Phantasy Star Online 2 Goes ‘Extreme’ With Extreme Quests

Did you know this update is no longer called “Phantasmal Tower”? Oh well!

 

Extreme Quests

Extreme Quests

Extreme Quests are VR simulations intended for advanced players to test their skills under harsh situations. Extreme Quests are available at level 50+ compromising of enemies starting from level 60+. Extreme quests feature a combination of bosses and enemies that won’t normally appear together in other quests.

 

Extreme Quests 2

In order for players to challenge this quest, they’ll need an Extreme Pass. Every 22 hours, you can receive 1 Extreme Pass at the Quest Counter. Extreme Quests are set up in 5 stage increments. Initially 40 stages will be available upon release, but they plan to add more stages in the future.

 

Stage Orders

There are technical conditions to each stage called “Stage Orders”  allowing players to attempt various challenges.  For example, by “defeating the designated enemy within the time limit” makes the next stage slightly easier and raises the number of items you can bring back with you once the quest is cleared.

 

Virtual Items

Items are stored in a “virtual state” and you can retrieve them once the quest is cleared. However, the number of items you can take with you is based upon the quest clear results. Only here can you receive brand new 11 star weapons and units. Even if a rare item did not drop for you, you’ll eventually be able to obtain one if you keep clearing the quests.

 

Limited Time Event

Mr Umblla E Quest

May 15th through June 12th

Multiple Emergency Quests
