Subtitled the Frostflake Heron, Kamisato Ayaka is now available in Genshin Impact.
A sword wielder, she is aligned with the Cryo element. You'll want to play her as a pure DPS, as she can be very strong indeed.
You can only get Kamisato Ayaka from Wishes, as a five-star character.
The best weapons for Kamisato Ayaka in Genshin Impact
The best sword for Ayaka is hands-down the Mistsplitter Reforged. This weapon ramps up the Elemental DMG, and buffs her for a short amount of time.
Alternatively, The Black Sword is a decent four-star weapon that is easier to get, and regenerates HP when a CRIT lands.
Gain a 12/15/18/21/24% Elemental DMG Bonus for every element and receive the might of Mistsplitter's Emblem. At stack levels 1/2/3, Mistsplitter's Emblem provides a 8/16/28% - 16/32/56% Elemental DMG Bonus for the character's Elemental Type.
The character will obtain 1 stack of Mistsplitter's Emblem in each of the following scenarios: Normal Attack deals Elemental DMG (stack lasts 5s), casting Elemental Burst (stack lasts 10s); Energy is less than 100% (stack disappears when Energy is full). Each stack's duration is calculated independently.
