Genshin Impact’s new 1.6 update looms closely and is set to release on the date of June 9, 2021. As the new patch 1.6 lands, new characters from a new soon-to-be-released region, Inazuma will be released in the game. 4 characters are set to be released in the Midsummer Island Adventure update. These are the likes of Kazuha, Yoimiya, Ayaka and Sayu. In this Genshin Impact guide, we will talk about all you need to know about Kamisato Ayaka, her builds and the materials required for Ascension.
Genshin Impact Ayaka: Playstyle and skill-set
Kamisato Ayaka is the daughter of the Yashiro Commission’s Kamisoto Clan from Inazuma. She is a kind-hearted samurai who likes working with her elder brother. Ayaka is a 5-star Cryo sword user with her constellation being Grus Nivis. The following are her talents, skills, and attacks:
|Name / Description||Type|
|Kamisato Art: Naname||Normal Attack|
|Ayaka performs up to 5 consecutive rapid strikes.|
|Kamisato Art: Naname||Charged attack|
|Ayaka consumes stamina, unleashing a stream of sword ki attacks.|
|Kamisato Art: Naname||Plunge attack|
|Ayaka plunges from the air with her hits the ground, damaging enemies around her as she lands.|
|Kamisato Art: Senho||Alternative Sprint|
|Ayaka, just like Mona, has an alternative sprint called Kamisato Art: Senho, which lets her hide and slide in the cold small fog around her. This deals cryo damage as she emerges.|
|Kamisato Art: Hyouka||Elemental Skill|
|Ayaka will create a ring of ice around herself, launching enemies around her. It would inflict AoE Cryo damage.|
|Kamisato Art: Soumetsu||Elemental Burst|
|Ayaka gathers cryo energies in her fan and sword. Later, she unleashes them to her enemies creating three sword storms. This will be much like the anemo traveler’s tornado. After some time, it explodes dealing bonus cryo damage.|
- Kanten Senmyou Norito: Normal attacks to cryo-inflicted enemies have a 6 to 18% chance of reducing the cooldown of her elemental skill Hyouka by 0.5 seconds.
- Amatsumi Kunisumi Ihaigoto: Ayaka leaves her marks to nearby opponents that have less than 30% health when in the Kamisoto Art – Senhou form. Leaving her Senhou form near targeted opponents, she can instantly hit them with a normal attack. This deals a lot of Cryo damage, which is equal to 300 % of her attack. This attack is considered a charged attack.
Sets to farm for Ayaka in Genshin Impact
There are two recommended artifact sets for Ayaka, which include the likes of ‘Blizzard Strayer’ and Gladiator’s Finale’. Both of these sets are great on Ayaka for different reasons. While Gladiator’s Finale would greatly increase her damage potential, Blizzard Strayer would greatly increase her supportive DPS capabilities with her cryo skills.

Best weapons for Ayaka in Genshin Impact
With Ayaka being a DPS or a support DPS character, weapons with a greater Attack %, Crit rate and Team buffs would be of a great addition to her abilities.
- Skyward blade (5*)
- The black sword (4*)
- Sacrificial sword (4*)
- The flute (4*)
With all that being said, we cannot wait for the addition of Ayaka in the game. Her cryo damage line-up would be a great addition to the rosters in Genshin Impact. We all can’t wait for her banner to come to life, especially the Inazuma region in particular.
