Her C2 makes it easier for her teammates to receive the attack buff from her elemental. The C6 of Sara is one of the strongest constellations in the game for every Electro character. This constellation adds a huge 60% Crit Damage buff to all of her teammate’s electro damage alongside the attack buff of skill.
