Genshin Impact Ayato Leaks

Elemental skill: Kamisato Art: Kyuoka

Ayato dashes backward, leaving a water illusion that taunts the enemy. He also enters the Soukai Kanka state. While in this state, his Normal Attack is converted to Hydro damage with increased range and he cannot perform Charged Attack or Plunge Attack.

Each time he hits an enemy, he gains a Wave Flash stack (max 4 stacks) that increases his damage based on his max HP.

The skill has an internal cooldown of 2-2.5 seconds, which means you can apply Hydro to an enemy every 2-2.5 seconds with this skill.

Elemental burst: Kamisato Art: Suiyuu

Ayato creates a Hydro field that constantly rains down Hydro swords that damage enemies inside. Characters (excluding Ayato) inside the field will have their ATK SPD increased. The duration of the Burst is 15 seconds.

Passive talents

  • Kamisato Art: Daily cooking: He has an 18% chance of getting an additional "Suspicious" dish of the same type.
  • Kamisato Art: Kiyotaki Jouhou: Gain 2 Wave Flash stacks immediately after using Elemental Skill. When the water illusion explodes, he gains the maximum number of Wave Flash stacks.
  • Kamisato Art: Kaysusui Senkoku: His Elemental Burst damage is increased by 3% of his max HP.


  1. Increase his Elemental Skill damage by 30% against enemies with 50% HP or less.
  2. Wave Flash max stacks count is increased to 5. When he has more than 3 Wave Flash stacks, his current max HP increases by 40%.
  3. Increase the level of Elemental Burst by 3. Max level is now 15.
  4. After using Elemental Burst, all party members (excluding himself) gain 20% Normal Attack DMG for 10 seconds.
  5. Increase the level of Elemental Skill by 3. Max level is now 15.
  6. After using his Elemental Skill, his next attacks will create 2 extra attacks that deal 300% ATK each.

Ascension materials

Here is the information about Ayato's ascension materials and talent materials. Basically, you need to farm the Hydro Hypostasis boss, the new Raiden Shogun boss, and collect a lot of Sakura Bloom to upgrade him.

Ayato's kit looks quite the same as Ganyu but he doesn't have her insane Charged Shot damage. His skill also doesn't scale really well with a long cooldown so he probably fits the most for a sub-DPS or support role to trigger Vaporize or Frozen.

Note that this information is only a leak and it is subject to changes when the actual character is released as the team will try to balance him more.
