  1. 900 Sage Crests for 1 Amphitrite Stone?
    I don't think Lightstream is good anymore, because Liberate outclass it next year, stats already has big difference, and already have nice potential for novel weapon (+14% damage and +20% critical rate). Collecting 900 crest taking at least half of year to get it

    Altas Ex sword: 2411, S1,2,3,4
    Lightstream sword: 2494, S1,2,3
    Chaval sword: 2542, S1
    Liberate sword: 2716, S4,5

    1. Raw stat isn't everything, people already tested liberate sword in damage calculator online and it is a bit above atlas ex. Ofc this could change if S5 can offer a fairly large dps increaser (for example, jupiter tullus' lightning bolt) but as of right now lightstream still win since damage SSA play quite a large part in damage calculation ;).

    2. It was, otherwise why people still try making a bunch of over 200+ atk 3 unit with lots pp hp stats? Why not using new SSA unit and still using lightstream unit for more pp stats?

      Let's not forget that PA Complex doesn't effect on JA, class skill, and even SSA % damage. It's based on stats attack you have

      Even though it's current strongest, it's matter of time to be outdated. It's been 1 years old since EX and Lightstream come out. And Persona EQ gonna end, the 150 stone and Celestial weapon won't be easy to get next year

    3. Liberate are probably like Atra from ep5, a mid EP weapon series. It won't straight up broken but still gonna beat or at least on par with end game weapon from previous EP.

      @TK
      If you want people to believe you at least provide a working link for said calculation. Does it use S4 Raising Pursuit? That's roughly 8% dps increase over vampiric.

    4. @ATKH:
      Unit SSA: People are currently sticking with LS over shuvelle because the difference in stats isnt big enough to reaffix a unit, additionally ssa on the units are more QoL than damage based and to add to that are pretty rare, it not being unheard of for people to go 1000 runs of Ship UQ and not see the SSA they want. This is why a majority have not swapped over yet. Using 'No-one is doing it on units' to justify weapon SSA not being all that beneficial is not a good point.

      Complex PA: I'll give you this one, it's a good point to make and will definitly influence people's decisions to make a liberate, especially with morecomplex pa in the future, even if it is just for minmaxing complex PA damage then swapping back to an LS.

      On the topic of Lightstream being outdated soon: I don't doubt it, but OP saying LS is outright not good anymore is factually incorrect due to on average it outputting the most still.

      @HIKOMR
      See above statement.

      In regards to raising pursuit: Yeah its a good SSA, but a large majority of people will not have / be willing to spend over 200mil on this in it's current state. You also got to remember raising pursuit's additional damage is single target and time gated. No doubt it'll be great onn say a downed boss but in the way of mobbing it is not the deciding factor on liberate vs lightstream.

      Additionally here is the assumed damage output when compared to other things, as you asked. Do take it with a pinch of salt ofc, as the pot is simply assumed to be the same as novel and we do not have S5 data yet (which… again was kinda my point we don't know liberates maximum output yet just assumed without s5 being super meaningful):

      https://twitter.com/qwervcxzblog/status/1191713229325492224

      there were a couple more bits of data with similar results, none however overtook Chaval or Lightstream with the current information we have.
      Hopefully I made my point a bit clearer now.

      TLDR: Lightstream likely to be best in stock for general usage, with some class exceptions and also very determinant on what S5 are like.

    5. Honestly I will agree that Liberate look like the more consistant weapon, especially for classes like br which can use mysterious strike and still have 100% crit rate when subbed with PH, or something that can make great use of raising pursuit such as Hu sword (IGP burst makes the 250k cap easy and Complex PA). Or a class where the crit rate can also be seen as an average damage % upgrade such as Fi (or ph I guess?). So at the very least they will be very competitive weapons with LS, whether they're a bit weaker or more on par for some classes. I'll still be making mine after maint regardless because I'm sure at least 1 S5 will be ridiculously useful, personally I'm hoping for a meteor cudgel style S5. Also @HIKOMR it did not look like raising pursuit was included in the calc, so that'd likely need testing after maint again, it'd be a generally good idea to just consider atlas' damage with raising pursuit as a case of 'close enough' if you want comparison. It'd also be important to see the stat scaling on some weapons, as stuff such as TD has a lower stat scaling than say sword and bow, which allows weapons with more % based multipliers (IE SSA, pot etc) to creep up on them easier.

    6. Ok, now we know all about liberate seems this is my final stand on it and its very positive.
      At worst it is basically an Atlas Ex upgrade as not all weapons got a good S5. However some weapons such as Katana and Knuckle and DB got very VERY good S5s this is more than enough to make them equal to or better than LS.

  2. Etoile is E-Toilet, a awesome gold toilet class

    Next time on story, maybe Shiva will weak is Toilet XD

    We play E-Toilet class XD

  3. it was no surprise for me about pso2 power creeping gears, though all that effort to get the new weapon(recently released BS) was for nothing, is making me sick. well, i do still enjoy the cosmetics though. so, yeah.

    1. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Lightstream is still a fantastic weapon series with ever-lasting uses via it's PP regenerative potential. I'd say liberate is more of a equal or side-grade for most people. I like the idea of competitive endgame stuff dependant on class rather than a single best weapon that everyone unanimously agrees upon.

    1. Once you have the Client Order from Koffie, Kill [Snow Banther] with Double Saber | [Dragon Ex] with Dual Blades | [Big Vardha] with Wand.

      Once you turn in that CO you'll be able to level up to Lv90
