I had a silly Idea, and that Idea was to spend a day in base PSO2. Now spending a day in base pso2 is something I can’t do, but I can spend time there to make up for it.
There is something about Base PSO2 that NEW Genesis does not have, and it is that charm. It has that magic feeling of a bygone era of MMORPGs that a lot of new MMORPGs can’t seem to capture that feel or maybe they don’t want to.
Being able to join an urgent quest that started without you is a great feature. If you joined late, you can still catch up to the players. To hop in and get in the action is great.
After that, I fell asleep in the base pso2 lobby and woke up after. And I got back into the action with the seabed, a fun water level. And can I just say I miss the random events you find when you are out and about on the expeditions?
They range from mini-boss battles to silly events to get rare drops to you helping out your Auxiliary in combat events. There is always something to do when on expeditions, and it is never the same from point A to point B. And that’s why base pso2 is a good game with some features.
So, this is going to be a big post on Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis’s December update. And my thoughts about it are that I have a lot I want to say because I know other players were not too pleased by the headline. I would even say some were disappointed by the headline.
This blog post will be me talking about what I liked and didn’t like, what was good to show off and what was not good to show. I want to share my thoughts on the headline and what I’m looking forward to, in my opinion.
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis: Headline
Let me set the stage. It is 7:59 Am, and players are waiting for the headline before some sleep, going to work, or starting their morning. A lot of people have seen the update video prior to the headline. And if you are wondering, what video? I got you.
We all saw the Stia trailer two months ago. And we knew about the class changes. Well, almost everyone knew. Back to the matter. It hits 8 Am, but we have to wait 8 mins for it to go live. Also, you need to subscribe to the chat for a day to chat.
Sonic Frontiers. Oh man, what a wild ride this game has been. From fans and people feeling mixed about the game to feeling completely different after launch. From sega’s poor marketing to now, it has been interesting.
Sonic Frontiers is an open zone game and not an open world say dark souls, the breath of the wild, and so on. You do get the freedom to run around in these massive areas. And you have cyberspace levels that come as a second option* to clear a zone/island but you still need to explore the island to clear some of the story.
For me, I was worried that this game would be like Sonic forces which is serious at the start but becomes light-hearted. Or how the levels were going to be super short like Sonic forces but while that was not the case, for the most part.
The levels or stages were set up like Sonic Forces, but here, also had level layouts from other Sonic games like Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Sonic Generations, and more.
You have Green Hill, Chemical Plant, sky sanctuary, And a city stage as level themes. These are short stages but they are meant to be replayed and are not the main focus of the game since that was the open zone. being the selling point. If you were hoping the levels would be longer than Sonic Forces, you will be a bit disappointed here.
When Sega said this was an open zone-based game, I thought they were being fancy but no, they meant it, each area is a zone, meaning there is a load screen, a completely new area. And the zones do not connect like other open-world games.
Things I liked
Here is where I will talk about things I liked or loved.
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. I talk about this game a lot. It is almost like I play it or something. I want to talk about some cool things coming to Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis that are worthy of note imo. And talking about burnout.
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis October update
There is a new level cap. Go from level 60 to 65. And gain a bit more power and class rebalanced, and all weapons from rarity 1 to 6 can become level 60 with level 5 potential, which can be a placeholder if you can’t get a rarity 7 weapon, and on that note. It can put a 6-star weapon somewhat close to a 7-star weapon.
Rarity 7 weapons are here, new ones as rare drops at the moment. It is unknown if these will be stronger than Kaizaar weapons or not. And since you can get the new weapons for free (once for each class) by clearing the tower content with x class when the new tower comes out in the October update.
PSE bar will stay at level 2 and will go no lower than that. PSE Burst will happen by clearing a trigger NPC quest in combat zones. PSE Encores will have in all combat level zones. Speaking of PSE, there is a new one, PSE Burst f (forte)
And Rank 4 zones.
There is a lot of new content. And QoL changes coming soon. But at the same time, I’m feeling burnt out playing Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. Been feeling this way, and probably does not help that I have a lot of games to play. Elsword, Fate, Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis, genshin. And have a lot of things I want to do as well.
I thought about dropping Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis for a while, And I still have that thought because I’m tired of the game. The gameplay loop went from fun to somewhat enjoyable to not fun. So taking a break after maint starts will be good for the soul, and shutting out Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is what I need. I suppose.
Hey, so I am late for the party but don’t worry. Let’s talk about Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. It has been a while since I have done that, and I want to share my thoughts. And wonder about some things and answer a good question.
Wind Waker class
So this class is a summoner class from base Phantasy Star Online 2 but without feeding your pet junk. Waker uses no elements like fire, ice, lighting, and so on. It relies on the summoned pets to do the damage, but that’s not to say the waker class is weak. You can do some good damage with or without*.
To me, personally. Waker feels like a faster Force class. It has a lot of combos, single targets, and multi targets attacks. It’s fast, and strong but can drain pp like nothing. Waker can proc physical downs on enemies who can be weak to physical downs, of course. Not all bosses and enemies will have a physical down stat that is easy to proc but it will take time, but that’s it.
Some of the waker’s class skills are pretty great and make waker class strong.
You have three pets, and next to them is a counter. Get a stack of 1 melee and range, and you can use the fourth skill.
The fourth skill does a lot of burst damage. It can use one attack, but it is good damage. Great to use when the boss is in a broken guard state or a down state to get in that extra damage.
The yellow pet icon is your weapon action that acts as a negate to void all damage and add a stack to the counter. And as for the last skill on the far right. It is a better version of the weapon action with cooldown but only uses it if you think you don’t have enough time.
It’s another Phantasy star online 2 new genesis log, and I want to share updates and some old changes. And this will be a fun update with changes.
Cleared Dark Falz Rank 2
Something I was asked to join, and given I more or less was content with not clearing Dark Falz Rank 2, I was not too pressed with clearing this trigger quest since I was not that worried. But Aluria wanted me to have Dark Falz Rank 2 cleared for the sake of it. I was in no real rush.
It took me a few runs (8 runs, give or take) to get the hang of things given this trigger dark falz is one. But after learning, I was able to get by part 1 blue, part 1.5 red, and part 2 red was a bit of pain to get pass but by some luck, I was able to help the team clear.
It did feel nice to clear this trigger even though I think it is hard for the sake of being hard. And the team that helped me clear Dark Falz Rank 2: Aluria, Snowie, and DoubleDCritys. After a few failed runs, the next run was a success.
And even made good time to boot as well, and had time to spare should we need it.
DoubleDCritys gave me some rad items
My friend M0n had some LED sunglasses that caught my eye and had to get my hands on a pair but learned these were a base pso2 item and that’s when DoubleDCritys said they had a pair of LED sunglasses and they let me have them. It was a good day.
After I went to their base pso2 home to get the LED shades, I saw they had an outfit called Sakura Shinguji’s Hakama: Spring, and I was going to buy it for 40m last night since it was 4 AM and my decision-making became poor lol but DoubleDCritys came in to save the day :3
Making a second Kaizaar weapon
I made one Kaizaar weapon, and my next weapon will be Kaizaar boots. Aluria told me that the boots would be better than the Talis weapon and for a time, I believed that Talis was the better choice. After using Talis for so long, I am ready to make a different weapon.
My progress with the Kaizaar weapon has been good so far.
The only thing that is a pain is getting the cubes as that need more effort, a good party, and strong random players. Blizzardium is something I can wait for, every week 20 Blizzardium. I don’t mind at all.
I am almost done with cubes and I “might” try to farm cubes for a Kaizaar katana but I am almost done with this area. And with the rare drop rate on-going at this moment, farming cubes would be ideal since there may be more people farming ancients for cubes. And you know, strike while the iron is hot.
That’s all for these update logs. I might post another one in 2 weeks if anything good of note happens. See you then.
Sonic Origins is one of the most awaited games because people had access to the ports of Sonic 1, Sonic 2, and finally, Sonic 3 and knuckles all remastered and ready for game fronts like steam, PlayStation, and so on.
But there is something off here about the release of this collection, and what a great way to share the experience I had with the game. And look, if this is your first time playing the classic sonic games. or you never played them but wanted to, well now you got a chance to do so.
And yes, there are older collections out there that have Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic and knuckles, and sonic 3 and knuckles. However, if you wanted to play the Sonic 1 & Sonic 2 mobile remastered ports, you would need to get Sonic Origins or buy them off the mobile stores.
It is time to be cool. New genesis dropped the new update and content. And I want to talk about it and share my thoughts on it and what have you. There is a lot of good content in this update. It has been the awaited update and content and I am just one of many who have thoughts on this update. There is a lot to talk about here.
I will start with the good things here.
The good things
Level 60 cap. You can do more damage and reach a higher level of power and farming has been made easy. Yellow triggers give you the full amount of exp and got rid of the Exp reduction which is a godsend.
Sonic Frontiers. The big new Sonic game that has everyone talking about it but for the wrong reasons. So I wanted to talk about this game like I did with Sonic Forces and go into detail here, so bear with me on this.
We have gotten two video game trailers and two gameplay videos that show exploration and his basic moveset. And there are puzzles and collectibles and the combat focus video shows off more moves, combat, fights, and so on.
Let’s start with the first Trailer we got way back on Dec 9, 2021
Before I begin, I want to say this is all speculation, assuming what may or may not be, talking about the good, bad, and other things.
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)
Retem (21 – 35)
40.x% or greater
Update (36 – 45) + Geo Lab
54% 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hmm, Phantasy Star Online 2. A fun game pre-Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. Now that Phantasy Star Online 2: New genesis has some more content, I figured I would talk about it again. And another reason to blog about games and talking about Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis is very nice.
Looking back, I never made a review for this game, and while back then I love talking about the game. I think I can give some thoughts on this MMORPG.
What’s Phantasy Star Online 2: new genesis?
Phantasy Star Online 2: new genesis and not to be confused with Phantasy Star Online 2, is an open-world MMORPG. And I will say that in Phantasy Star Online 2: new genesis current state, the game is nothing like Phantasy Star Online 2 the base game.
New genesis is made for the casual players who found base Phantasy Star Online 2 to be too hard. And listen, I get it. A lot of players as they say, “sweat” in that game. And I get it you are a master at Phantasy Star Online 2.
It is good for sega and casual players for making this change. It’s how I see it.
Let’s do something new. So I talked about Mining Rig Defense in NGS. I figured I talk about it again, lol.
What is Mining Rig Defense?
The Mining Rig Defense is an urgent quest in Phantasy Star Online 2: new genesis, where two teams must defend three mining rigs from enemies that come in waves. Tower defense but in 3d. And you have to protect the rigs up to wave 8 being the last wave.
My way of doing Mining Rig Defense
There are some ways to do this, so I have one way going about this. And this way is something I use more often.
MPA with Witching Hour (Joining an MPA with some members feels like a public party).
Oh boy. If I have to pair up with Witching Hour members. My playstyle changes based on how people play.
I pick a mining rig to protect or land. This can change if I am needed elsewhere, like midlane or toplane
If people ignore charging towers, I will make a dash for it which throws me off my groove.
If I am defending a mining rig and the other rigs come under attack, I will prioritize which one needs help if the current rig I’m defending is safe or clear
I do not hold Wave 6 and 8 bosses as I focus on smaller enemies or the mini-bosses.
If at any time, my plan has to change because ppls don’t remember to attack towers that are charging up. It will throw me out of my groove.
Ideally, 3 users should watch mining rigs, and the other three should go to the top, and the rest handle and collect. But what ends up happening is some members aren’t geared up or leave their post to attack enemies, leaving their mining rig open to get hit.
Time for a rant. So, doing Mining base with the guild is a mixed bag. And, it is why a lot of the time. I do not want to join the mining base defense quest. I will never know if I will end up wasting time babysitting mining rigs and having my day ruined.
Or if I join, then it will be a pretty fast urgent quest where players are competent in their skills and gear. And they are not leaving mining rigs unguarded for attacks.
But with my experience in past urgent quests, they take too long. You are casual, great. You do you. I will not tell you to change but, this makes me not want to join people because it is such a gamble for me to join. If I wanted to waste my time. I wish to have fun doing it.
As we all know, having the best gear is good, having good gear is good too. It keeps you alive longer, and certain gear will buff your attack power in range, tech, or melee. And it is important to know what class that you want to play so you can gear it up to be ready to use well. Pick a class and sub-class, and mess around with it till you find a main class and sub-class you like.
Having units and weapons below max level is a big no-no. Hey, you! Yeah, you. Buying fashion? Focus on getting gear. If you can’t carry your weight, and that means your gear is not +40 and the weapon is not potential 4. You may /or will be doing next to nothing, and that right there is deadweight, and you don’t want to be a deadweight.
If you are wondering what a deadweight is, I will give you the meaning in my terms. A deadweight is a person who is there but can’t offer any use or support to the team. They can’t pull their weight.
We doing something different here. I will make this a long post. And take this with a grain of salt. This post is by no means a perfect guide. It’s more of a rant that has a few tips peppered into this post.
Editor’s Note: This guide is for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis before the winter update. This guide may or may not become outdated after the winter update. And big thanks to Aluria proof checking it, and helping me with this guide.
Disclaimer: This is a guide/rant about some Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis junk. Maybe you will find it helpful? And to be clear, this is just a bare baseline on what you should do. I have just been playing the game and been getting help from my friend, Aluria. And that I have a “basic” idea, and I’m tired of guild members wiping out like flies, lol.
Augments on your gear or lack thereof
So, this part is going to anger some members, but I think I don’t care. So I have not only noticed users not having any augments on their gear but have had the unfortunate experience of being in a party with them.
It’s not fun playing with them and before I go on a rant. First off. Have augments on your gear. That means your weapon and units. It’s shocking to see players running around with 0 to 4 augments on their gear.
If you can’t get the best augments, you can get the second-best or at the very least, get some augments that give damage. The point is, have augments on your gear, it really does help out, and on the plus side having augments will help you and your team out.
Plus, you won’t look like a deadweight if someone checks your gear and see you have little to no augments. But of course, having augments is not all you need to contribute to your team and be of use. There is more to it.
You might say “But Ony, I don’t play pso2 new genesis TM for that long. I buy fashion then gear later.” Ok, in that case, I got some options for you. And these are free options.
You can ask for help. Closed mouths don’t get fed. If you choose to stay quiet, then how can you get advice? More later on.
Look up the augments online, and find what works for you in terms of augments. Again, ask for help, if you are unsure. And check the player market, if you can’t get the best augments, you can at the very least, get something worth the money, and no, not fashion.
If you want the bare minimum and super cheap because you spend money on fashion to look good but be completely useless in action. Here is the BARE MINIMUM
Technique 1 > Meltech Dualble 1 > Nex Soul 1 > resola note /or tech III, > giga tech I > resola note > and nex soul I
You can ask around and look or do research on augments, as this is something I learned from my friend, Aluria. Just an idea of what you should get. Research, take notes, ask around. Something to think about lol. And keep in mind the market will spike in a while, so be on the lookout.
What each unit does for you, and depends on your playstyle.
Make sure your gear has augments. Please, please make sure you have augments on your gear. I said this before but please. I say this cause I have seen users’ units and weapons look like this. Don’t do this, and by this, I mean have little to no augments. see the following images below. please try to fill out all 3 slots or 4, if able.
I showed you the bad of having gear that has bad stats, let me should you what it should look like that has good stats.
The bare minimum you should have is as follows, if you don’t have a lot of mesta.
Pictures provided by Aluria
this can take around 30k mesta and depends on market or the fact you already have some of the augments laying around.
What your augments should be like. And yes, Using augments that increase the range of damage is better then using augments that boost defense as they do not matter much in early game, and you are better off having good augments that give damage.
Above the bare minimum. If you can afford it, try this out. This is affordable, but check market, if you saved up mesta and not blowing it on fashion. You can get this.
The idea here is to focus on getting the most out of your gear with augments.
And if you got the mesta and more than 1m you can try this. This is my force units below. Now, this is not the best but for what it does, I can clear most of the content in New Genesis with friends or whatnot.
Again, my gear is good enough to do content in the game.
Weapon level +40 – Affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed) – potential level 4
unit level +40 – affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed)
unit level +40 – affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed)
unit level +40 – affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed)
What have we learned? Always have augments on your gear, there is no reason not to at this point. You can even buy cheap augments that give a good boost to damage.
And they are on the player shop, you don’t even need to buy the high-end augments. If you can’t buy them now. You can buy something cheaper as I said before.
You can go after fashion when you have gear ready for content and such. The whole thing “my gear is not strong but I want to run content or urgent quests” is fine but to a certain point. Once we get better augments and better gear and harder quests or urgent quests like Sodam where you can fail, that’s when it will no longer it will become fine.
Your Gear level
Another important thing to worry about besides augments, and is the level of your gear but the higher your level on gear will unlock more augment slots
Level 0 to 19 = default 2 augment slots. 0/2
Level 20 to 39 = unlocks third augment slot. 0/3
Level 40 = all 4 augment slots unlocked 0/4
This is why it is best to upgrade your gear asap, as you can reap the rewards
You want to aim for +40 which at the moment is the max level for gear. If you can not hit max level, you can try +30 to +35 which is in that level range. You want to get the max level so your flat attack and flat defense is high as they can be, which can also be boosted by augments
+0 is bad, +10 not as bad as 0 but still bad.
+20 “bare minimum”, +25 slightly better than +20 but you want to go higher.
+30 to +35 is better than the +25 but you want to get to max level to make full use of units/weapons but it’s good enough till you can reach +40.
+40 is what you aim for to get the most out of your gear, I made that clear. And it will boost your battle power? If you can’t hit +40 then +30 or +35 is fine. Every little bit counts and it adds up fast.
If you can’t play for longer than an hour, go farm materials and grinders, as you will need a lot of them. It should go without saying but get fodder items. Exp weapons, weapons with no value or units with no value to enhance your weapon.
+0 to +20 may as well be 0 as levels go, imo. If you can, go for +40. if you can not, +30 and even +35 as a temporary spot is good enough until you can get to +40 before we get probably 20 more levels for gear.
Leveling up is good
This will be a short bit. This is just something I want to touch on. Levels are important. It should go without saying but getting to level 20 before the winter update will give you a good headstart.
Being max level may not seem like a big deal, but it adds up over time, and what seems small and unimportant will matter later on, and will be the difference between you staying alive or dying in an urgent quest / giga battle.
Level 18 – aim for this.
Level 20 – good
Level 21 – 25 winter update
Level 30 winter update
Level 35 winter update
Aim for level 18, at the very least. If you don’t like leveling, stop at level 18 or if you get to level 20. Just try to be a higher level than 15.
Please farm exp (fodder units and weapons) and get your units and weapon to +40 and get to the main class to level 20 and get a subclass to level 15 or 20.
There are people in the witching hour guild that can give you advice on what you need to do to make the most out of your gear. I should stress that if you do ask for help rather it be Aluria, Arisu, Daestar, Zargon, Elpha. You do the following:
You listen to their advice. Yes, it hurts to hear that your gear sucks but better to hear now instead of later on when people are doing new content and you won’t be able to. So please, if you want help with gear and tips, listen. Takedown notes.
Understand that you will need mesta, augments, and +40 gear (units) and weapon with potential lv 4 and affix attack lv 3 or higher. BUT ask whoever is helping you what is the best affix for you.
I say all of this because we got a new region coming soon with the Winter update which will raise the level cap, and by proxy, may raise the unit and weapon level caps as well as the augments cap, but I can’t be sure.
This is why you need to make sure you are geared and ready. Because later on, we might have an Urgent Quest where you can fail if everyone wipes out (everyone dies)
Mining base is a good urgent quest to see how tanky you are and how much damage you can dish out. As much as I hate mining base, it can be good to see the following:
Your dodge/block skills
learn what your high damage low pp skills are
are you DPS / or support?
how well you can follow orders when asked to do something
are you useful in action?
How good your defense is, and can you take more than 4 hits?
Learn if you are a DPS/secondary DPS / Support or buffer
It’s best to learn your class/subclass in a controlled area before going to test it in a non-controlled area.
Are you good / bad at luring mobs?
It is good to learn a class because like I said, there is no telling what kind of Urgent Quest may await us, it’s good to find out what you are good at, and being able to use 1 to no revives is a plus since later UQ’s will put you to the test in some way.
Let me say this. I am in no way a pro in Phantasy Star Online: New Genesis. I am a Force/techer who enjoys the game. And lover of cultured “wholesome” art, but let’s keep it real here. It’s lewd.
