Question and Answer Session

When taking a screenshot, the character fades out if you move the camera too close to the character. Can you make it so we can take close-up shots?

In a future update, we will make adjustments to allow you to get closer to the character when zooming in with the [Fixed Camera]. This will allow for close-ups without causing fade-outs.

During Mini Episodes, the button to skip dialogue doesn't skip the voice being played.

They plan to improve event scenes so that the voice playback is skipped when the dialogue is skipped by the player. Please note, for event scenes in which the dialogue progresses automatically, the specifications will remain the same as it is now.

Will a Premium Set be required to use the Creative Space?

Everyone will be able to use ONE free Creative Space per Account per Ship. Premium Set users will have access to one additional space. Each Space will be the same size and have the same functions available.

I would like to be able to repeatedly generate Add-On Skills.

In a future update, after Add-On skill generation, a confirmation screen with the same conditions will be displayed making it easier to generate add-on skills in succession.

Can you make photo rooms usable in cities and camps?

We are planning to expand functionality to allow usage of Photo Rooms in cities and camps in the future.

  1. Will already existing weapon series get a gunslash entry added and will that also apply to existing weapon camos that can be applied to every weapon except for gunslashes so far? You know, *シルヴァプリムアルマティ, *リサージュアルマティ, *ククロゼアトアルマティ and so on?

    • Assuming they treat it like they did with Tact, NGS-grade camos for the weapon series should support Gunslash if a Gunslash is made for that category.

  2. Yes! Cast representation for Slayer class!

    I am so happy and relieved that Sega is giving access to free players to the entire Creative Space. Given how stingy they were with Personal spaces on PSO2 with the free personal space, I was expecting to have only access to a small plot of land meanwhile Premium got what was shown on the previous headline. Getting that entire space while Premium users get an additional one is excellent. Premium players get added value to their set and free players aren't punished in any way.

  3. Slayer vs Luster…. I like the name Luster more. Slayer sounds too cringe…. that and the setup for innuendos.

    I'm not expecting Slayer to be a good class. Video is just hyping the class up like they did before. Some people will like it, some people will not. I'll try it out, but I feel like there is going to be much disappointment after the hype.

    • It's a safe bet to expect it to utilize R-ATK. Fully expecting it to have a skill which equals your S/R-ATK to make it more convenient.

    • Yeah, if it doesn't have a Special Ability Optimization skill like Br and Bo, then based on how much they emphasized the range and shooting in the PAs and skills, I would place my bets on it just using R-ATK.

    • Considering the Gunslash at its core in terms of setup is a Striking weapon (note the red icon, not blue), I'd wager it'll be S-ATK based..

      Given that this is likely the ONLY weapon this class can use, they might make it work different and have it scale off the corresponding values per attack like it did in base.. in which case I'd expect a skill like Bo and Br have to use whichever stat is highest for both.

    • This campaign list seems to confirm it will be scaling off R-ATK with the pre-affixes on the weapons.

      @Violent Vodka – Many players had that initial reasoning when Luster was announced. If I recall a lot of Collection File gunslashes on PSO2 also ended up having R-ATK on their pre-affixes. It was very confusing especially with how the PAs were split up in damage.

  4. Very cool, but I wanted them to import and adapt the style of inflicting damage and etc, of the last four classes in PSO2, Hero, Phantom (mainly this one <3), Etoile and Luster. These 4 have really cool potential
