Players Impressions of Phantom at the Arks X-Mas Party

  • A survey was conducted for the overall impressions with Phantoms.
  • Generally, players had positive impressions with each weapon type.
  • They liked the originality of the Rifle “bit” mechanic.
  • They felt Rods were a bit stiff with their PAs and normal attacks, and that it was hard to combine that with Technics.

In response to these issues, the development team will focus on relaxing the cancellation timings with Rods. They will also improve the degree of freedom in relation to the operating mechanics.

  • The survey continued where players overall liked the class in general.
  • They thought the class was fun and felt different from other classes.
  • However, they were somewhat dissatisfied with how difficult it was to understand. They didn’t like the time it took to figure out how to use it.

In response to these issues, the development team will focus on making it easier to understand. They will add a Shift PA display guide and enhance the contents of the Phantom Training Quest.

  • Other impressions included how hard it was to see Phantom Markers, and know the difference between their levels.
  • They didn’t quite understand when you were invincible during Stealth Tech Charge.
  • They also felt that Phantom Finishers were a bit plain

In response to this, they will make the effects easier to understand. Animations and visual effects will be adjusted.

  • Players want to know what PAs and Skills you have access to when Phantom is set as a subclass.
  • They want the game to have that Rockbear that never dies.
  • They want to have more time in trying out the class.

In response to this, the Phantasy Star Fan Festival in March will allow attendees to try out the class.

They might also do that invincible Rockbear, but it’s not set in stone right now.

Phantom Stuff

  • There’s going to be a Phantom Mag skill that converts DEX into S/R/T
  • Photon Stream is a skill that, according to the X-Mas Party pamphlet, increases the critical rate, critical power, and dealt damage based on your Max PP. At skill level 5, you can reach the cap of 10% Power with 200 PP. In addition, you can reach the critical rate cap (whatever that value is) with 300 PP.
  • Some potentials will be adjusted in some way while Phantoms are using them. This could result in things like lower potential multipliers or values, etc. Items like Quelle Neigia would be affected.
  • Phantom will be officially abbreviated as [Ph].
  • More to be added.

Dark Falz Persona

  • Details about the boosted version of this quest will be revealed in the next PSO2 Station.

SUPER PSO2 Day

  • February 2nd will be Super PSO2 Day. (The joke is how it’s 02/02)
  • On February 2nd, 2019 @ 0:00 ~ 23:59 JST, the following will occur:
