How can you get Sacrificial Fragments
The Sacrificial Fragment is a weapon that can be obtained from any of the banners at any time. It simply depends upon your luck.
If you really want this catalyst, though, it’s best to invest your primogems when it has a rate up to increase your chances.
Weapon Stats and Passive
At level 90, Sacrificial Fragments has a base ATK of 454. Apart from that, it has an Elemental Mastery substat which can go up to 221 at the highest level.
The passive of this Catalyst has a 40% chance of ending a character’s Elemental Skill cooldown after an enemy has been hit by it. This effect can occur every 16s. AT refinement 5, the chances of the cooldown ending are increased by 80%.
Who can use Sacrificial Fragments?
While Genshin Impact has a decent lineup of Catalyst users, ranging between supports and DPS, there aren’t many that can fully utilize Sacrificial Fragments. With an EM substat, this weapon is most suited for support characters that are used to proc elemental reactions. Another thing to remember is that the weapon’s passive can only be activated if a character’s Elemental Skill hits the enemy.
So, who can use this weapon?
Sucrose is an Anemo vision holder which means most of her damage is dependent on the elements she can swirl with her skills. The higher the number of Elemental Mastery, the higher the damage of her swirl will be. Because of this reason, Sacrificial Fragment is her best-in-slot weapon.
Not only does it have an Elemental Mastery substat but its passive lets Sucrose be the support she was meant to be.
At C1, Sucrose receives an additional charge for her Elemental Skill Astable Anemohypostasis Creation – 6308. This is very useful, especially when paired with the Sacrificial Fragments because the Catalysts’ passive will end her elemental skill’s cooldown. This way, Sucrose can not only be used as a support but also as a battery for your main DPS.
Also, with the high amounts of elemental particles generated, her Elemental Burst will be up and ready to use in no time. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is the cooldown for it.
Apart from Sucrose, there are other characters that can use Sacrificial Fragments like Klee or Yanfei but compared to other 4-star weapons, they have better options. For instance, both Klee and Yanfei scale better with the Dodoco Tales or even the Frostbearer. Both of them have an ATK substat and a more useful passive.
If you don’t have Sacrificial Fragments, you can always replace it with a Mappa Mare. It has a higher base ATK at level 90 but a lower amount of Elemental Mastery. However, unlike Sacrificial Fragments, it can be forged. All you need is a Northlander Catalyst Billet.
