Sayu curls up into a rolling Fuufuu Windwheel and smashes into opponents at high speed, dealing Anemo Damage.

When the duration ends, she unleashes a Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick, dealing AoE Anemo Damage.

With the 1st ascension passive talent unlocked, this skill will provide a small amount of healing to the whole party if this skill activates the Swirl elemental reaction.

This skill has a press and a hold option:

Press:

  • Sayu will roll forward a short distance then use FuuFuu Whirlwind Kick.

  • The press option has lower damage.

  • The press option has a quicker cooldown of 6 seconds.

  • The 2nd constellation will further increase its damage by 3.3%.

Hold:

  • Sayu rolls continuously in the Fuufuu Windwheel state until you let it go or the max duration ends.

    Press the elemental skill button again (“E” on PC) to end her rolling early.

  • It has a maximum duration of 10 seconds.
  • The skill will only enter its cooldown once you release it or the maximum duration ends.
  • The longer you used up its duration, the longer the skill will go on cooldown.
  • While rolling, Sayu’s resistance to interruptions is increased.
  • You can control Sayu’s rolling direction during this state.

  • The hold option can deal higher damage to opponents.

  • The hold option can trigger elemental absorption whenever you hit an opponent while rolling.

The 2nd constellation will increase its damage based on the duration you stayed at the Windwheel (rolling) state.
