It gave the normal amount of Meseta. The issue is that Elder gives ~100k meseta per run when you boost. NA got incredibly easy Elder triggers with rising weapon badge 1s (and elder dropped rb1s himself), which meant that you could just run Normal difficulty Elder over and over to kill him super quick and get a decent amount of money from nothing.

It's weird that the site doesn't mention Luster despite mentioning the other two Scion Classes (granted, the other two appeared first) and the two new pets that debuted alongside Luster yet the campaigns are going to reward you with a 15-Star Gunblade and two 13-Star Gunblades with good augments which clearly means that they're preparing people for Luster. I guess it won't be available in the start of Episode 6 and it'll be available in a later date.

They give you the gunblade alongside the stuff to type change it into whatever weapon you want and almost everyone picks the gunblade to make Atlas EX with because of the lifeleech S4. It's not for Luster prep.

OK, I have to remember not to play this at around 6:30 PM EST, because every time, every goddamn time I lose connection to the server and it says everything's undergoing maintenance when I try to log back in. Especially fun if it happens in the middle of Story Mission boss fights! Does anybody else have this problem, or is it just me?

I get disconnected about once a week, but the only time the game has ever told me it is undergoing maintenance outside of scheduled/emergency maintenance is when someone doing construction cut a fiber line in ly building and killed my internet access during an urgent quest. Every other d/c just lets me log back in and takes me to the gate area.

Holy poo poo the tier missions are giving out insane amounts of stars



also it's all Normal difficulty lol

I'm going to max out my mission pass real quick this month. I wish I could pay SG to reset it or something.

Also the Road to Episode 6 rewards are nice, I want them units. Plenty of time to meet the requirement, and it's not even a UQ so I can just grind it out in one or two sessions if I wanted.

They'll coexist and you move between them from within the same executable. They'll be 'different' but your character moves between the two (with different progression), some items come across like clothes and stuff and some of the things like the new charagen and so on will be backported to PSO2.

Also, digging the darker / more visible experience earned indicator during combat (did they also make the damage indicator darker?). Not that I really pay attention to the number, but it looks cool I suppose.

I couldnít even tell what was going on half the time, just spammed attacks until he died. It was kind of annoying that when I try to mistreaver (braver) in to attack, it always goes towards the body and I canít get a lock on his arms.

Also sucks I paid for my remaining goldnia and saphard less than a week ago and now theyíre giving it out basically.

I understood everything up to about 12* and am guilty of using nemesis TMGs, only because I don't get how the hell 13+ stuff works. Persona blessed me with a profound ejection with meh augments. Should I grind it up to +35? Looks like Zig will give me the next highest tier tmg in exchange for it plus other items, but I dunno how to get any prerequisite items except the void stones.

I think you can buy the other required weapons with Rising Badge 4's (though they come at 30 cap so you'll need a few more to get it to 35 for the Zig transfer).

I have 2,000 RB4s apparently. Never scrolled down far enough in the list to see the ones below the Jutus weapons. In addition, when I logged in earlier to check the badge shop, a notification popped up explaining the system. Must be because it's the first time I've logged in since getting a profound weapon. Also, I think it was Omega DF not Persona, so I apologize if people are going into Persona expecting certain drops from my bad memory.

Decided to take the plunge and get myself an Atlas EX bow so I can kill things better, and found this handy dandy chart which has helped me a lot (sure am glad I kept those wolfcurse and val bows I'm not using)




e. I'm also glad I've been a weird hoarder with gear, finally those Sigmas and other things I grinded for no real reason except "maybe I'll use this on a future character" are coming in handy

I do a lot more damage now, holy poo poo. My XH Persona UQ runs are going a bit smoother, needless to say. Didn't even die once at the last one.

Just throwing out 200k crits like they're nothing, and managed to land my first crit over 500k earlier (560k or 580k). Now to affix some better augments on this thing.

I also got the materials / gunblade from the recommended quest reward (holy poo poo what an easy thing to clear for that kind of bonus), I think I'm going to make that into the assault rifle.

If you have friends who will round robin 4p triggers I believe the 4p version drops 10 or so at a time. They drop off persona 12p but on s1 they're about 5m or so which if everyone buys a trigger to share you make your money back from selling fodder.

yeah it's ultra hard that you kinda want to have a 15* or a 14* with a "-redux" potential on it.

But there will be a lot of options by the time that happens. like those Unique Weapons Badges will be exchangeable for some 15* weapons right away

Does the 12* unit giveaway for doing that limited time quest depend on difficulty level? Does the quality of the resultant units change depending on the difficulty?

I don't really mind doing them all XH and waiting for groups, but poo poo I could solo them quick on VH if that's an option. That last part is a killer, I did an SH run with just one partner and man that part was rough, but we made it - I can't imagine doing XH without a full crew, even with murderbow.

Nope. They have the same augments no matter the difficulty. That said, I think the units you get for doing Ch 5 story are better at +10 than the campaign units at +10 and you can get em on normal so feel free to blow through them with your OP weapon. If you aren't far into the story, they're decent and it costs no meseta to grind the units right now.

Good to know, thanks!

I've been sinking time into playing the story, and... I like it! The way the narrative is delivered threw me off at first, and parts of it are dorky, but by the end of Episode 2, I'm into it. I liked Xion, once I got past the initial "what the gently caress is she talking about" phase. RIP

Also cutting the grind cost to 0 is bonkers too, I can't even imagine how much I saved building my bow.
