Player Class Opinions

Players voiced their opinions in a recent survey about their thoughts on each class.

Hunter Opinion Summary

  • Players liked the changes made to Charge Parrying in both its effects and skill point relief.
  • Players seemed to dislike how slow Hunters are unless they use certain PAs. There are many PAs that require charging, which doesn’t keep up with the game’s current pacing. There are too few mid-range, long-range, and aerial attacks. They also dislike how slow normal attacks are.

The development team plans to look at Hunters again in terms of their attack speed, charging times, and their timing of descent. They also plan to add a new Sword PA in the future.

Ranger Opinion Summary

  • Players liked End Attract and the skill ring [L / P Weak Bullet]. They found the class fun to use due to its range covering support type to damage type! Thanks to its skills, they also liked how fast it was to gain PP.
  • Players disliked how in Ultra Hard, the headshot multipliers were decreased, so it felt like the damage output was too low. They feel PA charging times are too long, and that travel PAs are still slower than other classes. They also felt it’s hard to make good use of Standing Snipe with how fast the enemies move around.

The development team will look into the concerns raised by players and make some adjustments. They’ll look into Standing Snipe and Charge Times again since players were concerned that they do not keep up with the game’s current pacing. They also plan to add a new Launcher PA.

Force Opinion Summary

  • Players enjoyed the various selection of Technics they can use. They also like how you can attack while gathering enemies with Re Zandia. The love the buffs made to Technics that were left in the dust.
  • Players felt the PP efficiency for the class is poor and that they have few options because the PP recovery method available is dependent on the subclass. They want the recast time for Compound Technics to be a little bit shorter, They also feel the required skill points for things are too severe.

The development team plans to relax the points for skills such as Flame Tech S Charge and Bolt Tech PP Save. They will also make adjustments to make it easier to learn other skills.

Braver Opinion Summary

  • Players loved how exhilarating Katana Combat is, and how easy it is to use in dire situations. They love how high Bow’s firepower has become, and how mobile Katana is.
  • Players think Katana’s vertical mobility is poor. They feel Katanas have limited attack range and low power.  They don’t like the over-reliance on Kazami no Tachi. Also, for people who don’t want to specialize in just using one weapon type, they’ll find themselves limited by Skill Points and power.

The team has recently made adjustments to Katana. They are going to relax the skill points and make it easier to acquire skills based on the weapon and style used.

Bouncer Opinion Summary

  • Players like that this class has good compatibility with Phantom. They like the Jet Boot’s mobility and their elemental changing properties. The mobility and evasion performance of the class are great!
  • Players think the Elemental Stance effect is poor. They don’t like how once Rapid Boost’s effect wears off, the Jet Boots become difficult to use. They feel the PA variety for JB is quite limited and becomes kinda monotonous after a while.

The development team will make changes so that Jet Boot’s attack speed rises even when Rapid Boost isn’t in use. They also plan to add a new Jet Boots PA.

Summoner Opinion Summary

  • Players like how easy the class is for beginners and how difficult it is for their character to die. They like how each pet has a somewhat different battle style, and how easy it is understand when your strengthening your pet in battle. They also felt that having different pet color variations added more motivation to the class.
  • Players dislike the amount of time and money they have to invest into raising a pet. They feel there are no advantages to using the “advanced” pets. They don’t like how long they’ve been waiting for a new pet. They also feel that pets do not have enough stamina for Ultra Hard..

They’ve made adjustments to pets in the recent patch in areas such as revival times and PP consumption. They will add new Takts and Candy when the occasion demands.

Fighter Opinion Summary

  • They like how the riskiness of Limit Break leads to considerable damage. They’re fond of Limit Break Insurance alleviating some of the negatives of Limit Break. They find that each weapon type has excellent balance.
  • Players find the class to be lacking in mobility and having a narrow attack range. They see Twin Daggers as having poor PP recoverability. They also feel the class is uncomfortable around large groups of enemies.

Satisfaction surrounding Fighters is pretty high. Regardless, they will continue making adjustments towards PAs that are barely used, and expand the breadth of attack options.

Gunner Opinion Summary

  • Gunners love the high firepower through its chaining, movement speed, PP recovery, and attack range when using Another S-Roll Arts Mode. They find the class to be exhilarating, and thanks to the adjustments made to Chain Trigger’s recast times, the class became even easier to use.
  • Players find Another S-Roll Arts Mode too strong. There are also few scenarios for using PAs and it becomes monotonous. They think it’s difficult to feel the full strength of the class unless you reach Lvl. 85+. They also think it’s difficult to attach Chains to locked on areas.

The development team thinks the PA choices seem a bit narrow due to the utility of Another S-Roll Arts Mode. They are examining making adjustments to Another S-Roll Arts Mode along with buffing PAs that are less likely to be used.

Techer Opinion Summary

  • Players like the increased degree of freedom with having Phantom as the Subclass. Techer used to be just a Support class, but now it can even participate in battle. They like that Shifta and Deband can be applied to the entire party!
  • Techers feel inadequate when playing solo. They also feel that there is an over-reliance on normal attacks, and how the class is too weak for in-air combat. They see the weapon choices to be limited since the attack speed is dependent on the weapon.

Since the satisfaction for Techer as a Support is high, there will be no major changes planned for the class at this time.  They plan to make adjustments for Wand to make it easier to perform in battle, such as relaxing the timing of descent with normal attacks, among other things…

Phantom Opinion Summary

  • Thanks to Shift PAs, players found the freedom of attacks to be expansive and fun! With flashy animations and attacks, players find the class interesting and not boring. They see the class as not too powerful and not to weak, having just the right balance.
  • Players found Phantom Markers difficult to see. The wait time for Quick Cut is too long. They also found that PA power was generally low compared to Technics.

The development team has already made adjustments to Phantom in a recent update. They will advance preparations to improve the playability of the class by improving the visibility of Phantom Markers.

Hero Opinion Summary

  • People think it’s fun to change weapons based on the situation with the Weapon Switching PAs. They like that you can attack enemy from a distance with the Hand Bullets, and fight them up close with swords. They also find it invigorating when they pull off a Counter move.
  • Heroes find it difficult to maintain Hero Boost within Ultra Hard. Also, once Hero Boost wears off, they think the disadvantages are far too great. They think the Hand Bullets are too powerful since they don’t consume PP, and when charged, they deal high damage. They also find Twin Machine Guns and Talises unwieldy compared to Swords.

The development team is looking into making adjustments with Hero Boost. They’re going to review the power reduction that takes place when you take enough damage, as well as have Hero Counter recover a certain amount of that power back. The idea is to have the power drop by 30% each time you take enough damage. (With a 60% reduction being the cap.)

13 thoughts to “PSO2 Station #34 Recap”

  1. Do i need to play any special battles to obtain the LA? I got Idola yesterday, played through the tutorial and some battles but I didn’t obtain anything so far :/

  2. So, weapon craft can now go for 13*? the pic shows the weapon extended rare 13*

    The 4 player ultimate will be pain in ass to clear, already tough fighting UH mode. Now adding shield bodyparts, dodging laser trap and some door device to find it

  3. Ignore this Gene figure, PSO2 staff always doing bad design anime girl (even sexy and expose).

    Don’t buy such anime sexy girl.

    1. Except that the one doing the design for Gene is an outside freelancer. Also, i like my animu gril sexy and have huge animu tiddies. Don’t force your shittaste on me.

  4. “Players find another S-Roll Arts Mode too strong”
    “They are examining to making adjustments to Another S-Roll Arts Mode”

    I’m getting a bad feeling that GU might get hit again from those words?

    “Heros find it difficult to maintain Hero Boost in UH”
    “Hero Counters now will recover Hero Boost”
    “Heros will now lose omly 50% of power from Hero Boost on certain amount of dmg”

    Duh, itt’s Ultra HARD for a reason and HR is an “ADVACED/SUCCESOR” class. If you can’t keep Hero boost than that’s the player’s problem for not being “skilled” enough. It’s funny really how with hero people were all saying that it’s easy and all and now they are whining that they can’t maintain Hero Boost…. Sega sure loves their HRs.

    1. Because hero boost is the biggest weakest to drop down tons dps. If hitted too many times, hero become the weakest class dps compare other class, even weaker than slave buff class techer. Any UH enemy’s 1 hit damage can possible reset hero boost. Either making a super hp build Hero or just change to other class for UH.

      UH getting hard on free field because that shield effect reduce damage taken, and now these photoner’s enemy has some shield bodypart reduce damage taken too. And adding these UH enemy movement fast, require a precise timing doing guard/dodge/counter. Hero is completely disadvantage while phantom is getting more advantage on UH.

      Phantom is already broken for the first day release, and just only few month got another buff. So of course about time Hero need to buff pa or rebalance hero skill too.

  5. Forgot to mention, sega should just remove the compound CD for FOs, like, is sega afraid of “magic” dominating the game or what? unlimited Barantsion FTW
