New Photon Art and Technics Arriving Next Week For PSO2

~ June 27th, 2018 ~

Phantasy Star Online 2 is introducing a new PA for Wands, and three new technics. These can be unlocked by clearing Marlu’s Client Order. This task requires defeating five hundred Lv41+ Demons, and clearing Enchanted Forest Exploration on VH+ with an A clear rank or higher!

Wand Photon Art

Swing away and bash your foes with the new [Heavy Hammer] PA for Wands! Charge it (up to two levels) for more powerful smacks, or rush your character forward by using it without charging. The non-charged portion also provides several seconds of flinch and launch resistance.

 

Simple Compound Techs

Re Fomelgia (Dark & Fire)

Hold down the button and dart through the field with a spear of flames in hand, piercing all enemies in your path. Release the button to fire a powerful, wide-range blast.

 

Re Zandia (Wind & Lightning)

Suck enemies into a tornado laced with lightning and unleash a finishing bolt capable of stunning survivors. You can even extend the tornado’s duration through button mashing.

 

Re Barantsia (Ice & Light)

Sprout frigid wings and fly, delivering a flurry of light projectiles while you hold down the button.

 

What are Simple Compound Technics

Simple Compound Technics are techs with multiple attributes. Similar to regular technics, they activate through the consumption of PP. These technics can also be set to your weapon palette for added convenience.

 

★14 Pets and Rare Colors

New ★14 rarity Pet Eggs will be available for Wanda, Torim, and Cery! This new rarity allows pets to cap out at level 130. In addition, they can acquire ★14-limited personalities. These have the effect of increasing the rare drop rate, among other things.

Players may stumble across eggs with unusual colors. Using this egg during the rarity evolution process will alter your pet’s color scheme.

 

Dark Blast Display Settings

View your character within a translucent shell of their Dark Blast form with the new Aura Display feature. This effect is merely cosmetic, and doesn’t have any impact on the Dark Blast’s functionality. This feature will not be available for the PS Vita version of the game.

 

You can also alter how other players’ blasts appear on your screen in the game options.

 

Limited Quest: Arkuma Land

Thanks to advancements in technology, the ARKS have developed a VR Space for the public to enjoy! Enter [Sky Park Arkuma Land] and shoot for a high score by defeating enemies.

 

The higher the score, the higher the rare drop rate! To assist you with this goal are events called “Trial Orders.” Clear them to boost your points acquisition rate.

 

Dress up in certain outfits to experience a [Costume Bonus] PSE effect, slightly increasing the rare drop and EXP rate.

 

A Special New Boss

Arkuma Land introduces a new boss known as the “Apostolo Dragon.” Unlike the Chrome Dragon, it absorbs power from Darkers and ARKS alike! If too much power is absorbed, it will enter a [Limit Break] phase and unleash quick, powerful attacks.

 

Slay the dragon for the ★14 rare drop Zirenheit-NT (ズィレンハイト-NT)

    1. It seems so. It’ll probably work like the current cpmpound techs too if you have like 6 of the techs equipped.

    2. Yeah, true. I began to wonder only due fact that it’s press and hold, therefore instantaneous dual elemental orb mashing.

    3. Guess Ragrants Type-0 and Freeze/Poison Ignition aren’t the only reasons to get the Uncharged Tech bonus skill anymore.

    1. Homura will not support S-Clsss Abilities based on when they scroll past them on the video. Only Shien will support them.

    1. It’s technically a new “technic”. While you’re at it why don’t call Re Barantsia a recycled Parallel Slider type-0 and Re Zandia a recycled Hurricane Sender?
