Ayaka VS Ganyu- Who is the best Cryo main damage dealer in Genshin Impact

Ayaka and Ganyu both are great main damage dealers in the game. Ganyu was released back in the 1.3 update; whereas Ayaka’s banner first came out in the 2.0 update. Ganyu deals tremendous damage through her charged attack and can fulfill the role of both main damage dealer and support character.

Unlike Ganyu, Ayaka can influence her normal attack with Cryo. Furthermore, her elemental burst can out damage Ganyu’s charged shot; however, she has a high energy cost on her burst. Thus, it becomes very hard to get energy particles and keep her burst up all the time. Interestingly, in terms of damage, Ayaka overshadows Ganyu easily.

However, Ganyu is a very versatile character and arguably is the only character to fulfill both roles perfectly. Therefore, she can be an immense help in Spiral Abyss as well as open-world challenges. Moreover, Ganyu will have her re-run banner in phase 2 of the 2.4 update. Hence, if you don’t have a great Cryo unit or just got Shenhe, then you should definitely consider pulling on her banner.

Ayaka might not receive her first re-run banner soon; thus, pulling for Ganyu is definitely a splendid option. Regardless, Ayaka can out damage Ganyu, but has her own limits. Who do you think is better Ayaka or Ganyu? Let us know in the comments down below.
