  1. argh, the scheduling is as I feared. all these magatsu sessions scheduled and only three occur during hours I’m not asleep, and one of them is pushing it. sega’s gotten bad about scheduling eqs during jp morning hours, and with new!magatsu being scheduled-only… what a pain.

    also, I really wish that google calender thing could be made to NOT insistently load past events when one tries to scroll it back to the top of the currently displayed stuff. it’s super annoying trying to do so and getting shown events from two months ago.

  2. well that emergency was easier then expected

    so the new A.I.S skills have:
    super jump skill (no cooldown)
    weak bullet
    heal skill

    did the A.I.S always have the homing missiles and the sword dash when you hold shift?

    1. You lot are really exaggerating, don’t you think? Of course it’s going to be easy with infinite AIS 😛 The second phase is more of an awesome final battle to top things off after you survive through the more difficult first phase; if anything it’s more of a reward than an actual second half of a quest. You guys need to stop being so cynical, anyways!! Just try to enjoy it; it’s a really fun addition to what is already one of the best EQs in the game~~

    2. Yeah. but anyway, more excubes! xD
      and I wish they make “AIS in space” quest in the future, using a combat system like in SDGO space maps.

  3. That new Magatsu fight is very fun and challenging. The time limit is very short, just barely 7 minutes to kill all 3 form of Magatsu and the time is wasted a little during form transitions.

    The AIS receives some nice upgrades to fight this big guy, too, especially weak bullet, spam-able boosted jump and group heal. The rest are the same as before.We all know AIS basics from Mining base defense: Despair, right?

    It’s not like I’m writing the guide here but… I just want to say something at least.. Successfully killing all 3 Magatsu can guarantee higher chance of 10 and 11 stars equipment to drop. Think many Japanese already succeed in killing all of them, us, English players might as well.

    The first 2 form, Shigan and Higan are the same as during the first phase we fight: Shironia Defense, but Higan tends to have more attack patterns and health points than Shigan. Just blow Shigan with Photon particle canons when his belly face is open as it is easier to aim whether Z-aim or manual aim. For Higan, just kill him normally but fast and tag weak bullet whenever possible. Jump to avoid ground shockwave, be mobile at all time and group heal when needed.

    The last form, Sai, the golden Magatsu has impenetrable barrier that requires players to destroy both knee caps and damage both his arms and face to let the platform open which will disable the barrier, allowing the belly area to be attacked.

    Players will need to kill the first two form quickly so they can have more time to deal with the last form, take at least 3 minutes would be fine for the two. (including around 20 seconds of form transitions). If MPA is well-organized (team members or proxy chat) this should be easier than public MPA.

    That’s all I have to say. If you already know this, I apologize for writing too long.

    1. That was some useful info actually, I for one didn’t know Goldilocks was tricky like that. Though in the interests of full disclosure I’ve only fought Newgatsu once and had to try to figure out all the new AIS junk during the fight, and was kind of sleep-deprived at the time to boot. x_x
