Character Catalogue

We recently published a new series of pages detailing certain NPCs in the game. More will be added in the future, with the focus being on characters that include Client Orders and/or Partner Cards.

Ship 4 Character Creation Limit

Due to overcrowding on Ship 4 during peak hours, the creation of new characters on the ship will be temporarily disabled. This limit on new characters is expected to last for about two weeks.

The Friend Invitation system for Ship 4 will also be unavailable during this period. Similar limits could be applied to other ships in the future. Sega apologizes for the inconvenience and recommends the creation of characters on the less congested Ship 2.

※Deletion of all of your characters on Ship 4 while the limit is in place will result in the inability to play on the ship.

  1. Hey, this Character Catalogue is really cool.
    I love Nagisa and didn’t even noticed it was Mizuki Nana who voices her… So I learned something today. Thanks for that xD

    Good luck for completing the rest.

    Anyway, as long as I’m here, let’s avoid double-posting… I have a question about Nova. There was “Product Codes” in the package but what am I supposed to do with that? Can it be still used two years after the first release anyway?

    1. Heh. Tweaker don’t even tell there’s a patch here. Seems like I’m not alone in that case… I’ll wait some more hour (’cause New Method is nice for some, andit’s trash for others. What to choose, honestly)

    2. Really? I waited a little and it asked to update naturally some minutes after my previous answer. No problem here, if we except the number of files he checked was 2k under what the _bin contains… What the. x)

    1. Just go to the front of the ship fire your laser. While that is in CD attack everything with Sword.

    2. Applying the freeze grenade to the main-battery turrets also seems like a worthwhile exercise.

    3. … Damn. I’ll have to find a moment to try catch it then (The miracle of different timezones that make you play during these moments without any Pre-Scheduled).

      Thanks.

  2. …what? They’re planning to fill up ship 2? This is either sneaky and clever by SEGA or just a coincidence.

    1. I don’t think it’s “Fill up”, just Ship 2 isn’t as populated, It never reaches Full, barely congested during peak hours, so they recommend making characters there if you don’t want to play on a full ship.

  3. Does Yamato really not have any units? I mean, I expected at least an Arm or Leg unit, since the weapons leave rear-like rigging on the back.

    This is the first large boss to not have units based on the boss. Unless they plan to have a part 2 Yamato EQ after the first akin to Magatsu Sai with a different drop pool.

  4. Does anyone know why I cant access the reverse side of the bingo? Do i need to complete the front side first or something?
