8 thoughts on “PSO2 JP: Maintenance and Patch (10/5/2016)

  1. So we need the title for clearing 1-5 of solo XQ despite the fact that clearing solo XQ 1-5 was already a requirement per character? We just now need a title, which are account based not character.

    Why?!

    1. Exactly. All it takes to clear H&H is Massive Hunter, Auto Mate and a 13* weapon spamming the strongest PA you can use. You can even buy your way in with half dolls.

      For those of us who play in western timezones, multi parties for EQs now take longer to fill especially with the relatively few players online at those times. What the hell was Sega thinking? The existing playerbase has shrunk greatly and now they’re going to discourage new players?

    2. Uh, new players will be spending a fair while at levels where even XQs aren’t relevant in the first place you know… Also us filthy gaijin piggus aren’t exactly something SEGA much considers for obvious reasons.

      That aside, the entry criteria is fundamentally meaningless, and would be even if they demanded H&H clear for the *character*, since there’s nothing keeping the player from derping around with whatever other class combo he might feel inclined to and may well suck donkeys at.

    3. To make clear to everyone.

      If you have the title regardless of level or if you cleared the 1-5 H&H XQ you can access the ‘expert’ blocks. I am currently standing them as a 1/1 with one of my characters who hasn’t touched the solo XQ.

  2. saw some remarks on pso-w about having gotten crappy groups for PD in an “expert” block. like, “doesn’t know anything about i-frames and can’t dodge worth a damn” bad.
    so much for “it’s a filter to keep out the bad players”. : ^)

    1. Ironically, I haven’t had a run that wasn’t better than usual. I’ve been doing PD in 6-8 minutes, maybe only one death in the whole group at most. I’m loving these blocks!
