PSPo2: Use Technics in 3 Steps! Finish Chain Combos! Mirage Blast LV10

We had a bit of a confusion regarding 3 step Technics, but now we can follow up on some more details. The concept is a little bit tricky to follow so we'll have a follow up explanation later on.

  • What is "3 Step Technics"
    • Release 3 Technics consecutively.
    • You may only use this feature with the wand or the rod.
    • Unfortunately, Madoogs can not use this feature!
    • You can release Foie > Foie > Foie in quick succession. (read 3 step casting time)
    • You can also alternate between different technics.
  • How to Alternate 3 step Technics
    • Technics can be alternated using the square and triangle buttons
    • (ex. □Foie > △ Barta > □Foie)
    • However, you must use the front palette or back palette to alternate technics.
    • (ex. Front□Foie > Front△ Diga > Front□Foie) = SUCCESS!
    • (ex. Back□Diga > Back△ Foie > Back□Diga) = SUCCESS!
    • (ex. Front□Foie > Back△ Diga > Front□Foie) = UNACCEPTABLE!
  • 3 Step Technic Casting Time
    • The Casting time will be shorter based on which attack you are on.
    • The first attack will have a casting time of 100%
    • The second attack will have a casting time of 70%
    • The third attack will have a casting time of 50%
  • Technics with range (AREA OF EFFECT)
    • A Technic with area of effect will hit a boss in multiple areas.
    • For example: Shougai PSO says how Rafoie would hit in multiple areas on a boss in PSO.
  • Chain Combo (A quick Review)
    • When you do a regular attack your chain combo tallies up.
    • The higher the combo the stronger the Photon Art Damage
  • Chain Combo FINISH
    • A "chain combo finish" means you have broken the combo.
    • This is where the damage of the Photon Art is increased…
  • Triggering A Chain Combo Finish
    • Pressing the Triangle button will automatically finish your chain combo
    • Photon Arts will break your chain combo!
    • Charge Shots will break your chain combo!
    • Technics (assigned to the Triangle button) will also break your chain combo!
  • Mirage Blast
    • Mirage Blast is similar to an SUV, you equip it like a unit.
    • Once your Blast Guage is full you will unleash the mystical creature!
    • Mirage Blast can be equipped at Level 10!
  • Nano Blast
    • Nanoblast tattoo starts at Level 10!
  • SUV
    • SUV can be equipped at Level 10!
  • Shortcut Order
    • Shortcut order allows you to specify what your NPC should focus on,
    • This feature uses chat shortcuts to command the NPCs.
    • You can assign 7 shortcut orders!

Don't worry, I was too! Here's how Chain Combos work. All normal attacks will contribute to the chain combo. Since a normal attack is the default square button on PSP, you can spam square all you want to add to the combo. While doing so you won't use up any PP and everything will be great! A photon art receives higher damage when you break the combo, this is known as a "Chain Combo Finish".

Unlike Phantasy Star Zero, anyone can break the chain combo, even Techers. The button that is assigned to breaking a chain combo is the default triangle button. With this knowledge, you should strategically use the triangle button, not only for PP sake, but for your teammates.

If you want an enemy to die faster, you (if your soloing) or your team mates must rack up chains with the square button. Then unleash the final blow by pressing triangle which triggers your Photon Arts. Make sure your team is well versed on effectively using this feature.
