Ayato is one of those Genshin Impact characters whose Ascension and Talent materials aren’t too taxing to get. However, depending on your past pulls, they may seem familiar. That’s because both he and his sister, Ayaka, need some of the same items. In short, it means getting handguard drops from enemies, Elegance talent books from Inazuma’s Violet Court, and lots of Sakura Bloom petals from around Narukami Island.
Which Ayato Ascension Materials Do You Need to Find in Genshin Impact?
A lot of Ayato’s Ascension materials aren’t difficult to get! You need 420,000 to go through all of them. That isn’t terribly difficult to earn. You’ll also need 46 Dew of Repudiation items dropped by the Hydro Hypostasis on Inazuma’s Watatsumi Island. That same boss will also be a way to get the 1 Varunada Lazurite Sliver, 9 Varunada Lazurite Fragments, 9 Varunada Lazurite Chunks, and 6 Varunada Lazurite Gemstones needed for his ascensions.
The various Handguards you need are also not too difficult to find, given the Nobushi and Kairagi found on all Inazuma’s islands drop them. (You can also “buy” them from the in-game Paimon’s Bargains shop.) You need 18 Old Handguards, 30 Kageuchi Handguards, and 36 Famed Handguards.
It’s the Sakura Blooms that can be a bit annoying. It’s not because they’re especially difficult to find or not plentiful. The pink “clouds” of petals are easy to spot both during the day and night on Narukami Island. In particular, they are around Chinju Forest, Grand Narukami Shrine and Inazuma City. Rather, you need an Electro character to use an Electro attack to centralize them so you can pick them up. (Keqing and Razor are great at this, but also so is Raiden Shogun or Sara.) You need 168 of them for Ayato total.
Which Ayato Talent Materials Do You Need to Find in Genshin Impact?
His Talent materials are very straightforward too! Each Talent will need 6 Old Handguards, 22 Kageuchi Handguards, 31 Famed Handguards, 3 Teachings of Elegance, 21 Guides to Elegance, 38 Philosophies of Elegance, 6 Mudras of the Malefic General, and a Crown of Insight, as well as 1,652,500 Mora.
Again, the Handguards are easy items to get. The Nobushi and Kairagi samurai around Inazuma drop them regularly. The three types of Talent Books also are fairly simple to get, provided you play on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays to collect them from Kannazuka Island’s Violet Court domain.
The only “troublesome” item would be the 6 Mudra of the Malefic General that drop from the Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto weekly boss on Narukami Island. You need to beat Act 2 of Raiden Shogun’s story quest to unlock it, first of all. Second, that material only drops from the level 70 boss fight. It’s a random drop, as you could also get The Meaning of Aeons or Tears of the Calamitous God instead.
Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the Ayato rerun banner will appear until January 17, 2023.
