PSO2es Maintenance Contents

  • AC Scratch update

PSUBlog Update

  • After May 1st the site broke down and stopped accepting comments on posts and in the shoutbox. On May 5th, we reset the site and moved it to a new database with increased capacity. Comments and spam from the previous database took up a lot of space, and could take some time to restore due to limitations imposed by the hosting provider. Alternatively, we could just cut our losses and start fresh.

If you’d like to set up your party as if you were playing in the ARKS Grand Prix, you can follow this list of guidelines.

  • Human = Fighter + Hunter
  • Cast = Gunner + Ranger
  • Newman = Techer + Force
  • Dewman = Braver + Hunter

Near the bottom is a list of PAs or Technics you can use.

Special and Latent Abilities cannot be used on weapons.

However you can acquire these units from the EXCube Shop which has certain abilities attached:

  • Rear / Shouldot c
  • Arm / Apdot c
  • Leg / Legadot c

[/wptab]

[wptab name=’Known Issues’]

Known Issues

  • There’s currently a bug where under certain circumstances, the enemy does not display in the [Ebon-Winged Vanguard] and [Paragon of Deceit: Loser] Emergency Quests.

Photon Blast Adjustments

Under certain conditions, a player may be able to pull off a series of photon blasts in a short amount of time. This not only puts a burden on the game servers, but it also considerably affects the game’s balancing. Therefore they have decided to nerf certain aspects of the photon blast in the following ways:

  • The blast gauge will no longer refill when an enemy is damaged from attacks made by the photon blast.
  • There will also be a cap on the amount added to the gauge when an enemy is damaged surpassing its max HP.

These changes will be made sometime in the future.

8 thoughts to “PSO2 JP: Maintenance and Patch (5/7/2014)”

  1. Dat PC and VITA patch Size difference o_o!

    I think that SEGA not able to solving the Promotional Video in-game download Problem that can hogging PC resource yet, so they including the promotional video with the patch.

  2. I think it’s better to cut the losses and start fresh. Spam surely isn’t welcome. I think that we can really do well without them.

  3. Cut those losses. Why use space on old comments when you can used said space for new ones and new content?

    Besides, has anyone actually went that far back in the archives in recent memory to just look at the comments?

  4. Start fresh, humans always start fresh when they wake up. We must follow the natural life order.

    And, I’m looking forward to this update. The new EQ looks interesting.

  5. so the new pyroxene weapons are 11*s that cost 100stone…
    wonder if they’re good enough to warrant that.

    kinda sad to realize the gunslash will probably get ignored a lot because of how many people only regard gunslash as a PP regen tool. maybe if they added a class that focuses on gunslash, or skills for it. otherwise it’s weakness as the “standard issued sidearm” weapon type is just gonna keep killing interest…

  6. @-Z- Not like you can use the stones for anything else. It’s a nice addition for those who don’t like to spam AQs and prefer the easy ride in emergencies.

  7. easy ride is presently a laughable remark with regard to [loser], from the commentary I’ve been seeing so far. 😛
