ARKS Operation Report

Do you plan on going higher than 20 for Add-on Skills? If so, can you make Master Cubes easier to get and ease up on the randomization of Sub-Effects?

There are currently no plans to unlock higher-level Add-on Skills, nor make any changes to the Sub-Effect drawing specifications.

Ways to obtain N-Master Cubes will be gradually added through new Titles and Seasonal Events.

Can you please expand the lineup of items we can get in exchange for Genesis Points (GP)?

We are considering adding Special Ability Capsules and material items for enhancement to the Genesis Point Exchange Shop lineup in a future update.

In conjunction with this, we will also release quests that allow you to earn more Genesis Points and we will raise the weekly point limit for quests where you can earn points.

Can you please increase the number of downloadable designs for Creative Space.

We are currently testing increasing the number of designs that can be downloaded. We are working on a modification to increase the number from 20 to 40 for all users. Please sit tight until this is implemented.

I would like to have more opportunities to get the accessories and other items available in PSO2 Classic's FUN Scratch Tickets.

We plan to release accessories, lobby actions, and hairstyles from past FUN Scratches in the Reward Box feature implemented in December 20th. The contents of the Reward Box will be updated regularly and we plan to re-release items from past FUN Scratch tickets.

Will you address Enhancement Materials like Gold Prim Sword taking up a lof of space in Storage?

In a future update, we plan to allow the exchange of Gold Prim Sword II and Gold Prim Armor II for the Capsule [C/Endymio] at the Item Recycle and the Exchange Enhancement Material Shop.

The capsule [C/Endymio] will also be exchangeable for Gold Prim Sword II and Gold Prim Armor II.

This feature will be implemented sometime in December.
