Genshin Impact is an RPG game that came out on mobile phones, PlayStation 4 and personal computers. With each update, new playable characters appear in it. On July 21, 2021, the pantheon of heroes will be replenished with Ayaka, a five-star swordsman who wields cold magic. In this article, we have collected everything you need to know about this heroine.

How to get Ayaka

Ayaka is coming to Genshin Impact with Update 2.0, along with a temporary banner called The Heron's Court, which will be available from July 21 to August 10, 2021.

Ayaki's active talents

  • Kamisato's Art: Naname (Normal Attack). Ayaka inflicts up to 5 blows with Ayaki's sword. The charged version of this attack is a barrage of blades. In this case, the heroine's stamina is consumed. If you make a fall attack, you will deal area damage.
  • Kamisato Art: Hyoka (elemental skill). With this spell, all enemies around Ayaka are thrown into the air and take ice damage (Cryo).
  • The Art of Kamisato: Sometsu (Elemental Explosion). Ayaka creates streams of swords that attack with ice magic (Cryo) anyone who gets in their way. In addition, explosions occur, which cause damage in the area.
  • The Art of Kamisato: Senho (Alternate Sprint). Ayaka moves across the battlefield with great speed. After the end of the sprint, she casts Cryo status on all nearby enemies, and her sword deals additional cold damage. In addition, the alternative sprint allows you to move on water. Keep in mind that it wastes Ayaka's stamina.

The best weapon and artifact builds for Ayaka

Ayaka is a character with a lot of damage, so you should increase it. We recommend using a sword called "The Precious Pool" as a weapon. It increases health by 20%, and your attack gets a bonus to attack in the form of 1.2% of the character's maximum health. An alternative option is the Black Sword. It increases your normal and charged attacks by 20%, and when you deal critical damage, there is a chance to restore health in the amount of 60% of your attack. The effect can occur once every 5 seconds. You can get weapons with the help of prayers.

Of the artifacts, the Lost in the Blizzard set is the best option. It increases damage from cold magic (Cryo) by 15%, and when attacking enemies with Cryo status, the chance to deal critical damage is increased by 20%. If the enemy is frozen, then the probability of a critical attack increases by another 20%. This effect occurs when ice spells are combined with water magic (Hydro). You can find artifacts from this set during the passage of the Vindagnir Peak dungeon.  If you just want to increase your attack, then use the "Gladiator's End" set. It increases attack power by 18% and an additional 35% when using a sword or spear. You can knock out artifacts from this set from elite and world bosses.

Ayaki's advantages and disadvantages


  • High base damage, enhanced by ice magic (Cryo).
  • Fast recovery of elemental skill.
  • The ability to move on water.


  • High speed of character movement, which makes it more difficult to control Ayaka than other heroines.
  • Low level of protection.

How do I play Ayaka? What heroes work well on a team with Ayaku?

Ayaka can become your main character, that is, the hero that deals maximum damage. Due to the combination of elements, it will be especially effective against fire, water and electrical opponents. In a team with Ayaka, it is worth taking characters who own the magic of water (Hydro) and electricity. You can protect yourself from enemy attacks with the help of the Crystallization effect, which can be caused by earth spells (Geo).

Optimal team composition with Ayaka:

  • Mona, Xing Qiu or Tartaglia (hydro characters);
  • Bei Dou, Ke Qing, Razor or Fischl (electric characters);
  • Albedo, Ning Guang, Noelle or Zhong Li (geo-characters);
  • Barbara, Qi Qi or Jinn (healers).
