I. Kamisato Ayato Ascension Materials

Many of Ayato's materials needed for ascension can be found in Inazuma. But some of them are available to collect all over Teyvat. Genshin Impact players also have to defeat dangerous bosses to collect these materials. Check out how to farm ascension materials for him here.

#1. Varunada Lazurite

Varunada Lazurite is the necessary gemstone to ascend any Hydro characters in Genshin Impact. There are four ways to farm this ascension material for Ayato.

  • Purchasing from Mingxing Jewelry in Liyue Harbor. Each Varunada Lazurite Sliver cost you 10 Geo Sigils. Go to talk to Xingxi shopkeeper to buy 12 items.
  • Defeat normal bosses, such as Oceanid, Primo Geovishap, and Hydro Hypostasis.
  • Complete weekly domains of Confront Stormterror, Beneath the Dragon-Queller, and Enter the Golden House.
  • High-level gemstones can be crafted from lower-level gemstones.

Besides, Travelers will also get random types of gemstones when claiming Daily Commission Rewards from Katheryne.

#2. Sakura Blooms

Like Kamisato Ayaka, Ayato also needs a lot of Sakura Blooms to ascend. This is the exclusive material in Inazuma. You can find them solely in the wild on Narukami Island. Once you see a Sakura Bloom, hit it with an Electro attack.

#3. Handguards

The Handguard is also an exclusive material in Inazuma. Genshin Impact players need to defeat Kairagi and Nobushi bosses all around Inazuma. The high-level handguard items can be crafted from lower-level units at any crafting bench.

These enemies often spawn in groups in the wild, along the beaches, and some camps in Inazuma. Sometimes, Kairagi and Nobushi spawn near Fatui and other enemies. You should have a strong team to defeat them quickly. High-level Kairagi and Nobushi drop rarer Handguards.

#4. Dew of Repudiation

Kamisato Ayato also needs a super rare material from Hydro Hypostasis drops. The drop rate of this 4-star material depends on the level of the boss. If you defeat high-level Hypostasis, you will get more Dew of Repudiation.

This Hydro boss is very dangerous and difficult to defeat. You can find it inside a cave in Suigetsu Pool on Watatsumi Island. Build a strong team with Raiden Shogun, Zhongli, Yanfei, and Bennett to counter this boss. You can also recruit Xiangling, Fischl, and Diona to accompany Raiden Shogun if you don't have Zhongli or Yanfei.

II. Ayato Materials Genshin For Talent Level-Up

Genshin Impact players also have to level up characters' active talents to buff DMG for the normal attacks, elemental skills, and bursts. Each character needs a different set of talent level-up materials. Here are all talent level-up materials for Kamisato Ayato you should collect from now.

  • Handguards: obtained by defeating Kairagi and Nobushi bosses in Inazuma.
  • Elegance talent scrolls: go to the Violet Court domain in Inazuma on Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday to take challenges and complete them within the time limit. You can also use the gadget called 'Parametric Transformer' to obtain these materials. Go to any crafting bench in Teyvat or your Serenitea Pot to craft high-level scrolls from base-level scrolls.

Don't look down on these talent level-up materials. You need to upgrade all the active skills of Ayato to buff his ATK, elemental, and CRTI DMG. All passive talents will be unlocked after the full ascension.
