|The Heron's Court|
Ayaka's Character Banner was released on the first half of Version 2.0, while Yoimiya and Sayu's Character Banner will be available in the second half.
Since both Event Banners have been confirmed to be for Ayaka, Yoimiya, and Sayu, we won't be getting any Banner Reruns. We could get Banner Reruns for the oldest characters, Albedo and Ganyu, in later patches though!
