Traverse Planet Lillipa in PSO2’s Ultra Explorations!

~ May 15th, 2019 ~

 

Ultra Explorations

Face a brand new difficulty of foes with [Ultra Explorations]. These quests will cycle through Sub Tunnels, Desert, and Quarry, on a daily basis. Players can join in on the mayhem with a main and sub class of Lv. 85+.

Ultra Explorations comes with several characteristics, such as reduced healing effects, new enemy attachments, and a new enemy classification. The latter two will be explained in the following paragraphs.

 

Coinciding with the Photoner invasion is the mysterious arrival of [Ultralized Enemies]. These enemies have different color schemes and attacks.

 

Sometimes enemies will appear with Photoner infections that increase their health and power while the core sends out powerful attacks. Unlike regular infection cores, these Photoner cores are not considered weakpoints.

 

Enemies can also have barriers, severely reducing the player’s damage. The best way to attack them is to ascertain the weakpoint, such as, hitting them at close range, hitting them from the back, or hitting them from above, etc.

 

Clearing the Emergency Trials may reward players with a S-Class Ability Capsule.

 

List of S-Class Ability Capsules
S1 S2 S3
S1: Radiating Grace S2: Photon Reduction S3: Radiant Strike
S1: Guardian Armor S2: Sturdy Recovery S3: Offensive Intent
S1: Spirited Response S2: Cursed Radiance S3: Skilled Strike
S1: Skilled Brilliance S2: Flowing Grace S3: Vital Intent
S1: Radiant Strike   S3: Wise Skill
S1: Flowing Exhilaration   S3: Rupturing Intent
S1: Double-Edged Sword    
S1: Skilled Strike    
S1: Rupturing Excess    

 

Ultra Hard comes with new 15★ and 14★ weapons!

★15 Resonant Series (Rod, Rifle, and Katana)

  • Potential: +13% Power. When Phantom Mark is detonated, the Marker Accumulation value is increased by a set amount.
  • S-Class Ability Slots: S1, S2, S3

  • Potential: +7% Power. If your HP is below a certain amount for twenty seconds, recover 700 HP, gain 8% power, and reduces received damage by 30% for 120 seconds
  • S-Class Ability Slots: S1, S2, S3

★15 Serpen Blaze (Dual Blades)

  • Potential: +11% Power. Increases normal attack power by 40% and the normal attack range.
  • S-Class Ability Slots: S1, S2, S3

★14 Mirage Series

  • Potential: +6% Power. Increases natural PP recovery by 250% when sheathed, but stops natural PP recovery when unsheathed. Increases PP Recovery from attacks by 50%. When unsheathed with 100% PP, it increases the power of PAs by 12% for 14 seconds.
  • S-Class Ability Slots: S3

★14 Dim Series

  • Potential: +12% power and reduces received damage by 10%.
