  1. Luther for the… 4th time? Could someone enlighten me what people could be looking on Luther so much that they pass the opportunity to massively harness Exp for Dark Blast from the 300% Exp Boost of the EBQ?

    Whats his deal really? 4000FJ? Motav Prophecy? Sock Puppets? Or just running his camo prices to the ground?

    1. While most of us here are at “Expert” already, we still have alot of people that doesn’t have it, that also means alot of people experienced EBQ2 to be hard, and lose most of the time, which encourages Loser being boosted more……

    2. Probably the *14 drops. Most of them is top of the pack for unique *14 weapons. EBQ on the other hand already spammed so much from scheduled EQ for the past weeks so a lot of people already sitting at lv85 all class, heck even max leveled the Double DB.

    3. Well…Luther’s drops are better than EBQ’s:
      – Drops best 14* in their categories;
      – All items are 10*+ .so U get ~30 excubes compared to 80% 9* trash mixed with 3 types of boosters for Zieg upgrades from EBQ;
      – No 14* Maron/Meron spam, as well as less variety of 13* trash drops too [we can’t recycle them anyway].
      On top of that for EBQ it’s best to use boosters from start or at least after 1st attack phase ends to get max rolls for boss enemies from 2 tries.
      As for Luther we can activate them right after xiera says that it’s almost dead [~3%HP left] and then go for another EQ with those 29min booster we got left after Luther (^^)
      And, I agree…he’s easiest of all EQs [tho, sometimes people do some insane trash things even fighting Luther…speaking of non Expert matching rn] 😀

    1. Yes, I have yet to drop a Jutus Wand although my hope will be that 15* Atra will be able to form change like the 14* one so I could use a janky +35 Memeslash.

    2. You know, it’s like drugs, need to increase doses so that it becomes interesting, PSO2 is the same, I already predicted the 14* collection file since last year, always more boost, more everything … they chosen this path and therefore if they want to keep attendance, they have no choice.
      This logic does not give me any desire to replay at pso2, maybe Xh for all fields, it can be funny for a while …

    3. Seriously? !4 star weapons have been out for over 2 years. OH, I get it, you were one of the “lucky” few to get your 14 star after they broke the drop rates and you thought that your 14 star would stay relevant?

      Got my first 14 star back in feb of 2017. Not mad about 15’s because I WASN’T a sucker for broken drop rates.

    4. Good for you m8. But I think more people would agree that 14* were so rare they might as well not exist for the majority of the playerbase while 13* were much easier to access from day one.

  2. The “new” SG scratch preview looks really bad, especially considering that we already had a few items as a part of AC scratch/events.

    1. Im not even sure whats the difference between Alma AC and Alma SG. They already were layered so wtf. Not gonna complain because that means I can hoard SG again until a good scratch comes around.

    1. It will be on the 5th for the Seasonal/Bingo/Lobby/Etc, December 12th for the SG scratch and December 19th for Persona EQ.

  3. “Change the Base Weapon’s to look like the Material Weapon.”

    So, can use old/new weapon as material to customize weapon’s cameo looks? Some old weapon from 12* 13* design are really cool. Can’t wait for that. And RIP Coat Edge cameo price

    1. From the looks of it, yes.
      They used a 1* sword on Atra so that means that it isn’t even reduced to rare drops only, any weapon can.

    2. The downside is probably cannot edit weapon color, but whatever. Can change to cool coat edge sword with cheap method 8* is find too.

    3. Updated: The stream shows change Atra to 1* sword cameo cost need 1m meseta. Fair enough compare buying a rare cameo with 80m+ coat edge cameo

  4. I watched the stream about 13* exchange to 15*, replay few times and pause it and search the material need, and found a shocking info.

    Remember the CF from Omega Elder, Loser, Apprentice and Double EQ ago? 13* exchange to 14* need :
    150 stone, probably from next month Omega Persona EQ
    1 13* 35+ weapon from next month Omega Persona EQ
    4 different 13* 35+ represent each Omega Falz weapon

    14* to 15* is simple, only need the 14* you just exchange with 1 new title stone and 400 X-cube. So good luck standby these Omega weapon

    1. Updated: these exchange is for next month EQ weapon, not exchange for Austere
      From video stream, 15* lightstream Coat Edge Sword stats is 2494

    2. That’s quite stronger than Austere NT Sword 2303 S-ATK
      I think it’s safe to assume Lightrace will lack S-Ability slots.

  5. Something like “Glimmer” or any synonym for a faint light like that could work, although it might not be the right aesthetic to aim for, especially after “astroseismic”

    1. Google Translate says “Light trace”. So it’s not something that races at the speed of light (or whatever), rather it’s something that “follows the path of the light”. If suggestions for a better name are still up, I suggest to just add a 2nd ‘t’ in there: Lighttrace.

    2. When I read “trace” I thought they meant it more in the sense of remnants or ruins (my original suggestion worked off of that, a remnant of light) but you’re right it could be tracks or a path or trail too

      “Stream” might be a bit much? Maybe not. I think they’re closer in meaning but something like ripple or wave doesn’t feel quite right either

  6. I’m confused, where are these items from?Qualifying Detonation Weapon +35
    Qualifying Clawdem Weapon +35
    Qualifying Allure Weapon +35
    Qualifying Chalyra Weapon +35

    1. Those were Released alongside Dark Blasts throughout EP5.
      Detonation is Elder themed
      Clawdem is Loser themed
      etc.
      Personally I hope they’ll add a shop where we can exchange DB EXP for those weapons since once you max level a DB the EXP it obtains is basically useless.

  7. I know that *15 exchange supposed to be hard, but seriously? Ares, Slave, Nemesis and Lumiere? All of them is drop only for god sake. i need at least 2 drops of the same weapon to get +35 60 ele, while none of them ever drop for me. I guesss i’ll just be a casul with 1 lighstream for my main class and *14 for others.

  8. Um, I wrote it on psow ….. but, here’s the ring listed from video (just in case, it kinda buried) …..
    Note : not 100% sure the exact English word for this, feel free to fix it 😡

    – L / JG Counter
    JG Sonic Arrow + JG Heavenly Fall + JG Raising Flag

    – L / Chase W Support
    DS Kamaitachi + TD Air Chase + Knuckle Chase

    – L / Time And Roll
    Front S Roll + High Time Keep

    – L / Defense Tech
    Tech C Parrying + Short Mirage

    – L / Brave Power
    Bullet Bow Homing + Katana C Counter Up

    – L / Kick And Snatch
    DB Snatch + JB Tech Arts SC

  9. The ONLY way I’ll be fine with 15 stars is if they are the final rarity (which I doubt) but like what color can you make your special star ratings after RAINBOWS to indicate muh speshul drops? And those requirements are ridiculous but again I’ll play ball if its the end all be all.

    1. Well PS never went above 15* rarity so this might be the final rarity. which would be weird since the game still has 3 and a half year of support left unless Sega wants to end it after EP6 and work on the next project while keeping PSO2 in life support mode.

  10. 13/14/15 upgrade series name suggestion:
    Series name:
    14* Nebula (direct translation of 星雲)
    15* Locus (translated from 軌跡)
    Also the individual weapon / unit name should end with “xion”, not “tion” or “sion” by following reason:
    These names ends with シオン and the Amphitrite stone looks similar with the planet Xion and the description mentions “infinite knowledge”.

  11. Those Austere-NT requirements are ridiculous.
    I guess I stick to my Atra until something similarly sensible to acquire crops up.

  12. Sega posted ☆15 weapon stat + pot (some doesn’t have exact %) on official site if people want to check it out ……
