July 30th Tidbits

The following is based on info collected through social media from people who attended the Phantasy Star Festa in Osaka. Due to this, we are unable to personally verify information. Some information may be incorrect, incomplete, or missing context.

The information below might be slightly incorrect, incomplete, or missing context.


Cross Block Matching

  • They plan to fix some bugs with Cross Block Matching. They want to get those in before Buster Quests are implemented.

Deus Esca Trigger

  • They plan to release a Deus Esca trigger in the future.

Nightmare Vegas

  • This boss is voiced by Daichi Kanbara.

Next Class

  • A new class will be released after Episode 5 that's also going to be an advanced class. This advanced class might release for Episode 6?

Existing Classes

  • They plan to add skills and change some of the behavior of existing classes.
  • They're going to buff techer! However, they haven't decided what they plan to do.

Scratch Exchange Ticket

  • They're planning a scratch exchange ticket for SG Scratch.

Mini Rappy Suit

  • They think they might do color variations of the mini rappy suit. Maybe?

Bathing Suit/Swimwear Qualification

  • They apparently made the decision not to include the Fundoshi as swimwear. The qualification isn't about showing off skin, but rather, whether an article of clothing is actually considered swimwear. Since the Fundoshi is considered underwear, it will not qualify for Beach Wars.


  • At present, they do not have plans to nerf Heroes. (They're still going to correct balance issues however, like that unlimited PP thing.)

Late August Update

  • Luther, Harriet, and Alisa layered wear
  • New Advance Quest: Shironia
  • New Event: ARKS Boost Rally (This is already referenced in the game)

ARKS Boost Rally

  • It's similar to Gurhal Boost Road from PSU.
  • This will target Advance Quests: Volcano, Coast, & Shironia.
  • You'll experience a boost based on the difficulty cleared for the targeted quests.
  • This event will drop a 13 star sword with a potential that's beneficial to Hero.
  • (I'm not sure if they talked about the sword, but people were able to deduce that it's a sword from the Episode 5 Start Guide. If this is correct, then the sword is called "Altercray" or "Altacray." It has a potential that increases power by x% and increases power for a limited time when Heroes evade an enemy's attack.)

50 thoughts to “PSO2 Station #10 Recap”

    1. This is actually an improvement. Instead of forcing players to log in 1 hour before an event and then force them again to stay absolutely entirely afk, without even allowing them to go to My Room or Team Room so as to not lose their spot in the Expert Block, now you can login like 15seconds before an event, select to play ony with other Expert players, and voila! Same result as the current functionality of Expert Blocks.

    2. In addition you get to play with a larger variety of expert players, which I think is better as compared to current system where you only play with players within the same block. Even within Expert Blocks, everybody just wants to get into B23 desperately because the clear time / S rank rates are just that slightly higher / faster than the blocks below it. For better or for worse, the performance of all expert MPAs may be somewhat leveraged by shuffling all expert players around… but I still think it's a pretty neat function.

    3. Yea, but maybe to check to play with expert you will need the title for it to unlock

    4. I'm not surprise that this happen, given the current situation, I believe that SEGA want to spread the succession rate of EQ to all channel especially for new players since the highest succession rate of EQ and LQ, especially Deus ESCA, are in Expert Block. why? the top difficulty of most EQ and even the LQ currently is set on XH 75/75+ instead of old XH of 70+, combine with CF that mostly need you to do XH, fresh player need to grind through there level to 75/75 using any equipment they can get. that also means the most player that reach 75/75 outside expert block don't have the equipment of those in experts block.

    1. I'd honestly just wait for the stats on the Chip first before I start dumping Medals on it…

  1. Wait, omnibus quests will be released sequentially? What about episode 5? Will it be released fully completed, or chapter by chapter again?

    1. Of course.
      In fact, second part of the first Ep5 chapter will arrive in august.

  2. There never were expert blocks (not really). The condition to get in was to easy, even when it was announced. PSO2 should do a better job of grouping players.

    1. People who aren't satisfied with expert block population have their own block. Its called soloplay block.

  3. Looks like hero' skills have to learn lots to become powerful. Either go learn for single weapon, dual weapon or triple weapon. Definity not enough SP to learn all.

    1. I'd love a collaboration with the Grandia games so much .__. (In fact that's one of the Collabs I've always dreamt of… )

  4. Alisa Landale… And Lutz…

    … Don't tell me I'm dreaming, tell me they'll reach the Lobby and share a Cola and a Partner Card. Please, pretty please. ^^ (Well, I'd prefer the PC than a Cola but well)

    1. I wonder how many people will have parties with Alisa and two out of Quna, Matoi, Karen Erra and RINA if she does have a partner card, just to have two eras of heroines stood by them.

    1. I'd put a "Like" to your message if I could. 😀

      Seriously, I don't know what's going on in the head of Mizuno Akikazu with her but wow. :/ (and I like his chara-design of Annette)


    When I read "Rappy Balloon Lobby Action available as a reward for logging in" I gasped with excitement and then read "from a netcafe for 30 hours."" v.v There are so many exclusive(?) LAs coming out.. wah.

    I also mistakenly thought at first that that picture of Io for the Camera Appeal LA was showing that they added an option to wink with your right eye instead of just the left. And I thought "ABOUT TIME" but I guess that's too much to ask for.. lol ;;

  6. Is there a particular reason why the videos are from and not youtube?
    Just wondering. In case like, they can't be on youtube cuz they'd be taken down or something..??

    1. SEGA's been going on a copyright strike frenzy recently and have been taking down reposts of their PSO2 STATION! videos and streams.

    2. That will happen as soon as official videos will appear. There is a delay in publish, they probably want to keep an element of exclusivity to all live events.

  7. I will theorize on the next class.
    -Assassin class with weapons like twin dagger, assault rifles/bullet bow (probably going to be like sniper style) and use of jet boosts to help with a combo style attack from affar or have Jet boots be completely different like they did TMG for Hero
    -Berserker class with weapons likes Knuckels or Double Saber, Launchers, and either rod/ wand or hell even Jet Boots.

    1. never thought about those, I was thinking more of a new weapon class or an advanced class which focuses on Knuckles + Jet boots…… EP6 so far away

  8. "Hero class decide not going nerf" so damage would be same.

    But "infinite pp" going adjust, so tmg normal attack infinite reload pp going nerf.

    1. iirc it meant by "unlimited PP" is using EPPR Ring, which make your normal attack gain more PP, which make Hero TMG normal Attack gain PP as well. I already think this could happen with Hero since Hero TMG suppose to use PP on normal attack, which make TMG normal attack shoot as long as it takes

    2. I bet they're just going to make the ring to "Hr not applicable" or something like on Attack advance ring

    3. Using the "EPPR" ring made TMG's "normal attack" use 0pp.

      This is being removed because Hero's TMG is not considered a normal attack like regular classes. Things like "Attack Advance Ring" don't currently work with either 3 of Hero's weapons, and neither should the EPPR.

    4. It will not change much, everything has become easy with this class, you get bored …

    5. EPPR ring is outside of Hero's own ability, and they probably weren't able to test this part before, which they didn't expect and don't to be in the game

  9. so since the only content (that isn't going to become unplayable the second it's CFs die) on the horizon is story stuff, one hopes they'll actually churn it out faster as a result of their "lol VN style!" effort-cut with various exposition sequences. I suppose that a chapter per month is too much to ask, though. give me something to do besides money COs and waiting for fashion updates, why don't you.

    since SHAQs are basically a graveyard due to the entry cost and the cost of getting them to XH levels combined with the crappy drop rates for capsules that necessitate exitbursting, making one for white territory this long after it became irrelevant (and having it drop the stones you can get without cost by doing black territory free field ANYWAY) isn't exactly "adding content" or "adding longlasting content".

    aping a generic medieval setting theoretically gives them room for multiple areas with various themes… it's a shame they're wasting it on "here have a gimmick raid" already. at least ep 4 waited until half of it's story went through to start giving us areas that they could totally do stuff with and then not doing anything with them. (moonbase, mama ship in the moon, EG headquarters, mu/yggdrasil) then again, vegas was shit and they cut it's hamstring by building it around pushing ridingquests. because hamazaki and the other guy they had on ep4 have it in their heads that people want gimmicks, which by all impressions I've gotten since ep4 hit, is not the case.
