Vajrada Amethyst Sliver and its different variants can be farmed by defeating the Electro Hypostasis boss. The damaged, stained, and ominous masks can be obtained by defeating Hilichurls. You can also buy them from Paimon’s shop using in-game currency. Dendrobium is a resource that you can find in the wild in the Inazuma region. You can find some around the Maguu Kenki boss area.

As for the new boss drop item, you will have to wait until update 2.1 goes live in order to fight the new weekly boss and get the new resource. Apart from these materials, you are also going to need a massive amount of Mora to level up Kujou Sara to 90 and upgrade her talents. So be sure to have plenty of Mora saved up in advance. 

Kujou Sara Build: Weapons And Artifacts

To make the most out of the character at launch, you are going to need the right weapon and artifacts. The following are is the build that we recommend for Kujou Sara.

Best Weapons

Skyward Harp is one of the weapons that we can recommend as it has crit rate as the secondary. This is going to allow you to deal massive critical damage more often. This is a 5-star weapon so you will need to already have it or wish on upcoming weapon banners that feature the weapon. 

Skyward Harp

Mitternachts Waltz is another bow that we can recommend. This has physical damage bonus as the secondary stat. Hamayumi is the bow that Kujou Sara uses in the cutscene. This is a craftable weapon so you can R5 it without having to wish or spend money. The secondary stat is attack. The perk of the bow increases normal attack damage and charged attack damage, which makes it a good fit for Sara.

Best Artifacts

When it comes to the artifacts, you can use the classic Thundering Fury. 2 pieces are going to give you a 15% electro damage bonus. 4 pieces are going to increase the damage caused by overload, electro-charged, and superconduct by 40%. Triggering these reactions is also going to decrease the elemental cooldown by 1 second.

You can also choose to go with the new Shimenawa’s Reminiscence set. 2 pieces give you an 18% attack bonus. 4 pieces increase normal, charged, and plunge attack damage by 50% for 10 seconds when you have 15 energy or more.

Either way, we recommend getting the electro damage bonus mains stat on the cup and crit rate or crit damage on the hat.
