Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Kamisato Ayaka

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Kamisato Ayaka
0

The eldest of the Kamisato Clan has come to Genshin Impact as a 5-star, sword-wielding character with Cryo affinity. Here's what we think is the best build for Ayaka in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact: The Best Build for Kamisato Ayaka

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.

Mistsplitter Reforged

★★★★★

CRIT DMG

Mistsplitter's Edge

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.

The Black Sword

★★★★

CRIT Rate

Justice

Increases DMG dealt by Normal and Charged Attacks by 20/25/30/35/40%.
Additionally, regenerates 60/70/80/90/100% of ATK as HP when Normal and Charged Attacks score a CRIT Hit. This effect can occur once every 5s.

The best Artifacts for Kamisato Ayaka in Genshin Impact

The Blizzard Strayer set makes the most sense for Ayaka, given the Cryo affinity of the artifacts. 

You could also go with a 2/2 split with either Emblem of Severed Fate (for Energy Recharge) or Gladiator's Finale (for more ATK) if you want to change things up.

Blizzard Strayer

(2) Cryo DMG Bonus +15%

(4) When a character attacks an opponent affected by Cryo, their CRIT Rate is increased by 20%. If the opponent is Frozen, CRIT Rate is increased by an additional 20%.

Emblem of Severed Fate

(2) Energy Recharge +20%

(4) Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.

Gladiator's Finale

(2) ATK +18%

(4) If the wielder of this artifact set uses a Sword, Claymore or Polearm, increases their Normal Attack DMG by 35%.

Talent and Constellation priority for Kamisato Ayaka in Genshin Impact

Ayaka's Normal Attack, Kamisato Art - Kabuki should be your priority here, followed by her Elemental Skill, Kamisato Art: Hyouka. This should help you deal the most DMG overall.

Constallation-wise, C4 - Ebb and Flow - is going to ramp up your output the most, given it applies a fantastic DEF debuff to enemies.
