Post-Maintenance Updates (4/25/2014)

  • Added PSO2es Campaigns
  • Added PSO2es Non-Patched Notes.
  • Currently Researching: Crafting Guide.

Future Plans

  • PSO2 Director Nakamura was quoted hinting at a new crafting system category other than [Weapon Extension] and [Technic Customizations]. This new feature is probably the one datamined a while back. The new crafting System is scheduled to appear around the Phantasy Star Festa Updates.

Extra Things

  • So far the class balance adjustments posted prior to this maintenance only lists the ranger, striking Lv.16 PAs, and techer tree improvements. Any class adjustments besides those three have yet to be announced.  After the April 23rd update, they'll judge which contents are target for a nerf.

 Overseas Developments

  • Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao's PSO2 is planned to launch on April 25th.
  • In a few months, the PSO2 SEA version is scheduled to launch.
  • Sakai states you can't play with them since they're on different servers with their own scheduling of updates.
