Before Kamisato Ayato, we had Kamisato Ayaka. She was released back in the 2.0 version of Genshin Impact.  When she was first released, players were hesitant to pull for her. However, she’s one of the most effective Cryo DPS characters in Genshin Impact. Read on to know the best build for Ayaka.

Best Kamisato Ayaka build for Cryo DPS

Because of Ayaka’s Elemental Burst and Skill, she can easily inflict Cryo DMG on enemies. Equip her with the right set of artifacts and weapons and you’ll clear out mobs with ease. Additionally, she is a great Cryo DPS because of her ability to inflict Cryo infusion.

If you’re torn between making her your team’s Main or Sub DPS, the build in this guide can be used for both roles. The only adjustment you have to make is how you make use of her in combat.

The Mistsplitter Reforged available in the limited-time weapon banner is the best weapon for Ayaka. However, you can also make use of the Primordial Jade Cutter or Amenoma Kageuchi

Recommended artifact set

If you’re looking for the best artifact set for Ayaka, you can never go wrong with Blizzard Strayer. Moreover, equipping her with a 4-set Blizzard Strayer will give you the following set bonuses:

  • Cryo DMG Bonus +15%
  • When a character attacks an enemy affected by Cryo, their CRIT Rate is increased by 20%. If the enemy is Frozen, CRIT Rate is increased by an additional 20%.

But before you equip her with these artifacts, make sure to check the artifacts’ substats. Here are the recommended artifact substats for Ayaka:

  • ATK%
  • Cryo DMG Bonus

We recommend prioritizing Ayaka’s Elemental Burst, Kamisato Art: Soumetsu, when leveling up her Talents. Both her Normal Attack and Elemental Skill should be your second priority.
