It was pretty obvious that this was true however to have some confirmation is great nevertheless.

Or like if FFXIV Shadowbringers' 71-80 new skills did not work in meseta pso2 articles from preceding expansions (that is how it operates now in instances unless you unsync). Although NGS appears to be adding a facet of"What if ShB needed a lot of new skills that replaced your 1-70 abilities that just worked in ShB articles". I am happy they put this information dump out. I had anticipated the majority of this but was not very sure about a couple of things (their wording made me wonder about outfits/clients/etc). You'll be back at Lv1 at NG, and not all courses will be there at start. I meant it in a"we won't have access to our older abilities until we go back to the OG PSO2 ships" sorta way. However, my explanation was awful (and I'm not sure if my new one below's any better). It sounds like rather the midpoint between"hard reset with cosmetic transport" (like moving from Secret Planet to SWL, that was a dumpster fire of a process) and also"routine expansion" (like BfA into Shadowlands, TBC to WotLK, Stormblood to Shadowbringers, etc). It's not quite like FFXIV Realm Reborn (like some people speculated when we heard about it). Because the"old" areas are still a part of mostly the exact same match, and you can go back and play them with all the pre-existing abilities/classes/etc. I'm assuming people who want OG PSO2 makeup would still should earn/buy them in OG PSO2. If that's true, we wind up at something similar to present WoW (if you squint a bit). "Old" content remains relevant for trend purposes and also you are able to go level something in it, but the newest content made for the expansion areas goes off the growth leveling (meaning in this case, all-new/changed/different classes). Along with the skills will presumably be changed enough that a level-cap PSO2 character along with a level-cap NGS personality are going to cheap Phantasy Star Online 2 Meseta feel and act largely differently, even if they share a number of the same ability names/similar capability cartoons. (Compare just like a Wow Classic Paladin into a current BfA Paladin or some thing ).
