Kamisato Ayato is a solid Hydro character from Genshin Impact. Here are the pros and cons that players should know before pulling him.
During the Genshin Impact version 3.3 update, Kamisato Ayato will have a promotional banner that players can try to pull. Several other characters such as Kujo Sara, Rosalia, and Sayu will also join Ayato, giving fans the chance to earn a variety of 4-star characters. Ayato Kamisato faces stiff competition as there are other 5-star characters stronger than him, but his impressive abilities are unique enough to make him stand out.
Kamisato Ayato in Genshin Impact wields a sword and uses Hydro Vision in combat. Mainly focused on Hydro application, he has a talent that can apply Hyrdo status to enemies. This makes him a solid primary or secondary DPS character to support allies or be a hypercarry attacker.
Genshin Impact: Kamisato Ayato's Strengths
Kamisato Ayato's elemental skill puts him in an offensive state, and all his normal attacks will deal water damage to enemies. His damage output will also be greatly increased, making him a formidable damage dealer both in boss fights and against waves of opponents. The Hydro element is also considered one of the best elemental reactions in Genshin Impact, and thanks to Ayato's aggressive playstyle, players can Use other supports and sub-DPS characters like Xiang Ling to help him trigger these reactions.
Kamisato Ayato's elemental blast will rain down water droplets over a large area over a long period of time. Even if the player decides to swap Ayato for another character off the field, the talent will still work. Instead of being the one to trigger the reaction, Ayato can be a great Hydro enabler with this ability and will be the one to support the other allies.
Genshin Impact: Kamisato Ayato's Weaknesses
Although Ayato is strong in both DPS and sub-DPS roles, he is slightly behind when comparing him to the other Hydro characters in Genshin Impact. If a player needs a more powerful on-field hydro damage dealer, then Childe (Tartaglia) would be a better choice, as his hydro application far exceeds that of Ayatos. Other characters like Kokomi or Xingqiu are more effective for off-field Hydro Enablers, and can provide more than just damage, like healing. Also, building Ayato correctly can be difficult for free-to-play players, as there are very few f2p weapon options that can synergize with Ayato.
Kamisato Ayato also requires strict stats to use correctly. He relies on his elemental bursts; therefore, the player must increase his energy recharge. Ayato is also a damage dealer, so it is necessary to increase his ATK%, crit chance and crit damage. There is no doubt that players need to farm for the correct Artifacts in Genshin Impact, which consumes resources and time. Ayato may not be the best in any given category, but his ability to switch to different roles can make him an incredible asset for players.
