Elemental Mastery Support Build
Sucrose is a great support for Elemental DMG teams, and even more impactful in a team that relies on Melt/Vaporize. Sucrose's A4 passive talent buffs your team's EM by 20% of her EM whenever she triggers Swirl. Stacking as much EM as possible maximizes this EM buff as well as the damage from the Swirl itself. Since she has access to 4PC VV, her EM buff can massively increase your team's Melt/Vaporize damage.
Burst > Skill
Leveling up her talents aren't important since her damage output relative to the team's damage output is negligible. Prioritize leveling up her weapons and artifacts.
Main stats: ER or EM/EM/EM
Substats: ER = EM
Swirl reactions cannot crit so the only important stats are ER for burst uptime and EM for swirl damage. In teams that do not benefit from EM, completing the 4PC set is more important than getting the correct stats.
Best EM weapon on Sucrose since it gives her a larger EM buff while the cooldown reset improves her battery capabilities.
Other valuable EM weapons with useful passives, both weapon banner limited.
TTDS does not provide anything to Sucrose, but it is an extremely valuable support weapon since she can provide a massive ATK buff to a party member. This should be taken if no one else in the team can use TTDS.
Magic Guide is the best F2P EM weapon on Sucrose since it provides more EM than the Mappa Mare while also being cheaper to level up.
Crafting this weapon just for Sucrose is not recommended. Only use this if you accidentally scrapped all your Magic Guides.
Hakushin Ring is a very niche weapon since it turns Sucrose into the carry and requires multiple off-field DPS characters. This weapon becomes extremely powerful in an Electro-Charged team where Sucrose can constantly trigger the passive with her normal attacks. She can provide Elemental DMG buffs to her team while maintaining a decent burst uptime.
Favonius Codex is also a niche weapon due to its battery-oriented stats. This is only worth using in teams that do not benefit from EM. Neglecting EM allows Sucrose to stack ER and Crit, which should improve burst uptime and performance as a battery.
Sucrose has access to Swirl, allowing her to massively increase your team's damage by shredding enemies' elemental resistance.
These sets still help Sucrose's EM but are not recommended since 4PC VV has a stronger impact and 4★ artifacts have weaker scaling. Only usable early-game since 4PC VV massively outperforms these sets.
