  • The C1 'Frosted Cherry' reduces the cooldown of the elemental skill;
  • The C4 "Preeminent Return" lowers the FG of enemies damaged by Ayaka's elemental rampage;
  • The C6 "Moon Dance" increases the damage of Ayaka's charged attack considerably.

How to play Ayaka in Genshin Impact ?

Ayaka's gameplay in Genshin Impact

Kamisato Ayaka is mainly used as a main DPS: his skills allow him to inflict a lot of damage. You can also use him as a burst DPS, mainly using his elemental skills.

Ayaka can continuously inflict Cryo damage. Her ability "Kamisato School: Frost Path" allows her to transform into an ice fog, to move very fast, but above all to infuse the Cryo element for 5 seconds into her blade. In addition, her passive "Blessing of Kanten Senmyou" regenerates 10 points of her stamina and gives her an 18% bonus to DMGCryo for 10 seconds when she hits an enemy.

Ayaka's elemental skill statistics in Genshin Impact

Ayaka's elemental attack "Kamisato School: Ice Flower" summons an icy flower inflicting area Cryo damage. After casting the ability, the passive "Sanctification of the Impure" grants Ayaka's normal and charged attacks a 30% damage bonus for 6 seconds.

Ayaka's elemental rampage statistics in Genshin Impact

And with her elemental rampage "Kamisato School: Deadly Frost", Ayaka projects a whirlwind of frost that shoots out in front of her and hits all enemies in her path. Try as much as possible to gather your opponents with an Anemo character before launching this attack.

Ayaka's normal attack statistics in Genshin Impact

Ayaka's charged attack has a good damage multiplier and can hit several enemies at once.

For optimal rotation, start by sprinting, cast Ayaka's elemental attack, sprint again, cast charged attacks, and then her elemental rampage as soon as it becomes available. Increase Ayaka's elemental rampage first, then her elemental skill, and finally her normal attack.

What is the best equipment for Ayaka?

Kamisato Ayaka can easily deal Cryo damage, so for a good DPS build, you'll want to increase his Cryo damage as much as possible, but also his ATK and critical damage. We reveal the best artifact and weapon sets to equip on Ayaka.

The best artefacts for Ayaka

The best artifact set for Ayaka in Genshin Impact is definitely the "Ice Breaker" set. By equipping 2 pieces, you get a 15% damage bonus from Cryo. With 4, the critical rate is boosted by 20% when you attack an enemy affected by the Cryo element. If he is frozen, you get an additional 20% CRIT rate bonus. That's a 40% boost in total. You won't need to add much critical rate to Ayaka.

Best Artifact Set for Ayaka: Icebreaker
Blizzard Strayer
Artifact Set for Ayaka: Gladiator's Curtain
Gladiator's Finale
Artifact Set for Ayaka: Nostalgic Reminiscence
Shimenawa's Reminiscence

If you choose to use weapons that increase the critical rate, it is recommended to equip 2 pieces of "Ice Breaker" and 2 pieces of "Gladiator's Curtain" or "Nostalgic Reminiscence" to increase theATK by 18%. This artefact combination is also preferable when playing Ayaka with Pyro characters.

The main statistics to be promoted:

  • Hourglass: ATK%;
  • Cutting: damage bonus Cryo ;
  • Crown: critical damage.

Secondary statistics :

  • ATK% ;
  • Critical damage ;
  • Critical rate (but be careful not to exceed 40% if you have a full Icebreaker set);
  • Energy Recharge;
  • Basic mastery.

The best weapons for Ayaka

Unsurprisingly, Ayaka's best weapon in Genshin Impact is the "Mist-Slice Reflect", her signature weapon. The one-handed sword greatly increases her critical damage as well as her elemental damage. On the 5-star weapon side, the "Primordial Jade Cutter" is also a good option if you haven't equipped the 4-piece "Ice Breaker" set. The weapon increases critical rate, HP andATK by 1.2% of max HP.

If you do not have them, there are other options:

Ayaka's climbing materials in Genshin Impact

To get Ayaka to level 90 in Genshin Impact, you will need :

  • 419 Hero's Wit and 2.1 million Moras;
  • 1 Shard, 9 Fragments, 9 Pieces and 6 Shivada Jade Stones as well as 46 Perpetual Hearts to loot from the Perpetual Mechanical Matrix.
  • 168 Cherry Blossoms: You can find them on Narukami Island in Inazuma. You must launch Electro attacks on them to get them. Locate them using the interactive map of Teyvat;
  • 18 Ancient Handguards, 30 Kageuchi Handguards and 36 Famous Handguards to collect from the Nobushi and Sea Oni in Inazuma.

Which team should Ayaka play in?

Ayaka works very well in Genshin Impact with Hydro characters like Kokomi, Mona or Xingqiu. You can then freeze your enemies almost all the time.

Team to play Ayaka in Genshin Impact : Ayaka / Xingqiu / Sucrose / Diona

It is also recommended that you play Ayaka with another Cryo character (especially Diona, Shenhe or Rosalia) in order to take advantage of the Cryo Resonance. This increases the critical rate by 15% when enemies are frozen or affected by the Cryo element.

Finally, an Anemo character will allow you to gather your enemies to freeze them more easily.

Among the most played teams in the abyss are: Ayaka / Shehne / Kazuha / Kokomi. Shehne will greatly increase Cryo damage, Kazuha will group enemies together boosting elemental damage, while Kokomi will effectively apply the Hydro element while healing your team.

You can also start on Ayaka / Xingqiu / Sucrose / Diona. Diona can protect your characters with her shield and serve as a battery.

Ayaka will also pair well with Pyro characters such as Diluc or Hu Tao if you play her as a DPS burst.
