PSO2es Maintenance

  • 5/7/2014 @ 10:55 ~ 17:30 JST
  • 5/6/2014 @ 9:55 PM ~ 4:30 AM EDT

PSO2es Maintenance Contents

  • AC Scratch update

PSUBlog Update

  • After May 1st the site broke down and stopped accepting comments on posts and in the shoutbox. On May 5th, we reset the site and moved it to a new database with increased capacity. Comments and spam from the previous database took up a lot of space, and could take some time to restore due to limitations imposed by the hosting provider. Alternatively, we could just cut our losses and start fresh.

Arks Grand Prix Setup

If you’d like to set up your party as if you were playing in the ARKS Grand Prix, you can follow this list of guidelines.

  • Human = Fighter + Hunter
  • Cast = Gunner + Ranger
  • Newman = Techer + Force
  • Dewman = Braver + Hunter

Near the bottom is a list of PAs or Technics you can use.

Special and Latent Abilities cannot be used on weapons.

However you can acquire these units from the EXCube Shop which has certain abilities attached:

  • Rear / Shouldot c
  • Arm / Apdot c
  • Leg / Legadot c

No photon blasts, auto or trigger actions either unless you’re playing as a Newman. In that case, Newmans are allowed to use Ketos Proi and no other mag actions.

[/wptab]

[wptab name=’Known Issues’]

Known Issues

  • There’s currently a bug where under certain circumstances, the enemy does not display in the [Ebon-Winged Vanguard] and [Paragon of Deceit: Loser] Emergency Quests.

Photon Blast Adjustments

Under certain conditions, a player may be able to pull off a series of photon blasts in a short amount of time. This not only puts a burden on the game servers, but it also considerably affects the game’s balancing. Therefore they have decided to nerf certain aspects of the photon blast in the following ways:

  • The blast gauge will no longer refill when an enemy is damaged from attacks made by the photon blast.
  • There will also be a cap on the amount added to the gauge when an enemy is damaged surpassing its max HP.

These changes will be made sometime in the future.
