~ July 8th Update ~
Gal Gryphon Limited Quest
We’ve now reached part 2 of the Third Anniversary Quest, where players will face the fearsome Gal Gryphon from Phantasy Star Online Episode 2!
With its swift movements and powerful attacks, the Gal Gryphon leaps into the air, spreading its wings to charge at the players below. Watch out for its electrifying attacks and giant tornadoes!
Prior to facing the Gal Gryphon, players must run through a new Limited Quest taking place on Corrupted Naberius. All sorts of creatures, including the mystical Anga Fundarge, could appear along the way. Players as low as level 8 can start this quest on normal difficulty! So even those that are new to the game can see what Corrupted Naberius has to offer.
But there’s one other thing… Since this Limited Quest is not an Ultimate Quest, players utilizing the [Planet Naberius UL] timed abilities will see their effects null and void. In addition, all timed abilities will be ineffective within the Gal Gryphon’s boss arena.
A Profound Invasion
In this new pre-scheduled Emergency Quest, players will have to defeat Dark Falz Elder and Loser!
This quest does not appear at random, and will only appear at the times listed in the Emergency Quest calendar. What new ★13 weapons will await players in this limited-time Emergency Quest?
This quest can only be cleared once per ship. This even applies to your other characters on the SAME ship.
Both this and the limited quest will qualify for the Maximum Attack event. Their schedules are as follows:
- Interlocking Web Panel Event: June 8th ~ July 22nd
- Gal Gryphon Limited Quest: July 8th ~ August 5th
- Dark Falz Elder / Loser EQ: July 8th ~ August 5th
