Build Energy Recharge With CR/CD

For Burst focused Ayato, it is important to have at least 180 to 200 Energy Recharge for a consistent uptime of Elemental Burst. Noblesse Oblige 4 piece is great if there are no other Noblesse holders since the buff from the artifact does not stack.

Anonymous 26

How much does his Burst increase NA damage if his talent level is maxed, not counting cons? Is it more than say, Yunjin c2, or Thoma c6?

Anonymous 25

Ayato is SS tier, srsly needs to be changed. The game has equal characters and if you build them correctly they all have potential to be SS.

Anonymous 24

Ayato S tier? Waifu collectors downvote him. He is a true SS tier DPS!

Anonymous 23

He is the best! Handsome, rich, strong. Ayato is a really OP DPS. People talking bad about him because he is a male character and not a wifu. Haha
