  1. Being level 80 is like walking around with a certificate that states: "I have no life outside this game". I used to love this game, but it has worn out its welcome with me. I just see it for what it is now… a boring, repetitive grind-fest. The only thing to strive for is to be an elitist jerk, and not just have fun playing with others online.

    1. I feel that way sometimes too. I've played since Oct. of 2012 and have taken so many breaks away from pso2. It is a grind fest, but it's also a lot more if you broaden your experience. Also what MMORPG isn't as grind fest? Like one, name just one.

    2. Saying the only thing to strive for is to be an elitist jerk is so ignorant i'm so dumb founded. 13* 35+ is not hard to get since the revolucio collection sheets came out. What it seems like is you want shit to be hand fed to you and not actually work and strive to be max level. Most everyone damn mmo out there is a grind fest for gear and that's what you have to do in pso2 as well. If that post honestly isn't bait like the cutie posted before me then man you need to get watch your self before you wreck your self even more than you already have.

    3. I came back to the game about 2 months ago, barely any 13*s, missing a bunch of class cubes. Just doing EQs casually with CFs and doing stuff like my TAs with all appropriate boosts on, I've completed all the +35 reqs and class cubes.

      Its really very easy as long as you enjoy the game. If you don't? Then yeah it probably seems pretty damn hard but then again why would you still be playing anyway?

    4. Level 80 requires one 13* weapon grinded to +35.
      I've gotten several Fornis Diene (sword) through the White day event as random drops, one of which was +34 natively. It took me less than a few days to make a +35 sword.

      Level 80 also requires class excubes. The kind that existed for literal years.
      And today you can earn a literal 4 million exp by running one Tokyo gold bonus key, and feasibly level once in 3-5 Limited quests (such as Vegas). You need only 21 class cubes to get the final title.

      Granted this isn't even "expert block" tier levels of elitism. You gain the requirements to be level 80 by simply playing the game and doing the EQs. There are ridiculously easy to get Revolucio 13*s through the collection files if you need them as well.

      Point being, if you consider level-cap to be "elitism", something tells me you're a regular in blocks 1-15.

    5. Fael is right – unlocking lvl 80 cap is easy. If you can't meet these requirements – you can still play the game – but I think it shows just the opposite of what you do – it will show us just who is unwilling to do these minimal objectives to have a decent character which can reach lvl 80 – and anyone who can't/won't – isn't even putting in what I would call minimal effort – and as such you'll be relegated to blocks with others who play like you – aka not really trying – which sounds good to me. See the rest of yall in the lvl 80 blocks! 🙂

    6. The only way it could look suspicious, if the post expressed joy or excitement in regards to the game. You know its a red flag when someone tries to display some sort of amusement in a swamp of wrath, disappointment and dissatisfaction.

    7. Forgive me for biting on "low quality bait" as random put it, but srsly alot of ppl in game crying about this cap raise. I just look at em puzzled and even guided em how go about it. If you think this game is a grind fest then lol….this game is cake compared to most MMOs I have played in terms of grind. That is unless your one of the many players who can't balance upgrading your stuff and more they type to say "Fashion is the true end game."

    8. YEAH tbh, I mean I personally find the grind cap stuff kind of weird but the requirements are things we've had plenty of time to do, and we've certainly been waiting for a cap raise for a LONG time. And this is coming from me, a lazyass who didn't cap her subclass until it was absolutely necessary.

      I do feel that the requirements will take some time for newer players, but at the same time, with collect files and stuff… it's not like you have to be level 75 to get a +35 13* weapon. They're pretty generous with the collect files and events. Especially with how long the Revolucio series is gonna be around this time.

      Personally I say just let people complain because people will complain about ANY patch.

  2. Do you get one Skill Tree Reset Pass for each character that you have? Cause I need to fix a few of them.

    1. According to everytime it has happened you do get one per character. If you have spare character slots I suggest you create throwaway characters to profit.

  3. Does Anyone know what HairStyle that is at 2:29 of the video? It looks like some side ponytail, or has it not come out yet?

  4. Hold on, is that the biggest Crit Rate bonus granted by a Potential to date? That Potential would be bonkers if it wasn't stuck on a 10*.

  5. Undocumented update information: Another Genesis Weapon Camo is coming along with Clarissa III, confirmed by PSO2es. Presuambly Double Saber appeared in PSO2es story.
