After much speculation, the head of the Kamisato Clan Kamisato Ayato has finally been confirmed for Genshin Impact, and players who want to pull for him are going to want to farm his materials before he’s released. Kamisato Ayato is the older brother of the well-loved eldest daughter of the Kamisato Clan, Kamisato Ayaka. His similarly cool and mature demeanor has already made him another hit amongst fans.
Kamisato Ayato is a 5-Star Hydro Sword user expected to be coming to Genshin Impact in the 2.6 update. Players who want to build him as soon as he’s released will need plenty of materials to level up his base level, talents, and artifacts. Here’s every domain players are going to need to farm and what items they’re going to need to start collecting to prepare for Ayato.
It’s important to note that since Ayato is an Inazuman character, almost all of his necessary ascension materials can only be found in Inazuma. Players can only get to Inazuma after reaching Adventure Rank 30 and completing the necessary Archon Quests (including the Mondstadt and Liyue Archon storylines).
Farming Items and Materials For Kamisato Ayato in Genshin Impact
In terms of leveling up Ayato, players will need the basic EXP Adventure Books that can be obtained by farming the blue Leylines found around the world. To ascend Ayato, players will need Varunada Lazurite, Sakura Blooms, Handguards, and Dew of Repudiations. Sakura Blooms is an Inazuman specialty found worldwide as floating purple auras, which players can collect by interacting with them using Electro. Handguards can be obtained by killing Nobushis and Kairagis, which are the common samurai-looking enemies that also appear all around Inazuma.
Varunada Lazurite is the Hydro gemstone that can be collected by defeating most of the weekly bosses (except for the Raiden Shogun, La Signora, or the Wolf of the North). Players will also need Dew of Repudiations to ascend Ayato beyond Level 40. These can be obtained by defeating the Hydro Hypostasis in Genshin Impact, which also drops Varunada Lazurites. Because of this, players are better off battling the Hydro Hypostasis repeatedly to obtain more resources they need at once.
To level up Ayato’s talents, players are going to need Handguards and Elegance talent scrolls. These can be obtained by doing the Violet Court domain on either Tuesday, Friday, or Sunday. Players will also need the item Mudra of the Malefic General, which has a chance of being dropped by the weekly Raiden Shogun boss battle at Level 70+.
Finally, in terms of artifacts, Ayato is speculated to be a Hydro DPS user based on his leaked abilities. Thus, players will likely want to use a 4-piece Heart of Depth set to increase his Hydro DMG output. This artifact set can be farmed at the Peak Of Vindagnyr Domain, which can be found at the peak of Dragonspine. Additionally, players will want to farm for artifacts that have a lot of Crit Rate, Crit DMG, and ATK. Once players have farmed all these items, they’ll be completely prepared to build a hard-hitting Ayato on the day of his release.
