Genshin Impact Kamisato Ayato banner rerun date, abilities, and more

The Genshin Impact Kamisato Ayato banner rerun date could be coming very soon indeed. Here's everything we know about when the Yashiro Commissioner will return

Genshin Impact Kamisato Ayato banner: Ayato

If you’ve come across this Genshin Impact guide then that can mean only one thing: the Kamisato Ayato banner is now just around the corner. As such, you’re going to want to swot up on all things Ayato, including his abilities and Constellations.

Head of the Kamisato clan, Yashiro Commissioner, and older brother of Ayaka – herself one of the top DPS characters in our Genshin Impact tier list – Ayato is a Hydro sword user like Xingqiu. This boba-loving statesman is a powerful addition to the roster of Genshin Impact characters, so be sure to ready your Primogems.

Kamisato Ayato banner rerun date

The Kamisato Ayato banner rerun will arrive on December 27, 2022. HoYoverse confirmed via Twitter that he would return for Phase 2 of Genshin Impact 3.3 alongside Raiden Shogun.

Genshin Impact Kamisato Ayato abilities

Ayato mixes fine swordsmanship with his Hydro Vision in order to deliver devastating attacks. His Elemental Burst – Kamisato Art: Suiyuu – is perfect for applying Hydro to multiple enemies while he is off-field, making him a versatile DPS.

Normal Attack – Kamisato Art – Marobashi

  • Normal attack: Perform up to five rapid strikes
  • Charged attack: Consumes a certain amount of stamina to dash forward and perform an iai
  • Plunging attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging any enemies in your path and dealing area of effect damage upon impact

Elemental Skill – 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 four, and one 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.

Elemental Burst – Kamisato Art: Suiyuu

Unveils a garden of purity that silences the cacophony within.
While this space exists, Bloomwater Blades will constantly rain down and attack opponents within its AoE, dealing Hydro DMG and increasing the Normal Attack DMG of characters within.

Kamisato Art: Mine Wo Matoishi Kiyotaki

Kamisato Art: Kyouka has the following properties:

  • After it is used, Kamisato Ayato will gain two Namisen stacks.
  • When the water illusion explodes, Ayato will gain a Namisen effect equal to the maximum number of stacks possible.

Kamisato Art: Michiyuku Hagetsu

If Kamisato Ayato is not on the field and his Energy is less than 40, he will regenerate two Energy for himself every second.

Kamisato Art: Daily Cooking

When Ayato cooks a dish perfectly, he has an 18% chance to receive an additional ‘suspicious’ dish of the same type.

  • (C5) Bansui Ichiro – Increases the level of Kamisato Art: Suiyuu by three. Maximum upgrade level increases to 15
  • (C6) Boundless Origin – After using Kamisato Art: Kyouka, Ayato’s next Shunsuiken attack creates two extra Shunsuiken strikes when they hit enemies, each one dealing 450% of Ayato’s attack as damage. Neither Shunsuiken attacks are affected by Namisen
