  1. Under “Emergency Quest Boost Poll” it mentions +200% XP/RD. When was/is that? Semi-related question since I’m interested due to the collection file: if you earn an OT from a collection file, convert it to NT: can using the base OT (a second one) add the +20 or will it only add +1 since it’s technically a different item?

    1. Those adjustments you can’t call buffs. More like minor unnoticeable adjustments. To make other classes being able to compete with hero they need to make like +50% damage buff to all of those classes. Even if so, hero still will be faster and easier.
      So abandon all hope, sega certainly wants us to ditch old classes and completely switch to advanced ones. Those “buffs” just indirectly confirming that.
      I would expect newer quests having “advanced classes only” requirement.

  2. If I’m reading this correctly, does anyone know if the new “Dudu Day” weekly affix boost is going to affect whether or not they’ll still be doing 10% Affixing boost weeks?

    And does the 5% really only apply to those specific souls and affixes (Power, Shoot, Technic)?

    Again, I’m not sure if I’m reading this correctly (so correct me if I’m wrong) but if this is a reason for them to make fewer boost weeks, I’m going to be a tad disappointed because a 5% boost just isn’t enough.

  3. the affixing is the real problem for pso2 for now. large slots weapon affixing is look like officially recommended by Sega but extra slots is a pain. most of ppl want good wps/units so they have to wait for boost week and the rest days affixing is dead.

    1. weapon is now solved by the presence of SAF, which transform from full RNG to semi RNG + effort (yes you need RNG for certain SAF). an 8s from 6 SAF + 1 booster + 1 manual made affix is possible with base 8s now (given effort in upslotting).

      for unit… upside is one type set (s/r/t or all). and seems no solution yet? (transfer/fusion boost from SG works here though)

    2. SEGA also “officially recommends” fairly idiotic skilltrees, from what people who’ve looked at that feature have been saying, so I don’t really see your point… and “the rest days affixing is dead”, even if true (and I’d like to hear what you base that claim on) is a complete nonissue because that’s not exactly “group content”. People affix their shit (or don’t) according to their personal means, schedules and priorities and that’s 100% their own business.

      Also >implying high slot affixes were even remotely necessary

      Certainly true that while NT weapons delivered us from That Which Is Dudu as far as grinding goes affixing is still a field where the Dark Lord of RNG reigns as before though.

    3. basically i mean ppl rely on boost affix week more nowaday, sometime just for doing extra slots. compared to fewer slot affixing or even old day 3 fodder affix, ppl can do fine without boost week, or most of them (excepts … of course). but for now when the 7s/8s slot wps/units are quite resourceful and more people can afford it, more of them rely on boost week. it now noticeably slows the game down, less affixing, less trading, less mst transter, somehow like a bottleneck for the sega’s attempt. sega once solved the problem with 40% but it was for the time, it’s not enough for now.

    4. it’s not a problem and even less now with hero class, we don’t need hardcore affix to
      to disintegrate all content.

    5. Adding more affix doesn’t means better too, units with 3 -4 slots only but has powerful affix is good enough such as Apperence/modulator/ether factor. Those who has affix Apperence/Modulator/Ether factor with 5+ slots units is the only few rich players can effort it.
