I feel like they should have left the big sonic statue up.

Said the ARKs rally is over. Whats the best way to level now that the Amplified VHAQ are gone? Is there particular VHAQs that people gravitate towards?

<----------------------------


most of us are kinda taking a break right now, but the 8th anniversary event next month coupled with some of us on na getting our characters there to a spot where we can kinda leave them be for a while will probably mean that break will be coming to a close soonish.

there was a jp devstream yesterday morning too, so I guess here's a rundown since I'm here: http://www.bumped.org/psublog/pso2-...n-plus-7-recap/

Early July update:

AC Scratch: 2019 Item Design Winners Side-C
Anniversary Limited Quest Part 1: [Special Training: Episode 6]
A quest with 2 paths that need to be handled at the same time; The quest will do what it can to try to scale each path to the number of players taking it.
Drops weapons with S1-S5 abilities on them, as well as some parfaits for summoners.
Also drops a 4-player trigger version of the quest.
Anniversary event quests will drop a new 15★ weapon series; as well as *Coated - series camos for Etoile weapons.

Late July update:

AC Scratch: "Ritual Bride", features Margie's 6-5 outfit, more variants of priest/nun/bridal outfits, and a bunch of episode 5 related stuff I can only assume were cosmetics they originally intended to release through buster quests lmao
12★ Units will become tradable
Anniversary Limited Quest Part 2: [Enemy Battleship Infiltration: Enhancer]
Fight your way through 3 randomly-selected areas and take down the Grav Execour at the end.
Drops 13★ units with S6-S8 abilities on them, as well as a 4-player quest trigger
The Dark Falz [Persona] Emergency Quest, Trigger Quest, and Rematch Trigger will have Ultra Hard difficulty added!
Lightstream Xion units will be upgradable to a 13★ version
The final phase of the [Persona] Rematch Trigger on ultra hard will be different...

Is the Discord in the OP the one for US and JP players both? I'm on NA Ship 3 since I was going to play with some RL friends but they never ended up joining. I guess I'll transfer to ship 2 when those open up, but it'd be nice to play with this community, especially with the situation with the forums, now.

I dunno, caricatures suck.

(Yes I know it comes from living in a monoculture with no appreciable interactions with people who are not like you, still sucks)

I'm really wavering on whether I'm amused or not with this.

Yeah it's used for both. Even if you aren't on Ship 2 you should come on anyway. You can watch us bicker about stuff.

I appreciate the effort to create an even just for NA. Plus, I assume that if you convert your glory medals to rising 2 medals you can easily get that 12 star unit set.

I also like that we can get rare triggers in the casino now.

It's honestly kinda silly how many USA badges you can get with little effort. 3 abandoned mine potatoes, 20 red meat, 50 falspawn and 50 robot kills (any difficulty) gets you 20 a day. Repeat on any alts you have and say hello to cramming out a pile of Ray units/weapons for all your bad alts.

That's not getting into the casino stuff too. Let's just say if you got any brissa pieces kicking around still it's probably a good time to get rid of them. It was better to get rid of them before magatsu but hooh boy.

The brissa set in total gives 200 HP, 20 PP, and 70 all attack stats. Ray gives 150 HP, 27 PP, and 75 all attack stats, while also having slightly higher defense stats. I'd say it's an upgrade, but not one that's immediately necessary. Later on the ability to add ring skills to 12* rarity units will be added, which will invalidate most 11* sets, but for now that mechanic is disabled for some reason.

Yeah I'd say if you already have a decent brissa affix'd set I wouldn't dump it as it's still fine but once you can put left rings on 12* units it's no longer a question.

Ray weapons are different. For ranger at least I prefer yas7k from unique badges but I plan on getting a ray launcher since I'm still using a cannon revolsio and cannon weapon bonus is pretty bad. I also plan on still using my brissa set I affix'd already until the ring thing gets put in. I'll probably affix Ray units when pso2 day rolls around again and I can put arks fever on it. I think ep4 souls are also dropping and maybe doom break from the new monthly UQ which helps.

Ray weapons are a considerable downgrade from nemesis. They're only useful for their special ability factor, astral soul.

Nemesis/slave from what I've been told by jp players will probably last you until episode 5. You'll want both eventually but whether you prefer nemesis or slave depends on which effect you want more. For classes that channel their damage slave shield is very nice.

Without outright buying the weapon off the AH I'd say the odds of getting a weapon you actually want are extremely low.

In case anyone else was wondering, all 3 of the boss enemies for "A Stress Free Celebration" show up in the new UQ.

Also, they fixed the typo with "Godspeed operative" but left in "anticiscpate"

just watch it for a second

Have +30'd a few 13* weapons now and have been following this guide: http://www.bumped.org/psublog/pso2-...3-star-weapons/

One thing I've noticed is that it seems more cost effective to just straight up buy 12* weapons that are already at +13/+26/+30 and keep the 10* weapons I would have used and turn them in at the Swap Shop instead. Am I missing anything? And if not, what should I be doing with all these 12* weapons from UQs?

I used them to grind weapons but if you're fine buying them outright you can turn 3 in at the swap shop for a lambda grinder.

I hadnít seen that guide, so I ended up taking the longer route of buying up 12* of the same weapon type and mashing them together. 10* became photon spheres or ex cubes as needed.

Yeah, the guide streamlines the requirements a lot. You can buy the required 12*'s and get to +30 for a couple of million mesata. That seems about the same as what you'd pay doing it yourself, but it takes less time and it frees up the 10*'s (and I guess 12*'s based on the message above) you would have used as fodder for swaps and depending on the value you place on those might actually net out to you paying less.

Getting to 13* +35 for me has been:

Enhance with 12* +26
Unlock Potential
Enhance with 12* +30
Enhance with 12* +13
Unlock Potential
Enhance with 12* +26
Enhance with 12* +26
Unlock Potential
Now you're at +30. Get to +35 with your duplicate 13*'s.

If nobody answers in a couple hours I'll let you know. There are very few people iirc banned from the discord so there will be a good reason I'm sure.
