Kamisato Ayaka, commonly referred to as Ayaka, is a Cryo character in Genshin Impact who currently stands as the \”queen of DPS\” on multiple community tier lists. Since her debut following the introduction of the Inazuma region, Ayaka has consistently made it to the top charts as a damage dealer, excelling in both paid and free-to-play builds. Similar to Mona\’s Illusory Torrent, Ayaka\’s Alternate Sprint, Kamisato Art: Senho, grants her \”free\” Cryo application to nearby enemies. This passive, paired with her other potent and high-scaling AoE Cryo abilities, allows her to effortlessly diminish the HP of even the strongest enemies within seconds.
However, unlike Ganyu in Genshin Impact, Ayaka is slightly more rigid when it comes to optimal team compositions for both paid and F2P approaches. Due to her high affinity and focus on Cryo, pairing her with comps that prioritize proccing Melt or Superconduct are viable yet do not capitalize her Cryo damage output. Accordingly, Ayaka\’s ideal party members would ensure she is able to inflict her targets with \”permafreeze,\” repeatedly applying Cryo until the enemy is dead.

With the above information in mind, the best F2P team comp for Ayaka in Genshin Impact would be a Freeze-focus party with only one potential alteration, depending on the situation or the player\’s needs. These party members include Ayaka, Xingqiu, the Traveler (Ameno), and the alternative option between Kaeya or Diona, assuming players got at least one of these characters for free during the past Lantern Rite event or Energy Amplifier Initiation.
F2P Team Comps For Ayaka In Genshin Impact: Which Free Characters Are Best
Xingqiu, Traveler, and Kaeya are the best F2P choices for Ayaka since they enable her to efficiently deal damage, quickly freeze enemies, provide decent AoE CC, and employ extra Cryo application. Xingqiu\’s primary objective is to utilize his Guhua Sword abilities to continuously affect enemy targets with Hydro, triggering Freeze from Ayaka. The Ameno variation of the Traveler provides the team with Gust Surge, an ability that offers CC and an AoE pull to bunch enemies together. The Viridescent Venerer Artifact Set is a must-have for the Traveler or any Anemo replacement in this team comp. Finally, Kaeya offers bonus Cryo application and enhanced energy recharge with the bonus elemental particles produced by Glacial Heart, unlocked after his 4th Ascension in Genshin Impact.
An alternative team comp for Ayaka in Genshin Impact would still have the same characteristics and objectives mentioned above, but Kaeya\’s energy recharge bonus would be replaced with Diona\’s shielding and healing. While Ayaka is not notably fragile, she can take a lot of damage from enemy attacks, as her combative abilities are melee-based. Similarly, F2P players who have trouble with challenging enemy mechanics and avoiding damage should consider having Diona in Ayaka\’s team comp to ensure the DPS queen\’s survival. With Diona, Ayaka users still receive the Shattering Ice Elemental bonus yet can endure more mistakes, thanks to the cat bartender\’s support in Genshin Impact.
