Questions & Answers

Will there be other opportunities to obtain Atol Orbit?

  • They don’t have plans for this, however another version of the Orbit weapons will be implemented eventually through Ultra Hard.

What are the requirements for Ultra Hard?

  • Lv.85 for Main and Sub Class will be required.

Will there be plans to update the Expert conditions?

  • Yep! It won’t happen at the launch of Episode 6, but they’ll eventually change the conditions at some point in the future. It appears you’ll need to do solo content this time.

Will “Tech Arts” type skills/rings/abilities apply to Phantoms when they connect Normal PAs to Shift PAs?

  • Tech Arts-type effects require different PAs to connect. If you do Normal PA1 -> Shift PA1, this won’t count because they’re classified as the same PA. Instead you’d need to do Normal PA1 -> Shift PA2 for it to apply.

Are there plans to redistribute the Basilis Weapons?

  • Yes! The Basilis weapons will eventually make a comeback as a drop.

At what point will they allow trading for all ★13 weapons?

  • It’s still too early to say, but someday they want to do it.

  • They don’t have plans for this.

Do they have plans for new compound rings?

Will the Evleda Unit upgrade be strong enough for Ultra Hard?

  • Yes.

So how many people have the entire Austere-NT series?

Do they have plans to raise the PA/Tech level?

  • No.

Hey, so a while back you made adjustments for Bravers in regards to Rapid Shoot and Divine Raikou’s potential. Will we see something similar for Techers, like Wand’s normal attack speed and Lavis Cannon’s potential?

  • Adjustments will be made to Wand’s normal attack speed. We’re going to raise it so that it’s of similar speed to the current S4: Swift Strike. In addition, S4: Swift Strike will be adjusted to be a little bit faster, and will be placed about halfway between Wand’s normal attack speed and Lavis Cannon’s speed.
