Damage Dealer

One of the most useful skills Ayato has is his Elemental Skill. However, his Elemental Skill disappears as soon as he is switched out for another character. We recommend using Ayato as one of the team’s DMG dealers because of this. Moreover, you can pair him up with powerful Support characters to maximize his DMG output.

Some recommended support characters are Bennett, Ganyu, and Raiden Shogun. These are the recommended characters because of the possible Elemental Reactions you can create with Ayato’s Hydro skillset.

Freeze Support

If you already have a main DPS on your team, you can maximize Ayato’s abilities by using him as Freeze Support. You can pair him with other powerful characters such as Ganyu and use his Elemental Burst for a powerful freeze comp.

However, Ayato’s Elemental Skill can generate high amounts of DMG. So keep that in mind if ever you plan on putting him on your team.
