    1. seems like you don’t read good buddy. if you did u can clearly see that u will e able to make up the difference in other quest

  1. Don’t tell me that you will need to do Dailies, Weeklies AND TACOs to get the same amount of money you got from just TACOs before.

    1. Based on the video, to get the full 2.1 million reward reward from the Weekly ARKS Missions you will need to Grind an Item (605,000 meseta), clear and SH TA (405,000 meseta not including Klotho’s COs), and receive 200,000 meseta from COs (1,000,000 meseta, not counting the meseta needed to clear it).

    2. Arg, minor typo; 2.01 million. Plus with the SH TACO and the Harkotan TACO, your final total ends up ~2.32 million a week (assuming that you clear the 200,000 meseta Mission using the SH TACO).

    3. Basically you’ll need to run 1 SH TA per character each week instead of the 1 SH TA, 4 VH TA, 3 XQ runs you had to do prior. This makes creating additional characters for me more appealing tbh.

    4. Thank goodness. 90% of the game is tekking weapons, updating shop. Doing TAs is like 70% and 5% actually playing for fun. So now it will give us more time to enjoy the game rather than endure it.

  2. Ph ST looks like lame compared to Hr ST… These Jellen are kind of useless, this could be replaced by more useful stuff. I don’t need to mention about Critical Stream requires 300 PP for maximum effect lol… That’s funny because most players won’t be able to get the maximum buff effect because SEGA’s crazy in putting 300 PP for max effect. LOL

    1. Or the amount of PP will naturally grow as they add new Units / new affixes. Or perhaps the crafting revival they keep teasing won’t suck who knows.

    1. In addition to downloading the game, you’ll need to make a Sega account on their site to log in with, which isn’t too much trouble despite the form being in Japanese. If, when you start the game, you find you have no sound at first, just download DirectX from Microsoft’s site. 🙂

    1. It covers all, meaning that we’ll be finally able to exchange loads of badges for Galeru/yurgundur stones if we need them for Nemesis/Slave exchange

  3. PSO2 staff removed Klotho’s Client Orders only this;
    – A Test of Heart and Soul I
    – A Test of Heart and Soul II
    – A Test of Heart and Soul III
    – Extreme Training Test I
    – Extreme Training Test II

    NAH, those ppls are wrong because players too selfish are never 4/4 party. This is very end like this, maybe PSO2 staff already know it why? PLAYERS EVEN SOLO AT TACO WITHOUT 4/4 PARTY, PLAYERS TOO SELFISH OP OVER.

    Sob, a kind sad. I can’t rich Meseta anymore with 3 characters sob, I can’t buy good dress and cloth anymore (I begin hateful). but nah this is good…..Answer is….

    TACO don’t want they too selfish, because too OP and solo only without 4/4 party, just spam at “Harkotan” only? Reason players too selfish, never get 4/4 party on TACO. You are wrong, because you are solo and op over too selfish, for now…. can’t rich Meseta, very hard want buy cloths, Hair tickets, Lobby Actions or items etc at Visiphone, don’t buy too much, try save a Meseta on your storage.

    PS: This is not my fault, but not only me, has some players very dislike solo TACO why? At when… I know that why they chat with me ;=A=)*sign

    Don’t blame me, I said true…

    1. What are you on about, Arks missions literally give you the same Meseta, even more actually, but now you have to run 1 TA weekly instead of 5 + 3XQ per character.

    2. No idea can get rich Meseta at next day. Well we just doing Daily Quest only Buster Quest I-III, Boss Quest only have “above 100,000meseta” and Fishing Quest. Also Yersek’s Quest at Cafe Area, we really want hard-work Harvest with characters everyday ;^.^)

      But i still want TACO with 4/4 together, don’t matter 1 Quest is 60,000 Meseta.

      Don’t matter 1 Quest is 60,000 Mesetas on TACO, but i still want TACO with 2/4 together.

      We must save Mesetas on Storage, you know want make +20 Rings +35 Weapons and Afftix. Don’t buy too much about cloths and room anymore XD

    1. You mean going to Earth via a game, they emulates the one we actually play but is actually a real universe there wasn’t ridiculous?

      Or how we go into a black hole to walk on a fantasy land version of the memories of the Akashic Record?

  4. Some stuff from magazine interview:
    – EP6 is already in the work since April 2017 (if you feel that EP4 and EP5 theme feels “late to the isekai party” then you now know that each EP is already in the work years before delivered)
    – You need to clear EP5 to access EP6 story
    – For now there’s no plan to do balance adjustment for Fi, Gu and Su
    – Ultra Hard won’t drop *10-11 weapons but we will get excube as a drop
    – Emergency Code in Ultra Hard will reward better stuff including SSA capsule
    – UH will drop new affixes similar to Mark-type
    – No gathering spot in UH
    – They’re looking into auto loot
    – Arks Mission will give a bit more meseta compared to 5xHarukotan spam
    – They plan to buff the gathering bonus rate from meals
    – No plan yet with casino but they’re looking into adjusting the item trade
    – New info about craft system next livestream
    – They’re looking into affixing system
    – The new Expert qualification will use already existing quest and the target player’s skill is higher than now but lower than the holder of Endless Loner
    – *15 will drop on UH and the new EQ
    – No plan for *15 pet yet because there’s still some pet without *14 yet
    – They plan to reduce the amount of weapon series for the new *15 because the new director feels that being a series making it easier to guess the performance of the weapon and that isn’t as exciting as unique weapon
    – Phantom is squishy and only a bit better than Force but a they have a lot of action with i-frame

    1. “because the new director”
      New director?

      “– Phantom is squishy and only a bit better than Force but a they have a lot of action with i-frame”
      Having techs and lots of iframes = squishy, okay, sega…
      Maybe they mean that the def will be low but that’s something easily fixed with units/affixes.

    2. They changed the director for EP6 and he’s a former player. It’s been revealed for a while along with Sakai’s hiatus on making public appearance.

    1. Not to strong.. the player base has dropped considerably since a few years. but the updates don’t stop at least.

    2. Because it’s a good game and in japan games are made for people that play them and not game “journalists” or social media freaks, that don’t.
      Thank god Sega decided to NOT bring this to the west. It was their best decision.

  5. I kinda wonder if Ultra Hard’s 14* drop rate will be higher than XH there are two 14* that I want the most the 14* Exacrimav and Elder pain omega

  6. why does everyone hate klotho client orders i actually like them you can get like 8 mil a week with 3 characters and with daily orders you have to run a bunch of different missions for the same thing i rather do the same thing multiple time honestly considering how short shironia was
