Skills for Ayato DPS Build in Genshin Impact
Ayato’s Normal attack is called Kamisato Art: Marobashi and its effects are:
- 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.
Ayato’s Elemental Skill, Kamisato Art: Kyouka, puts him into the Takimeguri Kanka state and leaves a watery illusion behind. The illusion explodes when enemies are nearby or when its duration ends, dealing Hydro AOE damage. When in this state, Ayato uses his Shunsuiken to engage in blindingly fast attacks, causing damage from his Normal Attacks to be converted into Hydro AOE damage.
Also after a Shunsuiken hits an opponent, it grants Ayato the Namisen effect, which increases the damage dealt based on Ayato’s current Max HP. The initial maximum number of Namisen stacks is 4 and 1 stack is gained through Shunsuiken every 0,1s. Ayato’s resistance to interruption is increased as well but he is unable to use Charged or Plunging Attacks.
His Elemental Burst, Kamisato Art: Suiyuu, creates a space where Bloomwater Blades will constantly rain down and attack enemies, dealing Hydro damage but also increasing Normal Attack damage of characters within.
