Gameplay tips and character summary
We’ve already talked about Ayato’s weapons, artifacts, and talent priorities in Genshin Impact. So, should you try to get him?
As of now, it’s too early to tell as I’ve only gotten him to level 70. He seems to be a straightforward main DPS due to the six-second elemental skill duration. But, at the same time, he’s also heavily reliant on normal attacks (infused with Hydro and converted into Shunsiken). He does work with reaction comps, assuming he pops his burst before smacking everyone with his infused skill, all while another character creates the reaction. Good examples are Taser with Fischl/Beidou, or a combination of his burst and Ganyu’s, both benefiting greatly from the massive AoE coverage.
The main downside is that his damage, at the moment, pales in comparison to full-blast nukers like his sister Ayaka. I’ve also noticed that Childe, a fellow Hydro DPS, performs significantly better in encounters with a lot of mobs. Still, I’ll do some more tests in the meantime.
