Kamisato Art: Kyouka
Kamisato Ayato shifts positions and enters the Takimeguri Kanka state.
After this shift, he will leave a watery illusion at his original location. After it is formed, the watery illusion will explode if opponents are nearby or after its duration ends, dealing AoE Hydro DMG.
Takimeguri Kanka
In this state, Kamisato Ayato uses his Shunsuiken to engage in blindingly fast attacks, causing DMG from his Normal Attacks to be converted into AoE Hydro DMG. This cannot be overridden.
It also has the following properties:
• After a Shunsuiken attack hits an opponent, it will grant Ayato the Namisen effect, increasing the DMG dealt by Shunsuiken based on Ayato's current Max HP. The initial maximum number of Namisen stacks is 4, and 1 stack can be gained through Shunsuiken every 0.1s. This effect will be dispelled when Takimeguri Kanka ends.
• Kamisato Ayato's resistance to interruption is increased.
• Unable to use Charged or Plunging Attacks.
Takimeguri Kanka will be cleared when Ayato leaves the field. Using Kamisato Art: Kyouka again while in the Takimeguri Kanka state will reset and replace the pre-existing state.
"When, I wonder, did you come under the illusion that you were winning?"

Kamisato Ayato's specialty. The arrangement is exquisite and elegant, much like the manner in which Ayato handles all his affairs. Any more, and it would have been excessive. Any less, and it would have proved a sight squandered. As you sample the dish, you find that its flavor is identical to that of Uyuu Restaurant's. Amazing. But as you reach your chopsticks for that crystalline camellia, Ayato stops you... "That was something I made during sword practice. It's just a decoration."

Character Details
As clan head of the Kamisato Clan, one of the great clans of the Tri-Commission, Kamisato Ayato is a household name in Inazuma.

However, people do not have quite the same clear impression of him as they do of the Shirasagi Himegimi, the elegant and kind Ayaka.

Most only know that he is an important figure in the Shogunate and the head of a famed noble house. But as for the details, there's little that they can say for sure.

Some people say that "the Yashiro Commission's festivals and events are ever meticulous and have been full of consideration for the people. Surely the Commissioner's hand is in all such matters."

But others also say "ah, but there is much to politics that should never see the light of day. And how could he have kept such a lofty position without a few tricks up his sleeve, hmm?"

Ayato himself is unfazed by such comments.

"Well, I consider myself merely a serious, dutiful public servant who owes his allegiance to the Almighty Shogun."
Character Story 1
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 2
Kamisato Ayato, as the eldest son of Inazuman nobility, was greatly loved from the moment he was born.

Though his parents were too busy to always spend time with him, they took good care of him, and in any case the "young master" never lacked for people around to look after his every need.

When he was somewhat older, he would, at his father's request, begin a complex and strict training regimen as the family successor.

But not all went as well as they might have hoped, and the pressures in the court and at home would weigh heavily on his father's health, resulting in an early passing.

The young Ayato was thus thrust into a battle for the survival of the clan's position.

In those days, none were impressed by this inexperienced youngster. Ayato went from being an elegant and refined princeling to "the poor young master of the Kamisato Clan" amongst the people, and "that greenhorn" amongst his political opponents.

Time, however, would prove these people wrong.

With extraordinary courage and some first-rate tactics, he did not leave the clan to languish. No, indeed, the Kamisato Clan's position would grow more stable than ever.

The heavy workload, malicious deceptions, and attempts to frame him at every turn he parried away, even turning them to his own advantage.

The passage of time has only increased the standing of the Yashiro Commission's Kamisato Clan in the Shogunate and with the people.

Today, Ayato is a clan head that a great house like the Kamisato Clan would be proud of, and a Yashiro Commissioner acknowledged by all.
Character Story 2
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 3
The Yashiro Commission is in charge of ritual matters on Narukami Island, and must also attend to matters of cultural leisure in such a manner that deities and the people alike are pleased — and they do, honoring their commission.

But with greater responsibilities come greater amounts of work.

Fortunately, his sister Ayaka shares much of the clan's responsibilities, with most of the interactions between the Commission and the people falling to her, allowing Ayato to spend most of his time on matters of governance.

Dealing with Shogunate officials is no easy matter. People come from different Commissions and clans, and their perspectives are very different. Any single task grows harder as the number of people involved grows.

Ayato's great strength lies in his ability to handle such matters. The way he sees it, people are driven by interest. Find leverage, and the other side will cooperate.

Find some goal that will bring the other party around to your logic, then pacify them with a few choice platitudes for the occasion, and most problems can be resolved.

And when dealing with the stubborn, one merely needs to appeal to a higher power to bear — after all, what mortal could gainsay the light of heaven itself, no matter how high their status or arrogant their attitude?

Over time, the knowledgeable and decorous Kamisato clan head gained quite the name for himself in the Shogunate.

"Hmm... this matter seems quite hard to handle. Should we ask the Yashiro Commissioner?"

So people would often say.

However, while Ayato is indeed full of ways and means, he will not simply help at any given moment.

Firstly, not every task is related to the Yashiro Commission. Secondly, it is simply not worth it for the Kamisato Clan to get itself involved for the sake of others' petty profit.

Mostly, Ayato will simply tag along as a junior figure, teacup in hand, doing little more than smiling.

"Ah, come now, Sir Nagaoka. We are all loyal servants of the Almighty Shogun. Nothing more to it. We just need to be open with each other, and I'm sure we can resolve this issue together."
Character Story 3
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 4
Being limited by his station and work, Ayato does not often appear in public, nor does he have much time for any sort of leisurely walk. However, these obstacles cannot hinder him from learning of new and interesting things.

Perhaps in the morning, he might spy one of the Yae Publishing House staff poking her head around the place, seemingly here to "report for work." In which case, he may as well pretend not to notice, all the better to hear what new methods she has for skipping work... and then "accidentally" let slip his newfound knowledge to Guuji Yae.

In a meeting with those old fogeys at Tenshukaku, there is no need to speak too quickly. After all, watching grown people argue till they are red in the face over petty issues is quite amusing.

While walking through the streets, he might suddenly consider a certain unique snack stand. Going up to the owner, he'd ask if they are selling anything new, how business is going, buy a drink or two to try... and if he finds it interesting, he'll buy a few back for the rest of the household.

Lately, he also lent some encouragement to the young oni who frequents Hanamizaka due to the latter's bug-fighting troubles — out of the goodness of his heart, of course. He also discovered that this crimson oni did not know what the name "Ayato" signified... which was fine, of course. No need to explain such things.

On the way home, he might pass Chinju Forest and see passers-by having tricks played on them by the bake-danuki, in which case he will point the illusion out. If the bake-danuki should hone their changeling skills further on his account, why, they should thank him for the inspiration.

And of course, even one so talented as Thoma might sometimes struggle to think of what to make for dinner. Such occasions are perfect for a hot pot game! After all, Ayaka always puts the most unexpected things into the pot — and how proud he is of his sister for that!

Yes, these things are indeed the spice of the Yashiro Commissioner's life.
Character Story 4
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 5
#Between the butler and the housekeeper, the Kamisato estate is always spick and span, inside and out... except for one location.

Kamisato Ayato's table is always a terrible mess after he uses it.

Books are strewn about, open and even dumped face-down on the table, while documents of uneven size are stacked haphazardly. The ink on the inkstone is never really properly kept, and one might even sometimes find chess pieces or cards under the table.

Each time the clan head gets off work, the servants always need some time to clean his study up.

In the process, they discovered that assorted notes are often clipped between these pages. Upon closer inspection, they are written in different hands, and their content also varies.

"Clan Head, the servants have sent a new batch of flowers. I have placed them in a flower vase in a corner of the table. Please take care not to knock it over again."

"Clan Head, a shrine maiden from the Grand Narukami Shrine came over today, saying that the Lady Guuji wishes to see you. It seems important, as it involves the requisitioning of land in Ritou. She invites you to the Shrine to discuss the details."

"Lord Commissioner, the Momoyo flowers have not withered. The branches grow yet. Do not worry."

"Dear Brother, I learned a new recipe while attending festivities with the Traveler. Considering that {M#he}{F#she} is from another land, do you think... that I might need to make some changes to said recipe?"

"Clan Head, the servants have been reluctant to tell you this, so allow this old lady to say it. If you wish to eat something, please leave it to our housekeeper. Also, please refrain from using the ingredients in the kitchen... How could we make you cook for yourself, after all?"

Ayato's work often sees him leaving home early and returning late. As such, the people of the Kamisato Estate will communicate with him through these means.

This was a method that Ayato came up with himself, and this is how the Kamisato household is run, via these small notes.

Unfortunately, their use has seen the clan head's already messy table become messier still... Oh well, just a small sacrifice. Nothing worth writing home about.
Character Story 5

In Inazuma, people will sometimes pray to deities by offering certain kinds of cypress leaves.

But as such rituals lack scale, they are often forgotten amidst the many, both large and small, that are conducted throughout the land.

Though some time has passed, Ayato still remembers his mother mentioning that though these cypresses are evergreen, their leaves are not needle-like.

Instead, they have large, crisp leaves that will not wither and fall even when new ones grow.

As such, it is associated with the concept of "prosperity," and was often used in ancient times as ritual plating for food offerings.

Today, people no longer use leaves as mats upon which to spread food, but the habit of offering cypress leaves persists nonetheless.

Perhaps it was just a hobby of hers, or perhaps she was just well-read in general, but whatever the case, his mother always had a great deal to say about festival affairs.

"Perhaps the Kamisato Clan of the Yashiro Commission were born to protect the deities."

In his younger years, Ayato had not fully agreed with this statement.

He believed that the Kamisato Clan was the Kamisato Clan, and that it belonged to the family's members. That was the reason for its existence, and any service to the gods was a job, a matter of circumstance.

But such presumptuous words could never be said out loud, and in any case, Ayato could not bear to interrupt his mother when she looked so excited.

No matter how long she would go on, Ayato would always sit in front of her and listen in silence, even if his legs might fall asleep in the process.

With the passing of years, Ayato's days would be taken up by swordsmanship and books. The one giving the "lessons" was now his father, and the lesson content would turn from ritual affairs to matters that the clan's successor should be concerned with.

His duty to the clan would be something that would occupy yet more space in Ayato's life. Nor was the Raiden Shogun just a mere symbol as she was in his childhood. Now, she was the Ogosho, the mighty defender of Inazuma's eternal peace.

"The Kamisato Clan stands today because of Narukami's mercy. As such, the Clan must defend the road to Eternity, and follow the Shogun eternally."

"This was our agreement, and it is the unchanging rule of our clan. Remember this well."

As for the specifics of what happened, Ayato had already gleaned some of them from reading their ancestral teachings. It was the Kamisato elders' failings that had resulted in the nationally-important Raiden Gokaden to suffer great loss. If not for Guuji Yae's intervention on their behalf, causing the Shogun to show them mercy, the Kamisato Clan may have joined others in falling from grace and ceasing to exist.

This was the grace of Her Excellency, and at the same time, it was a warning from Her servant.

As such, Ayato never snubbed his father's teachings. Though he still believed in protecting his clan above all else, he also understood that Inazuma was sustained by the Electro Archon's protection. Only peace in Inazuma could guarantee the longevity and prosperity of the clan.

No matter how things might change in Inazuma, the Kamisato Clan alone would never betray the Almighty Narukami.

Even if his heart said differently, he could only bury it deep beneath well-maintained appearances.

Just as his mother said back then—

"The divinely-protected cypress will sprout new leaves from ancient branches.

So, too, can the camellia in the courtyard remain fragrant even in the most bitter winter."
Yumemiru Pen Case
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 4
Even Kamisato Ayato himself could not have expected that calligraphy practice, which he had found most boring in his youth, would eventually become a favored pastime of his.

He had slogged through much penmanship practice to better play the part of the Kamisato Clan's eldest son.

But nowadays, he transcribes a few poems from time to time to clear his mind and think in silence.

Of course, this also lets him seem like he is busy with official business even while idle, all the better to avoid seeing some people and doing certain things.

With time's passing, it became agreed among the servants waiting on him that he not only liked to play chess but was also fond of calligraphy.

Such talk would spread widely via word of mouth. As such, Ayato often receives excellent brushes as gifts during festivals or birthdays.

Some of the more speculative have even bought him exquisite and expensive quill pens from overseas.

Ayato has never attempted to clarify this matter, but instead had a lovely wooden case made in which he stores such stationery.

He has always been interested in all things new, and trying out these new pens is indeed fun.

Moreover, these gifts often say much about the person who sent them. Such information thus becomes one of the means by which Ayato can get a handle on them.

That said, though he claims to have bought this case to store stationery, there are three pens that Ayato has never placed inside it.

One of them, slim and well-crafted, is placed on his desk. It shows signs of some wear and tear, but it writes well, and is used for writing petitions.

The second is stored in a drawer at the bottom, its fine tip having seen much loving use in the past when Ayato was practicing calligraphy. Its beginner-friendly nature also saw it borrowed quite often by Thoma and Ayaka back in the day.

As for the third, it is stored deep within a wooden cabinet used to store antiques, sealed within a silk bag. Excellent of make and design, it was presented to him by his mother during his adulthood ceremony.
Vision
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 6
One night, many years ago, Ayato's gravely-ill father summoned him into his presence.

That night, his father seemed a little different from the illness-weathered figure he had become. His expression was solemn, and yet the concern in his eyes was all too clear.

Forcing himself to stay alert, he asked Ayato: was his training done? Had he eaten enough for dinner? How was his swordsmanship progressing?

As Ayato replied, his father nodded with a smile, seemingly satisfied. Yet, his expression would quickly darken, as if there was something he wanted to, but could not say.

After much hesitation, and under his wife's melancholic gaze, his father would finally speak, his voice heavy:

"Ayato... Remember, no matter what happens to the Kamisato Clan in the future, you are our eldest son, Ayaka's elder brother... A successor the Kamisato Clan is proud to have."

After reminding his father to rest well, Ayato would take leave of his parents and return to his bedroom.

The moment he opened the door, he saw the shining Vision lying on his desk.

Ayato had heard since he was young that Visions are signs of the gods' favor, born of human wishes.

Since his youth, he had longed to become the family's pillar, not for any great work, but to ensure that the clan would prosper, and to protect them.

That this Vision should appear now... meant that, perhaps, the time had come for him to take up this burden.

So thinking, Ayato did not call for the servants to light the lamps. Instead, he merely sat down beside the table.

Many things flowed through his mind then like a tide:

His father was gravely ill, and his mother was also unwell. The clan was leaderless, and its competitors eyed its position and power hungrily, as they had for some time now.

His sister was still young, and he had to ensure that she grew up safely. The Shogunate courts were like a sea full of hidden reefs. One had to tread most carefully there...

They could not let go of the Shuumatsuban, command over which had passed down through the family for generations. As for the servants, some few might still be trusted should the Kamisato Clan's strength wane...

And as for Thoma, who had come from a different land, though he was a friend and useful ally both, would he consider other options should the Kamisato Clan truly fall?

These scattered thoughts would gradually straighten themselves out in Ayato's mind, and at their center was his still-unchanged conviction—

He would use any means at his disposal to secure the safety of his family and its future. Obstacles to that goal would be cleared away, no matter the cost.

That night, the Vision was the only light that accompanied him.

And when the first light of the next dawn alighted upon the desk, the young heir was already prepared to face the world.

    Are 7/9k (unbuff) and 19/22k (bennett + yunjin c6 + Zhongli shield) good numbers for someone without 5* weapons and c0?

    My build is: 4 glad, 58/218 with Black Sword r1.

      Not bad. What are your talents and how much attack do you have?

      I would recommend some more Crit Rate for consistency.

        I have 1628 att with 1/8/8 talents. I’m for sure crowning his E but for like a month I haven’t seen Ayato boss materials and dream solvents (I’m also stuck with Venti talents).
        Do you think it’s worth losing 34 crit damage for 14 crit rate (-70 att)? I only have 2 good hydro goblets but both only have one crit stat.

          I would say removing 34 Crit Damage in exchange for 14 Crit rate is acceptable in your case. A ratio of 72/184 will yield better overall damage output than 58/218. Having a lot of Crit Damage isn’t helpful if your attacks themselves don’t crit enough.

          Depending on how much more time you want to spend farming Ayato’s artifacts, you can fine-tune individual pieces (like your goblet) in the future – while also increasing Attack a bit. I think 1.7k-1.8k Attack is comfortable with the Black Sword. At least 2k is most optimal, but we must take into account the Black Sword’s lower base Attack compared to 5* swords or 4* ATK-stat swords.

          The RNG of farming talent materials and solvents from bosses can definitely be a drag sometimes. If you can manage, I would also suggest raising Ayato’s Burst to level 9 in the future.

    Glad I skipped this shit. What a waste of primos and guaranteed pity that would have been. Half my friends list got Ayato but I bet they’re doing less than 10k per e skill slash which is literally nothing. A single Xingqiu rain sword can do more damage than a single Ayato slash. They did not have to make Ayato worse than his little sister who was released in 2021 LMFAO

      If your friends are doing less than 10k per slash, they either haven’t finished building him (or don’t know how to build him). They also don’t know his rotation or how to build a team with him.

      Judging a character based on a single element of its kit is narrow-minded. It’s similar to how some people don’t realize how hard Itto’s Elemental skill can hit alongside his Burst (which can also do great damage).

      But why complain? You didn’t pull Ayato, so his kit shouldn’t matter to you.

            You’re being stalked… here? I guess you haven’t realized because of how mentally slow you are but you’re one of the only people on Ayato’s page still being constantly negative; you shouldn’t be surprised that everyone is calling you out. Or maybe you’re just a generic online attention seeker and that’s what you want? There are healthier ways to pass time you know. The fact that you still persist is why my guy is telling you to get mental help. I’m not insulting you, this is actually concerning.

            • KEKW on 25 April 2022 at 7:24 am

            At the very least, there’s a clever Ayato simp here who understands how I roll. That is a really unusual example, I tell you.

            • The Unusual Example on 25 April 2022 at 4:07 pm

            Nah, I’m not a simp. If Ayato’s kit was bland like Thoma’s or clunky like some other characters’, I wouldn’t have pulled him regardless of his design or personality. He’s not without caveats though, which are usually what people insult.

            Some players who identify as simps behave the same as any troll. The only real difference is that they like the character rather than dislike (or are indifferent towards) it. Typing silly insults to protect a videogame character is laughable, hypocritical, and counterproductive. Then again, “simp” comes from the word simpleton, meaning a foolish person… Or a mentally slow one. So I suppose nothing less is to be expected of their actions in that regard.

            • Stalker has been noticed KEKW on 26 April 2022 at 9:51 am

            Why yes, I’m still being negative on Ayato’s page and the folks here are triggered because of it. The more you react, the more likely I am inclined to troll further. Stop adding fuel to the fire and see how quickly it burns out, like the other person suggested. You know, there’s no such thing as wasted time when you’re having a good time. At the end of the day, I’m the one who’s having a good time, while you simps are the ones getting irritated.

        Sounds about right. When I did some testing, my Ayato was doing around 10k per slash with blackcliff and no buffs. With buffs it would be around 20-25k and when I used haran it would be over 30k. This was all when he was still C0, now he’s C2 and is doing around 600-700k per rotation, making his hypercarry about as strong as my C2 Raiden hypercarry. If and when I get Kazuha, they’ll both be even more insane. It’s crazy how hard some people are hating… like even if he was “weak” he’d still be more than strong enough to delete the abyss so I really don’t get the point of all this elitism and toxicity

          Obviously. But you’d still have to wait for it to actually rain. The open world provides some ways to fill in possible gaps in teams (ike melting enemies that get close to Mist Flowers when you have no Cryo, etc.). It’s reliant on the situation.

          Using a character to trigger Hydro reactions is far more reliable and flexible. 🙂

    Ayato mid? KeqingMains, one of the biggest theorycrafting networks in genshin literally put him on the same level as Kokomi and Childe on their latest tier list and emphasized those 3 are interchangeable depending on the player or account.

    Kokomi – if you have skill issues and need healing, works in freeze and taser but not vape
    Childe – if you want someone who can nuke and speedrun, best in vape but not good in other teams
    Ayato – if you want someone flexible who works in all 3 teams: vape, taser, and freeze

    You can watch KeqingMains Twitch vod from 10 days ago at 00:47:30-00:49:55 if you wanna see for yourself.
    Zajef77, one of the most reliable theorycrafters and Zy0x’s math guy, even ranked them like this: Ayato > Childe > Kokomi

      Kokomi and Childe are mid. If character works in top-tier comp, it doesnt make character top tier on his own.
      Shenhe and Sara are best examples of that.
      Like Ayaka with Shenhe and Raiden carry with Sara are arguably fastest comps in the game, but nobody in sane mind will call Shenhe or Sara top tier.

        “If character works in top-tier comp, it doesnt make character top tier on his own.” I only agree if said character is replaceable in that team.
        Shenhe and Sara are not top tier because their teams will still do good even if you replace them – Rosaria instead of Shenhe and TTDS Lisa instead of Sara for example. Try to remove hydro characters from vape or freeze teams and you’ll be griefing yourself.

        Why do you think Xingqiu is considered by TCs and a lot of players to be the 2nd best character in the game and is the only character in SS tier together with Bennett? Because he is hydro and he applies hydro fast while off-field. But there’s only 1 Xingqiu and players need at least 1 more hydro for their other teams.

        I may diss Kokomi a lot but she is the best hydro for freeze. TTDS and off-field hydro application with no ICD on E that keeps enemies perma-frozen.
        Childe has better AOE than Xingqiu and has a nuke.
        An account that has at least 2 strong hydro will have a lot more options in making teams. Doesn’t sound mid to me

        Genshin is a team game, no character is truly top tier on their own. Every DPS uses supports to provide various utilities. And supports increase a DPS unit’s damage potential.

        By your logic, Bennett is not top tier because he works in a national team. And Hu Tao is not top tier because she uses Xingqiu to vape.

        If Shenhe and Sara can contribute to teams that gain the fastest clears, how is that not top tier?

        You’re completely contradicting yourself.

          Top tier it is 5 broken OP supports known to everybody + Ayaka.
          Sub-top tier it is Ganyu, Hu Tao, Venti, XL.
          Mid-tier everybody who falls into “meta” category but whose overall pack is not as good as 10 characters above.

            Neither of you are entirely correct.

            Tier lists will always be somewhat subjective. Each person’s playstyle and the units they have available to them will inevitably affect the way they value any given character. The fact that Disclaimer pointed out how Zhongli makes their life easier is a perfect example of subjectivity. Others could argue that Zhongli’s pillars can be inconvenient if they interfere with elemental reactions.

            Tier lists are better treated as guidelines rather than absolute standards.
