I love the fact that this thread is a thing, hopefully some of the older forgotten items come back!
Trump Card Hat
Shooting Star Flying Shoes
Glow-in-the-Dark Bracelets (They were in an event in Festia and were horribly rare, the red and yellow are 5 star and the green never even got a star rating on Ruairi)
The music notes homestead items that were also in the MusicQ event
Blue Cutiefly Wings (From the 8th anniversary, never got a star rating on Ruairi)
Mysterious Cores Roswell
Flame Wings (still semi common, but haven't been out since Saga)
Spirit Ego Wings
Old Hummingbird Wings
Original Bone Wings
The Sweet Wigs that were out last time Doki Doki came out, as well as the heart wings if they don't get rereleased with Doki.
The Cheerleader bags (or at least the Pom-Poms, only Eluned versions have been rereleased)
The squire scrolls if they're not included in the 11th anniversary package.
The Sweet Ginger Bear set from the Candy Witch event is still mostly 5 star on Ruairi
Sonata (It's technically attainable currently but did originally come out as a burn in gacha)
You can never go wrong with haunted/creepy/eerie/spooky enchants either
Maybe the Steampunk outfits, Echo Dresses, and Private Academy Outfit type of items, but they've all been out semi-recently.
There were also rainbow sheep transformations from the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing event that were really rare, they'd be nice to return.
I'd also LOVE to see the old gachapon/event only sewing patterns and tailoring kits come back as gacha fails, they're great items for people trying to collect for the dressing room. (ie. Iria Treasure Hunt and Production Gachapons)
And just to cover all bases, in terms of events it'd be great to see the Dragon Boat, Samhain event (maybe with the improved version of the bags as a purchaseable prize), and Treasure Box Events come back.
Unfortunately, I think out of all the events Mabi's had, this is one of the ones that are least deserving of being extended. The big reward that a lot of people saved coins for 3 weeks for was gone within hours, the best bag you can buy costs an outrageous amount of coins when you consider that it was a rather common drop in the event gacha Mabiland had 2 years prior, and they didn't even give the roulette board this year, where in past years you could win 100k just for spinning it. The cave of trials is really only something people try a few times, as it's pretty obvious where your limits are if you keep dying from the same boss. I did the thank you notes in half an hour, just use either kitchen dungeon or nowhere to run to get them to drop easily.
I don't mean to sound like a downer, but this Mabiland is very lack luster compared to past years. If you're worried about the bag space, I wouldn't fret too much. We got 10x10 personal shop bags just a few months ago as a login item, and bags have been in quite a few of their more recent events, including this current egg event which gives a 6x9 bag, so as long as you keep your eyes open you should be able to get bag space without much trouble.
While I don't like multiclienters abusing events, I think the bigger picture should be looked at. Having multiple accounts is not against the terms of service, if I'm wrong please direct me to where it says they are because I looked through it thoroughly. But using 3rd party programs and mods are. I think there's a huge difference between doing an event on multiple accounts and putting in actual effort to get more chances at getting the items, and multiclienting or macroing like 8 accounts at a time just to afk them. I think the problem comes down to how Nexon creates the events in the first place. First, we have normal afk events. But then multiclienters abuse it, so now we have ones where we have to click a button every hour/15 minutes/whatnot. It's similar with the login events, people abused it so they made a 36 minute wait period. The issue is this isn't affecting the people who are the serious problem. Now the "normal" player who doesn't have any third party programs has to be attentive and clicking regularly, while the person who was already multiclienting will just macro whatever they need and do it just as easily. Even with this recent Festia event, within 5 minutes of the server going up (which was ~40 minutes before schedule to boot) there were already alt armies on and doing the event. That isn't humanly possible. If they want people to stop abusing the events they'd need to have harsher punishments when they're obviously modding or using third parties like this.
But that's not the only issue with how Nexon plans their events. We have items like the NPC figure box and the Kindergarden Squire trans medals. where you can only get 1/6-7 potential items for logging in. So if you want to collect them or get a particular one, it's still going to cost you despite being a login event item. This even bleeds over to the event gacha's RNG. I don't know if they assume everyone plays on like 20+ characters or if there's just no rebalancing from KR's population to NA's, but the odds for nearly every event item in the last couple years has been absolutely atrocious. On Ruairi there are a couple items, such as Blue Cutiefly wings from Mabi's 8th anniversary and the green Glow-in-the-Dark Bracelet from MusicQ, that have zero stars because they never even made it into the dressing room. The fact that event items come out and are so rare that they never make it into the server just makes no sense to me. Why go through the effort and then have your playerbase unable to even enjoy it?
This goes for both event gacha and prizes you buy with earned coins. Because Mabi limits the amount you can earn on one character, you're often forced to choose which prize you want the most, and then you have to either purchase the other items from other players or use alt accounts to get them. So even more so than trying to regulate modders and multiclienters, I think they need to look at how lazy their forms of events have gotten. Most are usually to just stand around and afk or fish or something similar to that. Off of the top of my head, I can only think of 5 events where you could spam the entirety of it on one character and be guaranteed all the rewards: Samhain Event, Star Piece Event, Maple Leaf Event, Dragon Boat Event, and Meowbinogi. For the most part all of these events are met with fewer complaints and I usually notice a temporary boom in active population with events like these. So I'd say it's more events like these we need and not afk/semi-afk events. I think for a majority of people, they don't want to be on alts majority of the time, they want to play their main character that they worked hard on. It's Mabi's event design that isn't allowing that to happen. So while I don't like how abused the events are by multi clienting, I dislike even more so how Nexon has made their events this exploitable to begin with.
