13 thoughts on “PSO2 JP: Maintenance and Patch (7/22/2015)

  1. *SHAQs at +10 or higher advance risk will have boosted drop rates for advance capsules.

    well I guess that’s all well and good if you have enough caps to either force it up to that risk level or spam it to raise it. if you don’t… well, that’s zero help yet again, sega.

    1. You can even get capsules from casino and you can buy them with meseta, dont see whats the problem. Just do advance quest with people, alot capsules drop this way.

  2. Is the server still down I get a “Maintenance in progress” message on both ships? If it is up and it’s just not working for me how do I fix this?

    1. Its now July 24 and im still getting the message that both ships are still under maintenance too.

    2. Well by now it should be obvious to yall that the rest of us are having no problem. You need to uninstall the patches, do a file check, possibly even re-install the game if that doesn’t work – but it probably will. We have all been back online since Wednesday around 3:30am EDT.

  3. How am i able to obtain compound techs from claris claes? I reached level 70 on my force, yet she doesn’t have a request option when i talk to her. What has changed in the latest update regarding her unlock conditions?

    1. You still need to have Episode 3 on your Matter Board. Just select it at the Matter Board screen.
      Looking at the swiki, I noticed they changed the unlocking conditions of her second client order.
