Ayaka Genshin Impact: Best Builds, Weapons, Artifacts & More

Genshin Impact is home to lots of flamboyant characters that players sometimes patiently wait for to appear on the official banners. That patience is driven by the character’s charisma, their play style, or just the thinking “This character would be an excellent addition to my rooster.” One such character is Kamisato Ayaka, the lady of the Yashiro commission in Inazuma, and the Kamisato Clan. Ayaka will be rerunning in Genshin Impact 4.3.

Ayaka is a fan-favorite and one of the strongest Cryo Vision holders and sword-wielders in Genshin Impact that’s fun to play. We placed her in S-Tier in our Genshin Impact Character tier list, and if you recently got her or have owned it but haven’t used her for a long time, in this guide, let’s look at the best weapons, artifacts, and overall builds for Kamisato Ayaka in Genshin Impact.

Kamisato Ayaka Builds in Genshin Impact

The best build for Ayaka is the Blizzard Strayer artifact set paired with her signature weapon, Mistsplitter Reforged. 2-piece Blizzard Strayer grants Ayaka a 15% Cryo damage bonus and 4-piece grants a 15% Crit rate when enemies are affected by Cryo and an additional 20% Crit Rate when the enemy is Frozen.

All you need to do to get the best out of Ayaka is to use Blizzard Strayer and focus on Crit Damage on the Circlet, Cryo Damage bonus on the Goblet, and ATK% on the Sands. Sub-stats on the Flower, Feather, Goblet, and Sands also play an important role, and the plan is to have Crit Rate and Damage on them, especially the latter. Besides, here are all the artifacts you can try on Ayaka.

  • 4-piece Blizzard Strayer (Best artifact set for Ayaka)
  • 2-piece Blizzard Strayer + 2-piece Nobless Oblige
  • 2-piece Nobless Oblige + 2-piece Gladiator’s Finale

In the end, if you want to know what good Ayaka stats look like, it should be around 30% Crit rate and over 200% crit damage.

As for the talent priority, you should prioritize Elemental Burst > Normal Attack > Elemental Skill. This way, you can ensure you’re getting the most out of her attack and cryo damage buffs. Fighting Azdaha could be tedious so make sure you use others’ help via Co-op.

Kamisato Ayaka: Best Weapons

Since Ayaka heavily relies on Crit stats and especially Crit damage, you must equip her with a Crit damage weapon. Ayaka’s signature weapon is Mistsplitter Reforged. Here are the best weapons for Ayaka.

  • Mistsplitter Reforged (Best-in-slot weapon for Ayaka)
  • Blackcliff Longsword (Best Free-to-play weapon for Ayaka)
  • Primordial Jade Cutter
  • Amenoma Kageuchi
  • The Black Sword

Kamisato Ayaka Constellations

If you’re a free-to-play player, let us tell you that Ayaka at C0 in Genshin Impact is still very good and you may want to invest those hard-earned primogems toward getting other characters. However, if you like the character as an F2P or big spender her constellations are worth getting. The ones that are of the highest priority are C2, C4, and C6; Although, C1 is also very good.

C1: Snowswept Sakura: Adds a 50% chance that Ayaka’s elemental skill cooldown will decrease by 0.3 seconds every time you hit an enemy with her Cryo damage (normal or charged).

C2: Blizzard Blade Seki To No: Adds two smaller frostflake storms that widen Ayaka’s burst range and damage “Kamisato Art: Soumetsu.” While this may not sound very prioritizing, it’s important if you want to spread the Cryo application.

C4: Ebb and Flow: Brings down the defense by 30% whenever Kamisato Art: Soumetsu’s frostflake hits the enemy.

C6: Dance of Suigetsu: Ayaka gains Usurahi Butou every ten seconds which increases her charged attack damage by 298%.

Again, these aren’t necessary as Ayaka’s already an excellent damage dealer, but if you have the resources, you may want to go all out to build the best Ayaka among any Genshin Impact player out there!
