Genshin Impact leaks have revealed more information about Ayaka, a character the community has been looking forward to for a very long time. This character has finally almost arrived, and testers are revealing information about her strengths and weaknesses. It seems like she may be strong enough to deal with some of the top tier DPS characters in Genshin Impact. With powerful skills and a unique swordfighting style, players will definitely not want to overlook Ayaka's potential as a strong 5-star character. Players can read here to find out more about Ayaka's current strength level.

Genshin Impact: Ayaka's strength compared to Ganyu and Hu Tao

Certain leakers on Twitter have been sharing information about Ayaka's potential strength and playstyle, and it appears that she will be quite the powerful character when she releases. Ayaka is a 5-star Cryo Sword character who is part of the important Kamisato house of Inazuma. She will be featured heavily in the upcoming Inazuma storyline, and players can look forward to meeting her once they set off in the new region.

According to these leaks, Ayaka will slightly lag behind Hu Tao and Ganyu in damage, but her Elemental Burst will have insane damage numbers. According to the current numbers, at level 10 Ayaka's Burst, Kamisato Art: Soumetsu will hit for 4800% if all of the slashes land on an enemy. Given that the surging storm of Cryo blades will carry smaller enemies with it and will stop upon contact with larger enemies, it is likely that many of these slashes will indeed deal damage. Players should take advantage of this incredibly powerful ability.

Other Ayaka details:

Ayaka has also received several buffs on the Genshin Impact test servers, including changes to her charged attack and unique dash. Her charged attack can apparently hit within Venti's Elemental Burst now, but the effect looks strange, and players will have to look forward to seeing that when more information comes out.

She has also received a slight buff to the AOE of her Elemental Skill, and her dash will provide extra stamina regeneration when it hits an enemy. However, Ayaka's second ascension passive has been changed, removing her old execution mechanic.
