Build guide for Genshin Impact Ayato, a Hydro swordsman.
In search of a good Genshin Impact Ayato setup?
At last, the big brother of Ayaka, Ayato, has arrived in Teyvat and he appears to wield considerable sway over the Kamisato Clan.
Shunsuiken standard attacks allow him to slash away enemies while earning additional damage via the Namisen effect and his burst.
In addition to Yun Jin’s typical attack boost, he’s likely to be a terrifying threat.
It’s possible that a strong character isn’t a terrible thing, given the Ruin Serpent boss and the potential for an entirely new underground region to emerge.
Until Ayaka reappears in the second part of the edition, Venti’s banner is also back for a while, which is probably when the Irodori Festival will also begin.
Even so, if you’re searching for a top-tier Genshin Impact Ayato build that makes the most of his Shunsuiken strikes, I’ll show you how to do so.
As well as his stats, passives, constellations, and abilities, I’ll go over the resources you’ll need to ascended him.
The Greatest Genshin Impact Ayato build.
Fast-hitting Shunsuiken normal attacks, Namisen stacks based on his HP, and his Suiyuu burst are Ayato’s key strengths.
A solid Ayato build focuses on HP and crits to maximize the damage of those fast attacks, as well as energy recharge, so that he may unleash his burst boost more frequently.
- Weapon: Haran Geppaku Futsu
Ayato’s new five-star sword, the Haran Geppaku Futsu, is the best option.
It increases critical strike rate, elemental damage, and adds Wavespikes, a stackable effect to the mix.
The wielder gains one of a possible two stacks when nearby party members use elemental skills.
For the next eight seconds, Ayato’s normal attack damage will be boosted by 20% for each stack of the elemental talent he has.
When Ayato enters his skill state, his Shunsuiken attacks benefit greatly from this.
There’s also the Primordial Jade Cutter, which gets five stars.
The crit rate, HP, and attack bonus are all increased by 1.2 percent when this sword is wielded.
The Namisen effect, which scales damage based on maximum HP, complements this beautifully.
- Artifact: (4) Echoes of an Offering
You can find a special set for Ayato in the Chasm’s Lost Valley domain, called Echoes of an Offering.
It increases attack by 18% for the two-piece set, and by 25% for the four-piece set thanks to the Valley Rite effect.
For every 36 percent of the time Ayato attacks, this will activate, increasing the strike damage by 70%.
If it doesn’t happen on the first attack, the risk of it happening on the next strike is 20 percent higher.
This gear is ideal for Ayato, who is known for his lightning-fast attacks.
For stats, you’ll want to prioritise HP, crit rate, crit damage, attack, and a small amount of energy recharging ability.
When Ayato is not on the field, his passive Michiyuku Hagestu causes him to regain two energy every second if he has less than 40.
The burst is still pricey even with this skill, so if you want to use the buff, you’ll need to replenish your energy.
An artefact with a +1 to hydro damage would also be a nice bonus if you happen to get one.
How to Unlock Ayato in Genshin Impact?
When you log in to Genshin Impact 2.6, you will see Ayato as one of the first banners available.
He’ll remain around for the next few weeks, until the Ayaka banner takes over on April 20.
Be sure to make any wishes for him before then if you’d like to.
His flag features Yun Jin, Sucrose, and Xiangling as four-star characters.
Listed below are Ayato’s active and passive skills, constellations, and talents
|Normal attack||Up to five quick strikes are allowed.|
|Charged attack||To dash forward and perform an iai, it takes a particular quantity of stamina.|
|Plunging attack||On hit, it performs a large area of effect damage.|
|Kamisator Art – Kyouka||It’s as though Ayato has entered a watery state, which explodes after a brief time, causing Hydro AoE damage.|
|Takimeguri Kanka||AoE Hydro Shunsuiken slashes are now Ayato’s standard attacks. Shunsuiken attacks grant Ayato the Namisen effect, which increases Ayato’s damage based on Ayato’s maximum HP. |
Once a state has finished or the player has ended it themselves, Namisen’s effects are extinguished.
Attacks like charged and plunging are no longer viable, although Ayato is better able to withstand interruptions now.
|Kamisato Art – Suiyuu||Ayato unleashes a rain of Bloomwater Blades on his enemies, causing Hydro damage in the process. Damage from standard attacks is additionally boosted in this AoE.|
|Kamisato Art – Daily Cooking||An 18 percent probability of receiving an additional “Suspicious” dish is given to Ayato when he successfully prepares a dish of the same sort.|
|Kamisato Art – Mine Wo Matoishi Kiyotaki||Ayato will earn two Namisen stacks when Kyouka is used. |
An explosion of the water illusion will give Ayato the Namisen effect proportional to the number of stacks.
|Kamisato Art – Michiyuku Migetsu||When Ayato’s energy falls below 40, he will restore 2 energy every second if he is not on the field.|
|Kyouka Fuushi||Against opponents with half or less of their maximum health, Shunsuiken’s damage is enhanced by 40%.|
|World Source||The number of Namisen’s stacks has been raised by 5. |
Having at least three stacks of Namisen gives Kamisato Ayato a 50% increase in maximum HP.
|To Admire the Flowers||Brings Kyouka’s level up by three notches. |
The highest possible level of improvement is 15.
|Endless Flow||For 15 seconds after using Suiyuu, all nearby members’ usual attack speed is enhanced by 15%.|
|Bansui Ichiro||Three levels are added to Suiyuu’s current level. |
In terms of upgrading, the maximum number of levels is 15.
|Boundless Origin||Two additional Shunsuiken attacks are created when Ayato uses Kyouka, each of which deals 450 percent of Ayato’s assault as damage. Namisen has no effect on either of these Shunsuiken attacks.|
Ayato’s Ascension materials
You’ll need Varunada Lazurite and Dews of Repudiation from the Hydro Hypostasis boss on Watatsumi Island in order to level up Ayato.
There are two things you’ll need from the outside world:
- Sakura Blooms
- Handguard materials
Electro characters can be used to collect Sakura Blooms(opens in new tab) on Narukami Island and Mt. Yougou.
Inazuma’s Nobushi foes drop handguard materials of varying world levels.
In order to raise Ayato’s talent, you’ll need four items:
- Handguard materials
- Elegance scrolls
- Mudra of the Malefic General
- Crown of Insight
Inazuma’s Nobushi adversaries are the source of the Handguard resources.
On Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, you can purchase Elegance Scrolls from the Violet Court domain for a little fee.
The Guardian of Eternity weekly boss may award you with Mudra of the Malefic General.
It’s also possible to get the Crown of Insight as a seasonal event reward, or by upgrading the Sacred Sakura, the Frostbearer, or the Lumenstone Adjutant in The Chasm.
