Ship 4 has TD1 on right now.
Too busy killing things so please wait until I'm done (´・ω・｀)
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.
Also best OP with Io in it.
It was good until it got to swimwear AKA ERP WEAR
The first three are good for FLESHIES
LAST TIME I CHECKED: METAL IS TOUGHER THAN YOUR SHITTY CLOTHES.
You're fighting enemies that want to kill you yet you dress like a fucking soft as fuck fleshie.
You should be scraped.
>You should be scraped
I wouldn't wish this upon my WORST of enemies. You are doing yourself a disservice by not embracing the freedom that was so graciously gifted to all the caseals when they were down on their luck before their transformations.
It doesn't matter what I wear because I will always be a god damn robit. Don't you get it?! It's not what's on the outside, but the INSIDE. Nothing, but fuckinnnn' gears and oil n' shit.
You'll change your tune soon enough mother F'er. You're stuck in this age of machinery and clankery, clattery noise. Move on gramps, get with the times, haven't you seen EP 4?! SEGA DEMANDS IT. CHANGE YOUR FUCKING NECK SIZE, ADJUST YOUR GOD DAMN GLOOTS, FIX YOUR BODY, FIX YOUR LIMBS, FIX YOUR MIND.
MULTI-LAYERED OUTFITS AMIGO. HAVE YOU HEARD THE GOOD WORD? CHECK THE GOSPEL, IT'S ALL ABOUT COSMETICS AND FURRY PETS. GLAMOUR MY NIGGA. SHINING LIGHTS AND GLITTER. JUST PUT ON A SWIMSUIT AND COME FISHING WITH ME. LAMO.
Apparently she's popular for some reason.
Is this because people have a raging boner for being addressed as "sempai" and it literally could've been any other female character that said it?
But I like armor on my casts
If I wanted skimpy outfits I would have a non-cast character
on a related note I got a cast Bo but I'm thinking of making another char, what class? Was thinking maybe ranger or braver?
I'll explain it.
Pso2 is a game that comes hand in hand with a number of other animes in collaberation.
Pso2 is one of the few games /a/ seems to connect with.
Most of /a/ favors lolicon, big breast, and tomboy fetishes.
When they come here they seem to magnetize to the closest thing to even look like a loli or a big breasted model of their ideals.
Knowing they can create promiscuous actions with other players as a loli or just a plain slut drives them to do strange actions which many can't understand.
In its own way, its a meme.
>Improved character customization
Yeah, all those points are great for my FLESHIE CHARACTERS.
I don't care if you'll always be a robutt, you're just degrading yourself to look like a fleshie. Enjoy being more fragile than someone wearing robot parts for enhanced armour.
Sure, we can go fishing
but only if you drown yourself or go to a scrapyard and be scraped.
>Being a fleshie
>Believing in a god when photons and shit exist
It's 8:17AM and I haven't slept yet. Cut me some slack, mate.
I need sleep to shitpost properly (´・ω・｀)
>Is this because people have a raging boner for being addressed as "sempai" and it literally could've been any other female character that said it?
Maybe, I don't actually know of many people with a heterochromia or tattoo fetish.
At least you'll get some use out of transmizer/banther against mechs/natives. (Provided you don't have better shit already)
I'm staying away from the current scratches myself, the new chip doesn't seem to be very good or at least it hasn't been in my fights with Ringa, it feels like a much shittier Psychowand.
would you say you can't scrape by without enough sleep?
I warned you guys about normalfags and tumblr/reddit invading and shitting up the place, but you didn't listen. /v/ isn't the gateway any longer, /vg/ is, it gets a fresh steady and direct blood transfusion from faggots riddled with aids.
Anything board culture gets 'loled' at and dismissed, like you're some ancient funny looking animal - the downward spiral turning you into reddit is because those idiots not tempered in fire and cancer come here casually, without having lurked /b/ until boredom and then accidentally clicking other letters, they come here straight from their sub plebs and Facebooks to compete for the most replies with their softcore passive aggressive dicksucking posts, what you perceive as shitposts are the kind of mentality and thinking required to post on reddit, lest you get down voted or banned.
You wouldn't listen, why didn't you listen?
i feel u anon, she seems pretty 6/10 ok at best.
im a normie sjw from tumblr and im here to ruin the game for you
yes its true
i came to ruin the game for you personally
and you give me the power to
One orbit down, time for the next. I'll get another 20 ele talis for pot A later because the gimped regen while sheathed is absolutely killer for fo.
I'm re-gearing up my played classes since I otherwise have basically nothing outside of a bio katana, a bio rod, and an ideal rifle for weapons.
Rod - austere
talis - orbit
katana - tokyo one when it comes out
bow - orbit
rifle - ideal
launcher - orbit when I max the bow
That's all I plan for now.

You do know that in almost every PVP game ever tank spec'd melee characters get shit on in PVP by ranged and casters right? They're nothing but a meatshield for group PVP. I don't know why you'd want to wish that on yourself.
>get super hard trigger in es
>couldn't even deal goal damage to it with a bunch of maxed chips because I can't release any of them yet
I'm such a leech
does sending rescue requests on other characters overwrite your last one, by the way?

At least send them on vh.

I just realized I'm retarded and misquoted.
Whenever it dies without the sword breaking in AQs I disband the party.
95% of the times the sword breaks anyway. Maybe you don`t notice it because you keep running EQs and thinking they are all of the quests worth running.
You faggot said that it would sell
But it didn't
Not them but here you go, I spent a lot of time on this image so I hope you like it d(´・ω・｀)
Because I felt it was kind of relevant, here's a comparison chart between the ep 4 stone tradein katana and the existing ones.
Only things of note are that the invade weapon has 75 attack affix (ie. default) while everything else is 150. , and that everything is 60 element outside of the austere 30.
What class do you play?
>Anything but force
They're great. The only arguable one is knuckles pot a vs pot b, because of limit break backhand smashing.
Get a pot a talis to +30 and call it a day, using it as a "running around" pp convert.
>we as a general hold this opinion
eh, I'd take orbit over these ones. Sure, these ones look cool (and completely ignore the "mg" factor of "tmg" since they're fucking handguns), but you either need 800 stones or 10 other 13* tmgs+7 5% boosters to max them.
The PAs/techs/skills/PB/consumables that friend partners use are determined by what you have set on your current palettes when you register it.
So if you want your friend partner to use Resta, for example, have it set somewhere on your current subpalette or any main palette.
If you don't want them to use, for example, Zondeel, just don't have it set on anywhere, and they will not use it.
If I set my subpalette like this:
Resta/shifta/deband/zondeel/zanverse/moon atomizer/star atomizer/Anti/PB
And have ilzan on the weapon pallette.
What are the chances of my friend partner using all those techniques and consumables? Or how does the friend partner pick which one to use?

I guess it's a rappy hat or something.
An anon in a previous thread asked me this question: "Why not SHAQ?" when I said I was looking for VHAQ runs. I now have a proper informed answer to that question.
Firstly, the capsule cost: VHAQ require 1 capsule for entry per run. This makes it incredibly easy to cycle through or spam a particular AQ because one run of the variant before (A > B > C > A) basically sets you up for 10-15 runs of the next, or makes it much easier to use the risk skip feature. SHAQ requiring 10 makes it a bit more difficult to do so, since the capsule payout at low risk is extremely lackluster.
On a 25 risk tundra, I only managed to get 10 F caps. This is in stark contrast to a 48 risk tundra, where I got 51 F caps, both runs done with no boosters. If you don't have the capsules to immediately boost your risk to higher levels, you're going to be in a circle of suffering because you might not even get enough capsules to even cover the entry cost without an actual party burst, let alone use the risk skip.
The second, and more important part: The exp. It's the fucking same as VHAQ, or if it is boosted, it's by such a minuscule amount that I deem it unnoticeable. The enemies are significantly higher level, and have more hp and damage as a result. If you're hunting level 17 PA discs, sure, go right for SHAQ. If you're after exp, run VHAQ because you'll get much, much more out of it, especially in a burst situation where enemies melt instantly.
You ignored the biggest reason to run sh: ultimate buster fodders. Quartz buster weapons go for millions.
Not to mention that everyone that is playing actively for more than 6 months should be already sitting in a good few hundreds of each cap and be able to kill xh mobs without much trouble.
For attacks, they'll randomly use whichever one that you have set. All PAs, offensive techs, as well as Megiverse, Zondeel and Zanverse.
For Shifta and Deband, they'll randomly pick one to use, usually after an interval. The interval doesn't seem to be fixed from what I've seen.
For healing like Resta or Star/Cosmo Atomizers, they'll use them when someone nearby has below 100% HP. They well use Anti only when someone nearby has a status ailment on them. Unfortunately, that doesn't include things like injury. They also may not use them immediately when someone gets hit by status ailments.
I'm not entirely sure about Moon Atomizers, but as far as I have played, and used many FPs, I have yet to see them use Moons on me if I get incapacitated.
For PB, they use it depending on if the person who summoned them has set FPs to release when filled, or keep for chaining in the quick menu.
If you're solo, yes. VH might be better. I'm saying might because I've done SH solo a few times and got 30+ capsules. Yes, I was using 250% but there's no reason not to. You get usually a ticket worth of cubes out of a SHAQ run anyway, and they're very common already so it's not a loss at all. In a 4/4 enemies melt fast enough even at level 80
unless everyone is leeching, but still not too slow, and I'm pretty sure you were still under exp penalty because there's no way SH is the same exp as VH.
I was level 72, so no, I wasn't under penalty. Solo, yes, because I never joined a team on ship 4 and like my own team name too much to join an existing one, and thus my circle of friends is basically non-existant.
I will compare the exp more directly a bit later today, but I am quite confident that the exp was basically equal regardless of VHAQ or SHAQ.

It's a meme here. I had a bunch of gaijins in my TD4 a few hours ago and I got S Ranks twice.There are a few people who actually believe this shit unironically, but they're just a vocal minority of beta weebs. They think that since they "fit in" with the Japanese, every other gaijin is below them and shit at the game by default. This is the only time they've ever felt superior to someone else, so they relish in it. Same thing with the "red room" shit, just a bunch of retards fighting over control of a virtual gated community.

I just know faggits when I see em m8. And you have to be a huge faggot with a bunch of mental issues to shit on your own people to get brownie points with niggas you don't even know. The tumblr mentality on /vg/ is a whole other issue though.
That comment was referring to the fags who use JP names, JP copy paste anime quotes on arks card, and spout wwwwww, hamster face, and Japanese memes in all chat and shit. these guys usually have huge superiority complexes and fit the actual definition of a weeb (people who think japan is the best and Japanese people are literally the master race). They believe they own the server because they figure they're *almost* japanese and they're the first to tell people to fuck off to SEA server/block 1 even though they are insufferable themselves.
The ones that use jp names when they don't understand jp are giant fucking hipsters I agree. I agree with most of your 2nd part as well, minus the hamster face. That thing just makes me smile, and I'm not even very weeb.
They can be insufferable sometimes yes.
Also it goes both ways for the faggots, any time ship is mentioned shit starts flying all over, from the leddit/psow eng containment ship to hipsters playing on literal who ships to the same faggots using jp name, www, etc.
You did sound mildly upset though, but I understand why. I hate most them, but when I had to pick after "trying" both ships I went with 4 because being the "BR" of pso2 didn't sit well with me.

I did hear about that, but isn't there a new class coming out with it? Though I suppose Summoner is a magic class, and so one of my characters could just be class-changed to it if I wanted, couldn't it?
For what purpose outside of major EQ bosses?
Not even for TD4
Would ice attributed maihime kaougi be stronger than fire attributed ares talis at casting ilbarta on bosses? Assuming max attribute, lv3, +10 and same affixes. Will the higher % from maihime overpower ares' higher tatk?
90% of the important stuff you'd need to be able to read can be done with just knowing the kana, especially katakana in the case of games. Item names and the like tend to just be english words nihon-ified with extra vowels.
You could learn both sets in a day if you really wanted to.
There's tons of good songs in this game, but a lot of the ones you hear very often like ambiance themes fucking suck. The TD songs, most of the boss themes, falz themes, and a few of the less-available maps (mothership for instance) are all pretty good but you head into forest or coast or something and the music stinks. Lobby is so-so but you don't really hear the main lobby theme very often at all, often replaced by some seasonal one.
Not sure how to word this, but do sub-classes only effect the main class they're attatched to?
ie. I make a Fi/Hu, can I then turn around and level hunter independently on it's own and eventually have a Hu/x build?
This is what you get with 2k unarmed attack +160 or so from photon flare.
try this w
>Casting ilbarta with a fire talis
If they were both ice you'd need 2.2k or so unarmed Tatk for maihime to beat ares
I've done all that except for affixing, though.

Well I'm working on my new units and I dont have the millions to blow on grinding my 13* so blow me
Cause none of the tails adjust to hair color like the ears do!
When we getting a vocaloid scratch i really need that dayo mag in my life
This is a good question. We got one summer '13 then again in '14 but no '15 scratch. Figured Kaito and Meiko would happen and maybe a Dayo suit but then there was nothing at all.

Mining Base 2
Anyone else think that it was a bad idea in the long run to inflate the HP of XH enemies? It's like Sega used original Shunka damage as a baseline for how much HP enemies should have, even though they nerfed it. This made the transition to XH needlessly painful in comparison to VH-SH. Left a lot of weapons in a bad place since enemies were made bulky enough to survive a pre-nerf Shunka or S-Roll Elder Rebellion with HP to spare, even though it wasn't possible to do that kind of damage any more. Especially with shitty drop rates making it hard to get even a decent 12* weapon. The backlash eventually became intense enough that Sega introduced 12* weapon and 11* unit passes, along with Xie weapons. And then we got another bandaid in the form of class weapon boost. Right now, it's possible to take out XH mobs quickly and easily, but I'm not sure if Sega understands what the real problem with Episode 3 is.
In hindsight, it seems like this was only done to give people incentive to grind for 13*s and set up the transition to the soulless stone grind that we have now. I can't imagine what it will be like when Episode 4 gives us a new difficulty. I'd advise you guys to move from Ship 2 if you're having problems with pugs and "friends" not being able to clear current content, because it can only get worse from here on out.
Not even gonna go into Summoner mini game and the implications it has on future p2w content.
Can't decide between
I'm dead because I don't fucking have anything to do aside wait for schedules
>Ultimate quest what's that? LOL
Te/Br can do anything that Te/Hu can do and more. You get a flat 50% attack boost on wand swings, plus weak stance for techs and access to banish arrow with t-atk bows.
basically this. te/hu can't do shit against a boss. it's pretty damn boring too, using only normals to attack with and not being able to cast for shit. You can't oneshot Exodas as Te/Hu either.
Do you understand what Fury Stance does to your wand swings including the tech explosion? Its more than Weak Stance.
Yes, go ahead and pull the bow out of your ass after we've established this was for wands.
I'd need to see a side-by-side comparison desu. I was under the impression that Fury Stance did not affect wand explosions because they were tech based. And why shouldn't I bring up bows? This is about Te/Br vs Te/Hu and tech casting/banish is a big part of their gameplay that Te/Hu doesn't really have any equivalent of.
The original issue was which one was better in general you retard. You were the one trying to make it about wands only for some reason?
Wand gear explosions are striking attacks that scale off of tatk, so fury stance does boost it. For pure wand smacking only, Te/Hu is better. However, has quite possibly the worst bossing in the game so yeah it is beyond a doubt worse.
>76% damage to wand smacks and tech explosions
>33% damage to techs
+massive hunter I guess
>+89% damage to wand smacks
>+26% damage to explosions and techs
weak stance (no weakpoint)
>+50% damage to wand smacks
>+48% damage to explosions and techs
But why does this matter?
>+50% damage to everything
>+115% damage to enemies under status effect with wand hits

It's one way to describe the sense of disappointment you feel when you realize you have wasted years of your life trying to be "hardcore" in a dying kusoge whose community rivals the homestuck fandom in terms of pure, unfiltered autism.
PS fanbase is angsty and autistic af, dude.
You should know that by now just from following these threads.
>mfw i wanted to point out that ps and pso fanbases are different
guess i am allready autistic
I don't, but everyone else is posting and I want to fit in.
I'll just get straight to the point. Why do any of you guys continue to play this game? It's obvious that Sega doesn't give a fuck about longtime Phantasy Star fans anymore or even the CBT players. I'd even go far as to say that they are pushing them away because the mobile game consumer base makes them more money in their eyes. I had no problems with SU itself until I saw how dumbed down and mobage-ish the gameplay elements surrounding it were. No JA, because it's a "beginner class" and obvious that grinding and affixing don't matter as Summoner, as long as your pet has high stats and you stuff Rare Candies down its throat till it gets to max level. PAs with insanely high base attack that have no JA required and put you safely out of harms way too! Sega basically fucked over everyone who spent months slaving over dudu counter fine-tuning their gear and I'm surprised no one else has commented about this.
I can't imagine the JP userbase is completely satisfied with ep 4 either. I'm sure when they signed up for PSO2, they wanted a good sequel to PSU, not Neopets with a side of a Candy crush. Or is it just that the playerbase in general has Stockholm Syndrome and doesn't know how badly they're bring taken advantage of, like Christians and Nintendo fans? Speaking of Nintendo, I think they're probably the only publisher who ever really got away with fucking over the hardcore fans of one of their major franchises. In their case, it's mostly because their older fans are brainwashed with brand loyalty bs and the younger fans are too young to know better. That's not really the case for the Phantasy Star fanbase though, so I'm puzzled at the generally positive reaction Sega got.
Anyone here feel the same way?
because they are finally getting me ass slider
It is what it is
One good thing though, at least they introduced a gathering system so people dont just lay around in lobby waiting for EQs. Bonus quest system is made to help that too, but by how much we'll have to see.
I dont hate EP4, but it's not that great either. If FI ends up being the only good subclass for SU then I'm definitely not touching that garbage. Hopefully pets are extremely squishy so guard stance will feel more validated in some way.
Either way, I'm sick of 12-man content because it ends up dumbing things down and this game's community is garbage
>they wanted a good sequel to PSU
>implying anyone cared about PSU
Sorry, here, in Ep 5 they'll bind PP to weapons and make it not regen, then make the healing items for them hard to find. Maybe they can bring back breakable weapons during grinding, that was so much fun. They'll also remove your custom character and replace them with a bland nice-guy-type hero, how were you supposed to self-insert otherwise? Maybe they'll even release an offline version that suddenly stops halfway through and requires online to finish, that's a feature we're really missing out on. And we'll finally be able to achieve Maximum Overmeme with a rerelease of the Kakwane Suit. These are the things we expect from Segac, and they just aren't delivering.
