Ayaka's Elemental Skill, Kamisato Art: Hyouka, deals AoE Cryo DMG by summoning blooming ice to launch nearby opponents. The ability not only comes in handy while triggering elemental reactions like Melt, Frozen, and Superconduct, but it also helps players stay afloat in water bodies to preserve stamina while crossing rivers, ponds, and other things.
Meanwhile, Ayaka's Elemental Burst, Kamisato Art: Soumetsu, summons forth a snowstorm with flawless poise, unleashing a Frostflake Seki no To that moves forward continuously. The ability deals Cryo DMG to enemies that come in contact with the "Frostflake Seki no To" and AoE Cryo DMG when its duration ends.

Should You Go For Kamisato Ayaka's Constellations?

At stack levels 1/2/3, Mistsplitter's Emblem provides an 8/16/28% Elemental DMG bonus for the character's Elemental Type. That is up to a 28% Elemental DMG bonus for your party. There are more buffs that players can obtain by using the Mistsplitter Reforged sword. But, since it is a five-star weapon, not every player can afford it.
There are some cheap and free-to-play options like the Black Sword, whose secondary stat increases the CRIT Rate DMG, and the weapon skill increases DMG dealt by Normal and Charged Attacks by 20% while healing the wielder based on 60% of the user's ATK.
