Elemental Skill KamisatoArtKyoukaAyatoCharactersGenshinImpact.png Kamisato Art: Kyouka Kamisato Ayato shifts positions and enters the Takimeguri Kanka state. After this shift, he will leave a watery illusion at his original location. After it is formed, the watery illusion will explode if opponents are nearby or after its duration ends, dealing AoE Hydro DMG. Takimeguri Kanka: In this state, Kamisato Ayato uses his Shunsuiken to engage in blindingly fast attacks, causing DMG from his Normal Attacks to be converted into AoE Hydro DMG. This cannot be overridden. It also has the following properties: After a Shunsuiken attack hits an opponent, it will grant Ayato the Namisen effect, increasing the DMG dealt by Shunsuiken based on Ayato’s current Max HP. The initial maximum number of Namisen stacks is 4, and 1 stack can be gained through Shunsuiken every 0.1s. This effect will be dispelled when Takimeguri Kanka ends. Kamisato Ayato’s resistance to interruption is increased. Unable to use Charged or Plunging Attacks. Takimeguri Kanka will be cleared when Ayato leaves the field. Using Kamisato Art: Kyouka again while in the Takimeguri Kanka state will reset and replace the pre-existing state.
Elemental Burst KamisatoArtSuiyuuAyatoCharactersGenshinImpact.png Kamisato Art: Suiyuu Unveils a garden of purity that silences the cacophony within. While this space exists, Bloomwater Blades will constantly rain down and attack opponents within its AoE, dealing Hydro DMG and increasing the Normal Attack DMG of characters within.

Hydro DPS Build

Kamisato Ayato is a Main DPS who you’ll want to keep on the field as much as possible utilizing his Elemental Skill as often as possible. You’ll want to use your Elemental Burst just before you use the Elemental Skill to get maximum damage out of it as the Elemental Burst will buff the damage. Another thing worth noting is if you need to switch him out for a bit, he’ll regenerate 2 energy a second due to the passive Kamisato Art: Michiyuku Hagetsu.

Talent Priority

Your main talent to focus on should be his Elemental Skill: Kamisato Art: Kyouka. You want to focus on this skill first as this is where the brunt of Ayato’s damage will come from due to Shunsuiken which’ll make his normal attacks lightning fast. After that is maxed out, focus on his Elemental Burst: Kamisato Art: Suiyuu.
