Ayato Constellations

Like most 5-star characters, Ayato will be effective even if you don't have any of his constellations. However, if you particularly like the character and want to make him even stronger, we especially recommend :

  • His C2 "World Source": It allows Ayato to cumulate more "undulating flash" effects with his elemental attack. If he has at least 3 of them, his HP is increased by 50%, which brings him a significant increase in damage;
  • His C4 "Endless Flow" increases the attack speed of all characters' normal attacks by 15% for 15 seconds after Ayato casts his elemental rampage.

How to play Ayato in Genshin Impact ?

Ayato's gameplay is quite simple, fun and effective. You can even play him as the main DPS.

To do this, start by deploying his elemental rampage. "Kamisato Art : Suiyuu" generates a huge area inflicting Hydro damage for 18 seconds. This takes 20 seconds to recharge, so you can keep it around almost permanently and multiply elemental reactions with your other characters. The talent also boosts the normal attacks of all your team members.

Ayato's elemental rampage statistics in Genshin Impact

Use this opportunity to activate Ayato's elemental skill: "Kamisato Art : Kyouka". From then on, Ayato enters a state of "Takimeguri Kanka" for 6 seconds. His normal attacks are replaced by extremely fast Hydro attacks.

Simply hold down the normal attack key to cause a chain attack. After hitting an enemy, Ayato gets a "Namisen effect" effect, which can be accumulated up to 4 times. This increases his damage according to his maximum HP. In addition, Ayato deploys a watery illusion which, if not attracting enemies, explodes to inflict Hydro area damage.

When this skill is active, the passive "Kamisato Art : Mine Wo Matoishi Kiyotaki" grants 2 cumulative "Namisen effect" upon activation. And when a watery illusion explodes, you get a "Namisen effect" effect equal to the maximum number of accumulations possible.

You can also use Ayato as a burst DPS. In this case, you will mainly use his elemental rampage. This will allow him to spend less time on the active post, allowing you to take advantage of his "Kamisato Art : Michiyuku Hagetsu" passive. If Ayato is not deployed and has less than 40 elemental energy points, he recovers 2 points every second.

You are advised to mount Ayato's elemental attacks first, you will not use his normal attacks directly.

What is the best equipment for Ayato?

If Ayato's elemental skill benefits from a damage bonus according to its maximum HP, we advise you not to focus solely on this statistic. Increase his damage with hisATK points, damage and critical hits, but also with the effects of his equipment for an optimal build. To this end, we have listed for you the best artifacts and weapons to equip on Ayato.
