At least there's enough QOL stuff that will pretty much sky rocket you back to where you were. Minus any cosmetic stuff you had.

Sword is a little slow by nature and excels at wailing on one or a couple large semi-mobile targets. It does have some gap closers like Guilty Break and non-charge skills like Twister Strike and Sonic Arrow. My recommendation though would be to try the Wire Lances, they are extremely good for slaughtering groups of small jumpy enemies (Twist Driver and Wild Cyclone are my preferred spam skills). You have a lot of tools at your disposal for every kind of fight.

The real answer is to wait for Sacrifice Bite 0 for extra reach. Also building focus shortens charge PAs to the point that they're near instant. Sonic arrow helps build focus ultra quick and having the hunter focus ring really helps in keeping that focus. You could also just wait for the enemy to attack you, perfect guard them and beat them senseless. That's what I do at least.

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.

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.

Heads up ya'll, we're experiencing an emergency code judgement as the leaders of Team Blue (the main Alliance Nol Vacancy) and Team Red (the overflow Vacant Nol), and myself (Red team officer whose doing the heavy lifting) are culling out players who appear to be 'inactive'. So if you're logging on and wondering why you're no longer in an alliance, then you failed to filled out the monthly activity survey that was posted on the discord weeks back. (It was pinned and brought up numerous times so you've got no excuse).

That's not to say you can't come back, you just gotta let us know. (And maybe be more 'on-the-ball next time the monthly survey comes around.)

Does it not show inactivity in the members list? I can only assume I've been kicked because this is the first mention of any survey I have seen despite capping AP this past week and grouping up with people for UQs. Haven't been on Discord but have been fairly active in this thread.

E: still there. Phew.

I did what I could to mention it in-game as much as I could, because I can't edit the MOTD. (Unless you're on Team Blue, in which case, that's their problem.)

I had a SH PD run that went on for that long, and we ended up failing the DPS check which on one hand that sucks, but the other, how often do I actually get to see what happens when you gently caress up that bad.

The cool part of PSO2 is that even during a high-end content raid, you can get away with doing your own thing and pretend that other 11 players are just npcs*. (That's what I tend to do when I'm solo)

*Some 'npcs' say very weird things, it is a-okay to ignore them.

Also, don't expect the story to be good or even comprehendable in any way.

Yeah cause the first half of ARR was a masterpiece in storytelling.

But they kinda have a point, story mode is plagued with being more or less a big clipshow stripped out of the old way of experiencing the story; which was loving painful to do. It's at its worst in episode 1 and early parts of episode 2 but gets better as you get to later episodes. Also the story ain't that hard to follow. (Episode 1 = Arks member acts like a bad man and turns into an even badder man)

However, you do not have to engage with the story at all as it doesn't lock you out of the other content. The only things that lock you out of content is your character's level and a few Client Orders from the NPC Cofy (lady next to the quest counter in the lobby).

OK, I must've missed how to craft and cook. I've been gathering some ingredients and asked around at the cafe, and you're supposed to be able to cook there and on the expedition ship?

There's some Client Orders from the young lady standing next to the center of the cafe that will unlock both food making and ring making on the gateway ship. Most foods are meant to help get other ingredients, namely minerals and rocks for rings, and a select few that give stat boost like jerky.

Okay maybe I'm dumb, it's level 30. Maybe I leveled it farther than I thought, and didn't realize it had evolved? I swear it wasn't this far up yet when I logged off last night.



I don't recall it saying anything about it evolving, I figured it'd be a bigger deal?

I'd be mindful what you're feeding that mag. (which you can fix later so don't sweat it for now) I'm assuming you want to max our DEX cause you're playing Bouncer and/or Braver. If so, I'd recommend feeding it PA/Tech disks which give pure DEX and won't add levels in stats that you don't want.

I'd probably just hop on the discord and ask questions in the questions channel whenever you need help with something. That said, apparently someone on the discord went in solo and managed to get to level 70 without any help, so idk it's possible.

Also, this game's dub is the most frustrating goddamn thing. All these talented performers struggling against the fact that they're being directed by a farting chimpanzee.

Wait till you get to episode 4 where some takes sounded like they were just reading them for the first time.

Wasn’t that at the end of episode 3? I remember having to do it on normal because levels were locked to 80 (unless I am thinking of another defense quest).

The one Kirby is thinking of is the one that takes place on the MB2 map and aint too hard albeit tedious. The one you're thinking of, and the one I believe is the one Zeether's friend is actually talking about is the Mb4 map, but it's just a fight with apprentice.

Speaking of Alliances...

Attention: All Vacant Nol Members

Aces and I are in the process of merging alliances, however we ain't gonna bother with the in-game means cause uhh, gently caress it. So here's what gonna happen:

-I'm gonna spend the remaining ap on Tri-boosters this weekend. Be sure to check the alliance counter to claim them, you'll receive an email about it when I make the purchase.

-In the meantime, I need you to get in touch with me (Maddie (Combat Bubster) on the discord server) (Either through discord DMs or PMs here) to let me get a headcount of how many of us on red team are moving over and so I can just pass the list to Aces so it'll be easier to send invites.

When you send your DM/PM, I want your Playeridname and/or character name.

You have until this Sunday @ 11:59pm CDT to get this done
