The Magika Fleurir (＊マギカ・フルーリア) was always my favorite Rod Camo. Would love to see it.
(I also would love to see this outfit return too T__T)
I'm really bad at talking about myself but Hi! I played PSO2 (Japan server) from roughly 2014? (maybe 2013) for about two years, only really stopping due to it being kind of hard to keep up with when it came to the AC and everything ^^; I only started as late as I did in hopes to the North American version would come out and then slowly gave up hope, but really happy to finally play it officially dubbed.
While I'm not new, I can be a bit clumsy and I don't remember all the features, but I do my best! I hope to re-get everything I had on the Japanese server <3
Updated with stuff from the newest Scratches.

This is beautiful.
Thank you to everyone sharing stuff!! I've been meaning to look more myself, but I keep getting a bit overwhelmed.
I think the only thing that looks a bit weird to me are the NGS faces? But maybe they will look better when playing around with the different parts.
I really hope we'll see some kind of compensation for its absence-- it's one of the features I used most from Premium (the other being My Room which there's passes I can get from the FUN Scratch to use anyway) and it made it a lot easier with giving items to friends. While sometimes we'd use the shop, I'd usually trade the Meseta back after which obviously isn't possible now.
I've had to resort to buying up gift boxes with FUN Points to place in friends' rooms which I'd be less frustrated with if it wasn't one item per box. I've spent well over 30,000 Fun Points at this point and just end up using most of my EX-Cubes for more now.
I get that it's my choice to work around the issue that way, but it's still a huge problem and I'm shocked it wasn't brought back this maintenance.
There really hasn't been anything new added to it, but a lot of other campaign things or like the IDOLA items that were originally trade ins were made into a new Scratch instead. I have so many Mission Pass Badges just sitting around and I'd love to see more things that were originally merchandise redemption codes get added to the Mission Badge Exchange Shop like the Instruments, as one example.
It just feels kind of empty right now and it'd be nice to have more to exchange for.
@Miraglyth Considering the amount of times they "accidentally" had something able to be sold and had to lock it down while they properly made it bound, it wouldn't surprise me
I'd be less frustrated if they just let people trade/sell them as there's no good reason not to.
But yes, thank you as always for the heads up
I just don't have much SG to use (Especially when Fresh Finds has items for only one or two days -_-)
Yeah, Fresh Finds and the condensed SG scratches (3 years' worth over 10 months) has really stretched our SG thin hasn't it? It just hasn't been balanced for Global.
After 80 scratches of Mother's Disciples I'm 1 for 6 on the items I wanted (the odds of getting less than 2 after 80 scratches worked out to less than 1% by the way ) and even if I give up on the least important of those I'll still need one more to be done with that in conjunction with 3 choice tickets. I have enough for 70 scratches as things stand, so I'm tempted to see if I fluke out on one of them with a handful of scratches (heck knows I'm owed some SG luck) which would free up the potentially 40 scratches I'd need for the one thing I want from Fallen Heroes.
The trouble is if that doesn't work out I'd be completely screwed for Astral Guardians since I want four things from that too and no way am I getting the up to 12,800 SG needed for that in four months. And then there's anything that comes into Fresh Finds in its horrid 24-hour flash sale model...
Yeeeeeep. And it doesn't even count SG items I would've really liked and couldn't afford or had to pass incase of something I want more or items I completely missed out on (Logging in each day isn't always possible for me) ... And I can't even manage to get enough of the ridiculous amounts to trade in for the SG Scratch Swap items either. It sucks.
I did 19 Scratches for Fallen Heroes so nearly halfway to the redeem ticket, but with 4 items I definitely want and one maybe, it still wouldn't help much if I have no luck which is what I usually do. I did multiple pulls and literally got the Scenery Pass 3 times in a row at one point. It sucks.
Mother's Disciples I did the most where I did exactly 40. Since there was the one campaign you got a ticket from and I managed to pull enough for one, I managed to get the two things I wanted most. There's still four items I want, but I just am run dry funds-wise.
The newest SG scratch too-- I want like... 13 items and that doesn't even include the music tracks I might want because I can't find which each one may be. I've only been able to pull on it 13 times so far.
My husband, meanwhile, hasn't really wanted much of anything so he's sitting here with like 4,000SG and he can't even help me out with some of the stuff I want because it's all bound. It's just a constant lose-lose situation. And especially when you look at the costs and it's like $18 or something to be able to afford an outfit from the Fresh Finds shop... Even if I was in a better money situation, I'd have a really hard time justifying that.
I've never been good at saving up in general with games so it's not like I'd be in a great position to afford things even if they weren't bound, but at least I could slowly save up for them in a way that felt less out of reach
As for Fresh Finds, I just keep praying I don't want any item packs because I can barely afford the separate items, let alone those... So I just hope none of the color variants I want end up in one. I only have 577SG right now so it's like... pull on a SG Scratch or keep it on hold incase of Fresh Finds and it's a terrible feeling. I'm doing what I can to earn more (and as a note, that amount is AFTER the 150SG earned from the UQ campaign), but it's not going super well.
It doesn't help how random things are releasing or how not even all colors are kept together so I don't even know when to expect certain things to even properly prepare for it.
But yes, good luck T~T I really wish something would be done because as much as I get they want to catch us up, this isn't fair at all with the current set-up and it's just not possible unless you can afford spending tons of money. And I have spent money on PSO2 for AC both in the original Japanese release and this, but I can't keep up with this schedule at all.
There's definitely a few things I still want, but I just don't have much SG to use (Especially when Fresh Finds has items for only one or two days -_-) and I can't justify the prices to buy any
I really wish Star Gems just weren't a thing.
This is specifically why I said NPCs that can help and not just partners from the current partner system.
Having multiple NPC partner systems would be rather redundant.
Though, they can be helpful sometimes, I'm not sure how much that would be for Challenge Mode
At least in general combat they could be about as helpful as a regular player but like I said this would require an overhaul which is already far overdue and once you get them to the desired level of performance you could add alterations in their behavior for specific game modes.
It's less an additional partner system as I'm talking about something that would automatically fill in/jump in when it sees less of a specific number in a party for certain modes.
That said, considering there apparently won't be a partner system in NGS, I don't know if we'll ever see an overhaul of it.
