Moon among the clouds
Competence level Kamisato school: Ice flower +3
Kamisato Ayaka glows with a Frozen Grace every 10 seconds, increasing the damage done by his charged attack by 298%. This effect cancels 0.5 seconds after Ayaka’s charged attack hits an enemy, then this ability’s timer starts.
No real surprise here, the set Ice breaker is ideal for Ayaka. In addition to granting a Cryo damage bonus, it increases its crit rating by up to 40% if the enemy is frozen.
In terms of weapons, the Mist-slice reflection, so we were telling you HERE is by far the best choice for her. Another great choice for her, as long as she accompanies her with a character who can give her a shield, is the Tranche-vertices, given the attack bonus that this weapon will bring you. The Jade cutter and Sword of the Azure Vault are also correct choices.
And if you don’t have 5-star weapons, prefer Blackrock Longsword in the Astéries Exchange store, or the black sword if you run out of crit rate.

It’s important to talk about current meta, which is what is working well on Genshin Impact’s more complicated content right now.
La team Reverse melt, which therefore uses the elementary cast sequence, is undoubtedly the strongest team at the moment. It consists of having:
- A Cryo character who hurts a lot (Ganyu is the best possible choice right now)
- A Pyro character, with a good ultimate aptitude, in order to have the element on the enemies (Xiangling for example)
- Character anemo as Twenty, to be able to chain ticks Pyro thanks to its ulti which absorbs the element
- And a support character like Bennett, Jean, Zhongli …
Once this setup is in place, Ganyu’s charged arrows will do colossal damage to enemies. Mainly because they hit in 2 times, and have a huge damage multiplier.
We could think qu’Ayaka would be perfect to replace Ganyu, and thus interfere in the meta of the moment, but for some time, some theorists (Those who do calculations to optimize their teams as well as possible) have noticed something …
Ayaka’s greatest strength prevents him from accessing this composition. Her ultimate ability hurts a lot, but she also hits fast. Which conflicts with one of the game’s mechanics that old MMOs and other power-boosting players already know: Internal cooldown.
The principle is simple: When you apply an item to an opponent, there is a 2.5 second cooldown before that item is reapplied. Here is an example in video. As you have seen, the ultimate ability d’Ayaka is so fast, that only one in three hits will be counted as elementary, and with the damage bonus linked to the source.
If you were going to play Ayaka in this composition, we advise you instead to go on a composition Gel with Mona / Xingqiu, much more efficient with it.

Should we invoke it?
Ayaka is a good character, who does great damage, really. Notably thanks to its ultimate ability, which hits 20 times in a short period of time. She is very fun to play thanks to her special dash (Although being able to jump out of it could have been even cooler). Contrary to Eula, Ayaka is a “real” Cryo character, in the sense that these are going to be a big part of your DPS.
Ayaka However, it is not played like the other characters, thanks to its special dash, so you will have to test it in the “Try is to adopt” mode, to be sure to stick to its gameplay. In the end, it’s a good dose of originality that doesn’t hurt.
We recommend that you summon it if you need a character Cryo which does excellent damage (especially if you don’t have Ganyu).
