Genshin Impact Ayato Abilities

Here are all of Ayato’s abilities in Genshin Impact:

Normal Attack: Kamisato Art – Korobi

  • Normal attack: Perform up to five rapid strikes
  • Charged attack: Consume some stamina to dash ahead and perform an iai (counter attack)
  • Plunging attack: Attack while in mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging any enemies in your path and dealing area of effect damage upon impact

Elemental Skill: Kamisato Art – Kyouka

Ayato summons a water clone of himself and immediately enters Soukai Kanka state. Ayato’s watery illusion taunts enemies and is set to explode if enough time has elapsed or if it receives damage. The explosion deals area of effect Hydro damage to nearby enemies. While Ayato is in the Soukai Kanka state, damage from his normal attacks switches from physical damage to area of effect Hydro damage.

Ayato uses his Shunsuiken, a special blade made of water, allowing him to attack enemies using lightning fast strikes. Whenever Ayato lands a blow to an enemy using his Shunsuiken, he gains a Wash Flash stack, increasing his damage based on his maximum health points. Wave Flash stacks up to four times, and you can gain a stack by attacking enemies every 0.1 seconds.

Holding Wave Flash stacks also increases Ayato’s resistance to interruption. Ayato is unable to perform charged or plunging attacks while in the Soukai Kanka state. You can decrease the cooldown of Kyouka by attacking enemies with your party members specifically using normal attacks.

Elemental Burst: Kamisato Art – Suiyuu

Upon activation, a large blue circle appears on the ground, damaging enemies standing inside the area with Bloomwater Blades. These blades deal Hydro damage, and they continuously rain down while the circle is active. Ayato’s party members also benefit from this elemental burst by increasing their attack speed while standing in this area, but the effect doesn’t apply to Ayato himself.
