23 thoughts on “PSO2 JP: Maintenance and Patch (11/19/2014)

    1. error 12002 is a game guard error, if i remmber correctly. ususlaly happens to ppl using tweaker with item path and /or proxy. also a random np1002, or np1003 may trigger in some cutscnese or movies, justa glitch and randomly happens, for no appearnt reason x3

  1. I notice the updates say “EXP Sub-Class Level: 55”

    In case you all don’t know, that level also occurs to all non-skill stats your subclass provides. Once it’s above Lv55, its level doesn’t give more stats unless you pay SP for it.

  2. Curious, the pictures of the new weapons listed in the patch notes I’m guessing are all 13* weapons? (I’m mainly asking because I’m interested in learning more about that new katana…)

    1. that`s a common knowledge of zondeel
      and here i am thinking there is some other effect that i don`t know

      thx for the reply

  3. It looks like Verizon was killed by Sega, can’t connect anymore and the japanese website isn’t loading anymore. This is some bullshit, it looks like Sega flat out just wants to block all outside ip’s and forget about it.

    1. >november >still thinking sega themselves are blocking things
      sega isn’t blocking shit except for SEA. yahoo japan’s use of the /25 prefix is pissing off backbone ISPs because it’s considered a security risk. around mid-october, level3 (who owns most of the backbone lines in NA) flat out gave up trying to parse PSO2’s existance. the only people who could route to pso2 had their ISPs routing through backbone servers belonging to the companies attached to yahoo japan’s backbone provider. whenever anybody changes their routing to something that would route through level3 or any other backbone that would actually have to look for pso2’s IPs, you lose access. things attached to yahoo japan’s backbone provider can find the game simply because NTT (I believe it is) can’t fail to look up something within their own system.

      tl;dr: sega isn’t blocking you, your ISP doesn’t want to play with sega’s ISP.

    2. dont you think that it was SEGA’s plan all along to let yahoo.jp do that?
      considering it was only done after the DDoS?
      not to mention that the problem is not existing in japan, even if they are not using the same ISP backbone as yahoo.

  4. >Whenever someone’s subclass levels up, it will only display it from Party Members.
    Uhhh, like, seriously? Now all the leechers that being held back by shame and the fear of getting blacklisted will be overjoyed then bring their lv.10 subclass to every EQ.

    1. Do his one time COs, and you’ll get enough to obtain 6 different units. It’s all fairly simple, Just keep extending stuff to lv 1, and only go higher when needed. For Strike weapons, you will end up having to do a 9* to lv 6, the rest end at the 7* 3 times to any lv CO.

    2. Im doing all those currently but only got crappy tickets that only trade for grinders synths and pretty much the lowest part of the list
