Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis log 2

It’s time for another Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis log where I just give an update of progress in the game I have done or done with help of friends. And now with added thoughts and rants.

Day one – 05/01/22

My Cinquem Katana is potential two and I just need some cheap to make it useful for my braver class. I want to make braver, my second main class, first being force. Baby steps but soon that dream will come true

reached level 36 on braver with the help of aluria. Went from Level 35 to level 36 and now I can use mine Cinquem Katana.

My braver / melee damage has got much better and now I am able to use my braver class. 40.9% to 62.3% And for the current build of the game, I’m not going to be dead weight, and I can pull my own weight here.

I have better augments on my braver now. I got rid of placeholder augments and it feels great.

I’m going to save my mesta for the new gear coming in the new region since it will power creep the Cinquem series and make it an outdated weapon series later on. It will still be good if you are farming levels around level 36 and up.

My grant unit will be replaced very soon as there will be a free unit coming soon in a seasonal event, and it is +50 too.

Day Two – 05/02/22

Did some farming at retem rank 3 to get some exp. I got a fair bit of exp and I’m close to being level 37

I level up twice. Level 36 to level 38. I am close to being to max level

Showing off some new fashion now my braver is complete at this moment. I can relax and enjoy the downtime of content since level 45 is the endgame at this moment in time.

I have thought about doing geometric labyrinth or (geo lab) for short when I reach level 45 on braver, it should be fun solo or that’s the idea anyway and I got some thoughts about geo lab. I want to get at least an “A” rank if able.

Dae has a new waifu named Arisu. Cute pair, they are.

Did the retem Renus Vera urgent quest but rank 1 with a pug.

I watch Arisu become op. They have upgraded their augments and watching them improve was pretty neat to see since some users in the guild have mix match augments. They have some good ones but end up slapping on some weak augments that don’t help out.

I learned some things here by eyeballing. If you wanted to do damage, you would need to be in that range, and given that urgent quests and giga monsters have greater or different defense and stats a normal monster would not have

Keep in mind that you may or will need more potency in a giga fight or urgent quests since they are normal monsters but supercharged.

Potency needed to do damage
Aelio ( 1 – 20)20%
Retem (21 – 35)40.x% or greater
Update (36 – 45) + Geo Lab54% to 56% or greater

I may make a augment simulator or a bare basic one that shows the percent of your augments. I will make a guide that teaches you how to use, if I make it.

Clicker Heroes 2 let down

Oh man, you hate to see it. A game I followed and was actively happy for was called Clicker Heroes 2. It is an idle game where you get stronger over time. Being a fan of Clicker Heroes 1, and seeing the game devs look like good people.

I pre-ordered CH2 (clicker heroes 2) since I wanted to try the game out. It was crazy paying for an idle game since the first one was free. But I was hooked on the project since it seem like there was a lot of passion behind this project.

When I got to play this game, there was not much to do once you got strong. You go to a world, level up and kill the mini bosses and kill the main boss. And this was back when the game first came “out” I dropped the game after a bit since progress would get reset back to zero, and would make me want to play it less.

So why am I talking about CH2 (Clicker Heroes 2) today? I had a itch to play this game after a long while, and I booted up the game and checked out the store to see the game went from positive to very negative. It is crazy. I backed this game without question, so this hurts to see.

And yes, there was not much to this game other than changing how to “play” this idle game. And given the extra fact that people had to pay to play this game was or should be a red flag for me but it was not sadly.

I just learned about this whole matter and it sucks. And the whole matter of resetting progress is very annoying but from what I saw, there was a blog post that detailed the state of this game but the post was in 2021 and the game had an update that seem to be the last one on June 16, 2021.

The blog post seems to be them blaming themselves using an outdated engine and from my understanding. They blamed the negative reviews for making their workflow slower and they got death threats, which I have to say is too far. You can be mad but sending death threats over a video game is crazy.

the blog post will be posted below.

https://playsaurus.com/blogposts/TheStateOfCH2.html

And pretty much, the game seems completely dead and abandoned at this point, and should they return, I see the damage is far too great to recover since if they would come back to fix the game. Their rep and status as a game dev have been damaged enough that some people will be careful buying games from playsaurus.

And it is a shame too. I had such high respect for this team and to see and hear how this went down. It is a sad story. I wanted to see this game to the end. This is why you avoid early access games, as they can be a crapshoot. They get from point A to B or get abandoned after a year or two and that is the worse outcome. And the latter of the two choices seems to be common these days.

This will or has made me be careful of getting games from this game dev team after hearing and I will say be careful buying games from this game dev team unless there is clear proof their projects or games are close to complete.

Like, what is this? Clicker Heroes 2 is in such a sorry state, and I hate to see it like this. I should have never brought or pre-ordered this game and it is a shame that Clicker Heroes 1 is a better game than Clicker Heroes 2, and the first game is free.

If it is not clear, I recommend you don’t get this awful game, you are better off playing the first game.

That’s all I wanted to say.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis log 1

So, it is time to track my progress in Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. It has been a while since I did this, and figure I do it again. Should be fun, I hope.

Augmenting my new gear

My new weapon: Cinquem Rod+40 has been augmented. The augments are slightly weaker because they are level 2 versions of augments and not level 3. I will try to see what I can get later on and I need to get the new gear or units.

 

Schwarzrosso Armor is something I don’t have the funds for, and probably won’t get updated to +50 for a good while, but I’m not here to sweat this game. I did what I needed to do in Base Pso2. Everything in New genesis is extra for me.

Once I get the new gear to +50, new genesis will be on the sideline, and if progress takes too long, new genesis will be on the sideline as well. lol

My new units will not replace the old ones at this moment in time. But later on, I will be able to replace them, I hope.

Materials 

The Materials I have at the moment, not many but the list will grow later on.

Farming with randos

It was pretty fun farming with randoms, and not my guild. It is nice to see new faces and meet new users, and they were pretty nice and chill.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New genesis Feb update

Well, it is time to talk about Phantasy Star Online 2: New genesis (Again) and one of the big updates that have come with it, and just share some extra thoughts and whatnot. And the changes here are “big” for what it is worth. 

And given that this update is part one and part 2 is dark falz and something else, there are a few things here worth of note and some things that are not worth a mention in my opinion.

Jukebox mag

Ever wanted to play your music in Phantasy Star Online 2: new genesis but got tired of opening up links on youtube, Spotify, that shady video site? Well, now you don’t have to do that. With the new feature added by this update, you can play the music that you got in-game. And if you are like me, and never brought any CDs for your jukebox in base phantasy. This feature might be useless to you.

You can change what the current theme is, by picking your song and confirming this is the song you want to play. Some themes will override the jukebox feature, as they have higher priority. Nothing game-changing here.

You are better off using youtube, Spotify, or a discord music bot for music needs. This is a feature for those who love the jukebox in base Phantasy Star Online 2 and want it on the go. And unlike base Phantasy Star Online 2, only you can hear the music playing from your mag. Friends and strangers can’t hear the music from the mag jukebox when it drops those sick beats. Only the user of their mag can hear the music playing.

Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis thoughts

Where do I begin? I have so many thoughts towards Phantasy Star Online 2 / Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis because I spent well over 300+ hours playing Phantasy Star Online 2, and to see the state that it is in. It hurts, as someone who used to play other things, like genshin impact, Elsword, and fate go. It is not a good feeling.

The start

My experience with Phantasy Star Online 2 has been mixed at the start, but slowly got better over time. At first, I did not enjoy base Phantasy Star Online 2’s moment, and combat engine. It felt too stiff and slow for my liking. The affix system felt too arcade and harsh. Almost like a resident evil 1 game in how old systems were handled. User-friendly was not the main feature here. And while I still feel the same.

But over time, I grew to love or stand the combat engine, and other features. And with time, Base Phantasy Star Online 2 became a favorite of my MMORPG’s I enjoy playing. So to sum things up.

Hated the base Phantasy Star Online 2 start, but later on grew to love it, barring the affix system. It was a great MMORPG, and it was a game I could tell others to play Phantasy Star Online 2 because it was fun and worth the time.

[blu] Elsword log

So, Elsword has been getting updates, changes, and over all things to make life easy in elsword, although, too little, too late. It is also funny seeing some elsword elitists get so worked over opinions on a video game. There can be a whole post on these users, and how petty they can be or act. But this post is not about them.

Logging into elsword and playing after five months of stopping.

I will be logging in and doing content. Time to see how useful [blu] is this time. this is a progress log.

Day 1 – 06/09/21 of 11:33:56 PM

Day 2 – 06/15/21 of 11:33:56 PM

Phantasy Star Online 2 – Witching Hour log #5

It was fun making logs about Witching Hour progress, I think it is time to slow down on making Witching Hour logs. And so, this will be the last Witching Hour log, it’s fun to log the worthwhile events if any, but I want to go back to pre-Witching Hour logs where I noted my dumb progress. Lol.

Each day will be logged that I play or try to play. I want to make that clear that this was done on ship 1.

This log will be different, as this will be about my thoughts and progress. and something new at, least. For a last log, this one will be boring.

Day 1 – 06/23/21

Tried to fight the new boss, Gigantix with some people

  • was not strong yet and got one-shotted at level 15
  • one of the guild members whining about low-level people fighting a boss in an MMORPG.
  • the day was soured slightly or was slightly annoyed.

Spent money on the AC scratch

  • Got 2 things I wanted from the wedding banner.
  • The rest of the items are not good or junk items

Got the luster class in base Phantasy Star Online 2 to level 75

  • The next goal is getting to level 85
  • making a lightweave gunblade

Phantasy Star Online 2:New Genesis

  • koukideeznutz followed me on twitch.tv
  • I am unsure as to why both follow me, Fofa follows adult artists, and I’m not an artist, lol. And Kouki follows me because ???

Phantasy Star Online 2 – log #1

Oh, man. I want to talk about Phantasy Star Online 2 (PSO2) and the fun I have been having with it and doing solo missions because they are a blast. I started playing Phantasy Star Online 2 after Elsword made me mad. And it gave me a reason to pick up this game.

Nice

I started playing five days ago, and I’m already level 64 I have made a ton of progress. The game is a blast to play. I have been farming and playing with people and randos. The game is well made and has mechanics that, in my opinion, should be the standard for MMORPGs.

Weapon enhancing is not rng. One video game that is bad with this issue is elsword. And given that you need to have the materials (From Item mall or ed board or events) or your weapon breaks or goes back to zero. With PSO2, all you need to do is farm the weapon materials. You can “buy” from event shops or get in dungeons. Your gear won’t break but may even lose a level or two. But the fear of breaking gear is gone.

HellTaker

So I wanted to talk about HellTaker. This fun indie game that is free on steam. It’s a tile based puzzle game with a little of a visual novel on the side.

HellTaker - Main Menu and Beelzebub, The Great Fly
HellTaker – Main Menu and Beelzebub, The Great Fly

The story is pretty much, the main hero had a dream of having a demon girl harem. Waking up from this dream, the main character goes down to hell to make this dream come true, as it may cost him his life doing so. But no danger will turn our hero away, if it means a demon harem can happen.

Elsword: I became a raven

So, I never liked how raven played back then. But I didn’t know how to play as Raven. Kinda ignored him for 5 to 8 years. I also didn’t know how to play as magical characters.. But.. I learned after a decade later. LOL

Raven – Nova Imperator

Why did I start to play as a Raven? Or what made me play a Raven? This video. It made me give Raven a another chance.

MeteorFalcon – Elsword: Happy Birthday Raven!! – My Raven History and why you should play Raven

This video was about MeteorFalcon talking about his past with Raven and selling you on the Idea that you should play as Raven or rather play Raven Nova Imperator which MeteorFalcon wants you to play as. He mentions the other paths but Nova is the main star of this video.
