Pretty great. You have to go through a bunch of chapters without a Skell, but that just helps give you a sense of scale when you're running around in it and everything is so much smaller than it was on foot. It gets even more so when you get the jetpack and can suddenly go all sorts of places you've seen but had no idea how to reach. Skells aren't all that big by giant robot standards, but they feel massive thanks to the world design.

So I've gotten three Ares 90s for my NPCs and decided to try out a level 60 for myself and wow, the damage decrease is huge. I've been hearing you can build a Skell that can match the 90, but how are you supposed to even get close?
>>
>>13736653
Superweapons probably. And also swapping the parts with better ones. I got some level 60 skell parts from drops that I equip to Excavator and it does boost the stat. Though not much, but I assume there must be better parts to find out there.

How do you get the superweapons trimmed down to a reasonable cooldown? 120 seconds is rough.

For frame I went with a Formula Zero. Normally I prefer heavy Skells, but that massive base accuracy and evasion are hard to resist. Superweapons only cover back and shoulders, what's recommended for arms, firearms and spares?

Go to the west side of Primordia where there's a lake. At the west end of the lake there will be a waterfall over an overhang. The path under the overhang leads into a cave, and just outside the entrance you'll find the senirapa water in a red crystal.

Fuck this quest. The quest marker and follow ball brought me all the way to the northern coast of Caulderous and made me run circles around that death volcano that fucks up the follow ball until I gave in and googled the answer.

I asked my wife how she had finished it, and she just let the guy die and took the water when he asked her to. In hindsight, I should have done the same.

But space has no temperature. In fact, because its a vacuum, it serves as a great insulator. In other words, you're more likely to die from overheating than you are from freezing.

>>
>>13747774
>>13747762
>>13747126
You would freeze in deep space for certain. The body radiates enough heat to drop in temperature in a vacuum absent an external source of more energy, like the sun, over enough time (at least if we're talking about a human body). Loss of heat through convection is only one factor.

If you were in orbit around Earth, floating around in space without a suit and in view of the sun, you'd freeze. You need to be a little closer for energy lost through black body radiation and energy gained from the sun to cancel out. You also need to be spinning, because the human body doesn't transfer heat all that well (being mostly water), so if you were stationary, the side facing the sun would fry and your ass would freeze.

The timeframe for frying is much shorter than the one for fully freezing, but we are also ignoring the loss of energy through means other than radiation which would realistically be undergoing a body in space (like the evaporation of liquids; if you've ever sprayed a can of compressed air for a long time, or held it upside-down to shoot out the liquid, you've experienced how decompression = cooling).

But it's kinda silly when the LOD is coded such that there's significant pop with the models

Finally got my Ares 90

....Now... what to do
>>
>>13755930
Run around and kill most of the Tyrants, there's only a few that an Ares 90 with two or three Slayer parts can't one-shot.

I personally kept grinding for more until I had three of them to give my squadmates, I might build a fourth to tide me over until I can get a super-Skell going.

A big thing is that now you can handle Yggralith Zero if he's around, an Ares 90 that stays in the air over him is practically indestructible and can easily break all his parts to rack up RP and reward tickets.
>>
>>13755930
Complete your survey by one-shotting every Tyrant that isn't level 90+, and craft augments so you can one-shot every Tyrant but Telethia.

Protip: the probe's RIGHT in front of a level 59 enemy that aggros on sight, build at least 1000TP, go behind the enemy and use Shadow Walker (the FMJ aura that nullifies enemy detection when used from behind), then cancel the fight with B and you can simply walk to the probe undetected.

The final boss room in this game is more bullshit than in the first game somehow.

Lao empties your fuel tanks at the start of the fight so you HAVE to take him on foot.

I actually managed to total my only level 50 Skell in the first phase of the first boss because I wasn't paying attention to his REFLECT EVERYTHING skill. It took me several tries to beat the second phase on foot.

>>
>>13757268
>the other two actually ran out of fuel somehow
The last form of final boss actually has a move that completely suck out fuel from your Skells
>>
>>13757268
I started and finished that final fight on foot. The main story trio was already maxed out at 60, and I had skills to keep their TP, as well as my own, up through the duration, As soon as one Overdrive went down, another one was going up. Pretty much worked it the same way as when I had to deal with the cat people. Just get ready to overdrive and use every spin skill I had available alongside any limb destruction skills. Stream Edge, Blossom, and Rising blade are wonderful workhorse skills for Longsword.
Seeing as I just finished the game myself, quick question.
Will I be able to add lao back into my party later via Affinity mission?

>>13758091

Have you tried ever PLAYING as Dunban? Because you can set up some insane art combos that loop into one-another and are a ton of fun.

I dunbanned for a bit and it was alright, but I never experimented with his combo potential since the game never actually showed how there's an art that sets up that one weird coolguysdontlookatexplosions art of his so I just stuck to the early game vanilla shit because building meter all day erryday was how I played XBC.

Fucking hell, okay, so I finally unlocked Definian's Downfall. In case it helps anyone else: once you do the Professor B and Alex storylines, plus I think a few others, there'll be a woman off to the left of the barracks along the wall towards the East Gate. Talk to her, she'll call herself the town helper and vanish. This unlocks the Ambush quest at the console, which leads into the final quest chain. It took me weeks to figure out you had to do that.

Definian's Downfall is also balls-hard if you're not ready, since it's no Skells allowed. Bring Elec, Beam, and Gravity resistance.

I went in half-assed with my treasure sensor gear and one of my party members at 40. Most fights weren't had, but a lot slower than they needed to be, and the one with Gravity attacks pretty much instagibbed me because I had heavy armor on. I'm sure it'll be fine when I do it with proper armor.
>>
>>13764401

I can't even comprehend what they were thinking make every Skell skill have 30-60 second cooldowns and removing secondary/tertiary cooldowns entirely. You can never respond to soul voices because your skills are always down and there's no real incentive to save them up because you're just wasting damage by not using them. Plus none of the Skell skills really combo together like the ground skills do. Skell combat really boils down to G-Buster, Drone, Wait, Repeat Until Dead more often than not.

On the upside, it feels good to G-Buster enemies who would otherwise give you trouble.

Medium Skell armour gets bonuses to Ranged/Melee attack and accuracy, as opposed to Heavy armour which gets bonuses to damage types (Thermal, energy etc). They're better for specialising in either melee or ranged, whereas Heavies are more balanced across a couple of damage types.
>>
>>13767979
If you want to build something that can one-shot Telethia, you want a heavy since the bonuses from damage type ups are huge. If you want survivability, Formula Zero is about as close as you'll get to matching the ridiculous Evasion of the Ares 90.
>>

Easy there, hothead.
>>
>>13773193
You mean Lailah Queen.
>>
>>13767979
>>13773193

Lailah's gimmick is that it can keep up Overdrive all the time with its 6k GP and makes it almost invincible since its Overdrive makes it take less damage, regenerates its HP and protects it from debuffs. It doesn't do as much damage as other Skells but it takes less grinding to set up.

Formula and Verus can stack evasion to the point that nothing can touch it but frankly I don't think it's worth it since all of the evasion augs take an absurd amount of grinding.

The super one-shot Skell build is a Mastema with the Zenith Cannon and the armor from the Amdusias and damage augments out the ass. You can oneshot everything except Telethia which takes two shots and Gradivus which is better for ground builds anyways.

Honestly you can kill everything in the game with just an Ares 90 and the right augments so I don't see much point going past that unless you don't like how it looks or something. Also, literally the only level 90+ bosses that would require any specialized augments and can't be fought on foot are Telethia, Vortice and Terminus.

I've noticed that they usually fuck up the first bind opportunity, but hold the second one if the monster gets staggered again.
