4-Piece Blizzard Strayer Makes Ayaka Easier To Build

While 2 piece ATK% 5 star Artifact and 2 piece Blizzard Strayer has higher damage potential. 4-Piece Blizzard Strayer makes it a lot easier to build Ayaka because of the amount of Crit Rate it provides. It is recommended to use 4pc Blizzard Strayer as a transition artifact while you are still farming for your final set.

2-Piece Blizzard Strayer & 2-Piece Noblesse Oblige For Burst Support

This build for Ayaka focuses on increasing the Elemental Burst of Ayaka which is already very powerful on its own. This build, however, decreases the damage from Elemental Skill, Normal Attacks and Charged Attack. If you want to use Ayaka with another DPS (double DPS teams), it is recommended to use this build.

Most Of Her Damage Comes From Skill + Attack

Ayaka already has an high percentage for her normal attack but this is further powered when her elemental skill hits. Maximize the damage of Ayaka by minding the combo between these two.

Uses Of Ayaka's Elemental Burst

Continues Cryo DMG Great For Frozen Enemies

Cryo 2

Ayaka's Elemental Burst summons a powerful wave of Icy Wind that will greatly damage enemies on its path. The wind slows down once it lands on the opponents enabling multiple damage that will surely drain the HP of enemies and inflict Cryo multiple times.

Strengths Of Ayaka

Ayaka Spreads Cryo Element Easily

One of the best feature of Ayaka is her ability to spread Cryo fast through her dash, normal attacks and skills. If paired with a Hydro character, she can easily perma freeze them.

Top Class DPS With Little To No Down Time

Ayaka can produce powerful damage using all of her skills from Normal Attack down to Elemental Burst. There are no wasted Talent when it comes to Ayaka.

Weaknesses Of Ayaka

May Be Difficult To Maximize Damage From Elemental Burst Outside Freeze Comps

Ayaka's Elemental Burst continuously deal Cryo DMG to enemies however it is rather difficult to hit nimble enemies with it. Gathering Enemies and freezing them will be the easiest way to do it making Ayaka pair well with Crowd Control characters such as Venti & Kazuha.

What Do You Think Ayaka's Tier Is?

Featured User Review

"not really an Ayaka main or simp, but I gotta admit she's frickin good. She's not that picky with supports (anyone that can apply hydro is fine, even Childe) and an F2P Friendly imo (F2P btw). I guess she deserves to be an SS tier character"

Ayaka Story Overview

The Eldest Daughter Of The Kamisato Clan

With her family leading the Yashiro Commission, Ayaka is admired for her lady-like grace, beauty, and kindness. She's well-versed in different cultural arts and is seen as perfect by her peers.

Recruits The Traveler To Their Cause

It's Ayaka who approached the Traveler to help in going against the Vision Hunt Decree of the Shogunate. Although she's not part of the frontlines, it's her initiative that drives the rebellion forward.

Voicelines About Kamisato Ayaka

Voicelines About Kamisato Ayaka
YoimiyaYoimiyaAbout Seriousness: We cooperate a lot due to work. Unlike people in the other two Commissions, she always lets me finish speaking and answers me seriously without showing any impatience. I'd say that the word "ladylike" was practically made just for her
About Baths: We once discussed matters concerning the summer festival deep into the night. We were both really tired, and I invited her to go take a bath. But when she heard that it involved many people bathing in the same pool, she went red in an instant! That was when I first learned that noble ladies can't use public baths
KazuhaKazuhaI'm sure everyone living in Inazuma has heard of the Shirasagi Himegimi. The lady of the Kamisato Clan is as perfect as person can be, though our paths have seldom crossed. I wonder what she thinks of the state of Inazuma today?
Kujou SaraKujou SaraIn the Kujou household, normally the only sound to be heard is that of soldiers training in the dojo. But in the Kamisato household, there is the sound of music, dance, bickering, and laughter... I have heard that Miss Kamisato is skilled in the game of Go, and have always hoped for an occasion to pay her a visit, but... I also worry that someone of a serious demeanor like myself may not quite fit in there.
GorouGorouThe Yashiro Commission operates as part of the Shogunate, but on many issues they tend to side with the people of Inazuma. In fact, the Shirasagi Himegimi has managed to establish an excellent reputation for herself, despite facing pressure from both sides. I suppose she must know how to keep her composure at all times and navigate sensitive situations tactfully... There's much I could learn from her.

Anonymous 47

Hi this is Anon 46 the passive of his weapon would work so much better than jade cutter for her, may I ask why the weapon isn't listed?

Anonymous 46

Is Ayato's sword good on her? I have her running double cryo with 4 piece blizzard strayer but if I gave her the weapon she'd crit every hit, then I could focus on crit dmg artifacts

Anonymous 45

Lost my 50/50 to Jean on the rerun, but got (2) ayaka on my second 10 pull for my guaranteed.

Anonymous 45

Anon 44, you just need 20~39 pulls to get her.
