for casts, you're always gonna look generic in 100% default bodyparts. it's inevitable
that said, you could have gone with a more interesting color scheme than white+accents, but whatever floats your boat
honestly just having the strongest weapon you can find at +10 should be fine until you have enough money (or patience to grind, if freemium) for top-tier 11/12*s.
by the way, if you haven't learned about affixing, it'll be a lot less painful and confusing if you try to ease yourself into it sooner than later.
Heres the gun I meant. Still need to get bit more RATK, but itll probably be a good swap, as itd give +280 R-Atk more. Im assuming affixing is something about putting ability from one item to another
Photon flare gives +120 (6 points) and +100 from after burst. So with photon flare I would have at least +100 TATK all the time if I keep it either up or in cd. Technique up 2 at 7 point gives only +39 tatk but gets the bonus from shifta.
If you damage seems a little fucky for a while, it's because extension messes with your damage variance early on, and fixes itself the higher you craft.
If you're ship4 and need a hand extending I can help you out after Demise, I think I can get red guns up to Ex12, maybe higher.
That explains it.
According to pedia, the red weapons dont have the +7star weapon variance which others have. Also, on ship2, and even if the damage is fucky, when I get to use it itll probably be a bit better weapon than my current 240 R-Atk rifle
Did I fuck my gun up?
You're on the right path. You can continue the extending up to level 13 but the resources and price will be more, including the equip requirement (can be reduced with special crafting items by 10% or 30%). If you cannot get a craft level yourself; you can request someone via player shop craft section to perform it for you (you cannot use the weapon until they fulfil the request amd you redeem or you cancel the request).
Max that grind level before working on your affixes. The potential is 14%/15%/16% damage increase for crafted weapons, so it's up to you if you want to get those other two levels.
Max level extension + potential + affixes will make it better than most 12* (this goes for every red weapon but like I said, some 12* weapons are still top tier to have, such as Psycho Wand and Lavis blade).
>"Just wait and see"
They probably have something up their sleeves for them to say that.
If the storyline in the main game is any indication, then I'm betting on a twist somewhere in the later episodes, which hopefully makes it interesting.
Alright, just trying out a bit.
Thanks for info. I think I'll keep it at 14% until I can get bit better units and stuff, but its still a nice boost. Might get grinding done after todays dailies if my luck actually permits me..
You can always undo extension (Not that you should).
If you're new to crafting, which I think you are, you'll need to unlock higher craft levels by doing the lower ones, a lot. If you're low on money getting another player to extend it is honestly gonna be cheaper.
>perfect run up to w5
>w6 apprentice beams all 3 towers
guess there's a first time for everything
>get A rank because people ignored the moths on wave 6 nuking towers until I got in my second AIS, at which point suddenly everybody wants them
Could've been worse I guess.
>tower destroyed in w1
>people with just one unit equipped
>people with ungrinded units
>people with half grinded blue luxe units
Don't worry, experience in XH is almost identical except everyone has a 75 above their heads.
AIS beam plus sword as soon as it comes out is usually enough. Some poor saps on foot will probably be trying to help too.
Its +5~9% per piece so no.
Axeon and EXP Boost are shit too since they are additives.
Just play in full party for a x1.4 exp multiplier, Exp PSE in EQ/AQ can boost up to x2.0 so theres that too.
Because you'll look like a fucking shitter and get put on the 2ch shitlist and get reported.
Stop being a fucking leech and just play the damn game. Exp 75% boosters are cheap and don't fuck up your build.
>play with good players
>vibra dies before it's done bombing
>play with shit players
>just DPS vibra since that's all you don usually

That's the secret of vibra bomb.
>Finish in 17 minutes with all three towers at full health
>Same happens for the Retry
Block 25 is so much better. Of course, now that I'm on it I CAN NEVER LEAVE.
You have a point there, but this isn't a "traditional" title, it's a free-to-play that's already been released in Japan and other regions. Most of the stuff on the billing side already exists anyway.
I guess the loss of exposure by not being on Steam would be problematic, though, but I can't see it being a dealbreaker.
>aika gets decapitated in episode 3
>zombies invade the school and the rest of the city
>it's the last days of earth
EPISODE 4 UP TO 10 DAYS REMAINED
post the reqs first
the fuck you want then?
solo contents with all drops untradeable and market for gears disabled?
4p contents where you and your friends have to schedule everyone's time to play together?
8p/12p single party contents where leader and everyone gear check each other and kick or leave out of party if you don't meet their requirement?
>hating on train
It's gonna have the best enemy design. I am telling it. Relentless bosses with large HP that fuck up Force shitters and jam WBs. Mobs comparable to pre nerf Ult naberius and Lilipa without those gay enclosed spaces.
It's gonna be more hype than EP3 release in balancing too.
But I can't think anything good of summoner
>4p contents where you and your friends have to schedule everyone's time to play together?
You have to schedule your time for EQs anyway faggot. At least you can make a schedule specifically made for players whose timezones you know and can spontaneously decide to do it when you get 4 people together.
>hating on train
not 'hating' persay, but its not fair to showcase EPIC bosses like kondi st million in a comparison collage
just putting the info fo TRUE FACTS that OG ep4 was great and new EP4 is gay homo fantasy online pick up stones 2 now with CUTE^_^pets and gay femboys.
OG EP4 was pretty much the worst episode. The first area is practically all copypaste, and there was only really one boss with two different reskins
Like, holy shit, it was bad PSO design in a whole different way and pretty much set the stage for the PSU debacle.
But maybe I'm ragging a bit too much on it, anyway, it was pretty much only a stopgap/afterthought between the card game and PSU. It wasn't trying to be particularly ambitious or anything, it was just something extra to do while they testbedded all the server-side stuff they were going to implement in the next game.
it makes more sense in modern English, I AM English afterall.
comparatively to ep 1/2 I absoloutley agree
the episode 2 expansion was really great in retrospect, but episode 4 was a welcome expansion of the same formula as >>128766419
mentions it being around 2 years before PSU im sure they knew working on a new hot shit installtion of the PS online series they prolly threw a fue people the old assets and said make something in 1 week go go i imagine
thinking PSU would be the new KILLER APP lol
fat rappelz pls share ur cake ;w;
>episode 2 expansion was really great in retrospect
It would have been, if we didn't gloss over that the first half of it was just rehashed battle mode stages repurposed for the regular game and filled out with not-even-reskinned EP1 enemies
im sure we can blame gaycubes tiny CDs w
id rather have rehashed good content than NEW FRESH OC gay summoner jewlpet happines school anime hello kitty collab.
new ep 4 makes anything from the past and especially PSU look like a god send.
at least we had PVP back then lmaso
plus great battle music
Okay, so can anyone explain to me the story behind each TD?
I assume TD 1-3 is Yuka/Apprentice trying to raid Lillipa in search for the Dark Falz Apprentice body, with TD2 adding Elder's Darkers and TD3 adding Luther's Darkers.
But then whats the deal with TD4? I skipped that first cutscene so I can't tell whats going on.
Aurora, the photoner who was originally transformed into Apprentice, appears from Yucrita and leads you to Ult Lili. There you find anga who is attempting to eat the sealed power of Apprentice. You defeat it, but that causes the power of Apprentice to absorb Anga and reawaken. TD4 is you digging down into the depths of Lilipa to destroy it.
Okay, but if Aurora is Apprentice, then who is that black girl with the purple hair?
And what the hell is Dio Hunar anyway? Its not Matoi. That was Viel Hunar, that one-off Story boss.
Well this should be helpful for knuckles and tdags. Also not main class only.
we super mario RPG now
Bo/Br sounds good on paper, but thing is you're pretty much left with a shit ton of points in BR with no place to put them. At least you have versatility with Bo/Hu
Triple Jump with Bouncer.
It has a bit better % modifiers but it requires some positional movement and you lose out on any defensive skills
this becomes noticable when you use boots due to their unruly nature
Fi/Bo used to be a thing, but the new 13* jet boots are far stronger than the Red Boots/Zerenheit that Fi/Bo got. Without access to Limit Break and that Critical thing, Bo/Fi is just a weaker Bo/Hu. And you gotta deal with that dual stance bullshit.
With the chase stuff and a fi stance BoFi can be stronger than BoHu at mobbing if you can keep statuses up often enough, but BoHu is stronger on bosses and more reliable in general.
here's some more skills if anyone is interested. RA and GU's were one point and self-explanatory. GU one is main class.
All here, http://dengekionline.com/elem/000/001/199/1199133/

>thinks channeling his inner spirit into elemental photons is easy
only talented ARKS can manage to do it
the rest of you can't use photons without a weapon
it shows how savage you are
I want to bop shit to the head without feeling like i am using knux or have to be under massive shitter thats all
UQ are pretty great but there are only two areas and none bothers doing them these days
Truth be told we're probably already on a blacklist if you're part of any of the Teams, go to redrum, spam SA or autowords, or generally just don't look a way they like.
Thought you were the announcement Rappy.
IN 1.5 HRS QUNA CONCERT
IN 2 HRS PROFOUND INVASION
So some faggot in my team is claiming that the anime has already revealed the major plot point of EP4. Is he full of shit?
Unless it's a huge bait-and-switch Aika the mysterious transfer student is clearly an actual real ARKS and not just another Earthling scrub playing the video game
Other than that there are some mild hints here and there about some weirdness going on probably related to this Ether Network thing they use to play the game.
>Ether Network thing
You mean the internet?
It sticks out pretty conspicuously as a thing they keep bringing up
You know, in the other universe's (PSO, PSU) timelines "ether" was theorized as being a thing before photons were discovered, too, if I'm not mistaken, so that word choice there probably isn't a coincidence either.
>Phantoms coming to life and causing chaos with modern day technology
>Implying I didn't think of .hack first
That shit really bothered me. If you're gonna be lazy and use 3d models make sure to at least make it somewhat smooth. Does this anime have a small budget or something?
or are they saving the real budget for when things get real and there's nonstop rappy slaying action
It's the stupidest thing but I've heard pretty much everyone does it this weird jittery low framerate way to make it feel more like animation or something. You see CG like this even in higher budget work.
What the actual fuck is this thing.
The only thing I'd say is mandatory if you're going to buy AC is the inventory expansion, because being able to carry 50 extra items is so very important. Anything else is at your discretion, so buy according to your desires. I will say that premium set is pretty worth it too if you're going to be playing a lot.
Question. I plan on leveling up my Hunter, Ranger, Gunner and Braver through a horrible method of subclassing Bouncer. I currently have a set of Bio Boots. Should I make Live Boots for the extra damage? I'll be Hu/Bo for a while to get those skill points so I can go back to Bo/Hu.

>9/12 wiped at the sword spinning phase
how the fuck?
Stop wasting your time looking at other peoples' gear and just kill the boss. It's not like someone with a shitty rifle is causing you to miss extra runs of the EQ. Someone could bitch about you too with your level 57 sub in XH.
Except that's a launcher, and he was the only ranger in the MPA, and it did nearly cost me another run actually. They could complain about that, but they'd be pretty fucking dumb considering I have the fury tree maxed out so all I'm missing is utility stuff. The boss was already dead too, so yeah.
How do I actually flag my account for PSO2?
I actually managed to get through the moonrunes captcha at the time but I must of clicked the wrong button afterward and it registered a segaID but I'm not registered for PSO2.
I have the following:
Nepto Rod for ice
Bert Rodan for fire (gonna get ares talis later)
Caduceus for light (austere talis 1/2 done)
Gal Wind for wind (best element pls no bully)
Nox for dark
Two of those I just made for the upcoming new char slot, gonna make a fire/light/dark FO then. Right now I am wind/ice/light.
Gear is different per weapon.
For boots, you can increase gear by hitting things, or by charging a tech. The gear goes down over time or if you use the vinto gigue PA. Doing an attack that doesn't hit anything won't build your gear.
You got two options, farm for stuff like bert rodan (SHAQ only) and nepto rod (Facility free field boss) or run EQs that drop decent tech stuff and start working towards 13*.
Magatsu drops divine rod amaterasu which boosts light techniques, if you extend it to the max it'll have stats on par with caduceus.
It also drops a talis that boosts fire tech damage and one that boosts lightning damage.
There's also motav prophecy if you catch a profound invasion EQ
Profound darkness EQ drops a talis that boosts ice damage.
Dio weapons if you're desperate, just remember there are far better choices and that you should replace them asap.
I'd recommend trying to catch magatsu and profound darkness whenever possible to get the fire and ice boosting talises and amaterasu or something else as light asap so your damage in ultimate fields is good enough.
As long as you can aim those ragrants with it not really
its just that rods mesh better with light techs due to ease of use plus stronger compound techs versus a similar rarity/potential talis
Well think about how the start of the story in pso2 was pretty slow as hell and just random boring character building until about the end of episode 1.
First few anime eps are pretty bad but HOPEFULLY it's setting up for something good.
>Decide to install English Story patch cause why not
>Twerker DL's the transam, begins making story backup
>15 minutes later, only at 1700/3286
That'll be 500yen for some kids games thanks :)
That's about 4 dollars a day? Spent on AC. Rough math with rounding and estimates, but it can't be far off.
You almost make me want to try, just to get some 13*s for other classes so I can dick around on them and not have to deal with a weapon for... forever basically.
Too bad I have no job.
>having to min-max when the stats are fucking tiny now compared to what they used to be.
They are basically worthless stat wise now, well not worthless but alot less impactful than before.
I rolled human, jack of all trades is go.
>Not owning a dudu punching bag already
Think about the shit eles, all the lambda grinders you'll need, and the fact that one of the two types is what you'll want in terms of lasting value and being easy to max.
Unless you want Nemesis/Slave it's not a reasonable thing to do. And, I was probably absurdly lucky with the 13*. The last two I got were just today.
So, I already know that this is a bad mag.
I just want to know if there's a way to fix it, or I may have to reset it.
Ultimately, which stat should I focus on?
>I just want to know if there's a way to fix it
you can fix it by using 50 excubes to downgrade by 1 level
>I may have to reset it.
given the ammount you need to do it just buy a new one its cheaper than reseting your current one
L-look how much fun we're having.
If you only have one character capped at 75, I would recommend creating a new character instead. Unless you don't really mind buying a new one. Because I would rather buy a new character slot than another mag.

I think you mean

>Perfect clearing EVERY SINGLE STAGE IN ES
I wasn't expecting a damn thing but I'm still disappointed they were too much of a lazy nigger to actually give you a single good chip for it, or even just rappy medals.
By soft for example, in non-TPS mode. Say you're on Floating Continent. You use Guren near one of those lightning pillars, you'll automatically target it without even locking on and go to it instead of straight in a line. It's like an auto aim.
No, toggle as in turn of that auto aim.
I can't help myself guys, I just fucking love Io.
She's all I think about, I eat sleep and breath Io.
I want to be her Senpai, her guidance and her lead example of what a great warrior is supposed to be.
I want to watch over her and protect her when things get too heavy to handle on the field, and carry her back in my arms if she does get injured even if I'm injured myself.
Yet I want to show her why she and I have such great feelings towards eachother, why when she sees me her heart flutters and gives her weak knees,
and why her sweet strawberry scented hair, her soft velvet feeling skin, make me want to wrap my arms so tightly around her small frame to make a small cold girl stop shivering from my warmth.
I can't help but think of her blushing red cheeks in contrast to her silky short blue hair, brushing it from her face as she gets tsundere with me while stuttering the words Senpai to me from her soft glossy looking lips.
It's almost a nightmare at this point knowing my dreams cut off before my lips make contact with hers, its so taunting that I don't think I can live without tasting Io's lips.
No anon I would go full autistic about it and play BR.
If I was there in game with her, I would be her protector, her saving grace that would take a blow for her if anything got remotely close to hurting a single hair on her precious little head.
I like to imagine running to her if a monster is about to attack her, the enemy too close to her to shoot with a bow, and I come up to slash it down or take the blow for her to protect what was just now a feared look and turn it into one of tears and happyness that I saved her from harms way, even if it's hidden in the moment of worry about my safety.
Trying to debug scanner, it seems to skew the page a bit being its one of those portable scanners, almost figured it out.
>3 AISes spawned
>Falz Angel doesn't even end up dying
>had to practically duel Hunar the whole time
I don't get it. What's hard to understand about piloting and AIS? A single AIS should be able to kill all three within 2 minutes, and another should be able to take care of most mobs and walls.
What were they doing that whole time?
That probably would have been a really fun, clutch run if I could break outta Stone Farming Online mentality.
I couldn't force my way into the other ones this time.
You're not totally incorrect, I'm terrible at this with a katana. I'm tempted to use it for collecting, but I keep regretting it afterwards.
Do you have a slow load time?
>I don't get it. What's hard to understand about piloting and AIS? A single AIS should be able to kill all three within 2 minutes, and another should be able to take care of most mobs and walls.
SO I CAN SWITCH TO THE STUPID FALZ
The base I was next to was locked down pretty well, but
I CAN SWITCH
TO THE OTHER DAMOTH
>Consider making a GU/RA
>Consider deleting my BR for it
>But the time I spent on it compels me not to
I already have plans for a FO with the third slot coming with ep 4, so really Im torn over what I want to do.
Anything/Fo is a bad idea due to Fo's limitations on being solely a tech caster, and Elemental Conversion makes it so any techs that don't come from a Fo main are always going to be weaker.
There's some great news for you. You can actually change classes whenever you want to on just one character. No need to ERP it up between multiple waifus to fulfill your harem fetish
Yeah but my MAG is all fubar and I'll have to collect a mass of excubes to fix 50 some-odd levels of mistake.
>implying I want to go through the effort of getting pso2es to work on my phone so I can buy AC for it

>not carrying a giant floppy dong on your head
fags, the lot of you
retouch masteries, give greater insentive to using Rods over talises, remove that retarded photon flare crap, etc
Honestly, Force is just fucked up. But unlike most of Sega's mistakes, that fuckup is what makes them so stronk.
They also sorta need to fix Bouncer too. Switch Strike ruins the whole theme.
move your win32 folder somewhere safe
Then fucking uninstall the game completely
Optionally, after that, reinstall the game, start the official launcher, let it update the launcher itself, but before it downloads the entire game again, cancel and close it, then move your win32 folder back
Now run the official launcher again, let it filecheck and shit, and then make sure the game can run at that point
If it starts up just fine then, that's when you are free to start messing with the tweaker shit
I wanted to make a David Bowie partner machine but there's no turbo mullet hair
Switch Strike would be just fine if casting with boots wasn't a big joke in the first place, something that would be possible if Force was a viable subclass
What, like a Launcher/Wired Lance combo PA where you shoot harpoons from your launcher and grab an enemy and then spin them in a giant circle around the room smacking them into things?
pompadour tier list best to worst:
Sweet JP -> Dandy -> Takamura -> himekawa -> everyone else
that's because it is
I don't think there's been a single time in my life where I've worked sliders without it becoming a total disaster
Sure, who are you, where do you want to meet, etc etc.
Let's give Force (oh and I guess Techer, sure) a great damaging spawnkilling tool and the bossing they never had on a new type of Technique!
What? Give the other classes something? No, we'll just cover Force's flaws, which weren't ever really significant anyways. It's okay that we take something good and make it better while leaving everything else in the dust. They'll just claim they're slightly at x or y (except in the case of a Compound Technique!) all on their own, the suckers.
Yes, melee fags should get something like "Photon Awakening" that boost all damage by 100% for 60s after doing 2m accumulated damage like Compound Techs.
Ranged fags should get something dumb like each normal attack become full charged End Attract for 5 seconds, so they can spam like 20 End Attracts in that duration.
