She scales of crit damage with each ascension, which will definitely make her easy to build.

Any source of additional damage stat is useful and players can grant her a crit rate headpiece with crit damage sub stat. Prioritizes crit rate and attack damage as sub stats for flower and feather. Being a cryo sword user, Ayaka needs a Cryo cup with sub-stats that can boost crit rate and attack percentage.

She requires a ton of energy particles to unleash her devastating ultimate, which costs 80 energy particles. It makes her an energy-hungry unit, as she would need a cryo battery character like Qiqi, Rosaria, Chongyun, and more.

Weapons and team composition

There are only a limited few choices for DPS sword users in Genshin Impact. If you happen to get your hands on mist splitter, then grant her the weapon immediately, otherwise, you can go for Jade cutter or Skyward blade. If you don’t have any of these 5-star weapons then you look for a 4-star Black cliff sword.

In the case of team composition, Melt and frozen are the best elements that Cryo characters can use. Characters like Xinqiu, Qiqi, Xiangling, Zhongli can be a great match for Ayaka.
