So, what's your favourite theme in XCX?
Yes, XCX. I won't let you all post XC themes
how about Tomboys in SKELL SUITS?!
And Mandatory NAGI.
not sure If I'll keep this helmet on him, a few other options, some are pretty aight.
>that concept art
imagine if in the lifehold instead of the soldier chimera being spawned to 'defend' you had horrible mutated people who had biting fingers and, like, blades made of bone coming out of their elbows and mouths that went ear to ear filled with teeth, and not every people!chimera would have the same mutations and they all had different, mismatched skintones and body features
He can drop multiple.
Anyone want to take a guess as to how many resets it would take for him to drop all 3 of his weapons at once?
I've had other enemies drop 3 pieces of gear at once, I'm just assuming that holds true here as well
And No, they're absolutely terrible.
But as far as I'm aware this is the only chance to acquire them
Well, one thing I could think about is getting someone to get to the fight, save, beat it, treasure deal the results; reset.
I think I got an F-Arrow; the weapons are from any Caladar, just this one is the highest, much like Sarnaak's Seidr and R-Cannons.
Yeah, the 60 series of the three weapons types, A-Spear, F-Arrow, and L-Cannon, only drops from this guy
Unless there are more high level Caladars I'm not aware of.
I'm treasure dealing the results and resetting right now
I wonder if anyone in my squad will even appreciate it.
Due to the Friend's Squad option, it really shouldn't be that difficult to acquire all three with that method though.
Assuming you got a friend at that part who is willing to help that is.
Spearing of Wrothian skell weapons, why is it that the only one actually worth using, the HOMURA, doesn't have a level 50 version?
I mean really, when you talk to the prince he says that he wants to try fighting Elma so why is there no high level refight against the Vasara?
You're not going to get enough evade on a level 30 skell to really be untouchable like you want.
It's certainly not a bad choice, and it DOES come with a g-buster, but Lailah and Amdusias are probably better frames if you can only afford one.
Stability is more consistent damage
Some weapons have a huge variance in the amount of damage they can do with an attack, a more stable weapon gets closer to always use its exact listed value in the damage equation.
This raises you damage minimum, but also lowers your damage maximum
>Skill that increases electric damage by 300% when shock is inflicted
>Skill that has a 20% chance of inflicting shock when a melee art is used
what is the fastest weapon?
GG knife has an auto attack cooldown of 0.8 sec
pretty sure that's the fastest melee weapon
But I don't see how you plan on using that considering what you described procs off art use
To be fair my character is only a class level 4 Striker because I started leveling partisan eagle, realized it was boring as fuck, started leveling a psycorrupter, realized it was too limited early on, and then finally switched to a Striker so I felt like I had abilities that actually accomplished things.
Unfortunately this means my abilities are limited and of a low level.
Maybe I should just control Elma for this fight.
With this outfit I have finally achieved my goal of being able to play this game while fapping until my dick breaks.

THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THIS FUCKING PLANET
I want to believe there is a legit godlike power whose influence stretches across the planet, causing all the THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THIS PLANET moments. Like a Monado or something in the core of the planet with leaking magical energy
I was expecting both of them to be recruitable at some point after
they decide to be mercenaries fighting against the Ganglion. I thought they'd demand a regular amount of credits at certain intervals, like when you get money from FrontierNav, and to make up for this ongoing cost, they have generally increased stats or something compared to other characters
so i just finished chapter 1
I DONT WANT TO SKILL THE WRONG STUFF PLS HELP I WANT TO BE UNIQUE AND NOT MEME PLS SENSEI AKNULUGE ME PLS HELP IM SUCH A NOOB
HOW DO I TURN CAPS OFF???????
The only problem would be the MC and possibly the fourth member, Elma and Lin don't have that problem. So it would be just those two, which would lead to people being annoyed. Either way people complain.
>Boze's final affinity
>find the target monster
>it's in the area where it has a bunch of lavas and platform jumping segments
>monster agros while I'm jumping onto another platform
>all my party members fall off into the lava and die
Nope. When you're inside for the last mission, your gamepad doesn't show the world map anymore, preventing fast travel. And the exit is blocked too. So when Elma asks you twice whether you're ready, make sure you've saved beforehand. And don't save again when you're inside.
Is there a good level up spot for levels 70+ in XBC? Or it's implied you must follow the story all the way to the point of no return, then do the quests and all the shitload of XP is supposed to push you to 90+?
Is it usually better to do this method or wait for the items to turn into more rare materials?
>Do first phase by overdrive cheesing via stellar entry for free gp
>Second phase, good, reflect the spikes, don't get hit, golden
>It then decides to start flying again
Fuck nice things.
I rushed him down and killed him pretty fuckin' fast this time around. I was just caught off guard with that mind control shit, i've never seen that in the game before. I guess the trick is to kill him fast?
Alright, after my seventh rematch with Nardacyon I don't know what I even did to make him actually die the first two times I killed it.
Agahsura seems to be doing twice the damage when I hit him in a certain spot, but I don't know where or what and neither do I know how to replicate it. Does anyone know what's going on here?
>find spirit wand
>find shiny lamp
god fucking damnit I hate this so much
I'm trying to get nopolith and nothing
Well, to be fair you're kind of a faggot for assuming i'm shit instead of assuming mind controlol. But I guess you probably get a lot of stupid questions here to begin with, so I probably would have assumed that too. I guess.
Ghostwalker dodges the mind control attack, I believe. If it's a real hassle, you should take some allies with treasure sensor gear as well, so they can get MC'd instead of you.
Now that my mim is godly powerful I feel the need to do the same with Elma, Alexa and Mia/Yelv.
Someone please stop me.
you saved the guy who was trying to poison the water? how??
For something like Yggs farming? Yes, though I have heard art gain gp can help you get into overdrive faster every time much faster so it makes appendage breaker kinda moot I think?
Be careful that some attacks still pierce reflect, in particular both Nardacyon and Pharsis do it.
For those, you also want to run Ghostwalker. GW + Reflect is completely invincible.
If I am having trouble with a particular boss or Tyrant, what can I do other then level up more or buy better gear to beat it? No idea what to do in terms to changing tactics since I BARELY understand the battle system at this point
Gradivus uses every element. His spin is phys, his stomp is grav, he has ether beams, he shoots elec, he does fire, and he also has a beam attack
Dadaan is right next to 307. Unless you can one shot him, don't fight him in a skell.

How hard is chapter 9? I accidentally finished everything needed for it before starting 8, but I'm still level 30.
Once you're invincible, it's just a matter of keeping your aura and ghostwalker up, doing damage is a secondary part, since he just sponges up damage forever.
Difficult because the fucking wrothian scum have cheap ass arts that make either resistance or evade, and the two assholes brought along friends and there is another fight after with skells, and they once again ask friends to help during the fight.
So yeah have fun.
So I'm about to do Chapter 12 when do I get to fight the Telethia and what Skell should I use?
Thanks mang. I'm not at the point where I can fight the squad bosses but my tickets have been fills up and I want to start collecting mats for the right stuff at least.
I'm not really sure what I'll do for a build at the end. Do you generally just fight bosses alone, or do you need to gear up not buddies as well?
Monster power is also based on size, not just level. The game tells you that around when you fight that first tutorial tyrant. So if it's a big fucker, come back at a higher level or with mechas.
Finished the Oblivia holofig hunt.
My HONK collection is steadily growing.
Hephaestus, the Absconder. Main character is an Astral Crusader. Really the only battle tactic I know besides getting better gear or a higher level is just trying to topple it. I barely do any damage to it at this point
For people who care about holofigs, my current squad has squad mission 20 active right now, which means an opportunity to get the Phanatos fig.
Nobody has done the Tersqual task yet, so it's up for grabs.
Whenever I beat a Tyrant or a mission is get something that says "x series". X being a particular name.
What does that mean?
Also, are what you pick up from collectibles random, or are certain ones in certain places?
Yeah that fight is bullshit. However, if you buff yourself up with gear that has 20 electric resistance each, you'll have 100 electric res and be immune to all of its attacks. Then you just solo it.
You can fight Telethia at any time. He flies around the top of Noctilum at the Divine Roost in the north.
Killing him is a whole different thing. You have literally no chance until you get an Ares skell (which is also very difficult.)
>You have literally no chance until you get an Ares skell
This is not an understatement. I ran into it with a team full of lv 30 Amdusias Skells, knowing full well I wouldn't stand a chance against this lv 99 enemy. And it still scared me with how every single one of my attacks missed and it's first attack after roaring dealt 35k damage
It's fucking beautiful though
All I know about squad tasks/missions I've learned by doing them myself. Since almost nobody bothers with the missions, this gives you a lot of attempts to do them and find the conditions to unlock the secret missions (like the Phanatos one).
There's a link in the OP for it.
>Probe Placement Images
Just scroll down through it, and know that it is outdated and some anons here have found a way to reach over 200k storage
PSA: It's actually retarded to wait for things to turn into rare materials as it's like 1 of 10~ items, and all the other materials get turned into tickets at a rate of 1:1 item to ticket; turning them in beforehand at battle spoils is like 1:86-99.
>No chance until you get an Ares skell
>this is what retards actually believe
Just hit her with a superweapon with high opening damage that skips p1
Then fly down below her where she'll land, ghostuwalkah and buff up
Kill her before she goes p3; this can be a pain to get the timing right, since it's a threshold thing, but you'll get it eventually. Only takes like 150~200 potential.
Always bring 2x Antispike
Yes. Even if it's not the next Xenogame Takashi is currently working on, that I've heard of, I think it'll come in due time. But does that matter when that next confirmed game will have motherfucking space battles?
If anything I hope we get new lines of skells from each race and we can actually fully customize the frames themselves as well.
A more indepth characreator to have even more unique mims/avatars.
I kinda wish they don't bring back the character creator unless they make it a separate thing from the base game, like the multiplayer aspect is literally a game inside the game itself or something like that.
On an unrelared note, memewalker with lightsabers for the reflect would need high potential? Its TP arts aren't that great so maybe it's better to invest into melee/element? Someone who runs that build could give some insight.
I feel like the inclusion of a create-a-character will eventually make you hate some part of the story no matter what because people will expect the character to do what you want.
Chapter 11 is a good example that's brought up, where your character does something most players would disagree on. Eventually that will happen and people will be angry about it.
What's a good duals/duals build? I've been running
with ether boost/core crusher/aura assault and the ranged combo/cd skills
It feels like my damage is being split up into too many parts which makes it really unfocused. At max overdrive count I'm usually hitting around 400k per stream edge hit and 150k per executioner hit
Here's a sketch of a Celica from the Art of Mira.
Does anyone know how to make the small text more readable either through the game or settings on my tv?
>No mention of Galactic Knight, the LITERAL Jedi class
My TV has a zoom option in one of it's options with 16:9/4:3/cinema. Two, in fact, one you can toggle the zoom and move the zoomed section around.
But it's not really needed, only when changing equip is it really small, if you are on the previos screen with all the equipment slots, the lettering is readable.
It means she knows what she wants and she wants that sweet potato
I bet the next X game is going to focus on her and her people more. We all know she had a bigger role before getting cut. We don't know who she is, personally. Is she just a small town girl where she's from or is she royalty?
I accidentally drove my first Skell into a pit in Oblivia about 30 minutes after I got it
Favorite line of Engrish lyrics?
No, I didn't do that.
I got out of it and tried fighting a Terebra that was ten levels below me on foot. Two more appeared and ganged up on me, and I started losing health so I got scared and jumped back in the Skell to run away. Instead I panicked and drove it over the cliff that was like 10 feet in front of me.
>TFW I wanted to play this class from the beginning because it sounded hype by the same
>TFW I chose right
I don't even know if I want to fuck with the other classes, I just like my lightsaber/psycholauncers combo.
I'm not sure if i should grind an ether nul katana or be happy with this end game ruiner
It doesn't need to be
Ayylma-complicated, asslong and three-times wider than the body, and with some bare movement horizontally the kind they implemented vertically.
I'm not asking for technologic advances unseen on the best engines but some minimum work.
Do you guys think Celica ever
holdsRock's giant hand?
With X, they obviously worked with the limits of the hardware and weren't afraid to show some of the corners they cut. Hair physics was probably really low on the priority list but yes it would be nice in the next game.
In the OP link, the collectopedia guide for Calderous features a thing called the Cave Area. I can't find any of the caves listed. One has no items, and the other is blocked by a red barrier.
They're all I need to complete all thecollectopedias. How do I get them?
Do you mean they play together but on their own, embiggening their fun with each other's display of entertainment?
It's certainly a possibility my throbbing Ovah didn't contemplate.
>Grinding for Ares parts
>Already blew a ton of tickets on hearts and cores
>Crude neilneil mask is 210 each nad you need 12 of them
>GN is lvl 60 ygg
Is there no hope of salvation besides "wait for a lvl 30"?
>That post credit scene
Wait, I thought
Elma KOS-MOSsaid that the people's consciousness was on the main frame in the middle of the lifehold chamber where you fight the VITA? Does that mean that not only are their bodies dead but also their consciousness?
what the fuck is L, what the fuck is happening on Mira, who were the aliens fighting the ganglion on Earth, when the fuck is the sequel?
Why in the ass are there so many groups of rogue faggot BLADEs who try to slap my shit for helping other people out? It's like every other quest ends with me completely curbstomping some annoying, arrogant human cunts. Do they have no sort of assessment before letting people into BLADE?
Maybe they let them into BLADE hoping they'd off themselves to the #1 BLADE killer Sirene, the Lost.
If I had the pick that showed its gold crown kill count I'd post it with this.
What I'm supposed to do when the Telethia turns invincible during its last portion oh hp? I have been tanking the thing for about two minutes and nothing changes.
>#1 BLADE killer
>Sirene, the Lost.
#1 has a Platinum Crown
that the main frame was more like the operating system of the whole Lifehold, whilst the post credit area was the 'stored files'. So the main frame is needed to actually do things with what it has, but ultimately, it didn't have anything to work with, except Elma
L is awesome, that's all you need to know. There's just something about this planet. The aliens who fought the Ganglion were the same species that Elma is, if I got that right. I don't know, but I want it soon. It'll probably be on the NX though
Since I've been going a few Celica's lately, have a bonus Ga Buidhe.
I was looking at enemy stats, and remembered you're forced to fight a Tyrant earlier on.
Only 284k people (connected to the internet) have beaten it.
Doesn't speak well for the sales of the game.
>a bonus Ga Buidhe
Checking both, Siren has Gold+1 (223k killed), Go-Rah has Silver+1 (81k)
The gap is ridiculous, and fueled by dumb cunts that think they can take on a Skell sized Tyrant.
I died immediately after that screenshot, I think I'll have better luck farming the meme zenith canon thing and one shooting it. Also the Telethia keeps stun locking me during its second phase, its quite frustrating.
>Check out a normal mission on the minimap
>500000 credits and 4 holograms as a reward
It has this attack where it crashes down, which'll probably kill your entire party at that point in the game.
I managed to kill it by realized you could also run while in battles, and that running away from attacks like those was a way to dodge them.
Nope. If you watch the opening scene, the Ganglion are shown using the same equipment they have in gameplay, but the ship is attacked in space by the other guys. The Ganglion didn't pursue because
a wizard captured them.
Oh, this'll be good. Why did they attack, and since they attacked, why didn't they give chase? Did they assume the White Whale was doomed as soon as it started crash landing, or is there something more?
is saving him important
his knowledge gets lost forever or something if he doesn't split right
I really need to replay the game and keep up with everything that happens
It's not bad to replay. You notice more details when you know what to look for. Making a point of listening to the NPC chatter also occasionally yields interesting or amusing things.
When I did this mission I thought there would be no other samples of water so I let him die and then later I'm told about this and the shower and the pigs and I fucking hate myself. At least I cut the blue wire on my own.
Is galactic knight a good class?
I usually just load as many mele arts onto my character and skills that boost melee combos, Is that a worthwhile tactic or should I focus more on ranged and buffs
I'm lv 23 rank 4
Sylvalum tyrant genocide complete.
HONK collection almost complete.
Also killing the Enhanced Defense Seidr was annoying as fuck.
You're entitled to your opinion, no matter how wrong it is.
>Reward: Holofig "Assassins"
Around lv36 and about to start chapter 7 guys, what the hell do I spend Miranum on? I've maxed out all the shops I have available. I guess I should unlock slots on gear but that seems like a waste because its lv30 gear.
Is there any way to spend miranum on enemy parts or something?
I probably could have done a better edit but fuck it.
Not that many people played it.
Enjoy what you can get.
>get flying skell
>look forward to further exploring the world
>every miranium source is either filled with tyrants/really strong flying enemies/really strong flying tyrants or requires level 5 mechanical
>in order to get level 5 mechanical, my level 35 ass needs to beat a level 55 boss
I can just save up some money and scout some level 60s to do it for me, right?
There's one on the eastern side and then the bestial utopia at northeast but I don't know about collectibles.
Near the lava cinicula for Off the record there's a cave, maybe there?
What do you exactly need?
Check their entry on the bestiary. They kind of upgraded themselves into cyborgs for better ninja skills.
The females are hot.[/spoilers]
Whether you've completed all data for that enemy.
Tyrants and special enemies get a yellow dot upon being killed once.
Normal enemies must be killed multiple times to get all info from them.
I'm honestly not sure what makes regular enemies be marked as complete.
I've got a few where I've got all droppables and still are unamrked, saying I don't know the weather they appear in.
I think it's just number of kills.
>ending overdrive with more tp than when you started
>enemy takes too many hits to kill without overdrive quickly
>enemy dies too quickly in overdrive and you end up losing tp each fight
i finally got the flight module!
and holy fuck i have to mute this game now. the constant switching from the normal game music to that DOGSHIT aerial song is maddening. And I want to kill myself if i accidentally fly too long and get too far deep in that aerial song. God damn did the signer do a 100m sprint right before she sang it? It sounds like utter garbage. Fuck.
If you go directly up from here, there's a bio lv5 tree thing at the top of the ring that gives you those head angel wings.
Explore where? I've explored a solid chunk of the game. I haven't gone to cauldros yet but I've put work in everywhere else. Don't tell me all the fucking probes are in cauldros.
Accodring to the doc all you need is to recruit the Wrothians and beat Chapter 1.
have to agree, but for me it's not that I hate the flight song (it's ok, not nearly as good as most of the outdoor themes) it's just that I have to listen to the same part of it over and over, as well as with each continent theme now. I miss being able to hear the entire fucking theme of a region. Very stupid decision to make flight have it's own music. Should've just been for the flight module mission.
Not too bad on hometown.
Not bad at all.
Who drops Mislaadi Female B?
I want to give Elma as much evasion as possible on the ground. What's the best of the best? What AM can drop evasion on their weapons?
Have we done any work on categorizing that?

I've wasted at least half an hour trying to find a decent colour scheme for my inferno.
I don't know if this is in the OP, but it's very useful
Weather info. What times you can trigger certain weathers and what buffs it gives.
Just started Murderess's Affinity Mission.
I want to cum inside her and take responsibility, but that's just an aside. The real question I have is related to the Scrap Duo. Does my character need to have it equipped, or can I throw it on Elma?
>it'd be GOTY
How about they reduce the fuckhorrendous grind, make online not restricted to shitty-ass instanced "Kill X trashmobs" quests that rarely even go to max level and just let teams of 4 tear shit up across the whole world (add enemy scaling if you gotta), and just shovel an assload of QoL stuff that it lacks, then it might be negotiable.
>H.B. likes to do push-up in front of Vanderheim just to drive the point home that he's gunning for his job
You miss so many fun facts if you never talk to people.
Found it if anyone else was curious what armor came on other skells.
