Who to Ayato with:


As part of a team that uses Ayato as a central source of damage, Bennett will be the ideal healer. In addition to providing an appreciable Pyro resonance, it gives Ayato a good attack buff, which suits him perfectly.


Ayato's dream right arm on the battlefield. Xiangling can set enemies on fire with his Pyro effects, then cause a whole lot of resonance effect thanks to Ayato's skills. It will vaporize all the way!

Of course, these characters are only examples and do not constitute all the playable characters with Ayato but just a small representation of what you can do. Ayato can go well in taser comps using beidou or freeze teams with his little sister for exemple.
