Varunada Lazurite Silver and higher-tier variants of the resource can be farmed by defeating the Oceanid and Hydro Hypostasis bosses in the game. You can defeat them as many times as you want as long as you have the resin to claim the rewards at the end.

Old Handguards and higher-tier variants of the resource can be obtained by defeating samurai enemies in Inazuma. Dew of Repudiation can be farmed by defeating the Hydro Hypostasis boss. Sakura Blooms can be found in the wild in Inazuma. You will need an electro character in order to farm them.

Kamisato Ayato Build

The following is the build that we recommend for Ayato in Genshin Impact:

Best Weapons

Haran Geppaku Futsu is the best weapon that you can get for Ayato in Genshin Impact. This has crit rate as the secondary stat which is ideal for dealing high amounts of damage consistently.

It can also increase normal attacks by 20%. This is a 5-star weapon, so you will need to spend your Primogems on the weapons banner in order to get it.

Primordial Jade Cutter is another 5-star weapon that we can recommend. it also has crit rate as the secondary stat and it increases your max HP by 20%. It also buffs your attack based on the amount of health that you have.

Mistsplitter Reforged is another great weapon that you might have if you built Ayaka. Mistsplitter Reforged has crit damage as the secondary stat and you get 12% elemental damage bonus which can stack up to 3 times. 

The Black Sword is one of the 4-star weapons that we can recommend. It has crit rate as the secondary stat and it increases normal and charged attack damage by 20%. When you deal a critical hit with your normal or charged attacks, you regenerate 60% of your attacks as HP.

If you have none of the above-mentioned weapons then we can recommend Lion’s Roar. This weapon has attack% as the secondary attack and you will deal 20% additional damage to enemies that are affected by pyro or electro. This is ideal only if you are running an electro comp.

Best Artifacts

Echoes Of An Offering is the recommended set for Ayato. This will give you an 18% attack buff and normal attacks have a 36% chance of triggering Valley Rite which increased normal attack damage by 70%. If a hit fails to trigger the effect then the chances of it triggering are increased by 20%.

The Heart Of Depth is a great alternative as it increases hydro damage by 15% and using your elemental skill is going to increase your normal and charged attack damage by 30%. 

If you do not have good stats for the above-mentioned sets then you can mix things up and go with 2-pieces of the Echoes Of An Offering set and 2-pieces of the Heart Of Depth set.

No matter which artifact set you go with, we recommend having attack% on the sands, hydro damage bonus on the cup, and crit damage or crit rate on the hat.
