Summoner Class

  • To be implemented Spring 2022 or Later
  • Summoners will use Takts as their main weapon.
  • Pets obtained in PSO2 cannot be used as Summoner abilities in NGS. However, since many are fond of their pets, they are currently considering a system to allow those pets to be utilized in the new NGS Summoner in some way. Pet growth stats, as well as their candy box status, will not be carried over.

Gunslash

  • Gunslashes will not be available for the 6 initial classes, nor the 3 upcoming classes of Braver, Bouncer, and Summoner.
  • Instead, there will be a new class after Summoner that will utilize the Gunslash as its main weapon.
  • I wonder what this new class will be called? 🤔

    1. the bat luminmech probably uses the skeleton of the morfos from og pso. a reskin is more akin to taking the model of lets say a rock bear changing the textures and calling it a new enemy were as these models probably use the skeleton but are heavily altered.

    1. dude. let people play how they want. if they wanna use the simplified thing they can. it dosent make them any better or any worse then you. if its more accesible that means more players more players means more support for the game more support for the game the more content. neat things we can get in the future.

    2. Lots of content on most games do not deserve to be done manually. Even without auto, some enterprising ones will auto anyways.

      Like how some of my steam games have skill levelling which involve repeated use of skills. Why waste time on repetitive boring task when you can just run a script off it?

  1. I can run benchmark at 60~110 fps, never dipping lower. Nice.
    I just hope Arks-layer will keep supporting JP version like they were doing with PSO2.
    But even if they won't I'm absolutely not migrating to NA server.

  2. Hope we can choose English text in the JP version, in the Global beta we could just set everything to Japanese as well, if both clients are gonna have the same content it'd make sense to let us choose our language.

  3. Does my original PSO2 character need to have a PSO2:NGS face in order to play with that character on PSO2:NGS? Or can I just leave my character unmodified to play PSO2:NGS?

    1. Can be left completely unmodified, do note that using a Legacy PSO2 costume or layered however will change you to a default costume in NGS for cutscenes.

      Faces however I do not think are affected by this at all.

    2. " Legacy PSO2 costume or layered however will change you to a default costume in NGS for cutscenes."

      That is a lie, it's the other way around. You can't use NGS stuff for base PSO2 cutscenes.

    3. Apparently the info for Legacy PSO2 outfits in NGS cutscenes will change to default NGS costumes was a mistranslation on Global's part, no wonder why I can't find it anywhere anymore. Apologies for the

      I wouldn't be surprised if they do this or any times when finger animation WOULD be present it wouldn't animate the fingers, probably a bit too early to tell of this. But since there technically ISN'T a confirmation of this since they goofed up I can't really say for certain.

    4. Apologies for the incorrect info that I provided.*

      Not sure what happened to my comment there, must've accidentally deleted that part (probably overrode it with the space between the paragraphs) somewhere along the way when I was writing the comment.

  4. Finger Lobby Actions in the SG scratch: Did they mention whether or not getting one of these also unlocks the original lobby action it's supposed to be combined with?

    Not sure how they're going to work otherwise. New NGS player gets one = can't use anyway because there's no way to get the emote and they cost 300M – 1 billion in PSO2.

    (Also that Dash Hover action in the AC bonus is a real low blow to Casts, come on. Free movement option in PSO2 now a bonus? Or is that just for the Photon Dash?)

    1. As evident from Hero Pose+ & Phantom Pose+, You can only use the "+" variant and won't have access to the original version if you don't have it in the first place.

    2. Oh, okay. That's actually a really nice deal then. SG just got a lot more valuable.

    3. I think it's only for the photon dash. IIRC there's still the default "hover" option for normal running motion.

  5. the model of the eldi scythe is diffrent but its using the same skeleton like in most phantasy star games. the wolves are an example of this, its not a reskin. the new critters the otterica use zeros models for the seal enemies in that game

    1. It's not a simple reskin, more like recycled skeleton and motion. If this kind of thing bother you i recommend to not play any 3D online game or a long standing franchise like FF/Phantasy Star.

    2. It's called reusing skeletons, something literally every game on the planet that is in 3D does.

    3. the box duvals ultimate corrupted dragon is litteraly using the transmizer skeleton, if it was a reskin it would just be a transmizer with a dragon texture over it.

    4. Monster Hunter also recycles a few skeletons for some of its monsters too. Here's some to consider:

      Tigrex, Nargacuga, Barioth use a rather similar "Flying Wyvern" skeleton

      Arzuros, Lagombi, and Volvidon all use the "Fanged Beast" skeleton

      There's plenty of other examples like Kushala Daora, Teostra, Alatreon, but I think the above gives enough of a point of knowing the skeleton of the monster can somewhat give an idea of some of their moveset nuances (especially in the case of the Fanged Beast" monsters).

  6. This is all cool and all, I'm not against recycling skeletons and a few other things, but SGEA BRUH, why, oh PLEASE WHY are you bringing SU to NGS? Justice for BO!!!!

    1. I mean Bouncer's coming like a whole half a year or more into NGS well before Summoner. It'll probably have the usual initial hype of people wanting to try out the new shiny class then it'll more than likely stabilize down after that.

      By how the post is worded on the announcement I'm almost inclined to believe that Summoner might be overhauled in NGS. Especially since pet progress isn't carried over so it might be possible they'll just be used as maybe cosmetic skins of what ever they'll consider as the replacement for pets in NGS.

    2. My unreal fantasy world version:
      You equip wand in designated slot (like ring, but it still visibly hangs on your ass or something), and pets assist regular weapon attacks/do their own stuff automatically, depending on the main/sub class and pet type.

  7. Wanted to add some rather small details to some of the skills just for extra transparency.

    1. Fighter Skip Arts:
    It appears you trigger this one by not inputting any movement when activating the PA, similar to Etoile Double Saber's Stay Arts from Legacy PSO2. They seem to have accidentally omitted this detail when talking about the skills.

    2. Wand Lovers:
    Wand Normal Attacks also provide guard frames, I think this is what they mean by on the stream when they said that you can "Reflect enemy attacks".
