@AndrlCh Thank you very much. I meant no offense by asking for conformation, but better safe than sorry.

@ZarexWolf Good thing I'm in the bug report section then. For a moment from your reaction I was worried I missed something (like it was really a female armor, and the avatar was just androgynous.. or something.. not that, that would make any sense since the last slot is usually male outfits)
for me it only pops up saying:
"This purchase might contain item(s) that cannot be used by your current character. Are you sure you want to buy it?"
When it's a male outfit, on a male toon. Unless there is some extraneous reason as to why I cannot wear it?
Tittle says it all. "The Daily Items" will however the "Recommended Hot Items" will not show. (I do have enough SG to purchase it) Correct me if I'm wrong but I was certain it did before, if it didn't this is an oversight that should be rectified.
This deters any incentive for me to spend my SG if I can't even tell how it will look on my character or how it will affect my other gear that determines colour scheme.
Side note: Currently you can only preview items you have enough SG for. I'm unsure if this is a bug, but if this is intentional, that is a terrible design for both the consumer and the company. This should preview REGARDLESS of the amount of star gems a player has. This will allow customers to make an informed decision, while also effectively advertising the product to convince people to buy SG, or push them to farm SG, (giving drive to potential customers and keeping them in the game.)
"Stop ERPing in B1, and git gud" - quote from a funny youtube vid I saw :^)
But seriously: If you know her moves you can beat her it only then becomes a war of attrition and if you can do enough damage to get that S-Rank. This is essentially a Sekiro fight.
Suggestion: Lock on, this will help you track her and keep an eye out for her animations.
Break down of her moves:
"I can run circles around you!" - Ranged stun with a lengthy charge time, You can see the energy gathering closer giving the obvious tell. You only need to dodge when she fires meaning if you feel you can get a few hits in go for it.
"You wont escape!" - Two energy blades in both hands as she runs at you for a multi hit kill combo, just get out of the way you can dodge through or past her if you need to. Follows up with "How do you like that!?"
"There!" - Does a pretty evident clock wise twirl before charging at you with a upper-cut kick, This should also be slow enough to dodge and also gives you an opportunity to get some damage in. Follows up with "How do you like that!?"
"How do you like that!?"- Jumps into the air and lands with a fire blast. Dodge or be out of range of the fire blast.
"I have you now!" - dashes forward twice, kicking forward sending out an energy wave, she maintains her trajectory if you avoid one blade you can likely avoid the other.
A lot of her moves come in pairs so watch out for it.
"Ha! x2-3" - (hardest move to deal with imo) This has no audio tell before she does it. She crouches down and dashes to your current location regardless of altitude shouting "Ha!, Ha!" You need to evade this and learn it's timing to do it consistently. Sometimes she will do Two Dashes and follow up with one of the other attacks. OR will do three dashes in a row. Either way they often (but not always) come in two sets of three.
be careful for the second set, you will often need to wait for it to finish, just because she did a move you're familiar with doesn't mean she's open; it's dangerous to get into an offensive mindset after the first set. She will often say "Are you done?" when she's vulnerable after the second set giving you a chance to get in some hits.
Pattern Examples: "Ha!, Ha!, You won't escape! (then) Ha!, Ha!, Ha!" or "Ha!, Ha!, I can run circles around you!, I have you now, (then) Ha!, Ha!, Ha!". Often finishing with "You done?"
Phase 2: Her follow ups seemingly come out a little faster, (pretty sure) she will do increased damage, and whatever weapon you used to damage her with (or tech element) she will have resistance to. You now also have stage hazards with red circle rings on the floor, and she's not afraid to double up on "I can run circles around you." -Warning-: She will break target lock-on just before going into her new pattern prepare to re-target.
"Do try not to die" - (her only new move in Phase 2) She will shoot a line of fire at you three times, each one following a short repositioning dash, just be patient and dodge it, wait for the third (and any possible follow ups) before DPSing her, She is usually vulnerable after this. Preferably dodge towards the side, if you try and evade backwards or forwards you may be caught in it's hurt box.
Extra tips: If you're struggling to get that S-Rank you can grab damage buffs from Alliance and drink on the bridge before each attempt. Don't bother buffing for defense you should play assuming every attack is going to kill you anyways.
This is how I beat her; Hope this helps.
Side note for casters: If you hit her with your Rod or Talis to get PP she seems to resist all the tech elements from that weapon type? Not sure if bug but I ran into this when I was first doing it and haven't tested since.
