PSO2 JP: Maintenance and Patch (01/23/2019)

Arks Live Correction

Sega has posted a slight correction with the skill [Photon Stream] mentioned in the previous livestream. The skill works basically the same, but the effects are actually two separate skills.

  • [Photon Stream]: Increases Power based on Max PP, skill level 5 reaches the Max Power at 200 PP.
  • [Critical Stream]: Increases Critical Rate based on Max PP and increases Critical Damage, skill level 5 reaches the Max Critical Rate at 300 PP.
    ※The Critical Damage wasn't clarified if it increases based on Max PP


The Chocolate Way returns in this week's update!
