Ayaka is a new 5 star character in Genshin Impact 2.0.
She is a sword user with Cryo as her element, and with the correct build, she has the ability to do massive damage. Leveling her and developing her abilities depends largely interacting with Inazuma's new enemies and acquiring new field items, so you'll need to have the appropriate build for the Homeward Heron.
Ayaka's banner will remain about three weeks before being replaced by a new one featuring Yoimiya in mid-August.
The additional characters joining the Ayaka banner have yet to be formally revealed by miHoYo. However, leakers discovered information revealing the following three four-star personalities accompanying Ayaka:
Yanfei\ Ningguang\ Chongyun
These speculations should be regarded with caution until miHoYo releases official banner details.
Ayaka is a five-star character, thus even during the character banner, your chances of acquiring her are slim. The five-star character pity system ensures that you will receive a five-star character on your 90th Wish after 89 Wishes without receiving one. It's not a given that it'll be Ayaka.

Snowswept Sakura: When normal or charged attacks deal Cryo damage, there’s a 50% chance of reducing Hyouka’s cooldown by 0.3 seconds.
Blizzard Blade Seki no To: Soumetsu generates two additional frostflakes that each deal 20% of the original’s total damage.

Genshin Impact Ayaka build
Ayaka's main skill is delivering Cryo damage. She does, however, have a poor rate of energy recovery. To capitalize on her capabilities, the perfect build will take both points into account.
The new Mistsplitter Reforged blade was most likely designed to be Ayaka's ideal weapon. It has significant damage, a boost in the user's critical hit rate, and Elemental damage increases under specific situations.
If you've had bad success with weapon Wishes, the forge-able Prototype Rancour is a good substitute.
Blizzard Strayer is an excellent match for Ayaka's Skill and Burst. The two-piece bonus boosts Cryo damage by 15%. If an opponent is infected with Cryo, the four-piece boost boosts Ayaka's critical rate by 20%, and by another 20% if that opponent is frozen.
Another nice option is the new five-star set Emblem of Severed Fate. Its two-piece bonus boosts Energy recharge by 20%, making it an excellent companion for Blizzard Strayer.

Is Ayaka worth the effort?
There are lots of Cryo characters in Genshin Impact, but Ayaka is worth pulling for a several reasons. Her base attack is the same as Eula's, but Ayaka travels quicker and possesses an AoE Burst that does not rely on damage delivered to be effective. Her Alternate Sprint will most certainly come in helpful during her expedition of Inazuma.
