PSO2 Crafting System (January)

Weapon Customize

Adding Extra Tidbits of Information During the Day

Weapon Extend (Updated)

  • Makes your low ranking weapons or units more powerful. Works on 1 ~ 10★ items only. 
  • An example shown in the trailer has a fully grinded Vita Sword at 1017 S-ATK, which normally has 376 S-ATK.
  • Weapon extensions require payments through meseta, PA Fragments, and certain ingredients. Don’t worry, the crafting process will always succeed or greatly succeed.
  • ADD: As evidenced in the video, there are also different kinds of PA Fragments. (S-ATK) (R-ATK) and (T-ATK)
  • Completing the process can change an item’s stats or equipping conditions, even allowing it to be used by multiple classes.
  • As an example in the video, when a sword ‘greatly succeeded’ extension, it allowed both the Hunter and Force classes to use it.

 

Foie Custom

Technic Customization

  • The Technic Customization system creates both positive and negative effects.
  • A positive effect, for example, may get you 20 ~ 40% more power with some increased speed.
  • However, as a detriment, it can increase the PP consumption values by +3 ~ +10.
  • You can use booster items to improve these values.
  • You’ll see a special effect when charging a custom technic.

Craft Recipes

  • You can extend your weapons and customize your technics using craft recipes.
  • There are several different kinds of craft recipes each with different effects.
  • ADD: The Weapon Crafting Recipes seem to have (Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced) versions.
  • ADD: For example a recipe could say could say “Beginner Striking Weapon Lv.#” or “Intermediate Striking Weapon Lv.#”
  • ADD: Tech recipes on the other hand have a [Prefix] [Tech] [Value] nomenclature.
  • ADD: For example, there’s the Blazing Foie Recipe1, its effects are described in the Technic Customization section
  • ADD: Wide Area Na Megid Recipe1 increases the range but reduces its power.
  • ADD: There’s also Concentrating Gi Foie Recipe1 which reduces the charging times but worsens the status afflicting rate.
  • ADD: There’s also Flashing Ra Grants, Flashing Gi Grants, Efficient Grants, Concentrating Zan, Concentrating Zonde. It is unknown at this time as to what their effects are.

 

 

Item Desynthesis

 Item Desynthesis

  • There are certain ingredients needed for the crafting process.
  • You can acquire these ingredients by breaking down 7★ or higher weapons/units, and LV11+ Disks.
  • There are no failures with this process, you can only ‘succeed’ or ‘greatly succeed.
  • For example, breaking down a weapon nets you Aironia, which is required for some low level crafting recipes.
  • However, if you hit the jackpot, you can receive even more Aironia and gain a Rubiard required for higher level recipes.

 

Craft Slots

Craft Lines

  • There are a set of 9 Crafting Slots you can choose from. These are known as “Craft Lines.”
  • By default the first line is available for free.
  • The second and third line needs to be unlocked.
  • The fourth through sixth require premium.
  • The seventh through ninth are expansion slots that can be purchased with AC.
  • After you craft an item, the item gets bounded to its owner. The crafting slot will display a cooldown timer which locks you out of that slot for the time being.
  • However, you can purchase an item to speed up the cooldown timer. These are known as “Lilipariums” which you can acquire from the Mining Base Defense quest or the AC Shop.
  • ADD: There’s also different types of Lilipariums. There’s the “Liliparium (Minimum)” and “Liliparium Full Charge,” surely you can make an educated guess as to how you’ll obtain them. 

 

 Craft Ex Builder

(NEW) Room Items that Assist with Crafting

  • You can place various room items to assist you.
  • The Crafting Console opens up the Crafting Menu. You can also open these menus from the My Room Terminal.
  • The Craft Ex Builder, when placed in your room, reduces weapon extension’s cool-times. There’s also a Craft Tech Builder too.
  • The Crafting Board is just a menu to accept requests from other players.

Craft Request

(NEW) Crafting Commissions

  • You can commission other players to craft an item for you. This is especially useful if you want an item crafted using a recipe you don’t have.
  • You can search for other crafters and their available recipes through the Visiphone.
  • The person requesting the commission has to pay the materials, the meseta, and supply the weapon they wish to have crafted.
  • On the other side, the crafter just has to complete the process which helps to increase their crafting levels.
