  1. has anyone else tried the solo EQ yet

    it's impossible … 20 minutes ……….

    I don't have problem living through the fight but there's no way I can kill that fast….. I guess my affixes are mediocre and I don't have rings on my units, but …..

    1. I tried it this morning and it really does seem easy, but that time limit. The Double moved around so much for me, it wasted too much of the time, and I ended up failing on the last segment of the actual PD fight.

      The new weapon potentials make it incredibly hard to die, but without the proper atk affixes, those weapons are sh*t-tier.

      I'm going to keep at it, though. I want those units and JB from Zieg. I'll use every stack of badges I have, if necessary.

    2. Ignore the bottom derailed mess, had a bad day and this guy didn't help it, Idk what his problem was though so I'm not speaking for him.

      You run JBs right. Make use of Strike gust on legs, preferably uncrafted so you dont go into the sky, I believe once you max out gear with strike gust etc and follow up with vinto you should break double's legs fairly quickly. As for Double tongues moment gale before doing anything so that zanverse is casted without swapping jet boot element, after that follow up with strike gust for more gear if needed and vinto, Repeat as necessary.

      Dodge red cars as if your life depended on it, as it probably does. Jump twice and stay in the air, whether with shift actions of just normal attacks, then get back to business.

      PD shouldn't be too hard, uncharged megiverse to heal fyi so you don't change jet boot element. Then moment gale(zanverse) -> Strike gust/Vinto for PD parts, massive hunter might help if you have that as bo/hu but if you run bo/fi there's a ring for it so don't worry much. When you have broken 3 parts of PD he shows some drones for you to kill as you would know. I personally prefer to hold off on triggering this until he is at phase 2 or nearly at phase 2 so I can get the core exposure at the start of phase 2 but that is up to you. Moment gale should kill bits pretty quick. Follow same strat as double tongue for face.

      Phase3: Bits can be a priority or you can deal damage to his hand on the stage, it's up to you; gonna cut this quick and say try to stay at the very back or very front if you are frail, this will save you being hit for quite a bit by the double fist slam.

      Persona 1v1: Avoid the laser light show and overend similar move. These can be a deadly combo / one shot, otherwise do the same for the other boss cores but maybe prioritise Gran wave and strike gust for chasing.

      Final phase: Easy enough, blow up eye, kill core. Congrats you won.

    3. reading this since i chase double's tongue better with JB than DB.
      so what i'm lacking is vinto (haven't buy it yet, in case it drops from random run in the quest that drops)

      *taking notes*

    4. Vinto drops from UQ naberius, but with how easy level 17 pas are to get now (20 excube at excube exchange) you'd be better of getting it from there.

      Vinto is a focused kick that uses all currently gained gear, with highest damage at full gear.

    5. Could be a poor class combo too. Whacha running for it? It doesn't help some class combos are way better to be using in party too.

      Point is, your gear and player skill could be fine but I feel like the S rank might be made for Fi/Hus. Only class that has so little issue in terms of how the battlr plays out, though Fo/te isn't too far behind if only for their adaptability combined with well timed Bartantsions. Rippu Ra though.

    6. Fo/Te is easily the best class for this EQ. People such as Ponthi and Miranduil getting 7 mins or less on it as Fo/Te.

      Every class shouldn't have too big an issue getting an S rank with the exception of Techer.

      As for Ranger: This might help you out, found it a bit earlier.

    7. I laugh every time people pretend Fo/Te is the easiest. Maybe if you have godly gear, but uh…

      I hope you like dying in one hit or two hits where you're being hit without any ability to recovery to avoid the second.

      So no. And even if you have the gear, it's still Fi/Hu. If you don't know this, you don't know the game enough.

    8. Or you know…. learn to dodge. So I laugh at you thinking it's even remotely hard, you literally stand under double, throw talis with fast throw and ragrants. Very hard isn't it, or you know, affix some hp, don't run herr derr 3x PP craft saiki and run some real units like austere arm/leg and a 12* leg? I seriously hope you don't think everyone plays such a glass cannon fo, because I don't think YOU know the game enough.

      And yes I know the game enough I've got over 10k hours logged and can solo all the eqs in this game.

      Also Hi I run Fi/Hu main. And can get 7:31 without any real issues or effort, working on under 7 minutes.

      Any other smart ass comments, or as you this hostile to everyone on this website?

    9. "Also I said best class, not easiest in terms of skill you muppet."

      Also, way to call the kettle black there, buck-o. Maybe you should calm down before you reply? Also, don't talk to me about skill when you play baby mode.

    10. Also sorry to spam this but…

      We weren't talking about what was the quickest, which is still Fi/Hu btw, but what was the easiest to go through. People don't give a crap about max speed here :U let alone spending years to afford the affixes to get HP and PP to live in a Fi/Hu world as anything not Hu sub. They just want to clear the quest, and that's all we wanna HELP people do.

      So, try focusing on that instead?

      Also sorry to AKANIS that I got way off topic with the help of T here :U Was trying to help but god forbid bumped doesn't have problems.

    11. I'm sorry, maybe you should look at your own name and then go by what you preach. Your words are very easily taken as hostility.

      'So no. And even if you have the gear, it’s still Fi/Hu. If you don’t know this, you don’t know the game enough.'

      This is definitely implying hostility, you're doubting someones ability to play of a fact you pulled out of your ass, which also seems to be the same place you're storing your head.

      I play every class lol, this whole game is easy mode.

      Dude I can't with you, you are so pathetic, maybe YOU should step out from your basement you could do with the fresh air, maybe check out reality too, it's pretty cool…

      And I was trying to help the guy too, then you got super off topic and decided to criticise my help whilst also saying the S rank goal of minutes was made for fi/hu, damn right you should be apologising to the poor guy after derailing a conversation so much?

      So yeah, go back on topic, I'm done with this conversation and this deluded lunatic who seems to think that no class other than fi/hu is viable for this EQ.

    12. I'd like to apologise for anything I said that might have been taken as an insult. Had a pretty shitty day, argued with a pretty good friend, the like, amongst a mountain of stress and such. So uh sorry I suppose.

    13. I am BO/HU with +35 dual blade from xie shop and I switched potential…. like some other said I can't kill double fast enough, he move around too much & his atk are very dmging and hard to avoid like the stupid cars ….. I can go to the air with heavenly kite but then no way to atk weak point …. I guess maybe photon blades…..

      I need to reset my kestrel rampage … it drain gear gauge & cost more PP is no good, I need my photon blades ( ;∀;) I'm also not using PBF good enough…. I got kind of close last night I broke his eye on giant man phase 2 times, I thought that would take him to 1v1 phase which is always ez for me but I ran out of time after the second break because double take me 11 minutes also it counts the time you are on the ship in the middle between double & falz!! OMG! I was mad when I realized it

      so you say FI/HU is better huh…… I got all class at 75 and got ace of hu and ace of bo so thats my pref …. maybe I try fi/hu but my only good wpns on fi/hu are 13* NT meteor cudgel and dagger of serafy neither of them are all that good I think also my player skill isn't that great on FI I can't clear heaven to hell with it ( ;∀;)

    14. Didn't try yet even if the EQ happened twice in twi hours after the patch, and as the two times were complete fast with 12 players I can imagine not everyone wants to do it yet…

      Erf, I tried the "4 ppl quest" but not that and I ran into a bad PT… I've been alone in the last part at Amduscia after some minutes… We were four at the beginning… On SH… Wtf?

  2. Definitely not said enough… thanks for the people who get these patch notes up asap. That and thanks for making them easy to follow. It's surprising how bad other sites make it out and confuse everyone with how they handle their setences and structures.

  3. Hell, I cleared on my first try. Almost fail, though (around 19:30 minutes) with Br/Hu. I doubt I can clear it another try.

  4. btw for any who are wondering you CAN do the regular 12 man XH EQ and then go and try the solo (*'ω'*) you got less tries that way but at least you get your cubes w

  5. I have 1 question about second potential of xie 2017 neo japanese weapons (+20%dmg and -40% dmg taken) you gain those bonuses only at solo PD?

    1. Yes only at Solo PD.
      If you really want to get some union stuff / not have too much trouble with that EQ, grinding your favorite weapon to +31 (60 element minimum via xie purchase) and running the quest a few times, then this can be a good option.

  6. Lot's of people seem to be having issues with solo PD, Selphea compiled a few video's into a blog of every class getting an S rank in it, including techer with wand whacking.

    Might be worth a watch if you are struggling to complete it and want to learn a few strats from videos.

    And Ponthi just got a 6:13 run as Fo/Te via picture on twitter. I'm sure a video is in the works knowing that guy.

  7. I'm just gonna ignore any more dramu :U I should learn that an idiot never learns by now .w.; But hopefully this will give people ideas?

    They point out a lot of logic and thought, albeit it briefly, in how it goes down. Seeing these really makes me wanna skip out on Fi/Hu and just try Hu/Fi sword like that >w> Alas, I still suck at sword.

  8. The art directors at Sega seem to have a serious problem, they always make their characters look Caucasian, it's like the Japanese don't realize they are east Asian.

    1. Yeah it's pretty common for Japan to insert features they like from westerners (eyes, hair, facial structure, giant ass boobs) into all of their media and games. I think PSO2 actually made a lot of their story characters look pretty Japanese in features honestly aside from like Xeno (Cloud Strife syndrome) dewman Theodore and the actual Americans from episode 4.

    2. Which, ironically, would be a tad questionable given that the Fleet population aren't even Earthlings to begin with… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      Then again not like the eg. cast of Star Wars wasn't suspiciously Occidental-looking for no reason readily apparent in the lore, conversely. 😛

  9. I cannot find the person to recycle the costumes to. I have tried to exchange costumes that I won from scratch offs but there is no one who will take it. Is the recycle shop gone? What is the name of the merchant and is there a picture of the location? I am trying to get a color change coupon.
    Is there a color change coupon in the AC shop? My English patch will not work for the shop so I am not sure which item to buy that is the color outer wear item. A picture or the name of the item and price would help a lot.

    1. The NPC is not gone, check the Recycle NPC on your left side at the lowest section of the Shop Area (The section below Franka NPC / Franka's Cafe, there are 5 NPCs. The Recycle NPC is the one 2nd from the right). Sadly I do not have a screenshot of the item, but it is the 6th (exchange with 1x Rappy Suit) and 7th item (exchange with 14x AC items) from the top, either options will give you 1 color change pass with its corresponding items. Alternatively, if you can't find the Recycle NPC, access your main menu (press esc), go to the AC Menu tab and select Recycle Shop. It allows you to recycle your items remotely from the NPC.

      Also if you are referring to a color change coupon in the AC shop, no there is no such pass in the shop: You have to exchange for it via the recycling shop.

    2. It should be the person next to the badge shop behind the counter, both of which are next to the NetCafe NPC underneath Franka's Cafe's entrance. Also the English Patch SHOULD work, just that some items (in the game) don't update retroactively as they normally should, such as AC purchases. But if you just scroll around gingerly, then come back, the informational window off to the side SHOULD display both English names and descriptions, at least in most cases.
