They're mostly the same as the fan translations, except some slight pronunciation changes. The names are in katakana, so its a pretty straight romanization, iirc.

Like Echo, Zeno, Lisa, Matoi/other major characters, etc their names are the same, Gettemhart's name changed to Gettemhult, and Melphonsina changed to Melphonseana. I'm not sure on the counter NPCs, they may change if the names don't fit.

Dark Falz (Double) changed to Dark Falz Gemini, which makes sense kinda as they're twins. I don't know what they'll do for (Loser) though.

Afin is still Afin

Claris Claes got renamed to Klariskrays

Tea got renamed to Tia


If it is in the official subtitles on the PSO2 Episode Oracles anime then it probably will be in game, as the names are sourced from Sega NA's material. Bigger thing is Darkers were renamed to Falzspawn, which is an entirely different name, but as "Darker" was kinda just a made up term anyways, it's not super egregious from my point of view. Dunno why they left Photoners called that, if they changed the name of the creatures that are related to Dark Falz.

That was what I was looking for. Good.

All the other changes seem reasonable enough. I'm not particularly attached to Darker so whatever.

AweStriker posted:

As a Hunter, you want a Melee Attack mag. Feed it melee weapons for the most part, but when its Dex bar gets too high switch to 4* furniture (you don’t want Dex levels).

The ARKS Badges are from the invite-a-friend campaign. The white ones will gradually leave your inventory as you level and you’ll have none left by 50. The blue ones I think you can trade somewhere...

Personally, I'd suggest using Monomates for lowering Dex. Monomates raise S-Def but melee weapons lower that. Some furniture raises R-ATK (ranged damage) which requires another loop.

It's a quest chain basically. The hard parts are the Wind and Rain urgent quest and killing a few Frog Rappies.

For Bouncer, you can either build Dex or S-Atk. S-Atk is generally I think considered more optimal because you will have Hunter sub, but it's really up to if you want flexibility for the other Dex Mag hybrids.

For the Frog Rappy items you can just send out your Auxiliary to search for them.

Splash Attack posted:

well i finished episode 1 and while i get the gist of it, it sure feels like i'm missing a lot of the context. the whole talk about rampaging dragons and inhumane laboratory tests don't really have an impact because i have no idea where the information is coming from. i guess it made sense when it was all on the matterboard and i guess you poked around places that looked like a lab to trigger these scenes, but now it just feels very disjointed. i also guess that we're supposed to feel sad for quna and haddred but i just had a lot of questions. like, if they apparently had a sibling like relationship, how did that even work? what was going on with the dragon in the end and why was the only option to put him down like old yeller?

tbh i'm enjoying the game, but now that all the story quests are all unlocked for me, i'm trying to blast through them and it gets really tedious.

episode 2 is a lot more interesting though. i'm still confused about some parts, but i hadn't expected my auxiliary guy to appear in the story quests. it makes me wish i'd been more serious about creating him though because i thought it was funny if he looked like link and i just threw him in the male vocaloid costume, and so when he showed up in a cutscene looking like a lost cosplayer, i absolutely lost it.

Quna and Haddred were raised together by Void, the ARKs research and science division. That's why they think of themselves as siblings. Haddred is as smart as all of the other mineral dragons we've met, he just doesn't figure out their telepathy until the end.

Haddred underwent an experiment that was meant for Quna. It went wrong and he went nuts, killing the scientists and destroying the facility. Now he's smashing through space and time, killing falspawn but slowly losing control and attacking ARKs as well. The only people who could possibly help Haddred are Void so that's a non-starter.

I like the PSO2 story. Episode 1 is pretty rough but there's a lot of payoff in Episode 2 and 3.

With swapping classes, could you theoretically do a bunch of high xp orders & daily missions, then swap to different class and cash them in?

Yes but there is some scaling when it comes to rewards. If you swap to a much lower level class the exp rewards will go down.

Ugh, this game does not feel easy to get into at first.

I often play mage/wizard types in MMO games and thought I'd roll a force on the #2 ship. It might just be now but force felt REALLY weak to me, like weaker than hunter by a huge amount. I could be doing something wrong, but as my hunter I was hitting for ~300 or so with a normal attack and 350-400 on a perfect attack, but when I used a fully charged up Foie it did ~400 or so. Not bad but it fires SO SLOWLY and uses PP so I have to get up in people's faces to attack and recharge my PP. IDK. Ilgrants didn't seem much better.

I was gonna change class to ranger or hunter for a bit but I guess I only started with Force equipment, so trying to do either of them would be a bad idea (I guess I could be a gunblade ranger but I'd so prefer an assault rifle). I guess I stick with Force for a while until I have the meseta to buy weapons for other classes?

The class trainers (Oza, Marlu, Risa, Azanami, and the Bouncer duo) have quests to test weapons. When you accept those quests, they give you that weapon.

Yeah, you have to cut grass in the forest section (including one patch off the path in the timed forest section) and knock over a snow pile in the tundra section. These will all spawn enemies to give you points.

You don't get the bonus fight any more though. Huey used to fight you if you got 1000/1000.

Can I get some advice on Braver play? I'm going hybrid but I'm poo poo at melee (my main is a Su/Fi and Fo/Te). What PAs do people tend to prefer? Should I focus on JAs when I'm using normal attacks or getting PP as quick as I can? How worried should I be about parrying?

Focus on Just Attacks. They're important in general.

Parrying is great. It blocks damage and inflicts damage. With the right investment in the skill tree, it will activate Katana Gauge which provides a massive damage increase. It'll also do much more damage. That's one of the strong points of Bravers, you can Parry between your attacks and keep your damage up. It's not too important initially but as you hit Super Hard it'll become more and more essential.

As for PAs...Thriving Bellflower is nice for mobs, Morning Mistreaver is nice for map movement, and there's Flash of the Lotus which you can spam to do surprisingly solid DPS. Bellflower and Lotus also charge your Katana gauge. Mistreaver is bad at charging gauge.

A few questions:
I'm 58/47 on Fi/Hu but I kinda want to play Gunner or Ranger. I can't really decide on which.

Is there good ways to switch to a new class / ways I can take advantage of having a much higher level main?

I assume both Ra and Gu use an R-Atk/RNG Mag? Looks like feeding one of those is ranged weapons, then dimates and 4 star furniture to offset the other gains?

Well, you probably already have photon arts for the new class learned and a nice weapon stored. I don't think there's anything besides using one of the higher level classes as a subclass.

Is this not in NA? I hit 75 on Fighter and got the class boost for the title, but there wasn't anything else.

To that ennd, what should I do for gear at 75? I have what I think is a decent-ish weapon "Deo Felinaught +30" - Twinsaber with 778 power, but I imagine my units are a bit lacking (still using sub/weapon barriers)

A summoner guide I'm reading says that you need two classes at 75 to get Stella Walls. I don't have two classes at 75 so I cannot confirm but I'm guessing these are the units you're talking about.
