the Crowfeather's delayed Electro attack makes her perfect for setting up Reactions.

What Are the Best Team Comps for Sara?

Sara is a great Support unit that shines especially as part of a team if you mind the companions you put her with. Bennett and Fischl serve as great Sub-DPS units capable of triggering numerous Elemental Reactions, and Tartaglia can benefit from the Electro reactions that Sara can unleash.

What Are the Best Artifacts for Sara?

The artifacts will depend on what’s your approach with Fischl. If you’re going for a Ranged Elemental Support Build, you should get a 2-2 combination of Pale Flame and Thundering Fury. However, if you’re aiming for an Support DPS build, you may want to prioritize Shimenawa's Reminiscence and maybe throw Gladiator’s Finale in the mix.
