What is best indigen species and why is it Saltat?
So im about lvl 24 ish and about to do chapter 6. I remember someone posting something in one of these threads that i needed to lvl up Gwin before doing chapter 6 or i would be fucked, is that the case? hes only like lvl 16 or some shit.
WELL shit he made me his pupil anyways. I swear this game is the one game that makes me freak out about choices.
Shop equipment upgrades every 10 levels, staggered by 5 for weapons and armor. Different manufacturers have different augments on their products, and leveling them up also changes and improves what they have. Dropped equipment can be any level.
>Fennec Fox-esque indigens
>dat ear splitting screech
I just beat the game
just grind and do affinity missions I guess?
There are plently of affinity missions and regular missions that unlock after you beat the game.
I'm just worried that I might need some top lvl skell to beat some of them and I have no idea how to get the materials for even the lvl 60 skells.
>Recommend she stay and not take a shower because who the fuck just walks off on their own in a situation like this

Did you guys notice that the base of the Delusian Mountains in Sylvalum kind of looks like a starship?
You also find the Sword of Legendaryness there, deep in a cave on the mountain.
Maybe Nopon aren't as native as they think.
> farming lepyx stones for potential augments
It's saddening yet so satisfying. It reminds me of the scene in Jurassic World with a field of dead Apatosauruses. Yet using the skell's sniper has the same satisfying impact of popping bubble wrap.
i have since then
i even had the minimap off for a bit and just relied on the gamepad and follow ball for a bit and played in first person but it makes it hard to do squad miisions without a map. not impossible but when you're the only one doing the missions and you want to special complete bonus you cant waste time running around
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
There's like 2 of them in the whole area, how shit are your driving skills that you manage to bump into them
Not to mention they don't even bother with you when you're on foot.

I know I'll remember the REEEE skunks and the scrotum spiders for a long time to come. Also those little flying creatures that hang around the river in Oblivia and make the most adorable squeaking sounds. And those huge golem-looking guys like Yama the Obliviator. A lot of the indigens are cool as hell.
>Final boss reflects an art and one shots me

This was actually way more fun until he drowned me in extra spawns
There's just nothing you can do at that point, it stops being fun
You know those big, thin landmasses that are all over Primordia, that kind of look like the Sydney Opera House? One of them is particularly close to NLA, and is pointing towards it. There's a tyrant that lives near there, and it goes to the tip of that plateau around 5:00 each day before leaving. It's level 90 as well.

I hole-hardedly agree, but allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go. Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn't take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It's clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother's mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it’s a peach of cake.
>Also those little flying creatures that hang around the river in Oblivia and make the most adorable squeaking sounds
>Confused them for jacul since I hardly paid that much attention since all i knew was that they had horns and flew
>Fucked up big time on the "Talons" side mission
Fair enough. I saw one of those far off islands but there was one of those giant flying whales patrolling around so I decided "oh well, guess THAT'S for another day." But yeah it's so fun exploring around and digging through every little nook and cranny.
Don't worry about it anon. The story is really only like 1/4th of the game's meat compared to all of the sidequests and exploring you can do. Probably even less. The only thing you're really missing out on right now is skell access, but you should be getting one soon.
Our most harpfelt art policies, anon. We didn't mean to irrigate you but we were underwears about the current virgin of the copy past stirs. We will make sure to amen this era in future,
On the other hand, it makes it easier to drag around and level up some party members that you never got around to using. I scooped up a bunch of quests from NLA today so I decided to take my level 45 avatar and level 18-24 H.B./Alexa/Hope for some quick leveling while I knocked the quests out. Even if the monsters kill your team in a single blow, it's usually easy enough to solo them from inside a skell.
>Select all images with pancakes
Don't do this to me at fucking 4 AM, Captcha.
I thought that, unlike other Xenos, L actually learned and is currently speaking the English language because of the piece of the Lifehold that he rummaged through. Hence why his English mannerisms are so broken.
>Tfw NoA completely gave up any attempt at lipsyncing 1/5th into the game
Mira houses Alvis in its core. Alvis is the one gathering many races together and forcing them to live in cooperation to fulfill Shulk's wish for peace and unification across the cosmos. He's also the one translating everything and taking over as the mim's consciousness database.
He did, but anyone not speaking English would be even more confused than people who understand English. In English it sounds similar to the right phrase; in Ma-nonese or Noponese or whatever you don't even have that. It'd be nearly pure gibberish.
Each of the 14 avatar voices says something different, and all of the playable characters in the game responds differently to it.
Mine is "one small step for BLADE, one giant leap for humankind!" And Doug for example said something about astronauts.
>Saw this shit today
Fucking headless my ass
Thats a parasite within the body controlling it, making it more disturbing than it should be.
Like I said, I completely missed what my guy said, but I just thought it was hilarious how L completely ignored it in favor of pointing out the funny accent. Makes me wanna play with headphones in more often, just to hear little bits of dialogue that often go over my head. Even if it means sacrificing my gamepad display.
>tfw I fucked that choice up
as well as the choices for the sidequest where that BLADE guy is trapped in cauldros
>mfw the rest of that quest
This fucking game, man. I felt genuinely guilty.

Don't suggest the crazy plan to figure out who the sniper is, unless you want to skip a "gather info in NLA" quest at the cost of 500 000 bucks.
As much as it sucks, I kinda like living with my own decisions. I only knew to tell the guy to go
southbecause I read that that was the right answer in one of these threads. I'm not really sure what I would have said if I didn't have that knowledge, but I feel a little worse for "cheating" in that quest than I did for letting the scientist shower.
Yeah, I've decided to stick to my guns and have not reloaded for either of those quests, because it just would've been wrong, y'know? I'm just glad I've only screwed up those two specifically so far, so hopefully I don't manage to uh...get anyone else killed.
I managed to make the right choice with the suids and helicopter so far. Don't know if there's anything else that I've inadvertently NOT fucked up, but if there was, then I'm glad to have avoided disaster.
>Every time you see another player get the "Executive Decision" achievement, and wondering if they fucked up or not
Honestly, for the Suids in particular I felt like it was pretty obvious that killing them was the right option. There are a lot of indigens on Mira that are either brave or inquisitive, or sometimes both, and they get hungry. Having a Suid nest that close was a danger.
>How do you want your continent familia?
Most of the choice based missions I've completed have gone fine, except for the Wrothian one where
that girl runs off to Cauldros. I got tripped up because I thought the outcome hinged on my dialogue choices, not finding an item around the base. I found out too late. It is my biggest regret.

These sidequests are so good.
I have two questions.
1. Why are light Skells so shit? I jacked mine up with retarded amounts of evasion and they still never dodge a thing and die quickly. Heavy skells look ugly but they're really good and tanking hits is more effective than 'dodging' them.
2. How do I keep the screen from blurring until I can't see shit when activating overdrive?
Bonus: Why are there no audio options? The dialogue in cutscenes is really really quiet while everything else is loud in comparison.
Yeah, super weapons are the only level 60 Skell weapons.
You can get level 50 weapons as drops that are considerably more powerful then the ones sold in the shop though. Pic related.
For details on where to get them
Yes, but you need to get them from enemy drops. There's also plenty of weapon types you can't get from shops period, like Ganglion mech weaponry (though I'm not sure any of them are even any good..)
There's a google doc that explains a ton of it, giving specific locations and everything that a friendly anon made, but I forgot to save it. If anyone has it, could you post it?
fuck bad ends

I've found better use with the light frames+Lailah myself. I haven't even geared myself fully up with augments, hardly at all actually, and with Lailah I've got about 300 evasion, plus a shield that boosts Evasion. I can take on and evade most things up to around lvl 80-85 Tyrants.
The Ganglion R-Cannon is the best single slot back weapon by a considerable margin
I also really like the 662 Night-Cage, even though Elec damage is kind of meh overall as a build

Interesting, I'll have to try those 2 out then. I remember reading somewhere that the Ganglion stuff was kind of shitty, but have hardly messed with them myself.
Also thats a damn sexy skell you got there. Top tier color coordination.
You can choose not to kill them? The choices seemed pretty much going toward the same end at first glance. Dodged a bullet there.
>tfw Xenoblade choices are more meaningfull than fucking Fallout 4
How did Bethesda managed to fuck up that much?
>That post credit scene
I now understand the frustrations.
It might be level 90, but it's not going to be destroying NLA.
I was really surprised by how easy it went down.
Then I got cocky and figured that the one in the Cauldros volcano during Brimstone rain would be of similar difficulty.
You can't force cockpit view.
It's random on art use, the best you can do is use low cooldowns, and no double slot gear.
I've heard mentions of Potential effecting your chances, but I haven't noticed that at all.
If it were true, the Ares 90, with it's grossly inflated potential stat, would get it per art use far more often and it just doesn't seem to
>best way to make money
uh..... kill level 61 and higher enemies and sell Ultra Regal/Ultra Infinite gear. I guess
Maybe use a Phoenix skell weapon to kill that fuck huge group of alligators at the top of the falls in Noctilum or inbetween the towers at the back of the Ganglion base at FN 409 in Sylvalum and "sell all"
Question in regards to Skells.
Is it worth actually wearing Skell ground armour over regular ground armour? Skell ground armour has pretty low defense, so enemies my own level wreck me pretty fast if they target me.
I'm only asking because not all fights can be fought while piloting a Skell.
What do you guys think of Chronicles on the 3DS? I heard the Wii version is a bit better but I don't have one and can not emulate because my computer's too weak. Is it still good when not compared to the Wii version?
Okay so, in that case I should be rocking a set of Skell ground gear for fights where I know I'll be using my Skell, and keep a set of regular ground gear in reserve for other situations.
It's a % increase in your Skell's stats, so yes it's worth it for fighting specific Tyrants.
When you need it, you'll take the time to swap your gear before hand.
Otherwise just use your ground gear.
>notice that Elvira has some loot that I want
>get scared because I'm assuming that the Ares won't be able to kill it from it's size and level
>she shoots up into the air and dies
I heard the Ares was broken but this is ridiculous
With Ls machine you can always get max augment slots even on stuff with only 1 slot.
Did i fuck up by maxing every manufacturer, since the standard buildt in augments are shitty compared to the ones you can craft?
Sorry, but duelist doesn't have as good melee combos, essence exchange, geolibrium, or astrolibrium.
Can't hear you over my infinite TP, melee damage with no need of potential, and being one of 3 choices to be able to reflect damage.
so like anyone know if you can craft more than 1 of the craftable skell frames?
like can i have more that one ares 90s or can i only have one?
cause if so i can easily get myself a second one for my party members but if not ill work making and gathering other shit to do something different instead
>no idea how to get the materials for even the lvl 60 skells.
you either grind out 8k+ reward tickets if you instead dont want to farm monsters and something that took me quite a while to figure out as i tried to find out where to get the shit need is that some of the mats especially that vita core or crude mask thingys seem to only be obtainable through the time attack missions things.
and yes treasure sensors does seem to help make getting the drops at tad bit easier
you know those saltats that make the tower in oblivia?
I got out of my skell to try and get a good pic and they all aggroed on me, I ran away and came back. The top one hadn't reset his position yet but then reset and they formed this instead
checking out the divisiongram made me realize how broken the online makes the game.
I mean, Prospectors get a free Skell insurance ticket every day just for having the game on
That's potentially millions of credits that they get everyday
It's pretty pointless in the end anyway. You get good enough to not fuck the skell break QTE, you have endless amount of money and miranium at the postgame since for everything good you need to either farm monsters or reward tickets. Not to mention if you are preparing for a tough fight you can just reload a save if you fuck up and lose your skell.

>trying to kill 6 Lake Falsaxum

Party's Lv 28 and it just doesn't work. I tried playing Lin to apply Topple myself, but then Elma won't Stagger it.
Do I really have to overlevel to kill these things? I killed three just fine.
some of the piano soundtracks are really good. if they but those in all of XCX's cutscenes, sI could actually hear the voices.
That being said Chapter 5 is fucking perfectly directed.
Also Vasara, Ga Jiarg's skell is way too fucking cool
Nope, but you can later find her in Oblivia. She feels bad for ripping you off and gives you
200k. There's also a Manon on the ship who tells you she needed the money to buy medicine for some of the sick wrothians.
>Can have up to 4 party members
>have like 20 possible party members to use
>one is always taken up by OC MC
>Elma and Lin are always required for Story missions and a bunch of sidequest/affinity missions
>characters don't get any XP unless they're in your party
This is one of the things that really pisses me off about this game. Worst part is that it doesn't even seem like Lin's that important to the plot.
I don't understand why more missions aren't just like the last one, where doug and the rest of the crew tag along with you regardless of whether or not they're in your active party. Almost every other fucking rpg does this.
Cut out most of the "fluff" like affinity and soul voices (since you only use them for about 1/3rd of the game.) and so on. Expand on party banter and have characterization just happen in cutscenes or naturally through talking, like Vermintide, if anyone's played that. Because the fucking game seems to go out of its way to encourage me to fiddle around for hours looking for affinity mission markers and dumb crap and stop me just exploring.
>find a sweet semi hidden bolt hole or cave
>empty, probably for some quest or some shit
The side missions once you were on them was fine, but the artbitrary friendship meter and having to crawl all over the city and create a fucking flow chart to keep track of where/when they unlock is bullshit.
>yfw you don't fast travel anymore because the best part of the flight theme is 1:25 minutes in.
he's talking about the affinity missions
you need to build affinity to do them
not the heart to hearts. you also need affinity to do them but they're just dialogue events
but the gamepad keeps track of all that shit for you. you dont need to remember anything
Addendum, the way the map worked was also shit. Just make it bigger, be the same map as your minimal, and let you create "markers", and each chest/tyrant killed gives a completion %. The hex system and figuring out what "completed" the hex was dumb.
>people still are puzzled why there is less story
“The design focus for this game was on map exploration and character builds during battle,” says Takahashi. “We deliberately distanced ourselves from having philosophical themes intertwined with the core of the story. Given that we at Monolith Soft had no experience with developing HD titles, our goal with this project was to experiment with and implement the assorted tech skills we needed for HD game development. We decided that trying to balance that with an epic theme-laden story would pose difficulties. Our hope is that we can start by creating the core system, then expand on the story and thematic elements in our future project.”
“If, say, a human character needs a map around 1km square to play on, then a robot six times that size would need a map 6km square—in other words, 36 times the size. At the same time, we can’t multiply our dev budget by 36 times what we need to create maps for human characters, so we needed to innovate with ways to express that kind of scope while keeping costs down. I think we did a really good job striking a balance with this project.”
Their ability to stack is only exceeded by their ability to spot you and murder from a long distance with bubbles. You're a madman.
The issue is how many plot threads they stuff in and how "complex" they make certain elements and then never follow up. Want a good plot for the last of humanity crash landing on a mysterious planet? Just rip off phantasy star online and add your own flavour. Or have the aliens hunting us have a good reason. I was bummed out that humanity was "followed", the idea of us being a casualty in a huge war beyond our scope was cool as fuck, then a bunch of assholes turn up and are like "Murr humanity a disease must purge durrrr." Fuck.
>“We deliberately distanced ourselves from having philosophical themes intertwined with the core of the story.
that final chapter says fucking otherwise. Like god damn at the amount of shit they try to shove into a single chapter is almost to much.
Like the only thing that could explain would be if they worked on it super early on but i fucking doubt it.
game is still great and even though i know there is no way it will happen i wish this fucking game got actually story expansion dlc content cause fuck that epilogue god damn fuck. Makes me almost want to play the first one just at least a possible better grasp at the story even though ive been told it wont really help much in understand what the fuck was up with that shit
Faster than me I'm 214 hours in, only just beat chapter 10. 74 hours it took me to just start Chapter 6 only because I was exploring and with the frontier nav and making money and miranuim.
Why are people so adamant in believing there won't be a sequel? Takahashi just said their next project will be a different one, not that they're never returning to the series. Let them do what they want.
i mean takahshi probably felt bad not having any story, so he cram all that in the end, so prior Xeno fans wouldn't feel upset that he's given up.
it's just to hold your interest. But my god this game when you actually think about the ending, things get damn philosphical. It's giving me them xenogears vibes.
That definitely explains a lot. They definitely succeeded in their main goal then.
I cannot fucking wait for them to work with a console with some actual power behind it like the NX.
>then a bunch of assholes turn up and are like "Murr humanity a disease must purge durrrr." Fuck.
unless you haven't finished the main story don't read the following spoiler but:
did you really not get the metric ton of religious reference shoved in that final chapter especially in those final boss fights? Like jesus fucking christ it was almost to god damned much and almost to god damned blunt as all fuck.
>i mean takahshi probably felt bad not having any story, so he cram all that in the end, so prior Xeno fans wouldn't feel upset that he's given up.
eh i guess your right and didnt really think about it that way. since now thinking back on it the actually amount of story content counting only parts with spoken dialogue at least is pretty sparse.
but then again if you include all the non mandatory side mission content that is text only and doesnt actually really count towards main story progress there actually is alot of story content in the sense that one learns and figures out about how the world they are on and all the alieums they meat along the way actually work and behave.
Main "campaign" is technically super sparse and short and super small part in the whole game in retrospect but everything else surrounding it doesn't make it seem that way and actually expands quite nicely even if not mandotory.

Hey guys, when should I consider investing in skells for my team mates?
I'm on Chapter 9 now, and the fight is kicking my ass. I'm thinking now would be a good time to get some skells for the others, but I'm afraid they'll go full retard and ruin them, which would cost me tons of money and get me nowhere.
Also, any other tips for that fight? I tried investing in thermal gear, humanoid criticals, etc, then swapping to mechanoid criticals for the mech battle, but it doesn't seem to help much.
Hey guys, I just stated playing this game and I'm only an hour until. What is the deal with the B button prompt that shows up? When should I swap from range to melee or vice versa? What's the upper hand achieved by knocking an enemy down?
They don't lose insurance upon being destroyed, so you can easily give them ones without worry.
Two level 30's should be more than enough for that fight. Give the shitty Urban you got for free to another person.
>What is the deal with the B button prompt that shows up?
Heals you and team mates if you do it right. Also I think it helps morale but I've never really paid attention to that.
AI party members will always get a perfect evacuation if their skell is destroyed. The only way to lose insurance on a skell is if you, the player, fuck it up.
My personal skell order was freebie 20 Urban->30 Amdusias->30 Verus for a party member->50 Amdusias->freebie 60 Excavator. Currently working on the Ares 90.
Why the fuck do they even give you the option of choosing which field skill to level? Mechanical is so much more useful than either Biological or Archeological that it's kind of stupid. I think it's really stupid that they tied planting probes to the mechanical field skill.
Just beat the game. Is Mira supposed to be the JRPG version of the island from LOST? Some sort of weird magical purgatory, I mean there's even a reverse Satan wandering around that can join your party.
Is there any kind of post game content that digs into the prologue?
B button is the prompt to trigger your own soul voices to the team.
Melee builds up more TP but draws more aggro.
Ranged is the opposite.
Also, the secondary cooldown for artes will only build uo if you're currently using the weapon linked to it (ex.: Slit Edge and Knife, Assault Hammer and Assault Rifle).
Read the short stories, they are essentially a prologue of the game that shows life on Mira before your character was awakened. It's a very entertaining read, with a LOT of foreshadowing about the events of the game.
There's a particular line that hints a bit at the nature of Mira:
However, that did not mean the Moby Dick was safe. A strange planet had appeared before the ship. One that was not marked on the space chart they had acquired before departing the Earth.
The B prompts are called "soul challenges". Perfecting them grants healing and TP, getting a "good" grants healing. If you manage to perfect or get a good, your character will ask your teammates for a specific type of art. If your teammates oblige, you'll get some extra heal or their art will gain some special property. You can customize what will trigger your character's Soul Challenges in the "Soul Voice" menu under Party. Alternatively, sometimes your teammates will be the one asking for a specific art type (arts are all color-coded, orange = melee attack, yellow = ranged attack, green = buff, purple = debuff, blue = aura), if you answer their call with the proper art type, YOUR art will be the one to gain the extra special effect (the effects range from reduced cooldown to extra TP gain to more damage to stronger tier of buff, etc., you can see what your teammates' Soul Voices are in the Soul Voice menu, but unlike yours, theirs aren't customizable),
Knocking an enemy down lowers its evasion and defense, meaning your attacks will connect more easily AND do more damage. It also stops it from attacking for the duration of the topple. So it's really useful and you should try to topple enemies as much as possible. Keep in mind that enemies are WAY easier to topple if you inflict them with stagger first, so it might be a good idea to wait for Elma to use Shadowstrike before you using your Assault Hammer.

I have no idea what a Curator is in terms of Xenoblade or who your waifu is, I just call everybody's girl shit when they say they're cute, sorry for ruining your day. She's very pretty. I'm sure you'd be happy together if she was real.faggot fuck you.
He's tough as fuck, too. Even though he's something like level 77, he can smack an Ares 90's shit, despite that Skell being strong enough to one-shot a lot of level 90 tyrants.
Wow I saw something like this last night but didn't realize what it was. The mobs were like mid-50s so I didn't get too close but I was wondering why the fuck a lv33 was in the middle of a bunch of lv50ish mobs.
desu i was literally shocked those two skills go up to 100% chance of not waking up the target.
also what determines if a monster is resistant to sleep. Is it the attribute resistances?
Like say a monster has -20 gravity and 80 electric resistance. Would a gravity based knife be more likely to inflict sleep via screemer vs say an electric knife?
Hmmm I'm not sure famalam, the way to go for that faggot seems to be Sniper+Knife for sleep and damage, but thats just the builds ive seen floating around, I just finished the game and it seems to be the consensus.
do I have to complete every single mission on that mission terminal if I want 100% survey?

I'm just using all of the reflect Augs with a half baked version of the gatling/javelin build
I've farmed/collected all but Gravity since I think that one comes from Telethia and I can do Infinite overdrive without a hassle
doing 1 mil damage will be a whole other thing though
I think gravity comes from Pharsis and ether from Telethia, but I haven't fought either of them so I don't know for sure. I've just been using a piece of chest armor with gravity reflect which is nice because it frees up a slot for aura extend. I've been using psycho launchers for shooting star but it's pretty underwhelming. Might switch to gatling for fun.
I just mastered the sniper rifle class and really like the arts, what class should I go to next? I'm not a fan of melee combat so I want decent skills and supportive arts while I keep using the rifle.
That would make some sense I guess, if the planet turned out to be artificial or some kind of construct that houses a massive computer. Or the planet itself is alive, who the fuck knows. I just hope that the next Xenoblade game is not necessarily a direct sequel but a continuation of the story in the same universe, maybe set some hundreds of years later. I want some answers dammit!
hey remember how the manon mention that the ganglion are basically a small-time criminal gang and that they're nothing compared to the greater galactic empire? I want to know more about that shit.
Sticking with javelin wouldn't hurt because it has Hair Trigger which is really useful with the single hit arts the sniper rifle has and Raijin is really useful later in the game when you start getting more reflect augments. Photon saber would also be useful. It has debuff arts for three different damage types which can be switched depending on what kind of rifle you use. It also has an aura which grants supercharge, one that increases beam damage and also gives reflect. A beam rifle later with Astrolibrium and a full set of reflect augments would be pretty much unstoppable.
>xe-dom and oc servs
There is one near the Anvil in SYlvalum that you can see it how it gets built just before it goes on a patrol with the two Orc servs who build the Xe-dom following it
The Ganglion are genetically engineered servants to the Samaar who rule the intergalactic empire. And humans are said to be descendants of the Samaar.
Elma's true form looks a lot like KOS-MOS
the manon said that the ganglion
are part of the greater Samaarian empire. but at the end of the game it's revealed that the samaarians are ancestors to modern humans, and that humans were made as an anti-ganglion weapon. a human's very presence is like Ganglion kryptonite.
so Samaarians would love humans
so Samaarians would love humans
I seriously doubt that, they made teh Ganglion as a slave race and that is kind of shitty for the Ganglion since they are nothing more than tools and then they made humans so if the Ganglion ever got bitchy they would just unleash the humans on them, in other words the humans are tools too, there is also the Zaruboggans who are a cockroach race created to clean up a world they fucked beyond belief with ultra toxic shit
the whole concept of conciousness, the fact that
your actual body is dead never left earth and that you aren't remote controlled at all.
Then the fact that Mira is controlling conciousness, which is why you can understand all these languages and speak them without being aware.
Takahshi i need my sequel please.
The planet is probably artificial in some way, it probably houses a Wave Existence analogue in it, May May says that when she went to talk with Kristy about the Miranium they found it weird how the planet does not seem to run out of it no matter how much they mined a single place, they also found the Miranium weird in that it somehow is compatible with all the tech levels of every single race currently on the planet
The Orphe also comment how their Ovah has encountered the Telethia of the Dinive Roost in another planet
He also refers to himself as We, and has the name of L'cirufe
Man this game's is setting up to get one hell of a ride in Takahashi's sequel.
Lets not forget that the Ganglion never actually destroyed the white whale. It was the other alien race which we never encounter. They are called the Ghost faction. They have tech that can bypass matter, whicwas shown in the first cutscene.
Elma also talks about "ghost's presence" when they found the vita mech in chapter 6.
tfw I just infinite Overdrive + Ghostwalker
and elmas robutt looks like T-elos
Depends on if someone with a scanner is going to bother with it.
It's not that expensive though and it has some cool stuff in it. I hope someone translates the interviews someday.
What affects survey rate aside from probes. I'm trying to get Primordia to 15% so I can do Chapter 4 but planting half the probes only has me at 13.1%.
Also how do probe networks not being set up affect things. I've set up a few probes that have no nearby probes connecting them to base and they still put the survey rating up.
CHOCO did some of the concept art for Elma's clothes so that might not be too surprising.
The reprogram ending is pretty lame.
She's still a bitch albeit a sillier one. She tries to fuck shit up again and you can either kill her or spare her and force her to sit, alone at the top of the Blade tower.
>One bad apple makes every apple shit
He was just a hungry customer. He even admits to being an asshole because of how hungry he was if you talk to him immediately eating the pizza.
In my experience these are far more rare than octopus boards. I've farmed tons of qmoeva for reinforced frames with maxed out treasure sensor and only ended up with maybe three or four capacitors. Xe-dom's have tons of other drops that are necessary for crafting other things like hands and crests, so farming them for octopus boards and saving up their other mats for later and using tickets for capacitors would probably be more efficient.
Doing what the icon of each tile signifies. If it looks like a lion head, you have to kill the specified tyrant. A list is a quest, and the star-looking symbols is a treasure point.
People around the world including in NLA and outposts will have a yellow passing dialogue bubble that will fill in these icons on your map as you explore.
Three random blade women. There was this really dykish looking blade that I kinda regret not picking as the option for her date. Would've been more interesting dialouge probably.
>Going from matricide to cake-obsessed cats
This fucking game, man.
What's the best looking male armor (normal clothes excluded)?
I feel like there's plenty of good looking armor for the women but I can't stand how much of the male armor bulks up the hip area.
>fighting some quest indigen on that lake in primordia
>mfw Potato-chan manages to aggro 3 of these fuckers at once
>Walking through the commercial district
>Hear something about Army Pizza being taken over by the Manon
Did I miss a quest or are they just referring to the fact that Manon fucking love pizza and hang around constantly?
Yes but Elma noted the presence of a ghost. the ghost faction have the ability to go through matter, which was shown in the beginning sequence. Elma and the tandem pilot fought them inside NLA using the original Ares. Seems like the via is controlled by anti-matter. If you know anything about physics, anti-matter cannot be detectable. It's matter that constitutes most of the universe but is undetectable.
This is why elma said ghost.
They place exclusively caters to the ma-non customer base.
What mystifies me is that there's another place just around the block that exclusively sells pizza called "Smile Pizza" and nobody even references that place. I wonder why.
All the candid and credible looks very nice except for the helmets and Orphean looks awesome. The light versions of both of those make your ass look fantastic so I've been wearing those most of the game.
Light orphean is the most natural and suited to its supposed augments (evasion), but you might find it turns you gay. Other orphean and ma-non sets are still well designed though. Just take off the sleeves if you find them excessive; it's not like tank tops aren't the standard medium of exchange on Mira anyway.
>late at night irl
>FUCKING LOUD ASS HONK OUT OF NOWHERE
>almost shit my pants
>never noticed the Saltat behind me
and that's how I gained respect for the indigen
it was the tanktop container in the white whale.nagi was directing the ship to a beach paradise planet. at the moment of the crash, tank tops covered every inch in mira.
that's how it started
>Cool someone is making an Elma model.
>Last posted: 12th of November
I felt sorry for her after I picked her
She didn't care at all that she was actually talking to ayylmao pussy, she just enjoyed the conversation
and then he went full actualy love crossu and I was like what
You made me collect all this shit for you
Atleast get back to your original form for some scissoring

In regards to that spoiler,
if all mims are independent of their original persons, does that mean that every mim is not consciously who they were on Earth? It's like if someone uploaded your data onto a computer, would it be that there's still you and another you that's data instead?
>Decide to finally talk to some generic NPCs
>Talk to a kitty cat in Oblivia
>She tells me she's been looking at that Saltat tyrant on the other side of the river and it seems it's doing a weird ritual dance to revive the dead
Telling you Saltats are going to be the main enemy of XCX2
Before I waste BP does the skill in striker that increases melee damage and the beam damage skill in enforcer stack with each other in order to boost the damage of say... photon sabers? Or is it just beam (or others like ether) damage and not ''melee'' ?
