PSO2 JP: Campaigns (10/11/2017)

Good news, everyone! The site is mostly back up and functional. We’ve unfortunately had to move to a significantly more expensive web host.

The site experienced connection issues around Monday morning, and went into an unresponsive state over the course of the night. During this time we moved to a different host in hopes that it could keep up with our heavy system resources. That failed and we were forced to move again. Things are semi-stable for now, but it’s very likely we may have to move again very soon. Unfortunately we’re encountering issues which may significantly delay the content of the site, so we’re asking for some support during this troubled time.

 


With the increased server costs, we’ll need help more than ever to keep the site going. Please consider supporting our ongoing Phantasy Star coverage with a donation of $1 or more.

  • Changed the conversion rate to 100%
  • Becomes a default skill

 

Future Balance Adjustments

Movement Speed Improvements

  • They are looking into measures so you don’t have to continuously use movement type PAs/Technics. They’ll announce whatever their plans are in the future.

Technic Battle Tempo Improvements

  • They are looking into implementing a skill that treats charged technics as Just Attacks.

Gameplay Content to Test the Strength of Powerful Players

  • They plan to release content in the future where the enemies are stronger. They’ll increase the rare drop rate in response to match how difficult it is.

 

Other Stuff

Trick or Treat 2017

  • The EQ will drop a new ★13 Talis (Lumihorrey)

Solo Buster Quest

  • You’ll soon be able to start a Buster Quest solo.

Dark Blast

  • Dark Blasts can be used once per quest and lasts for 60 seconds.
  • In the future, you might be able to customize the color too!
  • Dark Blast EXP is shared among the account, but the skill assignment is character based.
    • (Dark Blast has a bunch of skills that requires a set amount of EXP to level up. For example, Punishment Short Charge reduces the charging times for Punishment Knuckle. This skill requires zero EXP on LV. 1, but then asks for a very high amount on Lv. 2. Also on an unrelated note, some Dark Blast skills require certain actions before they’re unlocked in the Dark Blast Skill List.)

Emergency Buster Quest

  • Emergency Buster Quests will have difficulties: N, VH, SH, XH
  • The enemy level in SH is 75
  • ★14 may drop in SH too, but the drop rate on XH is higher.
  • XH requires Lv. 80/80
  • You can play two times per ship.
  • Elder Pain Omega is said to have a potential similar in some way to Elder Pain.

  • Buster Quest Play Stamina limit will be removed.

  • Deus ★14 weapons will drop in the next ABR

  • They plan to add weapon camos with each country.

Story Quest Campaign (TBA Oct 11)

  • You can get EP Zero Memory by clearing upcoming story content in chapter 2 and one of Episode 2’s Omnibus Quests.
  • Exact details will be announced during an upcoming maintenance.

Ultimate Quest Resuscitation

  • They’re thinking about having NT versions of the Slave series, etc, in the future. 
  • Ultimate Amduscia is getting a special boost for a limited time. It’s the type that buffs the enemies while increasing the RDR.
  • ★14 will be inserted into the drop table during this special boost.

Special Ability Reordering

  • They haven’t finalized their decision yet, but they’re thinking of having a feature that reorders the list of the special abilities.

More to be added.
