As of now, HoYoverse has not revealed the exact release date of Kamisato Ayato in Genshin Impact, but he is expected to arrive on 30th March along with the update.

Kamisato Ayato weapons and skills

Kamisato Ayato is a 5-star character, and his in-game description reads, "The young but highly accomplished head of the Yashiro Commission's Kamisato Clan. Cultured and
polite, he is a man of many ways and means."

He is a hydro character and uses a sword as his weapon. Here are the attacks he performs, along with her passive skills and more.

Normal Attacks

  • Normal Attack - Perform up to 5 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 opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact. 

Ayato's Elemental Skill

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.
