What is the best Ayaka build?
Ayaka is a sword-wielding cryo character, meaning we should have a better idea of her best build closer to release. We will update this section with the best weapons and artifacts to use with Ayaka as soon as we have a chance to try her out!
What are Ayaka’s skills?
According to Ayaka’s Honey Impact page, she is able to use the following skills. Please note that this information is subject to change.
|Kamisato Art – Naname||Perform up to five strikes|
|Kamisato Art – Naname (charged)||Consume stamina to unleash a stream of sword ki|
|Kamisato Art – Naname (plunging)||Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground, dealing AoE damage on impact|
|Kamisato Art – Hyouka||Ayaka emits ice around herself, then launches nearby enemies and deals cryo damage|
|Kamisato Art – Senho||Ayaka hides within a stream of sleet that moves as she does. In this form, Ayaka moves at high speed on water. When she reappears, cold is inflicted on nearby enemies, and normal attack damage is converted into cryo damage|
|Kamisato Art – Soumetsu||Ayaka gathers frost with her fan and sword to create bladestorms that advance forward. A bladestorm deals cryo damage over time to all enemies in its path. When it has finished moving, the bladestorm will burst, dealing AoE cryo damage|
|Daily Cooking||Ayaka gains one additional proficiency when a steamed dish is cooked perfectly|
|Kanten Senmyou Norito||Normal attacks against enemies affected by cryo have a 16% chance of shortening the cooldown of Kamisato Art – Hyouka by 0.5 seconds|
|Amatsumi Kunitsume Ihahigoto||While in Senho form, Ayaka marks enemies with below 30% HP. If you leave Senho form normal attacks deal cryo damage equal to 300% of attack against marked enemies|
