After a lot of speculation and leaks, Kamisato Ayato has finally arrived as a playable character in Genshin Impact, leaving players wondering what the best team compositions for Ayato are. Ayato was added to Genshin Impact on March 30 as part of the game’s 2.6 update. The elder brother of Kamisato Ayaka and head of the Kamisato Clan, Ayato is a Hydro character that wields a sword, just like Genshin Impact’s Xingqiu. Ayato’s arrival in Genshin Impact has been one of the most anticipated in the game’s history and, fortunately for Ayato fans, he is finally here.
Ahead of Ayato’s release, players were made aware of the ultimate pairing to use with Ayato: his sister and Cryo user, Kamisato Ayaka. Aside from the obvious consonance of Ayato’s Hydro with Ayaka’s Cryo, the two siblings\’ abilities were designed to work in harmony. Genshin Impact\’s Ayaka is one of the strongest Cryo DPS in the game and can be used to freeze enemies in place when combined with Ayato’s Elemental Burst. To round off the team, players can add a second Cryo or Hydro user for elemental resonance, plus another Support or Healer.
If players don\’t have Ayaka or a similar Cryo DPS like Ganyu, they can opt for a non-freezing team that uses Ayato\’s Hydro abilities to trigger elemental reactions. Ayato\’s Hydro can be used well alongside Pyro or Electro, to trigger Vaporize and Electro-Charged elemental reactions. Genshin Impact has several free Pyro characters, like Outrider Amber and Liyue\’s best chef Xiangling, that even new players will be able to obtain without spending money.
Genshin Impact’s Best Team Composition For Kamisato Ayato
Kamisato Ayato will likely act as the Main DPS for any team he’s in and there are several good options for teams using Ayato in the Main DPS role:
Team One: Ayato (Hydro DPS), Yoimiya/Hu Tao (Pyro DPS used for Vaporize), Zhongli (Geo Shield/Support), Yun Jin (Geo Support used for resonance). Yoimiya and Hu Tao can be used interchangeably depending on which characters the player owns.Team Two: Ayato (Hydro DPS), Ayaka (Cryo DPS), Kazuha (Support), Kokomi (Hydro Support/Healer used for resonance). This team sees the Kamisato siblings fight side by side. Ayaka, one of Genshin Impact\’s Cryo characters, freezes enemies affected by Hydro thanks to Ayato.Team Three (F2P): Ayato (Hydro DPS), Beidou (Electro Sub DPS/Shield), Fischl (Electro Sub DPS), Bennett (Support/Healer). This electro-focused team uses Ayato to trigger the Electro-Charged elemental reaction. Bennett can be substituted for another Healer or Support.
Kamisato Ayato has finally arrived in Genshin Impact, much to the delight of fans. Ayato is a powerful Hydro DPS who can be used effectively alongside Pyro or Electro to trigger Vaporize and Electro-Charged elemental reactions, dealing devastating damage. Ayato is arguably most effective when used alongside his younger sister, Kamisato Ayaka, a powerful Cryo DPS who can freeze enemies in place. 5-star Hydro user Kamisato Ayato is an exciting addition to Genshin Impact and a fantastic Main DPS choice for any team composition.
