Looking for the best Genshin Impact Ayaka build? Ayaka hails from the Inazuma region and is a five-star Cryo sword wielder, and the daughter of the Yashiro Commission’s Kamisato Clan, one of the most powerful families in Inazuma. Ayaka has become a great candidate for freeze teams as a DPS main with a focus on dealing critical hits.

Kamisato Ayaka has quickly become a high-ranking character in our Genshin Impact tier list. Here’s the best Ayaka build advice, including which artifacts and weapons to pick, as well as the best Genshin Impact characters to round out your party.

The best Ayaka DPS build is:

  • Sword: Mistsplitter Reforged
  • Artifacts: Blizzard Strayer (four-set)

The Mistsplitter Reforged is the best weapon for Ayaka as it suits her perfectly, but you could also go for the five-star Haran Geppaku Futsu.

Mistsplitter Reforged automatically provides a 12% elemental damage bonus, and it activates the Mistsplitter’s Emblem after Ayaka lands a normal attack. This ability has three levels, dealing 8%, 16%, and 28% elemental damage bonus depending on which attacks Ayaka uses and how much energy she has left. Ayaka can easily trigger each of the three levels without having to adjust her playstyle purely for the sword’s abilities.

In terms of the best Ayaka artifact set, the meta is still to run a four-piece Blizzard Strayer, which is an easy choice for Cryo characters in general. Using this set, Cryo attacks deal 15% more damage, and Ayaka’s crit rate increases to 40% if her opponent is frozen. Echoes of an Offering is another interesting option for short, burst damage.

For F2P players, you could opt for the Blackcliff Longsword as this is easily Ayaka’s best weapon that doesn’t require excessive amounts of wishes.
