  • After your initial transfer, you must now wait 166 hours before you can transfer again to another ship.
  • They plan to return it back to its original hours, some time in the future.

Photon Art: Infinity Fire

  • In August 27th’s Maintenance, they set the wrong values for Infinity Fire, making the photon art’s power lower than intended. They plan to correct this issue in the future.

Extreme Quest Bug

  • They’ve confirmed a bug where the Absorption skill fails the “No Healing” stage order in Extreme Quests. They plan to correct this issue in the future. 

Persona’s Voice Clips

  • They’ve confirmed a bug where Persona’s voice clips aren’t playing in the “The Reason I Was Born” story quest. They plan to correct this issue in the future.

Mesetan Shooter Bug

  • They’ve confirmed a bug that rarely occurs, where extra balls will drop when defeating an enemy in the Mesetan Shooter casino game. They plan to correct this issue in the future.

Photon Art: Messiah Time

  • In August 27th’s Maintenance, they set the wrong values for Messiah Time, making the photon art’s power lower than intended. They plan to correct this bug in the future.

October Balance Adjustments

Due to the mistakes they made in their balance adjustments, the development team identified two problems:

  • “Cluster Bullet” launcher PA is too powerful.
  • Some parameters for Customized Technic Disks are too high.

Considering these problems will also greatly affect the balancing of future updates, they decided to nerf the following in October:

  • Cluster Bullet’s power.
  • Some of the parameters produced by Technic Customizations.

This change will affect custom disks both used and unused.

Gunner Balance Adjustments

In regards to Gunner, they’ve decided to buff Gunner’s photon arts and make the class less reliant on [S-Roll JA Bonus]. However, by enforcing those changes they discovered issues with how extremely powerful [Chain Finish], [S-Roll JA Bonus], and [Celestial Bullet (latent)] can be. They plan to perform adjustments to the Gunner class and will deliver an [All Skill Tree Reset Pass] as compensation.

These changes will occur sometime in October.

System Change

  • Because a large number of ship transfers may increase the burden on the servers; they’ve temporarily extended the time frame to reuse the ship transfer function from 24 hours to 166 hours.
  • Block names for each ship has changed.

Bug Fixes

  • Corrected a bug where the Meseta rewards for Klotho’s Time Attack client orders were lower than intended.

  1. Along with Infinity Fire, it seems they have also messed up the power of Messiah Time and will be fixing that.

    There’s also a comment from the development team regarding Gunner balance. Reducing S-Roll JA but making Chain Trigger deadlier has turned Gunner into more of a periodic burst damage class. That said, they’re not quite satisfied with the current balance Gunner has and plan to readjust things come October.

    The problem with S-Roll JA is that it discourages comboing Photon Arts, and instead promotes a very narrow form of play. The same can be said for Guld Milla’s potential. In any case, we have another month before they decide which way they’re going to revise things.

    Gunner aside, they’re also reducing Launcher PA Cluster Bullet’s damage, and some of the Tech Customize power levels. The power reduction will also include unused Tech Customize items that have already been crafted.

    1. If we’re fortunate, since Io is a Braver/Gunner then her Bow will have a latent ability that boosts Chain Trigger build rate (similar to the Twin Chain skill which is TMG-only) or Chain Finish damage. Rapid Shoot + Chain Trigger is already an amazing combo.

    2. Zero Distance applies to Bullet Bow attacks and PAs, even the blow-element ones (Tritt Shooter). Chain Trigger works with all weapons, but it is especially useful on long-range rapid-fire weapons such as TMGs, Assault Rifles, and Bullet Bow during Rapid Shoot. Try Breaking a Chain Finish with Kamikaze Arrow in Zero Distance with Weak Stance.

  2. They’ve confirmed a bug where too many balls are dropping when defeating an enemy in the Mesetan Shooter casino game. They plan to correct this issue in the future.

    wat

  3. Well that sucks as a main gunner taking away the power of my S Roll Ja is going to be a major downer. That class was unique because of that aspect. Taking that out will make the class boring probably.

    1. Yeah. TOTALLY boring…

      Because spamming either Elder Rebellion, Infinite Fire, or Messiah Time every time after a Stylish Roll to JA it is REALLY fun…

    2. lol theres more to it then that. its stylish evading and moving around a lot in mid air while spamming those abilities. its a hell of a lot more interesting then spamming on any other class lol

    3. I’ve been playing Gunner since it was released, and no, it is not any more interesting than spamming whatever moveset another class has. Personal preferences is what makes it interesting. Their nerfing of the Roll JA Bonus is entirely necessary, otherwise it just becomes Shunka 2.0.1/Gu. If that makes the class boring for you, you’re probably playing it for the wrong reasons.

  4. So is there no way to play the PSVita version? I just bought this console for PSO2, I imported a Japanese copy of the game and I just get error code 249….

    I’ve tried 3 different ISPs but no luck, even tried my mobile internet.

    1. not many people know this, and im pushing the one who found this out to make a post about it on PSO-W or any other large pso forum site.

      anyway if you connect your computer to a VPN, allowing you to bypass the ISP block on PSO2, you can then (if you have a newer computer) broadcast a hotspot from that computer then connect to the hotspot with your Vita and there you have it!
