Here is our Genshin Impact Kamisato Ayato Best Build Guide. Find out which artifacts and weapons you should be using for him.

Kamisato Ayato is a 5-Star Sword user with the Hydro Vision in Genshin Impact. He is the older brother of Kamisato Ayaka and the current head of the Kamisato Clan. This fine gentleman has tons of responsibilities since he is the Yashiro Commissioner. But he makes time for himself every day and enjoys some nice Boba Tea.

Ayato is a great Hydro DPS character with continuous Hydro application which is very helpful to trigger Elemental Reactions. He is very easy to play for beginners as you just have to use his Elemental Skill and hold the attack button for quick attack combos. Here is our Genshin Impact Ayato Best Build Guide.

Kamisato Ayato Best Build


  • High Single and Multi Target damage

Kamisato Ayato Talents

Kamisato Art: Marobashi (Normal Attack)

Normal Attack – Performs up to 5 rapid strikes.

Charged Attack – Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to dash forward and perform an iai.

Plunging Attack – Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

Kamisato Art: Kyouka (Elemental Skill)

Kamisato Ayato shifts positions and enters the Takimeguri Kanka state. After this shift, he will leave a watery illusion at his original location. After it is formed, the watery illusion will explode if opponents are nearby or after its duration ends, dealing AoE Hydro DMG.

Takimeguri Kanka

In this state, Kamisato Ayato uses his Shunsuiken to engage in blindingly fast attacks, causing DMG from his Normal Attacks to be converted into AoE Hydro DMG. This cannot be overridden.

It also has the following properties:

  • After a Shunsuiken attack hits an opponent, it will grant Ayato the Namisen effect, increasing the DMG dealt by Shunsuiken based on Ayato’s current Max HP. The initial maximum number of Namisen stacks is 4, and 1 stack can be gained through Shunsuiken every 0.1s. This effect will be dispelled when Takimeguri Kanka ends.
  • Kamisato Ayato’s resistance to interruption is increased.
  • Unable to use Charged or Plunging Attacks.

Takimeguri Kanka will be cleared when Ayato leaves the field. Using Kamisato Art: Kyouka again while in the Takimeguri Kanka state will reset and replace the pre-existing state.

Kamisato Art: Suiyuu (Elemental Burst)

Unveils a garden of purity that silences the cacophony within. While this space exists, Bloomwater Blades will constantly rain down and attack opponents within its AoE, dealing Hydro DMG and increasing the Normal Attack DMG of characters within.

Kamisato Art: Mine Wo Matoishi Kiyotaki (Unlocked at Ascension 4)

When Ayato uses his Elemental Skill and when the watery illusion explodes, he will gain a set amount of Namisen stacks.

Skill Effect – Obtain 12% All Elemental DMG Bonus. When other nearby party members use Elemental Skills, the character equipping this weapon will gain 1 Wavespike stack. Max 2 stacks. This effect can be triggered once every 0.3s. When the character equipping this weapon uses an Elemental Skill, all stacks of Wavespike will be consumed to gain Rippling Upheaval: each stack of Wavespike consumed will increase Normal Attack DMG by 20% for 8s.

2. Primordial Jade-Cutter

Base Attack: 44

Bonus Effect: CRIT Rate + 9.6% 

Skill Effect – HP increased by 20%. Additionally, provides an ATK Bonus based on 1.2% of the wielder’s Max HP.

Skill Effect – Increases DMG dealt by Normal and Charged Attacks by 20%. Additionally, regenerates 60% of ATK as HP when Normal and Charged Attacks score a CRIT Hit. This effect can occur once every 5s.

Ayato has Crit Damafe as his Ascension bonus so it makes sense to use a weapon with Crit Rate as the Bonus stat. Unfortunately, his best weapons are the two 5-star ones and a battle pass one. A free to play friendly option is the Amenoma Kageuchi.
