The best Genshin Impact Ayato build is something that every player would wish to know to utilize the best of the Hydro Sword user.
Genshin Impact has blown up during the past months. It is definitely one of the most popular action role-playing games out there, developed by miHoYo. And the secret of such success can be attributed to the fact that the developers have been pumping out new updates every now and then.
One such update (2.6 patch) is the soon-to-be-released 5-star Hydro Swordsman, Genshin Impact Ayato, who can drench his enemies, literally and figuratively. He is one of the most-awaited releases, just like Yae Miko. Many travelers are saving their Primogems for his banner. And the best way to get ready for this character is to see how you can exploit his abilities the best. And that is precisely what this post discusses.
To build the best Genshin Impact Ayato build, you have to use a lot of powerful weapons found in Genshin Impact, as well as Artifacts. Together, they can double or treble the damage. Ayaka is his younger sibling and he is the head of the Kamisato Clan, so is obviously known for his deadly swordsmanship and also for his diplomacy and grace.
As Ayato is a Hydro character, it makes sense that he uses liquid illusions that bait his enemies in and then rain down ferocious AoE attacks, which are astonishingly precise. Use this Genshin Impact Ayato build here to add the Pillar of Fortitude to your roster and thank us later.

Genshin Impact Ayato’s abilities
Here are all the abilities of Kamisato Ayato, our upcoming 5-star character.
The first one is the Normal Attack. Ayato can execute up to 5 rapid attacks.
The second is Charged Attack. In this, he performs a fast, charged iai slash that is more powerful than the usual strike and uses some of his stamina in the process.
The last one is the Plunging Attack. This is executed from the air. Ayato hurtles down from the air onto his enemy and strikes all the enemies standing nearby with an AoE on contact.
Genshin Impact Ayato’s Elemental Skill: Kamisato Art – Kyouka
Ayato’s Elemental Skill allows him to move from one location to another, leaving a liquid illusion in his wake. While doing this, he enters the Soukai Kanka state. The illusion baits the targets in and explodes after a short while, or when attacked, whichever is early. The explosion strikes an AoE hydro damage to nearby hit enemies.
Now, when Ayato is in the Soukai Kanka state, he utilizes his Shunsuiken to deal lightning-fast strikes. Plus, these strikes deliver Hydro damage and grant Ayato the Wave Flash effect, which adds to his next attack damage, which is based on the current max HP.
In total, 4 Wave Flash stacks can be acquired. In addition, one more stack can be gained through the Shunsuiken state every 0.1 seconds. This stops as soon as the Soukai Kanka state ends.
Genshin Impact Ayato’s Elemental Burst: Kamisato Art – Suiyuu
Ayato adds water to his sword and attacks the art in front of him, causing Bloomwater Blades to come dashing down all around in a large circle. When these globs of water hit the ground, they explode and deal AoE Hydro damage to all the targets hit.
One more advantage is that within this skill’s radius, other players, excluding Genshin Impact Ayato, get their attack speeds increased due to the Bloomwater Blades.

Genshin Impact Ayato’s constellations
Getting your hands on Genshin Impact Ayato is one thing. But to unlock higher copies of him is the ultimate goal of every Genshin enthusiast. Let’s discuss the different levels of this character.
Level 1 is Kyouka Fushi. For enemies who have their HP below 50%, the Shunsuiken damage gets increased by 30%.
Level 2 is World Source. You can now have a maximum of 5 stacks of the Wave Flash. And when Kamisato Ayato has three or more stacks, his maximum HP increases by 40%.
Level 3 is Gensui Ichiro. The level of Kamisto Art: Suiyuu is augmented by 3. The max level of upgrade is 15.
Level 4 is Endless Flow. All nearby players after a Kamisto Art: Suiyuu attack, including Ayato, deal 20% more Normal Attack damage for 10 seconds.
Level 5 is To Admire the Flowers. Level of Kamisato Art: Suiyuu is increased by 3. 15 is the max upgrade.
Level 6 is Boundless Origin. After Kamisato Art: Kyouka, the Shunsuiken will make additional two Shunsuiken strikes as they hit the enemies. Each one of these causes 300% more damage as they hit the enemies. Neither of the Shunsuiken strikes is affected by wave flash.
Top Genshin Impact Ayato Artifacts
To create the best Genshin Impact Ayato build, use the Heart of Depth Artifact set. This augments the Hydro Damage Bonus by 15%. On top of this, it increases the Normal Attack and Charged Attack damage by 30% for 15 seconds when the Elemental Skill is used.
Using the Elemental Skill frequently has its own reward. So use this Artifact set and see the improvement by combining it with the Wave Flash stacks. And this gives you an astounding build.
But, if you are unable to use this set, there definitely are other options. First, there is the ordinary Noblesse Oblige set, at 205 for both Elemental Burst damage and team attack buff. Use this when Ayato is used as a sub DPS.
There is the Martial Artist set as well. The two-piece set augments Normal and Charged Attack damage by 15%. And the four-piece set does it by 25% for 8 seconds after the use of the Elemental Skill.
Also, be on the lookout for an Artifact set that has been designed by the developers, especially for Ayato. But that aside, these three will be more than enough to unleash Ayato’s true power.

Genshin Impact Ayato gameplay
The developers have revealed the official Ayato gameplay. It gives us a view of the Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst.
Top Genshin Impact Ayato weapons
The best weapon for Ayato is an unreleased, which kind of makes sense. The Haran Tsukishiro Futsu is a 5-star Sword that gives Genshin Impact Ayato a 12% Elemental Damage Bonus. If nearby party members hit enemies with the Normal Attack, Ayato acquires one stack of Wavespike. This increases the Attack Damage by 8% for 8 seconds.
As if to flex, the developers decided to let Ayato acquire five stacks maximum, with the effect being applied every 0.3 seconds. Players get rewarded for teaming up with other units and switching out Ayato. With Ayato as a sub or main DPS, this weapon is the top choice.
But, there’s a catch. It is a bit overkill to use with a brand new character and weapon. Maybe you can use something like Primordial Jade Cutter or Mistsplitter Reforged, both five-star Swords. Blackcliff Longsword is a good choice for a four-star budget.
Some basic properties of some of the best weapons for Ayato are given below.
- Haran Tsukishiro Futsu: You get 12% All Elemental DMG Bonus. The character using this weapon gets one stack of Wavespike when nearby party members attack enemies with Normal Attacks. The max is 5 stacks. The trigger rate is one per 0.3 seconds.
- Mistsplitter Reforged: You get a 12% Elemental DMG Bonus for each element and acquire the strength of Misplitter’s Emblem. For stack levels 1,2 and 3, you get an 8, 16, 28% Elemental DMG Bonus respectively for the character’s Elemental Type. The stack’s duration varies for individual stacks.
- Primordial Jade Cutter: HP gets increased by 20% and you get an ATK Bonus based on 1.2% of the max HP of the wielder.
