Kamisato Ayaka Best Weapon

Updated On:

- No Comments

Kamisato Ayaka is a 5-star Cryo-carry that’s held in high regard for her high DPS potential straightforward mechanics and as a quintessential freeze team member. She undeniably stores a lot of damage in her burst and performs amazingly as a burst DPS.

While some players prefer playing her for her normal and charged attack sequences, every part of her kit outputs Cryo damage.

Best Weapon For Kamisato Ayaka

Weapons for Ayaka are generally pretty easy and all of the 5-Stars are going to be good but there’s also a free-to-play option that’s actually insanely good on her.

Mistsplitter Reforged

Her best weapon is still without a question is her signature Mistsplitter Reforged as she is able to make full use of all its effects. It’s Crit Damage sub stats complement the 4-Piece Blizzard Strayer build.

When equipping it just don’t forget to add a Cryo normal attack before using the burst to get the first stack and snapshot it.

Haran Geppaku Futsu

The most recent contender is the Haran Geppaku Futsu sword which is her brother’s signature weapon. While it looks good on Ayaka, its Crit Rate substats faces a similar concern with Primodial Jade Cutter. Also, the damage bonus buffs her normal attacks only.

Primodial Jade Cutter

The Primodial Jade Cutter‘s passive adds a nice boost to Ayaka’s attack. The disadvantage though is if you’re on a 4-Piece Blizzard Strayer build with Cryo Resonance, she’ll overcap on her Crit Rate. Despite that it’s still a very viable pick and also plays well with non-4-Piece Blizzard Strayer build.

Overall, both Haran Geppaku Futsu and Primodial Jade Cutter are pretty solid weapons but it is worth noting that they do fall behind Mistsplitter Reforged by about 10 to 20 percent.

Summit Shaper

The Summit Shaper‘s attack buffs give Ayaka a bit more benefit than other units equipped with this considering that typical Ayaka teams don’t have a Bennett attack buff.

Something worth noting about Summit Shaper is that you’re actually going to miss out on some of the stacks for her burst if you’re on a time crunch. Since her burst snapshot stack when you use it you lose some of the weapon’s potential if you don’t get all of the stacks first which can take some time.

That’s not to say that it’s a bad weapon on her but it just means that its full potential is a lot harder to get to.

Skyward Blade

Skyward Blade is also a super strong weapon on Ayaka and generally underrated because of its Energy Recharge main stat. The thing is that Skyward Blade will basically eliminate all of your needs for Energy Recharge and though it’s not the highest damage potential, it makes playing Ayaka really easy.

In a case where you’re over capping on crit rate with something like Primodial Jade Cutter, Skyward Blade can actually give you more value. Because then when you get Energy Recharge on your main stat that means you don’t have to have energy recharging your substats.

This means that those can go into crit and basically even though the damage potential of skyward blade is lower than something like jade cutter sometimes it can still be a better choice just because it gets you more burst up time.

Amenoma Kageuchi

The best free-to-play option would be the craftable Amenoma Kageuchi giving her good attack stats and addressing some Elemental Regeneration needs. In usual team rotations you can get in two uses of her skill which stacks two Seeds from the weapon’s effect. Having that energy refund mechanic lets you get away with potentially lower Elemental Regeneration stats and focus more on Crit.

If you want to stick with this weapon, it’s very well worth refining. This weapon is already so good on her that you can feel confident letting it carry your Ayaka and even the hardest content.

Harbinger of Dawn

The Harbinger of Dawn is an easy starter recommendation as Ayaka on a freeze team should keep the passive up well by not taking damage in the first place.

Wrapping It Up!

If i didn’t mention a weapon here it’s because the weapon is just not as good as any of the other options and Amenoma Kageuchi is a free to play craftable so that should be the weapon that you’re shooting for. I definitely wouldn’t try to force a weapon that is not one of these ones that i listed.

It’s really not the end of the world if you have to put in a filler weapon before you get Amenoma Kageuchi but that should be your end goal specifically if you don’t have any of the 5-stars.
