  1. Nice, been wanting to upgrade my 3rd Atlas into an EX. Also got a couple of Invade-NTs from solo PD which made me (slightly) interested in Austere-NT.

    1. Must say things as they are, once Ph maxed, you get bored, have to play something else and go back to pso2 when there will be new content, unless you are one of those mental degenerates who wants everything even if this involves replaying content already 100,000 times.

  2. 3 weeks without new contents other than a very short story quest and a new class that's easily maxed out on the first day. Way to kill the hype for ep6.

    1. Well, it's always like that for every new patch, look at the Ep 5's start, it was the same.
      Seasonal EQ (Wild Easter here), new class, one chapter, the first boss came later.
      So I don't know what's new here, it was always like this.
      And I don't know, maybe you should look for the announces of PSO2 Station?
      Next week the shields are coming, and the UH comes the 15 or the 22may.
      …MAYBE SEGA want us to stuff for the UH? I don't know…

    2. Mission system alone made the game 2 times better, fresh and exciting to play.
      This is the best new episode launch since ep3.
      Whiners gotta whine.

    3. I'm not saying the episode is bad, there's just no new contents to do compared to previous episode. EP2-4 got new free field and rares to grind right of the bat while EP5 got Buster quest. I'm hoping for at least UH this week because of the usual release schedule (2 weeks in between each update) but i guess it's one more week of almost nothing to do other than weeklies, which the important ones can be done within 1 hour for all my chars.
