We have brought you the Genshin Impact Ayaka guide with some of the best tips and tricks. From our guide, you’ll learn everything about Ayaka. 

Ayaka is a sweet-tempered young lady with a pleasant demeanor who treats people with kindness and respect. She adores the people of Inazuma and goes out of her way to help them in any way she can; as a member of the Yashiro Commission, she feels responsible to meet their needs. 

She has a serious demeanor and is a perfectionist. Her dedication has affected others, and those close to her have given her the honorary title of Shirasagi Himegimi. People in the neighborhood have a lot of respect for her. 

She is 156 cm tall, which is a bit shorter than average. Ayaka was born on September 28th. She wears a black armored helmet with gold ornamentation and has her long, pale white-blue hair in a high ponytail. Her hair is trimmed in a hime style, and she frames her face with equally chopped strands connected by pink cords tied in cloverleaf knots. Her blue-gray eyes are accented by thick lashes on her left eye and a mole on her left temple. Learn more about Ayaka from our Genshin Impact Ayaka guide.

Genshin Impact Ayaka Guide: Mistsplitter Reforged

The arrival of Ayaka brings into play her signature sword, the Mistsplitter Reforged, a powerful katana enhanced with Electro energy to boost her Elemental ability. As part of the Inazuma Series, this weapon emits a blazing violet light, providing great versatility and a powerful option to generate devastating Elemental Reactions. In addition to gaining 12/15/18/21/24% elemental DMG bonuses, Ayaka will receive the Might of Mistsplitter’s Seal when she wields the Mistsplitter Reforged.

Ayaka is best as the main DPS

With Akaka’s Element, she can apply powerful Cryo-based reactions like Melt and Superconduct to her attacks. Due to her consistent use of the Cryo Element, she seems like a Sub DPS, DPS. However, due to the potentially devastating damage, she can do, it is recommended to consider her as a Main DPS.

Genshin Impact Ayaka Guide: Primordial Jade Cutter

Next in the list of recommended weapons is the Primordial Jade Cutter, a 5-star sword that, although not refined to the fullest extent, grants more damage with each hit based on your HP stats. This will definitely help Ayaka increase her DPS.

A passive effect of this ability is Protector’s Virtue, which increases the wielder’s HP by 20/25/30/35/40%. Further, increases the wielder’s maximum HP by 1.2/1.5/1.8/2.1/2.4%. In addition, the Primordial Jade Cutter is the only five-star weapon that starts at 44 Base ATK and scales from there.  It scales between levels, however, at a lower rate than 44 Base ATK four-star weapons.

Best Artifact for Ayaka

Blizzard Strayer: We recommend that you choose the Blizzard Strayer set for her artifacts, the series of artifacts introduced during the addition of Dragonspine Mountain since their Cryo DMG bonus will increase your Elemental skills’ power significantly.

When you get four pieces from this set, Ayaka’s CRIT Rate will rise by 20% when she attacks an opponent who is affected by Cryo. A 20% increase in CRIT Rate will be applied if the opponent is frozen. The Gladiator’s Finale set, which increases your ATK by 18% as well, can be combined with it if you don’t have all pieces.

Best Constellations for Ayaka

C1: Snowswept Sakura – Charged attacks and normal attacks have a 50% chance of reducing an elemental skill’s cooldown by 0.3 seconds.

C6: Dance of Suigetsu – The “Usurahi Batou” effect increases Ayaka’s charged attacks’ damage by 298% every 10 seconds. Charge attacks will end this effect when they strike an enemy, and the 10-second timer will start over.

Ayaka’s Alternate Sprint

The alternate sprint is an essential part of Ayaka’s kit. Rather than running along like the rest of the adventurers, Ayaka envelops herself in a cloud of frozen fog, moving extremely fast over land and water. Her body reappears when she stops sprinting, and she applies Cryo to any enemies standing nearby. Cryo is also infused into her blade, causing her to deal an extra amount of elemental damage for a few seconds.

Best team for Ayaka

Using Ayaka as the main DPS in Genshin Impact will require you to use Cryo and Hydro’s reaction to freeze enemies. This is where Xingqiu excels, as it provides excellent support without having to spend a lot of time on the battlefield.

The addition of Diona and Kaeya enables Diona to gain the Cryo Resonance bonus and reduce her dependency on Elemental Mastery. The squad is rounded out nicely by a character from Anemo like Venti, Kazuha, or Sucrose, as they typically group up enemies for the Elemental Burst.

Kanten Senmyou is the best passive of Ayaka

During Senho, Ayaka restores 10 stamina and gains 18% bonus Cryo damage for ten seconds if Cryo is applied to enemies.

Say No to Physical Ayaka Build!

Having Ayaka build on Physical will minimize her potential, as her attacks are infused with Cryo after her Alternate Sprint. By building Ayaka with Cryo, players will maximize her damage. As a result, her entire kit will be enhanced; Normal attack, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Burst. Also, the cryo build allows Ayaka to assume the role of Sub-DPS at any time.

In the wake of the storm, Ayaka unleashes Frostflake Seki no To and it surges forwards. Ice storms inflict Cryo damage on enemies they touch and explode when they are done, dealing AoE damage.
