Ayato’s Abilities in Genshin Impact

Kamisato Ayato is a Hydro elemental user of a 5-star rarity. He uses a sword as his primary choice of weapon. He belongs to the Inazuma region. And if we have an overview of his character then we can assure you that he is fast at slashing enemies. His ability set is quite an amazing one as you can see below;


  • As a normal attack, Ayato deals five quick strikes to the enemy.
  • As a charged attack, he performs a counter-attack while dashing forth.
  • As a plunging attack, he hits the ground from the mid-air position and inflicts quite the damage to the enemies in its close range.


  • Through his elemental skill, Ayato enters the Soukai Kanka state and summons a clone that is made of water. This clone taunts the enemies around it, attracting their attention. After some time, the clone explodes and it inflicts heavy Hydro DMG on the enemies in its vicinity.
  • Ayato summons the Shunsuiken, which is a water blade, and performs quick-paced attacks with it. And with every hit, he receives a Wave Flash that stacks up and increases damage infliction based on his maximum health point.
  • Also, while Ayato remains in his Soukai Kanka state, every single attack he does would inflict Hydro DMG instead of Physical DMG on the enemies. Once he leaves this state, this change is reversed.


  • When Ayato activates his elemental skill, a blue circle pops up on the ground. The enemies who stand within this area get heavy Hydro DMG called the Bloomwater Blade.
  • Any party member standing within this blue circle gets a significant attack boost, but this doesn’t affect Ayato.

Ayato’s Banner

Ayato has been available in the game since the Genshin Impact 2.6 update went live. The banner in which you will find him is called the “Azure Excursion” Banner.
